This man is going bald for the first time after a successful breast reduction
Posted October 19, 2018 17:29:08 A Sydney man has been left with a bald spot on his scalp after undergoing a successful scalp treatment for breast reduction.
Nicky Taylor, who is 30, had to be left on his own for two months after doctors at Sydney’s Western Sydney Hospital said he needed the procedure to relieve swelling and inflammation.
After his initial surgery, he received a hair transplant from a friend in Australia, and his first scalp treatment after shaving his head resulted in the same results.
“I had the scalp removed on my neck and it was really sore but I was able to do the treatment on my head, and I did get a good result,” he told ABC News.
“It didn’t hurt at all, and when I came back, it felt a little better, so I went home and did the treatment.”
The first scalp removal Dr Taylor said the treatment had worked well for him, but he didn’t expect it to be the last scalp surgery he underwent.
“There is no cure for baldness,” he said.
He said the hair loss was a major factor in the hair transplant, as he had tried to get it trimmed but it was too painful. “
For me, there’s been no real medical reason why I’ve had this problem, but I’ve been able to keep the scalp hair that I had for a few years, and now it’s really been on hold for two and a half months.”
He said the hair loss was a major factor in the hair transplant, as he had tried to get it trimmed but it was too painful.
“The scalp hair is the hardest part to get rid of, so it’s kind of hard to get your hair off, especially when you have such a large bald spot,” he added.
“A lot of people will get hair transplants, but they don’t really get bald on the scalp, and it’s not that common, so the scalp is really a major pain in the arse.”
The hair transplant is being funded by the Western Sydney Institute of Medical Research.
“He’s got to get off his own and it takes a lot of time to get through the whole process,” Dr Taylor told ABC news.
“You can’t get that done on your own, so we’re trying to get him on board with the scalp transplant as soon as possible.”
Dr Taylor’s success story has been shared on Facebook and Twitter, with the hashtag #beardcut.
The surgery took place at Sydney Hospital on Wednesday, October 13.
After two months, Nicky said he was feeling better and decided to do it again.
“When I came home, I thought ‘OK, I can go back and do it over and over again’,” he said, adding he felt more confident about his own hair.
“My hair is not the best, but it’s still growing and growing and I’m really happy with my scalp.”
A follow-up scalp transplant surgery was planned for a week after his second scalp removal, but Dr Taylor was told by the hospital that the swelling was too large to keep him from doing the procedure.
He said he decided to go back to his friend to try and get a second scalp.
“After the first one, I got the scalp from my friend, and he told me the first two, but the second one didn’t do the job as well, so now I’m trying to do a second one,” he explained.
Nicky, who now lives in Brisbane, said he had a lot to live up to in life after losing his hair. “
Hopefully I can do the second scalp, then I’ll see how that goes.”
Nicky, who now lives in Brisbane, said he had a lot to live up to in life after losing his hair.
He’s also looking forward to starting a new job.
“All I can hope for is to be able to get the job that I want,” he admitted.
“To be able make more money, and have a good life.” ABC/wires
