About

Dr. Timothy Carman performs large sessions of ultra refined follicular unit transplantation with excellent results

Dr. Timothy Carman practices all the latest techniques such as Follicular Unit Excision (formerly known as Follicular Unit Extraction) (FUE), PRP Hair Loss Therapy and Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) and Follicular Unit Strip Surgery (FUSS). Male and female patients at La Jolla Hair Restoration now have more options than ever.

Dr. Carman has a strong background in plastic surgery and trained intensively with former Coalition member Dr. Bill Reed (now retired) during his one year fellowship in hair transplantation. Dr. Reed was very impressed with Dr. Carman's ethics and final results and invited him to join his clinic.

Dr. Timothy Carman is a skilled surgeon with an artist's eye that provides his patients with both natural looking and dense hair transplant results. He performs surgical hair restoration at his clinic exclusively and maintains a "patient first" philosophy by operating on only one patient per day. As a surgical practice, Dr. Carman feels that integriy is the cornerstone of an effective medical practice. Dr. Carman describes a successful hair transplant as "The Artful Expressoin of Modern Surgical Techniques". Thus, he combines his years of worldwide hair transplant experience with his aristry in order to provide his patients with the very best results.

Dr. Carman's hair transplant procedure is virtually undetectable and stands up over time. He uses advanced techniques so his patients can avoid being spotted and enjoy a natural and dense looking head of hair that mimics nature. The La Jolla Hair Restoration promise is to provide patients with a level of artistry uncommon in the hair transplant profession, with the results that will substantially improve the quality of each patient's life.

Dr. Carman puts the patient’s best interest above technical dogma, as evidenced by his compassion and commitment to the practice of hair restoration surgery. Dr. Carman's passion for great work and patients is also evident in his active participation on the Hair Transplant Network discussion forum. Dr. Carman also has a strong interest in painting and sculpting. His eye for design and careful attention to detail is evident in the hairline and crown patterns he creates for his patients.

Dr. Carman creates tiny incisions using the latest techniques in order to mimic the natural angulation and direction of the patient's hair. Given Dr. Carman's experience and artistry, he can easily work around existing hair without requiring shaving.

Dr. Carman is a member of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) and is also a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery and the American Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons (ASHRS).

Dr. Carman sits on the Board of Directors of The American Board of Hair Restoration Surgeons (ABHRS), and is a member of the ABHRS Ethics committee and Oral Examination Committee. As chairman of the ABHRS Recertification Exam Committee, he is directly responsible for creating and updating the ABHRS recertification exam. The American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery is internationally recognized as the only board certification focusing on hair restoration surgery for physicians worldwide. Every surgeon that is recognized as a Diplomate has participated and shown proficiency in both extensive written and oral examinations, each of which is statistically validated with regard to their ability to discriminate between those whose practice habits were consistent with safe, aesthetically sensitive hair restoration surgery.

Dr. Timothy Carman, his surgical technique, and patient results were carefully reviewed by our patient based online hair loss community.
