Hair restoration surgery with The Youth Fountain is an outpatient procedure that transforms your scalp immediately. The process uses tiny incisions that leave no scarring, so full recovery only takes about a week. After just seven days, people won’t even know that you’ve had the procedure done.

The Procedure

FUE/FUT Hair Transplant

  • Doctor Maps Out
    Treatment Area

    The Youth Fountain’s hair restoration procedure starts with Dr. Shakov mapping out the area for treatment. Tracking the patterning of your hair follicles, he will design a treatment that matches your natural hair growth. He will match the density, direction, and hairline that will look and feel the most real for your hair. He will determine both where to source and where to place your hair follicles.

  • Follicles Removed
    From Existing Hair

    Using a precision tool with a 1mm diameter, Dr. Shakov will cut a small incision around the hair follicle from the source region. He will then extract the full follicle with a small tweezer-like tool for placement in the new area. The incisions are so tiny they do not leave any scarring and during the procedure, you will not feel any pain. The area is shaved first, the doctor uses a local anesthetic, and only the strongest, healthiest hair follicles are extracted from the back of the head.

  • Hair Follicles Placed
    in Balding Area

    The follicles are then prepped for ultimate hair growth and sorted by the number of hair shafts. Once the doctor has extracted the follicle, he will make a tiny incision and determine which follicles will look best in the area. He will then carefully transplant the follicle into the incision. This process also leaves no scarring and does not cause any pain during the treatment. During this process, the doctor will follow the direction of hair growth so that it looks as natural as possible.

  • 7-Day Recovery,
    6-Month Full Growth

    Once The Youth Fountain’s outpatient hair transplantation procedure is done, you will experience a very short recovery time. Many of our patients’ only report mild discomfort after the treatment and will even return to work the next day. After just a week’s time, the surgical areas will be completely healed and your new hair follicles will begin the process of growing in naturally. Most patients experience full hair growth between 6-9 and months after the procedure is complete. Depending on your unique growth cycle, you may even see results quicker. Once fully grown, your new hair can be cut, colored, and styled like the rest of your natural hair. Without scars or an unnatural appearance, no one will ever know that you had the surgery done.

Frequently Asked Questions


  • What Does Hair Restoration Cost?

    Hair restoration using FUE or FUT is very affordable and is a one-time expense. However since no two-hair restoration procedures are the same, the cost varies by patient. When you meet for a consultation at our Freehold, NJ office, Dr. Shakov will go over the treatment options and costs to meet your goals and budget.

  • Can I Use Hair Follicles from Other Areas Of My Body?

    In extreme hair loss cases, we can use hair follicles from other areas of the body. However, we use hair from your scalp to match the color, texture, and patterning of your natural hair. Most patients do not need to source their hair from other areas and maybe surprised to learn their scalp hair is best. When you meet for a consultation, you will learn what sourcing options are best for your hair.

  • Can I Wear My Hair Short After Transplantation?

    FUE does not cause any scarring on your scalp. So patients can wear their hair as short as they want, even in a buzzcut! If you opt for FUT procedure, you may have a very thin, 1mm or less scar depending on how you specifically heal. Depending on the appearance of this scar, you still may be able to wear your hair short.

  • Does Hair Transplantation Hurt?

    During the procedure, you will be administered a local anesthetic, so the hair transplantation surgery itself is not painful. Once the anesthesia wears off, the tiny incisions may be tender and red in the sourcing and transplant areas. For the most part, our patients report only mild discomfort after the procedure and full recovery happens after a week.

  • How Quickly Will I See My New Hair?

    After the recovery period, you will see your new hairs and what your hairline will look like. How your hair grows depends entirely on the hair growth cycle of the follicle. Everyone is different. Some people see full hair growth after only 3 months, while others see full hair growth after 9 months.

  • Why Should I Choose The Youth Fountain For Hair Recovery?

    The Youth Fountain is the premiere hair restoration center in the Freehold, NJ region. Dr. Shakov is highly-trained in the most modern hair transplantation methods to ensure that when the surgery is complete, you not only have a natural head of hair, but no one will ever be able to tell you had the surgery.
