Dr. Jerry Cooley and his staff were early adapters of using microscopes to do excellent all follicular unit hair transplantation.

Why Dr. Cooley is recommended.

Dr. Cooley has an excellent reputation among his peers as one of the premiere surgeons doing follicular unit transplantation. He recently did an important study demonstrating the importance of using microscopes in creating grafts. He is also noted for his laboratory research on hair cloning.

View highlights of our visit to Dr Cooley's clinic .

Dr. Cooley's academic credentials are particularly notable with a medical internship at John Hopkins and a dermatology residency at the University of Maryland where he served as chief resident. He is also board certified in dermatology.

While in Baltimore he also trained extensively with Dr. James Vogel, a well recognized plastic surgeon from Johns Hopkins.

Dr. Cooley is an active member of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS), the world’s largest organization of hair restoration surgeons. He has served on the scientific and Internet committees for the ISHRS.

Dr. Cooley also was named Surgeon of the Month by the Hair Transplant Forum for his contributions to the field. He is certified by the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgeons (ABHRS).

Those who are in his area can go to him knowing that they are going to get quality work that is first rate by national and international standards. He takes a holistic approach to hair restoration and will also prescribe non surgical medications like Propecia.

If you live in the Carolinas or nearby areas I highly recommend doing a consultation with Dr. Cooley.

Well, I think I could live with the hair loss, but I did not like the idea.  You would have those "bad hair days" that made it difficult to feel good about facing the world.  I decided I would do something and take one more concern out...

World First: Dr. Cooley Ultra HD Hairline Result Video

Dr. Jerry Cooley and the team at Carolina Dermatology in Charlotte, North Carolina have had a stellar, if not somewhat low key, reputation for many years. The popularity of Dr. Cooley has been primarily through word of mouth online and in person and by using among the highest quality photos found anywhere online. Clarity of detail, consistency with lighting and backgrounds have been a staple of all of Dr. Cooley's presentations. However, you have never seen us present a single before/after video because we really haven't needed to use them and with how busy we have always been we really haven't have the time.

Now it's time to change. We've never used video to document our results but now we will and we will do so in a manner that no one has before. I'd like to introduce the world's first 4K Ultra HD hair transplant result video.

This video is best viewed on a 4K television or a 4K monitor. If you do not have either it is still visible at lower resolutions so set the resolution preference in the bottom right corner of the video frame.

About the patient; he first came to see us in 2006 to lower his hairline and to achieve moderate temple angle closure. He was 35 at the time. He had already been on Avodart for three years by the time he had his first surgery. Since then he had two much smaller procedures to add density and refinement. The result was recorded two weeks ago and this represents in great detail how he looks today.

Articles Published on our Hair Loss Q&A website.

Why Do I See ‘Grafts’ on My Pillow 16 Days after Hair Transplant Surgery?

6/30/2015

I am not sure if you were instructed on what happens after surgical hair restoration regardless of the harvesting method. In most cases the implanted grafts will “sit” and passively absorb oxygen and food from the surrounding tissue.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) as a Stand-Alone Treatment for Hair Loss?

6/23/2015

Yes, we use Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and ACell without surgical hair restoration to try and thicken hair.

Why Is the Hair Loss Treatment Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) So Expensive?

5/27/2015

It all depends on exactly what the hair restoration clinic performing the procedure is doing. If the clinic is using a cheap centrifuge that wasn’t designed for platelet rich plasma (PRP), it should not be expensive.

Is Hair Transplant Surgery an Attractive Option for Older Patients with Hair Loss?

3/12/2015

I have a significant number of men and women in their 60’s and 70’s who come in for hair restoration. My oldest patient ever was 83 and he continued to enjoy his new hairline until he was 95 when I last saw him. Older patients have the same motivation as younger patients (i.e. look better and restore self-image) and they usually have more realistic expectations.

Does Lowering the Dose of Propecia (Finasteride) Significantly Reduce Its Effect on Hair Loss?

1/21/2015

Good question. Dosing studies show that 0.5mg finasteride is almost but not quite as good as 1mg in suppressing DHT. I think everyone is different so some people will do well at this low dose.

Can I Have Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) after a Strip Hair Transplant (FUSS)?

6/12/2014

Great question! In my practice, helping a patient decide on FUE vs FUSS involves weighing several factors. Most of my patients wear medium length hair and place a premium on being able to get back to work in a week and, since we generally don’t shave donor or recipient, this is very realistic.

Is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) More Effective for Diffuse Hair Loss?

9/10/2013

I’m commonly asked how long PRP (+/- ACell) lasts. I think it depends on the patient and if their balding is rapid or slow, if they are on Propecia (finasteride), Rogaine (minoxidil), etc.

Can All Hair Transplant Patients Benefit from ACell and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

3/14/2013

We now offer and recommend PRP and ACell to anyone undergoing a hair transplant with us who has significant areas of thinning (miniaturization), either in the area to be transplanted or elsewhere.

Hair Transplant Surgery: The Effects of ACell on Healing and Hair Growth

3/2/2013

Coalition hair transplant surgeon Dr. Jerry Cooley is known for his innovative nature and dedication to state-of-the-art hair restoration.

Factors to Consider When Planning a Hair Transplant in the Crown

1/12/2012

It is complicated because there are many factors for the hair transplant surgeon to consider including the patient’s age, hair characteristics, current baldness, rate of hair loss, whether they are on Propecia finasteride, donor supply, etc.

Can Hair Transplant Surgery Be Performed in and around Existing Hair Without Shaving?

9/3/2011

We graft areas with existing hair all the time. Shaving is a nice technique, but fewer than 5% of our hair transplant patients are willing to do this.

Hair Transplant Graft Survival and Platelet Rich Plasma

12/3/2008

Over the last year (2008), we have been testing the use of platelet - rich plasma (PRP) in hair transplant surgery. Our interest was stimulated by two previous hair restoration physicians, Carlos Uebel from Brazil and Joseph Greco from Florida, who reported improved healing and graft survival with use of PRP. Before discussing PRP, it is useful to take a look at the hair transplantation process in general. Although we may sometimes take it for granted, it is quite amazing that hair follicles can be cut out of one area of the scalp and placed into an incision in another part of the scalp, and survive. Graft survival has been an interest of mine for many years, and I have written textbook chapters and given numerous lectures on this topic.

Taking Propecia for Hair Loss Every Other Day?

9/29/2008

Propecia is approved by the US FDA for once a day use for hair loss. This does not mean it is the best dosage, only the one that was studied and approved. The average serum “half-life” of finasteride 1mg is about 5 hours in young men and 8 hours in older men. This does not mean that half of the medicine is out of your body in that time period though. The finasteride molecule is distributed throughout the body where it binds to the type II 5-alpha-reductase enzyme, thereby inhibiting conversion of testosterone to dihydrotesterone (DHT).
