Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) vs Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) for Hair Transplant Strip Scar Repair?
Around six years ago I had a strip hair transplant surgery that left me with very wide scar. I have had two strip procedures: the first as mentioned 6 years ago, the second in December 2015 which has turned out great and has left a thin scar. I would like scalp or body hair placed into both scars and would also like to have some hair into my temple triangles too if possible. My main aim after the procedure would be to be able to wear my hair short with a nice frame to my face, so if future loss occurs I can still crop my hair fairly short, without using concealer on my scar.
I would love people’s advise, or anyone who has had a similar experience who has had follicular unit extraction (FUE) or body hair transplantation (BHT) into a scar and can now wear their hair short.
