Scalp Necrosis refers to the death of tissue due to the insufficient blood supply to an area of tissue. It’s the worst complication after getting a hair transplant. It can result in skin ulcer and scarring. Scalp Necrosis isn’t very common but it can be caused by many factors. If you want a safe treatment so that you won’t have to suffer Necrosis then get treatment from the well-reputed hair transplant clinics which offer FUE hair transplant in Dubai.

Following are the causes which can cause scalp Necrosis.

Causes of Scalp Necrosis:

Pre-existing conditions in the patient such as:

  • Smoking is the main reason for scalp Necrosis.
  • diabetes
  • photo-damage (modifies the collagen and vasculature)
  • long-lasting baldness

Poor surgical techniques:

  • a large area of the recipient site
  • recipient sites that are placed too closely
  • a lot of hair follicles implanted at one time
  • excessive use of epinephrine in the procedure

Most probably scalp Necrosis can be caused due to the closure process of donor area during Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), extraction of hair follicles during the Follicular Unit Extraction procedure, and the “overstuffing” of hair follicles in the recipient sites.

If you are suffering from any hair related problems like hair thinning, hair loss or baldness then you should get a safe treatment from clinics which offers hair transplant in Dubai.

In the FUT hair transplant procedure, the donor area from where the strip is extracted for the implantation process is mostly closed tightly, which “locks” the blood vessels and becomes the reason of the donor region suffocation.

In the FUE hair transplant procedure, excessive extraction of the hair follicles can damage superficial blood vessels, and it’s the reason which can affect the blood supply.
