That is the question that motivates Dr. Brett Bolton, a hair transplant surgeon in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Today’s ‘gold standard’ of hair transplantation is not high enough for Dr. Bolton who has specialized in hair restoration since 1997. In the late 90’s he was fortunate enough to enter the field of hair transplant surgery during a transitional time when technology was being shaped. Outdated techniques like the large chunky hair plugs, punch grafts and flap surgeries Bloomington Indiana were on their way out and the defining new technique of follicular unit transplantation (FUT) was just cresting the horizon. Dr. Bolton’s vantage point at that time could not have been any better. He learned from the mistakes of other hair doctors as he repaired bad transplants, and he also gleaned valuable techniques from talented surgeons like the late Dr. Constantine Chambers who did wonders with old technology, especially in the crown area.
With FUT, doctors transplant small slit grafts which contain only one hair bundle. These grafts are harvested from a single strip of donor tissue and separated under a microscope. They contain a naturally occurring bundle of 1-4 hairs. The result is very natural-looking but Dr. Bolton would argue that there is not enough hair density to give patients a satisfying outcome with 1-4 hair grafts only.
In the early 2000’s, it became exceptionable for doctors to perform surgeries using anything other than FUT. However, Dr. Bolton had already developed a method of transplantation using a mixture of graft sizes that far outperformed the standard follicular unit transplantation. He was not willing to cast off a technique that was proving to be extremely successful in his practice despite pressure from peers. Instead, he refined and developed this approach and proudly applies Multi-Unit Hair Grafting , which he co-developed at PAI Medical Group in Nashville, Tennessee. By using a combination of micrografts (single hair grafts), follicular units and multiple follicular unit grafts, which is a slit graft containing 2 to 3 follicular units, Dr. Bolton gives patients 2-3 times the density compared to other doctors who use FUT only.
Some of Dr. Bolton’s peers suggest in error that multi-unit grafts are old style hair plugs. These new style slit grafts are slightly larger than standard follicular units. Separated under a microscope just like follicular units, these multi-unit grafts are not harvested with a punch biopsy instrument. This insures hardiness of the delicate hair follicles and surrounding tissue. They are never used in the frontal hairline and are strategically placed throughout the vertex and crown to make the most of density. This style of transplantation is so unique, Dr. Bolton cannot even charge by the graft because it simply doesn’t translate. Instead, he charges by hair volume. When compared to competitors, hair for hair, Dr. Bolton’s surgery is the best value in the industry.

My Shih Tzu Has A Skin Allergy Which Is Red And Patchy Hair Loss On His Chest?
It Is Clearing Up And The Hair Is Growing Back But, It Has Turned Into Flaky Crusty Icky Skin Just Flaking Off...Is This A Cycle Of It Healing? Anyone Familiar With This?
My dog has skin alllergies as well. She gets red patches and usually hers crust over. She hardly has any hair on her chest and a few places on her sides. The vet gave us some sort of topical spray to put on her and if it gets so bad she has to go to the vet and get a shot.
How To Stop Hair Loss?
How To Stop Hair Loss
Don't wear ball caps. After I moved back to Indiana, I was puzzled that so many men here had the proverbial "bald spot" or were completely bald altogether!
Then I realized that wearing a ball cap in the hot sun all day literally FRIES your scalp and kills your hair follicles! They just sit there under your hat and boil like eggs in boiling water. So ditch the ball caps.
I know that because for a while after I moved back, I wore one in the sun and started getting thin in the same place. Once I stopped wearing a ball cap, my hair returned to growing as usual.
Stop "scrubbing" your scalp when you shampoo. I mean really, do you dip your head in engine oil and remove bolts from an engine manifold with it? There is SO not a need to attack your tender scalp with your fingernails when all you are really doing is washing dead cells that your body rids itself of in the form of "hair".
When you use anything but a gentle washing using your fingertips only as you shampoo, you are actually tearing your scalp with minute little scrapes and your skin will heal those over yes. But in doing so, your skin over your damaged follicles will heal with tougher skin to protect itself thereby sealing off your method of expelling hair!
Stop ripping your hair out by the roots with a stiff comb or brush! Try to adapt a haircut that is suitable to your hair texture so that you can look good but with the least amount of fuss. The more you weave it, color it, comb it, brush it, bleach it and generally MESS with your scalp, the higher risk you have to just plain losing your hair as a consequence.
Don't shampoo every day. Stop that nonsense. Get in the shower, rinse your hair out with clean water but try not to shampoo more than three days a week. Nutritionists will tell you, overwhelmingly, that the absolute, bar none, unequaled conditioner you can use on your hair is your own skins oils. Spend 60 bucks on some fancy name brand or save the 60 bucks by letting your body work like it was meant to.
Throw that blow dryer in the freakin' trash and don't give it a second thought! Now why in the world would anyone intentionally "BAKE" their scalp using a blow dryer? You'd might as well stick your head in a convection oven.......see my comments on ball caps above.
Just being helpful but check it out.....

How Much Does Hairloss Surgery Cost?
I Am 23 And Have All My Hair, But I Can Feel The Hair On The Back Of My Head Getting Thinner More And More. I Want To Know How To Prevent This And How Much It Would Cost To Replace Any Thinning Hair Early. The Rest Of My Hair Feels Fine And Is Very Thick. I Am Also Taking Biotin Supplement Every Day. Thank You 🙂
The cost of a hair transplantation depends on the amount of hair restoration a person desires. For example, some people might have a small bald spot that they'd like to cover, which may only take about a dozen hair grafts, while others may have a significant amount of hair loss, which may take hundreds of hair grafts to restore. On average, each hair graft costs about $5 to $6. This inevitably adds up based on how many hair grafts are needed per person, which can only be determined by a doctor during a consultation. A typical hair transplant can vary in price between $3,000 to $10,000 with the majority of patients needed about one to three sessions to fully restore all hair loss.
What Is The Possibility Of Losing The Transplanted Hair After Hair Transplantation?
What Is The Possibility Of Losing The Newly Transplanted Hair After One Undergoes Hair Transplantation?
Please Help And Answer In Details...Thanx
You don't lose newly transplanted hair after a hair transplant. Assuming you're a male - the hair follicles that they transplant will come from the back and sides of your scalp (areas on the male scalp which are immune to male pattern baldness). Once the hairs are in place in their new location, they are there for life.
That being said, you do have to take precautions (which your doctor will outline for you) after the procedure. You can't just jump in the shower right after surgery and give your hair a vigorous wash or it would lead to the newly transplanted follicles getting damaged or popping out. There is a 10-14 day healing process where you have to be fairly careful. Again, these details will be outlined by your doctor. After the healing process, the follicles are safely in place and no special care is needed.
Thin And Damaged Hair Solutions (10 Points For Best Answer!)?
- Extremely, Extremely Thin Hair
- Damaged From Years Of Coloring And Bleaching 🙁
How Can I:
- Moisturize And Mend
- Make Healthy
- Thicken And Volumize
- Grow It (I Know A Lot Of People Say I Should Cut It, But I Really Want To Grow My Hair Out - It Grows Extremely Slowly, How Can I Speed It Up?)
As far as growing hair out, I myself grew mine to donate to locks of love. I talked to hair dressers, girls I know with really nice hair and a couple of gay guys for tips. There were a lot of things that I tried, because despite my best efforts, my hair started to become a mess of twine fibers.
The first thing I do when planning on growing my hair out is find out what kind of condition its in. I go to a hairdresser and ask them to cut off all the dead hair. Dead is of course a relative term, considering hair is nothing but keratin, that is, non-living proteins, but of course it literally means hair that is ruined and past the point of fixing. The first time I did this, I was worried they were going to chop off all my hair and make me start all over, but they only do that as a last resort. What they will just do is go and remove all the split ends, dry hair and then layer it so it still looks nice. Your hair might end up shorter for a little bit, but its worth it.
The first time I had a hairdresser tell me I needed a trim to help my hair grow faster, I laughed at her. after some research on my own, I learned that hair actually frays at the ends and you loose length because of it. So getting a regular trim removes those frays before they go too far into the hair. From what I understand, dry, dead hair can split pretty much all the way down to the scalp in the worst cases. And it looks unkempt. So yeah, get a trim. You will be glad you did.
As far as shampoo, I use Garnier Fructis (I think I got the spelling right). Its great stuff and it smells good while using it. That makes my hair softer than normal V05 does, though that works too. Instead of using the shampoo, rinsing, conditioning and then rinsing again, I just shampoo in the shower, then take the conditioner and work it into my hair, then comb out the excess. Let it sit all day and then rinse it out that night. Only shampoo your hair once every other day at most, and rinse it in the in between days.
One last thing, and this is my secret weapon! There is a such thing as hair cholesterol. It sounds gross, but trust me on this. It is oil that has been fortified with cholesterol, and it actually smells really good. you can usually get it for fairly cheap. I have included a link to the stuff I use. The stuff takes about half an hour to use, though for really dry hair, it would not be an atrocity to double the time its in your hair from what the instructions say. After a couple of treatments, anything but the dead hair will come out looking and feeling great. In fact, using this stuff, I got my hair to about as soft as an average house cat.
So good luck. Give the above a shot and I am sure you will have at least some results.
And that's the best advice I can give.

Male Baldness And Genes Etc?
What Speeds Up Baldness?
Like My Mum Said Apart From Diet U Can'T Do Anything To Prevent Baldness, U Will Go Bald Depending On Your Genes, For Example, My Mum Said Stress Can Make Your Hair Fall Out But It Cnt Make U Go Bald Because The Hair Growsback, I'M Nottalking About Apolecia Btw, Like My Dad Is 42 But Isfull Of Hair On His Head, Because Of His Genes. To Sum It Up My Mum Basically Said You Can Only Go Bald Based On Genes Etc :), Thank U, Sorry If I Didn'T Make Sense. 😛
Male pattern baldness is a genetic treat passed down through generations and its luck of the draw im afraid, nothing speeds it up it just happens when its ready, both my brother and i started going bald in our 20's even though my dad who is 60 is just going bald now ( the f***er lol) because we got the gene from our maternal grandfather, who was bald at the same age, also male pattern baldness is associated with high testosterone levels
the best way to judge if you will go bald is not just to look at your father but look at both your grandfathers and ask about their fathers, but even if you do go bald its not that bad if you shave your head because ive found that the ladies are quite keen on my big bald shiney napper :o)
Are There Any New Treatments For Alopecia Areata Or Alopecia Universalis-Eyebrow And Head Hair Loss?
I don’t know if there are any new hair loss treatments but there are existing alopecia treatments that you may not know about. Consider checking out a website that reviews hair loss treatments for people with thinning hair. Any good comparison site will offer info about thegoods needed to treat hair loss.
Laser Comb For Hair Regrowth, Does It Really Work?
It Looks Like A Big Scam And Hoax To Me. Anyone With Experience Using It For A While Please Enlighten Me.
I have not seen a shred of evidence that this works. There was even a TV program about many hair growth products that demonstrated how most of them do not work. Hair loss is natural and only surgery is a relatively sure bet.
