In brief: Should not be

Modern hair transplant procedures involve "folliicular unit" grafting.
The hair is replaced just as is grows naturally in the scalp, in groups of 1-4 hair follicles. Seek an experienced hair transplant surgeon for best results.

In brief: No in most cases

Hair replacement is now on a cutting edge.
The results now no longer have that "corn row" effect. Seek hair replacement experts to discuss the appearance you can achieve.

In brief: Hair transplant scar

It depends on the technique used to harvest and implant the hair grafts.
Strips or plugs are easily visible and crew cuts should be avoided. Current methods of fue are improving both the donor and recipient sites but it may take at least 6 months to assess the outcome of the procedure and early manipulation of the grafts should be avoided. Medications oral and topical may be presribed. Avoid sun.

In brief: No

Hair transplantation today is done one hair follicle at a time to give a natural look.
No one will know you had a hair transplant.
