Marketplace News: Local office offers low-cost hair restoration

OCEANSIDE — If every business operated on the same principles as MyHairTransplantMD, gone would be the days of vague and misleading online pricing.


You would never be hit with hidden fees and unrealistic promises would be obsolete. And once you’ve made the decision to go forward with the hair restoration you’ve been considering, Daniel J. Wagner, CEO at MyHairTransplantMD, assures you that you will know up front the entire cost and scope of the process to give you the head of hair you desire. The MyHairTransplantMD website offers clear information about the consultation and even the price.


“My goal is for people to be able to make informed decisions and have realistic expectations about their hair restoration options,” Wagner said. But his decision to be completely transparent with potential clients has come with some criticism. “Our competitors don’t lay everything out for people the way that we do,” he said. “I’ve been criticized for having all of the information on our website. I’ve been told I should leave something to the imagination. But I don’t want to do it that way. I want people to see what we do, how we do it and how much it will cost them.”

Another frequent tactic of other offices that offer hair restoration is to lead clients to believe that a full head of hair can be achieved in one procedure. “When a client is looking to restore an area that used to have 20,000 hairs, there are limitations to what we can do in one visit,” Wagner said. “We often have people come in telling us that the guy down the street said they could get their hair back in just one visit. What I tell people is that if you lost your hair gradually, we are going to restore it gradually. We will only do as much as is medically safe to deliver the results you want.”

He added that his team always informs clients exactly what it will take to fully restore their hair.

“If you have no hair, you didn’t lose it overnight,” Wagner said. “It’s not possible to come in today and leave with a full head of hair. The hairs are so close together, it’s a gradual process.

For those clients looking to add to thinning hair, the process involves increasing the density. “As you lose your hair, we add it,” Wagner said.

MyHairTransplantMD does not mislead clients by quoting less than it would take for the results clients are looking for. “We take the measurements, tell clients, ‘This is what it’s going to take to achieve the results you want,” Wagner said. “We don’t intentionally mislead clients by underestimating what it’s going to take to reach their desired goal. We back it up based on hair science — which is math — not opinion.”

“Our prices are competitive, and posted right on our website. We want to tell you honestly what it will take. And if you’re happy after one procedure, you are free to go on your way. We want you to know going in what it’s really going to take, but you don’t have to complete the entire plan.”

MyHairTransplantMD is located at 2103 S. El Camino Real, Suite 201 in Oceanside. For a step-by-step guide to their consultation process and a complete explanation of pricing, call the office at (800) 262-2017 or visit their website at
