The Hair Transplant Road Show Episode 10

The hallmark of excellent cosmetic surgery lies in its subtlety; its true success is when it goes unnoticed. Take hair transplants, for instance: a compliment on the obviousness of the procedure suggests a less-than-perfect job. Indeed, the hairline can make or break the entire transplant, making its design a critical skill for surgeons.

In this episode of The Hair Transplant Roadshow, I’m joined by one of the world’s leading hair surgeons, Dr. Ron Shapiro, to further explore this topic.
