It depends on how bad your scarring is. best options seem to be SMP or have grafts placed back in the area.
Is your donor depleted or moth-eaten? How do you wear your hair, short or long?
Really need more info and pictures if possible.

The best, and only option as far as I know, is to get SMP done in the donor area. Nicole offers temporary SMP that is effective for my donor region (as well as on my FUT scars) at Shapiro Medical in Minneapolis.

I was thinking Smp would be the best approach. Wylie, have you any pictures showing your Smp?

Depending on how bad your scarring is or how depleted will determine what can be done. SMP is a good viable option. Get in touch with SMG and Vinci clinic to see if they can help.

Hi there, I don't know why you mention FUE scaring. Because FUE (Follicular unit extration) is one of the hair transplantation method in which hair roots are received from donor area and implanted in to bald area. It is a one day surgery process and also scar-less technique in hair transplant. On the other hand FUT ( Follicular unit transplant) is hair transplant technique that leaves scar behind

He's mentioning fue because he has scarring from fue! there's no such thing as a scarless surgery, and anyone who says there is, is a liar.

Are you suggesting that he is imagining his fue scarring?

I think rather he was attempting a set up for a marketing line. 
For FUE scarring you have a couple of options.

1. SMP. There are two kinds, the permanent and temporary. So far, no one has been able to prove to me that permanent SMP won't turn color to a blue or green after a few years. If someone tells you it is designed to last for a specific number of years, ask them how long they've been doing the procedure. If their length of time doing the procedure is shorter than the ink was designed to last, you then have to question how they know it's going to do what they say it will do.

2. FUE into the scars. This is still an unproven approach as the success depends on several factors.

A. What donor source is being used?
If you're taking scalp hair to fill the scars, you have the highest chance of success. FUE donor scarring that is a problem usually results from having taken too many grafts from an area that is too small. This leaves "patches" in the donor area. In the past the issue arose from this as well as punches being too large but now I'm seeing the problem being from over harvesting more than I do from punch size.


B. What is the expected survival rate of those hairs?
Scalp hair is king. That is what everyone says, and they're right, because it has the highest chance of survival. Behind that, you have beard hair but the problem with beard hair is that it is commonly of a rougher and thicker caliber than other donor sources so it is, many times, not going to match the hair that it is being placed amongst. Sometimes it isn't an issue if all one is looking to do is fill the gaps but once it start to grow longer it can be a nagging issue. I know of one patient that, while getting decent beard growth in his donor, isn't crazy about the texture differences.
Behind beard hair the next best source is typically chest hair and with most clinics that I've spoken to about this you can expect maybe a 50% survival rate at best. From there you've got back hair, leg hair, etc. etc. all offering progressively lower survival rates.

C. What is the consequences of using those hairs? What kind of scarring will be      created from using that donor source?
I've outlined the texture differences with beard hair and this holds true with other donor sources. Some have alternative donor source hairs that do in fact match closely to scalp donor hair, and if they do, then great. It will blend well. But you run the risk of visible scarring in any of these areas especially if it ever gets enough sun exposure to start darkening from melanin production (tanning). Scar tissue is white and doesn't tan. With any donor source, you run the risk of texture differences, scarring and lower survival rates compared to scalp donor hair. Remember, for every solution you have to solve a problem, it usually creates another problem of it's own so be sure to balance the pros and cons of any future procedures you go through.
