Should a dent on your head be corrected by a hair transplant or a fat injection?

Did you know that a dent on the head in some cases can be corrected by a hair transplant? The following case studies will be a small piece of knowledge for people who have scars or dents on their head and want to get a hair transplant at Hairsmith clinic to hide them. Let’s find out now that in summary, should you get a hair transplant or not to cover the dents or scars?  If not, what should you do next? And if the problem area must be transplanted, what are the things you should know and what are the limitations?

What I’m going to tell you from the following case studies is that not everything can be corrected with hair transplantation alone. If there shouldn’t be any hair in the area,  the patient may have to opt for other treatment options, such as fat injection on dents or scars etc. Or if the scar is on the area where there should be hair, you can get a hair transplant on that area at Hairsmith Clinic. However, if the scar is on the forehead, implanting the hair there, the result may seem strange. So you should look for alternatives to fix this scar problem instead.

I’ve experienced an incident where a patient has had an accident on the head and has come to consult with me if the scar could be corrected by a hair transplant. However, after having carefully examined and concluded that the dented area was not the area where there should be hair but it just happened to be near the hairline. So I decided to recommend the patient to get fat injections on the dented area to make it disappear instead. The result turned out to be good and very satisfying and the patient did not have to get a hair transplant after that. After knowing this story, don’t be mistaken that we offer liposuction or fat injection services. Hairsmith Clinic is a clinic that specializes in hair only. On that day, I introduced the patient to another reliable liposuction clinic to perform liposuction and inject the fat back into the dented area.

In the case that the doctor can perform a hair transplant on the scar or the dented area, you need to understand that the blood flow around the scar may not be as good as other areas of the skin and the appearance of that part of the skin is not like the other parts as well. Therefore the density of the transplanted hair on the scar area will be less than usual and there may be a higher chance that the transplanted hair will not grow as well as they do on the normal skin area.
