CBS News’ The Early Show has picked up the “balding buzz” that first started to grow when the National Enquirer reported that New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady is seeking advice on how to treat his hair loss.
Like the New York Daily News did recently, CBS turned to Dr. Bernstein for his expert medical opinion on Brady’s hair loss.
The Early Show website features the story. Here is a snippet:
Dr. Robert M. Bernstein, clinical professor of Dermatology at Columbia University, told CBS News, “It looks like Tom Brady is starting to comb his hair forward and he has some recession in his temples, so those are kinds of signs that he starting to lose his hair.”
And if Tom Brady is in fact “folically challenged,” he has plenty of company. By middle age, “Early Show” co-anchor Erica Hill reported, about 50 percent of men experience hair loss. And there are plenty of receding hair lines in Hollywood to comb through for advice. John Travolta is rumored to wear a hair piece, while Bruce Willis and tennis great Andre Agassi fully embrace their losses with clean-shaven heads. But for younger guys, like Prince William – only 28 and thinning – a bald head might not be the best bet.
Brady’s hair loss likely stems from androgenetic alopecia, or genetically inherited male pattern baldness.
If you are also “folically challenged,” then you are in good company. Check out some before and after hair transplant photos of patients at Bernstein Medical – Center for Hair Restoration or before and after hair restoration photos of our patients who are treating their hair loss exclusively with Propecia and/or Rogaine hair loss medications.
