I fear having left with a hair transplant scar, almost as much as I fear getting completely bald, and not receiving a hair transplant. There is a dilemma. However, there is not much reason to have this fear because hair transplant science has progressed massively in the past 15 years or so.
The new hair transplant technique is less invasive than others. It is often called manual FUE but some surgeons prefer the use of special motors/robots to perform FUE hair transplants. Another important point: hair transplant is not a new phenomenon, and the doctors who have been performing hair transplants for the past 10-20 years are very skilled and experienced by now.
If we consider these facts, there is not need to fear because the new hair transplants do not leave you with a scar. In the FUE hair transplants, unlike in the FUT, the hair follicles are extracted by micro needles one by one. Only your donor area is used for that. And not all hair on the donor zone is extracted. Therefore, you are left with tiny scars covered by your hair on the back of your scalp. You will not have scars on the crown of your head, or on your hair frontline. They will appear natural.
If you have scar from hair transplant, it may be possible to repair the results. Why hair transplant scar repair? To cover the FUT hair transplant scars, to cover scars due to surgical errors, to cover scars that have appeared after the hair transplant without any particular reason.
The repairing of a hair transplant scar is often done by another hair transplant but in some cases, you might get cosmetic surgeries on your skin. The cost of the repair should often be less than a full head hair transplant but it also depends on the deformation. Make sure you choose the right surgeon for hair transplant scar repair; one who is experienced in such procedures.
