Dr Richard Rogers Hair Transplant Doctor
Dr Richard Rogers Hair Transplant doctor
Dr Richard Rogers Hair Transplant doctor – performing high quality, patient centred, hair transplant surgery since 1996. Working only at Westminster Clinic, providing both medical and surgical hair loss treatments.
Originally a GP with a special interest in Dermatology, he accidentally came across a hair transplantation advert for a national hair transplant clinic.
Initially, he only intended doing it for 6 months whilst studying his MRCP, but he found his forte and it’s now nearly 27 years since then and Dr Rogers has seen many changes in the science of hair loss, as well as hair transplant techniques.
Naturally artistic, he specialises in “natural” hairlines – those that appear to have the randomness, irregularity and angulation of real hair, rather than the “Action Man” look.
He is well known to have the experience and skill to improve previous hair transplants, whether punch graft repair or strip hair transplant scar repair. Not many surgeons have this skill nowadays, as many young doctors choose only to learn the less demanding skill of FUE and never learn how to perform the best strip (FUT) hair transplants.
Dr Rogers was one of the first, new generation of doctors to learn strip micrograft hair transplant surgery. This had replaced the more primitive technique of punch grafting only a few years previously. Since then, Dr Rogers’ career has mirrored the ever improving standards of modern hair transplantation, including leading the way in many areas and contributing worldwide to the state of the art knowledge.
Dr Rogers was the first to introduce FUE (follicular unit extraction) into the UK in 2003, as well as the trichophytic closure.
Dr Rogers complaints about FUE technicians, the hair transplant robot and the poor quality of many Turkish hair transplants, are well known.
He is also available as a hair transplant medico legal expert witness with training in clinical report writing from Bond Solon and consequently has been in much demand whenever an experienced, neutral hair transplant expert is required by solicitors to give an opinion on their cases.
And having had both a strip (FUE) hair transplant and a FUE hair transplant himself, he knows what it’s like plus “he just enjoys having more hair!”
