In November of 2009, Greg Benson's hair transplant made history. First, by becoming the most widely-viewed LIVE hair transplant surgery webcast in history, and also because the procedure entailed the transplantation of over 3300 FUE-type follicular-unit grafts using the NeoGraft FUE device--the largest procedure performed with the most-advanced minimally-invasive device on record. During the procedure, Benson 'tweeted' status updates during his procedure and SKYPE'd with consumer hair loss advocate, Spencer Kobren (TheBaldTruth).
Before his procedure, Greg vlogged about his hair loss and 'Going Bald' with his YouTube fans and why he was going to have the procedure. Afterwards, he made a light-hearted video of his procedure called "Hair Transplant FUN!?" and also filmed a three-part interview with Dr. Alan Bauman:
Last week, he posted a video update "How's Your Hair!?" about his hair transplant progress so far (which is about 75% of the final cosmetic result).
In accordance with the initial treatment plan which called for approximately two procedures, this week (August 27, 2010) Greg visited Dr. Alan Bauman in Boca Raton, FL for some additional density in the frontal area using the NeoGraft/FUE. Currently at nine months post-op from his initial procedure, Greg is seen here in these photos of his NeoGraft hair transplant results with approximately 75% of the visible results from the initial session.
Greg's most recent YouTube "Happy Surgery Day!" video details his experience with his second hair transplant procedure w/ Dr. Bauman.
Stay tuned for more information and be sure to tune in tonight to The Bald Truth with Spencer Kobren who will be interviewing Greg Benson and Dr. Alan Bauman live on the air tonight (Sunday 8/29) at 8E/5P.
