Bosley Hair Restoration

August 26th, 2013

Bosley advertises its hair transplant operation with TV and Internet spots, and even the occasional spam email. But while the operation does work for some, Robert Bernstein, the clinical professor of dermatology at Columbia University who first performed the procedure, cautioned in PopSci that “not everyone is a good candidate for the surgery, and you have to be careful about people who advertise a lot overprescribing the procedure.”

And a New York Times report on the procedure included the following caution:

Dr. Shan R. Baker, the president of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, suggested that before undergoing a hair-transplant procedure, patients should determine whether the surgeon is certified by the appropriate medical board, has hospital privileges at a local institution and has no adverse record with the local or state medical society.
