Dr. Cesar's

Hair Restoration Journey

Dr. Cesar underwent an FUT hair transplant in 2005 but was still lacking the density and growth he was looking for. He decided to undergo an FUE transplant in January of 2022 and documented his journey to show his patients. 

From the morning of the procedure to seven months post-op, Dr. Cesar explains the process, shows the procedure, and provides updates to teach patients what to expect when getting an FUE hair transplant. 

Dr. Cesar believes in his work so much that he underwent one of his procedures himself. Watch his hair restoration journey to learn more about this procedure to restore natural hair growth to your scalp.

Scalp Preparation

The doctor uses a vibration tool to help minimize the pain as he injects local anesthetic to the transplant site. Dr. Cesar says it helps with the initial pinch and makes the scalp preparation less painful.

Graft Harvesting

Watch as the doctor harvests hair follicles from the area of Dr. Cesar’s scalp that does not have hair loss. He will use these grafts to implant them in the areas affected by hair loss to help Dr. Cesar grow hair naturally.

Getting Ready for Implantation

The doctor breaks out the vibration tool again to prepare the implantation area. The vibration tool helps distract from the pinch of the needle. The anesthetic helps numb the scalp to make the procedure as pain-free as possible.
