let’s assume that the burn is in the front and top of the head. A balloon is then placed in the crown to expanded in the scalp over a couple of months. Each week, about two times, fluid is injected into a ‘port’ on the balloon. With each injection, the balloon expands until it is stretched enough with enough redundancy to cover the burned areas. Then the burned scar is removed and the new scalp is advanced forward. I have been involved in a number of these challenging cases and the results are very rewarding. I have seen fully half of the scalp burned and treated successfully this way, sometimes with added hair transplants for fine tuning the process.
