Six years ago, when Chris Davies was 18, a friend of his jokingly pointed out that his hair was thinning. Whilst he initially laughed off the comment, like many of us would have, he took it to heart and decided to do something about it.
A Quick Fix
Chris’ hair loss became more and more obvious over time and he panicked that he would be bald within two years. He admitted to wanting a “quick fix” to make the problem go away and impulsively booked a hair transplant he found after a quick Google search, costing him £2,000. Unfortunately the procedure that was meant to show results within months didn’t provide any change.
Two years later he tried again and paid another £2,500 and once again saw no improvement. Instead of new hair growth he was left with puncture scars on the back of his head from the procedure. Chris notes that this was the worst part of his hair loss journey, not only had he lost all hope of getting his hair back, but he was also feeling incredibly secure.
A Well-Researched Solution
Three years after this Chris began doing proper research into reliable and professional hair regrowth procedures. He sought help from hair loss mentor Spencer Stevenson, who he contacted through website SpexHair, a site that offers support and advice for men considering hair loss treatments, and he helped him get the right solution.
6 years from his initial procedure and £6,000 later, Chris finally has a head of hair he can be proud of. Whilst his story ended positively, there is a lesson to be learnt for everyone considering hair loss treatments.
Here are the three key factors that are integral to obtaining the best results from hair transplant surgery:
1. Take your time to find an experienced hair restoration surgeon
These procedures are a form of surgery, therefore you want to be in the hands of an experienced and skilled surgeon to get the best results.
2. Find out the experience your prospective surgeon has at performing hair restoration surgery
A fully qualified surgeon should be more than happy to share their experience and the number of procedures they have performed.
3. The surgery should provide you with a daily medical treatment program to ensure optimum hair stabilisation
This usually includes the likes of topical solutions to maintain a healthy hairline and ensuring a healthy environment for your hair follicles to heal and grow.
