Frequently Asked Questions
When you arrive at our clinic, the staff will greet you and bring you to a private room where you will meet Dr. Burka. He’ll take a look at your situation, listen to your goals/concerns, and answer any questions you may have.
From there, Dr. Burka will prescribe a solution that will help you get your natural hair back (and keep it!) Schedule your consultation here.
Hair restoration procedures like hair transplants (both FUE and FUT) are permanent. The reason for this is that your donor hair (taken from the back of your head between the ears) is resistant to hair loss.
There are other treatments available which are designed to help you keep the hair you currently have. These include Rogaine/Propecia and PRP therapy.
Most men qualify for some form of hair restoration treatment. However, some men are not ideal candidates for hair transplant procedures like FUE and FUT. The reason for this is usually that their hair loss is too advanced and their donor area is too small.

Most patients report very little or no pain whatsoever. The procedure is minimally invasive, and a local anesthetic is used to ensure maximum comfort.
Yes. You will spend the afternoon watching movies or using your phone while we move healthy follicles from the back and sides of your head (donor region) to the areas of need. With the local anesthetic we administer, there should be minimal pain and discomfort.
The length of hair restoration procedures varies, and depends on how many hair follicles you need transplanted.
Generally speaking, the procedure starts early morning and lasts through the afternoon. We build in time for meals, snacks, and breaks.
There’s really no “down time” associated with the procedure. Although you can go back to work right away, many patients opt to take a day or two off before returning to work. The donor and recipient area is generally back to normal within 5-7 days.
Most patients will see hair growth begin in months 3-4. By month 6 most patients see about half of their total growth, with the balance filling in within the 1 year mark.
