GQ Turns to Dr. Bernstein for Explanation of Old “Pluggy” Hair Transplant Method

October 19th, 2010

GQ - November 2010GQ Magazine includes a quotation by Dr. Bernstein in their November 2010 issue. In the magazine’s “Manual” section, which outlines the latest style trends for men, there is a two-page article on hair transplant surgery. Dr. Bernstein’s help was recruited in discussing old hair transplant techniques where multiple follicular units were transplanted in “plugs.”

“In the old days, up until the early ’90s, they used to transplant multiple follicular units at once,” says Robert Bernstein, M.D., clinical professor of dermatology at Columbia University, “so what you got were those plugs, which look completely unnatural and gave the surgery a bad reputation.”

The article’s main protagonist is 27 year-old New Yorker, and hair transplant patient, Jordan Blackmore, but it also drops a few celebrity hair transplant names (Marc Jacobs, Ted Danson, Kevin Costner, and Matthew McConaughey). To read the article you’ll have to find the November 2010 issue at your local newsstand.
