He is honored to be among the first 30 physicians worldwide to be certified and one of the first doctors in the world to meet all of the high standards, requirements, and qualifications to become a Diplomat of American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery (ABHRS). He is the president and founder of Cosmetic Hair Restoration Surgery Institute, which is one of the finest hair restoration surgery and hair loss treatment centers in the country.

Dr. Meshkin’s passion and dedication to the art of hair restoration surgery began in 1979 while attending UCLA. He was doing volunteer work at a local plastic surgery clinic, which occasionally performed hair transplant procedures. It fascinated him that with a minor surgical procedure, people suffering from hair loss could regain their hair – thereby changing their entire self-image and outlook on life.
Dr. Meshkin decided to pursue his career in the field of hair restoration surgery and aid in the perfection of the technique. He joined the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery during which time he was trained by various pioneers in the field of hair restoration surgery. He was trained for three years learning about all aspects of hair restoration surgery including: scalp reduction, flap surgery, scalp lifting, scalp expansion, scalp extension, hair transplantation and reconstructive surgery.
