Bernstein Medical, P.C. offers state-of-the-art treatments in surgical hair restoration based on Dr. Bernstein‘s pioneering hair transplant techniques of Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) – procedures that have revolutionized modern hair restoration surgery.
Patients of Bernstein Medical receive a thorough diagnostic evaluation and a complete discussion of their treatment options. When surgical treatment is indicated, it is performed with meticulous attention to details, warm personal attention, and long-term follow-up.
All consultations are performed personally by Dr. Bernstein or Dr. Shah. There are no “medical consultants” or salesmen in our practice. All patients are given an honest assessment of their medical and surgical options. Treatment recommendations are based solely on what is best for each patient.
At Bernstein Medical, the goal is to maximize the use of your donor hair supply to give you the most natural, long-term aesthetic results from your hair transplant surgery. We use dense packing, mega-sessions, FUT, and FUE routinely in our practice. The goal, however, is not to push the limit of the hair transplantation surgery, but rather to have a one-to-one correspondence between the hair that is harvested from the donor area and what actually grows.
Looking at our patient’s hair transplant photos, one can see the incredible results of our hair restoration surgery from using, in many patients, a modest number of grafts. This conserves donor hair for future use, if the baldness progresses, and minimizes the amount of donor tissue used.
In creating recipient sites, the doctors use lateral slits that orient the follicular unit grafts in a way that provides the most complete and natural coverage. When appropriate, we use surgical staples in the donor closure to maximally conserve donor hair and use absorbable sutures for patient comfort and convenience. We administer vibratory anesthesia to minimize any discomfort from the hair transplant procedure.
