ABOUT THE PATIENT

The hair plugs from deans previous hair transplant are clearly visibleDean is a 36 year old male who started losing his hair while in his twenties. Trying to prevent his hair loss from impacting his life, he sought out a transplant clinic in 1984 called the Cleveland Hair Clinic. His first session cost him $2500 and seemed to go well. However after 1 year he had further loss so needed more work done. He returned to the Cleveland Hair Clinic in 1985 for another transplant procedure and paid another $2500. At the time doctors were using plugs and the procedure left him with open donor scarring from the way the hairs were harvested. In 1986 after experiencing further loss he had yet another procedure at Bosley in Los Angeles. This procedure cost $3000 and left him with a pluggy looking hairline. In 1989 he gave up and started wearing a hair piece. He had been wearing the hairpiece without a problem ever since but got tired of the daily maintenance needed to keep it looking natural.

So he started doing research on corrective procedures and ultimately decided to go with New Hair Institute in Los Angeles. On October 27th of 2000 he took the first step towards reversing the unnatural results of the previous transplants and to a truly undetectable hair line.

The old style plugs can clearly be seen which create a very unnatural doll hair type hair line. This is common amongst people who had procedures in the 1980s and earlier. Sadly some people still are being operated on by surgeons using this archaic procedure.

He worked six years as the Medical Director of a regional hair transplantation center in Missouri that has a large national patient base, and has been practicing hair transplantation full-time since July, 1988. He has performed approximately 1000 procedures each year since that time.
