Causes of Hair Transplant ScarsFollicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) are newer hair transplant methods. These methods generally result in little to no scarring, especially when performed by an experienced surgeon. With FUT, the scar is a single thin line and with FUE, there are several small, white, round scars. Both of these types of scars are easily concealed. Unfortunately, scarring with hair transplant procedures is common and may require surgical repair to correct. Causes of scarring after a hair transplant surgery may include:
- The use of older techniques
- Improper execution of current techniques (FUT and FUE)
- Poor healing by the patient
- Choosing a shorter haircut to reveal scarring that was previously concealed
