He is an expert in FUE + DHI techniques, accumulating hundreds of hair transplants with great success and satisfaction of his patients. He began performing the surgeries in different clinics until 2020 when he opened his own clinic in Madrid, Instituto Médico del Prado.
About his career, as we said, he graduated from Universidad Juárez Autónoma de Tabasco. Then, he came to Spain, where he specialized in Family and Community Medicine by the Ministry of Health of the Principality of Asturias.
After becoming interested in aesthetic medicine, he studied and completed different masters degrees such as Medicine and Hair Transplant by the University of Alcalá and Mississippi Institution, and Master in Aesthetic Medicine by the same university.
In addition, to complete his studies, he completed a master's degree in Clinical Dermatology at the University CEU San Pablo.
Since 2023, Dr. Espinosa Custodio has also opened the possibility of carrying out hair transplant surgeries in Mexico City. The doctor travels there twice a year with his team to perform surgeries.
It can be said that Dr. Espinosa Custodio is one of the most recognized young hair surgeons in the world. The doctor performs the entire surgery, both extraction and implantation, in addition to being the one who makes the diagnosis and assessment consultation. He also guarantees the results in writing and includes postoperative follow-ups until discharge.
He has a strict protocol to offer the highest quality standards. All his assistants in the operating room have studies related to medicine and nursing, in addition to having been personally trained by the Doctor. He performs sessions of around 1,200 follicular units per day, thus ensuring that all the grafts survive and are placed correctly, carefully choosing the direction, depth and position of each one of them.
Moreover, thanks to this method, the possibility of human error is considerably reduced, as fatigue does not take its toll on the team.
In addition to being recognized by the IAHRS, Dr. Espinosa Custodio is a member of the founding faculty of the Global Hair Loss Summit (2020) and belongs to other organizations such as the European Organization of Hair Restoration (FUE EUROPE), the Spanish Society of Aesthetic Medicine (SEME), the Spanish Society of Hair Restoration (SERECAP) and the Spanish Society of Regenerative Medicine and Cell Therapy (SEMERETEC).

The IAHRS is an organization whose membership is limited exclusively to state-of-the-art hair restoration surgeons. The IAHRS is the patient’s advocate, the ethical physician’s voice, and the standard for the profession.
