Eyebrow, eyelash, beard and scalp hair loss can all have a negative impact on a burn survivor’s self-esteem. Treating patients with burn alopecia or hair loss can often be a challenge to both the surgeon and the patient. As with other reconstructive procedures that are required in the post-burn phase, this is usually a multiple stage process often requiring surgery over several years. This is because graft take is not as reliable as in healthy non-scarred skin and may need repeating to achieve adequate density. Also, different areas of hair loss may need to be addressed in separate procedures. There are several limiting factors that will determine whether or not a patient is a candidate for hair restoration which includes but is not limited to the amount of hair loss and the availability of suitable donor hair. Follicular unit extraction (FUE) or strip follicular unit transplant (FUT) is the treatment of choice for burn alopecia.
