Michael L. Hughes, MD and Craig Barton, MD

Dr. Michael L. Hughes is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, a Member of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons (ISHRS), Member of the International Alliance of Hair Restoration Surgeons (IAHRS), and is recommended by The American Hair Loss Association and has practiced medicine and surgery for over 20 years.

Dr. Hughes developed an interest in the artistic aspect of precise microsurgical procedures and began practicing hair restoration surgery on the east coast. It was his surgical precision and devotion to patient care that led his path to AlviArmani Beverly Hills.


Dr. Craig Barton has enjoyed pursuing numerous artistic passions. As a hair loss sufferer and AlviArmani hair restoration patient himself, Dr. Barton understands what patients are going through when it comes to hair loss.

His hair restoration experience led him to refocus his professional specialization so he could impact other patients experiencing hair loss. Prior to joining AlviArmani, Dr. Barton was a Sports Medicine physician and board-certified in Primary Care Sports Medicine.
