I had my hair transplant on 4/29/14. First off, let me start by saying that my experience with Dr. Dorin was the best. I previously had a transplant with Dr. Feller but did not yield enough grafts so I decided after much research to go with Dr. Dorin, it is a experience that I do not regret. The day started with me having breakfast at home and taking my anti biotic that they told me to take. After this I took a cab to the office as I was running just a little late but nonetheless wanted to be punctual. When I arrived I filled out some paperwork that took about 10 minutes. I was then called in by Peter who took preop pics and was the person that i originally consulted with. He was helpful in scheduling me in with only two weeks notice which was great. After my pictures were taken I was directed to a room where Dr. Dorin greeted me and drew my hairline, I respect his professionalism as he took his time and examined the proposed hairline in different angles. After we agreed on my hairline he explained to me that he will help close up my scar from my first transplant which was not healed good and was rather large and not easily hidden. After this I had my scalp numbed up by a funny yet professional nurse named Rita, she made me feel more comfortable and less nervous as I hate injections. Thanks Rita
After I was numbed up Dr. Dorin began to cut up my scalp which was about a 15 minute process, I did not feel a pinch which was good. He then sewed up my scalp which I must say is so thin, amazing work. The next step was the "poking" or creating the recipient site not sure exactly what the proper terminology is but you understand, this took about 20-30 minutes, again I did not feel a thing. After this was done Dr.Dorin gave me lunch which I ate rather quickly, the excitement was too great. I watched ESPN and fell asleep for a few moments as the technicians inserted my grafts. In about two hours I was all done which was perfect as I wanted to be home by 3:30 (there was a UEFA Champions League Game going on). I was shown a post op DVD on how I should care for my grafts. I bought the Atp Spray from Dr. Dorin as it is proven to heal the grafts faster, for $100.00 dollars you can't go wrong. This is the best experience I have had, I was scheduled to come in the next day and get my grafts and donor site cleaned which I thought was great as I didn't get this treatment when I got my first hair transplant. The staff genuinely showed care for me which is what convinced me that this office is the best in NY. I have no regrets only that I didn't schedule sooner as it is almost summer and would of loved to have my hair haha. Attached are the pics from Tuesdays pre and post op included.
Please leave some feedback I would love to get advice and constructive comments.
