Dear forum readers,
The following case illustrates the benefits of scalp laxity in FUHT procedures.
While on the topic, you may like to see what exceptional scalp donor area laxity means. Dr. Ruby has posted a video at the thread
However, everyone is not blessed with such extraordinary laxity as shown in the video above.
Scalp stretching exercises, nonetheless, make a big and important difference.
The patient we are going to discuss on this thread has promised regular update oppurtunities.
Nickname - TN.
Hairloss status - Norwood 5 if left untransplanted.
Past history - The patient had plug transplants earlier.
The plug grafts were extracted individually, leading to shotgun scarring in the donor area.
The entire scalp donor area was depleted on account of this scarring.
TN was advised to perform scalp donor area stretching exercises regularly before attempting a FUHT.
The aim was twofold. To increase the available grafts as well as to excise as much of the scarring.
We also performed a small session of transplant of the beard hair to the scalp.
