Local surgeon using chest hair to battle baldness
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - A local surgeon one of the first in the country to treat baldness in a new way.
It may be common knowledge that hair transplants can be used to cure baldness. They can be done for both men and women and can give a person a full head of hair.
Usually, surgeons take hair from the back of the head and transplant it on top, but Dr. Jon Mendelsohn and a team of trained specialists at the Advanced Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center are getting that hair from another part of the body.
“We are moving to the chest to remove hair from the chest to replace it from his scalp,” said Dr. Jon. “So eventually you have normal texture just like the scalp hair.”
