Patient “Kingsley” had more than a dozen invasive procedures (scalp reductions, flaps, strip removals, punch procedures) over the years in an effort to combat his thinning hair.
As a result his scalp was left a lumpy, scarred mess. The scars were very noticeable due to his lack of hair coverage, and the scars themselves created dead zones where hair would not grow in.
Job one for Dr. Woods was to create a normal, healthy look for the patient, covering up the unsightly scars. This was accomplished by transferring donor follicles from areas of the body other than the head – the abdomen, arms, chest, and neck.
In the after image we can see that the patient’s scars are completely covered, leaving him looking much healthier.
