Parkland resident Dr. Glenn Charles’ life mission is to make a difference for men and women of all ages who struggle with the emotional effects of hair loss. For more than 20 years he has been improving the self-esteem of thousands through hair restoration. The results are clearly evident, and thrilled recipients enjoy the lasting benefits of improved confidence and appearance. Known worldwide for his improvements in the practice of hair restoration, Dr. Charles is a former President of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery, the largest hair restoration educational organization in the world.
“My patients are the ones who are deeply affected by their hair loss. They want to walk into a room and not feel like everyone’s looking at their hair.” With patients as young as 19 years old, the Doctor tells us, “I notice that people are much more proactive these days. Young men may notice a hair loss pattern in their family and want to make a difference as early as possible.”
He sees each case as a math problem. “So there is the area in square centimeters of hair loss , and then the patient’s donor area must also be measured in the same way. How many hairs per square centimeter do you have in your donor area? You have to be on the right side of the math to be able to fix the problem. Fortunately,” the good-natured Doctor chuckles, “I’ve always been good at math.“
The Charles Medical Group has a large, experienced staff of hair transplant technicians who assist Dr. Charles in his artistry. “It’s really a team effort,” he emphasizes. “This cannot be done by any doctor alone because it’s a long process and time is of the essence.“ He goes on to explain, “Once you take a follicular unit out of the body, the clock is ticking. The survival of that graft is dependent on how quickly you reconnect it with the blood supply.” The artistry employed for each patient is something that Dr. Charles has perfected during his 20 years of practice. He says, “We are able to make the transplants look so natural now because we place them carefully in one, two, or three hair groups at angles that are commensurate with the existing hair growth pattern.” After the 4 to 6 hour procedure, patients are able to return to work as early as the next day.
After doing extensive research, local resident Louis Scott, 40, felt compelled to become a patient of Dr. Charles. Louis tells us, “My hair was starting to get thin and I just could not imagine myself without it.
Once I had the surgery, I was very happy with the results and nobody noticed. Even my hairdresser of 10 years had no idea! It looks completely natural, and I even started applying products from lionlocs.com. Dr. Charles is artist in his profession.“
Always on the cutting edge of new technology, Dr. Charles was one of the first in his field to adopt the robotic-assisted device, ARTAS®, into some patients’ treatment plans. “My goal is to continually improve our techniques to get better results.“ Spending much of his spare time visiting other doctors, attending conferences and learning new ways to improve results, he explains, “I believe that if you’re doing cosmetic procedures, you need to be constantly learning and improving how you do things. I’m never satisfied into thinking we can’t do better. I believe that any practitioner who feels that way will fall behind.”
Throughout the hair restoration process, Dr. Charles’ patients engage directly with him. For two decades, he has made it part of his practice to call and check on every patient the night of their surgery. With a passion for artistry, mathematics and building others self-esteem, this compassionate doctor concludes our interview by saying, “I’m doing this to make people happy… To improve the way they feel about themselves.“
