    Dr. Lindsey 150 FUE z-plasty repair (case 1) McLean VA
    This 16 year old son of a local doctor and his 18 year old brother (case 2 to be presented in a few weeks) both had lesions excised from their scalps by a local dermatologist. This evidently left a fairly large bald spot. A local plastic surgeon then did a z-plasty to narrow, but lengthen, the bald area. Both young men ended up with a small hypertrophic scar with no hair growing in it. After discussion with the parents about simply camouflaging this area with surrounding hair, both chose to proceed with a small FUE case.

    Today we did roughly 90 doubles, and 60 single FUEs using a Feller 0.9mm punch uneventfully. Weíll see him back for postop pics next week when his brotherís case occurs. I expect to be able to post periodic updates this year.

    Although FUE is variable, and putting hair in a fairly hard scar is variable, given how theyíve scarred in the past, I did not offer strip as a harvest technique.

    So here is a 10 day update.

    Mom is somewhat nervous about cleaning so its crusty...They are off to the beach this week and that should take care of the scabs. The donor site is well healed as expected.

    We'll see them in a few weeks and then at Christmas break from school. Given that we put FUEs in scar...it will likely take a while for growth to occur.
