-Hair restoration option results in natural-looking hair growth. Through techniques known as Follicular Unit Transfer (FUT) and/or Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) which move individual hair follicles from an area of greater density on the back of the scalp to areas that have thinned over time, I am able to achieve a look that gives your hair improved thickness while appearing completely natural.

-With hair transplantation alone, patients typically start to see hair growth 3-4 months after their procedure, but I customize treatment plans with the latest techniques like PRP (platelet-rich plasma), laser technology and oral medication to significantly improve and speed up your growth process.

-Downtime is minimal. Patients can return to normal light activities and even work after a day or two.

-This procedure is completely safe and natural.


-Patients may experience some itching and possible numbness in the areas of the scalp.

-Minor chances of infection.

-Patients must be in good health. I will review your medical history and perform a physical exam during the consultation. Be prepared to answer questions about current and past medical conditions. Talk about any medications you are currently taking or have taken recently, as well as any surgeries you have had. It is extremely important for me to know if you are allergic to any medications.

-You must have realistic goals and expectations.
