Program Description

The live online webinar occurred on the date and time as noted. The live program was recorded and is available for viewing on demand until Dec. 31, 2022.

This 2.25-hour CME activity was a live webinar that was recorded with the intention to be re-watched or viewed as on-demand education. The program is intended for physicians who perform hair transplantation surgery utilizing either strip or FUE graft harvest methods. This webinar is being conducted to provide physicians knowledge on consultation and evaluation of patients seeking for hair restoration treatment and surgery. As a result of this activity, learners will gain more knowledge to be able to accurately evaluate for patients to achieve optimal results. The online live component included presentations, panel discussion, and audience participation via verbal questions and discussion, typed chat Q&A and polling.

Professional Practice Gap

Without proper diagnosis through meticulous consultation and evaluation, medical and surgical outcomes may not be as optimal as they should, regardless of the quality of the physician and their team. Hair restoration treatment and surgery will not only depend on the knowledge of the physician, but its relationship with the patient through the consultation which can be enhanced through this first evaluation.

Educational Need

A hair transplant surgeon needs to set the tone and plan for a successful hair transplantation procedure. To achieve this, the hair restoration surgeon needs to evaluate thoroughly the patient’s scalp and body hair through meticulous examination, including history of hair loss, clinical evaluation, trichoscopy and, if needed, a trichogram and/or a biopsy.

Hair restoration surgery is usually not a “once-in-a-lifetime” procedure and planning long-term results is fundamental, which usually happens and is discussed with the patient during the first consultation and evaluation. Donor areas are not limited to the scalp; with newer techniques, body hair has become a donor area that also has to be assessed within the complete restoration plan. Several devices and techniques are being proposed to better assess donor and recipient areas. As professionals in this area, we must acquire such knowledge on behalf of our patients’ best interests.
