Many patients have had one or multiple previous hair transplants with resulting poor scarring in their donor area on the back of the head. When individuals like to wear their hair closely cropped or cut, the scars can be unattractive and very noticeable. Dr. Yates utilizes multiple methods to help correct the appearance of a poor scar. The most successful and least invasive is utilizing the FUE technique to transplant hair into the scar area. He has experienced successful graft survival and given patients dramatic results to improve their appearance.

Occasionally, he will recommend scalp tattooing or permanent pigmentation in combination with FUE to further conceal the appearance of a scar. PRP also could be of benefit.
