Dr.Farjo.

Recommended Posts

Guest donald

I have just had a hair transplant two weeks ago performed by Dr Bessam Farjo of the Farjo medical centre in Manchester.

 

I have been suffering hair loss for quite some years now but by stabilising it with meds over the lat few years i thought it was finely time to go for a ht as iam in my forties and been unhappy with my hair for quite some time.

 

I did over a year of research contemplating clinics in the USA and Turkey but decided to stay here in he UK and came to the conclusion that Dr farjo was the man for me.

After meeting the liaison manager mick and Dr Farjo at the consulttion i knew i had made the right decision to gt it done here in the UK.They were very informative proffessional and not salesman like at all which i liked.

 

So ht day 6 April there i was at the Farjo clinic after having a nice relaxing night in a hotel close to the clinic (which they arranged for me).I met Dr Farjo and was told what would happen tat day,he checked by BP and then gave me a mild sedative to relax me.I was then ushered to the surgery room which as immaculately clean and state of the art.Dr Farjo drew my hairline and showed me where he was putting the grafts crown,vertex, temples.the it was time to move the donor strip,he injected the donor area with the anaeshetic a few

needle pricks but relativel painless,then began to remove the strip which i never felt a thing and stapled me up.It was time to make the incisions for the grafts to be planted (again no pain felt during this).

Then came the planting of the grafts which was done by Nilofer Farjo and there team (so basically your getting two transplant surgeons for the price of one).

 

2087 grafts were placed which was more than the 1700 i paid for.

 

301 1 hair

 

1497 2 hair

 

286 3-4 hair.

 

All the medical staff were attentive all the way through the procedure offering me drinks snacks a nice lunch and a choice of dvds to watch.Overall the procedure was comfortable painless and quite relaxing.

 

After the procedue i was issued with a aftercare pack containing post-op aftercare instructions medication and shampoo.

 

The whole day i felt cared for and in positive hands of people who no what they are doing and putting there patients first.I would recommend anybody looking into getting a ht to highly consider Dr Farjo and his team.

 

I would like to say a special thankyou to Dr Farjo,Mick and the whole team for looking after me.

 

Now its just the waiting game:(

Up- date 2 months now.

 

Every thing has healed now and all the grafts have shead,my hair is looking thinner than it has ever looked, maybe a bit of shockloss or seasonal shed its hard to tell. what i can tell you that i had my hair cut short on the back and sides and you can not see the scar at all its healing very nicely.I know the 2 month mark is hard as your hair looks worse than before but roll on the next few months,never thought i would look forward to the winter months coming as much.

Ok 4.5 months now. Think all the shockloss has grown back and have noticed some growth around the temple area one side growing more than the other,the top of my hair seems to be a little thicker as well.The dissapointment is the crown which is showing no growth at all,i can feel some stuble in that area but can not see anything.Do crowns grow slower? i know that it is still early days.

Donald,

 

You have hit that wall known as the the waiting game.it can be so frustrating, i know because i hear it often.

Patience is a virtue and i know it is hard as i am probably the most impatient person on the planet.Crowns just seem to take longer but you are at the very early stages of the game, just after the kick off really.I will put your pics on before the end of the week but remember it will be 12 months before you see anything really worthwhile and it develops further as the preceding months idle by.

Spex wrote a good topic on this and i thiink it is worth reading.

I think Donald had a surprise when he realised how far he had come in such a short space of time.In relation to his pictures which have been added.

 

 

Mick,

 

I don`t believe that is me, must be someone elses head in those photos.

I didn`t realize i was that bald!

 

When i look at those phots iam definitely progressing in the right direction at this early stage, roll on the months to come.

 

Thanks again Mick.

Hi Donald,

 

Good to hear that your pleased with your results to date, im thinking of having a transplant with Dr Farjo for about 2000 grafts, can you please advise how much this cost?

 

Although ive heard many good things about farjo hair whic i have no reason to doubt, i find it surprising they are the only clinic that does not have a rate card on their website

 

Appreciate your help

I had a surgery with Dr Farjo, it has been 3 years now I didn't get any result... keep away from him he is an absolute cheat.. grab money and don't do anything ..BIGGEST CHEAT..if you are looking for hair transplant go with dr Madhu Hyderabad India.. you can get all done one third of the money you spend in U.K. Also including your all the expenses (flight 4 star hotel)

KEEP AWAY FROM DR FARJO

 

That's quite some accusations you're making Rasheed. Dr. Farjo is a very well respected surgeon who in the time I've known him (eighteen years) has only ever been entirely competent and honest. Please tell me (by private message if you prefer) your name and the date of your procedure with us so I can look into this.
