The decline of razor sales may be an indicator of the rise in popularity of growing a beard. Some raise the question whether "Hipsters" in NY are to blame for this popular trend, but we've seen a wide cross-section of men in South Florida looking to fill in gaps in their goatees, mustaches or beards, covers scars from plastic surgery (facelifts or cleft-palate), acne or facial injuries, Hasidic Jews seeking thicker peyot/sidelocks, and transgender patients completing their masculine transformation through thicker facial hair.
As one of the cosmetic surgery capitals of the world, South Florida and Boca Raton, FL specifically, at Bauman Medical Group we have seen a dramatic increase in requests for information about facial hair transplants over the past year and a spike in beard transplant surgeries from across the U.S.. This trend recently caught the attention of renowned shock-radio host, Howard Stern, who invited ABHRS-certified and IAHRS-accepted hair transplant surgeon, Dr. Alan J. Bauman, M.D. to discuss beard transplantation live on the air.
Advances in minimally-invasive hair transplant techinques like NeoGraft FUE, Follicular Unit Extraction, have allowed for the harvesting of hair follicles from the back of the scalp without the traditional--and invasive--scalpel & stitches process. Less downtime, less pain, quicker recovery, fewer activity restrictions, and absolutely NO linear scar are some of the benefits of NeoGraft FUE approach.
Of course, aside from harvesting techniques and skill, Hair Transplantation and Beard Transplantation requires significant artistry on the part of the surgeon, so the end results look natural and not transplanted.
Can Minoxidil be used for weak eyebrows to improve eyebrow follicle growth?
Minoxidil is not currently FDA-approved for enhancing eyebrow growth, but in our experience it certainly can work... with a few caveats. The main issue is that minoxidil, like other hair growth medications and treatments require the hair follicle to be present. If the hair follicles (the mini-organs which produce hair) are dead and gone, like from scarring/injury or overplucking for example, minoxidil is unlikely to have an effect.
Which is better, over-the-counter minoxidil solution or compounded prescription Formula 82M minoxidil?
Over the counter minoxidl solution contains propylene glycol, a common irrritant, and does not have any extra ingredients than can help with hair follicle improvement. Prescription compounded minoxidil, like Formula 82M might be a little bit more expensive to use, but has major benefits like quick absorbtion, non-greasy, extra hair growth ingredients (like retinoic acid), etc.
Therefore, at Bauman Medical Group, we absolutely recommend Formula 82M minoxidil instead of the over-the-counter versions because there are fewer side effects and more powerful effects on hair follicles. By the way, Latisse/bimatoprost can also work too, including PRP!
Will topical Formula 82m minoxidil, Latisse/bimatoprost or PRP eyebrows work for me?
The key for eyebrow enhancement success is determining if you have hair follicles that are still alive. If the brow is low density or sparse, these treatments are not likely to help a patient reach their goal. Keep in mind it takes months of treatment twice a day with a topical medication to judge results.
The best way to determine if you have hair follicles is by having a consultation with a full-time, board-certified Hair Transplant Surgeon or Hair Restoration Physician who is experienced in eyebrow enhancement, including medications, PRP, nutrition, as well as transplants. Remember that eyebrow loss can be a sign of certain medical conditions like thryoid imbalace... so seeking a doctor's advice is always a good idea if you are seeing thinning eyebrows.
Remember, thinning brows get worse with time without treatment, so sometimes in severe cases where eyebrow loss is continuing, the medication simply keeps the brows stable... a very good thing (although not very exciting)!
In cases of severe eyebrow loss, of course, you will need eyebrow transplantation using no-linear-scar NeoGraft FUE to restore a complete and beautiful brow.
Where can I get an online or in-person medical evaluation of my eyebrows?

Prominent Hair Loss Expert Interviewed for New eBook, Rejuvenating Hair as Women Age Dr. Alan Bauman discusses issues surrounding aging hair for the third installment of Dr. Barry Lycka’s Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today eBook series.
April 10, 2014
Boca Raton, FL – Forget wrinkles, it could be your hair that betrays your age. While unruly grays are the most known, and most obvious, there are six other signs of aging hair to watch out for—dryness, lackluster color, thinning, breakage, split ends, and frizz. And it doesn’t stop there, more than half of all women over 40 experience age-related hair loss or thinning.
To help women understand how aging effects their hair, Dr. Barry Lycka, author of the eBook series Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today, teamed up with nationally recognized hair loss expert, Dr. Alan Bauman, for his third installment of the series. Rejuvenating Hair as Women Age discusses the struggles women face as their hair ages and offers tips and advice on how to keep your hair healthy and vibrant.
“It is no secret that our bodies change as we age - but many women overlook the impact aging has on their hair,” Bauman explained. “When our skin ages, we develop wrinkles, fine lines, and age-spots. Similarly, when our hair ages, we can see thinning through loss of density, diameter and damage that leads to breakage.”
“Today, women with aging hair can expect success with topicals, laser therapy, platelet rich plasma and new minimally-invasive NeoGraft FUE hair transplants for scalp, eyelash and eyebrow loss without the need for stitches or linear scars,” explained Dr. Bauman.
Topics discussed in Rejuvenating Hair as Women Age include:
• Why female age related hair loss patterns are different from men • Why and how hair ages • How genetics play a role in hair loss as women age • The facts about hormones, menopause and hair loss in women • How stress, inflammation and nutrition affect women’s hair health • How to restore damaged hair – straight or curly • Why hair transplants for women have become a viable option. • How new techniques are restoring thinning eyebrows and eyelashes • What to expect from a physician when seeking hair loss treatment

Prominent Hair Loss Expert Talks Beard Transplants, Celebrity Scruff with Howard Stern
Dr. Alan Bauman appeared on SiriusXM Radio’s Howard Stern Show to discuss rise in beard transplants.
Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) March 13, 2014
Recent news of the increase in beard transplants has captivated the media, even catching the attention of Howard Stern’s popular radio show. Nationally prominent hair loss expert, Dr. Alan J. Bauman, was invited for a guest spot on the show on Tuesday, March 11, to discuss the phenomenon.
The hipster trend is largely credited for the increase, though the growing number of Hollywood stars sporting perfectly manicured beards and scruff has also contributed to the increased demand of the procedure.
Dr. Bauman discussed how the transplant works, and dished on which Hollywood stars have the most enviable facial hair. “Today's stars' facial hair may come and go... the most requested looks are still the iconic Tom Selleck 'stache and Elvis' sideburns,” Bauman revealed during the interview. South Florida Latinos are searching for the perfect machismo mustache or complete goatee.
Beard transplants, which cost around $7,000 or more, may seem extreme, but have become routine at Bauman Medical Group in recent years. “Like many clinics across the country, we’re seeing an increase in men opting to take advantage of the state-of-the-art technology that allows us to restore or enhance areas of facial hair,” explained Bauman. Bauman is no stranger to cosmetic transplants, he helped pioneer new eyelash transplant techniques in 2001.
In fact, despite beard transplants stealing the spotlight, eyelash transplants, hair transplants, as well as other body hair transplants are all on the rise.
About Beard Transplants and Other Transplant Trends:
Beard Transplants – The use of artistically-placed follicular units into a beard area can restore or enhance areas of facial hair that are lacking. Particular attention must be paid to the angle, orientation and position of each individual graft to achieve an aesthetically-pleasing result that looks 100% natural. Hair transplanted into the beard or mustache areas will need to be trimmed routinely, as the hair continues to live and grow naturally in the new location.
NeoGraft FUE: The "Cadillac" of transplants. The minimally-invasive NeoGraft device helps the surgical team extract hair follicles from the donor area of the scalp individually without the need for scalpel or stitches, leaving no linear scar. Recovery is faster, more comfortable and less restrictive. When properly performed, artistic hairline design using grafts of single follicles creates hair transplant results that truly defy detection.
Celebrity Hairlines - We’ve heard about women trying to get Angelina Jolie’s lips, but what about men who want Brad Pitt’s hairline? Believe it or not, celebrity hairlines are the latest trend in cosmetic surgery.
Eyebrow Transplants – Over-plucking the brows can cause follicular damage and permanent brow loss. A new microsurgical procedure can create new living, growing eyebrows; the procedure is also effective to cover scars.
Eyelash Transplants - Transplantation can be used to replace eyelashes that have been damaged by trauma, or to enhance existing eyelashes that are otherwise short and/or sparse. Dr. Bauman has perfected the art of eyelash transplantation, permanently transplanting literally dozens of living and growing follicles comfortably into each eyelid during the outpatient procedure.
Transgender Hair Transplants – Transgender hair restoration is an important aesthetic element to the gender male to female reassignment process. Hairline lowering, scar covering through transplantation are among the most requested transgender procedures.
Dr. Bauman has treated more than 15,000 hair loss sufferers 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.

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."
