Just received this email from Alvi Armani
DR. ANTONIO ALVI ARMANI, M.D.
Founder of Alvi Armani Hair Transplants
Returned to his Creator Friday 9th of March 2018
It's with the heaviest of hearts and an emotion that we have to announce the passing of Dr. Antonio Alvi Armani M.D., the founder of Alvi Armani hair transplants, after a prolonged battle with pancreatic cancer.
Our dear friend, mentor, leader, artist, and world-renowned surgeon. We cannot express what he has meant to all of us, to everyone on the Alvi Armani team, and to patients from around the world. Dr. Antonio Alvi Armani M.D. is the reason why those of us who work at Alvi Armani hair restoration are in a privileged position, impacting the lives of patients from across the globe with the highest skillset, and at the top of the hair restoration field. Dr. Armani is the reason why we continuously work to perfect ourselves as professionals and people, so that we can make a difference.
Commencing in 1999, Dr. Armani took the field of medical hair restoration by storm with undetectable natural results that were never seen before in the industry. He gave hope to thousands of patients across the planet, and revolutionized hair transplantation introducing and perfecting dense packing, artistic facial framing based on facial features and ethnicities, density capacities of +100 follicular units per square centimeter, temple angle closure and restoration, zero angulation grafting, and crown restoration - just to name some. In the year 2008 after extended research in the FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) procedure, Dr. Armani made the riskiest move of any hair restoration surgeon in the industry – he decided to stop using the strip extraction method and commenced offering only the FUE extraction method making his primary point of reference patient benefit. More significantly he was able to extract 3000 F.U. per session compared to a maximum of 500 FU per session that the competition could muster. It was a game-changer. Critics came from across the planet. Today FUE is the gold standard in hair restoration surgery across the world.
In order to produce quality results for his patients, Dr. Armani made significant financial and time investments into research. His research acclaims include projects on FUE hair transplantation extraction, natural hair grafting in recipient areas, natural hair angulation, hair allotransplantation, hair multiplication, genetic hair loss treatments, and organic cellular therapies – all of these producing several patent applications. He further applied his medical skills to influence a change in the hair care cosmetics business to produce Origenere, a natural, non-damaging, non-sls hair care cosmetic line formulated with natural actives to reinvigorate hair growth. Dr. Armani is also author of the book “How to Beat Hair Loss”.
Dr. Armani expanded the Alvi Armani brand across the world, Beverly Hills, Toronto, Dubai, Buenos Aires, and New Delhi, as well as many consultation centers worldwide. He personally selected and mentored all of Alvi Armani’s hair transplant surgeons across the world, spreading his know how to benefit patients in the four quarters of the planet.
He was never one dimensional and his other expertise included philanthropy, photography, poetry, film, and playwrights, particularly classical Italian Cinema. Dr. Baubac Hayatdavoudi M.D., Medical Director of Alvi Armani International, recalls a meeting he had with Dr. Armani and one of the biggest most renowned producers in Hollywood. True to Dr. Armani's nature, he took over the meeting and proceeded to instruct the producer as to what key components one should look for in a movie, and what artistic elements to highlight.
We have lost an amazing medical doctor, scientist and artist. As we reflect going forward, the whole team at Alvi Armani has taken the responsibility to uphold and increase the legacy that Dr. Antonio Alvi Armani has left behind. Every patient we engage, every graft we handle, every product we make, we appreciate and we are humbled by the unique position we have been placed in by God – to assist people like us in living a full, rewarding, and beautiful life. Today, as you read this email, we are working on a unique hair growth patented topical formula that will revolutionize the hair loss industry and relieve hair loss sufferers across the world. Yes, once again, this is one of Dr. Armani’s legacies.
We thank every patient for your continuous support.
