My five-year-old recently had something fall on her head, and it cut her and left a scar. It is on the front of her head, so it is fairly nodicible. I could part her hair differently, but I know this will probably bother her when she gets a little older. I was wondering if there is anything you can do to help. Is there any was of restoring hair where the scar is? Is my daughter to young for a small hair restoration procedure? Please help, I know I should have been watching her closer to prevent it.
Hair transplants are great at covering up scalp scars from accidents. It would be a fairly easy procedure depending on the size and the location of the scar. However, at 5 years old, your daughter may not tolerate the discomfort of the anesthesia and comply with the healing process. As it is a cosmetic procedure, it is my opinion that she should wait until she has a better appreciation of what is involved in such a procedure and drives the process herself.
