I have a small, linear non-transplant scar above my ear. It has healed pretty well, and is looking more and more like normal skin each day. I’ve been thinking about transplanting hair into the scar by an east-coast doctor, about 100 grafts is my guess. If this were to be done with FUE, is there a huge risk that the scars produced from such a small FUE procedure will be worse than my linear scar? I want to be able to wear a buzz cut (somewhere around #2) as I believer my hair is thinning and short hair is a better look. Should I be very worried about moving just 100 grafts from the back of my head into this scar to minimize it?
Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a good way to fill in a scar, but not all FUE is the same. Different doctors use different techniques and instruments. As long as the FUE instrument is less than 1mm (ideally 0.8 of 0.9mm diameter), you should be OK.
I am flattered you would ask me, but I would ask this question to your doctor since you need to trust the surgeon that will be performing the procedure on you!
