Dear Dr. Epstein,
I had a hair transplant when I was 20 and would prefer now to just have a buzz cut. I have a straight scar in the back of my head that is very thin but if I buzz my head it will definitely be visible. My doctor did not take the extra step of stitching or cutting the skin so hair would grow through the scar. Is there anywhere in the Miami area, where I currently live that I can go to get the scar fixed to become hard to see? – Patrick
Yes Patrick there are a variety of techniques that can be used to improve the appearance of your scar. These techniques include removal of the scar with repair using different method of closure, and grafting into the scar.
It would be a pleasure to meet with you in person to see what is the best way to proceed.
