Of A Lifetime
Our hair is an integral part of our identity. When we lose it and notice that it isn’t growing back, we feel out of control, as if we’re losing a part of ourselves.
This experience is emotional, but you don’t have to feel hopeless. If you’re looking for a hair transplant with exceptional results, you’ve come to the right place.
The Scandinavian Hair Institute is home to Norway’s leading hair transplant surgeons. We serve patients from the United States seeking high-quality, natural results from globally recognized providers. We can offer our services at a more reasonable price than in the U.S., even with travel and luxury accommodation included. When you submit a request for a complimentary consultation, we will schedule a virtual complimentary consultation with you through Zoom, followed by an in-person complimentary consultation where a hair transplant specialist will meet with you at one of our U.S. complimentary consultation locations in Washington, D.C., New Jersey, or Philadelphia. Schedule today to begin a life-changing journey that you will remember every time you look in the mirror.
Our American and Norwegian patients enjoy full, thick hair and a natural-looking hairline - the gold standard in hair transplant. We like sharing stories and pictures from past patients so that you can see our work and make an educated decision about your hair transplant journey.
Superior hair transplant care at a better price with Norway's most trusted hair loss doctors.
Traveling to Norway for your treatment is a smart and cost-effective way to receive unparalleled care from our highly qualified medical staff. By staying at our onsite facility, you will have full access to expert care at every stage of your transplant. Our travel team makes all the arrangements for you. You only have to let us know when you want your procedure done, and we'll book everything for you! Currently, we are scheduling in-person complimentary consultations in the following cities:
Hair transplantation surgery is a delicate procedure. Having every step of the process done by a trained surgeon guarantees exceptional results. Most US clinics operate under technician-based care, meaning the trained surgeon will only perform a small portion of your treatment. Our surgical specialist will perform your entire treatment in our state-of-the-art, hygienic clinic. Our hair surgeons have performed thousands of hair restorations.
Additionally, many of our surgeons have trained and worked extensively in the United States. Under the skilled guidance of Dr. Emil George, the caring professionals of the Scandinavian Hair Institute tailor every treatment to the patient’s unique needs. Whether you would like to fill in scalp hair or grow hair anywhere on your face or body, we work tirelessly to provide exceptional care and natural-looking results that help you step into the next phase of your life with greater confidence and pride in your appearance.
Both men and women may experience hair loss as a result of many factors including genetics, aging, medical conditions, or stress. Although this is a relatively common experience, it can be a distressing one that changes the way you feel about yourself. Fortunately, solutions are available.
We employ both follicular unit extraction (FUE) and follicular unit transplantation (FUT) to help our patients achieve their goals of growing hair in any area of the body. Our surgeons and medical staff work alongside you to create a customized treatment plan that suits your needs.
We employ two main approaches for transplanting hair to restore healthy growth. In follicular unit extraction (FUE), your surgeon removes follicles individually, often from the back of the head or another part of the body (the latter is called BHT, or body hair transplant). With follicular unit transplant (FUT), we harvest a small strip of donor follicles before separating them for transplantation. Although FUT leaves a small, light scar at the donor site, this method may be preferable for some patients. During your initial complimentary consultation in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, or New Jersey, we will answer all of your questions and help you select the best approach for your needs.
Exosomes are like tiny messengers released by specific cells. They carry important signals that tell other cells how to behave. Scientists can now collect and deliver these messengers directly, which has shown promise in regrowing hair for people with hair loss. The Scandinavian Hair Institute of Oslo even includes exosome treatment as part of their hair transplant approach.
These exosomes come from special stem cells in human amniotic fluid. They are small enough to travel in the blood and carry important proteins to where they're needed.
Exosome therapy for hair loss involves injecting these messengers along with growth factors to stimulate hair regrowth.Hair transplant services
Achieving superior results requires a surgeon who understands that every patient’s needs are unique. Your unique genetic makeup can determine your hair’s texture and follicle distribution, factors that must be taken into account to perform treatment that restores your hair’s most natural appearance. We also work with patients seeking hair transplantation on the scalp, face, or body as part of a gender transition. We know how important hair can be to your self-image and want to assist you in realizing your ideal appearance.Ethnic and Transgender Hair Transplant Services
Facial hair differs from person to person, with some men growing thick, full beards while others grow little to none. Some people may wish to fill in a sparse or patchy beard using hair transplantation. A successful beard transplantation demands a surgeon who understands the unique differences between the texture, color, and growth patterns of facial hair versus scalp hair. Our highly experienced, world-class surgical team can help you grow a full, healthy beard without any tell-tale traces of a transplant treatment. Schedule your complimentary consultation in Washington D.C., Philadelphia, or New Jersey to get started.Beard Transplantation
In some cases where there is not enough hair available on the scalp to provide an adequate donation, a body hair transplant (BHT) provides another option. Hair may be transplanted from areas such as the chest, armpits, or beard to provide the results you are seeking. Our surgeons know how to select and transplant hair from elsewhere on the body in a way that provides natural, high-quality results.Body Hair Transplant
Many people seek surgical procedures for hair restoration, but not everyone receives the successful results they deserve. If you were unhappy with a previous transplant procedure, we have the advanced expertise needed to revise your results and provide you with an excellent outcome. We can begin assessing your case with a remote complimentary consultation and explain the revision strategies we can use to help you get the beautiful outcome you are seeking. We will then meet with you in person at one of our U.S. complimentary consultation locations in Washington D.C, Philadelphia, or New Jersey to fine-tune your treatment plan and prepare you for your trip to the Scandinavian Hair Institute.Hair Transplant Revision

Below, we detail the most common questions we receive
We use the most modern and advanced methods available in hair transplantation today, namely FUE and FUT. These methods involve taking hair from a donor area (usually at the back of the head) and then transplanting it to the site with little hair. The treatment takes place under local anesthetic and is not painful.
FUE hair transplant stands for Follicular Unit Extraction. This method involves using a specialized tool that extracts hair follicles in a random pattern and then transplants them to fill a receding hairline, balding, or thinning area. This method takes longer but is much less invasive and leaves no visible scarring.
Follicular Unit Transplantation, or FUT, is the method that involves harvesting a strip of skin from the back of the scalp. Genetically, follicles in this region do not contribute to balding. This skin has all the donor hair follicles that will be transplanted to the front or top of the scalp. This method is faster than FUE but leaves a horizontal scar at the back of the head, which is not a problem for those who do not wear a very short hairstyle.
A hair transplant surgery lasts 2.5 to 7 hours, depending on the number of implanted grafts. Extracted grafts surgically implanted determine the length of the operation. Each graft contains 1 to 5 strands of hair.
We perform FUE and FUT procedures with a local anesthetic so the treatment does not hurt. After the process, you may experience some slight discomfort. We will prescribe you an anti-inflammatory for any soreness.
Scarring is minimal with the FUE method and typically wholly invisible. When using FUT, there will be a scar across the back of the scalp that is only noticeable when wearing a very short hairstyle at the back.
A direct flight to Oslo from JFK takes about 7.5 hours. All travel costs, direct and indirect flights, are covered in the total cost of your surgery.
There will be a shedding period within the first couple of weeks, with new hair growth typically starting within two to four months after the procedure. Noticeable hair growth should be visible in about 10 to 14 weeks.
The results are long-lasting, as the transplanted follicles are from scalp areas where balding does not typically occur. These hardier follicles will continue to produce hair for many years to come.
Your return to work depends on the type of job you have. You need a few days off if you have a sedentary office job. You may need to allow a little more time if you have a very active job.
There are many reasons you lose your hair, but in the vast majority of cases, it is due to androgenic alopecia. The causes of alopecia are age and genetics; however, it is more common among men.
Many people find it embarrassing to lose their hair and walk around with weakened self-esteem for several years. Women can also experience hair loss due to androgenic alopecia, which is most often after age 60.
Other causes of hair loss can be autoimmune diseases such as alopecia, poor diet, significant stresses in life, eating disorders, anemia, or menopause.
Financing is available in most cases; we offer different plans to suit your needs, such as extended payment plans and no interest for six months. There is a $2,000 downpayment required to secure the date of your surgery - this will be applied to your total cost post procedure.
All travel expenses and accommodations are included in the cost of your procedure.
