Transplanting into scar

It would be great if you could post a before photo that better depicts the recipient area/ scarring.  A second procedure may likely be necessary to increase the density.  In your case, I would give it the full 12 months to see if there is more robust growth before embarking into a second procedure.

It is best to first follow up with your doctor.  If you want another procedure to add density then that would be a reasonable request.

Hair transplant into burn scar with poor growth

You had a hair transplant into burn scar with poor growth. I would have to examine you to understand the skin that the transplant was put into. Was this a split or full thickness graft? You need to see an expert for more information so get a second opinion if your doctor does not give you a straight answer.

Transplanting into scar tissue

At 10 months you may get a bit more growth, perhaps maybe 10-15% more.  Although the success of transplanted growth in scar tissue is typically lower, it appears you have good growth.  If you'd like to increase the density, you can consider a second procedure.  Most patients wait until 1 year post op to make that call.
