Can A Head That Has Been Operated On And Sewn Grow Hair Again?
Hello, I want to ask you this. 10 years ago, my head was used for surgery and sewing. And until now there are still stitch marks and no hair growing anymore. Can my hair still grow or not. Thanks
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. For both men and women, hair is a crown on which the beauty of one's appearance can lie. It is a natural thing for everyone to want to have thick and good hair, so there are various ways to deal with baldness and hair loss.
There are many causes of baldness, such as hormones, skin disorders, drug side effects, chemotherapy side effects, nutritional deficiencies, and certain infections. Among the causes of baldness in certain areas are stitch marks or scars. This is because for hair to grow, there must be follicles or hair follicles in the area which are of course well-nourished. On skin that is injured and sutured, if it is severe enough, the scar tissue or skin that forms afterward does not have that pouch. So that even if you wait or give hair growth medicine, the hair will still not grow because there are no roots.
However, an option that can be made to cover this section with hair is to use a hair transplant or other surgical procedure. Our advice, consult your problem with a dermatologist to see first hand about the scars and stitches that you mean. By seeing it in person, your doctor may be able to suggest other treatments for your problem. So, hopefully it answers your question.
