This question was asked by a member of our Hair Loss Social Community and Discussion Forums:
I recently consulted with a hair transplant surgeon and noticed that he suffered from a significant degree of hair loss. It made me curious, do hair restoration surgeons frequently undergo hair transplant surgery themselves?
Interesting topic! I actually think quite a few hair restoration physicians either discovered the field of medical hair restoration while seeking a solution for their own hair loss, or underwent a procedure after performing hair transplantation for a period of time and realizing the potential it could have on their own scalp.
I seem to remember an interview where one recommended hair transplant surgeon discussed his own hair transplant procedure and a procedure he performed on a colleague. Additionally, I recall an interview with a well known, bald hair transplant surgeon who was met with puzzled questions regarding his chosen career path and own level of hair loss.
