Revision hair transplant and scarring


Question:
If you receive a second hair transplant, will you then have a second scar?

Answer:
Using the newer automated follicular unit extraction system, the donor site scar is not very perceptible at all. The technology involves using an extractor that is smaller than 1mm in diameter to harvest hair grafts under local anesthesia. Unlike the older/traditional strip method, no linear scar is ever seen. Stitching and staples are not necessary.
