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.

In this hair transplant video interview, hair restoration physician Dr. Jerry Cooley shares a couple of stories about how some of his hair transplant patients' lives were transformed from surgical hair restoration.
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.
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.
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.
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).
