You got it Chris.
People base their opinions on their own experiences, this is important to remember when researching. Guys who've had bad work in the past (especially the 90s) will mostly likely have a different opinion than someone who recently went to a world class Doctor with a virgin scalp.
I am not saying you should take it for granted that you would get a good FUT scar from a good Doc. Because some people do heal better than others and some have scalps which are prone to stretching scars.
But with a good Doc I would say your chances are a million times better now than in the 90s. Just remember to take it easy for six months post op. No crunches, sit ups or dead lifting twice your body weight.
