    There are 6.5 billion people in the world and over 300 different ethnicities. Should all ethnicities have the same transplant?

    No, of course not! Dr. Lam frequently performs hair restoration in all ethnicities including Caucasian, African-American, Asian, Middle Eastern, Indian/Pakistani, etc. There are so many differences that must be considered for each ethnicity in order to achieve natural results with safe outcomes. For example, the very curly African hair with straight hairlines differs remarkably from the very straight Asian hairs with rounded hairlines.

    The human body has an amazing power to heal itself… and sometimes it needs a little help. What are the products Dr. Lam uses to improve hair growth and hair survival?

    There are many surgical and non-surgical options to promote hair growth. Sometimes hairs need a fertilizer like PRP to help them grow and other times they need an enzyme blocker like topical finasteride to allow them to grow freely. Not all PRP injections are the same and not all topical treatments produce good results. When performing hair transplant surgery, Dr. Lam uses multiple products to improve hair survival including PRP, ACell, liposomal ATP, and HypoThermosol. He believes great results require not only a great surgeon but also modern technology for optimal hair survival.

    Waited Too Long To Fix Your Hair Loss? No Worries. Our Mega Hair Transplant Can Get You Covered

    A typical hair transplant restores 1,500 – 2,000 grafts and covers either the frontal or crown area. A megasession hair transplant describes a transplant of 3,000 hair grafts or more and, in most cases, involves transplanting the entire top of the head in a single session. To be able to move 3,000+ grafts (6,000 to 7,000 hairs) takes the right patient, the right surgeon, and the right team. You must have an enough donor hairs and work with a team that can process the grafts in a reasonable timeframe, and a surgeon who can design and distribute where the grafts go in a way for an optimal outcome after a single hair-transplant session.

    Did You Know That To Have A Youthful Hairline You Also Need Youthful Temporal Points?

    Temporal points are small triangles of hairs located above your sideburns that give a full frame to your face. Many surgeons only perform hair transplants along the hairline and in the central scalp. However, the temples and temporal points can be an important area to rebuild in order to provide the most youthful frame to the face. Also, if the hairline is brought significantly forward without rebuilding the temples, the result can look unnatural. Temporal points have a unique hair-growth pattern, and its reconstruction is a very advanced surgical procedure that requires the most skilled hands. Dr. Lam regularly creates aesthetically pleasing and the most natural-appearing temporal points for his patients.

    You May Not Be Royalty, But You Can Wear Your Crown Proudly

    The crown, or vertex, describes the circular area of hair or hair loss in the back of the head. Not everyone is a candidate for hair restoration in the crown, and not every surgeon is skillful in restoring hair loss in the crown. The crown has a unique cowlick that allows for hairs to swirl and cover a round scalp, thereby posing a challenge in performing quality hair restoration. Dr. Lam is skilled in achieving the most natural and the densest crown results in a single session through a careful design strategy on which he has lectured and written extensively.
