5 out of 5 stars FUE Hair Transplant

30 Years Old, Mild Thinning and Hair Loss - FUE Procedure

I starting really noticing how much I was thinning when I graduated college. So I got a consultation at 24 and they only offered the FUT process at that time. I wear my hair fairly close cropped so I didn't want a scar, that's at least what I kept telling myself. I got fed up when I hit 30 and decided to get another consultation done. They went over the FUE procedure that had just come to AZ a...

Bosley Hair Restoration Scottsdale AZ

Recovery time after the procedure was minimal and the...

Second time around was even better than the first.

Dr. Hekimiam is personable, knowledgeable and humorous. Seldom have I had a doctor take the time to really communicate with me. He answered all my questions without me choosing to feel ignorant for not knowing the answers. One heck of a good doctor.
