Here is an email I recently received form a patient of mine who I performed an eyebrow transplant procedure on, and her husband received a scalp hair transplant from me.
Husband and wife patients are becoming more common in my practice and it’s always gratifying to hear their feedback.
All the best,
Marc Dauer, M.D.
Husband & wife grow hair together thanks to Dr. Dauer!
I’ve been encouraging my husband for 10 years to get hair transplants. After seeing Dr. Dauer’s results in hair transplant photos I knew he was the Doctor for my husband.
The procedure was exactly how Doc explained, he was completely professional and thorough, he said that his hair would start growing within 4 months following the hair procedure and with much anticipation it did! His results were so spectacular that I decided to go in and have my eyebrows done!
Yes, Doc Dauer does eye brow transplants, lots of them from what I understand, I was sick of spending thousands of dollars with professional brow specialists & brow pencils trying to help my brows grow. There is NOTHING on the market that helped me, I tried it all, revita lash/brow, lattice, to name a few, Doc said that due to over plucking when I was younger and weak eye brows in general, all played a part in loss of eye brow hair growth over the years. After the procedure I was swollen for a few days, so I just wore sunglasses, the swelling went down immediately and within 4 months, I have full, gorgeous, model eye brows, my brow hair grows so fast I can hardly keep up with trimming! I threw out my brow pencils, brow color and haven’t been back to an expensive “brow specialist” since. I have recommended Dr. Dauer to EVERYONE I know.
Here is a patient who came to me after having undergone 2 previous trip harvest procedures from another local physician. He decided he was done with the strip harvest procedure and wanted to have an FUE procedure. When I shaved the scalp to perform FUE his precious strip scars were clearly visible and also demonstrated how his previous physician had created “stacked scars” in certain locations instead of including the old strip scar in the new incision.
This is against the 10 commandments of hair transplant surgery.
In every instance of a patient having another strip harvest hair transplant procedure after having one prior, the previous scar should be removed.
If the previous scar is too wide or the scalp too tight FUE should be considered.
NEVER should a physician create a stacked scar, which in reality just creates one huge scar.
This is a prime example of what not to do and is either laziness or ignorance on the part of the hair transplant surgeon who did this.
On this procedure the patient was primarily concerned with creating density in the frontal scalp, but after seeing these photos, the patient has decided in the future to have me place FUE grafts into these scars to help cover them.
Just another example of why it is imperative to do thorough research prior to choosing your hair transplant surgeon.
Here is a patient of mine who received just under 1800 grafts via FUE to the frontal scalp, mid scalp, and crown. Given the large amount of area to cover this was a fairly conservative number of grafts. Despite this, the results are clearly evident. I personally harvested each follicle using a 0.8mm punch tip.
The patient is thrilled.
Here is a patient of mine who happens to be a physician himself who was experiencing thinning in the frontal scalp. The patient is in his late 20′s so we were not going to consider lowering the hairline, but rather increasing the density in the frontal scalp. Also, because of the patient’s young age and the fact that he will likely lose significantly more hair in the future, the decision was made to use a judicious number of grafts so as to maintain donor grafts for the future when more hair loss occurs.
The patients results are shown after 1 year and he is thrilled!
Here is a patient of mine I recently saw in a 1 year follow up. He happens to be a physician himself and wrote a testimonial that I have posted below describing his experience undergoing his hair transplant procedure.
I hope you enjoy reading.
All the best,
Marc Dauer, MD
I was on the fence regarding hair transplant, and an now over one year after the procedure. The changes are gradual, and only those who I told I had the procedure could tell I had it. Interestingly, I’ve received other comments regarding my appearance, for example, asking if I’ve lost weight. I haven’t lost weight, but could not be more pleased with my decision to undergo the hair transplant.
Dr. Dauer should be your first and last stop for hair transplantation. Being a fellow MD, albeit in a different specialty, the candor and professionalism offered by Dr. Dauer was reassuring, as I had preconceived notions what would be best for me in that I believed FUE would be ideal. Dr. Dauer patiently and thoroughly went over my options after his examination, and we decided on the strip harvest procedure. He is an expert with both, and I could not be more pleased with the decision to go with this option and the results. The process is gradual, and having a follow up with Dr. Dauer a bit over a year reminded me of the significant improvement in density, coverage and fullness when I viewed by pre-procedure photos and my scar is pretty much invisible. In short, one of the better decisions vising Dr. Dauer and placing my trust in his care. Long Beach, Physician
