Hair Transplant Questions & Answers
 
Subject: Repairing scars from old transplant surgery
 
Question: I would like to like to know what options (if any) are available for repairing and diminishing hair transplant scars.

I have three types. On the crown, I have 100 plugs that did not "take" therefore leaving white circular scars, I call them "white caps". In the middle of the scalp, I have 100 "punch" holes, I called them "craters". And in the front, there is 100 raised plugs, "cobblestones".
I can not wear a hair piece so I must always wear a ball cap.
 
Answer: The cobblestone pattern may be improved with an Erbium or CO2 laser. I have nothing that would improve the other scars. Sounds like you had the worst case scenario-large hair grafts transferred with too much (any) scalp skin.
