The patient had suffered severe burn injuries to the back and side of her scalp and face.
In between her ongoing repair at our clinic, she had gone to a plastic surgeon, who, while not being adept at hair transplant surgery, had gone ahead and performed one on the patient.
The plastic surgeon had taken a strip from the top of the head – the swirl area. He then transplanted the grafts too far ahead on the side of the face.
The improvement that the patient had been able to appreciate in her previous procedure with our clinic was negated to a large extent the patient’s situation before any surgery and after the 800 grafts at our clinic.
