Dr. Baubac Patient Review and experience



I, like many of you have spent the last 15 years fishing through the internet learning about hair transplantation from scalp reductions and flap procedures to FUSS and now onto FUE. I began to loose my hair at the age of 23 and I am now 44. My father is a NW6 and I knew I had to take action. Here are the points I was always looking for when trying to determine what the real options are and who the best doctor was for my procedure:

  1. I am not being paid nor was I asked by the Alvi Armani clinic or anyone else for that matter to leave this comment.

  2. I do not work for or with any hair restoration clinic in any capacity.

  3. My comments are honest and I simply want to help save someone 15 years of research. I want you to go to bed tonight knowing there are not only real options out there but also a doctor that truly is an artist and is being celebrated for it.

  4. I began taking Propecia 15 years ago. I have had zero side effects, absolutely no loss in sex drive (I have two kids and happily married) and no Gyno or negative side effects to speak of. I am holding well at roughly a NW2-3 with temporal recession but with a bit of gel and a brush along with a short haircut I didn’t look bad. (only other balding men could tell that I was balding…you know what I mean)

  5. I had an FUE procedure with Dr. Baubac 20 days ago. (2018 grafts - temporal and mid forelock) and I am at home reflecting on an amazing experience. I also had a PRP treatment the morning after my procedure.

  6. There is no gimmick at play here. Dr. Baubac did my procedure himself, we had a consultation wherein he offered his thoughts as well as listened to my intentions and we simply agreed on a new perfect hairline. He didn’t try to sell me any products, additional grafts…nothing at all. This doctor is a class act. His team are fantastic. They were equally as concerned with my comfort throughout the procedure as they were with the final result. They offered clear and concise post op procedures as well as supplying me with the needed lotions and vitamins to support the recovery process.

  7. So why Alvi Armani? I know there are many great doctors within the hair restoration field these days and new names popping up all the time. I remember when it was simply Bosley, perhaps Hasson and Wong…some of the first doctors to have an online presence. All very good doctors I am sure but let me tell you why I flew to Beverly Hills for my procedure with Dr. Baubac. The results! I have been following his videos, testimonials and simply his presence within the hair transplant community for 2 years (every night) and I truly believe he yields the best results. He is an artist and when all things are equal in terms of procedure and protocol within the field, the only thing that is left is the doctors artistic capacity. by this I mean where the grafts are placed, his angle closures, how he frames your face, where he creates density vs. less dense regions…these elements make ALL of the difference and I simply believe Dr. Baubac is the best.

As my procedure was only 20 days ago, I am now entering the shedding stage of my procedure and I have no results to show as of yet. My intention above is to explain why I decided to work with Dr. Baubac. Once my hair has come in I will certainly show pics of before and after to whomever may be interested if for nothing more than to prove I am a real patient. I am confident that the results will be fantastic, but again we won’t see that for 8-12 months as you are all aware.

My apologies for the novel here, I hope/trust this helps someone out there.


Good luck healing ! You can’t go wrong with Dr. B for temporal and hairline work.


Thanks stitchmeup!

Looking forward to posting some pics in a few months.



Thanks for sharing and congrats on finding yourself a good doctor. Look forward to seeing your before after photos.


Did you experience any swelling on your face? How many days did you take off from work for this?


I did swell for 2-3 days but there was no pain involved. By day 8 all scabs / swelling were gone, I looked and felt completely normal -see pic attached. I would say take a week off work if you can do it but at least in my case, 2 weeks off wasn’t needed at all.


@taterwood this is a pic 8 days after surgery with scabs disappeared ? Looking good. Can you post a before pic? I can’t tell where Dr. Baubac placed the grafts.



Thanks, I am shedding now but its somehow ok when you know you have a full head of hair on its way. Here is a pic from post op day 3 and the same from Post op day 8.


I rotated the photos so that they are easier to see


Much better thanks


Looked remarkable already after just 8 days. Did you fly into LA to have this done? Did you have to stay behind for 2-3 days until all the swelling is gone before you flew back home?


Hi Wes

Yes, I flew in to Los Angeles on a Tuesday, met the team at 6:30 AM on the Wed for the procedure, came in the next morning for bandage cleaning etc. and then flew home later that day to Miami. They gave me a small cap to wear on the flight - very easy.


Congrats, 15 years on Propecia with zero side effects, I wish I could say the same for myself. The pill gave me good results but I was also starting to develop gyno so I had to give it up about half a year ago.

Do you plan on using the pill even after your hair transplant?

The design near the temples looks great btw.


Hi Lucky

I do plan on continuing the Procpecia and my current campaign is to try to lose 30lbs now that my new hair is on it’s way. I will keep you posted on any negative side effects as I continue on Propecia. Thank for compliment on the design of the temples.


Did your doctor ask you stop using Propecia during the time when your wife was pregnant? I remember one of the warnings that come with Propecia is that pregnant woman should not be in contact with the medication or something like that.


No, my doctor was aware that I was on Propecia and no, there was no concern. There is a warning for pregnant women to avoid touching propecia pills that I am aware of. I am obviously not a doctor but I am now aware of any further concern as issued warnings in using Propecia and family planning.
