Hi all, Thanks to many of you posting your experiences and photos I have finally decided to have a hair transplant mostly for my receding hairline. When the number of days after a hair cut it took for my hair to look good increased from 5, to 10, to 14, to 30, I knew something had to be done, and I am truly appreciative of the amazing options we have available to us in this day and age. There is some thinning to the crown but I was not bothered by it (below photo is quite a harsh view of it) Of the 3 options available, I opted for the DHI method in which they use utilise choi pens to implant the hairs for a denser result. Apparently a DHI expert is flown in to conduct the operation. Grafts: 2800 Date: 1st September 2018 PRE operation pics These are all 'best hair' photos - hair grown long to hide the recession. I rarely allowed photos when my hair was short.
Today, I would like to tell you about my experience with Dr Viral Desai and share some of facts, which will give you a clear idea about the qualification he has and the experience he holds in the field of plastic and cosmetic surgery as well as in the hair restoration treatment DHI (Direct Hair Implant). Many people have made a misconception in their mind that FUE is like DHI, but it's not. The best part about DHI is it’s Just one day process, in fact, it takes less than 5 hours for the treatment. After the surgery is done the patient can go back to his or her home. During the process, you won't feel any pain and can do anything you want to like talk to your friends, watch Tv, work on your laptop etc. I can tell you this because I went through the treatment and the experience was amazing Coming back to the topic, Dr Viral Desai awarded with the National Icon in Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery in 2010 is one of the famous specialists for plastic and restorative medical procedure and in addition, he is the author of DHI Hair Transplant method in India. Holding an experience of 18 years and certified for the Aesthetic and Cosmetic specialist, Plastic Surgeon, Reconstructive Surgeon Pioneer originator Medical Director DHI India, CPLSS, Sarla Hospital and Desai Hospital Pvt Ltd. Dr Viral Desai since his adolescence constantly longed for turning into the best specialist. He finished his MBBS from Lokmanya Tilak Municipal Medical College, Sion. After which joined residency in General Surgery and Oncosurgery at Tata Hospital, KEM Hospital, and Cooper Hospital, from there on he took up the Super-Speciality in Plastic Surgery (M.S.) course at Sir J. J. Gathering of Hospitals, Mumbai. Dr Viral Desai speaks with his patients to know the what they require. He screens his patients and tells his patients if the desires they have made are reasonable. He gives a total data about the methodology to be taken after for the further treatment. After knowing and experiencing the same conditions I can say that the false statements made by some jealous people for him are not good If you had any problem with the treatment, one should again visit the doctor not start complaining about him online. So, if there is someone who is looking for the doctor for his hair restoration or for any hair related problems I would recommend you, Dr Viral Desai, and if you want to know more about him you can
Andag2 posted a topic in Hair Restoration Questions and AnswersHi All, I am new to the forum and am writing to share with you my plan for tackling hair loss and request your advice/views. I am a 29 yo male and I have been suffering from hair loss for a few years. Hair was never one of my strengths, I think that my density has always been average and my hair is quite thin. However, thinning was very minimal till a couple of years back, so it was unnoticeable in reality. In the last couple of years things changed: I have lost a substantial amount of hair on the top of my head - see pics attached. What may be important to mention is that I am losing hair from a broad area, however I am not 'bald' anywhere yet, i.e. my hairline has not moved, my crown is not worse than other parts. Looking at Norwood types, it seems to me that, when the loss gets worse, it may fit with the 5 type. I have been on Minoxidil for a while, although started applying it consistently only a few months ago. I think it helps, as it has stopped shedding lately, but I know it will not be able to produce the improvement I am looking for without surgery. Also, let me point out that I am negative to taking propecia - after doing some research I recognise that it helps, however I am not willing to risk experiencing the side effects. So here is the plan: looking to book a FUE for around 2000 grafts. I hope that this will cover quite well for a few years, while it will leave a good amount of extra hair in the donor area for future procedures, if required. Hopefully, in a few years hair cloning will also be available, which could be a game changer! In terms of my budget, I am looking at around 2 euro per graft that would translate to ?4,000. If I find someone exceptional, I may consider to go up to 15% more, but I don't see the point in paying more. Now to the point: while I am based in London, I am originally from Greece. I reached out to my network to see whether there are any good doctors / clinics over there and a few friends, who are doctors, pointed me to DHI. Their price is very reasonable and a couple of people who tried them were pleased with the result. However, I have not been able to find a lot of feedback online on them and looking for more info before making a decision. If I don't go with DHI, I am thinking to make contact with the following, who have gathered a lot of positive comments in various forums: Erdogan, Rahal, Demirsoy, Doganay, Bhatti, Bisanga, Lorenzo, Lupanzula, Hasson & Wong Could you please advise: 1/ do you have any info on DHI or other Greek clinics / doctors you would suggest? 2/ given the info I have provided above (procedure, no of grafts, budget etc.), who would you suggest from the above list? 3/ if you were in my shoes, would you do anything differently and, if yes, why? Any advice will be much appreciated! Kind regards, Andy
