You know the saying; "just when you think you've seen it all...". This is one of those moments. I often get questions from prospective hair transplant patients about the safety of traveling to Turkey with the current crisis going on in neighboring Syria and the potential for terror attacks. I understand the concern, I really do, which is one of the reasons why I made the hair transplant documentary to show people what it is like to travel to Turkey to get a hair transplant. In my opinion it is … read more
I am very happy to announce the first ever true hair transplant pro-bono repair program. This program is called Project Repair. Project Repair has been somewhat of a dream of mine for many years. I have always wanted to be able to provide an opportunity for hair transplant surgery victims to receive the repair they desperately need. Unfortunately, due to overwhelming hair transplant cost that most patients are subject to many patients cannot afford the repair that is necessary for a normal and natural appearance. I was once one … read more
One of the things I see most often on the hair transplant discussion forums is a patient of a clinic that has already had surgery come onto a forum and ask for hair transplant advice about how to take care of their scalp after surgery. It never fails. This happens at least once a week on all of the forums and it points to a potential problem for both parties involved.
Hair Transplant Advice
One of the challenges that patients face when they have a hair transplant surgery is poor … read more
I get a lot of questions on a regular basis. It takes up at least an hour of my day almost every day to answer these questions. One of the more common questions I get asks about hair transplant recommendations and if the doctors I work with are the only doctors I think are doing good work. The answer is more complicated than a simple “yes” or a “no”.
I come from a hair transplant background where my opinion was rooted in the experience I had with one specific clinic. … read more
Move over, ARTAS! Almost 100 years ago a Dr. J. S. Parsegan started advertising a hair restoration procedure in the magazine Science and Invention that involved a hair transplant machine used to implant hairs into a patient’s scalp. The doctor would not transplant hair as we know it today but rather he would isolate a long hair of about 18 to 20 inches on a female patient and implant these hairs into the scalp of a male patient using the hair transplant machine.
This had nothing to do … read more
Another year and another ISHRS meeting has come to a close. This year it was in Chicago, Illinois at the Chicago Hilton in downtown. This years event was recognized as having the highest attendance of any previous ISHRS meeting in it's 23 year history which is a very big accomplishment. The Chicago Hilton was more than adequate for handling such an event as it has 1544 rooms. It is a massive facility with multiple convention rooms on different levels. This year's event was a bit different for me personally as … read more
It is with great pleasure that I am welcoming Dr. Jerry Cooley to the Hair Transplant Mentor™ team. Dr. Cooley is in my opinion one of the greats in the field of hair restoration and hair loss research. Dr. Cooley has been performing high quality, ultra refined hair restoration surgery for nearly twenty years. I don't have an official review of his clinic to share but I will in the near future. Some people may ask me why I have decided to work with Dr. Cooley if there is not … read more
This is an ISHRS Conference report from an earlier version of Hairtransplantmentor.com before the site went down and many articles were lost. I was able to find this article in an old backup archive so I am reposting here. A few notes about this writeup. As I read through what I had written two years ago it gives me a chuckle because so much has changed since. I'll be going to the 2015 ISHRS Conference in Chicago so it will be interesting to see whether or not my perceptions are … read more
I'm happy to announce the next doctor joining the Hair Transplant Mentor™team, Belgium FUE hair transplant doctor Dr. Emorane Lupanzula from Brussels. I had the pleasure of first meeting Dr. Lupanzula in Istanbul Turkey during the 3rd Annual Mediterranean FUE Workshop. Dr. Lupanzula was on the faculty of the Workshop and was a participating surgeon as invited by the organizers of the event. It was here that I was able to witness Dr. Lupanzula in action where he demonstrated his surgical techniques and how he performs FUE. Dr. Lupanzula also … read more
This is not part of my hair transplant documentary series but when I was in Istanbul for the 2015 3rd Annual Mediterranean FUE Workshop I tried to take advantage of the opportunity and interview some doctors that I know. It was really busy and while I got some verbal commitments from Dr. Cole, Dr. Lorenzo, Dr. Rahal and others it just didn't work out that way. I blame the excellent organizational skills of Asmed Surgical Centre and Dr. Koray Erdogan for keeping us all so busy with activities:) I'm not … read more
