Description

Dr. Dorin explains his approach to planning the hair transplant procedure with each patient.

DR. ROBERT J. DORIN: The patient has a lot of uncertainties about what to expect, the outcomes, the limitations, the pitfalls. I believe the role as a physician it’s my responsibility and obligation to them to morally and ethically guide them through the process, where they are going to have the best outcome. Not just for the year, five years, ten years but for the rest of their life. And sometimes that means putting the hairline a little bit higher. A little bit more receded. Treating or not treating an area, which the patient may want treated at that particular point in time. But given five or ten years, knowing that their degree of balding, where it is going to progress to, it’s better off that you hold off on that and start them on medical therapy and let things develop. Because as you know, we don’t have any objective testing to know what degree or how much they are going to go bald. Therefore, we have assume the worst case scenario, given their family history. So I would say a very conservative natural approach to the hair transplantation.
