Day 14:
I set myself a little ‘extension’ to the rules of sleeping upright, wearing a cap etc. so sleeping properly tonight is going to be bliss..!

I’ve still got quite a bit of scabbing unfortunately, also realised the true impact of the donor site when these pictures were taken, hopefully it all looks normal though?

No problems at all, if you have anymore questions fire away I will try and help!

It’s definitely worth getting in touch with the clinic for a video consultation, they were not pushy at all just provide you with information and their opinion on your hair (as good as they can on FaceTime!).
It is good to know that. I was previously getting prepared to go abroad for my treatment but with the COVID situation I just don’t feel like that is a sensible thing to do right now. Plus, as with many others right now, I want to make use of this lockdown/subdued time for recovery.

Folks like yourself sharing your story (and this forum in general) have made such a big difference in my research; I wish I came across this site months ago!

You don’t have to answer this if you would rather not, but were you also charged the £3 per graft that others have quoted on this forum?

£3 per graft for me too, it’s obviously more expensive that going abroad but I’m glad I’ve done it in the UK, the aftercare has been brilliant so far.

We think much alike. I'm getting my HT next week at The Hair Dr and just cleared most of my work schedule with clients over the next 3 months, which means hardly anyone will see me whileI look like crap!

The forum helped me greatly in deciding against Turkey and then booking in with The Hair Dr. It's one thing for a clinic to have before/after photos on instagram, but real people posting their experiences with a clinic and their full timeline of recovery and growth is just magnificent.

The Hair Dr. is always £3 per graft as a flat price from what I understand. I'm getting 4500 grafts and it's £3/graft also.

Oh absolutely, it’s the real-life feedback and progress which gives assurance, not carefully selective photos uploaded by the clinic!

I called the Hair Dr earlier this week and they also said £3...I wonder if they are open for negotiation. As a comparison, Dr Edward Ball (who seems to be another legend repeatedly mentioned on this forum) charges £5 per graft. The Hair Dr seems to be the most ‘bang for your buck’.


@HTL33 - thanks for sharing; especially the point about aftercare - something that I have overlooked before due to being attracted abroad on cheaper costs

I definitely wouldn't try and negotiate prices with such a procedure. If any potential client of mine tries to bring my price down I tend to ignore them beyond that.

I wouldn’t want to do this aggressively...I suppose it depends on how the consultation forms my opinion. Judging from this forum, I should be in for a good experience!

To me it felt like the price wasn’t negotiable, but to be honest £3 per graft seemed decent for UK pricing from what I’d seen and researched elsewhere.

Ultimately 6-12 months down the line if the results are there I won’t think about the £7,500 I paid :) hopefully the same for all you guys!!!

Im with you on this. To be confident when I go out in public and not even have to style my hair to cover up bald patches is worth every penny. Not once have I regretted the cost of my HT and I was going to go to Belgium before I discovered The Hair Dr which would have saved me £4K. Results and after care over cost is what matters to me most.

Hope you got a good nights sleep, it’s always nice to relax and be worry free.
Your scabbing will be gone soon. Give your hair a soak for 5 minutes, massage the scalp and just wash off normally in the shower.
Your donor looks ok, it’ll look thin until it fuller recovers and any shock loss grows back.

Definitely Baldingman23, the feeling I hope I will have of not having to worry about a bit of wind or rain is going to be amazing!

Thanks BM, your comments are reassuring! Safe to say my sleep pattern is so much better post travel pillow but needs must at the time I guess.

Reading the last few responses makes me agree.

I can’t stress how much this forum has helped me in my research and knowledge of this procedure. The community here is fantastic *throwing my drink in the air right now for a ‘cheers’!*

Week 3 Update:
So I am 21 days in and shedding has well and truly started, lots of hairs in the sink when doing the daily wash over the past week or so. Nearly all scabs are gone now I’d say.

I am slightly nervous about shock loss, as my hair looks thinner than I thought in places near my implants, maybe I’m just overanalysing... Thoughts on that would be greatly appreciated!
