5 out of 5 stars Hair Transplant

Dr Varona is my HERO!

I recently underwent hair transplant surgery with Dr. Varona, and right now I am over the moon! Dr. Varona is a genius!!! The entire procedure took one day and was minimally invasive and uncomfortable. Dr. Varona was very gentle and reassuring. Two weeks later I feel great and my new hair is actually growing in! They said it would fall out at first and grow in later, but it did not fall...

I had an outstanding experience

My experience with Dr. Varona was absolutely extraordinary. The first thing I was impressed with is the actual opportunity to meet the Doctor during the consultation. I have had other experiences were you only meet the patient advocate. Dr. Varona is not only professional, he is also very kind and caring. He is a master at the artistry of hair placement and the configuration of what will look...

Truly AMAZING work done by an incredible doctor!

Dr. Varona does truly amazing work, but beyond that he goes above and beyond for his patients! My experience was a wonderful one and when I needed a touch up after, he went out of his way to help me out. I highly highly recommend him.

Five Star Experience with Dr Varona

Overall an amazing experience with Dr Varona! He is just so nice and gentle and really does a great job to make sure the overall aesthetic of the hair placements are ideal. I have had two previous hair transplants (first FUT and second FUE) and neither Dr's come close to the Dr Varona. I am so glad I decided to work with them. His entire staff is so warm, professional and fun to be around...

Great Experience with Dr. Varona's Team - Newport Beach, CA

My transplanted hair hasn't grown in yet, but I'm so happy with the work so far. The placement of the grafts looks great. With the numbing and the medicine, the pain has been pretty minimal. I did have some swelling and light bruising around my temples for the first few days, but that has gone away now. I just can't wait for my hair to grow in!

5 out of 5 stars FUE Hair Transplant

Life Changing Experience

Researched having a hairline and eyebrow transplant for over a year until I reluctantly made the appointment. I wasn't sure what to expect, but Dr. Varona and his team were hugely welcoming and knowledgeable. Fast forward to the day of surgery, I was very anxious and his team treated me like royalty and would not let me move a finger on my own. After 12 hours and staying past closing, Dr....

Professional, Expert and Friendly with REAL Results

I can't say enough about my experience with Dr. Varona. From start to finish he was terrific to work with. Starting with the consultation, where he answered every one of my questions and addressed all concerns with empathy and compassion. The day of the procedure (FUE, one follicle at a time) was exactly as he described it to be, so there were no surprises. His post-procedure regiment was very...
