I speak with happy hair transplant patients all the time and it's great to hear their stories but I also speak with people every week that haven't had surgery and many of them are asking about the odds of having a bad outcome, or they've already had a bad outcome and are really angry with their doctor. The latter issue is what has been on my mind. Happy hair transplant patients are what all clinics strive for. I don't think that any clinic is out there trying to scam people … read more
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
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
In part I of my visit to see Minnesota Hair Transplant doctor, Dr. Ron Shapiro, I shared what the accommodations are like and how to get to the clinic. Yea, I know; fun stuff! I always start my videos with that type of information because I know that a lot of people travel from outside of the region to visit doctors I work with so I feel it's important and helpful to my viewers to get an idea of what they can expect outside of the hair transplant clinic, … read more
The idea of hair transplant video results is almost mundane now but this was not always the case. Through my career in the hair transplant industry I have been responsible for changing the way that hair transplant clinics document their results. I was the first person to champion the elimination of flash photography because of how it gives an unrealistically dense and natural result in pictures. My reasoning was that the result looks better in photos than in reality and patients don't normally walk around with flash bulbs exploding around … read more
As a kid going through the daily routine of life hair loss is NEVER anywhere remotely near the forefront of your mind. When I was growing up in Tennessee I could not wait to get out of school so I could go run through the mountains or tinker with my "computer" and play video games. One of the things I also liked doing was staying up late at night hoping to find a science fiction movie or catch the next episode of Saturday Night Live. One thing I would invariably … read more
The following is a post contributed by Hair Loss Studio and touches on the subject I discussed earlier regarding the cost of hair transplant surgery.
There are a great many different factors that come into play when considering the overall cost of hair transplant surgery, both in the UK and in the US.
A hair transplant will typically be costed according to the number of grafts that the patient will require. 'Graft' is the term used to describe a natural grouping or cluster of hairs, which … read more
This is one of the more common questions one will find on the internet when doing hair transplant research. It is also one of the most logical questions to ask since you can't have a hair transplant until you know how much does a hair transplant cost.
There are a lot of factors that go into finding out how much does a hair transplant cost. This post will examine many of these factors and explain how they affect the cost of a hair transplant.
How Much Does A Hair Transplant… read more
This is the latest episode of The Bald Truth (air date January 12, 2016) and I wanted to share it with you because it touches on an important subject. With the way that hair restoration (surgical and non-surgical) has taken off in the past few years the landscape is getting more and more competitive. With this increase in competition there seems to me to be less emphasis on education and more emphasis on marketing. There was never a danger of there being too much education but in the past it … read more
This is question asked by a new member on Bald Truth Talk forums about having a hair transplant consultation and it is touching on some issues that I've spoken about before so I think it is time for a blog post about the subject.
A hair transplant consultation is always "worth it" if you are trying to find information regarding your candidacy for a hair transplant. In fact, it is essential if one is to know for sure whether or not a hair transplant is even possible. Make no mistake, … read more
