After having my first hair transplant at another very reputable doctor in my area. I decided to to speak to Dr. Arocha, which himself is also very esteemed in the practice. Dr Arocha exceeded my expectations with the level of expertise and the cost compared to the previous doctor. My second hair transplant was a much higher graft count that really made a huge difference this go round. He also understand that hairlines are not perfectly straight naturally as thus does not implant them perfectly straight for a more natural look. I am currently at 8 months post-op and have had incredible results which I think even surprised the doctor.Staff is great and always there to answer any and all concerns. I also enjoy the fact of the frequent post-op visits to gauge results and ask more questions. If I decide to have any more work done it will definitely be with Dr. Arocha.
I would recommend Dr. Arocha to anyone that is considering to have a hair transplant done.Consultations are free unlike my previous doctor. There is so many pluses compared to my fist transplant that I cant mention them all but, I really enjoy the privacy of his office not in a medical center and the fact that I did not have to wear a huge bandage over my head as with the previous procedure.
Thank you Dr. Arocha and staff!!
Extremely disappointed with how things have turned out. I would not recommend this clinic nor a hair transplant. I gave the this clinic the opportunity to do great work. Instead I end up with an infections that left me with a hole in my head and limited results. I regret ever embarking on this journey of HT. It is a hoaks!!! It will leave you with a bad scar and $12K poorer. DO NOT GET A HAIR TRANSPLANT AND DO NOT GO WITH THIS DOCTOR.
Great Experience of my 2nd Hair Transplant with Dr. Arocha – Hello everyone,
I am in my late twenties and have suffered from extreme hair loss! I used to be very depressed about this until I met Dr. Bernardino Arocha about 3 years back. In the last 3 years, I have had 3 transplant procedures with him to counter my terrible hair loss. And for all my 3 procedures, I have gone to Dr. Arocha, despite the fact that every time I had to travel over 2000 miles across the US to reach his clinic in Houston, Texas. During each of these procedures, he has done a fantastic job, which is evident from the results. He has now brought smile to my face! This, I guess, speaks volumes about the ability of Dr. Arocha and his staff in the domain of hair transplant! If I have to describe Dr. Arocha in short, I would say that he is an ideal mix of “passion” and “compassion” – he has tremendous passion for the work he does and has a lot of compassion for his patients like us who are suffering from hair loss.
Going down the memory lane 3 years back, I can remember that it was not easy for me to find a “quality” surgeon for my transplant procedure. The usual questions kept haunting me – Who is the best in this kind of work? What about the cost? What about the pain in the surgery? What about the healing? And most importantly, what about the final results? I am a Research Engineer by profession and thus by habit, I started doing quite an extensive research on hair transplantation and the surgeons who perform these surgeries. From all the studies that I did, I finally came to the conclusion that Dr. Arocha stands much ahead of his fellow peers in the hair transplant industry!! Plus, from my own experience with him in the last 3 years, I can mention so many positive points about him, which will surely make one feel that he is the right doctor to have a hair transplant with. Here are the points –
(1) He is recommended by several surgical Hair Restoration Associations, who have really set a very high standard for this kind of practice.
(2) He does skype as well as face-to-face consultation, both free of cost! He and his staff are very friendly.
(3) Doc himself is very experienced and knowledgeable in hair transplantation and he has also completed a prestigious fellowship in hair transplantation to master the skills and intricacies involved in this kind of a surgery. On top of that, he has got a very knowledgeable, experienced and skillful staff. The surgery is definitely painless!
(4) Doc is an artist himself by hobby and what I know about this kind of cosmetic surgery is that, along with the technical skills, the doc needs to have a very good aesthetic sense, because after all, its all about looks, which I am sure Dr. Arocha has.
(5) Dr. Arocha and his staff concentrate on hair transplant and perform only ONE surgery a day, so the patient will be his sole attention on the day of your surgery.
(6) Most of the HT cases, which he deals with show early results. By God's grace, I am one of them!
Hence, those of you who are thinking of having a hair transplant and looking better and younger, I would say that Dr. B. Arocha is definitely “the right” doctor for you!
I’ll start by saying, I began to lose my hair at a relatively young age. By my Sr. yr in college I had friends poking fun at me because of my receding hairline. I knew it was all in good fun, but as time went on and I continued to lose more, it began to really bother me. When I turned 25 and came to the realization that I was just another few years away from being VERY bald in the front and mid section of my head, I decided to take action. I did my research and came across Dr. Arocha’s name in a number of online publications and reviews. He appeared to be regarded as one of the best in the business as I could not find one unfavorable review. I called his office and set up a consultation, free of charge. After 30-45 minutes of informative conversation, I was ready to sign up!
5 years, 3 procedures and 6000 grafts later, I can’t tell you how happy I am with my decision to go in for that initial consultation. Of all the things we spend money on (that we don’t necessarily need to have) this ranks as the most worthwhile IMO. I truly believe confidence in the way you look is good for your health and prevents unnecessary stress. The fact is, a full head of hair slows the appearance of your aging, makes you feel better about yourself, and is more appealing to others (although my amazing wife would never admit that she cares how much hair I have). Furthermore, the unfortunate truth is that a first impression someone makes of you can very well be influenced by your appearance. The last thing I wanted, was to lose business or not get a job because I was not appealing enough to someone elses eyes.
The procedure itself is a walk in the park. I’m not going to compare it to getting a Swedish massage, but it is certainly nothing at all to be afraid of. Dr. Arocha’s team is very caring and professional, nothing at all is rushed, and very minimal discomfort (if you want to call it that) occurs during the procedure; just a pinch here and there when they numb your donor area and recipient site. Seriously, nothing to be worried about!! I could talk to the staff during the procedure, and at times I would doze off for a little bit. If you need to get up to go to the bathroom, you can do so at anytime. Dr. Arocha lets you chose the lunch order for the day as well!
The first night of recovery is probably the most difficult part of the process, but it really is not that bad. Yesterday I had a procedure with approximately 1800 grafts and got a good 7 hours of sleep, only waking a couple of brief times to adjust my pillow. When I awoke this morning, there was only slight discomfort from the pressure being applied to my donor site, but not even enough to make me take pain medication today. Additionally, as long as you sleep elevated at 45 degrees, there is no visible swelling to your face.
Overall, I not only highly recommend a hair transplant if you are debating it, but I highly recommend Dr. Arocha and his team. They are a top notch operation, are always available for questions if you have them, and do their best to make your experience as smooth and comfortable as possible. You will not regret an investment in Dr. Arocha, as the results he delivers are well worth it!
It's time. If you are at a point in your life where you've said that to yourself, chances are you're not here just browsing, you're doing research. The good news is, and this is firsthand knowledge, you can stop looking. Dr. Arocha and his team are simply the best at what they do.
Schedule a time to meet him. You'll have all your questions answered. No obilgation to do anything you don't want to do. They know it's an extremely personal issue and treat as such, giving you the information needed to make your decision. It's going to end up being one of the best choices you can make.
Please don't go somewhere else and just "hope for the best." You owe it to yourself to GET the best, and that's Dr. Arocha.
I went to Dr. Arocha in the Spring of 2011 looking for advice and expertise in addressing the growing bald spot on my crown. Dr. Arocha's professionalism and the great team of people he has on staff made me feel very comfortable with a procedure that otherwise is very stressful to contemplate. Having heard so many horror stories, I was of course looking to have success in my procedure. The surgery was scheduled and I arrived and immediately felt relieved with the process, the people and Dr. Arocha's attentiveness. The surgery went as expected and as early as the first follow up visit, there was evident "prickly" hairs where there were none before! Each visit for a year continued to see more and more progress. To this day, nobody that I work with or even my family members can detect that I had this procedure! The scar is no minimal that I think only my barber can tell - but he hasn't let on. I cannot recommend Arocha Hair Restoration enough. Dr. Arocha is clearly a leader in a field where you need to be very careful who you select to perform surgery on you. Go for a consultation - you will be happy that you did. Thanks to Dr. Arocha and all of his staff for your service to me! DPS
Making magic happen! – Dr. Arocha is the best of the best. A true artist in every sense of the word and a classy guy. The entire staff becomes family within minutes of walking through his office. Everything about the experience was top notch and the results are terrific...I couldn't have asked for a better look. I look and feel better now than when I was 19.
Thank you Doc and staff!
Thank you thank you thank you Dr Arocha – Let me guess, you’re losing your hair and doing a little research on hair restoration. So you are reading the reviews to try and find just the right Doctor for you. Well guess what, you found him. From the first call to Dr. Arocha’s office it has been a wonderful experience. I’m 25 years old and started losing my hair around 22. I hated that I was so young losing hair. So over the years I was always researching on what I could do. Then I heard about hair restorations. I looked for more than a year on where to go. Then I found Dr. Arocha, and after reading all the great reviews I made a call. From the moment you step in the door, you feel like a part of the family. Even the building there is a piece of art. I mainly worked with Craig, but the entire staff is very nice. Dr. Arocha answered all of my questions, showed me photos of before and after’s, and is just extremely helpful. Dr. Arocha knows his stuff. So, we set a date for surgery. Again, they tell you everything you need to know so you’re not in the dark. Surgery was a piece of cake, and the lunch was great. After surgery they tell you how to treat your hair for the next week and show you how to wash it and so on. As of now, I am on my 6 month out of surgery and people keep telling me how my hair just looks fuller and thicker. People can’t believe it’s my own hair. It’s like there all amazed. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Arocha and his staff. I highly recommend Dr. Arocha for Hair restoration. Thank you sooo much team, and keep up the great work. Kevin
The Best Doctor in the Hair Restoration Arena! Thank you! – Let me begin by stating that this review is well deserved for Dr.Arocha and his staff, and I am one year out from the original date of my surgery, which was done in December 2010. I began to lose my hair at the age of 18 and soon after college I decided it was time to do something about it. I began researching the various hair restoration places around the Houston area and visited one of the major competitors in the hair restoration industry. I was about to make the move and have it done at one of the majors around September 2010, but luckily I went back home to do more research. I visited the various forums (hair restoration network, etc.) and began to read the reviews of the major player in the industry. I decided not to make the move and began a period of more research. Through the forums, I discovered Dr. Arocha’s clinic and read the great reviews posted on forums, Google, and CitySearch. To this day, I am extremely grateful I did that. I made the initial consultation in late September 2010, and I immediately knew that Dr. Arocha was the right person for the procedure. Dr. Arocha and his staff are highly knowledgeable and truly understand the patient’s needs. He sat down with me and provided me various options and explained the entire procedure as well. At first I was a little nervous, but after he gave me a great explanation, I knew I would have my procedure done there. I left the consultation and scheduled my procedure for December 2010.
On the day of the procedure, Dr. Arocha and his staff explained the pre/post-op procedures. I felt extremely comfortable in the hands of Dr.Arocha and his staff. They provided a lunch break during the surgery and 3500 grafts later, I was on my way to a new look and increased self-esteem. Dr. Arocha and his staff answered any questions I had after the procedure, and they provided great advice on what to do to ensure a faster recovery.
One year later I went to see the Dr. Arocha for my fourth follow-up since the procedure (1 every 3-4 months), and he showed me the pictures from my initial visit in September 2010. All I had to say was, WOW! The transformation has been amazing and the scar is hardly noticeable at all. Each time I went in, Dr. Arocha took pictures of the progress and it was a good way to see the results. I am extremely happy with the results and the progress my hair has made since the surgery. As mentioned before, this is an extremely well deserved review for Dr. Arocha (later is better than never) and his staff. If you are considering this type of procedure and looking for amazing results, care, and want to feel like a person versus a number, I recommend you visit Dr.Arocha. I will certainly use him for any future procedures I decide to do. – Happy with Great Hair in 2012
Thank you, Thank you!!!!! – How do you choose the best Doctor for Hair Restoration? Do you search by price? Location? Experience? Patient Reviews? Well, we are very picky about the physicians we see so we searched by all of the above and that is how we found Dr. Arocha! 2 years ago, I would see my husband spending a little more time in the mirror styling his hair, finally he spoke up. He wanted me to do research on Hair Restoration because he felt as he could use a little extra up top. I contacted the office and since we are out of state we hoped they would be able to get us in for the consult and procedure close together
