It is always easier when it is not your own head, but it looks ok.

Especially considering it is a 12 yr old scar - it actually is a very fine scar - I am sure a ton of people with scars from that time would switch with you in a heartbeat. Guess if you cut it with a grade 3 clipper on the sides and 1.5 on top, it would look great... have you tried it?

FUE in the scar is expensive - but could probably improve it further, but not sure it is worth the hassle and the money.

Your head looks great for the short haircut. Keep smiling...

I use to do a 2 guard all over and the scar didn't show through
I am off work for a week so I decided to try the 1.5
Now it's a matter if I can live the way it is or let it grow back to the 2
Im not sure a 1.5 on top and 2 on the sides would look good
Barber says sides need to eb shorter than the top , but I can ask

And yea I had oen fellow who shaved his head e-mail me a pic of his scar
It goes from ear to ear and is probbaly 1 / 4 wide all the way round

Thanks for the comments

Not too bad, mate. Go shorter even, if you feel like it.

hey DAVE52, how many HT did you have? where is your recipient area, where the grafts were transplanted? have you considered another HT, FUE?

One = 12 yrs ago
Front 1/3 to 1/2
No = no more
If I had the balls i should have buzzed io all off 12 years ago ( but alas I didn't have the balls to even try )
I now realize I will never get a full head hair as dense as I may want it to be
And as a result I have no desire to go back and have someone carve me up again

The scar doesn't look bad to me. You could do another FUE instead. I'm on the same boat as you. I'm considering another one, but this time FUE.

Dave, from your previous posts, I thought your scar would be a lot worse than it really is. Your scar really isn't that bad at all and the only reason that I notice it is because I know what I'm looking for. If I saw your head 2 years (prior to educating myself on hair loss), I wouldn't have had a clue that you had a hair transplant.
