Dear all,

My name is Adam. I work out of Dr Arshad's clinic in Leeds/Dewsbury (West Yorkshire) UK.

Lee recorded his journey on this forum - thread:

In addition to the above I have detailed the surgical information and pictures, as well as a video with the result comb through at 12 months. Should you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me. Thank you.


Lee who started losing his hair in his mid 20's.

By his early 30's the frontal zone had pretty much gone with some generalised diffuse thinning in the vertex and crown.

Lee's concern was that he always had very fine and light coloured hair.

This he felt posed an issue in terms of getting the coverage required.

Dr Arshad measured the hair density in the parietal and occipital zones as well as measuring the hair calibre in the various regions of the safe donor zone. Through careful donor area assessment and surgical planning Dr Arshad felt coverage could be achieved. Dr Arshad emphasised to Lee that an important aspect of any hair restoration journey is reducing the insult of DHT on the susceptible hairs through DHT blockers.

This is a great result considering the number of grafts used and the fine caliber of his hair. The new hairline has defined his face giving a fresher younger look that suits him well.
