Millions of men and women struggle with reduced confidence and self-esteem because of natural hair loss.
Fortunately, the modern hair transplant methods used at our New York City practice can restore your hairline using your natural hair.
Drs. True and Dorin are two of the most respected hair transplant surgeons in the world. Explore how their treatments can help you...
The Benefits of Surgical Hair Transplantation
A hair transplant procedure at any of our offices throughout NYC, New York, or Boston uses your natural hair follicles taken directly from your scalp. There are no artificial materials or "plugs" that could be potentially harmful or produce unnatural-looking results.
After the recovery period following hair transplant surgery, our patients are able to treat their newly restored hair just like normal. You can brush it, wear it under a cap, and style it in different ways without worrying about pain, hair loss, or looking strange.
Hair loss can make you look older and lower your confidence. Once you are equipped with new hair thanks to a precisely planned and artistically performed hair transplant from True & Dorin, you can take on the world with higher self-esteem.
Natural-Looking Results: Hair Transplants by True & Dorin
Some people have a negative view of surgical hair restoration because of outdated methods that produce results that look unnatural and distinctly "transplant-like." However, hair transplant science has come a long way in recent decades, and two of the leaders in the exciting development of this field are Dr. Robert True and Dr. Robert Dorin.
Our board-certified surgeons have refined the traditional follicular unit transplantation (FUT) technique while also leading the development of the innovative follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique, both of which use a patient's natural hair follicles to produce a full, natural-looking head of hair.
Thanks to the tools and expertise used in every procedure we perform at our several hair restoration clinics located throughout greater NYC, New York, patients never have to worry about receiving results that won't last or will look like "plugs."

Hair Transplant Repair
Unfortunately, outdated methods have left many transplant patients with a distinctive “plug” look and other aesthetic issues. The hair transplant surgeons at True & Dorin Medical Group offer solutions to help these patients achieve natural-looking restoration. Using the latest techniques, we perform hair transplant repair to help patients in Manhattan and greater NYC achieve a softer, more natural-looking head of hair.
But what is a "bad" hair transplant?
Outdated Transplant Techniques that We Can Correct
Years ago, the common techniques for hair transplants were plug procedures, mini-grafts, and scalp reductions. Results were mixed, but the patient was frequently left with an unnatural-looking hairline, obvious “plugs,” and bald patches. Transplanted plug grafts were too large, with results that have been likened to doll hair. This is often referred to as "cobble-stoning.” Scalp reductions, which involved excising balding tissue, created many problems, including extensive scarring and an unnatural appearance. Mini-grafts were an improvement, but did not come close to yielding the natural-looking results that are possible today.
What can be done to repair disappointing results?
Transplant Repair Options
FUT and FUE technology can be used to significantly improve an unsatisfactory hair restoration result. By transplanting follicular grafts at the hairline, we can eliminate the “plug” look and reconstruct the hairline. FUE is also an effective method for camouflaging a large or linear donor scar.
Graft and Tissue Removal
In some cases, the best results are obtained by removing abnormal grafts and using follicular unit technology to redistribute and re-implant the hair. Also, scar tissue can be removed along with the grafts, improving the overall appearance of the scalp. We perform these removals at our offices throughout NYC, New York.
SMPAnother option for effectively concealing a widened donor scar is scalp micropigmentation (SMP). SMP is a permanent cosmetic tattoo that mimics the look of short hairs on a closely shaved scalp. It can be used to conceal scarring, and in some cases, is also used to improve the appearance of a patient’s thinning hair.

Hair Transplantation Risks
Surgical hair restoration is a safe treatment with a high success rate. However, as with any surgical procedure, there are some risks involved.
During your consultation, either Dr. True or Dr. Dorin will evaluate your personal needs and goals in an effort to determine whether a hair transplant is right for you. If you are interested in this hair loss treatment, your experienced surgeon at True & Dorin will carefully explain potential risks to you, which include:
Slight bleeding is expected, resulting in tiny scabs about 24 hours after surgery. The scabs should shed in about seven to 10 days. However, your transplants or incisions may bleed significantly from strenuous activity or incorrect placement, in which case you should consult with your surgeon immediately. To avoid this type of bleeding, hair transplant patients should refrain from intense physical exertion during recovery.
Patients are vulnerable to skin infections during the healing period. Fortunately, common infections can easily be treated by a doctor. In the rare event that a more serious condition results from a transplant issue, patients should seek emergency medical attention.
Some scarring will be unavoidable with certain techniques. Our hair loss doctors have great success in keeping scarring to a barely noticeable minimum, and we plan incisions so that any fine-line scar can ultimately be concealed beneath the hair.
Many hair transplant patients experience temporary numbness for two to three months after the procedure. A persistent lack of sensation in the transplant areas may be a sign of a problem.
Hair Transplant Failure
It is possible that the transplanted hair follicles will not survive the procedure. However, Drs. True and Dorin have a track record of success in performing hair transplantation that has given many patients a substantial boost in confidence.
