5 out of 5 stars Hair Transplant

36 Yr. Old with Rapidly Receding Hairline - Alpharetta, GA

Almost a year after my procedure, I couldn't be happier with the results with my hair/hairline. From the moment I met Dr. Ballon at the initial consultation I knew I was in very good hands. One of the deciding factors for me in selecting Dr. Ballon was his past experience as a neuro surgeon. Not all hair transplant doctors are nearly as qualified. This is why I flew all the way from...

My Hair Was Thinning. Alpharetta, GA

Dr. Ballon came highly recommended and did not disappoint. Dr Bell and came highly recommended and did not disappoint. He was very informative in laying out my options with regards to hair growth. It was professional every step of the way, even following up with me via personal texts and phone calls.

Hair Restoration on a 55 Yr Old Male - Alpharetta, GA

Dr. Ballon was very involved in all aspects of the evaluation, preparation and procedure. He spent a significant amount of time explaining both the medical and aesthetic outcomes. He and his staff performed the hair restoration procedure as a "well oiled machine" with significant attention to my comfort and well being. I have had no side effects and the recovery proceeded quickly and uneventful. I would strongly recommend anyone considering hair restoration to seek Dr Ballon out for a consultation.

I'm midway there, going great!

Dr. Ballon and his staff are awesome! They are professional, not pushy, and make you feel very comfortable throughout the process. I'm almost 6 months post transplant and I am seeing progress. I'm excited to see the end result!

He Changed my life!!

I never looked in the mirror and when I left the house I always wore a hat. I did a lot of research and chose Dr. Ballon based on reviews and pictures. I drove 2 hours to see him and he honestly changed my life. Most people think loosing hair is no big...
