Dr. Andrew Ordon’s Hair Restoration Surgery!
Thinning hair affects many, including our own Dr. Andrew Ordon. The Doctors show host meets with hair transplant surgeon Dr. Craig Ziering to find out what can be done to improve his hairline.
The surgeon becomes the patient as plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon visits hair transplant surgeon Dr. Craig Ziering to undergo a hair restoration procedure. Dr. Ziering performs a procedure in which the back of the head is shaved and that hair is then harvested and moved to the front of the head where balding and thinning occurs. Dr. Ziering says in this procedure Dr. Ordon acts as both the donor and the recipient!
The Doctors watch as Dr. Ordon gets shaved and then Dr. Ziering makes tiny incisions for where the hair grafts are going to be placed. Six weeks after the procedure, Dr. Ordon talks with Dr. Ziering on Skype to discuss how it all went!
Dr. Ordon shares that he initially had little buds that were growing where the hair grafts were placed. He has since lost those and now has to wait a couple of months for all the hair to grow in at full scale.
Dr. Ziering discusses again how the procedure works, sharing that he is able to do it without any scaring. He explains the hairs that have fallen out have left bulbs that will remain and form new hair underneath. There is a resting period of 3-4 months and then the hair slowly starts to regrow at 4 months on out to 12 months resulting in natural looking results. He shares this procedure is not only for men but also for many women who suffer from hair loss.
