Plastic Surgery, Dermatology, and Hair Restoration
There have been some attempts to create a new medical board for hair restoration, but we believe this would not serve patients well. Hair restoration is a series of procedures and treatments, not a separate surgical field. The procedures used in hair restoration already fall under the established disciplines of dermatology and plastic surgery.
Dermatology treats conditions of the skin and hair. Dr. Susan Stewart is a board-certified dermatologist and works with patients to address the skin and hair changes that cause hair loss and thinning. She helps us find medical conditions that may cause hair loss or find medications that can halt or slow hair loss.
Plastic surgery, especially facial plastic surgery, focuses on surgical treatments for the face and scalp. Hair restoration surgery falls under this surgical specialty. Dr. Chaffoo is a triple board-certified plastic surgeon. He uses surgical techniques to restore the hairline and create attractive aesthetic results.
Our center is unique because we address hair loss by combining the expertise and experience of the two specialties involved in hair restoration, including dermatology and plastic surgery, providing patients with a more comprehensive approach to hair restoration.
