Thanks Hariri. I was 27 recently and hopefully the meds keep working in the future as I get older.

Been on them about 5-6 years but no more transplants.....for now

Wow this is amazing, such a great result.

My immediate post op pictures are basically identical to yours, I had 2000 grafts in July. Hope I can get similar results to you because yours looks fantastic.

Congrats!

Chris Dave, Whats your Hair transplant history? like Grafts, Time, Place? Your case is very inspiring.

Hariri, I left school at the age of 16 and moved away to follow a career in professional football (or soccer in the USA) and unfortunately that did not materialise.

I was on a boys holiday with a load of lads in Greece when I was around 19 and I got out the shower with short hair and one of my pals pointed and joked 'Dayvo, you're losing your hair!'.

Dayvo is my nickname but at the time I didn't know anything about hair loss and I suspect he didn't either but my hairline had probably changed from a juvenile to an adult's or had a very minute amount of loss at most.

When I moved home at aged 20, I had some money saved up and thought I wanted to sort that out as to me at that young age,naive and desperate, I thought my looks were starting to erode already and any young kid with no good advice and uneducated is likely to make mistakes at that age.

One of the clinics who was marketing heavily back at that time was Norton clinic in the UK and I booked a consultation with them. I met the notorious Thomas Norton in Harley street.

Now if he was an honest,ethical guy, he would have turned me away and told me I was too young for surgery, go on finasteride for a year with minoxidil and come back to see the progress.

But he told me, 'yes Chris, you are losing your hair and we can help you'.

So after having a small strip procedure, with barely any growth, I went back a year later and Jeremy Isherwood( another notorious person) told me that I should have been on finasteride and that is was partially my fault.

Now having enrolled back in education, I was a student and money was harder to come by, so when I reached 23, I had some money and Jeremy Isherwood had said to me that he had left the previous company and the
new clinic(fue clinics) were performing this new revolutionary procedure(the fue hype) and that he was certain that the new surgeon at his clinic could repair my hair.

So again, I had a small procedure and this was fue this time. Again no growth and scarring, wasted donor supply and 4500-5000 pound in total now down the drain for a student who had earnt barely anything.

I left it a while and when I went back into full time work at 25, I said to myself, I am going to save up the money, research and sort out this out once and for all.

Fortunately I have thickish,dense hair so I could cover it by brushing it to the side and one would be the wiser.
My friend used to joke at work saying I had a wig by combing it over . My forelock was pretty strong but I had recession in the corners and about ten hairs growing on each corner.

A bit older,wiser and more mature, I was reading on the internet a lot and after avoiding Alvi Armani and having a consultation with HarleyStreetHair, I found Spex website.

I actually stumbled across Hasson&Wong website and saved them on my favourites on my computer just before I met Spex as I was blown away by their work.

I am guessing I wasted approximately 1000 grafts(maybe more or less) in total and around 4000-5000 GBP before I had 1900 grafts from Dr Feller.

I have been honest and posted my progress from day one with clear pictures up until the present day and have revealed my identity as I felt there are undoubtedly a lot of young guys and older guys who go through the same process and I wouldn't want them to make stupid mistakes like I did.

If I had not stumbled across him, I could have quite easily gone on to waste tens of thousand of pounds and depleted my donor supply and ultimately, that would have made me a very unhappy young man.

I was 27 last week and finally feel redemption

Spex,

Things are looking great and hopefully we will see less and less of these sort of cases in the future but i am not holding my breath.

Chris you chose wisely and now you can get on with your life minus the hassle of a bad transplant.

Mick

Thanks for the comment guys and I totally agree Mick.

It will keep happening until there are fundamental changes in this industry.
