Vito C. Quatela, M.D., FACS
Board-Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon
Compassionate and dedicated to personalized patient care, Dr. Quatela is a board-certified facial plastic surgeon recognized worldwide for his expertise in facial rejuvenation. He established the Quatela Center for Plastic Surgery in Rochester, New York to provide excellence in aesthetic surgery.
The unnatural hair plugs from the 1970s and 1980s are a procedure of the past in the field of hair transplant surgery. But even though hair restoration techniques are more advanced than ever, achieving excellent, natural-looking results still requires an experienced surgeon who understands the artistic nature of the procedure. Getting the results you desire requires more than simply extracting hair follicles from one area of the scalp and transferring them to another area. It calls for an understanding of the way hair grows, in order to best position the follicles. Dr. Quatela and Dr. Lee have that understanding, and they use it to ensure that each patient’s results will blend with the existing hair and look natural.
Heather Lee, M.D.
Board-Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon
A board-certified facial plastic surgeon and a board-certified otolaryngologist–head and neck surgeon, Dr. Lee is dedicated to improving the lives of adults and children by using her surgical talents. She specializes in procedures of the face and head including facelift, functional and cosmetic nose surgery, blepharoplasty, and injectable treatments.
You have options, of course, when it comes to selecting a hair restoration specialist. We believe that, because of their experience and the quality of results Dr. Quatela and Dr. Lee achieve, it is worth traveling to our hair restoration center even if you’re traveling from Buffalo, Syracuse, elsewhere in New York, or even other parts of the country. Hair restoration surgery represents an investment in a new you, and the choice of surgeon shouldn’t be based solely on his or her proximity.
