Que: I am 27 years old and had an accident when I was 5 years old, in which I hurt my head. I had to undergo a skull reconstruction surgery and the result of all this was that I have scar tissue on both sides of my head. Now my hair grows really slowly, but in the bald areas, the hair grows really thin and falls off easily. Nothing seems to be working for me and I am now seeking help from you.
Ans: Your case is a little more complicated, because of the scar tissue. You will need to undergo a thorough physical exam and a scalp biopsy as well. These will allow the doctor to assess the reason for lesser hair growth and the hair loss. Before going for a full-fledged hair transplant, it might be wise to undergo a hair transplant with 200 grafts first and decide the further course of action, thereafter.
