Be Your Better Self


We are proud to announce the arrival of the Trivellini Tech revolutionary vacuum assisted multiphasic FUE hair transplant system first developed in 2011 by Dr Roberto Trivellini in Paraguay.  The system combines years of evolution and technological improvements in the fields of electronics and materials to create the state of art FUE system.  We are the only clinic in New Zealand with this technology.

We are the only clinic in New Zealand with locally trained doctors who live and work full time in Auckland.  Dr Wong and Doo perform all extractions and hair transplantations using Choi implanters.  This method has been called "DHI" or Direct Hair Implantation by some clinics.  We are also a teaching clinic, hosting and teaching senior medical students from the School of Medicine, University of Auckland.



New Zealand Hair Transplantation Institute trading as New Zealand Hair Transplant has its rooms in the Sapphire Appearance Medicine Clinic.  New Zealand Hair Transplantation Institute is Auckland's first permanently full time FUE Hair Transplantation Clinic specialising in permanent hair restoration to restore and treat bald and balding men and women who have thinning hair, hair loss or receding hair lines, correct areas of hairloss due to scars or accidents, eyebrow transplants, beard transplants, facial hair transplants including moustache, goatee, side burns, and cheek beard hair transplants, with qualified internationally trained Kiwi doctors.  All surgery is performed by qualified specialist doctors, who are either full members of the World FUE Institute and are pending full members of the International Society for Hair Restoration Surgery.  We can offer a permanent hair loss cure as well as prescribe for you scientifically hair loss medication to give you the best hair transplant result and help you to regrow your hair, giving natural looking, permanent results.

Patients with Adrogenetic Alopecia (Male Pattern Baldness) will benefit from taking scientifically proven and safe medicines. 


A good analogy to explain hair loss is to think of your head of hair like a bucket of water. Your hair on your scalp is the water in a bucket, that is there is a fixed amount of hair on our head (like water in a bucket).  With Male Pattern Baldness, you have a leak in your bucket, that is you are losing hair.  Hair transplant restoration surgery is shifting water in the bucket, from one area to another (transplant hair from your donor site to where you need it).  Prescribed medicines are an important scientifically proven method to slow and sometimes stop the leak ie reduce or stop more hair loss like a cork slowing down the leak of water (ie your hair) from your bucket.

If your hair loss continues, then your head of hair is like an artist with only one pot of paint with a canvas that keeps growing!

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 your 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.

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. 

New Zealand Hair Transplantation Institute normal conducts surgery on  Saturdays.  Surgery outside of normal business hours or during public holidays may be available however a surcharge is applicable.


Drs Wong and Doo have attended 3 World Congresses of ISHRS - International Society for Hair Restoration Surgery, namely the 27th, 28th and the 29th World Congress.  Keeping up to date with the latest world opinions on Stem Cell research, Exosomes, Membrane Free Stem Cell Growth Factors and more. 


Drs Wong and Doo listened to a stimulating presentation given by Professor Angela Christiano, Vice Chair of Research in Dermatology and Genetics and Development at the Columbia University, New York City, updating her ground breaking work on JAK inhibitors which can stimulate hair to grow in bald areas so long as there are dormant hair follicles present.  Professor Christiano shares our vision that one day we will be able to grow your own hair follicles in a lab, and then subsequently transplant them to where it is needed, however it will still be a little while yet before this will be commercially available, nevertheless the future of hair loss treatment looks promising.

New Zealand Transplantation Institute use Choi Implanters.  The implanters mean that there is less handling of your hair follicles therefore improved outcomes.  

We are also waiting for the arrival of the Trivellini system, designed by the World Renown Hair Restoration Surgeon, Dr Roberto Trivellini.  The system will eventually allow us to introduce long hair FUE.

Continuing medical education is an essential pillar of our practice so that we can evolve and improve the knowledge and services that New Zealand Hair Transplantation Institute kiwi trained, New Zealand born doctors will provide for you.

Although video consultations are available, we prefer face to face consultations so that a detailed examination of your hair, especially the donor region, can be undertaken with a dermoscope.  Email is our preferred method of communication.  We look forward to looking after you.
