The Walnut Park patient, whose case is detailed below, struggled with razor bumps behind head, which started to merge into a large, cluster-like abrasion. After many years of shameful discomfort enduring the cosmetic effects of this folliculitis, he was persuaded to seek specialized treatment for the AKN hard razor bumps behind his head by his barber. Surgical treatment for AKN bumps is often the only way to permanently remove these cumbersome bumps, which can look similar to acne in its initial stages.

Before his visit to Dr. U’s clinic in Redondo Beach, California, the Walnut Park patient noticed the razor bumps behind head, scalp, and neck amalgamating into a visible concentration. These bumps resembling pimples on the back of the head caused hair loss along the back hairline, creating more visible damage.
While he, fortunately, did not experience other familiar symptoms of acne keloidalis nuchae (like discharge, odor, and itching), he was still embarrassed by the condition. The unappealing appearance of the skin ailment inspired him to seek out a surgical treatment of the AKN razor bumps behind head surgery from Dr. U.

During the initial consultation, Dr. U thoroughly evaluated his Walnut Park patient’s particular case, Dr. Umar takes an individual approach to each case to determine the best course of treatment for a particular manifestation of AKN. Measuring the height and width of the hard bumps on the back of the head and scalp showed that the razor bumps behind the head were at Stage II, where the AKN progressed to the initial stage of flat plaque.
Due to the advanced stage of his AKN bumps, remission with medical treatments like corticosteroid injections or topical antibiotics was not likely for the Walnut Park patient. These non-surgical treatments for AKN bumps typically only prove helpful in the earlier stages of AKN disease.
Surgical treatment of the AKN razor bumps behind the head was needed to correct the condition. Dr. Umar applied his unique bat excision technique to provide satisfaction and long lasting results to get rid of the razor bumps behind the head and scalp.

After enduring this condition for so long, the Walnut park patient was ecstatic with the results of his procedure. Even though he was inundated with a Stage II amassment, Dr. Umar’s AKN excision technique yielded a relatively thin linear scar along the posterior hairline. The Walnut park patient’s only regret was not seeking intervention for his razor bump behind the head sooner.
While other surgical procedures for AKN razor bumps behind the head may form an inverted “U” shaped scar, Dr. Umar’s special excision method typically encourages cosmetically unacceptable scarring along the rear hairline.
