Does anyone have any pictures of this? I think with scarless hair restoration around the corner (fingers crossed) smp into a depleted donor could be big...or just into a regular fue scar

SMP is really a game-changer in itself. I'm very happy to see big clinics like hasson and wong starting to use it

SMP has been around for 3 or 4 years now.....
I have not seen results with my own eyes, but from seeing full scalps getting tattooed and FUT and FUE scars getting filled in.......you can see that it is a very good option to use for filling in sparse areas to make them look denser and also for filling in and covering up scars.
I am not too sure personally that SMP is a good option to cover large areas of bare scalp.......ie. a NW6 getting SMP all over his head......it just doesn't have that 3D affect, I personally would feel weird having hair painted all over my head, but I would be fine with SMP for filling in a thin crown or filling in scarring as it blends in well with the existing hair + the crown area is not as focused on by others.
I keep saying this, but I would like to think surgeons would go a step further than usual in taking an extra 500, 1000, maybe more grafts that they would usually be willing to, if the patient was willing to have SMP to refill the depleted area.

It's not supposed to have a 3D effect.. a shaven head is not a 3D effect.. its supposed to just replicate the shadow of a shaven head..
