The patient came to us anxious about his options .He had two strip surgeries in the past with very poor growth.
Even though with a camouflage combing, he was unable to hide his problem.
He was afraid to go for another strip surgery (because of a wide scar in his donor; fortunately, it is flat and not hypertrophic)
He was Norwood 6 to 7, with a poor donor area (under 60 fu/cm2 on average) , thin and straight hairs .
He also had dermatitis on his scalp: brown crust on his scalp + erythema (redness of the skin).
We decided to treat him first with LED light + Neobacitracine .
After one month of treatment, the lesions (crusts and erythema) disappeared.
We decided to go for the surgery: broad coverage at low density with the FUE by FIT shaven technique.
Results after one year brought back hope and joy in his life. Little things can lead to huge transformation in someone life.
