Dr. Steven Gabel is dedicated exclusively to performing ultra-refined follicular unit hair transplantation and follicular unit extraction with excellent results performed in the Portland area.

Why Dr. Gabel is recommended.

Dr. Gabel’s philosophy is to deliver world-class results by using the most advanced techniques, while treating each patient as an individual. He performs all microscopically prepared ultra refined follicular unit grafting. In addition, he uses the lateral slit technique for placement in order to maximize density and coverage. He carefully creates all the incisions for these refined follicular unit grafts using tiny custom cut blades. By carefully controlling the angle and direction of these incisions he creates a very natural pattern and direction for the new hair, even in the temple and sides.

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

Dr. Gabel specializes in both highly refined FUSS (Follicular Unit Strip Surgery) and advanced FUE (Follicuar Unit Extraction) using punches as small as .8mm to minimize trauma to the scalp.  Dr. Gabel has been performing FUE since 2006, when FUE was still in its infancy stages of development and innovation.  Dr. Gabel feels that FUE is vital and plays an important roll in today's hair transplant surgery, in particular for patients who want to wear their hair on the sides and back of their head cropped short.

Dr. Gabel takes pride in the fact that he personally places the majority of the grafts and rarely leaves the patient’s side. When closing the donor site Dr. Gabel uses his plastic surgery background in creating the most minimal scar possible using trichophytic closure techniques.

Dr. Gabel’s private office and surgical suite allow him to get to know his patients on an individual basis and provide a superior level of personal attention. He conducts all consultations himself. During consultations, he spends as much time as necessary to get a clear picture of his patients’ goals and expectations. He then provides an honest assessment of their needs and tailors his recommendations to each individual patient. He then designs a treatment plan that includes both medical and surgical options. This level of personalized attention continues from the initial consultation through the surgical procedure and the postoperative visits.

All surgery is performed in his private in office surgery suite under local anesthesia. This suite is tailored specifically to the needs of the hair restoration patient, featuring state-of-the-art surgical equipment and microscopes, as well as the latest in patient amenities. The special instruments he uses create tiny and minimally invasive incisions that enable very small grafts to be placed close together. This enables his patients to achieve cosmetic density in a given area after only one surgical session.

Medical Background

After graduating with honors from Michigan State University in 1990 with a Bachelor of Science in physiology, Dr. Gabel went on to earn his medical degree from the Loyola University-Chicago, Stritch School of Medicine in Illinois. He followed these studies with a one-year internship in general surgery at the Loyola University Medical Center and a four-year residency in Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery at the same center. During his time at Loyola, Dr. Gabel engaged in research studies on the process of new blood vessel growth in head and neck cancer.

Following his residency, Dr. Gabel elected to complete a one-year fellowship at the University of Missouri focused specifically on facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, where he was actively involved in numerous hair restoration procedures.

Dr. Gabel continues to keep abreast of the many developments in the field of hair restoration surgery through his active involvement in professional organizations. In addition to his membership in the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, he is a member of several other highly respected medical associations and societies. These include the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery, the Oregon Medical Association, and the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. He is board-certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery.

Over the years, Dr. Gabel has been recognized numerous times for his research projects, winning several first place and other top national awards. He has also lectured and published on the subjects of hair loss and restoration, facial cosmetic surgery, head and neck surgery, and he has taught hair restoration courses to other surgeons.

Steve Gabel, MD – Portland, Seattle – 2098 Graft Crown Transplant

This 53-year-old gentleman started thinning years ago at the top and crown areas of his scalp. He had tried medications without any significant growth.

We transplanted 2098 grafts into the crown approximately 6 months ago. The series of photographs show the scalp as he presented before any surgery or haircuts, another photograph depicting the area of transplant showing his natural swirl pattern with blue markings, and the 6-month preliminary results.

The swirl pattern was created by following some the “wispy” natural hairs that he had so I am able to make the slits in the natural direction and angle of his native hair. At 6 months, the transplanted follicular unit grafts are growing very well. He said that he did not shed that much after surgery and he has been already cutting his hair regularly. Also, the video shows the close up of the donor scar, which is thin and difficult to see even with his hair cut very short.

Overall the hair growth is excellent at this stage and we anticipate that the number of hairs will continue to increase and his hair will also thicken over time. He said he would come back in 3-month intervals to show his growth over time.

Numbness of the top the scalp is very common after hair restoration surgery. When making incisions in the balding area, the nerves that innervate the scalp are “stunned” for a while.

How to Shampoo Effectively after Hair Transplant Surgery

3/5/2011

I recommend and give baby shampoo to my patients after hair restoration surgery. I know it will not hurt the grafts as it is very mild. After doing hair transplants for greater then 10 years, I have never had a problem with hair growth so I know it is not doing any harm to the newly transplanted follicular unit grafts.

Will Tanning Affect the Results of My Hair Transplant?

11/2/2010

I recommend to my patients that they avoid unprotected sunlight exposure for 3 months after hair transplant surgery. This is not a hard and fast rule but it is important not to expose the grafted site for some time as the added radiation exposure could cause prolonged redness to the skin at the grafted site.

New IPhone Application and Treatment for Hair Loss?

7/23/2009

This takes the cake, or should be up there, in a list of top 10 bogus hair loss solutions. There is now an IPhone application for hair loss called: “HAIR CLINIC: for man and woman.” I just found this on the internet and had to check it out and it is true. Go to Apple’s website in the application store and you will find it.

When is it Safe to Use Hair Color After a Hair Transplant?

6/22/2009

There is no magical answer to when hair transplant patients can start dying their hair. The reason for this is that each patient heals at a different rate. I have some patients who come back 10 days after their hair replacement procedure and their incision and recipient sites look like they have healed. I have others that need a little more time to heal.

Can Low Iron Levels Cause Hair Loss?

3/21/2009

Iron deficiency is a real cause of hair loss. I have seen several cases of iron deficiency as a causative factor for alopecia in women. When I see women for hair loss, one of the things I investigate, along with other blood tests, is their iron levels. For men, a blood work up is rare, however, if their history and examination are not consistent with androgenetic alopecia, then I will investigate further.

Tender Breasts and Nipples While Using Propecia for Hair Loss

2/17/2009

I’ve been prescribing Propecia (finasteride) for hair loss for several years and did have one patient who had breast tenderness and gynecomastia (enlarged breasts) after taking the Propecia. The patient elected to continue the medication, and if the problem continued, he was going to...

How Soon Can I Go Swimming and Resume Normal Activity After Hair Transplant Surgery?

2/6/2008

I believe that the first two weeks following hair transplant surgery are the most critical. And it is important to understand that each person heals at different speeds; some balding men and women look amazing after one week while others take a little more time to look the same way. For the incision, it is important not to stretch it or put any undo forces opposing the edges of the incision. This will just lead to more collagen formation, and ultimately, a larger scar. I tell all my hair replacement patients to allow the incision to heal well before any strenuous activity.
