I Terminated My Back of Head Bumps, Thanks To Dr. Bumpinator : This patient started to notice small bumps emerging on the back of his head. Over time, instead of going away or subsiding, they continued to get bigger. Of course, these were no ordinary back-of-the-head razor bumps, but rather Acne Keloidalis Nuchae. He turned to Dr. Bumpinator for help.
Patient’s AKN Back of Head Bumps Before Removal By Dr. Bumpinator
The very first step taken by Dr.Bumpinator was to classify the patient’s condition to determine the right method for removing the bumps. This particular case is representative of an AKN class 2 plaque negative condition, making this patient eligible for surgical removal.
AKN Patient’s Procedure Photos – Dr.Bumpinator to the Rescue
Dr.Bumpinator successfully removed the AKN bumps, leaving behind a clean linear scar in discreet alignment with the patient’s posterior hairline. This was achieved by implementing two unique surgical techniques that he developed himself:
- The BAT excision enables the final scar to take the form of a straight, horizontal, linear scar and defines the posterior hairline 
- The use of tension sutures facilitates the wound closure process along with a more predictable timeframe
The wound edges will not meet and close on their own, especially with this large-sized excision. To help the process along, Dr. Bumpinator applied the use of tension sutures which pull the edges allowing the skin to produce new collagen along the right trajectory to promote proper closure.
Before and After Photos and Video Testimonial- A Newly Found Confidence Replaces the AKN Bumps
Dr. Bumpinator’s procedure allowed the patient to finally be free of his AKN, once and for all. Instead of a bare area with bumps, there is now a cohesive body of hair, minus the AKN.
In his testimony, the patient shares that if he could rate his experience on a scale of 1-100, he would give his Dr.Bumpinator procedure a 500!

Frequently Asked Questions
Could laser have been used to help this patient?
The treatment chosen is influenced by the type of lesions you have as well as patient preference. To determine the best treatment for you, visit Dr. U for evaluation. This patient was a much better candidate for surgery, instead.
How would a person know if their bumps are AKN or not
There is no way for a person to know for sure, on their own. It is best to have them checked out by a doctor who specializes in AKN to avoid misdiagnosis. With prompt action, it is possible to prevent the condition from worsening.
