Good day Dr Rassman,
I wonder if i would be an ideal candidate for your new FUE harvesting technique!
I have been in contact with you before. I am a 44yr old male with a small (1 inch) bald spot on my right side in front of the ear. i have never seen anyone else with this particular condition, i wonder if you have. i can resend pictures as no doubt you are unlikely to have the ones i sent to you some years ago. Hair miniaturised in this area probably at the start of my balding process (was gone by the time i was 30 i think). Many years of propecia and minoxidil have had no effect whilst they have had some effect on the top of my head.
A consultation with a dermatologist diagnosed triangular alopecia (although that was simply by looking and he may have just have piggy backed onto my suggestion that it was!!). A course of steroids both topical and injections have had no effect.
i wonder if this new technique could be the answer. My only concern is that if this is an immune system rejection of hair in that area, then i assume placing more hair there will be rejected as well but i am no expert just looking for a solution. many thanks
If you have a 1 inch area on one side of your head, a mini-FUE would possibly be ideal.
Before assuring your candidacy for surgery, I’d of course have to see precisely what you’re referring to and I’d want to know for sure what the diagnosis was. I don’t know why you’d think your immune system would reject hair transplanted into an area of your scalp.
