  1. These are the surgeons words: “Scar repair can be achieved with a few different techniques. Excision of the scar with closure is no guarantee for scar improvement, but they may have a role for improving some scars that are a result of bad surgical technique. For example, if the current scar is very wide.This does assume the scalp has proper skin characteristics for a good heal. I occasionally see patients with good scars (i.e. narrow, thin scar) thinking that an excision with closure will give them an invisible scar, which is not true. A narrow but detectable scar is better off having grafts placed in the scar line via FUE. I would need to examine you to determine the best course of action for your scar repair. With respect to a scar repair, you can certainly consider doing this procedure even now. I would recommend FUE grafts transplanted directly into the scar. Depending on the size of the scar, you will likely require about 100-150 grafts into each scar.” I assume my scars are my on the wide side. I assume she’d just perform scar revision? Will have to wait until December 22nd for a definitive answer.
  2. Working with Dr. Nadimi in Chicago. Said she could work on my scars via FUE method. 100-150 grafts per scar. After a transplant, will I be able to cut down to a 1 and still have decent hair density in the scars? Scars are attached photo below. The scars are not surgically related. I was born with them.
  3. Thank you for clarifying this. I believe you all answered my question and helped me make a good decision. I'll be taking the images down for now for privacy. I'm on the east coast and will seek out a consultation with Dr. Konior.
  4. If I'm not looking to wear my hair short at all times, isn't this a bad idea? I usually wear my hair longer (2 or a 3) when I get a haircut. But it would be nice to get a zero at the back of my head so that I can get a nice transition during tapered haircuts.
  5. No. I have no problems with hair loss, recession, or male pattern baldness. I simply have scar tissue on the scalp I'm looking to get repaired.
  6. What would be the advantages and disadvantages of opting for Scalp micropigmentation over a hair transplant? I'd eventually like to grow my hair out. So wouldn't that mean that the longer hair would look unequal with the scar tissue if I wanted it to grow?
  7. Hey there, new guy here. Breaking up my posts to prevent writing a journal. I have two pretty nasty scars that I received while I was being delivered. Apparently the pressure was too intense for a natural childbirth when I was coming out, so I needed an emergency c-section. Had to shave my head for college Army ROTC, and this is pretty much what it looks like when it's worn short. I'm working with a surgeon right now to repair some damaged eyebrow hair, and he has said that he can also perform scar revision. However, since the scars are so deep and likely have very low blood supply, he does not feel that the results from an FUE would be very beneficial. Clearly, an FUT will not help me. I'm looking to do the military after school, so I will probably have to have my hair buzzed like this most of the time. Looking for some second opinions. Thanks!
  8. He mentioned that he offers FUE. I have yet to discuss this with him. However, I’ve researched that FUE can be less reliable with keeping hair intact after it’s been inserted into the hairline. I believe this is why he prefers FUT over FUE due to the survivability chances for the follicles. Is there another reason, besides scarring, for why FUT is not ideal? I think he said the scar would be just about a centimeter
  9. The 100 graft FUT was the suggestion for the gap in my hairline. I mentioned that earlier in the original post.
  10. Could you tell me why FUT for 100 grafts would be frowned upon? Is it due to the risk of shock loss? I was under the impression FUT was the more preferred option since it allows surgeons to be more precise and the best chance for the hair to survive
  11. Hard to see with the camera angle. But here are some side shots of my face that shows the sparse spots a little more clearly. They never used to look like that. - Here is an example of their prior appearance before the botched job. I could certainly ask him about FUE though. He provides both. With regard to shock loss, I'm not sure what would happen to be honest. I'm not a doctor, so someone can feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. But I believe that shock loss is more prevalent with people who have weaker hairlines due to MPB or Recession, so I imagine I shouldn't face that much of a risk from shedding hair? Never had an issue with hair loss my whole life. Again, I could be wrong As a side note, I’m based on the east coast if it matters
  12. Hey everyone, first post I suppose I am a bit of an outlier around here. I have no history of male pattern baldness or a receding hairline. My hairline is actually pretty solid. Rather, I am a young patient (early twenties) seeking a transplant to repair damaged hair follicles near my widows peak and my eyebrows. It's a bit embarrassing, but the backstory is that as a teenager I was insecure about my widow's peak because a barber told me it was ugly and suggested that I shave it off. As a result, I started overzealously tweezing my peachfuzz to prevent regrowth. Now I can see years later how I've created a gap and can see scalp through my hairline. For my eyebrows, I had a pretty traumatic experience at a waxing salon because a worker botched the job while she was waxing my eyebrows. While they mostly grew back and are still thick, it left numerous bald spots that created a less harmonious look and made me feel very self conscious. I'm seeking out Dr. Champagne in California because he is pretty renowned for handling eyebrow transplants. It's one of his most popular procedures and he seems to have great success rates with both ordinary and celebrity-level clients. As a Beverly Hills surgeon, he also happens to do hair transplants for men. Unfortunately, he doesn't seem to have an extensive record on hair transplantation, and most of his history is restricted to his social media. While it would be ideal to have all of my work done with him at once, I'd like to get some second opinions. My main goal (aside from repairing my brows) is to have the gap in the center of my hairline filled in. He has explained that he can achieve this with an FUT transplant of around 100 grafts. While he stated he cannot guarantee 100% density restoration, he feels confident that I should see significant improvement. I'll attach some screenshots below of what the damage of my hairline currently looks like. It contains side-by-side photos of incandescent, florescent, and direct sunlight hitting my hair as a means to display what it looks like in different settings. That said, I'm debating whether or not it's worth it to cut this part of the procedure out with him, and go find a more professional/world-class hair transplantation surgeon. Or, since it's a small procedure (<100 grafts) to give him credence and proceed with having everything done with him all at once. I'm a fairly low-income student, so getting this done is pretty taxing for me and my family -- so there's also the financial aspect to consider as well if you guys think I should delay this until I can find someone else. Thank you all, and I look forward to hearing from you guys soon. Briz
