New Slideshow of South FL Celeb Radio DJ Greek NeoGraft FUE Hair Transplant Results

West Palm Beach, Florid---He’s got swag, he’s got style, and according to the promo material on Clear Channel’s website for the radio show he front’s, Real Radio’s 94.3 “The Penthouse,” he “party’s like a rock star on south beach and Manhattan.” 

He goes by “Greek” and his dedicated base of South Florida radio fans follow him daily from 10 AM to 2 PM, where Greek breaks down the “worlds of entertainment and sports and teaches you how to date and even keep a Las Vegas show girl.” And while he definitely runs in celebrity circles and can be seen courtside from Miami to New York and Las Vegas laying down the “odds” during his Saturday radio show, “The Locker Room” what Greek’s missing in his fast-paced, high profile, livin’-large-lifestyle was just one thing, a full head of hair.

But all that changed after Greek hit Dr. Bauman’s surgical operatory where he received over 3,000 individually placed hair grafts (approximately 7,500 hair follicles) in October 2012 from Dr. Bauman who is recognized as one of the world’s top medical experts on hair loss. “This is the most sophisticated procedure being performed by one of the world’s best hair transplant doctors, Dr. Bauman is the only guy I’d let do anything like this on me,” says Greek, whose been one of South Florida’ leading radio personalities for 12 years. Kevin Rolston of the “KVJ” Radio Show Went First, now it’s Greeks Turn Dr. Bauman performed a hair transplant procedure on one of Greek’s radio colleagues, Kevin Rolston, an on air-personality on one of Clear Channel’s sister station’s, WILD 95.5. Rolston, the ring-leader of the “Kevin, Jason, Virginia” morning show.

In July 2012, Rolston met Dr. Bauman in his Boca Raton based operatory where his hair transplant procedure was broadcast live via the internet to a global audience of nearly 75,000 people in 22 countries and was simultaneously streamed on the radio station’s website for Kevin’s fans to watch. The surgery and its internet success was such a sensation the Sun Sentinel featured it as a full page story. Rolston also made national headlines in the radio industry as the first radio personality to get a hair transplant procedure live on the air. “I followed Kevins’ procedure very closely,” says Greek. “I know Kevin had been talking about getting a hair transplant for 13 years, and then he finally went and did it.”

Greek, known as a great odds maker and one of the nation’s best-known college football handicappers thought he’d hedge his own bet as well as his anxieties about any such procedure watching Rolston go through the process. “Kevin raved about Dr. Bauman,” says Greek, “he said it was painless and he was back at work on air the very next day, to me that is a great endorsement and that’s why I decided to do it.” "Right now, not a day goes by where I don't get stopped by someone asking me, 'What's different...?' The results are more than I expected, truly natural looking and full," says Greek, almost a year after his transplant procedure. "And the best part, I can wear my hair short, because with Dr. Bauman's NeoGraft FUE procedure, there's no scar to hide."

New Technique Holds Promise for Hair Growth - NYTimes.com

Researchers said the procedure, tested in mice, would not just relocate hair, as in a transplant, but would increase its amount.

So far, the technique has been tested only in mice, but it has managed to grow hairs on human skin grafted onto the animals. If the research pans out, the scientists say, it could produce a treatment for hair loss that would be more effective and useful to more people than current remedies like drugs or hair transplants.

Present methods are not much help to women, but a treatment based on the new technique could be, the researchers reported Monday in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

At Bauman Medical Group, we are keeping a close eye on this technology for hair loss. Unfortunately, the hairs grown in the lab (on mice) from this technology were very small and certainly would not be cosmetically significant for a human patient. However, small steps forward in this process may eventually yield a non-surgical cure for baldness. For the time being, however, modern transplantation techniques--when done artistically and less invasively (NeoGraft FUE)--can be used to undetectably redistribute permanent hair follicles with little pain or downtime. --Dr. Alan Bauman
