This was an amazing event, and it was truly exciting to see the level of interest from online viewers about the hair transplant process
Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) August 22, 2009
Over 50 million American men suffer from hair loss. With that in mind, Dr. Alan Bauman recently partnered with YouTube star, Former Propecia Marketing Director and male pattern hair loss sufferer, Kevin Nalty (a.k.a. "Nalts") to raise awareness about hair loss with a live vlogging event - in the middle of Nalts's hair restoration surgery.
The live event on August 17th, promoted in advance by Nalts through social media sites like YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, drew 3358 online viewers via Stickam and BlogTV. By the time Nalts stepped into the O.R., his video called 'Hair Transplant' had over 30,000 views in less than one week. The online participants posted hundreds of questions, which Nalts and Bauman responded to throughout the hair transplant surgery. During the online chat, Nalts encouraged more celebrities to step forward and 'come out of the closet' regarding their hair loss and treatments they've had--and one in fact did!
"This was an amazing event, and it was truly exciting to see the level of interest from online viewers about the hair transplant process," said Dr. Bauman, a board-certified hair restoration surgeon. "But there's still so much misinformation out there among consumers, despite the best efforts by hair loss industry groups like the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, the American Hair Loss Association, and consumer advocates, like Spencer Kobren."
"We are breaking down great barriers here," added Nalts. "Removing the stigma associated with treating your hair loss and the myths that hair transplants are painful, 'pluggy,' or somehow not effective... this is a tough, uphill, but worthwhile, battle. I'm here to say 'I did something about my hair loss, and you can too!'"
Nalts underwent a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant using the NeoGraft™ device. Dr. Bauman and his team artistically transplanted over 1,950 grafts. This new machine-assisted minimally-invasive hair transplant procedure allows both men and women to permanently and undetectably restore lost hair with less recovery time and less discomfort than traditional procedures. The NeoGraft™ device allows surgeons to efficiently harvest follicles individually from the back of the scalp, leaving no linear scar and also includes a gentle, air-powered piston implantation handpiece.
Dr. Bauman and Nalts have been asked to appear on Spencer Kobren's "The Bald Truth" radio show (http://www.thebaldtruth.com) on Sunday, August 23rd, from 8:00 - 10:00 p.m. EST to answer listener's questions regarding Nalts' hair transplant. Previously on satellite radio, the show typically garners 10,000 to 20,000 viewers each Sunday night and has had well over one-million live views.
