NBA Champion is the latest professional athlete to become a patient
NEWTON CENTER, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Brian Scalabrine, whose 11-year NBA career included stints with the
Boston Celtics, Brooklyn Nets and Chicago Bulls, recently had a hair
transplant procedure to preserve and grow his trademark orange locks.
The power forward turned Boston Celtics broadcaster recently underwent
the procedure with surgeons Dr. Robert Leonard and Dr. Matthew Lopresti
of Leonard Hair Transplant Associates, with offices in Massachusetts,
Rhode Island and New Hampshire.
Scalabrine joins a growing list of professional athletes and
broadcasters to endorse Leonard Hair Transplant Associates for its hair
restoration expertise. Current New England Patriots Rob Ninkovich and
Sebastian Vollmer, former Patriot Wes Welker and Boston broadcasters Tom
Curran and Tom Caron are among the many athletes and broadcasters that
rely on Leonard Hair Transplant Associates for their hair loss needs.
Two weeks following his initial consultation, Scalabrine underwent a
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant at Leonard Hair
Transplant Associates’ Newton, Massachusetts office. In this procedure,
Drs. Lopresti and Leonard transplant individual hair follicles from the
donor area to the area in need of restored hair.
Scalabrine first met with hair loss specialists Drs. Leonard and
Lopresti to square up his frontal hairline, which gets the most
attention when he is on camera as a broadcaster. “I am six feet, nine
inches tall, so the camera is almost always pointed up at me. There is a
certain amount of vanity in TV, and when people tune in, I want them to
be focused on what I am saying, and not on how my hair looks.”
“I am not here to tell people to seek treatment because I did. But, I do
encourage all men and women who have thought about hair loss to do the
research and know there are options available,” Scalabrine said. “If you
decide it’s a step you want to take, make the call. Drs. Leonard and
Lopresti will be upfront with you and help you decide the correct steps
With nearly 30 years of experience in cosmetic surgery, Dr. Robert
Leonard serves as New England’s foremost authority on hair restoration,
providing a much needed expertise in treating individuals concerned
about their thinning hair or baldness.
“More than 50 million men and 30 million women in the United States
suffer from hair loss,” said Dr. Leonard. “Many either don’t yet
recognize it or they are in denial. But, a free consultation will allow
us to immediately begin formulating a patient-specific course of action.”
