restoration has been of very special interest of Dr. Krugman since the
1970s. He was initially mentored by one of Beverly Hills' pioneers of
hair restoration surgery. As a resident in training in plastic surgery,
Dr. Krugman continued to refine his technique, which he subsequently
taught to surgeons and dermatologists in practice.
Hair transplantation is dependent on the principle of "Donor
Dominance." Simply stated, the hair retains the characteristics of the
area from which it is taken, rather than those of the area to which it
is transplanted. From the 1970s to the mid-1980s, the donor graft area
was large. After that, the donor area became smaller and the number of
hairs taken from the donor area larger. Today we cut grafts with special
binocular microscopes into small follicular groups.
It has always been a priority to maintain hair restoration surgery as
an integral part of our practice. One of the difficulties in performing
hair restoration surgery is the maintenance of a skilled team. Our key
graft cutters were trained in Europe and have, in turn, taught others.
hair restoration patients are treated as are our other plastic surgery
patients. All consultations are with Dr. Krugman. We only treat one
patient at a time. Our entire focus is on that one patient. All our
surgeries take place in an accredited surgical center. A critical care
nurse monitors the patient and provides sedation if needed.
Many of our referrals are from our professional colleagues, including
other plastic surgeons. Because of our unique referral pattern, about 40
percent of our patients are women. We are very proud and flattered that
celebrities, other physicians, and individuals who could go anywhere
they choose have become our patients. We have directed our practice
towards those who seek individual treatment from a dedicated, caring,
Dr. Krugman enjoys writing and lecturing on hair transplantation to
physician groups. If you are interested in the articles he's written,
please feel free to contact our office and we
will be happy to send you a brochure of Dr. Krugman's publications and
his extensive training.
