Drew Carey - Hair Transplant

Funnyman Drew Carey is making headlines for his dramatic weight loss, but as you can see from the photo, that isn't the only thing that is different about the comedian - he is also benefiting from a hair transplant. 

Given reports of Carey's impending return to television, it's probably safe to say he went for a follicular-unit extraction, or FUE, hair transplant surgery, to avoid any linear scarring. I call this the "Cadillac of hair transplants" - particularly when it's combined with the NeoGraft device.

This procedure is not only great for those in the spotlight that can't afford scarring but also for those looking to treat their hair loss discreetly. 

Drew looks healthier and younger thanks to his recent transformation and hopefully more will follow his example. 

Here are a few tips for keeping your hair transplant a secret:
1) minimally-invasive NeoGraft FUE - so there's no tell-tale linear scar
2) grow your hair to 1" in the donor area to hide a 'stealth-shave'
3) wear a hairstyle or hat for one week to cover the transplanted areas until the scabs flake off.
4) choose a surgeon and staff who can create an aesthetically-natural and undetectable hairline.
5) use healing treatments (like hyperbaric oxygen, low level laser therapy, protein sprays, Acell/Matristem, copper-peptide solutions, etc.) to accelerate the body's recovery.
