I Want My Donor Area Repaired So I Can Shave My Head

Dear Dr. Rassman,

I am looking to have the donor area from an earlier procedure eliminated so that I could wear my hair extremely short or shaved.

Please let me know what you recommend.

Thanks in advance.

All cuts on the skin will produce a scar and most cannot be completely eliminated. Scars can certainly be minimized depending on the individual healing characteristics so that short hair is a reasonable option. At New Hair Institute (NHI), we continually strive to incorporate scar minimizing techniques in all our procedures and will tackle repairs of scars if they are there. Please refer to Techniques to Minimize Donor Scarring. Your original hair transplant surgeon should be able to address your scar. If not, I would be happy to meet with you in person or by phone to discuss your options.
