Dr. Peter Panagotacos: True Growth

By James Florence, Diamond Certified Resource Reporter

SAN FRANCISCO – Dr. Peter Panagotacos has been performing hair transplants for more than 40 years, during which time he’s gained prominence as a leading authority in his field. Still, even with all his accomplishments, he continues to find fulfillment in the smallest of places. “I get great satisfaction from simple gestures of gratitude from my patients, whether it’s a Christmas card or an out-of-the-blue phone call,” he says. “I worked very hard to get to the top of my field, and I teach around the world, but the thing that keeps me going is the patient who says, ‘Thank you very much, you changed my life.’”

When Peter first entered medical school in the 1960s, the hair replacement industry was still in its infancy. “It was so new that there weren’t any formal training programs in place for dermatology students to learn how to do hair transplants,” he explains. “Fortunately, I had the advantage of working with a fellow who was one of the first people in the United States to perform a hair transplant in the late ’50s.” Following graduation, Peter set up his dermatology practice in San Francisco, where he decided to include hair transplantation as one of his services. It wasn’t long before he was doing more hair transplants than anybody else in San Francisco. Today, Dr. Panagotacos’ patients continue to benefit from his extensive expertise.

A lifetime resident of the City by the Bay, Peter is a San Franciscan in the fullest sense of the word. “This is my home town—I live on the same block I grew up on,” he says. “I was here when San Francisco was still a place where everybody knew each other. It was a completely different atmosphere.” While the setting has since changed, Peter continues to enjoy the things that make San Francisco one of the finest cities in the country. “San Francisco has all the benefits of a large small town, yet it’s still a world-class city. I travel all over the world, but I’m always happy to come home.”

Outside of his profession, Peter enjoys a variety of interests and pastimes, from showing his fleet of vintage Triumph Mayflower cars to retailing his own line of olive oil. One of his principal pursuits is traveling, to which he devotes an average of two months each year. “Some of my more memorable excursions have been a dinosaur dig in Mongolia, where I found a fossilized dinosaur egg, and a two-month trip that began in Uzbekistan and ended in China,” he says. “However, the most exciting place I’ve been by far is the Congo, where I spent some time living among a Pygmy tribe in the early ’70s.”

When asked the first thing he would do if he could retire tomorrow, Peter says he would continue to share the benefits of hair transplantation in one way or another. “I’m always being invited to teach at locations throughout the world, so even if I didn’t come to work in my office, I would probably be teaching and performing hair transplantation somewhere else.”

Ask Me Anything!

Q: What’s your favorite book?
A: Pygmy Kitabu by Jean-Pierre Hallet. It’s essentially an anthropological and sociological study of the African Pygmies, and it’s of particular interest to me since I spent some time among a Pygmy tribe.

Q: Who’s the best James Bond?
A: Sean Connery.

Q: What’s your favorite restaurant?
A: Kokkari Estiatorio in San Francisco.

Q: Do you speak any foreign languages?
A: I speak some Greek.

Q: What’s the strangest food you’ve ever eaten?
A: I had some barbecued meat with the Maasai people in northern Kenya. I wasn’t sure what it was; I just smiled and ate it.

Q: What’s your favorite snack?
A: Roasted almonds.

Know What You Want
What to Ask Yourself Before Selecting a Hair Replacement Clinic in Santa Clara County

Many factors should be contemplated before selecting a hair replacement clinic in Santa Clara County, including the larger cities San Jose, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, Mountain View, and Milpitas. Be sure to do your research carefully so that you can determine which hair regrowth physician will be able to accommodate your needs the best. Because everyone is different, write down as much as possible regarding what you’re searching for before you begin your research:

  • Do I want a Diamond Certified company that is rated best in quality and backed by the Diamond Certified Guarantee?
  • Am I too young to have a hair transplant?
  • What are my options financially? The cost of hair transplantation in Santa Clara County can be expensive and is not covered by insurance.
  • Will I need future transplants? If your hair loss has not stabilized, you may need to have more procedures done in the future.
  • How many grafts will I need? Depending on the severity, the procedure may need to be done in stages.

What To Ask In Person

The next step is to interview hair transplantation physicians in the cities of Palo Alto, Cupertino, Gilroy, Campbell, and Morgan Hill and other areas of Santa Clara County.

Don't go alone for this interview. Bring along a friend or family member for support. Two people will hear more and remember more.

Questions you might want to ask when interviewing Santa Clara County hair transplant clinics include:

  • What types of procedures do you perform for hair transplantation?
  • What particular procedure do you recommend for me to have done in order to have the most success?
  • Are there other physicians in this office with you? And if so, will I have the same physician from the beginning to the end of treatment?
  • What complications could I experience from the procedure?
  • How long did you train with other doctors before you began performing the procedures? (One year would be ideal.)
  • What conferences and symposiums do you attend to stay current?
  • What contact information do you have on file for me? What else do you need in order to reach me with updates about my hair transplantation procedure?

  • What To Ask References
    Questions for References of Hair Transplant Clinics in Santa Clara County

    It’s best to choose a Diamond Certified hair transplantation company in Santa Clara County because all certified companies have passed an in-depth ratings process that most other companies can’t pass. If you want quality from a hair transplantation company in Santa Clara County and the greater Bay Area, you can have confidence choosing a Diamond Certified company. Diamond Certified reports are available online for all certified companies. And you’ll never be fooled by fake reviews. That’s because all research is performed in live telephone interviews of actual customers.

    If you can’t locate a Diamond Certified hair transplantation company within reach in Santa Clara County, including the larger cities of San Jose, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, Mountain View, and Milpitas, you’ll have to do some research on your own. If you do, it’s wise to call some references provided by your hair transplantation physician. Keep in mind, though, that references provided to you by the hair transplantation company are not equal in value to the large random sample of customers surveyed during the Diamond Certified ratings process. That’s because references given to customers from companies are cherry-picked instead of randomly selected from all their customers. So the contractors will likely give you a few customers to call that they know are happy with the results of the hair transplant procedure.

    If you do call references on your own, specifically ask for a list of the company’s ten recent customers. This will help avoid them giving you the names of only customers they know were satisfied. Following are questions to help guide you as you speak with the reference.

    • What specific procedure did the physician use for your hair transplantation?
    • Are you fully satisfied with the hair transplant surgery results?
    • Did the physician communicate well and listen attentively to you?
    • Do you feel like the cost of the procedure was fair? Did the total cost reflect the estimate that you were provided?
    • What did you like the best about the hair regrowth doctor that provided the hair transplantation procedure?
    • Would you return to the physician in the future for further hair transplant procedures?
    • Would you/have you recommended this hair replacement physician for a hair transplantation procedure?

    Finding and Hiring a Good Santa Clara County Hair Transplantation Clinic

  • How To Work With
    The Price of Hair Transplant Procedures in Santa Clara County

    When selecting a hair transplant clinic in Santa Clara County, including the larger cities of Palo Alto, Cupertino, Gilroy, Campbell, and Morgan Hill, cheaper is not necessarily better. If the clinic is more affordable, you will need to take extra precautions to ensure that they are just as qualified as the more expensive clinic. Be sure to check the credentials of both the clinic and the staff before going ahead with the surgery. Don’t be scared to ask how long they’ve been in business or how many transplants they have performed. Also, be sure to speak with former clients so that you can see their results. There are clinics available that specialize in affordable hair transplants in order to help those who cannot afford the more expensive clinics. But it is important to be sure you’re not sacrificing quality and expertise for a cheaper price.

    If you are troubled by hair loss and have been diagnosed as a candidate for hair transplant surgery, yet you are alarmed about the cost, there are a few factors to consider. What are your monthly and yearly costs of prescription or over the counter hair loss treatments? Over the course of a lifetime, they may equal more than the cost of a hair transplant procedure. Remember that a hair transplant procedure is permanent. Furthermore, no maintenance is required.

    One way to lower the cost of your hair transplant procedure is to be realistic about your expectations. Though it would be nice to have a full head of hair again as you did in your late teens or early twenties, that might not be practical. Discuss with your doctor how to achieve a more natural look rather than worry about thickness. This will lower your overall price yet still give you back some of the hair you’ve lost over the years.

    Make Sure Your Hair Transplant Quote Is Correct

    There are a wide range of costs from one Santa Clara County hair transplant clinic to another. So before you choose the cheapest hair transplant clinic based on the initial quote they give you, make sure that their estimate is really accurate.

    First of all, question the hair transplant company regarding how many follicles they are estimating you will need transplanted. The number of follicles used determines the price you will pay. Lower quotes mean few follicles will be transplanted. So if you are only looking for a minor improvement in the thickness of your hair overall, or a little bit of hair regrowth, then a small number of follicles will be enough. But if you want a noticeable difference after your hair transplant, you may want to reconsider. A cheap hair transplant won’t actually be a bargain if you are disappointed with the results of your hair replacement treatments.

    Last of all, you may want to consider whether or not the quote is really accurate. Some hair transplant companies will purposefully quote you a cheaper overall cost simply to get your business. Once you commit to the procedure, however, the physician my up the overall price by explaining to you how much happier you would be with more follicles.

    The best course of action when you are looking for a hair transplant company is to discuss your particular goals with the physician and then determine which company will meet those goals for the best price.

Q: Does transplanted hair grow like regular hair?
A: Yes. Entire hair follicles are moved from dense areas to thin areas during a hair transplant. Once the hairs are transplanted, they will continue to grow as they did before.

Q: How much does a hair transplant cost?
A: The cost of a hair transplant procedure varies from company to company or physician to physician. Typically the fee is based on a base price plus the number of required grafts, which can vary from patient to patient. Be sure to ask if there are any discount programs available.

Q: Why is there a four- to six-month wait for new hair growth after a transplant or pharmaceutical treatment?
A: Usually it takes an average of four to six months for new hair to grow. This is because the hair follicles have to shift from a resting stage to a growing stage. Also the new hairs have to grow enough to be noticeable.

Q: Are hair transplants permanent?
A: As long as the hair continues to grow in the area from which it was planted the hair transplant will last. Typically the hairs in the back and sides of your head will remain all of your life. But they do tend to thin some. The ideal treatment is to take a medication called Propecia or another similar product. This will help keep the thickness of your hair so that it does not thin out more after the transplant.

Q: Is there a way to prevent or stop hair loss?
A: There are a variety of medications that can prevent hair loss. One of the key methods for these medications to work is to use them consistently.

Q: Is there an alternative to Propecia for preventing hair loss?
A: Many physicians recommend Propecia as it is found to be effective. It is proven to be the best oral medication for hair loss. Like all prescription medications, there are some side effects so they must be taken under a physician’s care. However, the overall safety record of Propecia is very good.

Q: Is there a link between stress and hair loss?
A: Stress can definitely cause hair loss. This is a condition called telogen effluvium. Fortunately, the loss is usually temporary which means that the hair will grow back after the stress is relieved.
