Hair Transplant 360 for Physicians (Volume 1)

by Samuel M Lam

Hair transplantation is a type of surgery to solve the problem of baldness permanently by moving hair follicles from a part of the body to bald part of the body. This book “Hair Transplant 360” serves to bridge that divide as thoroughly as possible by providing a 360-degree perspective on how to perform superior hair-transplant surgery from the alpha to the omega for physician. This book is divided into five chapters. First chapter focuses on the medical side of hair restoration, including the basic points of anatomy and physiology, processes of hair loss, diseases that preclude hair restoration surgery, along with practical topics like consultation, marketing, and preoperative planning that every physician should know before beginning to operate. It also include side effects with finasteride, use of low-level laser therapy (LLLT), new medical protocols for women, etc. The heart of this book really is second chapter, the operative chapter, which has been extensively revised. Beyond the introduction of bioenhancement methodology, new topics are added to encompass subtle but profound evolutionary changes in techniques, which would be too numerous to cite herein. Along with these many changes in techniques, this chapter also revised the pertinent videos to help the surgeon study the methodology in a way that can be conveyed in a written text alone. Third chapter discusses the postoperative course following a hair transplant and the care instructions that need to be communicated to every patient. Fourth chapter presents new case studies that are updated and reflect change in operative technique. Fifth chapter focuses on helping the reader practice hairline design using stepwise instruction and recipient-site creation on melons to improve one’s skills. This book offers extensive illustrations, photographs, and videos that have been designed and developed for optimal educational value lavishly support the text.
