The Foundation for Hair Restoration is committed to providing the very finest in hair restoration in an ethical, professional, and safe environment.
While a personal consultation with Dr. Epstein in his Miami and New York City office is not always possible, he also offers consults in Tampa. More commonly for most patients, your entire procedure can be planned without meeting Dr. Epstein in person until the day of or day before your procedure – rather, by sending photographs along with information about yourself including your goals. You will be assigned a patient advisor who will guide you through the entire process and arrange for Dr. Epstein or Dr. Bared to evaluate your photos and/or to have a Skype® webcam consultation. In either case, your entire procedure can be planned through a combination of personal emails, webcams, and/or phone calls with the doctor and your patient advisor. Your visit to our web site is a great learning experience – providing you with the opportunity to learn about the work being done for individuals like yourself, by the Foundation for Hair Restoration, and to see just how good you can look.
An overwhelming majority of our patients achieve outstanding, industry leading regrowth percentages of transplanted hairs. With that said, in the area of medicine results are not fully predictable- this is true in hair transplantation as well. By adhering to the very highest standards, our typical patient experiences a hair growth rate of 95% ON AVERAGE, results that match or exceed the leaders in this profession and have donor site scars that heal as fine lines measuring 1-2 mm in width or narrower in 90% of cases. To help assure the very best results, Dr. Epstein has a team of 15 full-time hair assistants, who average working with Dr. Epstein for over 9 years! These assistants are professionals, committed to perfection, and caring and kind. In our annual patient satisfaction surveys, patients rate their hair transplant experience to be a positive or extremely positive overall experience 97% of the time. In addition and this is perhaps where we stand out Dr. Epstein’s reputation is for creating undetectable, natural appearing hairlines.
The FHR hair assistants each have specialized roles. Some are graft dissectors, working under the microscope to cut every graft. Several are “sliver-ers”, carefully dividing the donor strip into thin slivers one follicular unit wide, to assure the lowest percentage of hair transection. Some of the most experienced assistants meaning 8 or more years with Dr. Epstein are planters, intimately familiar with how Dr. Epstein distributes the one, two, and three hair grafts to achieve the most natural appearance. There are also specialized assistants at the FHR for eyebrow and beard transplants, delicate procedures in which Dr. Epstein specializes, as well as others that assist him with the FUE incision-less procedures, all assuring patients the best results.
There is the rare patient who has a lower than expected rate of growth due to no fault of the doctor or patient. There is even a scientific term for this event called the “X” factor which offers theories but no solid explanation for its occurrence. We are 100% committed to your complete satisfaction as a patient, which helps to explain our positive feedback, continued growth, and an impressive list of patient referrals with which you may speak.
