Do you know anything about this place, looking to get a hair transplant.

Hi!

I am a female...suffering from hair loss for 18 years. I thought I wouldn't be able to afford anything but a cheapy wig.

I was taken to Hans Wiemann, against protest, but have to say, I love the place. They were very professional and told me of all of the alternatives they have to offer.

Although hair transplantation was my desire, it was not an option for me because it is not known how much more hair I will continue to lose. I opted for a 2 hair piece system.

I went on Friday for the works! I knew that just clipping the hair to my other hair would not be something I would like. If I was unable to get it to look just right, I knew I wouldn't bother with it. So...I went for broke...

They shaved the top of my scalp, cut the piece to fit, used a special adhesive to apply it, and then cut and styled it for me. It looks so good! I love it and the people there.

I will go every 4 weeks (or so) to have it removed, cleaned, and stored. At that time, I will have my scalp re-shaved, exfolliated, and the other piece will be applied. Each time I go, they will swap out the other piece.

I know that I will have to eventually add to the pieces and replace them as necessary, but that is something I am willing to do. I cannot believe how natural it looks and how much better I feel.

It truly was not just a vanity issue for me. I have another 30 years in the work force and I cannot tell you how many times I've been asked if I have cancer or are taking high blood pressure medication. I hate it when I can tell that the person I am speaking with is looking at my scalp and not at "me". It's embarrassing and humiliating.

So...my opinion? Go! I don't think you will be unhappy at all. Good luck!!!!

The office staff were very nice! Very courteous! Very personable!

My consultant"is Lisa. She has worked there for 11 years...after having become a client of their's first.

My stylist is Sharonda. She has worked there for 9 years. She listened to what I was looking for and how I wanted my hair to look.

My session was fun. My sister took all kinds of pictures. We laughed...cracked jokes...and even shed a few tears when all was said and done and I looked and felt wonderful!

Lisa told me, at my first consultation, that my only regret would be that I hadn't come sooner. I thought it was just a "sale's pitch"...but it has become my truth!

Is Stacy one of the ladies in the reception area? If so, I didn't catch all of their names. But for future knowledge, may I ask what happened with her? Just in case...you know how that goes! lol

Is she the one you deal with all of the time? Maybe ask for someone else? For the expense, no one should have to tolerate that type of behavior. Did you mention it to anyone? If so, was anything done to make ammends?

I'm sorry to hear that you won't go back because of her rudeness. Will you be going elsewhere? I hadn't really shopped-around. Once I found the courage to go (again, under protest), I just stayed there. Of course, I'm still a new "client"...so the next few months will be the real test, I guess.

Ham it is probably an improvement.

The results from the "nightmare" guy are not typical for any transplant. This is the cause of the patient not following post-op instructions and ultimately is the personal hygiene habits of this particular person. I loved my transplant.

Here's the deal. The guy talking about his "nightmare" is absolutely right. "Been There" CLEARLY works for Hans Weimman, along with "Perfect transplant". I have actually been there and yes they are nice but I wouldn't shell out the money. For your money, you're better off going to a specialist on the east coast where I'm from. Also (since you're employees are clearly on this) do a better job with the photos you post online. Some are so obviously doctored!! And poorly doctored!!
