Our Philosophy for Patient Care
There are still many misconceptions about hair transplantation and the results that can be achieved. Gone is the unnatural “pluggy” look of the pre 1990’s where large groups of hair were planted in rows resembling doll’s hair. Today the procedure has been refined to the point of microscopic dissection of individual follicular units and the meticulous transplantation of individual hair follicles containing just a single hair. “We perform ultra refined hair transplantation to create natural results,” says Dr. Goertz.
