I give the patient a surgical sponge that has no soap in it. The patient then wets his recipient area with softly running water. Any good shampoo is use with the sponge so that it fills with shampoo. Then with a rolling motion (not rubbing) the soap from inside the sponge squirts on the grafts […]
When you say pencil size from the 1980w, you mean the shaft of a pencil? Presumably this little bit of tissue had several follicles? When I heard the term in the past I thought they were little wigs you wore in the receded area! A hollow drill was used in the back of the head […]
Before one gets a hair transplant you have to: 1-be balding 2- be over the age of 26 so that your hair loss pattern is defined 3- be prepared financially for more hair loss and more hair transplants 4- failed on conservative treatments like minoxidil and/or finasteride 5- My saying is: A good decision today […]
It appears that you have ‘crater’ scars with your FUE. I don’t believe that I ever saw this type of scar so I wonder what instrument your doctor used to get the FUE done. Can you find that out and let us know?
I’m just wondering something. I’m in my early 30s now and always dreaming of a hair transplant. Maybe the older guys know an answer to this question: do you think (good) hair transplants will get more affordable and better in the future? I know that in the past it was mostly FUT so I think […]
the longer you take fin the more chances side effects increases. Going off fin despite length of time (ie 2 months vs 2 years or vice versa) can lead to hormone crash. Fin makes your hairloss worse years after stating treatment Would love to know as these three kinda scare me. If it’s a fact […]
I have worked with Dr. Bernstein and he is one of the smartest people in this industry. I think that if you spend the time to listen to this podcast, you will be smarter for the time invested.

I m 30 years old male with a complete Class 6 pattern of balding and I have had two FUE transplants with little to show for it. I want to try Propecia to revive the dead hair making i alive again. is that possible? The drug finasteride does not bring back the dead hairs that you used […]
I had hair transplant in 8 months ago.I noticed the new hair growing in the opposite direction compared to the original very early in the growth of the new grafts. The density is also a problem. People can tell something wrong with my hair. I tired style this with gels but I got tired of it & […]
Finasteride, like all medications, can produce an allergic reaction. If you stop it, it should go away and if you restart it, it will probably reappear.
I figured I would offer my opinion here since the reader asked for a reply from somebody who had a similar experience and the response doesn’t really answer the question. I used Propecia about a decade ago and developed general sexual dysfunction (not just ED) that continues to this day. Unfortunately nobody can provide you […]
Dr. Rassman’s Comments: The following article appeared in Medscape warning of the potential harmful effects of absorption of toxic chemicals when most sun screens are used. Not the only safe sunscreens are highlighted in RED below. This is critical to protect your children from the toxic chemicals in sunscreens. Every patient in a small, randomized […]
No, what you are seeing is normal thickness ‘terminal’ hairs. The small hairs are vellus hairs and they are normally present in high numbers.
https://www.sixthtone.com/news/1004217/report-exposes-chinas-unlicensed-hair-transplant-industry This is similar to many clinics in Turkey where almost 500 clinics have FUE surgery performed by minimally trained personal. I believe that these people can learn how to do it as they practice more and more on patients, but the problem is what happens when there is a side effect from anesthesia, or […]
