Well I thought I’d start by describing how the day went as that’s what most people are interested in and will talk about some other useful stuff in another post…   So my procedure day had finally ar

I think "Hair Transplant patient of the week" is definitely on the cards ;)

 

1978Matt - did the Dr state how many grafts left you have in your donor supply for any future surgeries?

2 poor unsatisfactory hair transplants performed in the UK.

 

Based on vast research and meeting patients, I travelled to see Dr Feller in New York to get repaired.

I'll see what he thinks when I go back. There's still some laxity back there so hopefully another 2,000 + maybe a bit of FUE should I ever need it.

Man, it really is turning out great. Having seen you in person, it really blows my mind. Looking forward to continued updates.

 

You seemed like quite a confident guy when I met you, but if you don't mind me asking, has this changed you socially at all?

 

Looks great, and the scar looking really good.

All I will say is you don't realise how much hairloss consumes your life until you get your hair back. It's such a relief.

 

I cut my hair too short (I knew I should have got it professionally done!). Anyway, the scar is just about visible at grade 3, depending on the lighting. At least it is a good test and I know not to go below a 4 next time.

Is that your head shaven pre-op or were you that bald pre-op? If the latter, the transformation has been excellent!

 

The front area was shaved but really didnt have much left.

Isn't that what propels us all to do it in the first place? The money spent on meds and other products trying to halt its progress; the inordinate amount of time it takes trying to conceal your hair loss or style your hair to minimize it until you just give up and throw on a hat?

 

Right now I totally get the consuming part. What I can't imagine yet is the relief you describe. Looking forward to it.

Matt, wow. So happy for you. I remember our conversations in private messaging when you were getting ready for this, and comparing our konior consultation experiences. And now you're all done, and had a successful procedure, with amazing results. Wish I pulled the trigger at the same time so we could both be celebrating.

 

Can you break down the cost for everything?

I was quoted a price which didn't really break down the 'per graft' rate. Anyway, it is best for anyone considering the Doc to send him your photos for evaluation and then calling the office for the charge.

 

With transatlantic flights and accomodation it was well over $20,000, but bear in mind I went at an expensive time of the year (summer).

HOLY SHIT. Mine were about $8,300 and $7,000 total respectively, with flights, transportation, etc. But considering I only got about 3,300 or so grafts total, the cost of all the extra grafts in your case actually makes it roughly even out I guess... It just seems like so much to drop at once.

I could be wrong, but it seems Dr. Konior offers a flat rate - whether you have 3,000 or 4,000 grafts. You are paying for his time, in my opinion, and he pretty much does it all - from harvesting the grafts to placing them. You paid $15,300 for 3,300 grafts, Matt paid $16,500 for 4,320 grafts. He came from across the pond for his procedure, so naturally that's going to add significantly to the overall cost.

Yeah I believe the clinic does a per-day flat rate rather than doing per graft charging.

It's worth it though with Dr. K, he's there every step of the way with personalized service to help patients achieve their goals.

 

Matt, waiting to see your results on their HP best of best or maybe Dr. K's Youtube site !

You've come a long way since you removed your cap two weeks post-op and allowed me to inspect the work. TIme flies. Congrats. Only going to thicken up from here on out.
