Are you at risk for #ManBunBaldness?

Bad news for the "top knot" or "man bun" fans... Yes, a tight ‪#‎ManBun‬ can certainly put someone at risk for hair loss due to traction alopecia depending on the length of time the "bun" is worn and how tight it is. Chronic pulling on the hair fiber can cause hair loss and permanent damage to the follicle over time--in other words, it's considered high-risk for baldness. Similar risks are associated with hair loss in women with hair extensions, tight braids, hairpieces attached with clips, etc. Folks (men and women) need to remember that you can loose 50% of your hair before its noticeable to the naked eye.

What to do if you think your hairline is receding from the man bun or you're experiencing ‪#‎ManBunBaldness‬? Visit a Bauman Certified HairCoach professional who is certified and trained in HairCheck cross-sectional hair bundle trichometry measurements for a non-invasive accurate scientific assessment of hair growth changes over time. That way you'll know if you're doing damage in the very early stages and if you are at risk for hair loss due to other causes like hereditary hair thinning or male pattern baldness.

Medical and nutritional interventions may help prevent some damage, but once follicles become permanently destroyed, hair transplants are needed to restore growth.

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."

In July last year, after complaining publicly about his hair loss for more than 13 years, Rolston became a recent member of Bauman’s “Follicle Fan Club” after receiving a minimally-invasive NeoGraft FUE hair transplant procedure from Bauman that was broadcast live via the Internet to a global audience of more than 75,000 viewers from 22 countries. Rolston gained national notoriety throughout the radio broadcast industry as the first disc jockey to undergo a live NeoGraft FUE hair transplant on the air.

Early intervention is key, as well as utilizing a multi-therapy approach as prescribed by a qualified hair restoration specialist. For patients who need the ultimate weapon in the battle against baldness, artistically performed NeoGraft FUE is the top choice. This minimally invasive, no-stitch/no-scalpel follicular unit extraction transplant creates a full, natural-looking hairline with zero risk of linear scarring and little downtime.”

Bauman has treated more than 15,000 hair loss suffers since 1997 and is considered one of the world’s top medical experts on hair loss, having been regularly featured in the country’s leading print, radio and television media.

According to Bauman, who medically clears all patients prior to their procedures, both men’s hair loss symptoms are classic.  “The combination of Cary’s and Steve’s age, along with possible hereditary, environmental and lifestyle factors, all tend to lead to the extreme hair thinning and areas that are hard to cover. Having been medically cleared, both men are absolutely ideal candidates to get results from the most technologically advanced, minimally invasive and virtually undetectable hair transplant procedure that I personally perform in my clinic on a daily basis.”

The winner will receive a Free NeoGraft FUE Hair Transplant – Value - $5,000.

This is the state-of-the-art hair transplant procedure that Bauman has become world-famous for performing. Using the most sophisticated technology, the NeoGraft FUE device allows Bauman to artfully harvest and transplant individual living and growing hair follicles with faster recovery and no tell-tale linear scar.  Value: $5,000

FUE NeoGraft Advanced Hair Transplant FAQ's

Hair Transplant Advances:  Minimally Invasive NeoGraft FUE - FAQ’s 

What is NeoGraft FUE Hair Transplant?

NeoGraft FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is a minimally invasive approach to hair restoration that no longer requires the removal of a linear ‘strip’ of scalp.  Individual groups of follicles as small as a single hair are comfortably harvested and permanently redistributed into thinning areas. A combination of surgical skill and artistry delivers a 100% natural hair transplant result that is never ‘pluggy’ and never obvious because there's no linear scar to hide. Downtime is so comfortable and quick that you can return to most athletic activities in just three days.  Dr. Alan J. Bauman has been performing FUE since 2001 and was the first board-certified hair transplant surgeon to use the NeoGraft routinely for his patients, dating back to 2007.  Dr. Bauman is one of the most experienced FUE surgeons in the world and has offered no-scalpel, no-stitch FUE to his patients for over a decade. 

Rolston, Kevin Before & 6 Months After NeoGraft FUE


Do I need to shave my head for NeoGraft FUE?

No. For small sessions of transplantation, the harvested area can easily be hidden under your existing length of hair in the back of the scalp.  However, if you want the maximum number of grafts transplanted per session, a larger area would be shaved.


Will someone know I had the procedure done?

No. If you have the ability to wear a hat other headwear or stay out of sight for about a week, you can keep the procedure a complete secret.  Cosmetic recovery takes approximately one week for the vast majority of patients.

Is NeoGraft FUE available for men and women? 

Yes. Both men and women can enjoy the benefits of the less invasive NeoGraft FUE hair transplant procedure.  See male results and female results.


Can NeoGraft FUE be used for eyebrows and Body Hair Transplantation?  

Yes. In most cases, eyebrow transplants can be performed using the less-invasive NeoGraft FUE approach.  NeoGraft FUE can also be used to harvest beard and other body hair in cases where the supply of scalp donor hair is limited.

Eyebrow transplant patients request celebrity eyebrows - NY POST article

Eyebrow-Transplant NYPost DrBauman The trend in eyebrows is for a fuller, thicker brow for the framing of the eye. For those that have overplucked or have thinned out over time, eyebrow transplantation is a permanent way to restore living and growing eyebrows, beyond the two-dimensional pencil or tattoo. At Bauman Medical Group, Dr. Alan Bauman often uses the less invasive NeoGraft FUE technique for hair follicle harvesting which requires no scalpel and no stitches in the donor area and leaves no linear scar. Artistic eyebrow design and meticulous hair follicle placement allows for the permanent restoration of eyebrows weakened or damaged by overplucking or age-related thinning. Want a new shape, but not sure what eyebrow 'look' would work for you? A simple consultation with Dr. Bauman can help determine which eyebrow design would enhance your eye-area. Eyebrow Transplantation is a relatively short, comfortable, outpatient procedure performed under local anesthesia using the FDA-approved "Ouchless Needle." Most patients do not require pain medication after one day and cosmetic recovery of the skin takes about a week. Trimming, once the follicles are growing, is mandatory.
