Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) August 23, 2005
CosmeticVacations announced today a partnership with Dr Henrique Radwanski, a plastic surgeon specializing in hair restoration surgery; he is a full member of the Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgery -- http://www.cirurgiaplastica.org.br.
Dr Radwanski is a consultant to the prestigious Ivo Pitanguy Clinic for hair transplantation. As Assistant Professor of the Post-graduate course in Plastic Surgery of the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro, he is active in teaching all aspects of plastic surgery.
Other Memberships include the Brazilian Society of Hair Restoration Surgery and the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery -- http://www.ishrs.org.
Dr Radwanski was recently admitted to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery -- http://www.isaps.org. In addition to Portuguese, Dr. Radwanski is fluent in English, French and Spanish.
"In response to rising demand for hair transplantation surgery we began a search for a highly qualified, experienced surgeon in this particular sub-specialty. Our inquiries led us to Dr. Radwanski," says Peter Ryan, Director and Founder of Cosmetic Vacations. The great advances in hair restoration surgery captured the interest of Dr. Radwanski in the mid-90`s. After visiting different institutions, in Brazil and overseas, he decided to create his own center, in Rio de Janeiro. It is the foremost medical center for hair restoration surgery in the city, where cutting-edge surgical techniques are performed daily by a hand picked team of medical experts, led by Dr Radwanski.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery the hair transplant industry in the U.S. alone is a $US 1 billion industry. "With half of adult males over 40 having some significant balding and a significant number of young men in the balding process, hair transplantation surgery presents a very exciting area for us," commented Ryan.

CosmeticVacations clients are motivated to travel to Brazil for three primary reasons; the quality of the surgery,the low pricing compared to America and Europe and the opportunity to recover in Rio de Janeiro -- one of the world's most magnificent cities.
"Hair restoration fits nicely into our array of services. Especially comforting to clients is the knowledge that the number one procedure, follicular unit transplantation, is a minimally invasive surgery," says Ryan. Patients make what is normally the only post-op visit required to the surgeon the day following surgery. After that the patient is free to return home; in ninety per cent of cases no further follow up is required.
Commenting on recent developments, Ryan highlights the increasing number of inquiries for specialized procedures. "A definite pattern is emerging. We have one particular demographic interested in body contouring, another more concerned with facial procedures. Predictably, demand for hair restoration surgery is greatest amongst middle aged males."
