    I am 30 years old, had a FUT back in 2012 when I was 25 and thought the sky was falling when my hairline started to recede and impulsively had the surgery, leaving me with a fairly large scar 1-2cm thick and 16cm around my head. As the picture shows, I can't wear my hair shorter than a #5 to cover the scar (the surgeon said I could get away with a #2 no problem, typical sales pitch praying on my insecurities). I have had SMP put into the scar to try and help the contrast, but that is by no means a permanent or progressive solution. So, my question is whether or not I can FUE terminal or pubic hair from my beard, armpit, groin or other area into the scar, as I don't need to to look perfect but just need it to fill in the scar at a short hair length. Unfortunately I don't have any chest or back hair which is probably ideal for the size and consistency. Also, I'm in Toronto and have seen Rahal for a consult but he doesn't do body hair transplants. If anyone has any thoughts/experience/suggestions I would greatly appreciate it, thanks in advance fellas
    Look into getting trichophytic procedure prior to any other surgeries. The procedure will decrease the size of the scar. Then decide the next step.
