Is Trumps Hair Real? The Answers From The Experts May Surprise You!

Is it real?  "Real interesting," they say!  Many speculate on its construction and infrastructure and even the experts cannot agree on exactly what Donald may or may not have done to enhance his hair.  One thing is for sure, regardless of your political persuasion, "Trump's Hair" is a frequent topic of conversation both online and off.  It even has it's own Twitter account @TrumpsHair which proclaims "I'm on top of the man who is on top of the world!"

Although Mr. Trump is not a patient of mine, I was asked (along with the famous The Bald Truth radio talkshow host Spencer Kobren) to weigh in on the topic. Personally, I suspect that he may have had an outdated invasive surgical flap procedure and perhaps some transplantation years and years ago, which "locks" him into his current style. Today's minimally-invasive procedures like NeoGraft FUE and ARTAS robotic hair transplantation restore hair growth permanently without linear scars or significant downtime--and modern therapies like PRP, laser therapy, Minoxidil 82M and others help keep the hair you have growing strong. Solving the mystery of Donald's Hair may not be easy... but at least the experts have some opinions. Visit Plastic Surgery Portal below for the complete infographic. Sincerely, Dr. Alan J.

3-D printed hair helps cancer survivors have realistic hair - TODAY.com

It's yet to be seen exactly how 3-D printing will change the world, but the technology is already proving to be an asset in the prosthetics industry — in this case, hair.

Danielle Grillo of Transitions Hair Solutions in New Jersey has made dozens of 3-D printed hairpieces for people who suffer from hair loss, many of them cancer survivors. She's worked in the industry for more than two decades, and says the 3-D printed hairpieces, while expensive, "are the closest thing to your natural scalp and hair," Grillo told TODAY.

Bald truth: hair loss down to genes controlling follicle creation, study finds | Science | The Guardian

Baldness in old age may be related to stem cell loss in follicles, research suggests.

Mammals that have longer lifespans are known to lose their hair, but a study published in the journal Science on Thursday attempts to understand why that is so.

Hair follicle stem cells, which generate the sacs or follicles that produce hair, keep hair growth going over time and have even been shown, in mouse studies, to resist ageing.

This new information about the control of hair follicle stem cells is exciting news. The question remains, however, can these failing stem cells be reactivated in some way through our current medical treatments for hair regrowth like Laser Therapy, Minoxidil Formula 82M or even PRP treatments? And, what role do androgens like DHT and anti-DHT treatments like Finasteride FinPlus or Dutasteride have on the expression of these hair loss genes?
For current effective methods of hair loss treatment, including the permanent redistribution of living and growing follicles through no-linear-scar minimally-invasive hair transplantation (like NeoGraft FUE and ARTAS), visit http://www.baumanmedical.com for a long-distance or in-person consultation.
