He is often in demand to explain new innovations in hair transplantation at international conferences.
This month, Aesthetics magazine, the monthly journal for medical aesthetic professionals, asked Mr Shahmalak to write a three page guide to eyelash transplants– a procedure he first introduced to the UK way back in 2009.
Mr Shahmalak achieved huge national publicity when he became the first surgeon in the UK to perform the operation – on a young woman from Greater Manchester. You can see from the pictures here how she benefited from the procedure.
The article in Aesthetics gave Mr Shahmalak the chance to explain in detail how introduced the procedure to the UK and how dozens of patients have benefited from his expertise.
Mr Shahmalak explained how he had spent £50,000 of his own money taking a team from Crown Clinic to his native Pakistan to perform eyelash, eyebrow and hair transplants on women horrifically scarred in acid attacks.
He also detailed how the eyelash technique is used to help patients in the UK – some of whom are so embarrassed by the damage they have done to their eyelashes that they are too afraid to leave the house without wearing false eyelashes.
You can see the first page of the Aesthetics article on this page here and it is available in the March edition of the excellent magazine now.
But he loves to pioneer new techniques and quite rightly is very proud of the fact that he made a little bit of medical history when he performed that first eyelash transplant operation seven years ago.
