I am a white male experiencing a typical pattern of balding. I’d like to get this fixed. What procedures are available for me?
Q1: Is the consultation free?
Q2: Can a procedure be booked the same day as the consultation, if the patient lives out of town?
Q3: How long before a patient can fly?
Q4: How many procedures does a patient need on average?
Q5: What is the success rate of your clients?
Will Dr. Epstein be present and in charge throughout my procedure?
I am the only surgeon in my office. I personally do all of the work on you, from removal of the donor strip with closure, to the making of every recipient site, and supervising the planting of the grafts that is primarily done by 6 of my 18 full time assistants. I personally make sure that all grafts are placed correctly, and throughout your procedure I continually make additional recipient sites to make sure the hairline and entire restoration is done to my highest standards.
Should there be any concerns if pimples occur some time after a hair transplant?
Typically if pimples are going to occur, it will be at around 3 to 5 months post procedure, as the hairs start to regrow. For most patients this is usually several pimples at a time, which are best treated with topical antibiotic ointment, heat pads, and if they are stubborn, a short course of an oral antibiotic.
I want to first start out by saying how I appreciate blogs like this on this website. To take this further, I’ve recently made one of the worst decisions ever by having a hair procedure done in one of those hair transplant franchise companies (in California). The biggest problem has been their lack of customer service and communication.
I have been on Propecia for 10 years. I was out of the country and lost the bottle, so was off of it for 5
weeks. When i got back I started up again, but now one month into restarting I am losing a ton of hair
throughout the scalp. It is now very noticeable. Does that mean I lost the “propecia hair” for good after
stopping for only 5 weeks? Will it come back now that I am back on it?
Will Transplantation Surgery give any side effects of existing hairs?
