Dr. Melvin Mayer

Dr. Melvin Mayer – Bosley Medical San Diego Doctor

Melvin Mayer, M.D. first received his BA in Chemistry from Loma Linda University, in Riverside California, and went on to receive his M.D. from Loma Linda University School of Medicine.

Dr. Mayer first became interested in hair restoration during his 20th high school reunion when he was voted baldest in the class. This catalyst inspired him to learn more about hair restoration. He studied every book and article he could find, evaluating hair transplant physicians, their surgical techniques and the results they achieved. He used this information both personally and professionally. Dr. Mayer had the procedure himself and then decided to become a hair transplant surgeon. The experience provided him with a keen sense of what patients go through as they make decisions about their own hair loss.

In 1992, Dr. Mayer joined Medical Hair Restoration (now merged with Bosley) as a surgeon. "I joined MHR and later Bosley due to the high quality of work being done by those practices." he said.

Dr. Mayer's accomplished career is due to his philosophy for successful hair restoration surgery: honesty, top quality work, integrity, empathy and understanding. Having undergone the procedure himself, Dr. Mayer has a greater sensitivity toward his patients. "I encourage my patients to start early in their process of hair restoration. By waiting too long myself, I was almost bald before I turned to hair restoration."

"One of my most memorable and satisfying experiences was working with a patient who first had hair restoration surgery when he was 18 years old," Dr. Mayer recalled. "He had large plugs placed in his temporal region by another surgeon. By the time he came to me 12 years later, he had balded away from the plugs. The situation had him extremely depressed. He hadn't been out in public without a hat in 10 years. I restored the hair and connected or removed the previous plugs, which resulted in a complete transformation of his self-esteem."

Dr. Melvin Meyer is a Diplomat of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery, and the American Board of Family Medicine. He is an oral examiner and is in the exam committee of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery. He has been a President, a Vice President, a Treasurer, and a Secretary of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery and is one of the founding members of the American Society of Hair Restoration Surgery. He is also in the National Board of Medical Examiners, and is a 2004 winner of the Platinum Follicle Award.

Dr. Mayer has written a handful of medical book publications. He has also written dozens of medical and secular journal articles and given even more presentations and lectures. Dr. Mayer has made many television appearances over the last 15 years.
