    Dr Feller Offered Me A Free Fue Surgery! Extreme generosity from Dr Feller...life ch

    Hi to everyone that already knows my story so far with my HT transformation journey (4 in total)....and those of you that dont know my story. Its been quite a journey of rocky times... but the road is now a brighter and much happier one

    I have been posting my progress ever since the very 1st meeting with Dr Feller around 3 years ago when he made a remarkable change in my life by repairing an appalling UK hair transplant (performed by NOBEL HAIR CLINIC UK) this was back when I was 23 years old (I'm now 37) and totally destroyed my self confidence through the whole of my 20's and part of my 30's. I completely stopped seeing my mates and just hid under a hat when ever I left the house. I also hate wearing caps/hats as they are not the image I want to portray (chav image) but I had no choice after the Noble Clinic completely butchered me, leaving me with terrible donor scarring/ recipient scar tissue and totally unnatural groups of 5 and 6 plugs in the front hairline spaced way to far apart!

    I have been quiet for a few months as I felt I needed to get my life together... I was starting to do things and go out a lot more than before... so I havent posted for a while.. and just been 'finding myself again'.

    Well... from the time I had a terrible UK HT 10+ years ago, I lost all contact with friends and stopped wanting to go out and socialise as I felt a freak show and very depressed!! (It really is an emotional thing for me to even think about this as I write this right now as I dont say depressed lightly!!! I was at an all time low taking anti-depressents).

    Since then Dr Feller and his super techs! had filled and packed in around 5000 grafts into my front 3rd to give me a result better than I could ever have dreamed of having ever again in my life!!! (I truly can not say this enough!! This has truly changed my life to the extent that I have even been dating a lovely girl which wouldn't have even of been ANY HOPE of doing this without my new found confidence with knowing that I look 'normal!!' and no longer like a freak show!!

    So... here is something I can not even believe has occurred to me over the last few days!!!

    I havent been to NYC for longer than few days at a time before just enough to have HT's with Feller Medical (and always on my own). I wanted to go back and see the sights and even more with someone to share the experience of the awesome sights in NYC!!

    I had already told my girlfriend that I have had my HT's there and visted Manhatten (she said from the very start it has never bothered her one bit as she thinks it looks really good and would never know unless I had told her) and I wanted to visit Dr Feller to show him how far I have come along since he last saw me (exactly 2 years ago). As I know how pleased I am....and wanted him to see it for himself.

    A few days before I was due to leave NYC I dropped in to see Dr Feller and one of the 1st things he told me was 'I already knew you would look this good!' and 'a world apart from before' he had already expected to see me looking a world apart from the damaged guy that walked in that very 1st time with unnatural thick black twisty whirly plugs (by Noble Clinic UK!!!!) This was so nice to hear that he was just as pleased as I was!!

    I think it was knowing how sad I was before in my life to transform me to how I am today is quite something special (I was truly rock bottom it was just pure luck from searching the Internet and meeting SPEX that my life changed completely!!!! ). I had worn a cap on my head for well over 10 years since the Noble UK work... and I was reaching breaking point if I am being honest!

    Some months ago I just briefly mentioned about feeling some hair greed and would like a slightly fuller hairline as the Noble work was still very slightly evident in the direct hairline. This was most likely hard to detect by onlookers unless you are aware of them and it being my head....I was still aware a few of them were still just making the difference from being a natural hairline for me that I can no longer have an concerns about... like I said....in all honesty.... it was hair greed!! and I didn't like having ANY reminder of them as it was a really bad time for me to live with those for a very long time.

    I mentioned to Dr Feller how he has transformed not only my hairline but my life!! which is pretty amazing to me to even be writing this now.....and believing that I have been given another chance to really GO FOR the things I want in LIFE NOW!! I am so much more positive about my future!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (sorry for all those !!!! but they were needed and truly meant).

    After a chat and Dr Feller wanting to take some pics... he said he wasn't entirely happy that the hairline as there was still some NOBEL micro grafts evident at the very front. He showed me there was still a few groups/plugs that had re-shown themselves and he really wanted to FIX them up once and for all!! I am not a rich guy so had no chance of paying for a final session to finish off the hairline to the ultimate result....so I was thinking 'OK, I will have to save up for a few years and come back again'. The trip to NYC was a gift from my girlfriend... as I kept telling her how awesome it was and wanted her to see it with me, we both had time off so seemed the perfect opportunity to go back.

    Sorry this is becoming a long write up! I am trying to say everything I am thinking of and its been a while :unsure: ....without stretching this out too long!! as the next thing that happened whilst visiting Dr Feller was something that I totally unexpected!

    He knew my financial situation was not one that I could afford to pay for a further final session to finish off my hairline by 'filling in between the Noble work' to completely leave them undetectable. He then asked when I was going to be flying back home. I had 2 days left of my trip so he asked if I would be able to come in the following morning and he would be willing to do a FUE session FREE OF CHARGE!!! on my hairline to resolve any of those issues remaining!!!! I couldn't even believe I was being offered this kind of generosity/support/help/kindness from the very best HT doc in the field!! Dr Feller must be the most caring guy I have ever met! I have to say I was shocked to have such an offer of this kind and was not expecting this what so ever! I was/am just so grateful I can not even start to tell you how grateful I am. I would never have been able to afford this is all truthfulness.

    So, to bring my fellow hair loss guys up to date, I have only just got back home a few hours ago... I had a few hours sleep as I was just so tired after the flight. It went so well... I was out by 2.30pm yesterday and just seemed to fly past... I am now back in the waiting game again.. I am kind of getting used to this by now! lol.

    Dr Feller and all his super team of techs by using FUE have placed some new finer/softer hairs between the thicker grafts in my hairline to leave a softer natural result. I am not sure of the graft count, but the fronts were all singles as you would expect and 2's going further back (approx 1" back into the front triangles) I would hazard a guess of approx 800? FUE grafts. The left side needed more than the right and Dr F removed some remaining Nobel nasties! to improve things further still. This is my 1st FUE so the experience was quite different from the strip procedures before hand... I felt very comfortable the whole time... at times I thought I was laying back on my hotel bed and started to fall asleep! all the sight seeing the previous days had really worn me out too!

    I am still really quite tired and this hasnt fully sunken in yet! havent eaten anything yet so I will post up more soon as things progress... and some pics in due time.. I know these are what people want to see... in total this is my 3rd Dr Feller HT and each time my life just improves beyond words.

    Thank you to everyone that has supported me along my very long journey and tuff road... this is really quite an amazing situation and I know this is a unique situation I am in and have been offered.... and I just once again want to say how incredibly grateful I am!! MANY THANKS DR FELLER ALL YOUR SUPER STAFF AND SPEX that have changed my life beyond words.

    Cheers everyone for all your support I hope this helps to show that anyone in a similar situation can be helped!! you can get your life back on track... I just want you to know... by finding these forums... you have possibly made the best discovery of your life just by finding these forums just like I did... it was just pure luck for me as a last grasp for some kind of hope!! but it was the luckiest thing I ever did for sure.

    PLEASE TAKE NOTE: NEVER HAVE A HT IN THE UK!!!!!! Travel!! Stop thinking UK Clinic are anywhere near the Level of USA/Canada HT procedures. This is my own opinion from my own experience.

    Take care guys....I'll post some updates regularly...to show how things are going... hang in there everyone... I know this is a unique situation.. and will complete a very long Roller Coaster journey for me now

    Okay, I have had some food and a bath.... and given my hair its first wash.. and rinsed the recipient area and soaped up the donor area to clean it up.. here are some pics.. less of my talking more visual stuff for you to see here...

    Some pics where I started... before Dr F helped repair the situ...

    Nobel Clinic Hair Transplant pics.. I lived with it like this for over 10 years..











    These were taken as soon as I got back to my hotel... approx 30 mins after my surgery... (before wash/clean up the next day) please note: all the hair you can still see at the front is HT hair that was not trimmed for the surgery and left long...














    This is the day after my surgery... 1st wash tonight about 1 hr ago... looking cleaner now..

      Front sides filled.. giving a more natural hairline and fuller triangles.. very zoomed in...









      Covering the FUE with the existing hair.... I think in 1 - 2 months I will have enough coverage to conseal the new surgery..






      The crown is holding up pretty well since I have been taking Fin.... just ordered abnother supply as my 1st order lasted over a year.. deffinitely worth taking if your considering surgery... meds I think I a must to hold into your native hair.. you cant beat your own hair rather than replacing what you have lost.






      My hair after 2 Feller Medical procedures... (before I had this lastest 3rd session)

      Incredible transformation!!






      I think pics speak a million words... so I have tried to use them to speak for me.. I think its clear to see why I am so surprised at my own transformation when you look at how bad I was at the start.. just awesome.. just to repeat myself again.. thanks for all the support everyone... I really needed it to get me here

                      When I heard your reply it made me realise that I am one of the lucky ones to be able to start leading a normal life again! I have stopped feeling sorry for myself now. I'm feeling really positive about the future... and looking forward to doing the things I missed out on for so long through my 20's.

                      I hope my results help other's to show that it is possible to get your hair back to a level that you can feel happy about yourself again. It can really get you down and it does take a lot of patience to get to the end of the road but is well worth it in the end!

                      Thanks for all the feedback.. good luck guys!

                          7 days post surgery... I always was a slow healer.. pleased I have the longer hair on top that now is pretty much able to cover the FU's.. but wont be looking closely for another few months.. just a quick idea for you to see how it looks after 1 week.. (a comb hasnt seen my hair so its straight out of bed look.. )

                            Thanks for the kind words Spex! My goal was to capture the essence of what I do on the radio and integrate that intimacy into the forum. I want our users to know that we are here to support them.
