Scarring from a strip procedure is a big concern of mine. What method do you use to close the donor area, and how noticeable would this scar be? For example, would my barber notice it while cutting my hair if he cut it to 1/2 inch length?
The person above is talking about removing a stip of skin for donor area harvesting, the common standard surgery for today’s hair transplant. Only about 5% of the population will have a scar wider than 2-3 mm on a single surgery. With a deep fascial closure and trichophytic incisions (see Techniques to Minimize Donor Area Scarring ) these numbers should show a smaller incidence. Even with a 2-3 mm scar, you should easily be able to cut your hair to 3/8th of an inch without being observable.
