Alan J. Bauman is a surgically-trained M.D., board-certified hair restoration surgeon and medical director of the Bauman Medical Group in Boca Raton, FL.

Biography[edit]

He first came to national prominence in 2006 for his role in pioneering “Eyelash Implants" [1][2][3][4][5][6][7] at the world’s first International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) Live Surgery Workshop for eyelash transplantation [8] in Torrance, California.

In recent years, Bauman has been credited with promoting low level laser therapy (LLLT) for hair loss,[9][10][11] follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplants,[12][13] prostaglandin analogs like bimatoprost,[14][15] hair loss genetic tests [16] and live surgery webcasts.[17][18]

Bauman was the first hair transplant surgeon to demonstrate ‘live’ the FUE method of hair transplantation at the 2003 International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery Orlando Live Surgery Workshop and developed the first commercially available instrument specifically for manual extraction of FUE grafts, called the 'Bauman MINDEX.'
