I'm a 44 Y/O Male, and naturally I'm losing my hair. I had read that hair restoration technology had leapt and bounded (Neograft) and Dr. Tim Sayed is not only an exceptional surgeon - he's an artist. For those reasons alone, I elected a Neograft procedure with Dr. Sayed and my experience has been tremendous. PREPARATION: - The entire front room staff engaged me patiently (pardon the pun) extensively for weeks leading up to the procedure. Although the procedure is under local anesthetic and you're back to business within a matter of days (I took work calls during my procedure, not kidding), like you'd expect I wanted to align my expectations accordingly. The service leading up to the procedure was stellar. FACILITY: - their La Jolla location (they are in Newport Beach too) is pristine. A beautiful plaza and the second you walk into their clinic, it felt more like I had arrived at a resort. The hospitality and sheer commitment to my comfort was palpable. Every single clinician followed COVID protocols for my sake (this procedure takes much of the day). - I became best friends with the entire staff who waited on me hand-and-foot all day. You even get a lunch break and let me tell you - one of the best sandwiches I've ever had! THE PROCEDURE: - you can watch countless YouTube clips on Neograft/Hair transplants (I recommend you book a consult with Dr. Tim Sayed) so I will tell you what I learned - it's all under local anesthetic so you're up the whole time and it might look invasive but you are just fine. They harvest the hair from what I call the Peter side of your head, and cultivate them like experts to feed the Paul side (in my case, I wanted to explore a more resolute hairline and fill in my waning temples). THE AESTHETIC: - a hair transplant involves so many factors, but the one element that requires someone at the top of their trade is the COSMETIC angle. What kind of hairline would look natural and non-contrived? Dr. Tim Sayed was involved in the entire process (from design to bidding me farewell) and I'm very pleased. POST OP: - You get plenty of meds (anti-bio, pain for swelling, saline spray to help with the itchiness) for your post op care. - Dr. Sayed's staff continue to check up on me and my welfare. PROGNOSIS: - Hair transplants take time to bear fruit (few months of growth and shedding), and research indicates that months 9-12 are where you see your bang for your follicles. HEARTFELT APPEAL TO ALL: - Life's too short. Get a touch up and trust Dr. Sayed with yours, like I did.
I had my implants removed with a lift on May 17th with Dr. Sayed and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Dr. Sayed was the first and only consult. I had another consult lined up but after meeting him I knew I wanted him to do the surgery, he spends a lot of time explaining the procedure and answering any questions you might have. He never seems like he is in a rush and spends a lot of time to ensure you feel comfortable! His staff and Dr. Sayed are always available as well. After surgery, if I had any questions , he would answer right away and would make me feel at ease. I would definitely recommend him, you won’t be disappointed
I was so impressed with the care I received from Dr. Sayed and his staff. I was 2 weeks off chemo and Dr Sayed worked closely with my oncologist to make sure I could safely undergo the surgery. The whole staff was beyond kind to me. I would highly recommend him.
I had breast implant removal and lift on May 12,2021. I was thrilled with my care from start to finish from both Dr Sayed and his staff. He worked closely with my oncologist to make sure I was physically up to undergoing the surgery which required multiple phone calls and coordinating blood test. I am also thrilled with the results of the surgery.
I am currently 6 weeks post op from a breast augmentation and could not be happier! I am a transgender women and Dr. Sayed and his employees made me feel welcome through every step of the process. I was always greeted by name when I walked in and truly felt like I was cared for. Dr. Sayed was extremely knowledgeable and helped me understand the sizing of the implants and the process making it very understanding. I would 100% recommend him to anyone else.
