Dr. Robert Leonard will remain with the practice as Founder and transplant surgeon and will continue to consult with patients and perform procedures on a slightly reduced schedule.
Dr. Lopresti has trained exclusively with Dr. Leonard in the art and science of hair restoration surgery for the last five years, “I have had the unique honor of learning from Dr. Leonard, arguably one of the most respected hair restoration surgeons in the country,” said Dr. Matthew Lopresti. “Working by his side on a daily basis has been an invaluable experience and his tutelage and confidence in me has made me the surgeon that I am today.”

He completed his medical internship at St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Pennsylvania, his residency at Boston Medical Center, and his fellowship at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Lopresti is a noted expert in the follicular unit excision (FUE) technique, where hair follicles are individually harvested from the donor area to ultimately create a natural looking transplant result.
“We take pride in giving our patients the utmost care and respect they deserve and I look forward to this next chapter with them – and with my mentor Dr. Leonard – at Leonard Hair Transplant Associates,” said Dr. Lopresti. “My goal is to continue to grow our practice, as well as make my own contributions to the field of hair restoration.”
