As you grow older genetic factors and changes in your hormones can lead to the gradual loss of hair follicles on your head. In general, individuals who experience hair loss when they are young are more likely to lose a significant amount of hair as they grow older.

While baldness is certainly more common among men, women can also experience thinning hair as they age. Over time significant hair loss can have a negative impact on your self-image and self-confidence.

Here at the Coastal Plastic Surgery Center, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Leon Goldstein, can perform hair transplants to help restore your youthful hairline and appearance. The procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis without the need for invasive surgery.

The micro-graft technique involves our surgeon and staff carefully extracting hair follicles from the back or sides of your head, before gently inserting them into areas that have experienced a decrease in hair follicle density. The result is a youthful hairline, an easy to manage head of hair as well as a renewed self-image.

Afterward your procedure we will provide you with any necessary recovery instructions.

If you live in the areas surrounding Madison, Connecticut, or Providence, Rhode Island, and you have been struggling to deal with hair loss, we invite you to call 203.245.0350 to set up a consultation at the Coastal Plastic Surgery Center.
