Iam 64 yrs old. I had transplants done in the early 80’s. Donor hairs from the back of my head to the front. In time the rest of my hair from the top fell out. The transplanted plugs looked ugly and I resorted to wearing a hair piece. I recently started to shave my head and I like it except for the scarring on the back of my head and the in front of my head where the plugs were inserted and hair grows. What can be done? The shaved look is really in style and I don’t want to go back to using a hair piece.

Your options are very limited, unfortunately. The plugs can possibly be removed, but you’ll still be left with scarring in that area and in the donor area at the back of your head.

Scalp Micropigmentation could be an option for covering the scars from old plugs. Many men with bad plugs and bad hair transplants have opted to shave their head and cover the scar with SMP, giving them the appearance of a closely cropped hairstyle. Each case is unique, but I doubt you’d be able to completely remove scalp scarring.
