Best Hair Doctor

I would recommend Dr. Boden without reservations to anyone considering a hair transplant. From the initial consultation, Dr. Boden was upfront and reliable on what to expect from the transplant. He listened to my concerns and was able to come by with a great solution for my hair loss situation. I recently had my 1 year follow up for my FUT transplant and all I can say is that my hair ended up coming out as well as expected! I can genuinely say that I'm thankful I had Dr. Boden do the transplant!

Amazing From Start to Finish

Dr. Boden and his team are some of the most knowledgeable, honest, and compassionate professionals I have interacted with. The consultation was in-depth, informative, and in no way trying to coerce me into any specific treatment for my hair loss. I ended up wanting a hair transplant, and Dr. Boden recommended the FUT procedure. Dr. Boden and his staff were readily available if I had questions, and they were proactive with communicating during the time between my consultation and procedure.

On the day of the procedure, everything was focused on making me as comfortable as possible. Dr. Boden and his team were attentive and frequently checked in to ensure I was not in any pain or discomfort. In all honesty, the procedure was relaxing and as pleasant as a procedure like a hair transplant could possibly be.

An anecdotal example of Dr. Boden caring about my comfort is when he noticed discomfort in my eye. He had me take a break and he examined my eye, finding something stuck in it. He made sure to give me contact information for optometrists near my hometown and later called me personally to check on how my eye appointment went.

The post operation procedure was clearly communicated, and I was given all materials needed follow the post-op care plan. Surprisingly, the pain level was completely manageable and as long as I took the ibuprofen, my post operation pain was minimal. Dr. Boden called to check in on me the day after the procedure to make sure there were no concerns on my end. Two weeks after the procedure, the stitching from where the follicles were removed were taken out, and Dr. Boden examined my scalp to ensure the healing process was going as planned.

Overall, this was one of the most pleasant medical procedures I have ever had. Dr. Boden is a class act, and his team, from the front desk, to surgical assistants, are top notch. I would not hesitate to go back to this practice if I ever wanted a procedure again.

Best doctor for hair transplant - gave me the natural look I wanted

Dr. Boden is simply the best out there for his aesthetic ability. No one else comes close (in my well researched opinion). I picked to work with Dr. Boden because I wanted a natural look. Too many surgeons I interviewed were too aggressive and I think many of them would have provided an unnatural look. The only thing worse than being bald is having a bad hair transplant and I see them all the time. Going too low on the forehead, even with celebrities, it looks ridiculous. You pay for what you get. I highly recommend Dr. Boden. -MM

My Wife Loves The Results!

I chose to have a hair transplant because, quite simply, I had become extremely self-conscious about being bald. I longed for the days when I had a full head of hair. Although I didn’t have illusions about looking 20 yrs. old again I did want to experience the feeling of having hair once more. I chose Dr Boden for the procedure after getting a wonderful recommendation from a gentleman who owns a salon and has had numerous customers (whom he recommended to Dr Boden) who have had this technique. He told me that “their new hair looked terrific, that it looked full and completely natural”. The experience was painless, totally professional and was explained in great detail. The staff was courteous and very helpful. They answered my numerous questions on every occasion. Dr. Boden is incredibly down-to-earth and possesses a wonderful “bedside manner”.
I am genuinely pleased with my results. To say that my expectations were met is an enormous understatement. I feel so much more confident and far less self-conscious than I previously did. The real benefit is that it looks so natural; no one can tell I’ve had this procedure. My wife loves the end result, as well. If you’re serious about getting a hair transplant do yourself a huge favor and contact Dr. Boden. You will not be disappointed.
Please understand that I am not a relative and I have not been paid. I’m just an extremely satisfied customer.
I have no doubt that you will be, too!

Awesome experience and results

I waited nine months to write this review - because if you ask Dr. Boden, and you should, it takes at least 12-18 months to see full results.
I think we can all agree that if nature had been a little kinder, none of us would want or need a hair transplant, but if you are going to get one I can't recommend Dr. Boden and his staff any higher and this is not a compensated review in any shape or form.
From the consultation to where I am now, it was just an effortless, easy, painless process that has given me more confidence and made me feel less self conscious. And in my opinion and my wife's and kids opinion it looks great and more importantly completely natural. Nobody can tell I had a hair transplant other then to say I look great. Dr. Boden is just flat out a nice guy. I think he does this because he really wants to help people feel better about themselves. There is no hard sales push (which I experienced at other places) and I feel he really wants to do what's right for the patient. There were a couple times where I was a little freaked out after the procedure and Dr. Boden and his staff were right there to answer all of my questions. I was assured that what I was going through was normal and to be patient. Well... I was patient and I love the results.
Bottom line.... this is the place to go if you want a highly skilled, professional, understanding doctor who is going to work with you to get the best most natural looking results you can. There you have it...........

I have a renewed confidence

I met with two physicians in CT known for their work and just hit it off with Dr. Boden. He understands the various reasons why someone would get this kind of procedure. I have thought about doing this for many years, have watched many videos about the procedure and it was my meeting with Dr. Boden that made me schedule and get it done. I am now one year post procedure and I am quite happy. I did not want to go crazy with the work to make it obvious and I did not need to relay that to Dr. Boden - he brought it up, he drew it out conservatively and we were consistently on the same page. The results - my wife posted pictures online of me holding my kids only 7 months post procedure and people responded that it appeared I was getting younger. I have a young look BUT for my hair before this procedure. The comments are without a doubt as a result of doing this procedure. I have a renewed confidence with the results - it was always on my mind prior to and I could not be happier that I was convinced to do it.

Thank you for making me look 30 when I’m actually 40!

4 years after the procedure, I am happier than ever with the results. My hairline looks the same as it did when I was 20, strong with zero signs of receding. I check in yearly with Dr. Boden and he is attentive, reviews the before procedure pictures against my current situation. Year to year after the transplant, my hair remains unchanged and as strong as ever. I’ve gotten several compliments about how amazing my hair looks, especially when I go to get a haircut and the barber can not believe that I am 40 with hair as thick and full as I have. Doctor Boden explained to me how he was carefully recreating my natural hairline so it looks natural, even under close examination. This has been the only elective surgery I have ever done and I do not regret it, I would easily do it again if I needed to. Dr. Boden and his office staff are amazing. Thank you for making me look 30 when I’m actually 40.

Attention to Detail and Tells you how it is

I was probably around 25 when I realized my hair was thinning and that I need to get in front of this situation. I got my hair transplant with Dr. Boden and now at 33 I couldn't be happier with my decision. From my initial appointment to my last checkin it has been nothing but a positive experience. In the initial appointment Dr. Boden sits you down and tells you the game plan for your specific situation and what the results will look like. Then when the time comes for the procedures Dr. Boden goes over everything and executes to perfection. If you follow all his tips and continue to do your part after the procedure, you will love the results.

Great doctor/artist

I highly recommend Dr. Boden. If you are thinking about getting a transplant and are searching everywhere for information like I did, you have found the right doctor in Dr. Boden. Great experience and great results. Knowing what I know after going through it I would have done it sooner. Would do it again without hesitation if needed. He is a top rated doctor and expert in the field. If you are on the fence about doing something you should make an appointment. After talking with him I knew he was the one. Wouldn’t change anything.

Great experience and very Happy I found Dr Boden

I’ve wanted to do something about my hair loss for years. I’ve tried finasteride, Rogaine, and other supplements but they only seem to slow the loss, not stop or reverse it. After researching hair transplant surgery, I found Dr. Boden and went for an initial consultation. The first thing I noticed was how thorough he was and the fact that I did not feel rushed at all. He took time to review, assess, answer all questions, and was very thorough. The entire experience was very easy right up through surgery. There was some discomfort the first few nights after surgery but it was mild and tolerable. A year and a half later, I’m very happy I went through with the surgery. I was on vaca recently and comparing the pics from this year to previous years, what a difference! The best part is the hair starts to grow subtly. I was not bald but had very thin spots. As those filled in, people kept telling me I look good, ask if I’m doing something different, working out, etc. You can’t have your teenage mop of hair back but being mid 40’s, I feel like I set the clock back 15 years on my hair.
