AKN Surgery Results: Video Results After Surgical Removal By Dr Umar

AKN Surgery Results: Dr. Umar has helped many patients who suffer from acne keloidalis nuchae (AKN) with AKN surgery. Acne keloidalis nuchae is a severe type of type of folliculitis. This chronic inflammatory condition affects hair follicles and appears as pustules, papules, scalp lesions and scalp plagues. Dr. Umar tailors his surgical procedures to individuals with a variety of AKN nonsurgical treatments and AKN surgical treatments.


Despite the difficult aspects for treating acne keloidalis nuchae, there are viable treatment options for each stage of severity. AKN surgical treatments include posterior hairline migration, serial excisions and trichophytic closure. Surgical AKN treatments are appropriate for the inflammatory condition when other AKN nonsurgical treatments fail. For advanced cases, Dr. Umar combines surgical excisions and trichophytic closure combinations.

When acne keloidalis nuchae advances, the lesions grow larger. This causes pain, itching, pus discharge and possible bleeding in the region of AKN. African-Americans are those mostly affected with AKN, followed by Asians and Hispanic/Latinos. It rarely occurs in Caucasians. Acne keloidalis nuchae is a permanent, chronic condition that is difficult to treat.
