Non-scalp Hair Transplants

Eyebrow, Beard, Eyelash, and Body Hair Transplants

These relatively newer hair restoration procedures have become high in demand, as results have reached a level of true naturalness. For Dr. Epstein, this is not a new phenomenon — he has been at the forefront in developing these techniques for over 15 years. Techniques that involve the meticulous making of the smallest possible recipient sites positioned to mimic natural growth. Dr. Epstein performs four or more of these procedures weekly, and continues to refine results.

Dr. Epstein is Proud to Have His Work Recognized by

The Expert in Eyebrows and Beards

There is likely not another surgeon who is as well known for his expertise in these specialty hair transplant procedures. Since 2001, Dr. Epstein has been developing techniques for transplanting hairs to the eyebrows and beards, as well as eyelashes, the chest, pubic region, even the legs and arms, and his work continues to be recognized worldwide for the aesthetic results he achieves, one patient at a time.

Dr. Epstein’s Key Accomplishments:

  • Has performed over 700 eyebrow and 900 beard procedures
  • Achieves natural-appearing results
  • Has published scientific articles and textbook chapters
  • Most cases performed using advanced FUE techniques
  • Routinely invited to lecture on his techniques at national and international meetings

Eyebrow Transplants

This is a procedure for women and men who desire fuller, more aesthetic appearing eyebrows. Whether the eyebrows are overly thin or flat or too arched from over plucking or genetics or aging, or missing hairs in a scar that is the result of trauma, they can be restored using techniques largely developed by Dr. Epstein himself, including the use of tiny blades half a millimeter in thickness into which the hairs get placed.

The procedure takes three to five hours to perform, most commonly with an oral sedative (although twilight anesthesia is offered) and local anesthesia. It is meticulous work, done with strict attention to detail and aesthetics.

Beard Transplants

When more facial hair is desired, Dr. Epstein can create the desired look, whether to the entire beard or specific areas such as the goatee or sideburns, using techniques he has largely developed. Facial hair transplants can also be used to conceal acne and other types of scars, as well as restore hair lost as a result of prior laser hair removal. The donor hairs most commonly come from the scalp, which typically grow like normal facial hair in their texture and other characteristics, and can be shaved or trimmed as desired.

The procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia with an oral sedative. Taking four to eight hours to perform, each graft is individually harvested by FUE techniques, then dissected down to contain just the hairs that are then placed into hundreds to thousands of recipient sites, each made one at a time by Dr. Epstein, with attention to the angle, direction, and position.

Eyelash Transplants

This procedure, performed only to the upper eyelids, restores eyelashes where they are missing such as from overplucking and trauma, or enhances and thickens existing eyelashes. The eyelashes that come from the scalp are essentially “threaded” into the upper eyelids, optimizing their tendency to curl upwards. In a typical eyelash transplant, 90 to 110 hairs are placed to each side. Dr. Epstein usually recommends that patients first try Latisse or other lash-enhancing product before undergoing a transplant, due to the limitations of the procedure that include the need for regular trimming and curling, as well as small risks of the lashes growing into the eyes.

Chest, Axilla, Pubic, Arms, Legs.

All areas where Dr. Epstein has transplanted hairs to create fuller appearances. Sometimes these hairs are placed to restore a more masculine appearance, sometimes as part of the transgender transition process, and other times to restore hair loss from prior surgery or laser hair removal.
