Top Hair Restoration Surgeon in America

Welcome to the website of hair restoration surgeon Dr. Timothy Carman, Diplomate of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery and Fellow of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons since 2003.

An artist, as well as a surgeon, Dr. Carman, combines the latest transplantation technologies with his innate aesthetic sense to achieve a natural appearing “rejuvenation” of your previous head of hair which will appear age-appropriate, and, most importantly, will stand the test of time. He takes pride in his ability to integrate the art and science of medicine in a surgical practice that, at it’s cornerstone, relies on the time-honored tradition of truly cultivating the doctor patient relationship. He appreciates that as a patient, undergoing a cosmetic surgery procedure can literally be a life-changing event. As such, he ensures that every patient receives his individual attention every step of the way. Dr. Carman has found that this respect for the doctor patient relationship in the setting of an elective cosmetic procedure produces the most satisfying outcome.

Dr. Carman’s expertise includes not only a variety of basic hair restoration techniques, but also combined reconstructive procedures such as scalp reduction, scar revision, and the use of tissue expanders. Other common treatments include facial hair restoration involving beard, moustache, and eyebrow hair reconstructions. Medical treatments such as Propecia/Finasteride, Rogaine/Minoxidil and other herbal and topical medications are indicated as tools for prevention. Whatever the cause and extent of your hair loss, and whatever your hair restoration goals may be, Dr. Carman has the expertise to help create a solution for you.
