An important aspect of hair transplantation is the precise placement of hair follicles to allow for a natural looking hair pattern in as little as one treatment. Dr. Quatela’s philosophy is that with proper planning and good aesthetic placement, a natural life-long result can be experienced with the first treatment. In addition to follicular unit micrografting (hair transplantation), Dr. Quatela offers scar management and revision from prior procedures, and aesthetic correction of results from old hair plugs and previous outdated techniques.
