The most effective solution that can be applied for baldness is undoubtedly hair transplantation. You can have your old appearance back thanks to this process in which the grafts taken from the donor area are transferred to the hairless area. Hair transplantation is an extremely effective method and fully meets your expectations. So, will the hair transplantation scars after the operation go away? What kind of appearance will there be? The answers to all these questions are in our article.

Does Hair Transplantation Leave Scars?

Hair transplantation techniques have improved incredibly since the first day they were developed. On the other hand, the scars left after the surgery are still considered a significant risk. Techniques used today can still cause scars. However, it should not be forgotten that the experience and expertise of the surgeon performing the procedure and the accompanying healthcare team are as important as the technique.

The preferred technique is very deterministic for scars. However, different factors other than scars are also effective in choosing the technique. Issues such as the expected result, the amount of healthy graft in the donor area, the size of the hairless area, and the cost should not be ignored.

The size of the area removed in strips changes depending on the amount of graft to be used. Before the procedure, the patient is anesthetized and the area where the strips are taken is sutured.

In the FUT technique removing the grafts in strips makes scarring almost inevitable. Unfortunately, these scars are also evident from the outside. They can only be hidden when the hair grows, but they are very likely to be visible when very short hairstyles are preferred. The size of the scars will also differ depending on the size of the removed strips.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”FUE Scars” color=”peacoc” custom_font_container=”tag:h2|font_size:25|text_align:left|color:%2304acce” custom_google_fonts=”font_family:Anton%3Aregular|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal” custom_css_animation=”fadeInDown” use_custom_heading=”true”]In this procedure, grafts are removed one by one from the donor area. Then they are placed in the canals opened on the hairless area and the process is completed. During hair transplantation, hundreds, sometimes thousands of canals (incisions) must be formed for the number of grafts to be transplanted to the patient’s scalp.

The size of the opened canals is 1 mm or less. These small wounds that heal after the procedure may cause scarring. However, since the wounds are tiny, the scars are not noticed from the outside. An extra effort is required if one wants to see them closely. We can even say there are no scars as they will be hidden under the hair if the hair grows even a little.

If hair transplantation scars can be easily seen after the FUE technique, then this is the surgeon’s mistake. The reason is that if this technique is applied successfully, there is no risk of scars being visible.[/vc_toggle][vc_single_image source=”external_link” alignment=”center” custom_src=”” caption=”Via”]

Hair Transplantation Scar Removal

Different techniques can be used to reduce the size and visibility of the scar left after the FUT technique. However, these methods do not guarantee success and some scars remain at the end of the procedure.

It should not be forgotten that the scar on the scalp will be more visible and more noticeable with increasing age.

Another method to be applied for hair transplantation scars is to transfer grafts to the scar formed by FUE. After the relevant process, the visibility of the scar will decrease significantly. However, the effects of the relevant method may differ depending on the thickness of the scar. Medication can also make scars less visible.

Scalp Pigmentation

Scalp pigmentation is the process of applying colored pigment directly to the scalp. It is also known as scalp tattoo and medical hairline tattoo. It is an effective method for hiding the scars left after FUT.

The pigment color to be used during the procedure is determined by considering the hair and skin color. Hence, a harmonious image is achieved. The application of the procedure may take one or several sessions depending on the size of the scar.

What Should I Do?

If you have not had hair transplantation yet, you can consider the FUT technique, which leaves scars for sure, as the second option. You can choose the most recently developed methods instead of this one which causes an apparent scar in the graft area. Thanks to advanced techniques such as FUE and DHI, you do not have to worry about scars.

In FUE and DHI techniques, the wounds on the scalp are quite small. Tiny wounds are not noticed even they cause scars after recovering. Since they will be very small and will be hidden by hair, these scars will not create any problem for you.

Hair transplantation scars do not disappear, but as there will be very small scars in a successful operation, they can be easily hidden. Even if you have an eye on your back, you can hardly distinguish it. Therefore, it is not visible from the outside.

If you do not want to worry about scars after the operation, you should choose the right technique. If you have had hair transplantation and you have an apparent scar on your scalp, you can examine the section below for the most permanent solution.

There are significant differences between the quality of the clinics and hospitals performing hair transplantation. It is a known fact that the majority of such clinics and hospitals do not have international standards such as CI Joint Commission International, ISO International Organization for Standardization, and TUV Technischer Überwachungsverein.
