Hair loss has affected men all around the world for generations, but now thanks to the New Zealand Hair Transplantation Institute, Kiwis now have access to the easiest and most effective hair loss treatment yet.
Male pattern hair loss can start in the early to mid-20s for some men. The good news is that there are a range of remedies to fix this and restore confidence if needed.
With over thirty years’ medical experience, New Zealand trained Dr Garsing Wong founded the Auckland-based Sapphire Appearance Medicine Clinic, a non-surgical cosmetic clinic in 2005, and in 2015 established New Zealand’s first synthetic hair implantation clinic and now opened the New Zealand Hair Transplantation Institute, where he and Dr Thomas Doo, offer a full surgical setup specialising in Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), the leading procedure for hair restoration.
“People come in for different reasons, it is about making people feel comfortable within themselves,” says Doo, “some people come in who are in their thirties in need of FUE; then there are young people where we want to try and prevent hair loss, so we get them on medication; then people in their 50s who just want to look their age.”
Follicular Unit Extraction is a revolutionary hair loss treatment that precisely extracts healthy hair follicles and implants the healthy cells into the affected areas.
“This sustainable hair loss treatment is the first of its kind – minimising recovery time from months to weeks; maximising long-term results among patients,” says Dr Garsing Wong. “We ensure our patients have the best medical care, and when appropriate offer them hair transplants which are tailored to their needs.”

The advantage of Follicular Extraction is that it is the patient’s own hair growing says Drs Wong and Doo, and it minimises unnecessary harvest of hair follicles needed for future treatment.
Both the New Zealand Hair Transplantation Institute and Sapphire Appearance Medicine Clinic places a strong emphasis on ethical and effective practice, where the patient’s specific needs are catered for. Dr Wong and Doo, manage the best interest of the patient, by matching expectations with what they can realistically offer. There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach and each individual’s needs are dealt with on a case by case basis.
“The clinic works to benefit the patient and find the most effective and realistic action for each client, emphasising long-term care, quality and planning to suit individual needs,” says Dr Doo, “everyone is a piece of artwork, we are just doing touch-ups.”
Thanks to the New Zealand Hair Transplantation Institute, New Zealanders can comfortably discuss hair loss with a medical professional and seek an ethical and medical alternative to more invasive options.
“The special thing about us is that we are the only Kiwi trained and Kiwi-born full-time hair transplant doctors.”, they say, “We are here for the long run.”
Dr Garsing Wong and Dr Thomas Doo work 5 days a week and are committed to each of their patients’ full-time care, from initial consultation to post-operation follow-up.
