"Where do I start? I had surgery within 4 days of my first consultation. I never knew this was even an option for me! As hard as this is for me to say, I had this issue and keep my hair very long so no one could see it. I never mentioned it to my loved ones, so when I got to my first appointment, I was shaking head to toe because I knew I had to show them. Dr. Hakimi made me so comfortable and quickly assured me that the surgery to remove a "buffalo hump" was one of the quickest and that he did them regularly. I was so relieved and with the help of his wonderful office staff, I scheduled my surgery, applied/obtained a payment plan to do it and was out the door to take my covid test and prep for Tuesday! It all happened so fast! They kept in contact with me and the day of surgery, I was met with the sweetest medical assistant who got me prepped, made me laugh constantly and was there during the procedure with me. Everything was perfect! I am now 6 days post op and still can't believe this has happened for me! This thing that I hated more than anything else on my body, is gone. So easy, so quickly and I feel like one blessed girl. The ladies in the office have contacted me and are the absolute sweetest! I can only say positive things about this experience. Dr. Hakimi, his staff and the procedure itself are a 10 out of 10. If you're on the fence on doing this, you can trust me when I say, go. Do it. You will not be sorry."
