What are the primary procedures performed by your practice?
Hair restoration surgery is performed using the traditional strip harvest method and the newer follicular unit extraction (FUE) method. We perform micrograft hair restoration, where the smallest grafts are made. Micrograft hair restoration results in new hair that looks completely natural. We also offer other hair loss treatments including medications, laser therapy, and platelet-rich plasma injections.
Do you provide free consultations?
There is a charge for the consultation, but this cost is credited back to patients if they have surgery.
How long does a hair transplant procedure take?
The length of procedure depends on the type of surgery, the number of grafts, and the complexity of the case.
Are patients kept conscious during the procedure?
Yes. All hair restoration procedures are done under local anesthetic.
When will the newly transplanted hair start to grow?
Some transplanted hair grows immediately. However, the majority of the grafts will start growing in six to twelve months.
When can the patient resume normal activities (washing hair, going into the sun, etc.)?
Clients may wash their hair gently the next day. Strenuous activities can be resumed in two weeks.
Are there any simple outpatient procedures available?
The advantage of hair restoration surgery is that all procedures are done on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia.
