After his degree in Medicine and Surgery at the University of Perugia, Dr. De Fazio completed a post graduate qualification with full marks in General Surgery and a further qualification in Medicine and Plastic Surgery and Hair Loss Surgery.
He also became a member of the teaching staff in the faculty of Medicine and Surgery in Perugia with particular emphasis on Maxillo-Facial surgery. Afterwards he became an effective member of the examination committee for degrees in Medicine and Surgery, Odontostomatology and Dental Implants.
At the beginning of 2000, the doctor started to develop and experiment on his own surgical technique that would allow the transplant of single hair follicles with results that exceeded existing standard hair transplant procedures. During the same period, he implemented a new rotating micro scalpel called Bulbix as well as an Implanter Bulbix – after just one year – that would allow hair transplants to reach the same bulbar depth as the donor area.
Dr. De Fazio is also one of the most expert users of Trichoscan – a microscopic computerized method used to perform an in-depth analysis of the hair and the scalp. He is also a member of the Testa Collo – Italian Society of Surgeons (SICTC), Italian Society of Surgery and Cosmetic Surgery (SIES) and the Italian Society of Hair Restoration (ISHR).
Over the years, he also became an author of numerous publications and he became known on regional television channels (in the regions of Umbria and Marche – Italy) as well as national channels, such as Mediaset, to participate as a guest and expert in Trichological Surgery. He attended around 250 congresses in Italy and abroad and he was also a speaker for 45 national and international congresses.
