This 43 year-old Investment Broker came to Dr. Rahal after extensively researching the forums to find a surgeon who would produce the specific results he was looking for. Before his hair restoration, this patient would avoid bad-weather days, as he was afraid to deal with what the elements usually did to his thinning hair. He was a Norwood III, and didn't want to deal with the self-esteem issues that went with his hair loss any more. In August 2012, the patient flew to Ottawa to have his procedure in Dr. Rahal's clinic. He received 2205 grafts via FUE. The photos taken and posted here are one year after his procedure. The patient had 450 single grafts, 1081 double grafts, and 674 triple grafts, for a total of 4634 hairs. The patient no longer hides his head under hats, and spends less time worrying about his hair and more time enjoying his hobbies of exercise and golf! He recently stated in an interview that he thinks he went to "one of, if not the very best surgeon in the field". To this day, his hairdresser has no idea that he has had a transplant because of the natural result!!!
This patient came to Dr. Rahal to restore his frontal hairline, and received 2617 grafts via FUE. The patient emailed us these photos recently to share the progress of his results. He is currently 9 months post-op from his procedure, and is very satisfied with the transplant and the state of his hair currently.
I have met Dr Rahal few months back in his clinic and even drove me back to my place in Ottawa.
This guy is both humble and confident. He looks at your eyes, and then to your hair, and he will tell you what he thinks you need based on your expectations and a number of physiologic variables inside his mind.
He is never arrogant (I hate arrogant doctors) and he never promises you the moon. He uses the word "try" when he means it, that "we will try" to get as much as FUE grafts.
In contrast to some opinions, he is never aggressive in lowering hairline. He just excels in a real good, thick hairline. He'd say, "I don't think it's a good idea to aggressively lower your hairline, what you need is..."
Never badmouths other clinics/doctors. I knew of another doctor who does FUE and he boasts that those doctos who don't do FUE are lazy. Just gives me tinnitus inside my ears.
When asked if he's happy on what he does as his SUV rolls onto the icy Ottawa streets, I was expecting his answer to be something like, "Nah, I'm really getting tired of this sh*t, same thing every day," instead, he told me, "Yeah, I still love the art and the science of it (hair transplant)." That's without hesitation or equivocation.
"You're very popular in the forum," I quipped, expecting him to pat his own back and respond in a narcissistic way. All he did was smile and almost felt embarrassed.
