Why Same Photos on Bernstein Medical Website and NewHair.com?

Q: I was looking at the hair transplant photos on the Bernstein Medical website. I noticed that you and the NHI website have some of the same pictures. Did you both perform surgeries on these people? — B.B., Columbus Circle, N.Y.

A: All of the patients that appear on the Bernstein Medical website were operated on by me personally. My own staff assisted me in these procedures.

I worked with Dr. Rassman at NHI from 1995 to 2004. Photos of patients that I operated on during this period may therefore also appear on the NHI website.

When Can I Judge the Effectiveness of Treatment with Propecia?

Q: I was wondering why you chose two years as the amount of time one should wait to judge the effectiveness of Propecia. Have you had patients who only saw results after that long? Why does Merck say 3-6 months and Dr. Rassman at New Hair say 6-8 months? I know these numbers aren’t arbitrary, but I’m just wondering what the logic is behind this and how does this relate to planning a hair transplant? — I.P., Hempstead, Long Island, NY

A: The Merck data showed that over 90% of patients had peak response at 1 year and this has been my experience as well.

Most patients show the most dramatic response between 6 to 12 months with some getting additional benefit up to two years. Prior to 6 months, the results are quite variable and there may even be a net loss due to shedding during this period, as the Propecia stimulates a new anagen cycle…

Dr. Bernstein Discusses Hair Transplant Repair In Discovery Channel Interview

The Discovery Channel interviewed Dr. Bernstein for a piece on hair transplant repair. Below is an excerpt from the interview:

Dr. Bernstein: When I first saw Ken in 1995. He still had the traditional plugs, and I would say on a scale of one to ten, he was maybe a seven, with ten being the worst. We performed a procedure called follicular unit transplantation where hair is transplanted in exactly the way it grows in nature, which are little tiny groups of one to four hairs.

Ken Gold: After the first surgery I was just ecstatic because I was actually able to look at myself in the mirror.

Watch the full interview.

Hair Transplant Surgeon of the Month Award to Dr. Bernstein

Dr. Robert M. BernsteinDr. Bernstein receives the Surgeon of the Month award given by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery. Dr. Bernstein introduced the concept of “follicular transplantation” in 1995 through a publication in the International Journal of Aesthetic and Restorative Surgery, where he recommended that in all hair transplant procedures the implants should consist of only the naturally occurring follicular units. The anatomic follicular units, seen clinically as the patient’s natural hair groupings, are different for each individual, and these differences should be reflected in the transplant plan. He has been a strong advocate of using follicular transplantation for the best possible cosmetic result, and has encouraged his colleagues to use this approach in his writings and lectures.
