Hair Transplant Comfort During The Procedure

Greetings,

Today I want to discuss comfort during the hair transplant procedure. Since I have had multiple hair transplant procedures myself I understand exactly how it feels to sit in the hair transplant chair for 5-8 hours for a procedure. Because of this, I designed a custom memory foam cushion to sit on top of my exam chairs to provide the maximum amount of comfort during the procedure. This makes the chair feel like a soft bed as opposed to a typical exam chair, which is not necessarily made with the idea of sitting in it for hours at a time. The feedback from this memory foam cushion has been amazing and it’s just one more small detail that makes the entire day of the hair transplant procedure that much more comfortable. My thinking is that the day of the procedure should feel more like a day at the spa as opposed to an uncomfortable experience.

All the best,

Engineering Organs- Is Hair Cloning Next?

Greetings,

Today I want to highlight a new article I just saw on CNN discussing how various organs were engineered in the lab to create new organs for individuals that were missing these specific organs.

This is a huge step forward for organ cloning as the closer we get to being able to clone tissue, the closer we get to being able to clone hair. Once we can clone hair we will no longer need to harvest donor hair from the scalp and every person will have unlimited supply for whatever demand they have for scalp hair. I am not trying to say that we are a few years away from being able to clone hair in practical terms, but I know think that we may see hair cloning in the real world in 10-20 years.

I can’t wait for that day!

I have attached a link to the article below.

All the best,

Eyebrow and Eyelash Transplant Article

Greetings,

Here is a link to a recent article from the UK press about a woman who underwent an eyebrow and eyelash transplant. Eyebrow transplants have recently become much more common as more people have discovered this procedure exists. Eyelash transplants are much more uncommon. Because the hair is taken from the scalp it will grow longer and need to be trimmed. This poses 2 problems for eyelash transplants. Firstly the hair can grow into the eye, thus scratching the cornea. Secondly, because you will need to trim the eyelash hairs every few weeks there is a high risk of injury to the eye. In addition, because the eyelid is so thin, and has so many muscles and nerves in a small area, there is a very high incidence of complications in eyelash procedures. It is for all these reason that I do not perform eyelash transplant procedures.

On the other hand, Eyebrow transplant procedures in the hands of an experienced eyebrow transplant surgeon can be very successful and I have been performing these procedures for over 10 years. In the patient highlighted in this article, she has a tremendous amount of eyebrow pencil makeup on her eyebrows in the “after” photo, thus not really giving an accurate image of what her transplanted eyebrows really look like.

Please feel free to click through my eyebrow transplant photos or go to my eyebrow transplant website www.EyebrowTransplantMD.com for more information.

Beard Transplant

Greetings,

With all the recent press surrounding beard transplants I wanted to highlight a patient of mine. This patient had 2 bald patches in his beard in the same spot on both sides. This is genetic and a very common phenomenon. In this case I harvested the donor hair from his neck beard via FUE and transplanted the grafts into the bald patches. The result is shown 10 months later. The patient was very happy with his results.

All the best,

Eyebrow Transplants For Men

Greetings,

I have been performing eyebrow transplants for over 10 years and was one of the first physicians to focus on this aspect of hair transplantation. The creative component to eyebrow transplants is very different than transplanting hair on the scalp. In many cases we need to fit hundred of hair follicles into a very tiny space, all with a very particular angle and orientation and all to create a completely natural shape which is very visible on the face. It is for this reason that the best eyebrow transplant results typically come from physicians that are performing many of these cases and have a very high artistic component to their work.

More often recently I am getting inquiries from men asking for eyebrow transplants. In the past it was traditionally women who inquired about this procedure, but as more people find out about it, men are opting for the procedure as well. In this particular case the male patient had very weak eyebrows from birth and had an eyebrow tattoo performed to create the illusion of eyebrows. Most people are very dissatisfied with eyebrow tattoos and this patient was no exception. He did not like the shape of the tattoo (he felt the arch was too feminine) and it was very unnatural looking overall. He presented to me to create a more masculine shape (flatter) and to create natural looking eyebrows over the existing tattoo. The results below are shown 6 months after the patient received his eyebrow transplant. He should see a little more growth over the next 3-6 months, but he is already very happy with the current results.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.

Interesting Article About Female Hair Transplants

Greetings,

Hair transplants and hair restoration procedures are known to be more common with men. The inquiries for the Hair Transplant procedure have grown due to the fact that more women are starting to experience hair loss. Women are losing hair due to several different reasons, such as high stress levels, iron deficiency, and genetics. This article states that it is a condition that affects six million women in Britain. I am very curious to see what the number is in the USA. Today’s procedure is very different than the hair transplant procedures of yesteryear. Today an amazing natural hair transplant comes through the hands of a few very talented and creative doctors. It is artistry combined with technology that lead to a completely natural result. A link to the article is below.

Early Growth Post Hair Transplant Procedure

Greetings,

Typically the information I give patients is that at around the 6 month post hair transplant procedure time period they should see 50-60% of the transplanted hair growing and that by 12 months post procedure they should see most of the  growth. From 12-18 months the hair thickens in caliber thus increasing the cosmetic density.

I have recently been seeing patients who are showing more significant growth at 6-7 months post hair transplant than I typically see and I wanted to post these photos for you to see. Nothing specific was changed for these cases so I am assuming they are just fast growers, but I will continue to keep you updated to see if this is a trend that continues.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.

Celebrity Hair Transplant

Greetings,

Today I want to highlight an article I came across from the UK. A well known athlete Phil Tufnell underwent a hair transplant recently and discussed his experience with the British press. More and more celebrities are discussing their hair transplant experiences allowing people to know that hair transplants are very common amongst the celebrity crowd. In most cases the public never knows if the celebrity has underwent a hair transplant procedure as most tend to keep the information to themselves, and of course we as physicians guard the privacy of our patients extremely closely. Privacy is of the utmost concern in most of these cases. However, when the occasional celebrity decides to go public with their experience it helps to give people a feeling of confidence in the procedure. If someone who makes their living based on their looks is comfortable undergoing a hair transplant, than certainly the average person should feel comfortable that in the “right” hands they can have completely natural results with a hair transplant procedure. I have provided a link to the original article below.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.
