New York City Hair Loss Specialist, Dr. Alizadeh

Dr. Kaveh Alizadeh, a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and board-certified plastic surgeon, offers hair restoration and hair transplants in New York City.

He offers four of the most effective hair restoration treatments available to patients of all ages:

  • PRF & Platinum PRP 2.0 (Platelet Rich Fibrin and highly concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma, respectively)
  • NeoGraft semi-automated hair transplantation
  • FUE, or follicular unit extraction
  • ExoBoost, derived from stem cells, which promotes skin rejuvenation and enhances the healing process by delivering growth factors

Each of these regenerative options is best-suited to patients experiencing various degrees of severity in hair thinning and loss, so Dr. Alizadeh carefully adapts these techniques to address your condition and cosmetic concerns effectively.

What causes hair loss?

Hair loss, also known as alopecia, is caused by an interruption in the body’s hair production cycle. Whether due to the natural course of aging, genetic predisposition, medical reasons, or other factors, when a person experiences unexpected hair loss and excessive hair thinning, they have various advanced and minimally-invasive hair restoration options.

Which Hair Restoration Treatment Options Does Dr. Alizadeh Offer?

PRF, or “platelet-rich fibrin” hair restoration, uses a substance created from your blood to stimulate your existing hair follicles to produce healthier and thicker hair. PRF has been used for over twenty years to speed wound healing.

Platinum PRP 2.0 (highly concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma) uses a similar technology as PRF, but isolates 5 times the regenerative cells, which is then injected into the scalp in areas where hair loss is observed

NeoGraft is a trademarked form of follicular unit extraction that harvests several healthy hair follicles from a donor site or sites and places these full follicular units in the bald or thinning areas where they repopulate.

FUE is an ideal hair restoration treatment for many patients as it’s rapid, safe, and useful. The way it harvests follicles—individually and requiring no removal of skin from the scalp—leaves no linear scars. When providing FUE hair transplants in New York City at his private practice, Dr. Alizadeh extracts thriving follicles with a unique suction device to use them in areas in need of more hair.

  • Exoboost Hair Restoration

Exoboost hair restoration is an innovative approach that harnesses the regenerative power of exosomes, small extracellular vesicles derived from stem cells. These tiny messengers contain growth factors and signaling molecules that stimulate dormant hair follicles, promoting hair regrowth and thickness. Unlike traditional methods, exosome therapy for hair loss is minimally invasive and can potentially provide long-lasting results by rejuvenating and nourishing the scalp at a cellular level.

Why is Hair Restoration needed?

Genetics, diet, the natural process of aging, and various medical conditions can play a role in whether a person will ever experience thinning hair or bald patches. By age 35, some 66 percent of men will experience at least some degree of hair loss. In many cases, this thinning and loss isn’t obvious, but for those for whom it is, PRF, Platinum PRP 2.0, NeoGraft, FUE, and ExoBoost are often the best treatment options.


Dr. Alizadeh has formulated an effective, five-step solution to help restore hair growth for patients of every age and stage of hair loss.

  1. Medically-proven topical medications formulated by Dr. Alizadeh personally to make a dramatic change in preventing hair loss and promoting follicular growth.
  2. Platelet-rich fibrin stem cells applied to the scalp to help stimulate hair growth for patients who are not ready for hair transplant.
  3. Automated and scarless approach to follicular unit hair grafting by the most experienced transplant team in the country with over 3,500 procedures performed.
  4. Complete access to the best and most caring clinical team who continue to work with you for one year after surgery.
  5. Personalized attention to the details of your needs as you move from medical to surgical management of hair loss all the way to the satisfactory completion of care.

Maximizing Your Hair Restoration Outcome

To ensure the sustained excellence of your hair restoration outcomes, we advise a regimen of regular treatments. Patients have the option to select individual treatments, including PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin) administered 3 times annually, Exosome therapy 1 time yearly, or PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) treatments administered 2 times yearly. For enhanced results, patients may opt to combine these treatments. However, at a minimum, adhering to this scheduled regimen is paramount to maximizing the benefits of your hair restoration journey.

Hair Restoration vs Hair Transplants

Hair restoration is a process that restores thicker, healthier hair growth in an area of the scalp where the hair is thinning or balding. Hair restoration may involve a number of different treatments, medications or other procedures, including hair transplants.

A hair transplant is a specific process in which hair follicles are moved from one part of the scalp to another. Follicles are carefully removed from an area with thick, dense hair growth, usually at the back of the head. These are inserted into the thin or bald area to effectively restore hair growth.

Areas of hair restoration

Hair restoration can be performed on more than just the scalp. With modern, advanced techniques, hair restoration can achieve thick, healthy hair growth in the following areas:

  • Head
  • Beard and mustache
  • Eyebrows
  • Sideburns

When can I return to work?

Most patients can return to work after a few days. Tiny scabs will form around the newly implanted hairs. These will fall off in about ten days. Some patients prefer not to return to work until they are gone.

Is it painful?

Your treatment is performed with a local anesthetic, making the experience pain-free. Longer procedures that transplant a greater number of hairs may require more anesthetic to be applied during the treatment so that you are comfortable throughout.

Will there be scarring?

The punctures are extremely tiny, leaving unnoticeable scars. Patients can wear their hair at any length.

How long before I can go in public?

Within 2-3 days, you will be recovered enough to return to your usual activities, but there will still be scabbing on your scalp which may cause self-consciousness. You can wear a hat or covering over your hair, or wait until the scabs rub off after ten days.

Do I need anesthesia?

Local anesthesia is used, but general anesthesia is not required for FUE or PRP procedures.

What's the cost of hair transplants in NYC?

Hair transplant cost in NYC varies, depending upon the number of follicles transplanted. Some patients require fewer grafts for a smaller balding area. Others would like a more extensive restoration. Cost is calculated per hair graft. On average, the cost ranges between $4,000 to $12,000.

How long does the procedure take?

Hair transplantation takes 4-8 hours, depending on the number of grafts required.

Can women get hair restoration?

Hair restoration is designed for women as well as men. Any person noticing their hair becoming thinner, their part becoming wider and more visible, or seeing the appearance of balding areas can have hair restoration treatments to reverse these effects.
