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
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.
One of the most frequent emails I've received this year is from people asking about how my PRP results from Dr. Cooley has turned out. I learned that a LOT of people are interested in my PRP results because obviously people are always looking for new options in the follicular fight. Well, the wait is over so you can now see my PRP results at five months (which is early) and my thoughts on the experience.
PRP for hair loss is a controversial issue and it has been since it … read more
The tides of change are rolling in. What was once the powerhouse destination in the hair transplant world is beginning to crumble for a number of reasons. I'm talking about the country of Turkey which has been growing as the #1 destination for the explosive industry known as "medical tourism". For the past several years I've been reading about patients wishing to have an FUE hair transplant in Turkey due to the extremely low price and the supposed high quality of work that could be had. At the peak of … read more
To see an FUE hair transplant video online is no big deal but to see Dr. Ron Shapiro in an FUE hair transplant video is quite rare. This is part three of my hair transplant documentary series featuring Hair Transplant Mentor™ partner Dr. Ron Shapiro of Shapiro Medical in Minneapolis, Minnesota. To recap part one and part two, I shared what the accommodations are like for patients that travel to have their hair transplant with Dr. Shapiro (which is most of his patient base) and how to get to the … read more
Part three of the FUE repair hair transplant documentary with Dr. Jerry Cooley of Charlotte, North Carolina is now available. To remind you, the patient in this documentary already had FUE hair restoration at another clinic in North Carolina and is having FUE repair surgery with Dr. Cooley. There is also an interesting part of the documentary where we see, for the first time, nearly 1000 grafts extracted via FUE in only thirty seconds! Ok, not really, but it sounds cool:) In reality, you see the first ever time lapse … read more
Hair transplant safety and hair transplant care. Two of the things I look for when I travel to new clinics for review is how they treat their patients while they are having surgery and how they protect the patient from infection and general harm. Hair transplant safety is a big issue for me. I've had some people ask me behind the scenes why I keep mentioning these priorities as being so important to me and it is simple. I feel that too many clinics … read more
FUE and the subsequent FUE problems we face today were never foreseen by most people even a few short years ago. In 2013 my eyes were opened wide. I was in San Francisco, California attending the ISHRS conference with one of my former employers. For eleven years before this conference I had been the mouthpiece and face of the true megasession hair transplant procedure via follicular unit strip surgery. Ironically, I never had a megasession myself as the largest surgery I've ever had was 2488 grafts. For the last few … read more
When considering hair restoration you should always keep your options open and look at anyone that catches your eye. No matter whom I work with I'll always say this because I don't believe that any single list is responsible for making decisions for anyone. They're a good place to start but nothing more. Another thing you should consider is when doctors recommend treatments even when they don't offer them themselves.
Take for instance Dr. Christian Bisanga of Brussels, Belgium. Dr. Bisanga has a great reputation and he's certainly got some … read more
Dr. Emorane Lupanzula from Medikemos Hair Restoration in Brussels will be visiting London again on July 30th, 2016. Dr. Lupanzula will meet with you in a one on one private setting so that he can answer your questions regarding the current state of FUE. You'll also be able to ask questions regarding FUE and his philosophy and approach to proper patient care.
Medikemos Hair Restoration is currently the only "doctor only" FUE clinic in Brussels which means technicians are not allowed to perform your surgery. This is but one of … read more
