About Hair Transplant Scars
From the early days of hair plugs, we have come a long way in regard to hair transplant surgical techniques. However, still patients need to remember that scarring is an inevitable byproduct of the procedure.
Usually, there are two types of surgical techniques that are used widely to perform hair transplants. Each of these techniques produces different types of scarring. Irrespective of this, one must remember that the skills and experience of your surgeon play a huge role in determining the amount and visibility of the scarring that you are left with.
This is why you must only get a hair transplant done by the most qualified, experienced, and talented cosmetic surgeon. This cosmetic surgeon will also choose the best hair transplant technique for you on the basis of several factors like:
- Hair loss pattern
- Amount of donor hair
- Quality of donor hair
- The size of the area where hair has thinned out
- Doctor’s fee
- The type of scarring you expect
It should be noted that irrespective of the type of hair transplant that one gets, the results will start showing within a few weeks of getting the hair transplant.
How is a Hair Transplant Procedure Performed?
There are some steps that will vary depending on the type of hair transplant technique that your plastic surgeon selects. However, there will also be some steps that are common for all hair transplants. Let’s go over that procedure right now.
The hair transplant procedure begins when the doctor extracts hair follicles from the back or side of the scalp, which are the most common donor areas located on the human body for a hair transplant. After extracting the hair follicles, the hair follicles are transplanted to the balding or thinning area.
During this transplantation, there will be some incisions made on the recipient area. These incisions will result in scars on the recipient area. However, as mentioned before, if the plastic surgeon is qualified, skilled, and experienced, then the visibility of these scars can be greatly reduced.

How to Hide Scars?
Another option is to conceal the scarred area cosmetically. This may be possible if your hair grows over the donor area.
Certain scars, such as keloid scars, may be more difficult to conceal than others. Keloids are raised scars that expand beyond the original surgical scar.
Keloid scars can persist for months or even years. Keloid scarring occurs in some people.
Understanding Hair Transplant Scar Removal
What if the presence of hair transplant scars is very disturbing for you? What if you simply want to get rid of those scars as soon as possible. In both of these cases, you can talk to your plastic surgeon about getting the hair transplant scars removed.
In cases where individuals want to get scars completely removed, then the best option is to look at cosmetically getting the scars removed. Some procedures that can help you get rid of scars cosmetically are discussed below.
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)
Scalp micro pigmentation is also known as a medical hairline tattoo or scalp hair tattooing. This is a permanent procedure that works by injecting pigment directly into the scalp. This gives the appearance of thicker hair.
It should be noted that this procedure can also be used to color in the scarred areas that have been left behind after the hair transplant. This procedure might take several sessions to complete depending on the size of the area that is being injected.
The ink color chosen in this procedure helps match the current hair color. One should keep in mind that not must discomfort is felt during this procedure. However, this is not suited for all patients. Only rely on the expertise of your cosmetic surgeon to discuss which procedure will be best for you.
It should be noted that TMP is a temporary form of SMP. This procedure provides semi-permanent inking because it inserts the ink into just the top layer of the dermis. Usually, the length of time that inking from TMP lasts can vary anywhere from six months to three years. This procedure might be physically uncomfortable for some people.
Laser treatment is popularly performed for reducing the appearance of scars. It is sometimes used in conjunction with SMP or TMP. However, it should be noted that the latest technology in laser treatment is very effective for scar reduction on its own.
The laser treatment works by targeting and removing the damaged skin on the surface of the scar. The treatment also helps stimulate collagen production in the dermis layer of the skin. This further helps in rejuvenating the elasticity and overall appearance of the skin.
