Hello my name is Simon Cowan. A few years ago, I started losing my hair and like many people this was a huge concern for me which eventually turned into an obsession. As i'm an actor and in the public eye a lot, I felt my future career prospects could be affected.
Following a great deal of thought, I decided to visit Harley Street Hair Transplant Clinics. I had a consultation with the doctor who told me I was a great candidate for the FUE hair transplant procedure which I had a few weeks after. Since then I’d go as far as to say they’ve changed my life.
In addition to the hair transplant, doctor Nadir, my surgeon, prescribed me Finasteride and Minoxidil to prevent any existing hair loss and enhance the newly transplanted hairs.
I would advise anyone who is concerned about hair loss to do their research carefully, as I did, before proceeding with treatment. You should also be totally confident that your surgical team have the right credentials to ensure a good result like I did at Harley Street.Simon Cowan, 2000 FUE Grafts
I started losing my hair in my mid 20s. I noticed that I was losing hair first after coming out of the shower and seeing my wet hair in the mirror making it look very thin. Although it was difficult for others to notice it due to the length i kept it at, I was always very conscious about it. As my hair loss continued, I started wearing hats more often to cover it up, which made things very difficult for me as I knew I was trying to "cover up" something.
My decision to contact Harley Street Healthcare came after my partner told me frankly that I was going bald. I really wanted my hair back, and I felt that this was the turning point.
I had a consultation and the procedure followed soon after. The actual procedure itself was actually quite relaxing. Initially I was worried about it being painful however the team at Harley Street kept me really relaxed, I had toilet breaks as well as a gourmet lunch half way through. I'm really thankful to the experienced team at Harley Street.
My hair line is completely full now, I've been able to dye it all sorts of different colors without having to worry about it falling out. The best thing about my hair is that I can now run my hands through my own hair without the fear of it falling out.
I just wish i'd had the procedure 10 years earlier.David Graham, 3500 FUT Grafts
Hair loss has been a very emotional thing for me. Neither of my parents lost their hair and all of my siblings were fine - I really didn't understand why I was losing mine. The GP advised me it could be due to a thyroid problem or stress, however when I came to Harley Street Healthcare they ran a few tests and confirmed that my thyroid was fine as well as everything else in my blood tests. I decided to take the plunge on a hair transplant to get back the hair I had lost.
The procedure itself lasted 6 hours, I was given lunch by the friendly team and was able to have as many breaks as I needed throughout the day. The doctor gave me a strong dose of anesthetic as I was particularly concerned about pain, the anesthesia really helped and I felt very little discomfort throughout. To my surprise it actually turned out to be quite a pleasant experience.
Following the procedure I took a two week holiday to return to work thereafter. My work colleagues didn't notice a thing as I had cut my hair very short. In the first month a lot of the hair fell out - this didn't worry me as I was told about this during my consultation before the procedure.
7 Months on and my results are great. I have a full head of hair which i'm very pleased about, my barber can't even tell I've had a procedure. I would like to thank the team at Harley St Healthcare particularly Dr Matee for his amazing patient bedside manner.Waleed Basayouni, 1500 FUE Grafts
As an international business owner a lot of my time is consumed flying to different parts of the world. I never thought about getting a hair transplant until I did a google search which landed me on Harley St Healthcare's website. I called the clinic during a business trip to the UK and was told that I could have the consultation on the same day as my phone call. At my consultation I was informed that I could get my hair transplant done the next week. This was all very exciting and I rescheduled my trip back to China for another week, so I could get my hair transplant and return home with a full head of hair to surprise my family.
The procedure was very relaxing, I was the only patient that day which made me feel like a VIP. I have to commend the team for taking such good care of me, I was given a very nice meal during the procedure which was prepared by the team adding more pleasure to my experience.
On my return home, the scabs had fallen off and my new hair started to grow.I had cut all of my hair fairly short following the procedure and when I arrived home my wife and children had all thought my hair started to grow back. After a few months my results looked amazing and I looked so much younger with thick black hair - it's amazing how just having hair can take years off your age.
I would like to thank the team once again for all of their efforts with me.Dong Chang, 3000 FUT Grafts
