    Default My quote with Dr Armani

    Hi Everyone, I'm new to this site ,but been lurking for a while now.

    Based on hairlines , I chose a few doctors and have pretty much settled on the Armani clinic out of Beverly Hills, Ca.

    Primarily, my reason for choose Armani was the extremely detailed analysis that I received from Dr Baubac. He really impressed me during my call. He was able to answer every question and concern I had as well as advise me on what's best for my hairline. He also did this is a non-salesman tone. He could have snagged me for the slight thinning on top of my crown, but he advised against doing any work to my crown area. I only need work done to my temple area and he wants to rebuild the slight recession to the side of my hair as well. Anyway, now the cost of such procedure. I would like opinions on my pricing. I think I got a steal, but would like feedback from more experienced individuals on this board.

    Dr. Baubac said I would be one of his smaller cases.
    Pricing breakdown is for 2000-2500 follicular units which will give me a full hairline with temple closure and complete coverage in zone 2 for a full look.

    Type of Surgery is FUE

    Cost of Surgery is 24k, HOWEVER, If I sign up in July or August , the price drops to 15k plus they throw in some of their proprietary cell solution for 4 weeks which they claim cost 2700. This price includes all medications, follow up appointments and surgical room costs.

    What do you think ? 15k seems like a very fair price for FUE ....
    Thanks

    I wouldn't do anything for now.

    That is a common sales trick in this industry that they are using regarding the pricing.

    Read across all the forums and do even more research than you have currently. The clinic is notoriously known.

    Chris, can you just go ahead and give me the details of what you are referring to? I will do more research , but does this clinic not have a good reputation?

    please advise

    My second option was Rahal ,but they quoted me 13k for Strip and close to 25k for FUE.

    Guess it depends how big of an issue the $$$ is. I imagine there are financing options available. But Rahal has a great reputation, and is especially good, if not the best, at hairline work.

    They should be charging the same price per graft all year round and having a surgery before a certain date should make no difference. It is a common sales trick played by unethical clinics in this industry.

    I cannot possibly explain everything but I would advise not taking that offer up for now and researching intensely across all major forums, and then making a well rounded decision once you are fully informed.

    Hair transplants are permanent and for life. Everyone has a limited donor supply and you cannot afford to waste any of that precious donor supply.

    Well this is disappointing , but I prefer to hear the truth so I really do appreciate everyone's opinion so far. I hope to hear more so keep em coming.

    Sounds like I should go with Rahal , anybody else have an opinion or recommend a doctor?

    Thanks

    PS: hate to go offline because I want the feedback - be back later all.
