The days of rows of unnatural looking “hair plugs” are, fortunately, over. With advanced technology, refined techniques, and improved understanding of hair physiology, hair replacement can now appear utterly natural. Whether you are developing a bald spot, have an unsightly scar, your hair is thinning, or you have a receding hairline, a fuller, thicker, natural head of hair can be yours.


What causes hair loss?

Many factors can lead to hair loss. Most commonly, hair loss is genetically programmed, called “male pattern baldness” or “female pattern baldness.” In medical terms, this type of hair loss is called androgenetic alopecia. Hair loss can also be a side effect of certain medications or the result of trauma or stress. You naturally shed about 100 to 150 hairs per day, but when shedding is extreme with 50% or more of hair volume is lost, your hair will appear thin, lank, and lifeless.

What is the growth cycle of hair?

Hair goes through a natural cycle of growth (anagen), transition (catagen), and resting, and finally shedding (telogen). Roughly 80 to 90 percent of your hair is in the active growth cycle at any given time. Any environmental, medical, or genetic factor that shortens the time in the active growth phase will lead to shorter, thinner hair. Extensive shortening of the active growth phase causes “miniaturization” of the hair follicles. Finally, the hair follicle stops producing hair.

Hairline lowering

A surgical procedure can be performed to lower the hairline. This procedure can resolve the look of a forehead that is too high for the facial features. If you feel your forehead is too high, or want to feminize your facial appearance, hairline lowering surgery creates a far softer, more attractive appearance.

Body hair transplant

In some cases, an insufficient quantity of healthy hair follicles is available at the back or sides of the scalp to harvest. In these cases, body hair can be collected and transplanted to fill in the thinning area. Body hair may be harvested from the upper chest, back, abdomen, armpits, arms, or legs.

Medical therapy

Hair growth medications are available and produce excellent results for many people who are struggling with hair loss. The two FDA-approved hair growth medications are minoxidil (Rogaine), and finasteride (Propecia). PRP hair restoration is a regenerative treatment to trigger dying hair follicles to restore and produce thicker hair. Every patient responds differently to medication or regenerative therapies. Women cannot take Propecia.
