This patient came to Dr. Umar after a previous surgery for Acne Keloidalis Nuchae due to the reemergence of new bumps on the surface of his scar which started happening six months after the procedure. Steroid injections were ineffective in clearing these symptoms.
Dr. Umar had performed a second surgical excision procedure on this patient. He then closed the wound which did result in a horizontal but cosmetically acceptable scar. According to the patient, this wound closure was the main difference between the first and second procedure.
According to Dr. Umar, AKN does have the tendency to return after surgery. And sometimes the resulting scar can stretch and become wider.
Excising the entire affected tissue and using proper closure techniques is important for preventing the AKN from returning. Many people, however continue to believe that there is no solution for advanced manifestations of Acne Keloidalis Nuchae.
This patient was very happy with his results. Clearing the AKN tissue mass has helped him feel more confident about his appearance.
