1 year after my hair transplant and my entire life has been changed. At the time I realized I was losing my hair, I was only 20, and wasn't sure what to do. I met with Dr. Boden and, a little over two years later, I have never felt better about myself; a lot of that credit goes to my hair. Dr. Boden completely changed my life and I will forever be grateful of this.
I was left with significant scarring and baldness after a 'flap' procedure to close a large open area on my scalp following Mohs surgery. As a female with long hair it was very distressing to have my hair now part along the length of the scarred area. When I saw the physician who closed the open area of my scalp at the one year mark, he highly recommended Dr Boden as a solution to my unhappiness over the dramatic hair loss. Dr Boden took time with me, listening to my concerns, and did not give me hype about the results. He was very honest and explained that scar tissue does not easily support transplanted hair follicles because of the reduced blood supply, but he would cross-hatch the hair to cover the scar as best as possible. It is now over a year since the procedure, and it is true that the hair that has grown around the scar is not as dense as the rest of my scalp... but neither is it really noticeable. I can wear my hair down again without having to pin hair over the area to conceal it. I am content with the result and would like to add that Dr Boden is sensitive to his patients and was very kind during the actual procedure... taking time to make sure that I was comfortable. I highly recommend him to anyone struggling with hair loss.
1 year post-hair transplant:
My criteria for choosing Dr. Boden were 1)Top in ability with proven experience 2)Trustworthy, high reputation for patient satisfaction 3)Specializes in hair transplant. I'm pleased to report he exceeded all my expectations.
I traveled from NC to Connecticut for the procedure. To me, the travel was not a factor. The final results are what mattered. We did the initial consultation over video which was totally adequate to assess my needs. The procedure went very smoothly. Dr. Boden's staff are nice, friendly and competent. I felt very at ease. He followed up to check on me after I returned home. The sutures were easily removed at an urgent care center at nominal cost. 1 year later, my hair is full, healthy and natural looking. I couldn't be happier with the results.
Don't fall for the flashy, hype providers. They will do only half the job so they can get you to come back again. This was my prior experience at Dr. Z in California. It was barely 2 years later and they're repeatedly calling me to do another procedure. They actually threw away a portion of my donor hair instead of using it! You can trust Dr. Boden and his staff to do the best possible for you.
Just wanted to thank you Dr. Boden and his team for helping me throughout the transplant and after. It's been 15 months after my transplant and I'm very happy with the results.
I spent many months looking for the right surgeon and I couldn't be happier to have had Dr. Boden and his team perform the procedure.
After many years struggling with hair loss, I know I made the right choice. So much emotional pain that was almost completely eliminated through the hands of the professional, caring and honest Dr. Boden. - God bless!
For 5 years I had an auto immune problem that did a lot of damage to my hair. With Dr. Boden’s help I was able to have my hair recover from the damages and look better than it has in 5 years. Dr. Boden is a great man and it is truly a blessing to have his help.
Dr. Boden was nothing but a pleasure to work with and went above and beyond on my procedure before, during and after. My results are fantastic and my only regret is not having the procedure don’t sooner. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone considering restoration treatment.
I did 6 months of research prior to choosing Dr. Boden. My choice of Dr. Boden is a decision I couldn't be happier with. Dr. Boden makes you feel comfortable and listens to all your concerns and expectations prior to making his recommendations and performing the surgery. He not only corrected a previous procedure I had done some 30 years ago but transplanted some 2500 hair follicles to the front and back of my head. The procedure was painless and recovery time was short and simple. Now I have the appearance of a full head of naturally growing hair. There is no way anyone can distinguish between the transplanted hair and that which hasn't been transplanted. The result is completely natural and I couldn't be happier. I don't have enough good things to say about Dr Boden and his staff.
I did a plethora of research and a significant amount of due diligence before deciding on a hair transplant surgeon. After months of reading reviews on sites like Realself, and asking around for personal opinions, I decided on Dr. Boden because of his spotless reviews and industry-leading credentials.
However, I was 100% sold after my consultation with him. Even though he is busy, he never once made me feel rushed and was willing to politely and patiently answer all of my questions and concerns. Quite frankly, his honesty in telling me that I didn't really need the transplant at my age and Norwood stage made me realize that he is a doctor with my best interests in mind.
The actual procedure itself (2500 grafts, based upon my choosing and his agreement) was a breeze with minimal discomfort, and his staff who helped with the follicle implants were professional and skilled. Overall the procedure took about 6 hours or so.
Recovery was very easy and apart from some minor pain at the surgical site and some scalp itching after a few days, I hardly even noticed I went through a procedure. Aftercare and follow-up with Dr. Boden was also a good experience.
I couldn't be happier with my results and I would recommend Dr. Boden to anyone looking for a hair transplant, or for hair regrowth solutions! In fact, I have already recommended one person who has gone through the procedure with Dr. Boden, and he also had excellent results.
Dr. Boden is an exceptional Doctor. He's an expert on hair restoration, and his staff is exceptional. Everyone in Dr. Boden's office is kind and courteous and on the procedure day, you are their only concern and only patient. I am very pleased with the results of my hair procedure and would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Boden.
Dr. Boden and Team,
I want to express how happy I am with the decision to have my hair transplant with you. It has been a little over 2 years since my procedure and it has made such a difference in my confidence, my appearance and my overall happiness. Here are a few things that I want to share with you and your team.
Like many, on my first visit I struggled with emotions of vanity and some nervousness of what the results may look like. After a great visit with Dr Boden, I left feeling that it IS okay for me to want to restore my appearance and I had a true understanding of expectations, without pressure. I interviewed with several centers before meeting with your team and not one of them took so much time helping with the emotions of my decision.
On the day of my procedure your team made everything feel more like a spa day than a procedure. Everyone was so very professional and comforting. I was completely comfortable and relaxed from beginning to end, both physically and emotionally. The procedure was flawless and the results were exciting even right after.
You and your team have such an expertise in what you do, in all aspects. It’s now been 2 years, my hair looks great and is so natural. I love that it’s mine and there to stay.
If there have any clients thinking of having this done and they would like to talk with someone experienced, by all means I would be happy to talk them through my own.
Thank you all of everything!
