I am of Indian ethnicity and currently reside in the US. I’m considering a hair transplant, however, I’m concerned about hyperpigmentation that could occur as a result of placing grafts to the recipient sight. I am not dark for an Indian and I have a brown/olive complexion and in the past doctors have warned me about not having surgery to remove acne scars because of the risk of hyperpigmentation.
Since your practice is based in India, I’m assuming that you have operated on many Indian men who are probably the same skin tone as I am. Have you ever seen cases of hyperpigmentation in the recipient site as a result of placing the puncture wounds in which to insert the grafts? Is this a real risk for me since I have a brown skin tone?
