Before & After

Hair Transplant in Long Island

 Dr. Doshi invites you to his offices to get a hair consulation for a hair transplant in Long Island, where you can learn about several options that’ll restore and rejuvenate your appearance by bringing your full head of hair back to its former glory.

Whether you’ve been experiencing hair loss due to hormone-related changes in your body, the aging process, an accident, or simple genetics, Dr. Doshi can help you regain your confidence and love the way you look, with a hair transplant procedure.

Is a Hair Transplant in Long Island Right for Me?

If you’ve been experiencing hair loss, you’re a great candidate to receive the best hair transplant in Long Island by Dr. Doshi. Hair loss can come for us all, so there’s no limit when it comes to age or gender, as far as a hair transplant procedure is concerned.

You will, however, need to have a good amount of hair available on the sides and back of your head, as these are typically the areas from which we’ll transplant the hair. These donor areas will need to offer adequate growth. Dr. Doshi, a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, will work closely with you to help you determine whether or not hair transplant surgery is right for you.

What is the cause of hair loss?

There are many factors contributing to hair loss, including poor genes, aging, disease and injury, and environmental stressors. Many men suffer from male pattern baldness (MPB), which originates in hormonal changes brought about by aging. The hormone DHT shrinks the hair follicles, halting the growth of new hairs. Women’s hair loss can also be caused by hormonal changes, but often manifests more as thinning than balding. Dr. Doshi will examine your scalp during your private consultation and will delve into the root causes of your hair loss at that time.

How long does a hair transplant procedure last?

To Dr. Doshi, who has offices in Long Island, hair transplants are personalized procedures, so each person’s treatment will take a different amount of time, depending on the number of grafts they require to achieve their desired cosmetic results. Most sessions take 4-7 hours, depending on the method used. Obtaining 1500-3000 hair grafts may take an entire day at an outpatient location. If you undergo a graft of 500 hairs, you will be finished within just a few hours.

More About the Hair Transplant Procedure

There are actually a variety of different hair transplant procedures Dr. Doshi can use in his offices. The procedure chosen will depend on your specific body type, the size of the treatment area, and the severity of the hair loss Dr. Doshi will be treating.

FUE Transplant Procedure

Also known as “follicular unit extraction,” the FUE transplant procedure involves the harvesting of hair follicles from one part of the scalp before transplanting them to the area that is experiencing hair loss. A new hairline will be created as each new follicle is transplanted to the new area.

FUT Transplant Procedure

Also known as “follicular unit transplantation,” the FUT transplant procedure is slightly different from the FUE transplant procedure. In an FUT transplant procedure, a much larger number of follicles are removed and transplanted at one. This procedure is generally utilized when a larger area is being treated at once.

Robotic Transplant

The robotic transplant procedure utilizes the follicular unit extraction (or FUE) method, but involves a robotic unit that brings an extra degree of precision to to the table. Image-guided robotic alignment means you get a much more precise hairline, without the need for any linear scarring.

Eyebrow and Beard Transplant

If you’re experiencing any thinning or hair loss on other parts of the face — such as the eyebrows or beard — Dr. Doshi can utilize hair transplant procedures to restore these areas to their former fullness.

Scalp Micropigmentation

Essentially a tattoo procedure that is applied directly to the scalp, micropigmentation gives the appearance of closely-trimmed hair follicles. This is a great way to enhance a hair transplant procedure, or it can even act as a hair transplant alternative, as well.

What’s the Recovery Process Like?

Most patients experience a relatively mild amount of tenderness and pain in their scalp area after their treatment, which fades within the first several days. Of course, the specifics of your procedure will dictate your exact recovery process, and Dr. Doshi will work closely with you to ensure that you know what to expect as you recover.

Hair transplant FAQ

How natural will my hair look after treatment?

Dr. Doshi has a discerning, artistic eye and will do everything possible to ensure a natural look you will love. He understands how painful hair loss can be, and how important it is to regain your sense of confidence in how you look. Dr. Doshi’s state of the art hair transplantation methods include cutting edge robotic transfer, as well as FUT and FUE transplants in Long Island. He will choose the method he feels will give you the most authentic-looking outcome.

What are the limitations after my procedure?

Depending on what method of hair transplantation Dr. Doshi uses, your postoperative instructions will vary. FUT treatment using hair strips will require a longer recovery period, while FUE methods may take less time. Most clients can resume showering and shampooing within 48 hours after treatment. Dr. Doshi will make sure you receive a detailed aftercare plan that outlines what you can and cannot do after hair transplantation.

When can I expect my new hair to start growing in?

In general, it takes 3-5 months for the new hair follicles to begin producing hairs. The average hair growth is about a half inch per month at first, but over time this may increase. After one year, your new hair will have normalized its cycle and it will continue to grow consistently over the long term.
