Article Body:
Out of the hundreds of procedures he performs each year, the last thing hair-transplant surgeon Dr. Robert
Dorin expected to do was perform surgery on his father.


Robert M. Dorin Sr. had been losing his hair for many years, but few people knew how much it bothered
him. Then, one day at a family function, the elder Dorin casually mentioned to his son that he was
considering treatment.


"It surprised me because my father knew what type of work I do and he never said anything," Dorin said.


Caught unawares, Dorin was nevertheless delighted that his father was taking matters into his own hands.
"My father's hair loss finally reached a point where most of the hair in the frontal area had fallen out," he
said.


So Dorin decided to come up with a surprise of his own.


"Given that it was a week before my dad's birthday, I figured it was a great opportunity to give him a gift
that he would enjoy for the rest of his life," he said. "I scheduled a procedure for my father for the very next
week."


On the day of the surgery, the two discussed the details of the procedure and what to expect.


"I could feel and see my dad's excitement grow as things took shape," Dorin said. "He realized just how
much hair he had lost over the years and how much I would be able to put back in just one procedure."


The procedure required 1,571 hair-transplant grafts and took about 7 hours. Three weeks later, there are no
telltale signs of the hair transplant. He should begin enjoying his new look in three to six months.


"Working on my dad was something extra special for me," Dorin said. "It was an honor to be able to do
something that would have a lasting, positive impact on his life. It is very similar to the way his actions and
support have shaped my life."
