Hello Dr. Rassman,
I have read in a few your blog responses about a procedure called Tissue Expansion involving the insertion and inflation of a balloon into the scalp to create new tissue allowing for a effective scar reduction. Are you familiar w/ patients w/ HT scars that have used TE and if so have they been successful?
I’m interested in learning more about this procedure and it’s viability. I live in LA – would it be possible for you to refer a Dr. who perfroms TE?
Thank you for your insight.
I would be happy to see you myself, where I would first assess your scarring problem. One must command the problem before recommending a proper treatment. I have been involved with tissue expansion for the past few years, but it is not the solution for everyone. If I can not manage the process, my ego would not get in the way; I would then refer you to an appopriate expert, that is, if you needed another opinion. First, let’s start with a visit to my Los Angeles office. Please call 800-NEW-HAIR to setup a free consultation.
