Several procedures may be used to lessen or reduce the size of the scar created through the FUT procedure. Their success isn’t always guaranteed, and some scarring is almost certain to remain.
Keep in mind that as you age, your scalp will start to naturally sag. This can make the scalp reduction scar wider or more visible.
Another option might be to graft hair follicles into the FUT scar using the FUE method. The effectiveness of this solution will be determined, in part, by the thickness of the scar.
Scar tissue can be thinned using medication, making this more viable in some cases.
Scarred skin does not, however, always hold onto the grafts as well as healthy skin. Your doctor will be able to tell you if this procedure might work for you.
