Burn of the scalp treated with a Balloon Expander surgery (photo)

The photo shows where the balloon was placed behind the scar into the normal scalp. The balloon in then inflated twice or three times a week through a ‘port’ and as the balloon enlarges, the scalp stretches. Eventually there is enough stretch to advance the normal stretched scalp forward after the bun scar is removed.  These are miraculous reconstructive surgeries (not done by me).
