ApetoGentleman – The Top 25 Hair Transplant Surgeons in the World | Spex-Hair

I am very proud to announce that I have featured in a prestigious list,  The Worlds Best 25 Hair Transplant surgeons in the World, as published on men’s grooming website,  Apetogentleman.com.

My nomination came courtesy of Spencer ‘Spex Hair’ Stevenson, a tireless advocate for hair loss sufferers all over the world.

Spencer, also known as ‘Spex Hair’, draws from his own exhausting experiences in hair loss treatments to share knowledge and news with today’s consumers. Sadly, our industry is rife with unscrupulous practitioners and Spex Hair is fiercely protective of those who always try to do the right thing.

By his own admission, “The hair loss industry preys on your vulnerability and isolation.” Equally ashamed of this aspect and determined to turn it around, Spex Hair has built a fine career out of being a media spokesperson. Additionally, he shares information by keeping his own website, Spex Hair, up to date, and through his podcast The Bald Truth UK Radio show that he is the co-host of and on social media as well as regularly appearing in the mainstream media.

Spex Hair keeps consumers in the know about hair transplant excellence but also advocates that surgery should always be a last resort. If and when a consumer has exhausted all other avenues of hair loss treatment, he guides consumers towards the very best in the industry. The Top 25 Hair Transplant Surgeons list forms one part of that wealth of knowledge.

Thanks to Spencer Stevenson, consumers are now able to make decisions based on fact, integrity and truth, rather than relying on ‘lowest common denominator’ practitioners who prey on the vulnerable. As one who makes it my life’s work to provide my patients with transformative treatments that cause no harm, I am truly honoured to have been mentioned on this list.

Spex Hair Interview with Spencer Kobren


Can there be complications with a hair transplant?

Complications are patient and doctor independent conditions.

Well, depending on the doctor’s experience and the characteristics of the patient, it can be minimized, but it cannot be considered impossible to occur. As with any medical intervention, there are some complications with hair transplantation. Many of these are due to local anesthesia and surgery.

What complications will occur during or after the operation?

Local anesthesia is the most common and inevitable method for the patient to perform a comfortable and painless operation. Similar to the methods used in hair transplants, various instruments for local anesthesia have been developed today.

Even with the most modern tools, complications cannot be completely prevented.

HYPOTENSION-HYPERTENSION-HYPOGLYCAEMIA-HYPERGLYCAEMIA are the most common diseases that can cause problems and shortness of breath during local anesthesia. For this reason, the doctor should ensure that the patient is suitable for local anesthesia prior to hair transplantation.

These complications can occur during the hair transplant and can be corrected immediately by the doctor. However, the most common complications associated with hair transplantation were post-operative complications. The most common situations after the treatment is that the hair density result does not meet the patient’s expectations, in addition to constant numbness in the skin, infection and nerve damage.

However, these are not unsurpassable cases for a professional doctor, and they can be kept to a minimum. Therefore, he asks for a detailed medical history of the patient, does a hair analysis, researches the dermatological and systematic diseases and the most important ones and takes the patient’s blood sample. In this way, possible complications for the patient can be avoided as far as possible. This type of procedure avoids possible patient complications as much as possible


Exercise and hair loss

Exercise is one of the most important factors in your hair health.

For healthier and livelier hair. It is not always enough to follow a proper nutritional program, to use natural hair products and not to have any health problems, active sport can indirectly influence hair loss. Although in today’s conditions it does not seem possible to exercise regularly and eat healthily. You can achieve this by making slight changes in your daily life.

The point to keep in mind here is to do the sport you enjoy. How does exercise affect our hair health? The problem I want to mention here is the effect of sport on stress. Stress affects our entire body, including our hair, of course. Stress is one of the factors that trigger androgenetic hair loss.

When we exercise, more serotonin is produced, which reduces stress in the body, the blood circulation is increased and the hair follicles are nourished. Accordingly, it is believed that hair loss will be less.



It is important to use shampoo to clean strands of hair and the surface of the hair.

However, it is important to choose the right shampoo for your hair type. Choosing the right shampoo ensures that hair is healthy, while choosing the wrong shampoo can lead to hair loss. The health of the scalp is very important. The cleaner and healthier the scalp, the healthier the hair. If the shampoo is chosen incorrectly, the hair may remain too greasy or dry.

In this case, the scalp is damaged and loss occurs. It is important to consider your hair structure and properties when choosing shampoos for living and healthy hair. You can even get help from a doctor. One of the most common mistakes when using shampoo is that everyone in the household uses the same shampoo.

The hair quality and the specificity of the scalp are different for everyone. The pH of shampoos is one of the most important factors in hair loss. For this reason, it is necessary for your hair health to choose organic shampoos that contain the most suitable components for your hair type. In addition, there are more effective treatments available than shampoos.

You should definitely plan the shampoo for you and your treatment modality that is required for your hair loss problem with a reliable doctor.
