Having qualified in 2000, he went on to pursue surgical training in West of Scotland, Deanery. His interest in hair restoration dates back to his medical school days, where he battled significant hair loss. Having found no viable alternatives to restore his hair, he persisted with propecia and minoxidil, until better options became available. After obtaining his qualifications, he pursued further training in hair restoration surgery.
Having had first hand experience of hair restoration surgery, both as a surgeon and as a patient himself, he began to understand the limitations of both FUE and strip surgery (FUT).
Following years of hard work and under the guidance of some great thinkers, he pioneered the Third generation FUE.
Hair transplant surgery is a very surgeon-dependent surgery and it is of paramount importance to pick the right surgeon. It is also a unique surgery because we have to deal with a very limited number of hair follicles to give an illusion of more hair.
Until technology improves, whereby cloning of hair becomes mainstream, the surgeon has to take extreme care in preserving the donor hair. On top of this, hair loss is progressive and in most instances, poorly planned surgery can cause more harm than good, which I have personally experienced.
There are a lot of options available to address hair loss and surgery is just one of them. Hence, it is advisable that prospective clients insist on meeting the surgeon performing the surgery and address all available options before undergoing surgery.
As a team what we have understood over past 12 years is the fact that FUE hair restoration surgery is more art than science. Whilst the emphasis during our earlier years was on speed and efficiency, now we focus more on attention to detail and creating near perfect outcomes where possible. We are also proud to proclaim that our yield rates on average are better than 80% which is one of the highest in the industry and our transection rates are one of the lowest, hence providing exceptional value for money for our clients.
Also, what we have noticed is that by placing more emphasis on creating age specific and face specific hairlines and density the satisfaction index among our clients has increased significantly and despite clients having very high expectations, we have consistently been able to better our clients expectations.
More than 40% of our work is repair and correction work and we appreciate the fact that clients not only want a decent head of hair, they also appreciate the fact that the hair looks and feels natural with natural angles and hardly evidence of any work being undertaken. To that end we believe hair restoration surgery is a bit like fine watch making. One could possibly assemble a watch to read time or one can invest time, expertise and attention to detail needed to create a masterpiece that our clients can enjoy for a very long time.
