What Can Hair Restoration Do?

At the Quatela Center, hair restoration encompasses surgical and nonsurgical solutions for men and women experiencing hair loss. Whatever the option, our team strives to help each patient have a fuller head of their own natural hair in a variety of ways, including:

  • Slowing the rate of hair loss
  • Improving the quality and quantity of hair on the scalp
  • Filling in a receding hairline, thinning areas, and bald spots
  • Improving the results of a procedure performed elsewhere

What’s the Best Hair Restoration Technique?

Innovations in hair transplant surgery such as follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE) produce excellent results when performed by a plastic surgeon with exceptional credentials and experience such as those at the Quatela Center. We also offer nonsurgical approaches to hair restoration for people who might not be interested in or do not qualify for hair transplant surgery. Our experienced surgeons recommend the best approach for each patient’s situation based on their needs, preferences, and cosmetic goals.

Hair Restoration Options at the Quatela Center

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
