I’ve already had two sessions of follicular unit extraction (FUE) with more than 2.200 grafts to 2/3 of my scalp. I did the first two sessions on September 20th and 21st, 2012. It’s now 8 months after my hair transplant. Next September I’m going to do a last session to the last third of my head, it’s the crown zone.
The clinic where I had my hair transplant is considered one of the best out there. Many celebrities use this clinic. Now, in one of my sideburns I have a little scar with no hair (it’s very tiny but noticeable). It’s from an accident I had when I was a kid.
It’s no big deal at all but I still want to ask this. Is there any problem with fixing the sideburns? Does hair loss occur in the sideburns over time?
When I perform a hair restoration surgery to the sideburns, I usually find the part of the donor area that has the coarsest hairs. I have not done beard hairs to the sideburns but I don’t see why this could not be tried.
However, I do not think that body hair transplants, including from the beard, are as successful as grafts obtained from the scalp.
