Treatment of hair disorders has progressed considerably over time. More patients are now interested in hair care and some are bombarded by promising advertisements. In reality, hair disorders may be complex and require accurate diagnosis for suitable treatment. Hair Loss and Restoration provides an extensive look at the practical management, both medical and surgical, of all forms of hair loss. Proper examination of the patient with hair loss is discussed in depth as is androgenetic alopecia, the most common cause of hair loss. The autoimmune disease alopecia areata is examined comprehensively, including its pathogenesis, clinical features, differential diagnosis, and treatment. This edition also covers new developments on the diagnosis and treatment of the disease. Hair loss from drugs and radiation is reviewed along with other topics such as telogen effluvium and frontal fibrosing alopecia—an increasing concern in scarring hair loss. Hair restoration surgery is described in detail and an excellent review of what is available from a nonmedical approach to hair loss is provided. Extensively referenced and illustrated with more than 300 clinical color photographs, this compact and easy-to-read book is a valuable resource for both doctors and patients.
While every facial plastic surgeon is trained in hair restoration, unless one does it frequently in practice, there are techniques, tips, and approaches to be learned from experts in this field who focus solely on hair transplantation and restoration. Techniques, Complications, Medical Treatment, and Medical Diagnosis are covered for Donor Harvesting and Management of the Donor Site; Hairline Design and Frontal Hairline Restoration; Management of Advanced Hair Loss Patterns; Repair of the Unsuccessful Hair Restoration; Tissue Expansion for Scalp Reconstruction; Imposters of Andogenetic Alopecia: Diagnostic Pearls for the Hair Restoration Surgeon; and more. This clinically focused information is intended for the facial plastic surgeon whose practice is not a majority of hair restoration and for surgeons who might want to grow their hair practice. Editors Raymond Konior and Steven Gabel lead this review in Facial Plastic Surgery Clinics. When asked why hair transplantation and restoration is of compelling interest, Dr Konior explains that he decided to limit his practice solely to hair restoration because it is a life altering procedure for patients: “People cannot believe the outcome - they come to me post-restoration and are so happy with their new appearance, telling me how much their lives are changed. Whether for job or career or personal reasons, this procedure has a positive outcome for them.
