Stretched FUT scar. Looking for advice on what to do next

Does FUE into scar work well? I read conflicting reports that grafts dont always grow out of the scar due to poor blood suply. Or is SMP the better way?
Yeah this is my concern too. I’ve seen successful results online - for example Joe Tillman’s seems to have filled in quite ok - but I’ve heard the same thing.

I think FUE’ing into my scar would be my first option if it would work, obviously because the scar would be covered in hair and not masked such as with SMP, but the idea of shaving my head bald, having a surgery, and only covering the scar sort of seems not worth it.

May as well add some density to the top while we’re at it.

My consult with Dr. Boden should be in six weeks or so, so we’ll see what he says. I’m not opposed to SMP at all if need be, or even another FUT if we could revise the scar in the process, I’m just not sure which option would give me the best chance at success.

I have had FUE into scars which grew successfully.
