Surgical Hair Replacement

Thinning hair can be disappointing, frustrating, frightening—in fact, it can be downright devastating. Regardless of the underlying cause, hair loss is always an emotional experience. It does not have to be a permanent one, however. There are ways to restore a full, healthy head of hair and a natural hairline. Since 1987, Mane Image Hair Restoration Clinic has provided men and women with methods for doing exactly that.

The first step toward hair replacement is simply to visit the Mane Image clinic in Merrillville, Indiana. We are the only hair restoration center of our kind in the area, and our 6100 sq. ft. facility is made to be warm, welcoming, and accommodating. Our staff, likewise, will impress you with friendliness and professionalism. If it’s your first visit with Mane Image, we’ll do a private evaluation, on the house.

The goal of this evaluation will be to determine which hair loss solution best fits your needs. In some cases, we may recommend surgical solutions, which can offer some incredibly natural-looking and long-lasting effects with regard to hair replacement. Hair transplantation procedures have grown by leaps and bounds, and our team can offer the best, safest, and most effective solutions.

Hair Replacement Surgery at Mane Image with Ziering Medical

Mane Image is now partnering with Ziering Medical. In addition to free consultations and experienced surgeons, Mane Image offers other services to make the surgical hair restoration process go more smoothly—including topical solutions and advanced approaches to trichology that help to nurture transplanted hair, heal the scalp, and ensure the best possible results. When you choose Mane Image for your surgical hair transplant, we will walk this journey with you beginning with helping you prepare for the procedure day to the day after procedure care, post-procedure in-clinic laser treatments, and periodic checkups for a year after the procedure. And now, thanks to our partnership with Ziering Medical, we're offering the ARTAS Robotic (FUE) System. Its one-of-a-kind technology helps eliminates scarring, complications, fatigue and downtime associated with existing surgical techniques.

"In my late 20’s, my hair started getting thinner and thinner. My career was really beginning to take off and gain momentum. I was in the press and having my picture taken, and I was not comfortable with what I was seeing. I became fraught with so many insecurities about my hair loss. I knew I wanted to do something about it, but I was so worried about making a bad decision and becoming a ‘bad hair horror story.’ I did A LOT of research and found Dr. Ziering. Two years and two procedures later, I couldn’t be more content with my results. My hairline looks natural. There’s no visible scarring. I feel like years have been erased from my face! And best of all, my confidence is back!"

Meet Expert Hair Restoration Surgeon Dr. Rae Lynne Kinler

Dr. Rae Lynne Kinler, M.D., is one of the foremost authorities in Microscopic Follicular Unit Transplantation (MFUT) in the United States. She is particularly skilled in Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedures, including manual FUE and ARTAS Robotics procedures. A researcher with a keen interest in technology, she routinely participates in the research and development of Restoration Robotics.

She then received a Trauma Fellowship from Hartford Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut, and completed an Aesthetic Medicine Fellowship at Dolce Vida Medical Spa in Shelton, Connecticut.

Her fascination with hair loss and restoration led her to pursue a Hair Transplant Fellowship under Dr. Craig L. Ziering, the leading hair-transplant surgeon in the United States. She chose Ziering because (in her own words) “in order to be the best, you have to be trained by the best.” During her fellowship, she became extremely proficient in MFUT, FUE, and ARTAS Robotics and made a name for herself as one of the top FUE surgeons.
