The top of my scalp seems to be pretty tight. Would this tightness be a problem for hair transplant surgery?
I have had patients that had tight scalps with very little elasticity who I recommended we try follicular unit extraction (FUE) and got good results.
The best way to determine if your scalp is too tight for follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS) is to visit a hair restoration physician. Sometimes a patient will describe their scalp as being very tight and upon physical examination the scalp has good elasticity.
