Dr. Bernstein Encourages GQ Readers to ‘Grow Your Own’ Hair

June 1st, 2005

Dr. Bernstein was featured in an article in GQ Magazine on hair transplantation. The article, written by Peter Rubin is entitled, “Grow Your Own.”

Here is a brief synopsis of the article:

GQ: After fifty years of bad plug jobs, we’ve come to regard “hair restoration” as synonymous with “Astroturf head.” Today’s hair transplant procedures are worlds away from the butcherings of old. So forget what you thought you knew.

Two methods of hair restoration are in wide usage: mini-micrografting and follicular unit transplantation. The methods are similar, to an extent, but FUT; co-developed by New York hair transplant surgeon, Robert M. Bernstein, M.D.; is the more advanced of the two procedures, producing cosmetically superior results.

Dr. Bernstein: Anatomically, follicular unit transplantation is the end of the line. The next step would be hair cloning, which is still quite a way off. The way you get the most amount of hair into the smallest wound — and ensure that it’s going to look natural — is by using a follicular unit transplant. We can create swirls, add sideburns… The beauty of follicular transplantation is that the hair will take on the old wave that the original hair had.

GQ: The best part is that FUT regularly achieves an extraordinarily high success rate, meaning nearly every single transplanted graft takes root and grows properly – unheard of fifteen years ago.

Pierce Mattie, a 28-year-old publicist in New York City, had an FUT procedure in May and couldn’t be happier. “I’ve had dental fillings that were more painful,” he says. “I was back in the office two days later, and my hair looks like it did when I was in high school. Everyone keeps saying, ‘You look so great!’—but they have no idea what I had done.”

About GQ Magazine: For nearly half a century, with 854,000 subscribers and 4 million readers, GQ has been a leading voice in men’s magazines, covering men’s style and culture from fashion and politics to travel, entertainment, sports, technology and relationships.
