Minimise The Look Of Hair Loss And Scarring Post Hair Transplant

A hair transplant cannot replace like for like hair lost so relies greatly on creating the illusion of fullness and natural density; this is achieved by strategically placing and distributing the grafts over the surface area

The obvious purpose of a hair transplant is to give more fullness of hair in an area of hair loss over the top of the scalp; and with this when the result has grown out is the question of hair style and hair length

A degree of hair length is required to enhance the illusion of fullness, the longer the hair gives greater coverage and blocks the light from reflecting off the skin

The better the hair characteristics the more flexibility in hair styling and hair length is available; coarse hair and a low hair to skin colour contrast help and allow for a shorter hair cut

The shorter the hair the less coverage is produced per hair and the scalp becomes more visible, this is true in the recipient area as well as the donor area

Regardless of technique, FUT or FUE, no one can promise that there will not be visible scarring in the donor area, and the shorter the hair cut the more obvious this may become; either the linear scar from FUT or cylindrical white dots by FUE

With either technique donor management is important to minimise any visible scarring, to not over-harvest with FUE and thin the donor and with FUT respect the laxity to ensure a neat closure
