Career and Qualifications

Dr. Shahmalak got certified in general surgery and in 1990, moved to Ireland taking the position of Senior House Officer in General Surgery. In 1997, he got another General Surgery qualification—a Specialist Registrar—becoming an FRCS fellow in 1995. In 1996, Dr. Shahmalak moved to the United Kingdom and worked in the NHS general surgery for 15 years.

In 2006, Dr. Shahmalak began a private hair transplant surgery practice, and his practice primarily offers FUT and FUE techniques. He has over 3,300 grafts per session. He has treated various high-profile celebrities and industry leaders, including Dr. Christian Jessen, the medical broadcaster, known for Embarrassing Bodies in Channel 4.


Dr. Shahmalak is participating in a hair follicle analysis project, partnering with a team at University of Manchester Dermatology Research Center. The research group has Professor Ralf Paus as its head and investigates the pathology and biology of hair follicles as microcosmic mini-organs where many of the essential biological problems can be reviewed in an outstanding manner.

The team’s pioneering work examined hair follicle biology – particularly examining what influences its growth and what epithelial stem cell numbers do. The team analyzed the pathology and biology of hair follicles as microcosmic mini-organs. Many of the essential biological problems can be explored in an illustrative manner.

The research comprised inquiries into the human hair follicle neuroendocrine properties, their effect on the mitochondrial process and the immune status of hair follicles, and the help of stem cells populations (adult) associated with the human skin appendages in regenerative medicine objectives. The Manchester University scheme, directed by Dr. Hawkshaw and colleagues, broadcasted their results in May 2018. It was that a prescription originally developed as a remedy for osteoporosis was shown to have a surprising stimulatory outcome on hair follicles given by patients going through hair transplantation surgery.

Androgenetic alopecia or male pattern baldness can be treated using only two drugs: Finasteride and Minoxidil, or through hair transplantation surgery. However, researchers from the University of Manchester are exploring new ways to stimulate human hair growth.

The researchers discovered that a drug primarily used for treating osteoporosis called WAY-316606 could potentially treat baldness by blocking a natural protein that inhibits hair growth and causes male baldness. This development has given hope to experts who believe that the drug can benefit millions of men who suffer from hair loss.

The study involved hair follicles taken from over 40 balding men who were undergoing treatment at Crown Clinic with Dr. Shahmalak. After being treated with the drug, their hair follicles started growing hair within just a few days, which is a promising sign for this new approach to treating baldness.
