Having had FUE hair transplant with Dr Arshad “DrA” at the Hair Dr Clinic in Dewsbury West Yorkshire in February 2018 and getting amazing results and that self confidence back if not an increased self confidence it was only natural and a given that I would return to get a 2nd FUE procedure with the same Dr and Clinic. I had my year follow up of my first transplant in March of this year and was very pleased with the results and having hair and a hairline again. The first procedure was to create a hairline that I had lost with receding temples and mid scalp. We also discussed and went ahead with correcting my double crown that span in opposite directions which would appear bald and likely I would have in time lost hair there so was a great idea to do it now before losing any more hair. I had around 4000 grafts for the hairline, mid scalp and crown in this first procedure. At this year's follow up with Dr A we discussed that I still have enough donor hair to add density to the hairline and temples. Myself and the Dr was very pleased with the results of the first transplant but it was something I wanted to discuss with Dr Arshad about getting it more thicker in the hairline and temples. You can imagine it was music to my ears that we could. Dr A talked me though what could be achieved and left it with me. I am a manager of a social club in Leeds and can imagine I get busy at times and fitting a 2nd transplant was tricky to do right away like I wanted but we found a slot for August 28th 2019. Sommiya, always helpful and pleasant worked with me to find a slot around me and my job, no pressure and when I was ready and able. Choosing the Hair Dr Clinic the first time was easy as I felt in safe experienced hands with every step of the procedure , after care and expectations/achievable results to me by Dr Arshad and it was not a rushed “sales pitchy” consultation. Dr A takes his time with you and ensures you fully understand and are happy with what has been discussed. Therefore having this 2nd Procedure I would only go back to the Hair Dr Clinic and Dr A. FUE is an amazing technique and very non invasive procedure! You do not feel the grafts been harvested and are fully numb in the donor area. Yes just like going to the dentist the first injections is a sharp scratch and make the eyes water a bit but that’s nothing and you are numb in a minute or two. The healing time of the donor area is amazingly rapid with FUE as the tiny holes seem to close up overnight and within a week or two all healed up and your hair has grown back and covered your donor area. I never liked the idea of FUT as cutting away a strip of skin from the back donor hair leaving you with a linear scar that has more risk of infection too is not appealing to me at all. Also then slicing up the grafts from the strip of skin could damage the grafts leaving them no longer suitable. FUE and Dr A’s one touch technique has the follicle removed and in a dish of solution that keeps the follicle alive and healthy immediately until it is time to implant. This gives the very best survival of the follicles for implantation and are not out in the air been handled too long as with FUT. Preparing for a hair transplant this time around was relatively simple. I knew what was involved and what to expect and as I was returning to the Hair Dr Clinic and Dr A made it even more easy. I had no worries about the procedure and had full trust and confidence in Dr A to give me that wanted density in the hairline and temples. Dr A’s experience and medical background has me fully at ease to just turn up and get straight to it. I was a bit bummed out about shaving all my new hair off and ‘starting again’ sort of thing but when we first talked about a 2nd transplant I was told that I now have hair where I did not before and that hair from the 1st transplant will grow back immediately just like the back and side do. Therefore I will be able to style my hair as I wait for the 2nd transplanted hair to come. Plus shaving your hair off to get amazing hair back is a small sacrifice and totally worth it. Taking Finasteride like most men is a worry with the small chance of side affects to our sex drives and impotence mainly as I am assured that this is only affects a small percentage of men. I have taken them for over a year now and will continue for this year till the full regrowth of my 2nd transplant. I have had no concerns taking it up to now and spoken to other people on forums and my instagram page mikes_fue_story and one guy was older than me and had worries too but just had another baby. So having no worries myself and hearing things like that eases my mind on finasteride. And I have always had the mind set that if i even feel any different I will just stop taking them. Day of Procedure: 28th August 2019. I arrived at the Hair Dr Clinic in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire at 07:30 and greeted by Carol the friendly bubbly receptionist who made me a cup of tea while I waited to be called. Soon after I was called and brought to Dr Arshad’s office where he and Sommiya was waiting for me. Dr A had another look at my hair and we again talked about the proposed plan and achievement. We further discussed about adding more density to the temples and also strengthening the hairline. Dr A made a suggestion about a natural willows peak would suit me and give me an amazing hairline finish. Talking it over and visualizing it in the mirror where he marked it out I felt he was right and I had 100% in trust Dr A. I asked if I would have enough grafts to make this alteration and still have enough grafts to get the density in the hairline and temples and I was fully assure that I would. I then was given my pre medications as I read over a consent form which as consent forms go can me lots of small print and intimidating medical words to read. Hair Dr Clinic’s has a nice easy to read and follow format and fully informative explaining pre medication, pre procedure and what is all involved. I was now ready and we made our way to the treatment room where I was met with three technicians. Helen Serquina who also work on my first transplant was there with fellow technicians Natasha and Anna. Helen is a senior transplant technician with 16+ years in the profession and has worked all over the world. She also has a lovely and fun personality which adds to the comfortable atmosphere at the clinic but you know you’re in safe hands. Natasha and Anna both have a great number of years in the profession and have a friendly, warm personalities also which makes you so relaxed you do not feel like you’re in a clinic. They are propping me for the procedure like shaving my hair all of, which I personally think Helen enjoys too much (haha). Cleaning my head thoroughly, getting a gown on me and laid on the table ready for Dr A. All with good conversation and banta and not just told what to do which would add to your bad nerves if you are a bit uneasy with Dr’s and procedures etc. This atmosphere I love at it also passed the time too and takes your mind off it. Dr A then begins to numb your donor area with anesthetic and this is a sharp scratch and I felt this a little bit more this time, maybe because Dr A was this time taking grafts more from the sides and not the back where most came from in the first procedure to ensure my donor area does not become unevenly sparse. I was gettin numbing injections right behind the ear where the skin is thinner and more sensitive. It was not painful but I do think even though I was relaxed I also knew what to expect and when so maybe subconsciously I was tensing for the injections. Dr A constantly checked with me if I was ok and in any pain and if the numbing was taking place. Dr A then began harvesting grafts by using a follicular unit extraction machine that punch cuts around each follicle unit with a diameter range of 0.6mm - 1.3mm. Dr A used 0.7 on mine. Helen, Natasha and Anna was there taking the grafts of as Dr A selected and harvested them, caring for each graft by immediately placing them in a solution in a dish to keep them healthy and not handling them too much… “Dr A’s one touch technique”. And also counting up the number of hair each graft had. In the end I had 1637 grafts that consists of 1’s 294 - 2’s 661 - 3s & 4s 682. These will give me a total number of 4003 additional hair is my hairline and temples. This stage of the procedure takes around 3-4 hours and then we broke for lunch. Lunch at the Hair Dr Clinic is provided for you and I had a lovely sandwich, tea, juice, fruit and goodies to my pleasure. Everyone eats and chats together too and you are not left alone. There is also a cool full size pool table incase anyone throws down a challenge. I remember from my first time around Helen is quite the pool shark so I kept quiet and did not challenge. After Lunch we made our way back to the treatment room where Dr A was already there ready to begin. He started by numbing up my forehead and mid scalp where he will be making incisions for the new grafts to be placed. He also injects a solution under the scalp to lift the skin off the skull so that it is safer to make incisions. Dr A makes exactly 1637 incisions while technician Anna counts while he dose and since I can not feel a thing at this stage and sat up comfortably I ask Dr A if the tool he is using makes individual or multiple incisions. He answers “single incisions but its art”. He is carefully selecting where he wants the new grafts to be placed and where I need them… so yes it is art. This felt like it took around an hour max, but I ain’t clock watching and just chilling listening to music. Helen and Natasha then come and Dr A takes his break leaving his highly experienced technicians to place the grafts in the “beautiful Incisions” (their words) Dr A had made, making it a “joy to work with”. With the two technicians working together starting by using the 1s to strengthen the hairline and create a natural Widows peak for the first couple of rows, then the 2s, then 3s and 4s to fill in and mix in the mid scalp and temples. I am laid there literally wrapped in comfort because Helen placed extra pillows under my legs, bum and back thinking wow I am going to have some awesome hair after this! This took around 2 - 3 hours but you do not really have and idea of time as you are comfortable listening to music and chatting with the technicians while they give you awesome hair. Throughout the whole procedure and day I am asked how I am and if I need anything or the loo. At the end of the procedure and all the grafts are placed I am cleaned up, all grafts washed, vaseline put on the donor area and a bandage placed around my head to cover the donor area for the next 24 hours. Dr A and Sommiya are here to check and both are visibly thrilled and excited with the end result, which I said that filled me with joy before I have even seen myself! We make our way up to Dr Arshads office to take the post op medications and post op instructions given. Dr A gave me sheets of clear informative instructions day by day of the medication and dosage to take and when. A spray bottle and saline solution to spray the grafts and donor area every 2 hours to keep the grafts moist in this recent hot weather. It also helps with the crust when they form and any itching. Also I have some Sebamed shampoo for when I can gently wash my head over the sink after week 1. We then take that awaited look in the mirror and I am thrilled to see so many grafted hairs in the exact places I hoped to have more density. Also the stronger hairline with the added Widows peak looks amazing!! And I am thinking I am going to have hairstyles I have only dreamed of! We took some pictures and went for a drink in the canteen while my mate arrived for me. Again the whole day was exciting, comfortable and fun. And I can not thank everyone at the Hair Dr Clinic for their part in making it such a relaxing experience, leaving me totally at ease from start to finish. I am so happy and confident in myself immediately and more so 2nd time around because I know full well what to expect and how fast once the hairs have shed and begin to grow after a few months. I am totally excited and grateful to Dr Arshad and the Hair Dr clinic team. Feel blessed that in the Christmas period of 2017 when I was googling hair transplants in the UK and near Leeds just to get an idea of what could be done and a price for me and my hair loss. I found the Hair Dr Clinic 20 mins drive away and after meeting them for me they was no Dr or team better. Going to Turkey would have never been an option for me and even going to London ect Likely would not have happened too with work and taking that first step. Michael mikes_fue_story

Hi Friends, I am planning to get my hair transplantation done. After lots of reading and research, I have found out that Dr Tajinder Bhatti and Dr. Pradeep Sohi are one of the best doctors for FUE in India. I have read numerous reviews about Dr. Bhatti but have not seen many reviews for Dr. Pradeep Sohi. From Reviva website, it seems the results are really good and cost/graft is far less than Dr. Bhatti. I would be really grateful if someone can share more details/experience/reviews about Dr. Sohi. Thanks,
