I've had the pleasure

I’ve had the pleasure of visiting Dr. Barrera and his team three times over nearly 20 years, and I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. The staff is exceptional, and Dr. Barrera is highly skilled. Their post-surgery follow-up is outstanding, and they consistently exceed expectations, which is a rarity these days. By the way, I’m willing to travel a considerable distance to Houston because I firmly believe they offer some of the very best hair transplant work and service in the country.

I received a glowing recommendation for Dr. Barrera from another surgeon who claimed that Dr. Barrera was the best at hair transplants. Based on that recommendation, I made the drive from Dallas to Houston to have my “sideburns” restored after a recent facelift. While it’s still early in the process, I must say that my hairline looks better than the one I was born with! Dr. Barrera was fantastic to work with. He took the time to explain each step of the procedure and ensured that I was comfortable throughout. I can’t praise Dr. Barrera and his staff enough, and I highly recommend him for any cosmetic procedure you may be considering!

Dr. Barrera and his
Dr. Barrera and his

Dr. Barrera and his office staff are absolutely AMAZING. It’s incredibly important to find a doctor who not only knows your name but genuinely CARES about you and provides exceptional support throughout the entire experience. I underwent a hair transplant surgery in February 2020. I had a prominent forehead that had been a source of insecurity for me since childhood. Dr. Barrera’s surgery involves taking hair from the back of the head, individual strands, and placing them in the forehead area to fill in the space. He even addressed areas where I didn’t realize it was thinning. That’s what I call attention to detail! I am thrilled with the results. While my hair is still growing in, it has reached my desired bang length, and it looks incredibly natural. Dr. Barrera added enough hair to reduce my forehead size by about 1 or 2 inches (yes, I have a big head!), which has made a significant difference. I did thorough research before choosing Dr. Barrera, and he is renowned in the plastic surgery world, especially for his expertise in hair transplants. So, not only is he the best, but he also has excellent bedside manner – it’s a winning combination! If you have any concerns about your hairline or thinning hair, I highly recommend seeing him. While his prices are reasonable, when it comes to making changes to your body, you want the best, regardless of the cost.
