Traction Alopecia - 2500 grafts done with Dr. Sethi & Dr. Bansal, DHT (modified FUE), 6 months

Recommended Posts

Mr. Gary used to wear a turban since his childhood till the age of 30. As expected, he developed traction alopecia on the frontal scalp as well as the side locks and the temple points. He wanted to remove the turban and have a natural hairline. He had a bigger size of head and the surface area to be covered was surprisingly larger. In this type of turban induced traction alopecia cases, the difficult area is to do the temple and side locks going up to above the ear. Since these cases are not graded baldness cases, there is a sharp border of high density on the front. So, during transplantation if the transplanted hair does not attain matching density, then the result will not be considered great. So, providing an optimum density in the transplanted area is very important. In this case, we planted 2500 grafts, all extracted from the scalp and the results presented here are after 1 year.

Those folds on his scalp, are they also due to constantly wearing a turban?

Splendid result.

Yes. They are due to the constant wearing of the turban for many years. He was also overweight which augmented to the pressure.

There is not reason to believe that the scalp folds are from weight or the turban. Tons of people wear turbans that do not have this. 

 

The folds are from a condition called cutis verticis grata.

 

Nice case tho.

I think the folds are not enough in the dimensions of sulci and gyri to be called as CVG (Cutis Verticis Gyrata). 

(Attached are few pics of CVG. It can be more read in PUBMED.)

You are right all who wear turbans don’t develop this necessarily. 

In this case, there were no internal cranial complains or problems. So was not traced deep. It has also improved. 

I will try to capture the pic when he returns back. (Though it will be difficult to do that with long hair!)

Thank you for appreciating the case.
