Hair Restoration's Cutting Edge

Share Article

One surgeon's solution for a single scar after multiple hair transplantation procedures.

In an article published in the June 2004 issue of Dermatologic Surgery, Pittsburgh-based Dominic A. Brandy, MD, describes a set of hair restoration techniques that leave hair transplant patients with a single, thin, aesthetically pleasing scar -- even after multiple transplant procedures.

Dr. Brandy is a foremost expert on single-scar hair restoration techniques and the inventor of a triple-blade instrument designed exclusively for single-scar hair transplant methods. The medical papers describing these methods date back to the 1970s, but only about a half of hair restoration surgeons practice them today. Many patients come to Dr. Brandy from highly reputable surgeons who have left them with thick or multiple scars on the backs of their heads.

Dr. Brandy asks himself, "Why don't more than half of all hair transplant surgeons use a single-scar technique?" In his article, Dr. Brandy offers instruction on how other surgeons can get excellent results for their patients. He gives details on the intricate set of procedures, which require time, planning, experience, and adequate knowledge of scalp anatomy.

Dominic Brandy, MD, is a board-certified cosmetic surgeon with 25 years of experience performing nearly 15,000 aesthetic procedures. Dr. Brandy is a clinical instructor of dermatology at the University Of Pittsburgh School Of Medicine. He serves as medical director of Dominic A. Brandy, MD & Associates, one of the world's leading medical practices specializing in hair loss evaluation and treatment, with locations in Pittsburgh, Columbus, and Washington, D.C.
