Hair Transplant for Congenital Temporal Triangular Alopecia
We just had a hair transplant surgery for a child with Congenital Temporal Triangular Alopecia (CTTA) yesterday. He had a patch of baldness since birth and it started to bother him at school recently to the degree that he could not even wait until winter break – the time his parents originally planned to get it restored. The procedure went well and we densely packed 470 follicular unit grafts onto the bald patch of his temple area. He is happy and looking forward to the final growth of the grafts in a few months.
Congenital Temporal Alopecia is a patchy hair loss condition which is generally present at birth in form of a patch of hair loss on the child’s temple. The balding patch may consist of very fine hair. This non-scarring alopecia has been reported to respond well to hair transplant surgery.
