2000 grafts, 21 years old - Newport Beach, CA

Dr. Meshkin is extremely professional as well as skilled at what he does. I'm 21 years old and received 2000 grafts at one of the best prices. The post-op graft density matched the surrounding hair very well and there was little downtime. It's been about a month since my surgery (the scabs fell off at day 10), so I'm still waiting on results, but everything else was absolutely amazing. If I...

FUT (3000 grafts) with Dr. Meshkin - San Diego, CA

I am in my late twenties and started experiencing hair loss during my early twenties. At 23 I had a FUE procedure with a well known clinic and with a Doctor whom I do not recall the name. It was a small FUE (about 1000 grafts) and I was fairly happy with the results. It looked pretty natural and gave me my hair back (most of the grafts were concentrated in the front and temple areas). Since...
