Shaved Hair for Scalp Scar Camouflage

I met a patient who had a hair transplant several years ago.  He was in my office to check out his options for revising his scalp scar, but I had a hard time finding the scar when I parted his hair on the back of his head. He explained that he had come up with a method to hide the scar on a day to day basis.

I thought his way of camouflaging the scar was genius. I thought I should share his novel method and the photos with our blog followers.  I am sure there are many people who can take advantage of this smart solution before they opt to do a scar revision procedure.

As you can see in the image, he has used hair clippings from his shaver to cover the scar.  He applies a thin layer of honey to make the scar surface sticky so that when he applies the beard clippings, they stick to the scar surface. This produces the appearance of hair on the scar, making the scar almost invisible.

This is similar to using microfibers such as Toppik and other similar brands but with use of your own hair.
