OK, I feel obligated to leave a review for Elite Vein & Hair Restoration, not necessarily for the business but for the guys like me who are shopping around for the proven best results, and if possible most affordable for the type of procedure we need. I have had three total procedures done in my lifetime, one 20 years ago, with Bosley(strip method, 800 grafts), one almost a year ago, again, with Bosley(2nd strip method, 800 grafts) and this one recently from Elite Vein and Hair(FUE 1200 grafts). I decided to go with the FUE(NeoGraft) this time because I didn't want to keep getting strips of my scalp cut out and have that scar get even longer across the back of my head. Once I decided to do the FUE I found about 4 reputable places, with enough online presence, that did it around the Detroit area. I called one and never heard back from them, Bosley was around $4200 for the 800 graft strip method and A LOT more for the FUE, nearly the same for MHR(Michigan Hair Restoration). I decided to take a chance with the (way)lesser known Elite Vein and Hair after looking at the before and after photos on their Facebook page AND after my consultation. The clincher was when the rep(her name was Nada) told me that they would do the 1200 grafts, NeoGraft FUE for LESS than I had gotten the STRIP method done with Bosley with only 800 grafts! What! I realized they weren't one of the "top dogs" out there so I "felt" like I was kind of taking a risk, I mean, "Elite Vein"! I am here to share with you that this place was just as professional, clean, friendly staffed and even had something that Bosley didn't, the ARTAS robotic FUE.
I'd really like to outline every detail that happened for you guys but I don't have that kind of time BUT I will give you some noteworthy highlights. They were VERY patient, I never felt rushed. They redrew the hairline a few times before the procedure until I was happy AND they followed that hairline perfectly. Even though I had considerably more hair loss on one side the Bosley doctor quickly jabbed away with his scalpel 400 times on EACH side. The Elite doctor actually took the time to study my hair growth and made his jabs accordingly, lots more on one side than the other, big props! One of the two doctors who placed the grafts was so detailed and really took his time, I think he only took one few minutes break for the many hours I was there, he even ended up staying and putting some of the extra grafts he had into my scar from the previous procedures to help hide it, I mean, he could have not said anything and went home to his family and I would have been none the wiser... THAT'S integrity! One more thing, they gave me free PRP(Platelet Rich Plasma) injections, that they centrifuged from my own blood before the procedure and injected into my scalp to increase blood flow and help with hair growth, AND they sent me off with a healing and moisturizing spray made from the same plasma!
I will be uploading the before and after photos after the grafts start growing out in about 2 more months. They took photos before, immediately after and at 10 days and I will include those as well so you can really get an idea as to what this FUE looks like... I will close by saying that if you are on the fence do yourself a favor and schedule a consultation with Elite Vein and Hair, what do you have to lose besides more money if you select one of the more advertised and overpriced competitors? Oh yeah, one final note, the main doctor who performed the procedure had worked for Bosley for over 9 years I think he said and also for MHR, so that was funny...
The experience I had at elite was outstanding I came in for PRP and Dr. Hakim & Linda made me feel so comfortable. The PRP did not hurt, and the results are spectacular. Linda explained everything from start to finish & they checked up on me after my procedure. I would recommend Dr. Hakim and his staff to everyone!
