Hello!!

I just want to get your opinion about my hairs. As you can see, I have very very short/ "straight" hair.
I had hairloss since i'm 17-18yrs old and i'm 22 now. As you can see on the photos, i'm diffuse on the top and i have very dense Side and Back.

I had a little (850 grafts) HT last year, yes i know i was too young... , to get more density on the top. I'm on a solid regimen and praying each night to keep my hair!!

My problem is that we can see my scar when i have short hair and i put my head ahead looking at ground.
I regret that i didn't do FUE of instead normal graft... Do you think that placing FUE in my scar could reduce its visibility?
Thx!

Any comment will be welcome

wickedguy,

I am trying to be as thoughtful as possible, but you call that hair loss. I wish I had your hair... I would recommend just staying on your regimen.

Well... i think the picture (maybe the flash) show more density. Don't forget that i'm "only" 22years old. I have photo here when I was 18 and i had twice more hair on the front/top.

I had my surgery in a local clinic in Canada. It's not a "famous" surgeon.
The problem isn't the surgery, cuz my scar width is 3-4mm, it's probably my hairs shape...

In my opinion you look normal and you don't need a HT. Btw, I am also 22 but I am alot worse of then that.

excuse the hostility, but.....someone should slap this kid and shoot the Dr. who performed the HT. What's done is done however. Your best bet now is to stay on the meds and keep your existing hair strong and healthy. the jury is still out on the FUEing into the scar, but there is some chatter from certain patients who claim it has worked well for them. your hair characteristics are nice but you are right.....the hairs seem to shoot straight out of your scalp rather than lay flat like most natural hair. NOt necessarily a bad thing but makes concealing hairloss more difficult. good luck.

Hey WickedGuy,
Your overall hair density and hairline look very good. Many posters here would shoot their mother for a head like that. (Okay, maybe father)
Chances are, that no one would notice that scar unless they are well versed in transplantation, which is a very very small percentage of the population. If the scar is a major concern for you, FUE can aid in filling it in. Fresh scars may take some time for grafts to grow, or encounter lower graft survivability, so If you have the patience to wait another year or so, it would probably be in your best interests. But, I think you look fine and shouldn't worry about it for now. Go out and have fun and remain on a solid regimen. Good Luck bud.

Ciao!

Hehehehe

Thanx to all for your comments! I feel a bit better.
I'm gonna wait to see what happen to FUE transplanted in scar in the next 1-2years to be sure.

to salazam : no, it's not alvi armani, HW, DrJ or Dhi.

Your hair looks not bad.
Im sorry, for the huge scar (3-4mm) and only 850 grafts.

The top view picture, show a little bit low density.
The last picture looks fine, but I think this is maybe the flash and daylight -combo, it makes more density.
If you view futzyheads pictures, he work with light, ...but anyway.. he have a good result.
I would make a "FUE test" in the scar,~50grafts, if it grow well, is this a good option.

MiKe_78 : thx for comment. I'm gonna wait few months (maybe years ?? hehe) to see what other people will get from their FUE transplant in scar, and i'll take my decision after that. Since my scar lenght is "only" 15-16cm, 150-200grafts should be enough to hide it

flake : When did you start loosing your hairs? What's your regimen? Nw2-3 ?

Bye!

wickedguy,

Good FIT surgeons can graft your scar with sutisfactory results. It was a mistake to have HT at this age and with the density of your hair. Do not have another HT except to cover the scar.

I will give you this link to see a test of 50 grafts on a wide scar Dr. Cole did in September 2003 in the Cyprus clinic. This patient has a scheduled surgery on Monday 2rd of May to cover more of his scar. The Link is

FUE into scar is a proven entity.
Look at the photos of one patients repair of a much larger scar using FUE. He is about 5 months out from his procedure.

Wow Wow and Wow!!!

Thx to both of you!

I know It was a mistake to have an HT at my age... I regret it now! I don't want to have anyother HT accept for the scar.
I just want to fill this scar and continue my regimen to see what's going to happen!

15cm * 3.5mm = 5.25 square CM. so 150-200 should be right? I think we're talking about a 1500$ job

Thanks alot for your help! very appreciated!

Why don't you post a picture to show clearly the scar.

The cost is what you are sugesting given that this is the area of the scar. The procedure will not take that long.
