I Am Totally Blown Away by What I See in the Mirror!!! Amazed at the Difference - New Orleans, LA

Dr. Woessner is absolutely the greatest. From the time I walked into his office any apprehension just disappeared. He is the top in his field. He was on the mark in everything he explained to me about the procedure, what to expect after the procedure was complete and in the days and weeks to follow. i am so blown away by his skill and knowledge. I thought there was no hope for me and he told me not to worry. I can't believe my eyes when I look in the mirror. I brag about his skills to anyone that asks. My heartfelt thanks to you, Dr. Woessner.

Both Dr. Woessner and his Chief Surgical Technician Thomas Ortiz worked as a team during my second surgery. They were both extremely precise and kept me comfortable the whole time.

5 out of 5 stars FUE Hair Transplant

Fue Hairline - New Orleans, LA

Everything about the procedure went according to plan and then some. Dr. Woessner was the artist constructing the hair line you most desired and made sure each graft was inserted in correctly (direction etc). On top of that his technician Thomas did a wonderful job constructing the procedure, he explained to me what part of the procedure he was on and the dynamics of what was doing. On top of all of this they explained to me the difference between neograft/artas and there methods. Neograft flies in different technicians weekly for procedures so your playing Russian-roulette with your transplant. For Artas, the hole for the extraction punch is much larger than the .9 mm they say it is, .9mm is the inner diameter not the outside. I would highly recommend this team to anyone contemplating the procedure.
