Dr. Robert Leonard Puts Head in Hands of Leonard Hair Transplant Associates’ New Surgeon as Part of Hair Loss Awareness Month
Top Hair Restoration Surgeon to Receive Hair Restoration Procedure
Using ARTAS® Robotic System
Boston, MA (August 18, 2014)– On August 20th, Dr. Robert Leonard, Founder and Chief Surgeon of Leonard Hair Transplant Associates (LHTA), will become the patient when he receives a hair transplant procedure from LHTA surgeon, Dr. Matthew Lopresti. Dr. Lopresti will utilize the revolutionary ARTAS® Robotic System to perform the procedure. Dr. Leonard is undergoing the restoration in August to recognize hair loss awareness month.
Over 50 million men in the United States suffer from hair loss. However, many still do not understand about hair restoration surgery or do not realize it or are intimidated by the idea of a hair transplant procedure. “As a hair restoration surgeon, I always look critically at my hair,” said Dr. Leonard. “I practice what I preach and have taken measures over the years such as using Propecia, to ensure that my hair is well maintained and looks as good as possible. I now realize that I need a little more help, and the next step is a hair restoration procedure; I want to restore my hairline and to fill in my thinning crown.”
Hair loss only becomes noticeable when approximately 50% of a person’s hair has fallen out. In order to help those affected with hair loss look and feel better about their appearance, LHTA provides a variety of treatment options including ARTAS®.
“We chose ARTAS® for Dr. Leonard’s procedure because it fits his restoration needs and is the most advanced technique in the hair restoration surgical profession today,” said Dr. Lopresti. “This robotic device is the first and only FDA-cleared, physician-controlled, computer-assisted technology for hair transplantation. It is a minimally invasive solution and will provide Dr. Leonard with permanent results and no donor area linear scarring.”
“I am truly excited about my transplant procedure,” said Leonard. “I have full confidence in Dr. Lopresti! After training with me, he truly understands the art of hair restoration. I have seen his work with patients and I am excited to be his next masterpiece.”
Dr. Leonard will receive his ARTAS® hair transplant procedure on August 20th at his Cranston, RI office.
