Published on November 7, 2013 by

Central Forelock and Extended Central Forelock in Hair Restoration The central forelock is one of the most important concepts that exist for hair restoration.  If the central forelock, that lies immediately behind the hairline looks empty, the person will remain looking bald.  Every graft that is situated in the central forelock also blocks light from […]

Privacy and Gender Differences

Published on November 7, 2013 by

By Emina Karamanovski Over the years working with Dr. Lam and observing female and male patients approach aesthetic surgery differently, I also noticed that within hair restoration men and women behave differently. It is socially more acceptable to see a man than a woman losing hair. Therefore, women are more secretive about their hair loss […]

What Does Church Have To Do With Hair Transplantation?

Published on July 24, 2013 by

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 […]

“Doctor, I am Concerned Someone Will Notice My Hair Transplant?”

Published on April 3, 2013 by

I have heard these words many times throughout my hair-transplant consultations, usually leading to the next sentence, “Please make my result as conservative as possible.” That sounds intuitively appealing but it is really not the right answer. I totally understand the issue with one’s fear that a result will be spotted out, especially since hair […]

Published on January 8, 2013 by

Whose Before and Afters are you Really Looking at?

Published on July 23, 2012 by

When you look at a hair-transplant clinic’s before-and-after photographs, what are you really seeing? The number one issue that I have with large clinic chains is the use of pooled photographs that represent the work of surgeons from across the world who work at those Wade Bogg’s Hair Transplant Results clinics past and present. That […]

Designing Hair Patterns for Hair Restoration Based on Usable Donor Hair

Published on July 2, 2012 by

In an ideal world, even the baldest man could have a fulfilling hair transplant and have his entire head covered with hair again. Obviously, this is realistically not always the case. It is a question of supply and demand: supply being how much usable donor hair there is to transplant the area and demand being […]

The Concept of the Extended Central Forelock in Hair Restoration

Published on April 29, 2012 by

The central forelock is one of the most important concepts that exist for hair restoration. If the central forelock, that lies immediately behind the hairline looks empty, the person will remain looking bald. Every graft that is situated in the central forelock also blocks light from the front and the two 45-degree side angles as […]

Temporal Points: What Are They and Who Should Get Them?

Published on March 4, 2012 by

One of the biggest topics that has fascinated hair-transplant surgeons, at least as presented at the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS), is temporal point transplantation. The temporal point is the hair point that emanates forward from the temple that can be reconstructed to frame the face from the side as part of an […]

The Principles of Making Results Seamlessly Natural Results for Hair Transplants Even Close Up

Basic Hairline Shapes Created for Hair Transplant

Published on January 8, 2012 by

Although there are many types of hairlines that can be designed, for the sake of simplicity I try to discuss two basic shapes when I lecture to students at my hair-transplant course in St. Louis every year. They are the bell-shape and the round-shape. The bell shape is a narrower design that changes from a […]

Christian Slaters Hair Transplant

Published on December 5, 2011 by

Hair Transplant is as much an art as it is a science. Many times we simply see very bad hair transplant work that scares us into not wanting to have the procedure done. When the procedure is done well, it is seamless. Take Christian Slater’s hair transplant, which I think is both natural and artistically […]

Steve Van Zandt, The Sopranos, and His Hairpiece

Published on November 19, 2011 by

We all know that we can recognize a bad hairpiece or a bad wig when we see one, right? Yes. However, hair systems today can be quite natural in appearance even to the most experienced eyes. Woven, natural hairpieces can escape the detection of many individuals looking at them like John Travolta’s. However, perhaps one […]

Jude Laws Central Forelock

Published on September 18, 2011 by

Jude Law’s Central Forelock The actor Jude Law has significant hair loss but does not seem that bald in appearance simply because he has a relatively strong retained central forelock. (I believe he has had a hair transplant by the way.) As a reminder, the central forelock is the tuft of hair that sits immediately […]

Jamie Foxx: Designing an African-shaped Hairline

Published on July 29, 2011 by

Jamie Foxx’s hair transplant looks natural and appropriate for his ethnicity. When designing hairlines for a person, it is important to consider that individual’s ethnicity and gender. For African-American hairlines, the shape is oftentimes square even despite ongoing aging. Clearly with hair loss, there is a blunting or loss at the fronto-temporal angles like in […]

The Mirror Effect: Combining 2-D and 3-D Hairlines in Hair Restoration

Published on July 25, 2011 by

One of the original ideas that I have been working on is why and how to use a mirror when designing a hairline. What I am always shocked by is that I will look at a patient and draw in a proposed hairline then look at the hairline with the patient in the mirror to […]

Published on July 14, 2011 by

Published on June 19, 2011 by

As a studious observer of celebrity hair transplants, I remember a couple of years ago looking at Matt Lauer conducting an interview in which his bald crown was exposed. The area known as the posterior lateral hump (side temporal hair) has fallen since his previous hair transplant away from his vertex transition zone (the point […]
