Hair Transplant Surgeons Author Hair Loss for Dummies Book

Hair Loss & Replacement for Dummies is an authoritative guide explaining the causes of hair loss and the newest ways to treat it.

NEW YORK, Dec. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Renowned hair restoration surgeons Robert M. Bernstein, M.D., F.A.A.D., and Dr. William Rassman, have co-authored the first authoritative, but user-friendly guide, to help both men and women understand hair loss, its prevention, and their medical and hair transplant options. The book, published by John Wiley & Sons, Inc., was published on December 3. Titled Hair Loss & Replacement for Dummies, the book follows in the tradition of the other informative books in the popular For Dummies series. Dr. Bernstein is the author of numerous medical publications on hair restoration, which can be found at

Those who follow the current trends in hair restoration and hair transplant procedures know Dr. Bernstein for his pioneering work in the development of the Follicular Unit Transplantation procedure which has revolutionized the treatment of hair loss. Recently awarded a certificate of achievement from Columbia University, he has been named one of New York Magazine's "The Best Doctors in New York" for the ninth consecutive year.

"Dr. Rassman and I felt it was necessary to write this book because we wanted to dispel many of the myths about hair loss and give men and women basic, easily understandable information about their hair loss," Dr. Bernstein explained. "We feel that this book will provide men and women suffering from common baldness and other types of alopecia with the tools necessary to make informed decisions about their condition. There are a lot of options when it comes to the treatment of hair loss and we want to make certain that consumers are making the decisions that are the best fit for them as individuals -- whether it is medical therapy or a hair transplant."

In addition to providing readers with information about the latest trends in hair loss medications and hair transplants, the book also aims to caution against potentially harmful products that are currently on the market for treating hair loss. Finally, the text also gives tips for maintaining a healthy head of hair: from washing and drying correctly, to caring for children's hair.
