The Medical Specialties You Need for Superior Results

California Hair MD is founded and run by Dr. Susan Stuart, a board-certified dermatologist, and Dr. Richard Chaffoo, a triple board-certified plastic surgeon. 

Hair loss has many causes and treating it requires a multi-disciplinary approach. By having specialists in both dermatology and plastic surgery, we can treat the root causes of hair loss while creating aesthetically pleasing hair restoration results

While many hair restoration practices have a plastic surgeon or a dermatologist on their team, California Hair MD is one of the few in the United States to utilize both dermatology and plastic surgery specialists. Our unique team approach provides patients with better access to the latest scientific advancements and treatments in hair restoration. Our patients have access to the latest medical and surgical treatments for hair loss.


Individualized Patient Care

California Hair MD is a boutique practice with a focus on individualized patient care. We intentionally keep our practice small to enable us to provide each patient with a personalized treatment experience. We want our patients to play an active role in their care and have access to our doctors. 

We know that hair restoration is never one-size-fits-all. Dr. Chaffoo and Dr. Stuart work with each patient to create personalized treatment plans for hair loss. Whether you’re in the early stages of hair thinning or have significant hair loss, our team can help you to restore your hairline and your confidence. 

As a small boutique hair restoration practice, most of our patients come to us through referrals. We strive to always provide care that will delight our patients so they feel comfortable entrusting us with their family and friends.

Natural-Looking Results

Look your best after hair transplantation. California Hair MD is known for creating natural-looking results. Our advanced methods for hair restoration eliminate the long, linear scar that is traditionally associated with hair transplantation. With FUE hair restoration at California Hair MD, patients can wear their hair in any style and at any length after their hair restoration procedure.
