I am an Asian male and interested in getting a hair transplant. I have been debating between FUE and FUT and was just wondering if Asians have an increased risk of scarring with FUE.

No, to my knowledge there is no additional risk in Asians regarding scarring and Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) hair transplantation procedures.

There are some doctors who feel that the Asian population does tend to have a slightly increased risk of widened scar formation with any type of surgical procedure but not necessarily with FUE.
