New Patient Testimonial Video- FUE Hair Transplant

Greetings,

Here is a patient of mine who received 1560 grafts via FUE to the frontal scalp and temporal peaks. He has graciously agreed to share his experience undergoing the procedure from day 1 until now, 1 year post procedure.

I hope you enjoy watching.

All the best,

Mustache FUE Hair Transplant

Greetings,

Here is a patient of mine who wanted a Tom Selleck circa Magnum PI mustache. His mustache was a little thin genetically.

I harvested just over 700 grafts via FUE using a 0.75mm extraction tip from the neck beard. That way I would be transferring hair from one area to another that has the same quality to it.

The “after” photos show the patient one week after the procedure and as you can see the scarring from the extractions in the donor area is almost invisible and the mustache appears significantly wider and denser than it was pre procedure. The patient will shed most of the transplanted mustache hairs and they will regrow starting at 3-4 months but this photo is a sneak peak into the final result that we should see in 9-12 months.

The patient is thrilled and excited to see his final results then.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, MD

New Testimonial From Husband and Wife Patients

Greetings,

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.

Hair Transplants- Get It Right The First Time

Greetings,

Here is another interview I did with Spencer Kobren of “The Bald Truth” discussing the things to look out for in your hair transplant surgeon and in the planning of your hair transplant procedure.

It is imperative to “get it right” the first time so that you don’t end up with an unnatural look or a problem in the donor or recipient region.

I hope you enjoy watching.

All the best,

Hair Transplant Video Testimonial

Greetings,

Here is a patient of mine who I perfumed a hair transplant of 2258 grafts via FUT. The patient has very fine, straight hair, which is the least ideal hair type when trying to maximize cosmetic density, but despite this the results are still significant and the patient is pleased.

The patient also had a previous procedure with another physician and discusses the difference between my procedure and his previous one.

I hope you enjoy watching.

All the best,

Hair Characteristics In Hair Transplants

Greetings,

Today I will discuss the difference in hair type for hair transplants. Based on studies 0.1mm increase in the diameter of the hair follicle can add up to 30% increased cosmetic density. This means that the greatest factor affecting cosmetic density is the thickness of the hair follicle. People with coarse hair will have a much better cosmetic result than people with fine hair with the same number of follicles. In addition, curly hair will yield a better cosmetic result than straight hair. Also, the less color contrast between the hair and the scalp (grey hair on light skin versus dark hair on white skin) the better the cosmetic result.

The analogy I typically use it to imagine a forest of trees in front of you. If the trees are thick with large wavy branches you will see through less of the forest than thin trees with small flimsy branches. This is the same with hair. Coarse curly hair will always yield a better cosmetic result than fine straight hair.

This is not to say that people with fine straight hair are not good candidates for the procedure, on the contrary they can be excellent candidates. Prospective hair transplant patients need to know this information in order to prepare themselves for realistic expectation of the outcome of their hair transplant procedure.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.

 

FUE Hair Transplant To Hairline

Greetings,

Here is a patient of mine who received just over 1100 grafts via FUE to the hairline and frontal scalp. The grafts were extracted manually using a 0.8mm extraction tip.

The grafted region and the donor regions are shown 1 week post procedure and as you can see there is almost no evidence of scarring in the donor region and very little to be seen in the recipient region other than the new transplanted grafts.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.

ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant FUE- Is It Better Or Worse For The Donor Region?

Greetings,

As more and more physicians purchase the ARTAS robotic machine for automated FUE there seems to be much more information and misinformation regarding the benefits of FUE and specifically of the ARTAS machine performing the extractions. I am a self described “tech geek” and “gadget fanatic”. This is why when the robot was initially introduced I was very intrigued and wanted to immediately investigate it as it seemed like a perfect fit for my personality. What I found was grafts that did not looks as good as my manual FUE grafts and scars in the donor region that were significantly larger than my hand held FUE scars. It was so dramatic that I decided not to purchase the machine.

Regarding the scarring from the ARTAS FUE, most of the reasons for undergoing FUE in the first place is the elimination of the linear scar and the ability to cut the hair very short without any scarring evident. What I saw from the ARTAS was “moth-eaten” donor regions after a single procedure (see photos below) thus negating the possibility to even shave the hair short! In addition this moth eaten donor area after a single procedure would also preclude the patients from harvesting additional grafts from the same area, which is also a huge negative, as almost all people continue to need additional grafts over time as hair loss progresses with age.

What the ARTAS does provide to physicians who purchase it is the marketing “wow” factor of having a robot harvest their FUE grafts. This can be a powerful marketing tool and in many cases can even allow the physician to switch the patient out to a strip procedure if they realize that FUE is not for them. It also can take the physician completely out of the harvesting equation by delegating technicians to perform the entire FUE harvest without the physician even being in the room. Finally, manual FUE is an acquired art, and not every hair transplant surgeon is capable or proficient in this art, and the ARTAS machine allows everyone to get into the FUE game without knowing how to extract grafts manually.

In my practice, I perform all my FUE harvesting personally with a hand held punch that typically measures 0.9mm in diameter. I perform about 50/50 FUE and FUT and am equally proficient in both. My job as a hair transplant surgeon is to educate my patient as to the benefits and drawbacks of both FUE and FUT and to let them make the decision that works best for them.

My advice is to research extensively before choosing a physician. Make sure you have seen many results (both donor and recipient regions) of both procedures. Most importantly, don’t be fooled by the “marketing hype”. Choose a physician that you truly trust, as a competent and ethical physician will always afford the best chance of a great result.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.
