Dr. Vladimir Panine and his experienced staff perform high quality follicular unit hair transplant surgery with excellent results

Why Dr. Panine is recommended.

Dr. Vladimir Panine of Chicago Hair Transplant Clinic has specialized in surgical hair restoration and the medical treatment of hair loss since 1994 and is a board certified dermatologist.   He personally consults with each of his patients in depth to customize solutions to meet their specific needs and concerns. 

Dr. Panine recently took over for Dr. Christopher Gencheff in the state of Wisconsin who recently retired.  Thus, Dr. Panine is also performing state of the art hair transplant surgery in the state of Wisconsin.

Dr. Vladimir Panine provides both FUT/strip and FUE (follicular unit excision - formerly known as follicular unit extraction) hair transplant surgery.  Dr. Panine feels that FUE is a viable alternative to strip under certain circumstances but that FUT/strip is typically optimal for larger cases.

Dr. Panine and his experienced staff are passionate and committed to providing state of the art hair transplant solutions utilizing the latest tools and surgical techniques.  Dr. Panine provides surgical hair restoration as the primary part of his practice and has the staff and experience to perform over 3000 follicular unit grafts in a single session when appropriate for the patient.

Adaptability and flexibility are vital ingredients Dr. Panine includes to provide custom solutions to his patients.  Dr. Panine creates a combination of parallel (sagital) and perpendicular (coronal/lateral) incisions at an appropriate angle to mimic the patient’s natural direction of hair growth.  Dr. Panine typically densely packs up to 40 FU/cm2 when appropriate depending on the patient’s goals and area of baldness.  He believes it’s better to add additional density in a second procedure to protect the scalp’s vascularity and maximize hair growth yield from the first procedure.

Dr. Panine uses minimally invasive techniques to ensure minimal trauma to the scalp and maximum growth yield.  Dr. Panine harvests the donor strip using a single blade to minimize transection and uses the trichophytic closure technique exclusively to minimize the appearance of the scar.  By using a single running stitch with individual sutures in between, Dr. Panine feels he can minimize tension on the wound and create an optimal scar.  Dr. Panine’s experienced staff carefully trims all follicular units under microscopes and inserts them into tiny recipient incisions made by Dr. Panine.

Dr. Panine has also performed research and authored numerous publications as it relates to hair restoration.  He holds medical licenses in Illinois, Michigan, New York, California, and Russia.  Dr. Panine is multilingual speaking fluent English, French and Russian. 

Dr. Panine is a member of the following organizations

  • International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS)
  • American Society of Hair Restoration Surgery  (ASHRS)
  • American Board of Aesthetic Medicine and Surgery
  • American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery
  • American Society for Dermatological Surgery
  • American Medical Association

Hair Transplant Videos: Patient Results and Education

Dr. Panine - Chicago Hair Transplant Clinic - Patient Results | 3,640 grafts

This 31 year old gentleman had a hair loss pattern similar to a class 3 on the Hamilton Norwood hair loss scale. After establishing his medical history and understanding the progression of his hair loss, I diagnosed his condition as Androgenetic Alopecia (male pattern baldness), ruling out any other possible dermatological or medical conditions which can cause hair loss. His goal was to rebuild his hairline that would be age appropriate now and as he continue to age. In addition he wanted to add more density to the frontal 1/3 of his scalp. The patient’s goal was well suited to his needs and therefore I planned the surgery accordingly. 


A total of 3,640 grafts were used. The break down was as follows: 1,304 single hair grafts, 2,029 two hair grafts and 307 three hair graft. I used a significant amount of single hair follicular units which allowed me to create a very natural hairline. This action will allow him to comb his hair without anyone detecting that he has had anything done. These are his results 9 months post-op. The patient is extremely happy with his result. He does understand that he might need an addition procedure if he would like more density or does have any further hair loss down the road.

VLADIMIR PANINE, MD - Chicago Hair Transplant Clinic 2,210 FUE | 14 Months Post-Op

This 36 year old gentleman had a hair loss pattern similar to a class 3 on the Hamilton Norwood hair loss scale. After establishing his medical history and understanding the progression of his hair loss, I diagnosed his condition as Androgenetic Alopecia (male pattern baldness), ruling out any other possible dermatological or medical conditions which can cause hair loss. His goal was to rebuild a conservative hairline that would be age appropriate now and as he continue to age. In addition, he wanted more hair throughout the frontal 1/3 of his scalp to build up more density. The patient’s goal was well suited to his needs and therefore I planned the surgery accordingly. 


A total of 2,210 FUE grafts were used. The break down was as follows: 1,259 single hair grafts, 951 two hair grafts. I used a significant amount of single hair follicular units which allowed me to create a very natural hairline. This action will allow him to comb his hair without anyone detecting that he has had anything done. These are his results 14 months post-op. The patient is extremely happy with his result. He does understand that he might need an addition procedure if he would like more density or does have any further hair loss down the road.

Vladimir V. Panine, MD - CHICAGO HAIR TRANSPLANT CLINIC - FUE | 2,978 Grafts

This 43 year old gentleman was a class 5v. He had a previous surgery, performed by another doctor over 10 years ago. That procedure was a strip procedure. He elected to do a FUE procedure this time. After establishing his medical history and understanding the progression of his hair loss, I diagnosed his condition as Androgenetic Alopecia (male pattern baldness), ruling out any other possible dermatological or medical conditions which can cause hair loss. His goal was to achieve a natural looking hairline with as much coverage as possible into the frontal 1/3 of his scalp. I explained that with his degree of hair loss that it would never look as full as before he lost his hair, but he will have enough coverage to change his appearance from the front. 


We needed to take his age, present degree of hair loss and possible further hair loss into consideration when planning the surgery. We agreed that it would be best to keep some temple recession, so that he will look good at 43 but also look good as he continues to age. I also explained that if he wanted more density after his first procedure, his donor area would support another procedure in order to continue filling the area farther back. I also explained to him that there was a possibility that he could lose more of his own hair. If this was to happen, the transplanted hair would be able to stand alone and still look natural, but he would need another procedure to bring it back to the way it looks now. 

He had a total of 2,978 grafts. The break down was as follows: 1,438 single hair, 1360 two hair grafts and 180 three hair grafts. These are his results 9 months post-op and his result will continue to improve over the next 3-6 months. The patient is on Finasteride and is extremely happy with his results.

Vladimir V. Panine, MD | Chicago Hair Transplant Clinic | 10 Months | 3,577 grafts

This 24 year old gentleman was a class 3v. After establishing his medical history and understanding the progression of his hair loss, I diagnosed his condition as Androgenetic Alopecia (male pattern baldness), ruling out any other possible dermatological or medical conditions which can cause hair loss. His goal was to achieve a natural looking hairline with as much coverage as possible into the frontal 1/2 of his scalp. I explained that the procedure would give him enough density in the front half of his scalp so that when he combed his hair, it would not appear as though his hair was thinning. As we planned the surgery, we needed to take his age, present degree of hair loss and possible further hair loss into consideration. Each surgery needs to address the main concerns of a patient so no two plans are the same. We agreed that it would be best to still keep some temple recession so that it will look good for him at 24 but it would still look good as he ages. I also explained that if he wanted more density, after his first procedure, that his donor area would support another procedure. This would allow him to add more density into the frontal area or into his crown. I also explained to him that there was a possibility that he could lose more of his own hair. If this was to happen the transplanted hair would be able to stand alone and still look natural, but he would need another procedure to bring it back to the way it looks now. 


He had a total of 3,577 grafts. The break down was as follows: 1,658 single hair, 1,569 two hair grafts and 350 three hair grafts. These are his results 10 months post-op and it will continue to improve over the next 2-5 months. The patient is on Finasteride and is extremely happy with his results.

Vladimir V. Panine, MD- Chicago Hair Transplant Clinic- 3,553 grafts 8 Months Post-Op

This 29 year old gentleman was a class 4v. After establishing his medical history and understanding the progression of his hair loss, I diagnosed his condition as Androgenetic Alopecia (male pattern baldness), ruling out any other possible dermatological or medical conditions which can cause hair loss. His goal was to achieve a natural looking hairline with as much coverage as possible into the frontal 1/2 of his scalp. We need to take his age, present degree of hair loss and possible further hair loss into consideration when designing his hair line and the surgical plan. I indicated to him that it would be best to still keep some temple recession as that design will look good for him at age 29 and also look good as he continues to age. I explained to him that with his degree of hair loss, one procedure would not make his hair look as dense as before he started losing his hair, but that I could give him enough coverage to take 10 years off of his appearance. I also explained that if he wanted more density after his first procedure, his donor area would support another procedure. A second procedure would allow us to add more density into the frontal area or into his crown. I also explained to him that there was a possibility that he could lose more of his own hair. If this was to happen the transplanted hair would be able to stand alone and still look natural, but he would need another procedure to bring it back to the way it looks now. 


He had a total of 3,553 grafts. The break down was as follows: 1,289 single hair, 1,584 two hair grafts and 680 three hair grafts. These are his results 8 months post-op and he will continue to get more improvement over the next 4-7 months. He is extremely happy with his results.

Vladimir V. Panine, MD - Chicago Hair Transplant Clinic-2 FUE Procedures 4,171 grafts

This gentleman had diffused thinning from his hairline to his crown, and was heading towards a class 5. After establishing his medical history and understanding the progression of his hair loss, I diagnosed his condition as Androgenetic Alopecia (male pattern baldness), ruling out any other possible dermatological or medical conditions which can cause hair loss. His goal was to reconstruct his hairline, add density from the hairline to the crown and wanted to be able to keep his donor area very short. 


I needed to take in to consideration his age of 37, present degree of hair loss and possible further hair loss. We both agreed that it would be best to still keep some temple recession so it looks appropriate for him today but also looks good as he continues to age. I advised him that it would be best for his situation to have a FUE procedure since his goal was to be able to keep the back very short That said, I also advised him that it would have to be done over 2 procedures. I also explained that there was a possibility that he could lose more of his own hair. If this was to happen, the transplanted hair would be able to stand alone and still look natural, but he would possibly need another procedure to replace what he lost.

During his 1st procedure we transplanted 2,092 FUE/ grafts. The breakdown was 1,063 single hair grafts, 906 double hair grafts and 123 triple hair grafts. All of the grafts in his 1st procedure were concentrated into the frontal 1/3 of his scalp. His 2nd procedure was completed one year later and we addressed the mid and crown area. We transplanted 2,079 FUE/grafts with his 2nd procedure. The breakdown was 968 single hair grafts, 897 double hair grafts and 214 3 hair grafts. The patient is extremely happy with his results and can style his hair exactly the way he wants to.

Vladimir V. Panine, MD - Chicago Hair Transplant Clinic - FUE Hair Transplant - 1,749

This 58 year old gentleman was a class 4v, but really heading towards a class 5. He had a very small hair transplant procedure that consisted of a few hundred grafts over 25 years ago. After establishing his medical history and understanding the progression of his hair loss, I diagnosed his condition as Androgenetic Alopecia (male pattern baldness), ruling out any other possible dermatological or medical conditions which can cause hair loss. 


This patient’s objective was simple; he did not want to have a large procedure but he wanted to achieve a very conservative hairline and look younger. That said, he also wanted a FUE procedure. As an executive in a business environment, he felt that his hair loss was starting to impact other’s perceptions of him and he was in an industry where perceptions were important. His hair was making him appear older than he actually was. His feelings were understandable and his goal achievable. That said, I explained that there was a possibility that he could lose more of his own hair. If this was to happen the transplanted hair would be able to stand alone and still look natural, but he would need another procedure to build it back up. 

To plan the surgery we need to take his age, present degree of hair loss and possible further hair loss into consideration. We agreed that it would be best to keep some temple recession so that his result would look good for him now, at 58, but also look good as he continues to age. We had planned to utilize 1,500 FUE grafts, arranging them into the frontal 1/3 but we actually ended up doing over 1,700 grafts. 

We transplanted a total of 1,749 grafts. The break down was as follows: 793 single hair, 689 two hair grafts and 267 three hair grafts. I used a significant amount of single hair follicular units on his part side/right side. The hair on this side needs to work hard and will shingle over the middle and left side of the scalp. This action will allow him to comb/style his hair without anyone detecting that he has had anything done. 

These are his results 10 months after his procedure. I think his results go a long way in showing the hair loss community that you can get great results with a small number of grafts when the procedure is done correctly. Remember that his goal was to look younger; this goal was definitely achieved. I understand that when he tilts his head all the way back, he looks very thin in the crown, but people do not walk around holding that position. You have to keep in mind that this was an FUE case, yet the yield this patient achieved was as good as if it had been a FUT procedure. Needless to say, the patient is extremely happy with his results and is considering another procedure to add some density.

Vladimir V. Panine, MD - Chicago Hair Transplant Clinic- Patient Results @ 1 Year

This 30 year old was a class 3v. After establishing his medical history and understanding the progression of his hair loss, I diagnosed his condition as Androgenetic Alopecia (male pattern baldness), ruling out any other possible dermatological or medical conditions which can cause hair loss. This patient objective was to rebuild his hairline and add as much density as possible to the frontal ? of scalp while adding some density to the crown. I explained to him that we need to take his age, present degree of hair loss and possible further hair loss into consideration when planning the surgery. I indicated that it would be best to keep some temple recession so that it will look good for him at 30 and also look good for him as he ages. I agreed to do about 1,000 grafts to the frontal area of the crown, but did not want to get too aggressive due to the fact he could lose more hair. I also explained that there was a possibility that he could still lose more of his own hair in the future. If this was to happen the transplanted hair would be able to stand alone and still look natural, but he would need another procedure to bring it back to the way it looks now. He is presently on Propecia, to hopefully help stabilize further hair loss. If Propecia stabilizes his hair loss I agreed to do another procedure to his crown in a few years.


He had a total of 4,387 grafts. The break down was as follows: 2,147 single hair, 2,084 two hair grafts and 156 three hair grafts. I used a significant amount of single hair follicular units which allowed me to create a very natural hairline. This action will allow him to comb his hair without anyone detecting that he has had anything done. These are his results 1 year post-op. The patient is extremely happy with his results.

This 31 year old was a class 4. After establishing his medical history and understanding the progression of his hair loss, I diagnosed his condition as Androgenetic Alopecia (male pattern baldness), ruling out any other possible dermatological or medical conditions which can cause hair loss. This patient’s objective was to rebuild his hairline and add as much density as possible to the frontal ? of the scalp. I explained to him that we need to take his age, present degree of hair loss and possible future hair loss into consideration when planning the surgery; it would be best to still keep some temple recession that will look good for him at 31 and will also look good as he ages. Additionally, I explained that there was a possibility that he could lose more of his own hair. If that was to happen, the transplanted hair would be able to stand alone and still look natural, but he would need another procedure to bring it back to the way it looks now.

He had a total of 3,419 grafts. The break down was as follows: 1,452 single hair, 1,742 two hair grafts and 225 3 hair grafts. I used a significant amount of single hair follicular units which allowed me to create a very natural hairline. This action will allow him to comb his hair without anyone detecting that he has had anything done. These are his results 10 months post-op. Patient is extremely happy with his results.

"It's difficult to single out a single story because there are quite a few of them. But one particular story stands out in my mind. I had a young patient who had premature hair loss and he came up to our clinic. We extensively interviewed him and advised him of all the options of non-surgical and surgical treatment. He elected to undergo a procedure at our clinic. And in the process of undergoing the procedure, healing and final result, he was traveling out of town to see his mother who was elderly and living out of town. The patient was very concerned about his hair loss and self conscious and was always wearing a baseball hat when going to see his mom. So finally when the final stage grew in, he was happy to remove his baseball hat. He took it off and his mother said that that I like your hairstyle and encouraged him to continue seeing the hairstylist he went to. I have a wonderful patient who is actually a Brazilian model and also happens to be a medical student in the United States. He suffered premature hair loss in his late teens and early twenties. He came to our clinic for surgery and after he had completed the course, his modern career took off. He still does modeling even though he has a very heavy medical workload."
