Why Dr. Sergio Camacho is Recommended
Dr. Camacho has performed hair transplant surgery exclusively in his practice since 2005. Every surgical step is performed by a surgeon, Dr. Sergio Camacho, and Dr. Paola Pareja, including extracting grafts, creating recipient sites, and implanting the grafts. Dr. Camacho uses the Mamba Trivellini system for harvesting grafts and the Lion implanter pen to implant the grafts. Dr. Camacho alternates between pre-made incisions and direct hair implantation (DHI), depending on the patient's scalp elasticity.
Dr. Camacho is a hands-on surgeon. Dr. Camacho performs one surgery per day. His team of experienced and trained technicians and nurses have over a decade of experience. They assist in non-surgical steps, such as preparing the operating room, counting, and sorting grafts, loading implanter pens, and assisting patients with post-operative care. Every single graft is sorted under stereoscopic microscopes. Dr. Camacho consults with every patient and plans and designs every procedure. Dr. Paola Pareja assists Dr. Camacho in extracting grafts under his supervision.
Dr. Camacho prefers a conservative approach with donor management at the top of his priorities. Preserving the donor is a must in his practice. Dr. Camacho does not exceed 3,000 grafts per day to avoid fatigue and to manage the donor appropriately. If more grafts are required, he will extend the surgery to the next day or possibly the next year to ensure the donor isn't overharvested and anesthesia is limited.
