Ask the expert Dr Greg Williams answers a patients question about hair transplantation treatment:
'Dear Dr Greg, about 6 years ago I had chemical burns to my scalp I am 67 years old and I am very embarrassed about my condition and would like to know a bit more about treatment, please advise'
"Scalp scars can be suitable for hair transplantation in certain circumstances. There needs to be an adequate donor hair supply at the sides and/or back of your head.The scar needs to be mature and have enough tissue over the skull to make incisions in order to insert the follicular unit grafts.You should have a face to face consultation with a hair transplant surgeon who will advise you on your suitability as well as what is involved with the procedure."
