How many mm is considered a good, average and below average hair transplant scar?
- If it’s really thin, has hair growing through it and it’s hard to find, it’s an A or A+, depending on how it’s concealed by that individual’s surrounding hair.
- If it’s the width of the comb teeth that I’m using, it’s probably 1mm or so, and it’s a B for me.
- If it’s much wider, I’m disappointed and it’s a worse grade.
Remember, this is how I grade myself and not meant as a grade of other hair restoration surgeon’s work.
