Hair Transplantation Surgery and Restoration Team
At New York Hair Transplantation we offer the latest in Technology combined with the experience of our surgical director Dr Andrew Jacono. Our philosophy is to restore a full head of hair to our clients using the least invasive methods that create natural looking hairlines that are undetectable as surgery. Dr Jacono has been performing hair transplantation surgeries in his practice for the last 14 years and is a member of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons (ISHRS). Dr Jacono had rigorous training in the latest methods of follicular unit hair transplant (FUT) during his advanced 1 year fellowship with the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons. He regularly performs follicular unit extraction hair transplant (FUE) which is the least invasive method of hair transplant which removes the hair follicles one by one. This method does not create an incision that leaves a linear detectable scar on the back of the head.
