At age 30 I had three procedures with a doctor in Pittsburgh.The results were excellent.The focus areas were creating a hairline and giving me forward density.The scar seems almost invisible now through the hair. My question is I’m now 40 and would like to shave my head with a number 2 clipper.With the hair cut short is it common for the donor scar to be visible? Greatly appreciate your thoughts on the matter.
Each and every person is different. Some people with no scar can not cut their hair with a number 2 clipper if their hair is straight and coarse, because there can be a subtle difference in angle above and below the area that was cut. Small scars may not be seen with the same shave if the hair character is good and the scar is minimal, yet larger scars may behave differently. Best to try it on a vacation with your hair cut short and see what you got. We can speculate, but the ultimate test is to just try it out. I have many patients who cut thier hair short, even to a crew cut after a hair transplant with no problem at all.
