The Women’s Center for Hair Loss provides women with a destination where they can discuss their hair restoration options in a non- intimidating environment and under the direct care of Dr. Epstein.

Using exclusively the all- microscopic technique of follicular unit grafting, in addition to treating pattern genetic hair loss, procedures in which Dr. Epstein specializes include: reparative procedures for patients who have had prior procedures with less-than-aesthetic results, body and facial hair transplants including particular expertise in eyebrow restoration, and the repair of scarring and hairline distortion from prior plastic surgery.

“With ten percent of the female population experiencing cosmetically bothersome hair loss, I felt it was best to showcase my expertise in treating these different types of hair loss through a specialized practice. The Center is the only office I know of specifically designed to meet the special surgical requirements of women seeking to treat hair loss,” says Dr. Jeffrey S. Epstein. “Opening the Women’s Center for Hair Loss was a natural extension of the care I have been providing for both men and women suffering from hair loss.”

Sifting and sorting through the thousands of web sites in cyberspace to find a respected physician who can answer questions on hair loss can be a tiresome and endless task. However, key in the words “hair loss” on any competitive search engine and you will eventually be directed to various sites endorsing the work of Dr. Epstein and the Foundation for Hair Restoration.

“I personally respond to every e-mail,” says Dr. Epstein. “I believe in trying to educate as many of those I can about hair loss and treatment options. There is so much inaccurate information disseminated out there, and I realize how appreciative individuals are when provided trustworthy advice by an expert. The great majority of my surgical patients travel to me to make sure they have their procedure performed properly, and online communication is the first step in the process. The decision to have a hair restoration procedure is a major decision, eclipsed only by the choice of a surgeon.”
