37 Year Old Male - FUE 1950 Grafts


5 out of 5 stars Hair Transplant

Truly an amazing surgeon and an artist!

Dr. Gabel and his staff are amazing. Professional, personable, and extremely talented. I underwent FUT with 3166 grafts. The procedure went smoothly, and was completely painless. Dr. Gabel suggested FUT for a fuller transplant appearance, and I am extatic with the results. The scar is nearly invisible, and my regrowth has been spectacular. I am impressed with Dr. Gabel's skill as a...

5 out of 5 stars FUE Hair Transplant

World Class Surgeon and Team, amazing bedside manners, do not accept any less with an operation of this nature.

2 days post OP with Dr. Gabel for 1800 FUE grafts, and I am truly amazed by the quality of care he and his team has provided. I had a prior transplant with a doctor in the Seattle area with dissatisfactory results and my experience this week with Dr. Gabel blows that putz out of the water, now I see why Dr. Gabel is world class. For 1800 grafts FUE, Gabel and his team took their time...

Dr. Steven Gabel, Portland, OR Hair Restoration

Dr. Gabel has a confidence that puts you at ease. I had thoroughly researched and I didn't find a single negative review about him. He takes great pride in his work and performs the strip excision, the recipient sites, as well as works with his incredibly competent staff to actually place them. There aren't many doctors out there that are so "hands on". It gave me a lot of comfort that he was so invested. He also only performs one procedure per day, so you get his and his capable staffs undivided attention. I had approximately 2,600 grafts and it was a relatively painless process. The injections are really the worst part and they are simply a little prick. As I just had the procedure, obviously I don't know the full outcome, but I am pleased when I look at the top of my head and it just looks like I had a crew cut and beautifully spaced, dense and even. I can't wait to see the final result. I am 57 years old and wanted a natural look for my age with a bit of recession at the temple. Dr. Gabel was very supportive and was very straight-forward in his estimate of grafts and what could be achieved. I will try and post some pictures at a later date, but wanted to get the word out about this excellent Dr. and my great experience.

Best Experience - Hillsboro, OR

I am a physician and I have had hair loss for a couple decades. I did my research and finally got a FUT with Dr Steven Gabel in Oregon. He is a very respectful physician and a caring person. He is board certified and knows his work. He has done an incredible job with my surgery. I got a total of 2803 grafts for a Norwood IV baldness. His aseptic technique was state of the art and he was very meticulous about surgical technique. He gave me local anesthesia with SQ lidocaine and made the incision himself and extracted the donor site. I've not seen many transplant surgeons implant the grafts themselves. He is there implanting every graft himself along with his assistants watching them carefully and mindfully. From the moment I walked into his office, his staff have been phenomenal through out my journey through this process. Dr Gabel and his office personnel were very easy to reach, affable and professional. I've had world class care with no problems at all. They were the best of all the doctor's offices I have been to. He even came in on a memorial day weekend for me to remove my sutures at the 10 day time point. I have had great results and I am now 17 months since my implants and I have had a great result. I look younger than I ever did and am extremely satisfied with the results. This is an art, especially drawing the frontal line and he does an incredible job making it look as much natural as possible. With no reservations, I strongly recommend Dr Steven Gabel and his team to anyone looking to get a hair transplant in the Pacific Northwest. Being a physician, I know what to look for in your surgeon and every aspect of the surgery. He will exceed your expectations.

Cool Sculpting. Hillboro, OR

Dr Gabel is great. He did a fair and reasonable assessment as to whether I would see the results I expected and explained the procedure to me thoroughly. Schedule was easy - I was in within a week and the whole processes was exactly as he describe it. He has a wonderful demeanor - easy to talk to and ask questions of. He also doesn't promise anything that he can't deliver - in fact has talked a friend of mine out of a procedure because he didn't think he would get the desired results! That's real integrity...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Boxtox Expert. Hillsboro, OR

I really respect and appreciate Dr. Gabel. He has great skill as a physician and also a wonderful, caring and honest 'bedside manner'. He's easy to talk to, answers questions in a way that you can understand and never attempts to "sell" you on a procedure or product unless he feels it will help you in the manner that you request. He is highly ethical and has a very approachable and honest demeanor.

5 out of 5 stars Ultherapy

Ultherapy Works! Hillsboro, OR

Dr. Gabel is great! He's very careful to listen to what you want and is fair and objective about what can be accomplished and what to expect. He will not suggest anything that is not of value to the patient, and if he feels he can not help in a meaningful way he will say that and not put you through an unnecessary or costly procedure.

33 Was Going Bald, Got my Life Back. Portland, OR

Dr Gabel is hands down the best hair doctor there is.. He is involved in ever part of the process and after care. He knows what he is doing and you can tell just from talking to him within the first few minutes. Having your hair done is something you don't want to take a chance on with "just someone". Don't go anywere else, only Dr. Gabel. Dr Gabel's staff was amazing. They were beyond...
