In hair transplantation procedures, the area where the hair follicles are taken is called the donor area. Even with the use of modern methods of hair transplantation, hair transplantation inevitably leaves a scar in the donor area. However, after most operations, you can get results such as scars and a long recovery time. In the process of hair transplantation, individual hair follicles are taken from the donor area at the back of the head and on the sides of the head. As a result, small scars with a diameter of less than a millimeter are formed in the donor area where each hair follicle was removed. In addition, some hair rarity can be seen in the hair follicles.
How many scars are left in the donor area after hair transplantation?
Hair transplant surgery involves removing each hair follicle and moving it to the area of baldness. The skin in the donor area, where the hair follicles come from, usually heals within 2-3 weeks. However, small scars of 0.7-0.9 mm in size appear at the place where the hair follicles are taken.
Is hair transplantation possible without leaving traces in the donor area?
During the hair transplant procedure, it is impossible not to leave scars. Because in this process, each hair follicle is removed separately. Therefore, scarring is inevitable. However, an experienced surgeon will be able to hide these scars as much as possible.
How to hide the scars formed in the donor area?
It is very important not to take too many hair follicles from the back of the head, which is the donor area, during the hair transplantation process in terms of hiding the resulting scars.
If you leave a lot of hair on the back of your head, the remaining hair will grow and cover the scars. Approximately 1 week after the hair transplant operation, the hair can reach a length that can cover the scars in the donor area. During this period, it becomes very difficult for you to see the traces in the form of small dots. As the healing process continues, there are fewer and fewer scars.
Choosing the right surgeon for hair transplantation is very important in terms of healing scars in the donor area in a shorter time. In addition, the correct techniques should be applied so as not to create a hair rarity between the gaps remaining in this area as a result of the procedure.
