Good afternoon all,

I have been an avid reader here in the past as a worried man, losing ones hair, this pre my HT six months I am now in the fortunate position of having had such a successful DHI (essentially an FUE) transplant via DHI Global in London (http://dhiglobal.com/) I want to see if I can assist anyone else thinking of under going this procedure…

Back story:
Ok so my hair had been getting me down for about five years, more and more receding and the crown all-bar gone!

I did A LOT of research on clinics and heard good and bad from abut them all, travel wasn't an option, I was certain I could find THE right result at home in the UK.

So after many meets with various doctors in Harley Street and surrounding roads I met with Anita at DHI Global in London and was immediately put at ease and after her showing me endorsements from celebrity and non celebrity clients, I felt that DHI was the way to go for me, so at the end of October (worryingly close to Halloween) I booked myself in for a 1-day Mega session for a DHI - Direct Hair Implantation.

And what a choice I made!
I was made to feel like royalty when I arrived all be it admittedly for a tall and big man I was ridiculously nervous, but I (hopefully) didn't let that show... My nerves soon vanished when I was properly talked through the procedure and introduced to Medical Director and the man to do my procedure - Dr George.


The Procedure:
So four hours of lying on my front in the 'massage position' as I like to call it where I dropped off twice, where my hairs on the donor area were extracted was followed by a nice lunch and read of the papers, then it was 3-4 hours of implanting them. Job done and pain free... I even went to the theatre afterwards and had a few brandies (against the advice of Dr George) but I was on cloud 9, I could instantly see a hairline for the first time in YEARS!

Post surgery:
I was so proud to have the hairline I was given immediately after the treatment and that (as advised) fell away after about four weeks. All the transplanted hairs had come out by week 7.

I kept my hair at a level 0.4, from then on and come month four a rapid growth happened!!!
Day by day more hair was filling in it was then when I stopped shaving my head.

I am now coming up to 6 months post surgery and I would have taken this brilliant result as the final result BUT am left to believe I have another year of growth and filling out to come. Wonderful!

Absolutely delighted and I am so lad I decided to go with DHI Global!!

Pictures before, during and NOW attached and if anyone has ANY questions, ask them here, I shall be monitoring the thread.

Thanks
Ben

Hello mate,

I've seen your videos on YouTube and also this post on the forum. I've been for my diagnosis appointment (I spoke to Anita) but I'm still quite apprehensive.

I've been quoted a price, but that's only for the procedure. Does that include the products you showed in your videos? (NaCL, shampoo, lotions)
I was recommended to attend follow-up appointments. Did you go as well? Was there a cost associated to it?
They also mentioned PRP treatment to speed up the healing process and thicken existing hair. Did you opt for that too?

Hope to hear from you soon

Hi AkiraSan,

Firstly Anita is brilliant, really knows her stuff and every word she said t me in my initial consultations came true. In fact she undersold just how good the results would be at DHI.

Yes the cost included the specialised DHI Shampoo and the spray.
I have been to all follow up appointments, well worth it and yes all free.

I believe the PRP really helped me along and I would strongly recommend getting at least 3 of these done!

If I can help anymore do not hesitate to contact me!

Hi Ben,

Thank you so much for replying. I was three days away from getting the DHI done when I got your reply!

So.. This is week 8. My gosh, it's gone so quickly. I have to admit the first two/three weeks were quite challenging with the sensitivity in both donor and recipient area. It's almost back to normal now though.

In terms of progress, well, I was expecting all the small hairs from the transplanted follicles to fall off; but not all have..! Some have properly grown and I'm getting a real frame there. I've grown the rest of my hair so it covers the temple areas where I had it done. It's gone a bit spiky and poking through my existing hair, haha!

I also got a PRP on the day and my next one is due soon. I feel like it's contributed massively to how well it's going so far!

Im very happy I went through with it. Can't believe How happy I was when I came home, just to observe a new hairline, amazing! I probably won't get it done a second time, even if the rest of my hair falls off lol

Thanks for your reply and the 7 month photo update - your result looks amazing already!!

Cheers
Phil
