Read her archived articles. As one of the most experienced and accredited hair restoration surgeons in California, Dr. Wasserbauer is a regular resource for news media on hair loss and it’s treatment. She has written several book chapters including most recently on Eyebrows and Women’s Hair Loss, been featured on national TV (including The Doctors), and speaks regularly at international medical conferences concerning hair, hair loss, and its surgical and medical treatment. For over 10 years she has written a monthly feature article for the ISHRS Hair Transplant Forum International called “Hair’s the Question.” She loves research and was the Principal Investigator from Restoration Robotics and the ARTAS robot. She currently serves as the Vice-President for the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgeons and is the chair of both the written and oral board exams for that organization.
Her current favorite areas of expertise include follicular unit extraction (FUE), eyebrow transplantation, scalp micro pigmentation, and low level light therapy for hair growth.
Dr. Wasserbauer completed her undergraduate studies with a B.A. in Classical Archeology and minors in Chemistry and Biology at the prestigious Dartmouth College. She then went on to earn her medical degree from the renowned Medical College of Ohio where she was designated Class Leader. After finishing her training in Internal Medicine, Dr. Wasserbauer discovered she had a natural aptitude and eye for aesthetic surgery. Growing up in a family that experienced severe hair loss in both the men AND women, she found herself drawn to hair restoration and the dramatic change it could have on one’s appearance. She believes that restoring hair is a labor of love, and that hair is an essential component of a patient’s dignity.
Our surgical practice is devoted exclusively to hair. We perform traditional hair restoration and advanced Follicular Unit Extraction techniques, scar and plug revisions, and are one of the few hair surgeons to be chosen to participate in the latest FDA trials.
Not only is Dr. Wasserbauer one of less than 150 hair transplant surgeons certified by the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgeons, but she is also one of the few worldwide to have completed a full fellowship devoted entirely to cosmetic and corrective hair transplantation.
A good result means far more than having more hair on your head. We understand that every person is a unique individual with his or her own anatomical features and limitations as well as desires and expectations. We do not perform stock operations.
