Chicago Hair Restoration Expert for Men and Women

Dr. Yates is an incredible leader in hair restoration and is one of the only surgeons in the world who is a true specialist in every technique currently available for hair restoration. Yes, he can perform a strip or FUT procedure, but chooses not to.  Dr. Yates only performs minimally invasive FUE hair transplants. Within the specialty of FUE, he is able to offer unique and custom treatments for each of his patients.

Dr. Yates utilizes the ARTAS robotic hair transplant system as well as several manual FUE techniques. He can perform FUE with the traditional shaved donor area but he also specializes in hair-sparing techniques that allow the FUE technique to be performed in and around the longer hair in the back and sides without shaving your head.

Body hair transplants are another area of specialty for Dr. Yates. If you have been told you are “tapped out” and no longer have enough donor hair for a hair transplant, there is no reason to despair. Dr. Yates can successfully harvest hair from the nape of the neck, beard area, chest and back.

Yates Hair Science Group also offers scalp micro-pigmentation (SMP) for people who have limited donor hair, scarring or to augment closely cropped hair-styles.
