No need to be shy about your receding hairline or growing bald spot. Hair loss for both men and women can be caused by stress, genetics, disease or even as a side effect to some medical treatments.

Martin performs hair restoration using Robotic Neofollicular Hair Grafting and PRP therapy on men and women in Norwich, Colchester, Mystic, Waterford, Glastonbury, and nearby Connecticut communities.
What Is a Hair Transplant?
A hair transplant is a replacement of the hair through a surgical technique that will create and maintain a fuller hairline. Hair from the back and sides of your head is moved to the front.
How Much Does Hair Restoration in Norwich Cost?
Don’t let cost stop you from having hair restoration. We have financing options available for your convenience. You may also pay by cash, check or credit card.
What Is PRP Therapy?
PRP therapy is a non-surgical technique that involves stimulating new hair growth naturally by extracting platelet-rich plasma from your own blood and injecting it into the scalp.
Benefits of Hair Restoration
A hair transplant restores a full head of hair to your head. At Connecticut Surgical Arts, we employ the use of advanced Robotic Neofollicular Hair Grafting technology that uses digital imaging and precision robotics to carefully harvest grafts for transplant. This high-tech system helps to reduce scarring, minimize recovery time, and procedure more natural-looking results. PRP therapy offers a different set of advantages. Although it takes a longer to see results since the hair re-grows naturally, it is non-surgical, which means little to no downtime.
Who Is the Ideal Candidate for a Hair Restoration?
If you have hair that is thinning or receding, or if you are experiencing a growing bald spot, hair restoration may be for you.
How Long Does It Take to Perform Hair Restoration?
The length of a hair transplant by Dr. Martin varies based on the size of the affected area and the number of follicles being moved. The Robotic Neofollicular Hair Grafting system typically takes around four to eight hours but can last up to twelve with larger cases. It ultimately depends on each patient’s unique needs and restoration goals. PRP therapy, on the other hand, only takes about 30 minutes from start to finish.
What to Expect After Hair Transplant Surgery
We require that you have someone to drive you home after your surgery and stay with you for at least two to three days. There may be some minor pain and swelling, and you will likely be prescribed pain medication. You can wash your hair two days after your surgery.
Will I Have Scars After Hair Transplant Surgery?
Any scarring you may have will be barely visible or completely hidden within your new hair! Our Robotic Neofollicular Hair Grafting system helps to minimize scarring by utilizing precision robotics to carefully harvest the healthy grafts without damaging the tissue.
When Will I See Results?
Following a hair transplant, hair should begin growing within six to 12 weeks, and up to four refinement sessions may be required to attain your desired results. With PRP therapy, it could take six months to a year to see results, and multiple injections at six to eight-week intervals are required.
How Long Will the Results of a Hair Restoration Last?
The results of a hair transplant are long-lasting, but ultimately age and genetics may be a factor in future hair loss.
Frequently Asked Questions
Before the hair transplant procedure, local anesthetic is administered to reduce discomfort as much as possible. However, as a surgical procedure, there will inevitably be some discomfort involved. Most patients describe it as a pricking sensation.
After the first two or three days, you can begin touching your hair, but only very gently. You need to be incredibly gentle when washing your hair during the first week, as the implants will be very sensitive. Also, avoid the use of hair dryers or any strong hair products for at least two weeks.
Like male pattern baldness, there is no “cure” to female pattern baldness. However, Connecticut Surgical Arts specializes in a variety of treatment options to help patients address the symptoms of this condition. Patients may want to consider micrograft hair transplant in order to restore fullness to the hair.
