• Setting Hair Restoration Goals

    Setting goals may be the most challenging aspect of planning hair restoration.  Many of us can be emotionally devastated by our hair loss.  We tend to want to fix what’s missing right now.

    Until hair cloning, hair multiplication, gene therapy, or anything else becomes viable and affordable, we are left to work within the confines of our available donor supplies.  And for the sake of our discussion, our references will be to scalp donor.   Hair harvested from other regions of the body are methodology still in their infancy stages and because of the lack of consistent results (yields), we cannot and will not rely on it as a realistic or feasible donor source.  Hopefully that will change in the near future.

    Hair restoration is an all encompassing term and extends beyond the realm of surgery.  First and foremost, patients have to decide if they will use the available medications approved by the FDA for treating MPB. Interestingly enough, the earlier an individual decides to begin treatment after formal diagnosis, the better overall results achieved including regrowth.  These medications are Propecia (men only, finasteride 1mg daily), and Rogaine (minoxidil 3% & 5% strength).   Why is this an important element in setting one’s goals? We know that MPB is a progressive disorder in its nature so without the effective use of hair loss medications, the loss will continue in its predestined course.  Read more ›

     
  • The Future of Hair Transplants: This Week On The Bald Truth 3/15/09

    IAHRS hair transplant pioneer Alan Bauman, M.D. will be joining Spencer and Dave to discuss a new and exciting breakthrough in surgical hair restoration.

    The targeted removal of follicular unit grafts without the use of a scalpel is known as Follicular Unit Extraction(FUE). One major drawback, among others, of this procedure is that it’s extremely labor intensive which limits the number a grafts that can be moved in a single session which in turn dramatically increases the cost of FUE to the consumer.

    Dr. Bauman is one the first hair transplant surgeons in the world to incorporate the new NeoGraft hair transplant device into his practice and is seeing very impressive results.

    Fast, safe, efficient and cost effective FUE hair transplant procedures is what the manufacturers of the new NeoGraft hair transplant machine promise. But can the NeoGraft deliver?

    Join us tonight to discuss this exciting breakthrough and to find out if in fact the NeoGraft will be a big part of the future of surgical hair restoration.
