How It Works

In-Office Consultation

The procedure will start with an in-office consultation with Dr. Shakov. During the consultation he will evaluate the unique circumstances of your hair loss and recommend a treatment plan. During the consultation, feel free to ask any questions or experience any concerns you may have about the procedure. We are happy to answer any question that you have about the process.

Hair Restoration Procedure

The procedure is a hair grafting method that takes your natural hair follicles from a hairy region of your scalp and transplanted directly into your balding areas. The FUE method uses a series of small incisions during the transplantation. The procedure is an outpatient surgery that is pain free. The length of the procedure depends on the amount of area that needs to be covered.

Follow Up & Recovery

Since the procedure is minimally invasive; the full recovery period is only about a week. Most patients only report slight discomfort after the surgery, and many have even returned to work after a day so we can review the surgery and evaluate the healing process. We typically recommend you come into The Youth Fountain for a follow-up after ten days. Hair growth can often be seen after 3 months, but most patients will experience full growth in the transplant area after 6-9 months.
