I have researched your website and I am curious as to whether or not any of these procedures would work for me. I suffered from 3rd degree burns resulting from being trapped in a burning car after a MVA. My scalp was burned past the follicle in a large area ( mainly the top). I have been undergoing burn treatment for the past few years. My surgeon and have been using tissue expanders to restore my hair. I am concerned that this is a long process and involoves a few surgeries every 6-9 months. So I am looking for options and short-cuts. Any suggestions?
What you said sounds like your doctors know what they are doing and have developed a good, sound strategy. If you would like a second opinion, it would be very difficult to do it over a long distance. Sending photographs of good quality would help and I would be willing to take a look and verify the plan, but it sounds like you are in good hands. Why are you writing to me now? How far have you gone with your present medical team? Are they responsive to your questions and do you have confidence in them? These are basic questions that may speak to your overall comfort and the communications you have with your medical team. When you have the confidence in the team, then you should stay with the winning team. There are no shortcuts to problems of your type. Be sure that when transplants are the refining step, that your transplant surgeon knows how to manage a case like yours, as the transplant surgeon will frequently have different skills than the team of plastic surgeons who are managing your ’tissue expanders’.
