Submit YOUR OWN PICTURES or shut up.
Hi. Nice to meet you.

I'm going to have a small FUE procedure done, myself.

In researching the potential donor scars that result, I started to gather pictures to better inform myself of potential outcomes. And I thought that others could benefit if such a resource existed, too.

However, given a couple responses that seem to not be so enthralled with this idea, I might just delete this thread.

Although I expressed my concerns I think this thread could be helpful to people so please don't delete it. Perhaps it might be an idea to contact people whos photos you'd like to use to make sure they don't mind. The problem with relying on submissions is you're unlikely to get any of the worst examples of scarring so it might give people a false impression. Sorry to be a pain!

I recently had FUE and it would have been nice to be able to readily find examples of FUE scarring beforehand. So it would be useful to have some sort of thread, sticky or otherwise, where potential patients can go. After all, there is a rather comprehensive thread somewhere with loads of images (some gory) of FUT scars. With that said, the FUE vs FUT debate can get heated so it probably won't go well.

I had my first surgery (over 5,000 grafts) in 2012. I had my second surgery about 2 years later. After my head was shaved for the second surgery, Dr. Vories photographed my donor area. Approximately 1,700 grafts were taken from this area with a 0.8 mm punch. I agree that any surgery will produce scarring but I felt like mine was barely discernible and I'm sure no one would notice without it being pointed out to them that surgery had taken place. This is my observation, I'm sure others may see things differently.

Question
Does how clean it looks post op or in the first 2 weeks = how it will be long term

Can you get a good feel for it by that time or is it too early


If the area already looks ruff and white dotty by that time do they get better over time

Also we should add a section of what x patient did and see if theirs a Correlation that help minimise post op care scars . I.e slept completely upright first week or took hgh or kept donor bandaged for week. Washed 1x a day or 2x ect. Supplements
