Is It Possible to Conceal a Hair Transplant Scar?

   Hair transplant operations are to restore the lost hair and have an aesthetic look; but the idea of a scar caused by the procedure always intimidates the people who think about having it. Although usually the results are worth even for scarring, there are many people giving up on the operation because of it.

   The scarring issue after hair transplant should be acknowledged with its details since not every technique leaves the same level of scar. Usually the scar tissue expected by patients is linear and extends from one side to another at the back of head; however, this is not the case for all the hair transplant techniques.

Which hair transplant method leaves the least scar?

     The techniques and technologies for hair transplant operations are developed very much today; so the issue of scarring is quite minimized. Still, hair transplant scar is the reality of the old popular technique FUT.

   FUT technique is performed by extracting a hairy skin strip from the back of the head and collecting the hair follicles from that strip for transplantation to the hair loss area; the technique is invasive since the removal of the skin strip requires stitches afterwards. The area where the linear strip is taken out remains as a permanent scar tissue after the operation.

   The scarring issue is different for the newer technique of FUE. FUE technique is done by collecting the hair follicles one by one from the donor area-which is usually the back of head-via micro tools and transplanting them to the recipient area. The procedure involves no stitches or any skin removal; therefore, does not pose a serious scar possibility. The maximum of scarring a patient may experience after FUE would be little white dot shaped scars in the donor area, where the follicles are harvested. These little dots are only visible if the hair is styled very short; so the technique is often accepted as leaving no scar and more suitable for those who are hesitant about the scarring issue.

How to conceal a hair transplant scar?

   If you had a hair transplant and are uncomfortable with the remaining scar, there multiple solutions. In order to find out the best option among those for your own condition, a professional consultation with a specialist is very important.

   If you suffer from FUT scar, one option to get rid of that linear scar is to get a FUE hair transplant into that area; the new follicles will cover the scar. But then again, before the operation the scar tissue should be examined carefully since sometimes it may not be suitable to receive new follicles.

   FUT scar can also be treated with a scar revision operation; in this operation the scar tissue is surgically removed by using better medical techniques and the new scar tissue is much less visible.

   Laser treatments are also available for scar treatments; laser is helpful to stimulate the skin and collagen production and thus reduces the scar tissue.

   Just like hair transplant procedures, hair transplant scar treatments should be planned very carefully as well; whichever is suitable for your case, be sure that all your necessary tests and examinations are done delicately.
