History of Alvi Armani
As mentioned before, Alvi Armani clinic was established by the Doctor of Italian descent Dr. Antonio Alvi Armani in 1999 in Toronto, Canada. The clinic you see in India, Mideast and Argentina is a part of same chain. Alvi Armani started with FIT (Follicular Isolation Technique) procedure but ever since the procedure became outdated, Dr. Armani quickly realized it and switched to the better surgical procedure, FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction).

Not only did Dr. Alvi Armani make the wise decision of switching to FUE, he also excelled in it doing extensive research in the same field, coming up with better techniques and eventually coining Vitruvian Design Method for FUE. Some of Alvi Armani’s services have been individually reviewed in brief below.

FIT or FUSS Procedure
This service was instrumental in making Dr. Armani and his associates popular. Ironically, this service is not very common today due to the newer FUE procedure. The procedure involved Dr. Armani taking out a hair strip from, and scalp transplanting it, over the balding area – known as recipient site.

FUE Procedure
When FIT became obsolete, Alvi Armani started focusing on FUE, which used individual follicles rather than a strip. This procedure took Alvi Armani to new heights, even after Dr. Armani’s retirement, as it is safer and more effective. It was only after the success of FUE that Alvi Armani started eyeing other potential markets including India, Middle East and South America.

The popularity of Dr. Armani as a surgeon was far-reaching and it wasn’t long before celebrities from Hollywood turned towards Alvi Armani, Beverly Hills.

Fame of Alvi Armani
Impressed by the results of Hollywood celebrities, Bollywood actors turned their attention towards Alvi Armani as well. The fame, coupled with Dr. Armani’s physical condition which forced him to resign, also opened a door of opportunity for Alvi Armani to open up clinics in major parts of the world, including India and Argentina. Alvi Armani Beverly Hills is still the leading Alvi Armani clinic, which is under supervision of Dr. Baubac Hayatdavoudi, an award winning surgeon from University of California. Visit Dr. Baubac Hayatdavoudi’s blog to learn more about him.

Alvi Armani India
Alvi Armani India run by Dr. Arihant Surana is also a part of Alvi Armani Network and is a recent addition to Alvi Armani clinics. This clinic came into existence because of various reasons:

Firstly, hair restoration was considered costly and only wealthy Indians, including celebrities, were able to bear the cost of FUE in United States and Canada. Secondly, Dr. Arihant Surana’s feelings for Indians and the fact that he is also an Alvi Armani trained professional provided the perfect foundation to open up a clinic in India. Finally, Medical tourism is getting popular across the globe. People are looking for inexpensive countries with advanced medical facilities and qualified faculty and India is right there at the top of the list. Visit Dr. Arihant Surana’s website to learn more about him.

Alvi Armani Argentina
Led by Dr. Juan Manuel Rodriguez Jáuregui, Alvi Armani Argentina has been leading the Argentina market with Dr. Armani’s exclusive FUE procedure. Dr. Jáuregui specializes in Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic surgery from the University of Buenos Aires.

His passion for hair care, past record of successful patients and training from Dr. Armani make him the best candidate to represent AlviArmani in Argentina.

Alvi Armani Today
Today, Alvi Armani is known around every corner of the world. Many Hollywood and other celebrities, including star Indian batsman Virender Sehwag, have added to the success story of Alvi Armani.

Indian and Argentinean celebrities seeking hair transplantation can get operated without traveling to the United States. The best thing to happen for India and Argentina with Alvi Armani is that any celebrity or regular person suffering from hair loss can easily afford a quality hair transplant.

I had two hair transplants with Dr Alvi Armani. The results were so bad that I filed a complaint against him with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, the medical authority that regulates doctors in Ontario. I filed my complaint in 2009. They investigated him for 3 years. In January 10 2012, the College made him sign an agreement in which he agreed to resign his Ontario medical license, and never re-apply for a new one. Because Canada and the United States share medical disciplinary information, this disciplinary action was then sent to the Federation of State Medical Boards in the United States. Subsequently, Alvi Armani’s California medical license was canceled on January 1, 2013.
As a result, Dr Alvi Armani does not have a license to practice medicine in any state or country anymore. It appears he is allowing other doctors to use his name to try to continue his brand in other countries. The strange thing is, his real name is not Alvi Armani. After he came to Canada, he changed his name from Antonio Alvi to Antonio Alvi Armani in 2003, adding the “Armani” at the end. His real place of birth is not Italy, but Pakistan. I know this because name change certificates in Canada are open public records, which I requested and received. My experience with Alvi Armani was so bad that I made a website about it to tell others my experience. You can see all of this information on my website to verify that it is true: the full College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario investigation, his canceled medical licenses, and his name change certificate.
