The Journey of the Hair Transplant Train

Posted by:

Treating hair loss is a journey that needs to be mapped out carefully. I tell my patients that hair transplants are not the silver bullet in treating androgenetic alopecia (which is a hair loss aging process).

How to Avoid Risky Hair Procedures

Posted by:

Most botched hair transplants can be corrected by an expertly trained hair transplant surgeon.  A properly trained doctor is someone that not only learned the medical mechanics and artistry of a hair transplant in their residency or fellowship but applies this knowledge himself/herself and does not delegate the surgery to unlicensed technicians.

What should patients look for before choosing a hair transplant surgeon?

Tips for Thicker Hair

Posted by:

Hair loss sufferers spend more than a billion of dollars a year trying to treat their hair loss. Unfortunately, 99% of all products being marketed in the unethical hair loss treatment industry are completely ineffective for the majority of people who use them.
