Top Hair Transplant Surgeon, Dr. Alan J. Bauman, Will Be Featured Speaker at the 9th World Congress for Hair Research
Nationally recognized hair loss expert, Alan J. Bauman, M.D., will be a featured faculty member and presenter at the 9th World Congress for Hair Research and meeting of the North American Hair Research Society on November 18-21 at the InterContinental Hotel in Miami.
Dr. Bauman will be presenting his research on “Eyelash Transplantation: Sequelae & Complication Management.” This presentation, which is addressed to fellow hair transplant surgeons, will explain in lecture and poster formats the proper methods for avoiding operative complications with this advanced microsurgical procedure and enhancing patient satisfaction.
Dr. Bauman was an early pioneer of this cutting-edge surgical procedure and led the first International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery Regional Live Surgery Workshop for Eyelash Transplantation in 2006 in Los Angeles.
His high-profile live surgery demonstration was covered by ABC’s Good Morning America, Extra! and Reuters, and Dr. Bauman subsequently appeared in hundreds of media interviews on this cosmetic surgery breakthrough.
“Eyelash transplant demand has increased substantially since the treatment captured the public’s attention and was catapulted into the global limelight a decade ago,”
Dr. Bauman said. “For this reason, it’s important to make sure that treating physicians know the ins and outs of this delicate procedure and the key factors that ensure not only a successful transplant but also a satisfied patient.”
According to Dr. Bauman’s vast experience in performing eyelash transplants since 1999, this also includes providing appropriate postoperative care and eyelash grooming services.
Eyelash transplants are an advanced microsurgical procedure that takes living, growing hair follicles from the scalp and implants them into the upper eyelids.
The procedure can be used to enhance the density and fullness of the eyelashes for purely cosmetic purposes, and it’s also an effective treatment to restore permanent loss of the lashes due to the misuse of eyelash extensions, eyelid trauma, burns, chemotherapy, radiation and trichotillomania.
The newly implanted lashes will continue to grow long, just like the hair on the head and require regular maintenance and trimming.
“Long, thick, luxurious eyelashes have long been a key element of a woman’s beauty since the beginning of recorded history,” Bauman said. “However, most people don’t realize how delicate and fragile natural eyelashes really are. Aging, heredity, false lashes, injuries, illness and obsessive hair pulling can result in permanent weakening or hypotrichosis of the lash follicles or total loss leading to lash baldness.
While certain long-term topical treatments like prostaglandin analogs (bimatoprost/Latisse, Allergan) can help to boost the length of weak lashes, only eyelash transplantation can permanently replace lashes that are dead and gone.”
Hosted by the North American Hair Research Society, The World Congress for Hair Research aims to educate physicians and researchers by sharing information gleaned both at “the bench” and “the bedside” on topics such as hair growth, hair and scalp diseases such as hair loss and alopecias, hair care and others.
The theme for this year’s event is “Reflect, Rejuvenate, and REGENERATE,” and aims to reflect on hair follicle regeneration and rejuvenate minds with new ideas and collaborations.
Research will be presented on a wide range of topics, including hair transplantation, hair follicle multiplication—aka “hair cloning,” stem cells, robotics, PRP, emerging technologies and therapies, genetic hair research, as well as cosmetic hair science.
About Eyelashes and Eyelash Transplants:
- Eyelashes are the primary mechanism by which the eyes are protected from dust motes and debris.
- Eyelashes provide symmetry and beauty to the eye area and face.
- Eyelash transplant procedures can be used to enhance the cosmetic appearance of the eyes or to restore lashes to a damaged eyelid.
- Patients who may benefit from an eyelash transplant are those who have lost their eyelashes through trauma or trichotillomania, as well as those who are looking for an increase in the number or length of their eyelashes.
- In a safe and minimally-invasive same-day procedure, hundreds donor hair follicles are harvested from the back of the scalp and implanted into the eyelid using a modified “sewing insertion” technique.
- Healing is complete and the transplanted eyelashes are shed one week after the procedure with the new lashes beginning to grow in about six weeks.
- The transplanted lashes are permanent, grow long and need to be periodically trimmed and curled routinely.
About Eyelash Transplant Aftercare and Grooming:
Dr. Bauman’s eyelash transplant aftercare and grooming protocols and the Bauman Eyelash Aftercare Kit™ were developed in conjunction with renowned “Lashologist” and licensed Aesthetician, Ellie Malmin, of Anushka Spa in Palm Beach.
The Bauman Eyelash Aftercare Kit™ was premiered at the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery’s 23rd Annual Scientific Meeting this past September in Chicago.
