Dr. Michael Hughes Describes the Utilization of the Vitruvian Method

AlviArmani, Beverly Hills hair transplant surgeon Dr. Michael Hughes, a board-certified general surgeon describes the AlviArmani Vitruvian Design and max FUE harvest techniques.

Our surgical techniques and Artistic Hairline design components were created from the work of Leonardo Da Vinci in La Divina Proporzione. With an algorithmic base, our founders further refined the proportions of beauty to encompass ethnocentric elements. Two decades of experience and a global presence have allowed us to afford our patients an artistic look and feel that goes beyond restoring their original hair and look. Our Hairline design formulas now allow us to spread this information to AlviArmani providers, bringing AlviArmani’s 20 years of experience in facial framing to many more deserving patients.

Vitruvian Man is a drawing by Leonardo da Vinci that depicts a nude man in two positions, inscribed in a circle and square, and meant to demonstrate the perfect ratios and proportions of human anatomy. The drawing was created around 1490 and is based on the writings of the ancient Roman architect Vitruvius.

"Vitruvian Man" created by Da Vinci. "Divine Proportion" a.k.a. 'golden ratio' occurs in many mathematical contexts. Archimedean and platonic solids are geometrically constructible using a straightedge and compass. His calculations were derived using the limit of ratios of consecutive terms in the Fibonacci number sequence 1,2,3,5,8,13 ... Each term beyond the second equals the sum of the previous two, and it is also the value of the most basic of continued fractions. Modern mathematics displays golden ratio occurrence in the description of fractals. Figures exhibit self-similarity, playing important roles in studying chaos and dynamical systems.
