I wonder if a prospective patient should/could look at other scars on their body (e.g., other operations, old injuries etc.) to help predict the possible outcome of his/her hair transplant scar?
I posted a case a few years ago that showed a guy with a large keloid (a white man aged 40) on his neck from surgery elsewhere and we were fortunate to have an almost imperceptible scalp scar. But, the patient and I discussed the chance of getting a bad scar before proceeding.
All things you should discuss with your hair restoration physician before signing up.
