I was wondering if there is anything that can be done with raised scars on the top of the scalp from hair transplant plugs? I read there is a possibility of cortisone injections? What about just making the top of the head more dense with SMP?
Everyone is different, so there’s no exact solution I can provide without seeing you and getting a better understanding of your individual case. Special cortisone injections may help, but that depends upon what we are treating. If the elevations are due to the mass displacement of the old plugs in atrophic skin, then the cortisone shots might not help.
Hair transplants around the plugs (especially in the frontal hairline) does wonders for camouflaging them, correcting the abnormal hairline — and then even Scalp MicroPigmentation (SMP), when properly used in the right places, might help further.
I would have to see you to determine what can be done appropriately. Out of curiosity, how long ago was your hair transplant that you got the old plugs done?
