I have a lot of thick dark hair on the nape area of my neck. If I were to have a large strip procedure, could I then have the nape hair planted via fue into the strip scar so I could wear my hair short?
You can do this, but you will have to wait until the scar forms and heals (6+ months). If you are worried about wearing your hair short and scarring, why not just do the FUE procedure instead of the strip as that will obviate a linear scar? Keep in mind that neck hair does not behave like scalp hair as it is not permanent in many men as they get older. Anatomically, the neck starts below the skull, so if your feel the scalp and the skull beneath, and then move down, the nape of the neck is encountered without the skull underneath it, just muscle. As I said above, ask your doctor about doing an FUE for the entire hair transplant.
