Top Hair Loss Expert, Dr. Alan J. Bauman, Presented at the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery’s 24th World Hair Transplant Congress
Over 600 of the world’s top hair loss doctors, technicians and researchers gathered in Las Vegas last week for the annual conference which highlighted cutting-edge surgical techniques, medical devices and new treatments in hair restoration.
Boca Raton, Florida – Nationally recognized hair transplant surgeon and hair loss treatment pioneer, Dr. Alan J. Bauman, presented and attended at the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery’s (ISHRS) 24th World Congress, which took place September 28 – October 1 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. The annual event is one of the industry’s premier educational events and is aimed at showcasing the newest breakthroughs in hair restoration, including hair transplant surgery techniques, new instruments and devices.
“The ISHRS always puts on a great event, and this year did not disappoint. It is so exciting to have an opportunity to meet with colleagues from around the world, and share our collective research and experiences,” explained Dr. Bauman. “From an educational standpoint, these gatherings are invaluable to us as physicians, as well as the industry.”
Dr. Bauman’s presentation was focused on the combined use of a medical grade 3D-printed cranial prosthetic along with hair transplantation in a patient with two separate hair loss conditions: traction alopecia and central centrifugal cicatricial alopecia. Dr. Bauman’s patient, “Ivory,” was also in attendance at the Live Patient Viewing portion of the conference to discuss her experience with scarring alopecia and her combined treatments, which included hair transplantation and a custom CRLab CNC hair replacement system made in Bologna, Italy. Hair transplant surgeons from around the world were able to examine Ivory’s hair restoration results first hand.
“Cranial prosthetics and the use of 3D-printing technology are some of the most exciting breakthroughs happening in hair restoration,” explained Dr. Bauman. “These advanced systems have the ability to dramatically improve the quality of life for men and women who are not candidates for transplantation and other medical treatments.” The 3D-printed CNC is a particularly good option for Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia, the most common hair loss condition seen in women of African descent.
“Ivory” echoes Dr. Bauman enthusiasm for the new treatment. “Cicatricial alopecia affected my self-confidence and has been self-limiting for me. I was afraid and ashamed to seek help. Now, my results are great and I feel 100 percent more confident,” she explained. “Dr. Bauman and my new CNC system have given me a new outlook for managing and coping with my hair loss.”
During the conference, at a privately held invitation-only event sponsored by Restoration Robotics, Dr. Bauman was invited to present to a select group of hair transplant surgeons regarding his use of ARTAS, the robotic-assisted hair transplant system in his practice in South Florida.
During the four-day conference, Dr. Bauman also discussed some of the top new treatments for hair loss live on the air with television news reporter Mr. Mike Doria from FOX5 Las Vegas’ morning news. Watch the news segments below:
In this live segment television news report, Mr. Mike Doria from Fox5 Las Vegas visited with renowned hair loss expert and ABHRS-certified Hair Restoration Physician Dr. Alan J. Bauman from Boca Raton, Florida to discuss the latest and greatest methods of hair loss diagnosis, non-invasive treatments and hair transplantation. Hats don’t cause hair loss, but your genetics and hormones do. Hair loss is a chronic and progressive condition that gets worse without treatment, but treatments today are extremely effective.
Early evaluation and treatment will help men and women keep and enhance their own living and growing hair. Diagnostic tools like HairCam a iPhone dermoscopy device and the HairCheck, a Hair Mass Trichometer, are amongst the ways to detect, diagnose and monitor hair loss, hair thinning and hair breakage so treatments can begin before hair loss is noticeable to the naked eye. Once hair loss is noticeable, more than 50% of the hair is already gone. However, modern no-scalpel, no-stitch hair follicle harvesting methods called FUE allow for a minimally invasive hair transplant procedure when performed properly that’s as comfortable as it is undetectable. Combinations of artistry and technology allow a small number of modern board-certified and artistically talented surgeons from across the globe to create natural hair transplant results that are lasting.
One of the latest recent medical breakthroughs in hair restoration is the use of 3D-Printed CNC or Cranial Prosthesis for patients who are not good candidates for hair transplants. Manufactured with FDA-cleared components in Bologna, Italy by Cesare Ragazzi Laboratories, the CNC is classified as a medical device by the Italian Ministry of Health. It’s use is virtually unknown here in the United States but in this live segment television news report, Fox5 Las Vegas reporter Mike Doria was on-hand at the World Hair Transplant Congress with Dr. Alan Bauman to learn more.
In a 240 man-hour process that takes several months to complete, one-hundred percent unprocessed human hair (no coloring or perms) is hand-selected, matched for color, curl and length, then meticulously implanted into the CNC’s flexible, lightweight, antimicrobial polymeric base or “second scalp.” The “second scalp” is customized for each patient using 3D printing technology for a perfect fit. The end result is a beautiful head of hair for alopecia patients, chemotherapy hair loss patients, and those injured in trauma or accidents. Because the prosthesis is attached with a medical-grade FDA-cleared adhesive, it can be enjoyed by patients who are very physically active. Actors, entertainers, dancers, athletes can all enjoy swimming, shampooing, styling their hair once again without fear of detection or detachment. Short monthly service visits are required to keep the hair system and scalp in good condition.
At the ISHRS – International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery World Hair Transplant Congress, Dr. Alan Bauman presented his patient, Ivory, who suffered from a combination of two types of alopecia—Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia (CCCA) and Traction Alopecia (TA). Ivory, a female African-American patient, was treated with a combination of hair transplantation to the frontal and temporal areas and a CNC Cranial Prosthesis in the crown area to achieve a satisfying and beautiful new head of hair. Ivory was also on hand at the Live Patient Viewing portion of the scientific conference, so the international group of physicians could examine the unique treatment combination.
