What are the factors that influence hair transplant scar quality?
The most important component to getting superior scars is minimal tension on the skin edges before putting in the skin sutures. Taking the load off with a deep layer or 2, whether it’s on a facelift or hair restoration surgery, has been shown for decades to limit widening in most, but not every, patient.
As I’ve posted many times, 1 in 30 of my hair transplant patients get a wider scar. Interestingly however, in 3600 or more facelifts, I personally know of only 2 cases of widening in front of the ears. Definitely more forgiving statistically than the scalp.
