DR. CHUGHTAI'S HAIR RESTORATION EXPERIENCE
Dr. Chughtai's personal hair loss story began when she was in college. During treatment for a medical condition, she was prescribed a corticosteroid that caused her hair to fall out. Although this side effect was only temporary, Dr. Chughtai never forgot how it felt to lose her hair. In more recent years, she experienced problems with hair loss once more during the childbirth process for each of her three children. In fact, one of her children also required her services for a condition called alopecia areata, a fairly common condition that attacks the hair follicles and leads to unpredictable, patchy hair loss.
"Five Stars - Best dr i ever have.rigo."
"I recently had a hair transplant procedure with Dr. Shah and his team and I have to say that it was an awesome experience. Dr. Shah and his wife, Dr. Chughtai, were with me every step of the way. Even a couple of weeks after the surgery, I got a call from his office seeing how I was doing. And the recovery has been going amazingly. I'm only a month in, but I'm noticing a difference! And the big thing for me? No scarring! I've been wanting to do this for sometime and did so much research. I'm really glad I chose Dr. Shah."
"I can't say enough amazing things about this office. From the front desk to the incredible Dr. Shah and Dr. Sameea, I have never been to an office that is so professional and that really listens to my concerns and achieves my esthetic goals."
"Miraculous !! - I had an an excellent experience. Dr Chughtai took the time to answer all my questions and allay all my fears. I went into the procedure feeling very confident.

And for the man in my life...it’s like Christmas. My p..."
"ARTAS FUE TRANSPLANT EXPERT - Dr. Shah is an acclaimed plastic surgeon. Using the latest FUE technology, the ARTAS ROBOT, he performed a hair transplant on me. The procedure was painless, his expertise was evident, and the results speak for themselves. I couldn't be more pleased that I choose Dr. Shah and his staff for the procedure. His accolades speak for themselves however I cannot express enough how grateful I am to have found a Surgeon that focuses so much on regenerative medicine. While I knew I wanted the ARTAS procedure, the provision of regenerative medicine he and Dr. Chughtai offered in conjunction with the procedure sealed the deal. Phenomenal office, support staff, and credentials. While I can only personally speak to his skill/care before, during and after the ARTAS procedure - his other reviews show that my experience with him was not an anomaly. I couldn't be more impressed!"
