This question, from a member of the Hair Restoration Social Community and Discussion Forums, was answered by recommended hair restoration physician Dr. William Lindsey:
I was reading some recent comments from patients who seem worried about their follicular unit transplantation (FUT) scar stretching. They worry that this is noticeable to people they first meet. I had hair restoration surgery 10 years ago and the donor scar has never been my concern because my hair grows on top of it and it’s invisible. So why is this a point of obsession for some? What happens when it stretches? How does it look?
