FAQ

What Is Hair Transplantation?

Hair transplantation is a minor surgical procedure, performed in the doctor's specially equipped office, where healthy hair is taken from the horseshoe fringe on the back and sides of the scalp and artistically placed throughout balding areas.

Will The Hairline Look Plugged?

No. We exclusively use only micro and mini grafts, where each graft contains 1-3 hairs. Each graft is artistically placed by your doctor, resulting in a completely natural look with no visible evidence of surgery.

How Long Does The Procedure Take?

The procedure takes about two hours. There is no bleeding and bandages are not required after the procedure. You may even shampoo very gently the day after the transplant.

When Can I Return To Normal Activity?

Normal activity, short of strenuous exercise, can be resumed immediately. Complete information about preparing for the procedure and care after the procedure will be given to you by the doctor when you meet for your appointment.

How Many Years Will Transplanted Hair Last?

Transplanted hair should last a lifetime, or at least as long as hair remains in the area from which the transplants were taken. The conclusion is based on our own experience with over 10,000 successful patients over 30 years.

Is The Procedure Painful?

No more so than a visit to the dentist. Seldom is there actual pain after the procedure.

Should I Wait For My Baldness To Advance Before Getting Transplants?

No. Many patients choose to gradually fill balding or thinning areas while there is still hair in the area to serve as camouflage. Their hairline and overall appearance never has changed, and friends never suspected they were having the procedure.

Can You Repair An Unsatisfactory Result From Another Doctor?

Yes, we have been called upon to do so many times in the past, with excellent results. We are able to work between existing hairs with great precision for optimal corrective outcomes.

Why Don't More Doctors Perform The Procedure?

Tremendous technical skill combined with artistic talent and experience is required to perform hair transplants. Establishing a reputation, as we have, takes more than slick advertising and a catchy slogan. We have pioneered advances, including the use of laser, in our 30 years and lecture nationally on our techniques. We are proven leaders and our results show it.
