I recently posted this picture on the "Hair Restoration Network" website contributing to a forum thread regarding scarring in the donor area. I also thought I would share it on my personal website.
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.
