Here is a 37-year-old transgender patient with severe hair loss in the frontal area of the scalp. After consulting with Dr. Gabel, the patient decided on going with Dr. Gabel's recommendation of a FUT Strip harvest procedure in which 3,166 follicular unit hair grafts were transplanted by Dr. Gabel and staff into the frontotemporal and frontal hairline in one session. The postoperative results of the procedure were taken approximately 36 months after the surgery.

Real Patient Testimonials

"Being a surgeon myself, I know good work and technique when I see it. Dr. Gabel's attention to detail is unsurpassed. I felt very comfortable having him perform such a life-changing procedure and would recommend Dr. Gabel to anyone considering surgical hair transplantation.."

Dr. Gabel and his team are amazing. The doctor is not just a hair restoration expert. He is an artist. I mention that because I researched a great deal before choosing Dr. Gabel. There are cheaper hair restoration options, including ones with fancy computerized gadgets. But getting a natural and satisfactory result in hair restoration requires artistry, and Dr. Gabel delivers. No hair restoration process is inexpensive. If one is going to spend the money to undergo the process, I would suggest that a penny saved is a hundred times a pound foolish.

I just had my second procedure with Dr. Gabel. He is great, his staff is great and most importantly his results are great. I had my crown filled in with my first procedure with great results, so that's why i trust him with my hairline. So far it's 4 days since my procedure and just looking at where my new hairline will be has me pretty stoked.

Dr. Gabel is caring and attentive to his patient's needs and his staff is top notch.

Dr. Gabel saved my life! Not only did he give me the most natural looking hair line, his monitoring of my heart saved my life. He detected a heart problem during my procedure. I immediately went to a cardiologist. Not only am I extremely pleased with my hair, his safety procedures saved my life. I can't say enough about how wonderful Dr. Gabel is! Nobody else has his level of artistry combined with the best safety practices. He is simply the best!

Dr.Gabel is such the professional.  He performs quite remarkable work, and I can't say enough about him. His credentials are very impressive.  After a couple of consults around the Portland area it was quite evident that this was the only place I felt comfortable going to. The team he has assembled work together flawlessly, and they go out of their way to make you feel at home while your there.  I can't say enough about my experience, and I wouldn't go anywhere else.  From the first consult to post-op follow up, Dr.Gabel is there for you.

I can't say enough how happy I was with the entire staff and procedure itself. I feel like I was treated very well by Dr. Gabel and everyone who was part of the procedures I had. Everyone was friendly and professional and I am so satisfied with the results that I got from the work that was done. I know that spending this kind of money for a cosmetic procedure can definitely be a shock to the system but every day now now I look in the mirror and see the man that I want to be looking back at me and it makes a huge difference in my happiness so I think it was worth every penny. I highly recommend Dr. Gabel and think if you are serious about hair replacement this is the place to go.
