Recently had my FUE restoration surgery done in November 2021. The procedure went well and visibly noticing strong results. The staff was amazing from the start from making sure I understood my options and ideal end state to post hair care. During surgery, things went smoothly - the team’s was excellent with minimum discomfort. I highly recommend this location and team if you are considering hair restoration. You will not regret it!

PA Kristi was super professional and extremely knowledgeable, patiently explaining the procedure each step of the way and taking care to make it as comfortable as possible. She was also very personable and easy to talk to, so the procedure (1600 FUE) went smoothly without a hitch and minimal discomfort. Technician Ayah was also amazingly helpful, super competent, and very attentive throughout the process. I would highly recommend the Maxim team!

I want to start off by saying how extremely pleased I am with the results I got after my eyebrow FUE procedure. From the very beginning, Maxim's office manager, Jasmein Kaur, and Yale Certified PA-C, Kristi Perry, were very attentive when answering my questions during our initial consultation. They were very flexible with me during the scheduling process. During the procedure, Kristi and Ayah made sure I was relaxed and comfortable before beginning and I was very appreciative of that, as before going into the appointment I was feeling a bit anxious as I generally do before surgeries. Before the transplant, Kristi asked me what I was looking for in terms of results and made sure I was comfortable with the way everything looked before starting. Throughout the procedure, all of my questions were answered. The Maxim team was also kind enough to make sure I had a lunch break with food provided. I felt vey well taken care of while I was there. The procedure was minimally invasive and Kristi took extra measures to make sure I wasn't in pain throughout. Furthermore, my recovery process was very quick and almost painless! I had very minimal swelling and only took pain killers the day of the surgery. I went in for my 2-week followup appointment, and again, Kristi was exceptional in her knowledge and expertise and explaining the details and post op/long term care instructions. I can't say it enough, I am extremely satisfied with my experience at Maxim, and highly recommend the Maxim team for FUE services.

Hands down, the Alexandria, VA branch has the most outstanding staff! I got the FUE procedure done approx. 3 months ago and I am shockingly starting to see results before the time Dr. Grace suggested. Dr. Grace and her team are very knowledgeable and they went above & beyond to ensure I was taken care of during the procedure. From the consultation up until now, Grace answered any questions I had. She explained all possibilities that could occur before having the procedure so that I could have a realistic view of what to expect. Overall, I had an excellent experience and I highly recommend Maxim to anyone who is thinking about getting the procedure.

As for many surgeries, there will be some sort of pain along the way. Everyone from Rita, Grace, Yen and Nora... all of them took good care of me and i felt the care and concern before and after the surgery. the team is transparent with the hair restoration process and after i did my comparison with the other places on how much it would cost for me, Maxim gave me the best deal compared to the other places that i checked out. overall, i had a wonderful experience and i highly recommend the hair restoration service at Maxim (Alexandria VA).

I had a great experience doing an FUE transplant at Maxim. I initially met with Joseph Hart and Jessie to do my consultation and Joseph was extremely informative in terms of how the procedure works, what to expect, and also the risks to consider. In terms of the procedure itself, the team that took care of me included Rhonda and Kristi (lead providers) and Alma, Aya, Maria, and Monique as techs. I was greeted warmly by Jasmine the patient coordinator and she helped me with some of the initial forms that I needed to complete. Rhonda and Kristi were great in terms of helping me design the beard outline itself. They helped me create something that worked for my face uniquely and also set realistic expectations about what to get out of an initial procedure. They both had great energy and I felt like I was among team of people who knew their craft well. They were focused on making the beard outline as natural as possible, conscious of angular placement of the hairs, etc. The techs (Alma, Aya, Maria, Monique) did the follicle placement after Rhonda and Kristi harvested and created the punctures in my facial area. They were efficient, kept me at ease, and invested in what they were doing. What I admire about this team is that they also clearly looked like they were having fun in the process, they are passionate about what they do. I walked away happy with my result and look forward to how it grows out over the next several months. Would feel 100% comfortable recommending this place to others. Feel lucky to have run into a team that worked this well together and was invested in me coming away with something I was happy with. Big win.

I want to begin by saying how amazing I felt after leaving Maxim Hair Restoration. I will start by mentioning that I’ve been having hair loss issues for a while now. I've tried product after product and went to a different dermatologist, which provided no information or help. I was on the edge of just giving up until Maxim came along. I signed up for a free consultation, and it was the best decision to make an appointment. Off the bat, I'd mention the problems that I am currently having. Which they informed me of the reason why I am losing hair and giving me the solution that I can take to help me in the direction of recovery. That is what I needed to hear, giving me a sort of plan, and Maxim cares about you. And I felt very taken care of even though it was a free consultation, I will recommend this to anybody who is having issues with hair loss, and I will indeed come back in the future.

I’ve gotten lots of complements in my hair! The process was very simply A to Z. I would recommend FUE procedure to anyone considering it. My confidence level is back, and I look 10 years younger. Great friendly staff. Procedure was worth every penny.
