    Default Choosing which surgeon to go for in the UK

    Hi there, Iím recently 41 and considering a transplant and I have no idea where to start researching. Iíve read a load of horror stories in Facebook groups and varying reviews, so itís making research really difficult.

    Iíve got really thick hair around the back and sides but thinning on top at a rate of knots.

    Also Iíve read various reports of having to take propecia after surgery, is this a standard thing?

    Any help or pointers on where to do research for UK based surgery would be great. Or if you have been through it, pls share you stories!

    Hi David,

    You could start by ploughing through the many patient reviews on this site and other hair transplant forums.

    You'll soon get a feel for what to expect.

    I would also try to contact and if possible meet/speak with other patients of the clinics you narrow down as maybe being suited to you.

    It is standard practice with many Docs to prescribe Propecia (1mg Finsteride) to patients post (and in some cases pre) surgery.

    It does depend on whether you have native hair that is worth saving, in your brief description this does sound like the case. The Finasteride will slow down any future balding therefore delaying the need for a further transplant.

    I actually have been taking it for 5 years and my hair is still holding strong following my own surgery. I actually only take it 3 days a week and have a couple of months off a year.

    On a side note there are many UK guys who have traveled abroad, many for the first time, to acclaimed doctors worldwide and have had fantastic experiences.

    If you consider that I can put you through to a few ex patients in the UK.

    So firstly do your research, you'll find loads of patient stories online.

    You could even start with my very own patient review below.

    Feel free to contact me direct if you need any other help or guidance.

    I've had a number of surgeries but only 1 in the UK, my last one which was at the Harley St Hair Clinic in The Uk. If you see my follow up video it explains in brief the importance of research. Do not let travel restrict you ( appreciate current climate travelling is limited ) as part of the decision making process boils down to extensive refresh and finding the right surgeon for you and YOUR needs and goals.
