Dr Knudsen and I recently returned from the 6th annual Asian Association of Hair Restoration Surgeons meeting in Beijing, China. This was a 3 day meeting covering a variety of topics ranging from advances in medical therapy for hair loss to more technical aspects with relation to FUT and FUE surgery. It was an incredibly well organised meeting with an amazing international faculty that included stalwarts in the field of Hair Restoration, Dr Richard Shiell and Dr Walter Unger.
This was a fascinating conference and gave us a greater insight into the popularity of Hair Restoration surgery specifically in the Asian market which has skyrocketed in the last few years, and further nuances of hair transplantation in the Asian population.
This was all capped off with a Gala Dinner that included a full 12 course Chinese banquet and cultural performance.
The final day involved a live surgery work shop at a state of the art facility in Beijing. During this time we were able to observe some of the faculty from around the world performing a variety of surgeries including frontal hairline restoration; eyebrow and eyelash transplantation using both FUT and FUE techniques.
