Dr. Rae Lynne Kinler

Expert Hair Transplant Surgeon and Artist

Rae Lynne Kinler, M.D. became a member of the Ziering team after a fellowship in Hair Restoration Surgery under Dr. Craig Ziering. The first physician in her family, combined with a love of art and technology, drew Dr. Kinler into the field of aesthetics and hair transplantation.

Born and raised in Louisiana, Dr. Kinler attended medical school at American University of the Caribbean in Saint Maarten, N.A., followed by a General Surgery Residency at Waterbury Hospital in Waterbury, Connecticut, and a Trauma Fellowship at Hartford Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut. She went on to complete an Aesthetic Medicine Fellowship at Dolce Vida Medical Spa in Shelton, Connecticut.

Dr. Kinler pursued the Hair Transplant Fellowship with Dr. Ziering, as she feels “in order to be the best, you have to be trained by the best.”  During her fellowship, she became extremely proficient in Microscopic Follicular Unit Transplantation (MFUT) and particularly skilled at Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) procedures, including manual FUE and ARTAS Robotic (FUE) procedures, participating in research and development with Restoration Robotics, and has been invited to lecture for the company.
