Dr. Edmond Griffin performs exclusive hair transplant surgery at his clinic in Atlanta and specializes in both FUT/Strip and FUE. He is a board certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon who has specialized in hair transplantation since 1976, performing thousands of hair transplant procedures. He has lectured and written extensively over the years in advancing hair transplantation and is a highly regarded expert on state of the art hair transplantation. Cosmetic surgeons from around the world regularly visit his clinic to observe his very refined hair transplantation techniques.
I had the opportunity to visit his clinic and watch him perform surgery in his clinic in Atlanta. I was very impressed with he and his staff’s, incredible attention to detail, patient care, and artistry. He and his clinic and the all micro procedure they perform are absolutely first rate by international standards.
During his advanced FUT/Strip procedures, Dr. Griffin’s very experienced staff prepare all the 1,2,3, and 4 follicular unit grafts using microscopes. The very refined grafts his staff produces are some of the most impressive micro grafts I have ever seen. Dr. Griffin carefully creates all the incisions for these grafts, determining the pattern and direction of the new hair. He then works with his technicians in placing the micro grafts.
Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a safe and minimally invasive procedure that individually extracts one follicular unit at a time, instead of a donor strip. This technique is ideal for patients who would like to wear their hair cropped short as it leaves no linear scar in the donor area. Dr. Griffin utilies the NeoGraft Hair Transplant Machine, an automated hair transplant device containing several benefits for patients. In Dr. Griffin's hands, The NeoGraft reduces procedure time and decreases the risk of mechanical injury to the grafts because it doesn’t require forceps during extraction unlike all other forms of FUE.
Due to the large amount of time and attention he and his staff devote to the patient, they often limit themselves to doing only one patient per day. In addition to doing excellent large all micro hair transplantation sessions, he also frequently repairs patients who have had outdated procedures performed.
He is very committed to using the most advanced technology and techniques to assure that his patients get optimal results with a minimum of discomfort. He uses the pain free “Wand” in place of needles for administering anesthesia to make the procedure virtually pain free. He also often uses advanced digital imaging aids for patient education during his consultations. Dr. Griffin’s strong background as a dermatologic surgeon has enabled him to develop strong competencies, not only in performing follicular unit hair transplant surgery, but also in performing bald scalp reduction procedures. However, he now rarely performs these procedures, since current hair transplant procedures have rendered these procedures unnecessary.
Unlike many of the commercial hair transplant clinics that advertise aggressively in the media, Dr. Griffin does very little advertising. Instead he receives the majority of his patients as referrals from his many happy patients and from the many cosmetic surgeons who know the quality of his work.
His focus on patient care over marketing allows him to keep his fees surprisingly low. Given his excellent reputation and results, I believe he is one of the best values in United States.
