is an operation that takes hair from the back of the head
and moves it to the area of hair loss. The fringe (back and
sides) of hair on a balding scalp is known as donor dominant
hair which is the hair that will continue to grow throughout
the life of most men. The transplantation of this hair to a
bald area does not change its ability to grow.
Candidates for hair
transplant surgery are those individuals with hair loss that
have sufficient donor hair from the fringe of the scalp to

We endeavor to produce a
natural appearing hairline with single, one follicle (called
a follicular unit) graft. We move four to six times as much
hair as the standard approach, using
follicular unit grafts throughout
producing a completely natural result.

Artistry, Technique and Teamwork

the “combination grafting” (70-80% FU’s and 20-30% small
multi-FU grafts) approach.
