The Lateral, Anterior Point in Hair Transplantation

The lateral, anterior point in hairline design When we discussed the bell shaped design of the hairline, we talked about a point known as the “lateral, anterior point”.  This point is relatively aligned with the mid-pupil and it represents where the shape of the hairline goes from convex toward the midline and concave toward the […]

Shoreline Understanding of a Hairline in Hair Restoration

Shoreline model for understanding natural hairlines in hair restoration I really like using the idea of a shoreline to educate my students and my patients on the proper design of a hairline.  A shoreline from a great distance looks relatively straight but the closer you get to the shoreline, the more jagged and imperfect the […]

The Concept of the Lowest Acceptable Point for Hairline Design

How to determine the lowest acceptable point for the hairline (from Hair Transplant 360, Lam SM, Jaypee Brothers, 2011) When designing a hairline that are many ways to create one.  In almost all cases, my hair-transplant colleagues and I start with the most fundamentally important point that defines and sets the remainder of the hairline, […]

Thinking of Visual Walls When Building Up the Frontal Region of the Scalp

Artistically designed hair transplant to create optimal visual hair density The goal of hair restoration is to build up enough hair density that one does not have much see-through effect.  Put another way, rows upon rows of hair grafts must be placed so that each row adds to the visual effect of blocking one’s view […]

Understanding Transitions of the Scalp and Why They are Important

Gradual Transitions Shown in Recipient Sites for the Crown When I design recipient sites for hair restoration I am always cognizant that each site must blend naturally to the adjacent sites for several reasons.  First, hair naturally slowly transitions in angle from one area to another.  In a natural untransplanted scalp no hair angles abruptly […]

Phase 1 Training for Hair-Transplant Assistants

Phase 1 Hair Transplant Assistant Training (from Dr. Lam's book, Hair Transplant 360) One thing that I am very proud of is that my team at the Lam Institute for Hair Restoration has developed training of assistants worldwide.  We do this through our textbook, Hair Transplant 360, volume 2, which is the first ever book […]

Hair Transplant Testimonial (Update)

Hair Transplant Testimonial (Update) I just posted this hair transplant testimony of a gentleman who was also kind enough to do a video recovery journal several months ago. I am posting his results so far (as growth should continue to occur over the next few months), his video testimonial, and his original video recovery diary. […]

Hair Replacement vs. Hair Restoration

By Emina Karamanovski If you are losing hair and wondering what would be the best option for you, there are two approaches that can help you have hair back on your head. One option is non-surgical and the other is surgical.  Hair replacement, the non-surgical option, attaches artificial or natural hair to the bald scalp. […]
