Recipient FUE Scarring
If I understand your question correctly, you wish to use FUE to remove unwanted transplanted hair in your hairline. This process can cause small hypo pigmented scars in the area of extraction. Before undergoing this procedure, ask the surgeon the size of the punch to be used to perform the extraction. A 0.80 mm punch will cause minimal scarring, larger punches will increase the chances of noticeable scarring in this exposed area. Hope this helps!
If you are taking transplanted hairs out from your hair line, you may have scarring. It is a risk no matter what size insturmen
FUE Scars in the hairline.
FUE scars are left in the donor where the hair is taken, not in the recipient area, where the hair is placed. The tools used to make the recipient sites are very tiny. There should be no evidence or scars where you get your new hair.

How detectable are FUE scars?
The critical factor in the detection of FUE scars is the size of the punch used! Employing punches that are .9mm or smaller yields scars that heal expediently and imperceptibly. That is the wounds usually healed within 4-5 days and are not visible to the naked eye!!
