Scalp Reduction Surgery

If you are struggling with hair loss, scalp reduction surgery is a hair loss option offered by our best in class hair loss specialists at Delray Beach Hair Transplant Center. Scalp reduction, a surgical procedure, can reverse the results of hair loss by restoring  your hair-bearing scalp to create a fuller head of natural hair. Depending on the nature and amount of hair loss you are experiencing, follicular unit hair grafting (FUT) or Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplants may be utilized in conjunction with this method to improve the appearance of your hairline and overall hair growth pattern.  Surgical hair restoration delivers a proven hair loss remedy that can bring back your hair with remarkably natural results quickly.

“The doctors here are incredible. My hairline is so natural no one can believe I had anything done. The doctor is very professional and takes great pride in his work. There is no high pressure tactics and your consultation with Dr. Mascaró will give you a thorough understanding of the procedure. I highly recommend this place – they are very honest and sincere and are definitely the leaders in hair transplant surgery in South Florida”. ~ YELP

When is Scalp Reduction Surgery Recommended?
For a normal hair transplant procedure, such as a Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) or Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), a scalp reduction is not required.

A Scalp Reduction Treatment Is Needed For Hair Restoration in the Following Scenarios:

  1. Cicatricial Alopecia: immune diseases, previous traumas, burns or botched surgery
  2. When there is a deficiency of donor hairs to harvest

What Exactly is Scalp Reduction Surgery?

Scalp reduction is a procedure preformed on-site at Delray Beach Hair Transplant Center where the plastic surgeon surgically removes parts of the scalp which is affected by alopecia (the partial or complete absence of hair from areas of the body where it normally grows, aka “baldness”) the purpose being to reduce the overall area of baldness. The healthier parts of the scalp are then stretched and re-positioned, making the balding area smaller and more manageable. Scalp reduction surgery can be performed in isolation but frequently used as a hair loss solution in conjunction with a hair transplant procedure.

A small scalp reduction can be performed under local anesthesia,  a strip of skin ranging from two to five centimeters can be removed in one session, with the remaining skin stitched together.

Larger scalp reduction surgery, such in cases of severe burns or traumas are performed strictly under general anesthesia. In these cases the hair transplant (either FUE or FUT)  is performed in a second stage.
