Natural Hairline Restoration


As one of the most experienced and accredited hair restoration surgeons nationwide, Dr. Wasserbauer is a regular resource for medical symposiums and 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 President for the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgeons (ABHRS) 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 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.


Var Fultz - Hair Stylist

So Nice I Did It Twice And You Should Too!

I am 51 years old and I had moderate to severe hair loss at my front hairline and crown area. My friends and loved ones “jokingly “ called my crown a blank canvas. I am the owner of a upscale salon and a very accomplished hair stylist. Needless to say my hair loss was not humorous to me at all. Dr. Wasserbauer was kind sensitive and totally professional. She and her staff worked around my hectic schedule to find a time that worked for me. Dr Wasserbauer explained every aspect of the procedure until I felt comfortable with what was going to happen. The only discomfort I felt was the numbing injections, it was brief and totally bearable. The staff were caring and very professional. Even lunch was delicious. Following the home care instructions was simple and easy to follow. I’ve had two procedures now and can’t recommend Dr. Wasserbauer highly enough. Thank you Dr. Wasserbauer and your wonderful staff!

Your trusted Bay Area hair surgeon

The reason I chose Dr. Wasserbauer was that she and her staff were so professional and knowledgeable, but they also were very low key and down to earth. They made me feel like family and that I was very well cared for. – S.L.

Dr. Sara didn’t push me to make a decision and even gave me other patients to talk to so that I was comfortable making my decision. The whole process was relaxed and professional. – G.R.

The staff at Dr. Sara’s office is wonderful. I learned so much from them just by sitting in the waiting room! Everyone took their time answering all my questions about hair, and even random questions about health. I’ve already sent 2 of my friends to their office for consults. – R.T.
