Today, I underwent my hair transplant. I had typical male pattern baldness developing on the crown and a receding hairline, particularly on one side. I was nervous about committing, but the time felt right and I pulled the trigger at 36. When I arrived for my consultation in Walsall, I was greeted by the receptionist, who made me feel welcome and at ease. The consultant was very informative and he answered all my questions. He has also been an ongoing help as my point of contact.
The surgery where I had the OP was in Dudley. At the surgery, I was welcomed by Dr Claudia and her team. The team described what would happen during the day and we hit it off. After a consultation of the hairline that was drawn on my head, which I agreed looked good, I got onto the operating table, which was an electronically lifted massage bed. All around the donor area, I first had anaesthetic injections, followed by some donor sample taken. Then anaesthetic in the other areas of baldness. Puncture marks were made and the follicles were extracted. I was given lunch and took time for a toilet break and then onto round two. The follicles were transplanted into the puncture marks and an additional anaesthetic was given were needed. I finished off with a round of plasma treatment, as I had heard that it can help the healing process and leave behind less of a scar.
The plasma treatment was not included in the hair transplant rate that I paid, but overall, both were good value. The team were helpful, friendly, reassuring and professional. I felt in good hands with the team and I'm glad I took the initiative to finally gi ahead with this. Now the aftercare is in my hands, but I have had all the medications, including antibiotics, a big list of instructions and a briefing from Dr Claudia. My follow-up is in a few months, so Im looking forward to seeing how it all turns out. A big thank you to the whole team of professionals at UK Hair Transplants.
