"Dr.Kridel and his staff are the most amazing team out there. He performed my rhinoplasty and took care of each one of my concerns. As a senior in high school, I had no confidence when it came to my nose but after the surgery I look amazing and I’m actually more outgoing. I truly recommend him and his work. He is a very genuine person and cares for every patient. Honestly the best surgeon in Houston."- S.A. / Google / May 04, 2019

"I am about 6 weeks out from a grade 4 rhinoplasty revision and septaplasty surgery with Dr. Kridel. I did EXTENSIVE research before I chose my doctor. I was even willing to travel out of state if necessary. I wanted to choose the best, most capable, and skilled doctor, and I did. Dr. Kridel is still the BEST!I had my first septaplasty and rhinoplasty surgery almost 30 years ago and it was a horrific ordeal that left me feeling like I had PTSD for many years. My nose was never the same and eventually the tip started curving to the right and I could not breathe through my nose. I was too scared to go through the experience again, and I was afraid that I'd spend all the money and end up with similar results. Medicine has come a long way, in the past 30 years, and sometimes you get what you pay for in life. Dr. Kridel was not the cheapest, but I am confident that he is indeed the BEST possible option for me. I needed nine grafts to rebuild my nose, and my surgery was over 6 hours long. I woke up after surgery with minimal swelling; whereas, in my previous surgery I woke up with my eyes swollen shut and all bruised up. I never took a pain pill, as it was not needed. I did take Tylenol a few times. Bruising and swelling lasted a couple of days and then subsided. I've been waiting to review Dr. Kridel until I could fully determine the success of my surgery, and I'm super grateful to report to you that I can see that my nose will hold it's shape. I'm able to breathe and my nostrils are now symmetrical. There is no question that Dr. Kridel gave me his best work, and I'm so grateful!I've read reviews that claim that Dr. Kridel needs to move on, as he's getting older, but this is EXTREMELY false. Dr. Kridel is still very passionate about his craft and about teaching and helping others. He is still on the cutting edge of medicine in his field. He helps write text-books on these procedures, so he's clearly still extremely knowledgeable. On the day of surgery, you could tell that he was eager to help me and excited to do the surgery. There was nothing bored, checked-out, or overworked about him. I recommend that you do your research and interview a few doctors. You will see that Dr. Kridel and the two doctors that work with him are top-notch. I have met all three of them, and you cannot go wrong with their bedside manner, knowledge and expertise. This is the place you want to go for sure! I have seen Dr Caceres many times post-surgery, and he was always patient with me, kind, and caring. I was terrified to have my stitches and packing out, but he helped me get through it without any tears! Dr. Caceres truly cares about his patients and that goes a long way!Let me also point out that very few doctors do both procedures: plastic surgery (rhinoplasty) and ENT work (septaplasty). When it comes to the look and function of your nose, you want someone highly skilled at both."- J.P. / Google / Sep 06, 2019
While men tend to experience widespread hair loss, women tend to have thinning hair and hair loss throughout the head. Because hair loss in women is more diffuse and tends to center on the top of their scalp, nonsurgical treatments can be very helpful. NeoLTS light hair restoration treatments have been shown to improve hair growth and thickness. This can be done alone or in combination with Hair Medica products to optimize hair growth. Also, platelet-rich-plasma injections stimulate the hair follicles to grow thicker, healthier hairs. These are simple, in-office injections and can be repeated for best results.
NeoLTS Light Therapy
The NeoLTS is a painless, relaxing light treatment that safely stimulates hair growth on all skin and hair types. The light stimulates dormant hair follicles into becoming active so new hair is grown, while improving the health and thickness of existing hair follicles. The NeoLTS can be used in combination with the Hair Medica System and/or platelet rich plasma injections to boost hair growth without surgery. The NeoLTS light therapy treatment also works well as a complement to the NeoGraft hair transplant for enhanced hair growth. There is no downtime or skin changes, so you can have a NeoLTS treatment over your lunch hour and no one will know.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
We can use your own healing abilities to stimulate hair growth. The growth factors in your blood are isolated and injected into the scalp in a series of injections. These growth factors help “wake up” your hair follicles and encourage them to grow again. This procedure is relatively quick, can be done in the office and has minimal downtime.
Hair Medica Products
Hair Medica products use a hormone-free, scientific approach to promote hair growth. Hair Medica creates a supportive environment to promote your own body’s ability to grow hair. Hair Medica uses natural ingredients to stimulate the growth of dormant hair follicles, increase the thickness of existing hairs, and maintain the health of existing hair. Hair Medica does not have unwanted side effects, like sexual problems or facial hair growth in women, which can be caused by other hair growth medications.
