Hair Loss: Procedures to Avoid
This is a more radical form of scalp reduction. Dissection or loosening of
the scalp skin is done at a level below the major arteries of the scalp. The
procedure may leave parts of your head permanently numb.
Unlike other scalp reductions, this is major surgery, which requires
hospitalization and general anesthesia. It leaves visible scars around the
ears, and additional hair loss is often a result.
