Scar and HT

Hi!..I'm new to the forum so I'm not sure if I'm posting in the right place.
I had a temporal lift a few years ago and the scars at my temples have widened. I am self conscious about wearing my hair back. I've tried make up but that only works for a short time. I was wondering if a hair transplant would work over a scar?
Has anyone had this done?

It sounds to me that fue may be your best option to fill in the scars.Have you got any pictures you can post so we can see exactly what it looks like.

Thank you for the responses. I tried uploading a photo but I don't think I did it correctly. I'll try again later.

If the scars are on or behind the hairline then FUE could defo help camoflauge the scars. Pics would help:::C

Like I said , I'm new at this. It looks like my response wasn't sent along with my photo,:-(
What would be the best procedure for me and does anyone know what the cost would be for a procedure like this (approximately?)

Thanks in advance.

Yes, both sides are the same and I'm from the MA/NH area. I will contact the Dr. who did the temporal lift and see if he knows anyone in the area.

Thanks for the reply.

I did a little research on the Dr's Names and found them to be in the NY Area. I was hoping to find a Dr. closer to the Boston Area or Southern NH area.

Not sure what the distance is for you but if not too far its well worth travelling there to get the opinions of these docs.

It's at least a 5 hour drive :-(. I need someone no more than one hour away, but thank you!

This should be a straight forward fix for a competent doctor, fue some nice fine hairs into those scars.
