Why Choose Dr. Memar? Because he teaches other surgeons his skills and is a patient himself
Dr Memar was a patient just like you. He shopped around and was not impressed by some of the same people you may have already consulted. Dr. Memar wanted nothing less than perfect, and only after finding that, did he go through with the procedure. My passion with hair loss and hair replacement goes back to the mid 1990s, when I started losing my own hair. I was completing an MD,PhD program, and I did a little side research on hair loss. At this point, Rogain was a prescription drug and Propecia (which blocks 5 alpha reductase) was just making it on the market. I looked at the 5 alpha reductase gene and picked a sensitive area in the front end of the gene (the promoter) and designed a complementary oligonucleotide (oligo) that would bind that RNA made from this gene and prevent any 5 alpha reductase from being made. The oligo was small enough to penetrate skin. I was my own guinea pig and had unsatisfactory results. But that’s where my passion for hair started. I started using Rogain and oral Propecia. I trained in dermatology under one of the greatest experts on hair, Dr. Virginia Fiedler, who invented 5% Rogain. From there I trained further with others on the surgical aspects of hair transplantation, and I have been doing different forms of hair transplantation for over 13 years. Now, with robotic and pneumatic/automated techniques, I feel a new era has begun. A few differences between other hair replacement locations and I include: I do not defer to a technician to do the work. I do the follicular unit extraction (FUE) and follicular unit placement (FUP) and my technicians only help me do it; Secondly, I am trained in the medical causes of hair loss. Too often I see patients undergoing surgery before making the scalp healthy. I investigate internal causes of hair loss and work closely with your diet. An unhealthy or rashy scalp will not grow transplanted hair as well; third, I am a private practitioner and not a traveling surgeon, like you see in the national chains. You will have my personal cell phone and have full access to me and not a nurse or assistant. I would be honored to meet with you in a consultation and discuss your concerns.
Dr. Memar knows what your going through now, and knows what you will go through with the surgery and convalescence. You will meet Dr. Memar in the consultation and he will be performing the surgery. Dr. Memar has been trained in both the medical and surgical treatments of hairloss, and combines the two for outstanding results. Dr. Memar hs been awarded the TopDoctor in hair transplantation by Realself.Read more

Frequently Asked Hair Surgery Questions
Donor hairs come from areas that are genetically not affected by male pattern alopecia. Therefore your donor count depends on your genetics. Each square inch of average donor area has about 200 hairs.
Look at the male in your immediate family with the most amount of hair loss. That is the worst you can get! If this hair loss is where you are now, then considering hair transplantation is reasonable.
Hair texture is determined by the amino acid makeup of your hair. This is determined genetically. There is no surgery that can change hair texture. However, some medications can change the texture of hair.
This is a great question. However, you need to know the exact method your surgeon will use for harvesting the hairs. With our method the harvest area is presentable in 6-7 days.
The hair transplanted will act like the other hairs on the back of the scalp. Therefore if you keep the hair on the sides and back of the scalp, then chances are the transplants should be resistant to loss.
Alopecia areata (aa) is an autoimmune disease where ones own immune system attacks the hair follicles and at times the nails. Treatment needs to be done by a dermatologist adept in hair loss.
