This hair loss question was answered by Dr. Glenn Charles of Florida who is a member of the Coalition of Independent Hair Restoration Physicians. His professional answer is below.
I was wondering if hair transplants are really undetectable. The reason I ask is that I recently spoke to someone who had an FUE procedure and at the front of his hair line you could see small dots where the hair was coming out from. Does this fade with time?
With the technology available in the field of hair restoration, the results should be virtually undetectable. Certainly some hair transplant cases depending on the patient’s hair characteristics are more difficult than others. Some patients may require more procedures to achieve the same degree of undetectability as other patients get with a single hair replacement surgery. Often the small dots you are describing do fade over time especially after the hairs start growing. In some patients additional grafting also helps that situation.
