Patient story 17
Norwood Scale: N/A, Diagnosis: Linear Scleroderma
Surgery: Follicular Unit Excision (FUE)
Number of Grafts: 817
This patient has a diagnosis called linear scleroderma, leaving him with a deep scar without hair in his scalp and forehead. When he reached his late 30s he considered the option of undergoing a hair transplant to the area to conceal his scar and restore hair where he had none.
Treating Linear Scleroderma with hair transplant surgery is a complicated procedure. It is nuanced by the lack of fat tissue under the skin potentially affecting the survival of transplanted follicles. Our experienced Surgeons chose to extract 817 grafts, with careful attention to their size and implanted them into the deep scar. Creating a meticulous plan for surgery was key to increasing the chances of a successful result.
