Aim: The purpose of this article is to prove the importance of autologous fat transfer (AFT) in scarring alopecia. Methods: We present a complete clinical report of 21 cases treated with a combined procedure of AFT and hair transplantation (HT) done in the last three years. Results: The main findings of this study are the constant, early and more predictable hair regrowth after the hair transplant done on a pre-treated scarring alopecia. Conclusion: Tissue regeneration through AFT can significantly improve hair growth in the area of scarring alopecia, underlining, once again, the tremendous potential of this approach. Future studies may need to be carried out.
