What Are Your Hair Loss Solution Options? Let's Briefly Explore

Patients who visit our New Surgical Headquarters in Garden City, NY or Hair Loss Clinics in Manhattan, NY; Boston, MA; or Short Hills, NJ have a wide range of treatment options. We offer surgical and non-surgical treatments and may recommend combining procedures to achieve the best results. Our board-certified surgeon (not a technician or robot) will recommend the right solution(s) based on your individual hair loss and your desired results. We currently offer:

Hair Transplantation - Surgical

Dr. Robert J. Dorin offers two forms of surgical hair transplantation options: Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).

During FUT, one of our medically licensed surgeons will remove a strip of tissue from your donor area (usually at the back or side of the head). Using ultra-delicate microscopic techniques, we then divide the strip into follicular unit grafts. Next, we transplant these grafts to the thinning areas.

FUE is a minimally invasive alternative to FUT. During an FUE session, a medically licensed doctor (not a technician or robot) will excise follicular units one at a time instead of removing a full strip from the scalp (as is done in FUT). Although FUE typically takes longer to perform than FUT, it also offers a faster recovery time, no stitches, and no linear scar.

Two PRP before and afters

PRP Therapy - Non-Surgical

If you prefer to forego a surgical hair transplant, you can also undergo medical therapy such as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy. PRP contains growth factors that can potentially address thinning hair by stimulating follicle stem cells in areas with hair loss. PRP can also be used intraoperatively, during a hair transplant procedure, to expedite healing and further promote new hair growth. PRP therapy can also be combined with ACell.  ACell is a cellular matrix that can revitalize hair follicle stem cells and stimulate additional hair growth. At The Hair Loss Doctors By Robert J. Dorin, our expertise has showed us that this form of PRP is most effective.


Laser Therapy - Non-Surgical

While medical studies on results vary, some patients, who prefer a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment, do experience hair regrowth with photobiomodulation (PBM) or low-level light therapy (LLLT) with laser or LEDs. For patients who want to undergo laser therapy at home, PBM-LLLT therapy caps are an alternative.

Prescription & Over-The-Counter Medications

In some cases, medication might be the best option for treating your hair loss condition. Depending on your condition, Dr. Dorin may prescribe medications like PROPECIA (a type of Finasteride), oral minoxidil, or topical finasteride. Over-the-counter (OTC) options such as ROGAINE® or generic minoxidil are also options. We recommend that you attend a virtual or in-person consultation, with Dr. Robert J. Dorin, before trying any OTC medication.

Your Hair Restoration Process A Step-by-Step Guide At The Hair Loss Doctors

Schedule Your Consultation

Before making any decisions about your treatment, it is important to attend an online or in-person consultation with Dr. Robert J. Dorin the Founder & Medical Director of The Hair Loss Doctors. We have three hair loss clinic locations throughout Greater New York City and one in Boston, MA and we offer convenient scheduling online or over the phone at (516) 214-6776 for your in-person or online consultation.

Attend Your Consultation

During your private in-person or virtual consultation, Dr. Robert J. Dorin will diagnose the cause(s) of your hair loss, listen to your specific goals, and design a customized treatment plan for you. Each treatment plan is carefully designed to achieve the best and most natural-looking results. Our consultations are very detailed and typically last 30 to 60-minutes. Please note: at this time, we will also evaluate your medical history.

Weigh Your Options 

To assist you in making an informed decision, Dr. Dorin will provide materials that contain information about the procedures and treatments we offer and detail the specific costs associated with your individualized treatment plan. After reviewing these materials, you can decide which treatment best fits your concerns, budget, and overall goals.

Prepare For Your Procedure

Once you decide that a hair transplant or non-surgical procedure is right for you, you will be given a detailed set of pre-operative instructions to enhance the likelihood of your upcoming surgery's safety and success. To reduce the risk of complications, during and after your surgery, Dr. Dorin may ask you to refrain from certain behaviors in the day or days preceding your procedure. 

Undergo The Procedure

If you are undergoing a hair transplant, Dr. Dorin will begin by applying a numbing anesthetic to block sensation to your scalp during the procedure. Each hair transplant session takes between five and eight hours to complete and we do everything we can to keep you comfortable during this time. If you are undergoing a non-surgical procedure or medical therapy, your treatment session will be much shorter. 

Your Recovery

Most patients can return to work within one or two days after their procedure, but others may need a few extra days of recovery time. Although most patients complete a full recovery within 10 to 12-days of their treatment, you should plan to take a few days off of work as a precaution. 

Your Aftercare

After a hair transplant, there may be some minor to moderate discomfort. You should avoid strenuous physical activity. You can begin exercising again once you are cleared to do so by Dr. Robert J. Dorin. 

Your Follow-Up Appointments

Dr. Dorin will recommend follow-up appointments every four-months, in the year following your treatment. It is important to note that patients with severe hair loss may need several sessions to achieve their desired results.

Still Have Questions? Here Are Some Of The FAQs We Receive

If you are considering hair restoration and have access to Greater NYC or Boston, MA, you may have many questions about your treatment, its costs, and its potential risks. To help you make an informed decision about your hair loss treatment options, Dr. Robert J. Dorin has compiled a list of answers to many of the most common questions he fields from patients. Our hope is that these answers can help you make an informed decision so you feel completely comfortable undergoing treatment at The Hair Loss Doctors.

Which procedure is right for me? 

With so many techniques and treatments to choose from, it can be difficult to determine which procedure is right for you. Dr. Dorin offers surgical and non-surgical hair loss treatments. If we determine that you are a good candidate for surgery (based on the extent of your hair loss and your individual goals), we may recommend FUE or FUT. Both treatments are highly effective for treating hair loss, but they are substantially different. Our doctor will discuss the pros and cons of each procedure with you during your in-person or virtual consultation at our one of our Greater New York City or Boston, MA hair loss clinics.

What are my treatment risks or complications?

All surgeries carry some degree of risk. In very rare cases, patients may experience infection, noticeable scarring, and numbness of the scalp. You can reduce your risk of complications by having your surgery performed by our board-certified surgeon as opposed to having your hair restoration procedure at a clinic where a robot, technicians or non-medical personnel perform your surgery (video).

Will my procedure hurt?

Dr. Robert J. Dorin will provide a topical anesthetic to keep your scalp numb, so you should expect little to no discomfort during the procedure. After the procedure, you can expect minor to moderate discomfort.

How long will it take me to recover ? 

There is no set answer to this as it depends on the individual. Accordingly, recovery time will depend on which type of procedure you undergo. However, in general, most patients are fully recovered in 10 to 14-days after a procedure.

I had the privilege of receiving a hair transplant from Dr. Robert Dorin three years ago, and I can confidently say that my experience and results have been nothing short of exceptional. Most of the barbers I've been to since the procedure haven't realized that I've had a hair transplant. Those who did notice were quick to mention that it's among the best they've ever seen.

Dr. Dorin is a master at his craft, he also a great guy. His staff is awesome as-well, everybody made me feel very comfortable during the procedure, which isn't easy given my high anxiety level. Dr. Dorin also does not ghost his patients, he gives you his personal cell number, any problems that arise you can message him. A+++++ all around.
