5 out of 5 stars Scalp Micropigmentation

35 Year Old Male - Los Angeles, CA

Dr. Pak is the perfect person for this line of work. He had a genuine concern for my concerns while still managing to tell me what I needed to hear not what you wanted to hear. He takes a great deal of pride in his work and it was evident on my results. The staff was also fantastic. Christine, who did some of my work, was excellent. She took care of all my needs with top notch professionalism. If you are thinking about getting SMP done; Dr. Pak is your man!! The star ratings are based on my personal observations.

Best Procedure Ever..! Los Angeles, CA

I contacted The New Hair Instituerequesting an appointment for a consult and spoke with Paul. Paul was able to give me all the information needed over the phone and scheduled me an appointment to see Dr Pak. When I came into the office, I was able to meet meet Paul and Mach who handle the front desk. They are very knowledgeable about the procedures the office offers. Then I met with Dr Pak, whom I consulted about hair transplant procedures. I had consulted with other doctors about Hair Transplant but was never convinced about this procedure. Dr Pak took the time and explained what is involved and also gave me very realistic results if I did this procedure with him. Dr Pak promised the results, him and his staff will be able to provide. I was able to talked to previous patients and see results in person, not just pictures. I felt comfortable and decided to give Dr Pak and his office a chance... It's been now over one year post procedure, I have no regrets. Dr Pak and his staff (Ema and Caroline) did a great job...! Thank you Dr Pak.

45-50 Year Old with Thinned Top and Crown. Los Angeles, CA

Dr. Pak and his assistants Carolyn and Emma worked on me from about 7:30AM to around 3PM with about 45 minute break for lunch, which they brought in for me. The original plan was for 2000 grafts with a possible 2nd transplant later in a few years only if I feel I wanted one. The procedure went well, the staff were all very nice and made sure I was comfortable. At the end of the prodecure, I was informed they actually were able to harvest 1750 grafts instead and would credit and refund me the overpayment, which I appreciated their honesty. I am a dentist who does dental implants so I do understand that sometimes it is impossible to get exactly what was calculated pre-surgery and better to be wise and exercise good judgement during the procedure than be aggressive and possibly do damage to the patient, should a second procedure is warranted or desired later. It is now 1 month since the transplant and I can't wait to see new hair grow in , in the next several months. Again, the office here is very attentive and supportive before, during and after the procedure. You can email or call them and they will answer your questions. I do recommend getting the free consultation and meeting and talking to other patients who had the procedure done and ask as many questions as you want. They give you the facts , the proofs of previous patients results and then allow you to make an informed decision , and therefore easier for you to get the procedure you know you wanted a long time ago and you finally feel you're at the right place with the right doctor. Good luck!

5 out of 5 stars FUE Hair Transplant

FUE Beard Transplant on a 46 Year Old Man - Los Angeles, CA

Dr. Pak was very courteous and showed great understanding of my desire to improve and restore my facial hair. He was very thorough in his explanation of the procedure and made it clear that this was not a fast-food beard transplant and that it could take six to 12 months to see the final results. There was nothing fake about our meeting. I was concerned that I would end up with a doctor that would try some slick sales routine scripted for the general public. Instead, I found the consultation to be very much tailored to my needs based on what is possible for my particular case. On the day of the procedure, Dr. Pak made every attempt to ensure that I was comfortable. From watching Netflix to giving me a light sedative to help me get through the procedure. His technical staff was exceptional. I believe this is a direct reflection of Dr. Pak's professionalism and medical competence. He has that special ability of setting the example and having others want to mimic that same standard. He is a true leader in the field of hair transplantation. Dr. Pak is a truth sayer. In the field of cosmetic surgery, that is a rare find. He says everything like it is. After being treated by Dr. Pak at the New Hair Institute, I would not trust anyone else with any future hair transplant needs. He is a doctor who will not disappoint you. He is really outstanding.

5 out of 5 stars Scalp Micropigmentation

Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP) on 46 Year-old Male

On my initial meeting with Dr. Pak, I was surprised that he had a very friendly demeanor and did not have a snobby or "I'm better than you are" attitude that I experienced with other physicians in the field of cosmetic surgery. He's a down to earth guy with a strong intuitive sense of what his patients are looking for. This intuitiveness comes from his years of experience and his very creative technical mind. Dr. Pak is certainly not a run-of-the-mill hair transplant specialist. He is responsible for designing, testing and building a robotic system to aid in the single hair extraction process used in hair transplant procedures. This robotic system is not only used in his office but in hair transplant clinics throughout the U.S. and around the world. In short, his invention revolutionized hair transplantation as it is done today. As for the Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP) procedure, again he is a pioneer. He studied along side the man who originally developed SMP. Dr. Pak took what he learned with him and refined the procedure to truly make it his own. His analytical approach to every case he treats only improves the process for future patients. I was a witness to this analytical approach during my SMP sessions. I could clearly see that Dr. Pak was thoroughly examining the work done on my scalp and making mental notes for later use. He did not examine the progress on my scalp with a cookie cutter approach. Instead, he took great interest in how my skin was reacting and holding the pigment; suggesting modifications to the inking techniques to the technician when necessary. In my book, Dr. Pak rates as one of the exceptionally few qualified doctors to perform Scalp Micro Pigmentation.

38 Year Old FUE Patient (Crown) - Los Angeles, CA

Dr. Pak was very clear, informative and accessible throughout every step of the process. He even talked me out of additional work, which made me realize he wasn't just in it for the work but for the best results / interest of his clients. He's great and I'd recommend him to anyone.

I never felt awkward or stupid when interacting with Dr. Jae Pak. He will give you an honest assessment and never once tried to sell me on any procedure or gimmick. Or as the common term that is now trending, he has great bedside manner. I highly recommend him and would return but fortune has it that I am done. I sometimes wish I initially went to him.
