Epstein is considered one of the country's leading experts
in hair restoration surgery by the plastic surgery community.
A board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Epstein has
been specializing in hair transplantation since 1993. Widely
published in the plastic surgery, dermatology, and hair transplant
fields, Dr. Epstein is also a Voluntary Professor at the University
of Miami. In addition, not a month goes by that he is not
quoted by the media or press for his expertise in this field.
More importantly, amongst his peers he is considered an expert
in follicular unit grafting, reparative hair transplants,
and hair restoration for women.
Dr. Epstein was recently the featured surgeon in a three-part
series on hair transplantation that ran in Popular Science
magazine. This series focused on both his work in follicular
unit grafting as well as his anesthesia technique through
the use of The Wand®.
Most important to Dr. Epstein is the respect and recognition
of his patients. He personally performs all consultations
and procedures, while his highly experienced team of assistants
performs all microscopic graft dissection and assists in the
planting. Only one procedure is performed at a time, allowing
the attention to detail that Dr. Epstein promises all his
patients. His office procedure suite is accredited by the
Florida Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, complying with the new

This accreditation allows for procedures to be performed under
mild sedation, or if patients choose, twilight sedation.
