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 consider myself to be very lucky because I'm in a position that allows me to travel to different clinics all over North America and Europe to meet and evaluate clinics and I get to work with seemingly endless gigabytes of video footage to show you why I think the doctors I work with are worth considering. Another benefit is that I get to watch surgeries from various world class surgeons. This is a one of my passions and when I arrived at the Texas hair restoration clinic of Dr. … read more
Where do I begin? Low Level Laser Therapy for hair loss, or "LLLT" for short, has been around for a long time. The first ever mention of low level laser therapy having a positive effect on hair growth was in 1967. A Hungarian scientist named Dr. Endre Mester was using the new laser technology to see if it would cause cancer in mice. I say "new" because lasers were only invented seven years earlier in 1960. During his experiment he shaved some mice so that the laser could better penetrate … read more
I'm proud to present the conclusion of the Hair Transplant Documentary series featuring Dr. Jerry Cooley and his FUE repair patient that was so kind to allow me to document his procedure from beginning to end. This was a fun shoot and I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Haircenter and getting to watch Dr. Cooley and his team in action. Now that we're at the end of this portion of my videos series with Dr. Cooley I can talk more about what it was that I liked about Dr. Cooley … read more

FUE scar repair usually refers to using follicular unit extraction to fill in a scar that results from a FUSS (follicular unit strip surgery) but it can also mean filling scars from other types of problems. I touched on this in another blog post where I discuss burn scars. Today however, in my latest Hair Transplant Documentary Series and my visit to Medikemos Hair Restoration in Brussels, Dr. Lupanzula mentions how he regularly works on strip scars by filling them with hair using his manual, hand held manual FUE approach. … read more

Living with a hair transplant is something that most people don't give a lot of thought to. This is one of the biggest reasons, I believe, why some hair transplant patients are unhappy with their results. They may think that the result should be fuller, or that the density should be higher. Some even think that with one hair transplant all of their troubles will disappear, because obviously their problems stem from their hair issues.
Hair Transplant Class #004 is in session.
As I continue to think up new subjects … read more
FUE hair transplant surgery is getting more and more popular and in this video I shot at Shapiro Medical in Minneapolis, Minnesota you finally get to see how Shapiro Medical performs FUE hair transplant surgery. I originally shot this video in late February, 2016 and am only now uploading a final edit for your review, nearly ten months later. What is interesting to me is that when I was shooting this FUE hair transplant surgery documentary of Shapiro Medical they had been using the WAW FUE system developed by Dr. … read more
Should you have technician FUE surgery or FUE surgery performed mainly by a doctor? Techniciancentric hair transplant surgery has seen an explosion in the past five years due to the growth of FUE as a hair transplant procedure. What is "techniciancentric" FUE? It is FUE surgery performed mainly by technicians will little, and in many cases, NO involvement from a doctor. Technician FUE surgery has seen this growth because of what I have described many times before as a low threshold of entry into the field of hair transplant surgery … read more
