Hi Guys, I am new on here although I am a little confused after booking a consultation with Dr Reddy following research and hearing good things about him. I contacted the private clinic to arrange a consultation and was told the next available date with Dr Reddy was in November. I also submitted my details via a different website https://drraghureddy.com/ and found I had a response from an @gmail account. Finding this a little suspicious I questioned the authenticity of the email address and it would appear legitimate. Has anybody else booked in via this method with Dr Reddy? I assume it is a direct way of seeing him rather than waiting to get an appointment via one of his affiliated clinics.
Hi all, so after research and many years on here I finally got my hair transplant! i had fue 2200 grafts with a graft ratio around 3. will be updating as much as possible so please feel free to comment. i picked Dr Reddy based on his quality of work and his very respected reputation. The forum has been a massive help and made my selection of doctors far easier. i went to Dr Reddys clinic in Selston as after my initial consultation, found it to be cheaper and they could fit me in a lot sooner. On the first day I arrived a bit anxious,I was soon calmed down by Dr reddy and his team whom are all very welcoming ,friendly and funny yet still very professional. After the initial shave and planned hair line etc the procedure starts. There is a bit of pain with the anaesthetic but once numbed the majority of the procedure is painless. The worst part for me is keeping still ! I’m definitely a fidgeter. I think day 1 we did around half the planned grafts all of which was from the back of my head. The limited time the grafts are out and back in makes a lot of sense and hopefully will yield the most optimal results. The dr told me I had healthy chunky grafts so fingers crossed for a great result ! Lunch was provided on both days and the team really can’t do enough for you. Day two was much of the same only using the sides this time for the graft extraction. will post pictures later today.
Hello, I previously documented my first transplant in 2013 with Dr De Reys – see link below: http://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/eve/171535-3000-grafts-dr-de-reys-1-2nd-july.html At the time, I became a bit disillusioned with this website as I felt at times that some of the comments posted about people were too harsh and a little underhand. As such, I deleted my account, but have still been a regular visitor over the years. I see this website as support forum, where people can read about a person’s experiences, see pictures, and then make an informed decision about choosing a particular surgeon or not. As such, this blog is for those considering either Dr De Reys or Dr Reddy. Hair Transplant 2: 1800 grafts over 2 days in June 2014 I decided to take the plunge again to thicken up my front and crown. Other consultations prior to my first surgery suggested (e.g., Feriduni) said I would need more grafts than Dr De Reys estimated, so I always thought I might have to go back to get it thickened up a little. Compared to Transplant 2, Transplant 1 was a walk in the park. I found the whole thing completely excruciating. In my first operation, the only things that hurt where the injections and making the hairline, the rest was fine. Hair transplant 2 was a complete nightmare!! Contrastingly, the injections did not hurt, but everything else did!! I felt every extraction, incision, and implant. All were really painful. The second day was even worse, because my head was so sore from the previous day. I remember we had a break on the second day and I could not face the agony of going back for more time on the “torture bench,” but wanted to get the job finished. Dr De Reys could see that I was in discomfort and did his best to eradicate the pain with medication, but it did not alleviate the pain. He mentioned that people coming back for an operation after 12 months or so can sometimes experience a lot of pain during the procedure. Normally, I have a high threshold for pain, but I would say this is was tough, because it lasted all day and there was no let up. That said, as the procedure was finished, I was pain free again. As I mentioned previously, he is very caring and personable, and I like the set up there, which is a building adapted for operations that includes the surgery room, lounge, bedroom, and kitchen. It is in a really nice quiet town too. I definitely think that Dr De Reys is a person that you can trust, who is not in it for the money and cares for his patients. He regularly e-mailed me for progress reports. I’ve attached some pictures immediately after and some in 2017, which is almost three years after the operation. I must say that immediately after my operation I started taking 1mg of finasteride every day and I am still on the dose now. I previously tried combining finasteride and minoxidil in 2007. Although the results were excellent, I had sexual side effects, so I stopped taking both of them. A few years later, I went back on minoxidil and noticed the same thing again (struggled to sustain an erection on occasions, which had never previously happened). At the time, I did not give this much thought, and I know there is little/no evidence for minoxidil side effects, but anecdotally, it affected me! This time, on just finasteride I have not had any problems whatsoever. In terms of the results, and where I came from, I am happy with the outcome of first two procedures, especially the hairline and the work done at the front. So far, no one guessed I’d had a hair transplant. I still wear fibres in my crown, so decided I would get that thickened up. Initially, I was going to back to Dr De Reys, but came down with a bug on the day I was due to fly out and it coincided with the attack at Brussels airport – I would have flown home that morning. As such, my partner did not want me going back there, so I looked for UK surgeons. I did lose my deposit though, which was a pain.
