Do hair transplants cause scars?
Men regularly ask us: "do hair transplants leaves scars?"
With the FUE method, scars are virtually impossible to see, but can appear as extremely miniscule pinpricks, and they are very easily concealed by your hair as it grows in. This means that the more modern FUE hair transplant method is visually superior to the old “strip” (FUT) method, but technically, they could still leave a series of extremely tiny round scars.
Many surgeons who are desperate for business will unethically say that a hair transplant cannot possibly leave behind a scar at all. Do not trust these surgeons. No matter what method a surgeon uses, it is technically false to say that scars are impossible.
Any cosmetic surgery that involves penetration of the skin can sometimes leave a miniscule amount of minor scarring behind. Although, as mentioned, in the case of FUE hair transplants, those theoretical scars are the size of tiny pinpricks, and you will enjoy the benefit of covering and concealing them with your hair, making them virtually impossible to see.
