Hi, Dr. Bauman here. I hope you are all staying safe and healthy during these challenging, and often stressful, times that have affected every single one of us. For most of us, it’s meant putting a lot of things on hold: regular life activities, family get-togethers, and many things like sports, going to the gym, shopping, eating at your favorite restaurants, getting a haircut, have all been put on hold. For our patients at Bauman Medical, it’s meant delaying hair and scalp health evaluations, follow-ups as well as hair restoration treatments and procedures. It’s been a tough time, no doubt, we have all been affected, and having spoken to so many of you over these weeks, I know that it has not been easy.
The good news is that Florida is beginning to restart slowly, carefully reopening, and this includes medical procedures state-wide.
Of course, this “restart” is being done safely, in phases, including right here at Bauman Medical. As we have done before and during this crisis, we have gone above and beyond to keep our patients and our Bauman Team safe. For those of you who have been waiting for us to restart our treatments and procedures, I’m proud to announce that Bauman Medical Hair Transplant and Hair Loss Treatment Center is safely and slowly re-opening and functioning as a “COVID-Protected Facility.”
What is a “COVID-Protected” Hair Transplant Facility?
We will continue to vigilantly screen our staff for ANY health issues. In addition,
For those patients who are visiting us:
We’re screening patients well in advance of their arrival to the office.
We’re screening patients when they arrive: taking their temperature, conducting COVID testing if necessary.
We’re limiting the number of patients in our facility, especially in waiting areas to maintain social distancing.
All visits will be by appointment only, so no walk-ins, please.
All patients will be required to wear a mask and all of our staff will be fully equipped with the appropriate protective gear.
As we have done since the beginning of this situation, we will continue to meticulously sanitize our facility frequently throughout the day, including disinfecting all surfaces, equipment, and seating areas before and after each patient, and performing our Deep Cleaning Protocol on a nightly basis.
As we slowly phase-in our reopening, for those who are not ready to see us in person, we’ll continue to provide Virtual Consultations for new patients and Virtual follow-ups for our existing patients when possible. If you haven’t connected with us yet “virtually,” it’s simple and easy!
The exciting news is that if you’ve been waiting for our office to reopen to have your hair transplant procedures, PRP, or PDOgro treatments, or if you’ve been putting off your hair loss consultation, or want to resume your at-home hair regrowth therapies, it’s time for us to connect at https://www.BaumanMedical.com/schedule-consultation.
My team and I look forward to seeing you soon. Until then, take care and stay safe!
To Your Hair’s Health,

#43 – Alan Bauman, M.D.: The science of male and female hair restoration – how to protect, enhance, and restore the appearance and health of the hair and scalp
“When [a patient] looks in the mirror and sees that hairline growing back in and says, ‘I would never have thought I would see my hairline again. I never thought I’d cover that bald spot.’ I mean, that’s the exciting thing that keeps me going every day.” —Alan Bauman MD
In this episode, Alan Bauman, MD, ABHRS-certified hair transplantation surgeon, and hair restoration expert, discusses both male and female pattern hair loss, the science behind what drives it, and what that tells us about prevention and restoration. Having treated over 20,000 patients, Alan shares his invaluable insights into what works and what doesn’t in terms of the non-surgical treatment options from compounded prescriptions like 82M minoxidil, FinPlus finasteride, laser therapy, cell therapy, etc. We also go into great detail about the more invasive approaches like PRP, and of course, hair transplantation, a procedure which Alan has refined over the years into a proprietary method that seems to produce unbelievable results. Additionally, Alan provides tips for maintaining scalp health, which is vital for hair growth, as well as the importance of choosing a hair specialist who has the tools, expertise, and patience to develop a compassionate and encompassing approach to hair restoration.

Alan Bauman, MD, Adds SmartGraft® To Treatment Portfolio, Producing Natural-Looking FUE Hair Transplant Results From His Florida Practice
Revolutionary Technology Restores Hairlines For Men And Women
Boca Raton, Florida – May 2, 2018 --Internationally Renowned Hair Transplant Surgeon Dr. Alan J. Bauman, MD bringsSmartGraft®, a minimally invasive and permanent hair restoration treatment for both men and women, to his state of the art practice in Boca Raton, Florida which serves Miami, Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale and beyond.
Dr. Bauman is one of only 200 physicians globally to achieve certification from the American and International Board of Hair Restoration Surgery (ABHRS), be an accepted member of the International Alliance of Hair Restoration Surgeons (IAHRS) and also recommended by the American Hair Loss Association. In addition, he has attained the coveted Fellow status within the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (FISHRS).
Hair is Dr. Bauman’s passion; he is an Advisory Board Member for the World Trichology Society and is also the author of numerous articles and textbook chapters on the science of hair care and hair transplantation, including eyelash transplant surgery. He is a successful early-adopter and pioneer of some of the most advanced technologies in the effective treatment of hair loss including no-linear-scar FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction, which is why SmartGraft appealed to Dr. Bauman.
“As an FUE hair transplant pioneer who has used numerous manual, mechanical and robotic devices over more than 15 years and after extensive internal device testing and research, I can say with great confidence that SmartGraft is a dramatic improvement over previous manual mechanical FUE tools currently on the market,” states Dr. Bauman. “Innovations like the unique closed, climate-controlled internal graft storage and hydration system, programmable microprocessor control, and on-board LED lighting system on the handpiece are improving accuracy, efficiency and, most importantly, our patients’ results.” He details that minimally invasive FUE harvesting of individual follicular units for transplantation with SmartGraft allows patients a faster, more comfortable, less restricted recovery phase compared to old-style linear “strip” harvesting.
Since no wide-shave of the donor area is required, handheld FUE devices such as SmartGraft empower Dr. Bauman and his team to execute traditional transplants for male pattern hair loss, as well as specialty transplants like female hairline lowering, female pattern hair loss, female temple restoration, eyebrow transplantation, beard and body hair harvesting, as well as smaller “no shave” FUE procedures from the scalp for male and female hair loss patients. “With SmartGraft, all patients maintain the benefits of leaving behind absolutely NO telltale linear scar,” adds Dr. Bauman.
SmartGraft makes hair replacement a more accessible, effective and realistic option than ever before for both men and women with hair loss, delivering natural-looking outcomes with little downtime. When expertly performed, the treatment is quick, comfortable and permanent.

About FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction
FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction is the least invasive hair transplant graft harvesting technique that leaves absolutely NO telltale linear scar in the donor area and with a more comfortable and less restricted recovery than traditional “Strip Harvest” techniques. Grafts as small as a single hair can be harvested from the Donor Area and when implanted with artistry and precision by an expert surgeon, create an undetectably natural restoration of living and growing hair.
Vision Medical, Inc. is a leading USA manufacturer that develops and markets medical and aesthetic technology products for the medical and aesthetic markets for worldwide distribution. Vision Medical’s first commercial product, the SmartGraft® Hair Restoration System, uses minimally-invasive vacuum assisted FUE technology for men and women. SmartGraft keeps the newly harvested grafts chilled, hydrated & robust without any exposure to outside air for optimal graft preservation. To learn more about SmartGraft and its technology, visit www.SmartGraft.com.
What is SmartGraft device for FUE hair transplantation?
SmartGraft™ is the fastest, most advanced hand-held device for minimally-invasive FUE Follicular Unit Extraction hair transplant procedures we have ever used at Bauman Medical, allowing for the individual harvesting of follicular unit grafts directly from the Donor Area of the scalp without leaving a linear scar or “zipper” appearance. Shorter FUE procedure times means reduced risks of graft failure and poor growth quality, as well as enhanced patient comfort. SmartGraft, by Vision Medical, also has a complete microprocessor controlled graft extraction and storage system which reduces the risk of damage to the fragile FUE grafts.
Many, including North America's #1 Top Hair Restoration Surgeon (Aesthetic Everything), Dr. Alan J. Bauman MD, believe that SmartGraft is simply a better or maybe “smarter!” way to perform a hair transplant. SmartGraft is a breakthrough device that helps hair transplant surgeons and their specialized teams perform FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction hair transplantation. Less invasive than traditional linear "strip" harvesting, Follicular Unit Extraction uses no scalpel, no stitches, no staples in the donor area--allowing for faster healing and less discomfort after transplantation.
What is FUE Follicular Unit Extraction?
Hair transplantation is the redistribution of permanent, living and growing hair follicles from the “Donor” Area into a thinning or balding “Recipient” area of the scalp. FUE is a harvesting technique which is less invasive than traditional strip or linear harvesting which requires no scalpel or stitches in the Donor Area. Recovery from FUE procedures is more comfortable and less restrictive than with linear or strip harvesting. The vast majority of patients require absolutely NO strong pain medications during their recovery and can return to non-impact athletic physical activity in just several days.
Dating back prior to 2002, renowned hair loss expert and ABHRS-certified Hair Restoration Surgeon, Dr. Alan J. Bauman, MD, ABHRS was amongst a handful of surgeons worldwide who helped develop instruments for, as well as pioneer, research, teach and train doctors on the minimally-invasive techniques of FUE. Dr. Bauman was the very first board-certified hair transplant surgeon in North America to routinely use Neograft, a motorized hair transplant system for no-linear-scar hair follicle harvesting, starting in 2007. He was also one of the first physicians to use the FDA-approved ARTAS robotic-assisted FUE system. Since 2002, Dr. Bauman and his surgical team have transplanted more than 2,500,000 follicular units using the FUE technique–making Dr. Bauman one of the most experienced FUE surgeons in the world. FUE is the least invasive hair transplant procedure and leaves absolutely NO linear scar. It has less downtime and less discomfort than traditional “linear” or “strip-harvest” procedures.
Will SmartGraft FUE Hair Transplant Look Natural?
The final naturalness and undetectability of a hair transplant relies primarily on the minimally-invasive FUE harvesting method of grafts as small as a single follicle and the artistic ability of the surgeon who creates the sites where the follicles will be implanted. Your surgeon must understand the bounds of naturalness of the hairline design, as well as the relationship of each and every angle, orientation and position of the transplanted hair so that the end result looks natural, and not transplanted. Dr. Bauman is renowned for his artistic approach to hairline design and meticulous execution in his hair transplant procedures.

A: Transplanted hair comes from the back of the scalp or Donor Area, which is relatively immune to the effects of hereditary male pattern hair loss or androgenetic alopecia (AGA). When these follicles are moved or transplanted to the thinning or balding area, they will "take" and grow in that area with lasting results. Follicles that were in the balding area previously were sensitive to the effects of the body's hormones like Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which caused them to miniaturize and eventually die, whereas the hair follicles from the back of the scalp are NOT sensitive to DHT. In simple "agricultural" analogy, the problem is not with the "soil" or skin in that balding area, but the problem is with the "plants" or follicles that were genetically sensitive to hair loss. The entire field of hair transplantation is based on the well-established "Theory of Donor Dominance" which describes the fact that hair follicles transplanted from the more permanent or "safe" zones in the Donor Area retain their ability to produce hair in a way that is unaffected by DHT--the primary trigger for male pattern hair loss. Even a man who has extensive baldness still typically maintains hair around the sides and back of the scalp. These are the locations from which transplanted hair follicles are harvested.
The most obvious examples of the permanency of hair transplants are easily seen in the old, "pluggy" results from outdated 4mm "punch-graft" hair transplant procedures of yesteryear which contained 20-30 hair follicles. Quite unnatural looking, these tufts of transplanted hair can still be seen growing on people's scalps today if they have not been camouflaged with additional hair transplants. Those old plug-type hair transplants, which are far different from today's "follicular unit" and artistic, single-follicle approach, are often a cause of many misconceptions about modern day hair transplants. Today's hair transplants use techniques in which an artistic surgeon using small follicular-unit grafts can create a 100% natural looking result and ongoing non-surgical, medical treatments will protect the non-transplanted hair that remains at-risk.
Hair transplantation is the only permanent way to restore your own living and growing hair.
