Senior Member TC17 Posted May 21, 2009 Senior Member Share Posted May 21, 2009 So I'm wondering, if FUE scarring is so minimal that it is virtually undetectable, why can't a doctor take FUE from a non safe zone and transplant it to lower a hairline or fill in the temples on a young patient? Is there any reason why FUE's cannot be taken from the top of the scalp? I know that those hairs will not be resistant to DHT and will fall out in time, but some younger patients may only want to look like their peers and not commit to a lifetime of hair restoration. Can't a surgery like that buy the patient some time to decide whether he truly wants to undertake the lifelong process of maintaining his hair without limiting his decision to shave his head in the future? If he ever decides to undergo full strip or FUE from the safe zone, none of his limited supply has been touched and with his increased age it should be easier for a doctor to assess his future pattern. *of course this all assumes that the scarring is virtually undetectable, but even if it is moderately visible, very small scars on the top of the head shouldn't be that noticeable* Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
