This is a phrase I hear often these days: "I have a scar in my donor area"
Before we look at what to do, let's discuss why scars are left in the donor area:
As you know, the hair transplant procedure is usually performed by taking the hair follicles from the donor area and placing them in areas that are less frequent or completely bald. The donor area is usually taken from the scalp at the back of the neck to provide hair follicles.
The degree of formation of scars may vary from person to person. Some people heal with minimal scars, while others may have more obvious scars. To reduce scar formation, it is important to choose an experienced doctor who will perform the surgical procedure. It is also important to follow the doctor's recommended guidelines during the healing process and to provide appropriate care to promote wound healing.
It is rare for scars to remain in the donor area after hair transplantation, but sometimes it can occur.

The permanent disappearance or reduction of scars may vary depending on the size of the scar, your skin type and the treatment applied. It is important to consult with a dermatologist for best results.
