I had a hair transplant four years ago of roughly 3000 grafts - 1500 grafts for each temple. The growth was poor, and I'm now left with scaring in both temples that mostly visible under certain lighting conditions (overhead lighting, fluorescent light etc.). Can you recommend the best type of laser to treat this type of scaring?

Scar Removal After Hair Transplant
There are laser treatment options for scarring, such as the Fraxel Dual or Fraxel Repair lasers. However, I specialize in hair transplant repair cases like yours, wherein the results yielded little to no growth and scarring is a problem. Using FUE uGraft, I have restored many botched hair transplant patients. If you would be interested in a consultation, please contact my office. Best of luck.

Fleming-Mayer Flap to treat baldness and remove scars from transplants can "kill 2 birds with 1 stone". This would need to be done as we have for more than 35 years with a tissue expander placement IF your donor sites are not overly scarred.
