Early Hair Transplant Growth, FUE And PRP

My latest video series documenting clinics has begun with my review of Arocha Hair Restoration in Houston, Tx. I already put together a short preview video on Youtube. I'm excited by some of the footage I shot and I'm looking forward to editing and sharing the results with my viewers and readers. One of the cool things I got to do was meet some of Dr. Arocha's patients, two of which just happened to come in on their own as the clinic did not call them to show up. It's … read more

A Hair Transplant Award for Dr. Lupanzula


I've seen hair transplant award after hair transplant award given to hair transplant doctors and hair transplant clinics over the years but to be honest, most of them are empty and offer little substance beyond a marketing opportunity. Don't get me wrong, they can be great but most of them simply aren't. One hair transplant award that stands out to me is the hair transplant award received by Dr. Lupanzula at the Brazilian Association of Hair Restoration Surgery (ABCRC) conference in August of 2016 Dr. Lupanzula traveled to Curitiba, Brazil, … read more

Do NOT Have Hair Transplant Surgery!!!

What sense does it make for the Hair Transplant Mentor to say "don't have a hair transplant"? It makes a lot of sense, actually. This is the first episode in a new series I'm starting designed to educate you about hair loss and hair transplant surgery in a way that's never been done before. In this episode I'm going to snap you back into the reality of what can really happen if you have a hair transplant surgery and it does not work out the way you hope. This is … read more

Chicago FUE Hair Transplant

Chicago Hair Transplant? What does Chicago have to do with this post? Well, I've completed the edit of part 4 of the hair transplant documentary series featuring Dr. Ron Shapiro and the team at Shapiro Medical and it should benefit not just Minneapolis FUE hair transplant patients but Chicago patients as well. Why? Because Dr. Ron and the team are really close to Chicago which is where many of their patients come from.

Texas Hair Transplant Clinic – A Preview

I just got back from another trip after taking several months off. I have to say that it was great being on the road again. This time I finally went to see the Texas hair transplant clinic, Arocha Hair Restoration in Houston. I've spent a lot of time with Dr. Arocha on the phone and through email for the past year. I can finally say that Arocha Hair Restoration is a powerful choice if you want a Texas hair transplant clinic. In fact, I put Dr. Arocha and the … read more

Hair Transplant Information

I get this question from time to time. "What are your qualifications?" This is usually from the occasional new guy just starting his hair loss or hair transplant information search or from a new to the industry doctor feeling his way through the online hair world for the first time. Inevitably they'll find my name, this website, or they'll see me on Spencer Kobren's The Bald Truth every week. Somehow, they find me so it is a logical question to ask since I don't give the appearance of being tied … read more

Electrolysis Hair Transplant Repair?

Have you ever seen an electrolysis hair transplant repair? Part 4 of the hair transplant documentary series highlighting Dr. Jerry Cooley of Hair Center in Charlotte, North Carolina is now live.

In my career I have had the question presented probably a hundred times if not more. I would be sitting there with the patient, or on the phone if they were from out of the country, and talking to them about their . It would be the same thing, over and over; a hairline that was … read more

Hair Loss Treatments – A Review of a Review

It is guaranteed that you already know that , and the marketing that comes with it, is an absolute travesty of human nature. For decades, and even centuries, man has played on the fears and low self esteem of others by promising luscious locks of hair, and the rewards it brings with it, through the use of various lotions, potions and gadgets that are of course never free. This is true in many aspects of life but the market occupied by the hair loss sufferer has been … read more

1st Annual World FUE Institute Worshop

The FUE workshop. This is the most powerful annual meeting that any hair restoration doctor would want to be a part of. There are a lot of changes happening as has been the case for the past few years, both good and bad and one of the highlights has been how FUE has overtaken FUSS as the dominant and preferred method of surgical hair restoration worldwide which in and of itself has an upside and a downside. I could talk for hours about this subject alone but the upside is … read more

FUE Transection Rates

I love this video I shot of Dr. Lupanzula for two reasons. The first reason is because I really enjoyed filming Dr. Lupanzula in action. His skills with hand held manual FUE extraction are phenomenal and he really knows what he's doing. It was a real joy watching him in action. The second reason is because the video gives me the opportunity to teach you about something you most likely have never heard of; what it means when you hear about FUE transection rates.

FUE transection rates are not … read more
