Notable Hair Transplant Researcher Joins Prasad Cosmetic Surgery

Dr. Gary Hitzig moves New York City hair restoration practice to Prasad Cosmetic Surgery.

New York, NY, July 14, 2011 --( It’s a cosmetic team match made in heaven - Gary Hitzig, M.D., a notable hair transplant researcher and surgeon and Amiya Prasad, M.D., a prominent New York cosmetic surgeon, have merged their specialties into one practice - Prasad Cosmetic Surgery. Prasad Cosmetic Surgery has two Joint Commission hospital accredited practices located in Manhattan’s Upper East Side and on Long Island in Garden City, NY.

Dr. Amiya Prasad is a four time board certified cosmetic surgeon with a specialty in facial rejuvenation. He is among only a small group of surgeons - less than 500 worldwide - to earn a certified oculofacial (eyes and face) plastic surgeon designation. Dr. Prasad is highly respected teacher and innovator in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery and has been in private practice since 1998. He is one of a handful of cosmetic oculofacial plastic surgeons with these additional certifications making him a highly sought after specialist. His reputation for exceptional and natural cosmetic results has increased his popularity and made him sought after by patients from around the world.

Dr. Gary Hitzig was the first medical doctor to successfully clone hair using the FDA-approved ACell wound healing powder ACell MatriStem® MicroMatrix™. He then went on to discover that if you dissolve the MatriStem powder in a specially processed blood serum rich in the patient’s adult stem cells and inject it into the donor area and top of scalp where hair is being transplanted, the powder and blood serum combination acts like a hair growth accelerator and fertilizer. Most patients experience significant hair re-growth in just six months versus 12 months and the area where donor hair has been taken and transplanted is completely healed – with little or no signs of a scar.

Dr. Hitzig will be offering this advanced hair transplant procedure at Prasad Cosmetic Surgery in New York City and Garden City on Long Island, NY along with his ACell application to aid healing in cosmetic surgeries.

“Amazing medical research keeps the medical field advancing with better treatments and better results,” said Dr. Hitzig. “My research and work using the ACell wound healing powder in hair transplantation has shown impressive results in promoting hair growth and wound healing. This same technique will benefit Dr. Prasad’s cosmetic surgery patients. Teaming up together was a logical step to advance both of our medical specialties.”

“Dr. Hitzig and I have built successful private practices for each of our medical specialties,” said Dr. Prasad. “The timing was right to combine our expertise into one practice and use Dr. Hitzig’s proven results with ACell to further advance the field of cosmetic surgery and speed up our patients healing following surgery.”
