Thomas A Law, MD, has made a name for himself with his steady, precise hands. The honorably discharged major in the US Army Medical Corps and former piano player entered the Army Reserve in 1980 and later went on to become a flight surgeon and an emergency-room physician with the Army. He even earned the expert-marksman award at the pistol range on his first attempt. Now, Dr. Law uses his nimble fingers to transplant hair.
He has developed an international reputation for his meticulous and creative approach to hair transplantation. Using either one of two methods depending on the client's needs. Dr. Law can harvest individual follicles with the follicular-unit-extraction technique or surgically remove and divide thin strips of hair with the follicular-unit-transplantation process. Both methods take advantage of a horseshoe-shaped donor area at the back of the head where an abundance of "lifelong" hair follicles are typically found. Much like a BFF necklace from his best friend, these follicles are always there on virtually every man.
When Dr. W. Mark Warfel was in high school, his talent as a sculptor earned him a scholarship to art school. In addition to learning the finer points of color and composition in his studio-art classes, he pursued a premed degree. After college came medical school, followed by multiple residencies, and today he's a plastic surgeon with his own practice.
Dr. Warfel's background, like the baking-soda volcano Michelangelo glued to the Sistine Chapel, represents the intersection of art and science. He uses what he learned in both fields to craft new looks for patients. He also continues to refine his techniques to ensure safe, minimally invasive procedures. His face-lifts, for instance, leave smaller scars than ones using traditional methods. Patients can also opt for nonsurgical services, such as laser skin resurfacing, to achieve fresher, more youthful-looking complexions with little downtime.
