I opted to have the surgery in Malaga, Spain as it was slightly cheaper and a few days in the sun seemed rather appealing. I was due to have 2,500 grafts but after sticking religiously to my scalp elasticity exercises, they were able to extract 2,800 grafts which I was thrilled with. I had a very warm reception from the team, especially Lisa Collins (you've probably been dealing with her if you have been in contact with Vinci already) and the surgeon was fantastic.
The only part of my head that was shaved was the donor area, however once the strip is removed and stitched up there is no shaved area detectable and already (1 day post-op) the stitches are undetectable.
Hope this helps and if you need anything else give me a shout
