We are dedicated to providing permanent, lasting solutions to restore your hairline and baldness using the latest surgical methods in a custom built surgical suite right here in Auckland, New Zealand for your hair loss.  Surgery involves surgery, and as such you can never say that a surgical procedure is scarless however with good selection, the results make it difficult to see any scars.  We encourage all our patients to take FDA / Medsafe approved medication as well as topical treatments that are scientifically and clinically proven to preserve what hair you have, and to make thinning hair thicker, and more prolific. 

The impact of balding and premature hair loss is far reaching.  On the 5th of February 2020, research from the University of Otago was presented at Breakfast Show on TV One, showing that men without any hair loss or balding altered our perception of their leadership abilities. Feel free to cut and paste this link to watch:

Dr Garsing Wong and Dr Thomas Doo keep up to date with all the latest research to cure baldness.  In particular they are interested in following Dr Takashi Tsuji's research on Stem Cell and Hair Cloning therapy to cure hairloss , and the promising work of Dr Angela Christiano on JAK inhibitors which can stimulate hair to grow in bald areas so long as there are dormant hair follicles present.  It will be a little while yet before these are commercially available, nevertheless the future of hairloss treatment looks promising.
