Before & After

How does Dr. Halaas perform hair transplantation?

Hair transplantation surgery involves using the most advanced micro-graft techniques. Local anesthesia can be used, and any scarring that results is covered by the new hair growth. Whether you are losing hair on the back of your head, the top, or have a receding hairline, this hair restoration surgery can help stimulate healthy, robust new hair growth. Dr. Halaas has helped many men and women restore their confidence with hair transplantation surgery. 

What to expect in the consultation 

During your initial consultation with Dr. Halaas, she will examine your scalp and go over the best hair transplant options for you. She will work with you to understanding your aesthetic expectations so that she can match them to your medical history to create a viable plan, taking the time needed to take in your hair’s history and your personal goals to best understand where you will most benefit. Because sometimes other hair loss treatments go well with hair restoration surgery (including exosomes, platelet-rich plasma, vitamins, topicals, Keravive™, etc.), Dr. Halaas will also determine if these will work for your treatment plan.  

“Dr. Halaas has a great bedside manner. She makes you feel like you are her only patient.”
