Timothy P. Carman, MD, FISHRS 

Dr. Timothy Carman is a native La Jollan, and as such began his undergraduate training at the University of California at San Diego (UCSD) where he triple-majored in Physiological Psychology, Mammalian Physiology, and Biochemistry and Cell Biology, with a minor in Visual Arts. Following graduation he attended George Washington University School of Medicine. He went on to receive his training in General and Trauma Surgery at Washington Hospital Center in Washington, DC, and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills, California.

Ultimately, in 1994, Dr. Carman chose a career in Emergency Medicine, as this allowed him to practice his surgical skills, as well as afford him a flexible schedule that would allow him to devote time to his family and interests outside of Medicine, namely painting, sculpting and music composition.

Beginning around the year 2000, Dr. Carman decided to make the transition into private practice, specifically to specialize in cosmetic procedures, as this seemed the best marriage of his skills as a surgeon and artist. He was accepted into and successfully completed a two-year Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship at USC affiliated Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Hospital, where his cases included pediatric burn patients referred from the USC Burn Unit. Among the varied procedures performed on these individuals, the recreation/reconstruction of the natural features of the face and hair-bearing scalp seemed to impart the greatest impact on his patients’ confidence and self-esteem.

From those experiences, Dr. Carman decided to concentrate the focus of his practice on procedures involving the head and neck, and more specifically, to hair transplantation. Dr. Carman has been a member of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons since 2003, and his specialty training includes serving a year-long fellowship in hair restoration surgery which is recognized by all the leading hair restoration societies. He is a Diplomate of The American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery, and is an Inaugural Fellow of the ISHRS.
