What to do after hair transplant?

By Emina Karamanovski Assuming that you chose a great surgeon to do your hair transplant and that you will have naturally looking results, the question is what do you do with the hair that thins from postoperative shedding and what do you do when the new hair starts growing in. Both situations can make you […]

Scarless or A Less Noticeable Procedure

By Emina Karamanovski English is my third language. Learning languages taught me to pay attention to the meaning of words and probably forced me to become more precise in the way I use them. Follicular unit extraction or FUE have been described as a scarless procedure. The word scarless is misleading since cutting skin or […]

What Does Church Have To Do With Hair Transplantation?

By Emina Karamanovski In many years of helping people restore hair, I have seen only a handful of times when the result of hair restoration has touched someone to tears. It is especially rare to see a man tear up from joy.  Two patients and two different life stories but their joy was for the […]

More than Aesthetics: Hair Transplants Can Protect Your Scalp Among Other Things

By Emina Karamanovski The other day an older gentlemen came for a consultation. He wanted to restore hair not because he wanted to look younger nor because he needed to boost his self-esteem but he was simply tired of having to protect his head from sun. He was tired of having to wear a cap […]

The Young Man Losing Hair: An Update on Current Strategies

In a previous video featured on YouTube and on this Web site, I discussed the dangers of performing hair transplants in men who are too young.

I did teach there last year and gave a lecture on recipient-site anesthesia and tumescence. I have been really excited about actually chairing it this year, which gives […]

New Ways to Think of Recipient Sites: Micropunches & Lateral Slits

There is perhaps not a day or maybe week that goes by without my thinking of how to perform more beautiful artwork for the head. Is it all just the same thing? I certainly do not think so. I have worked on constantly refining my thinking of how to create better results. Recipient sites, the […]

Does Adding Acell to PRP Really Matter?

The “magic sauce” that I talked about in my previous blog involved platelet rich plasma (PRP) and Acell. The question though is whether adding Acell, a porcine bladder matrix, does anything? I know many physicians who only use PRP and think Acell is redundant. Having now done several cases with Acell, I would beg to […]

Low Thyroid, Hair Loss and Eyebrow Transplant

Recently I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and personally experienced the horror of hair loss that many women share. One of the symptoms associated with it was hair loss. Beside the fact that my hair was shedding more than usual, it was becoming alarmingly thinner. As I was diagnosed and my thyroid problems treated, my hair […]

The Atlanta Meeting in Hair Restoration 2013

I just got back from running my course in Atlanta on hair restoration that involved a new hands-on component. I look at it as a mini-St. Louis Course, the main course that I run each year that is a very extensive hands-on course. This is my second year running the Atlanta meeting and I am […]
