I've had two procedures with Dr. Raymond J. Konior. The first time was 5 years ago and the wait was two months. The second time? The wait was a little over a year. There's good reason for that because Dr. Konior is simply one of the best hair restoration surgeons in the world. Yes, world. Patients come from all over the globe for his services. Always do your research, but I would strongly recommend you include Dr. Konior in your list of surgeons to speak with. View On Yelp

All too often, poorly done hair restoration shows various telltale signs...

Common Concerns:

Woman pointing to hairline
Hairline Density

Continuous "thinning" is a large concern for many men and women, especially those who have undergone previous hair loss intervention.

Man pointing to bald spot

If your previous provider over-harvested hair from a certain area, their work can leave thin patches or bald spots throughout your head. 

Scar on scalp
Visible Scarring

Older techniques like strip harvesting can leave noticeable scars on the scalp. Our surgeons can carefully transplant hair to minimize scarring.

Tweezers picking up hair follicles out of petri dish
Widely Set Plugs

Inexperienced surgeons or technicians often lack the expertise to place hair in a natural-looking formation, leaving noticeable gaps and unnatural spacing.

Are You a Candidate for Hair Loss Retreatment?

Most men and women who come to the Chicago Hair Institute for retreatment are unhappy with their initial results, either because the procedure was outdated or the technique was not properly executed. In general, retreatment is a great option for those who:

Received Outdated Care

As little as 10 years ago, hair restoration specialists did not have access to the techniques and technology we have today. Hair loss retreatment is typically recommended for those who received a now-outdated therapy or for those who are unhappy with the outcomes of a more recent technique.

Are Unhappy with Results

Surgeons who lack the necessary skills, advanced training, and in-depth experience are more likely to create unsatisfactory outcomes. Dr. Konior can provide hair loss retreatment for individuals who are good candidates at our Chicago office whose first procedure simply did not achieve their goals.

Did Not Receive Professional Care

Additionally, a technician rather than the surgeon may have performed your initial hair loss treatments, which can also produce unsatisfactory outcomes. Technicians generally lack the knowledge of dermatology that is necessary to perform advanced hair loss treatment.

Additional Candidacy Requirements

In some cases, Dr. Konior may not recommend retreatment. The most common reason for not performing retreatment is a lack of sufficient hair, or donor graft availability. In instances where the donor site is depleted, both the donor site and the hairline will require repair before retreatment is possible. Another reason Dr. Konior may not recommend retreatment is if scarring from follicular unit extraction (FUE) or strip harvesting has resulted in a lack of sufficient hair. In some cases, when there is not enough hair on the scalp, Dr. Konior can take hair from elsewhere on the body.

Why Choose Us vs. Other Doctors

While other providers might offer hair restoration as a part of their services, they likely do not have the expertise and knowledge that our doctors do.

We understand the causes of hair loss and treat the root of the issue rather than covering up its effects. Our care is personalized, advanced, and highly aesthetic. Dr. Konior has performed thousands of hair transplant surgeries and have received international recognition for their work.

I did extensive research and came to he conclusion he is the best and the world. If you don't believe me then please spend a good 6 months investigating and if you go elsewhere then good luck! He spent 17 hours on my surgery and did ALL of the graft work. Yes he has a team of technicians to assist him (HT's are not a one man job). His overall manner and enthusiasm are first class and the results will astonish you. The only downside is he is booked out for months in advance so be prepared to wait a long time for surgery or consultation. It is well worth it. He is contactable via email and answers questions usually within 24 hours. By the way, I travelled 6,000 miles for my HT.

Surgery Is the Best Way to Reach Your Goals

In many cases, surgery is simply the most effective way to achieve your goals. While store-bought products and large franchises employ a one-size-fits-all approach to hair growth, each of our treatments is tailored to your unique needs and health history. Because we have a wide range of techniques available at our Chicago office, we can also combine treatments to help you achieve the best possible results.

Different Types of Hair Loss Retreatments Available at Our Chicago Office

The Treatment Timeline

Hair loss retreatment is a highly customized procedure. Each treatment is tailored to meet the needs of the individual, so no two procedures are exactly alike. In addition, the patient’s budget, time constraints, and desired results will all impact his or her own treatment plan. With these considerations in mind, patients can generally expect to undergo several steps:


Our doctors typically begin every consultation by asking the patient to describe specifically what he or she is unhappy with, as well as immediate and long-term goals. Some common reasons for dissatisfaction include hairline density, problems with over-harvesting, scarring, and widely set plugs.


Based upon your goals for treatment and the specific problems, the doctor can discuss the treatment approach that can best achieve your desired results. We will draft a customized blueprint for your treatment, which will include the specific treatment methods and a general timeline. 


Depending on their unique needs, some candidates will require extractions, while others may require grafts. Retreatment can require as little as two to three sessions or as many as six sessions, and each of these visits may differ from the other. 

Hair Growth

One of the primary factors in determining the success of a specific procedure is that we must allow time for the hair to grow out. Depending on the total number of procedures required, this could create a treatment timeline of anywhere from just several weeks to a year or more. 

Are You a Woman Who Is Unhappy with Her Previous Treatments?

Men aren't the only ones who struggle with baldness or receding hairlines, and our doctors cater to the unique needs of women, too.

The first step in retreatment is determining the cause of hair loss. The most common cause of female hair loss is androgenetic alopecia. Other causes include medical conditions like thyroid disorders, low iron, and anemia. Our doctors will conduct a detailed medical history and physical exam, laboratory tests, and biopsies to determine the exact cause and recommend the most effective treatment. While androgenetic alopecia is treated with medical and surgical options, scarring conditions are treated with medications and may disqualify you from hair loss treatment.

Nervous about the Cost of Retreatment?

For many patients, the idea of exploring hair loss retreatment after being disappointed the first time around can be very daunting. Hair loss solutions are expensive, and many men and women worry that they won't get a satisfying return on their investment.
