Marc's Hair Transplant Story

Diary of a Lancashire mans hair transplant journey

The FUE / FUT Combo Hair Transplant

In December Marc gifted himself an early Christmas present when he chose Dr. Ismail for his mega 4768 graft (over 11 thousand hairs) hair transplant. 

After first contacting Matthew at Surgery Group in May 2020, he like many others took his time in considering a life changing hair loss treatment and finally took the plunge in early December.

At a time in life when many men come to notice hair loss is increasing, 36 year old Marc had started to research his options and the surgical options available to restore his hairline. Marc was faced with a quandary – FUT or FUE. With information and advice from Matthew and Dr. Ish Marc was still undecided which method to go for.  Then his patient coordinator Matthew and Dr. Ish proposed a solution for Marc that meant his hair loss could be altered in one procedure.

 A brief explanation of the two hair transplant options follows…

With FUT a strip of skin (and obviously hair) is taken from the back of the head. Although it is still thought, by some to offer better graft yield the resulting linear scar means patients opting for FUT are not able to shave the donor area below a grade 2.

And FUE, the contemporary method of hair restoration. The process involves individual follicle extraction and a barely noticeable dotting on the donor area after the healing period. 

So back to Marc and the rarest option of treatments for hair loss that we have ever offered or even known of –  The Combo – you get a bigger yield of harvest the mac possible hair grafts in one procedure all completed in one day 10 hours).

Crown Hair Transplant

In January 2022 Marc was back in the chair with Dr Ahmad and the team. This time we harvested around 1100 grafts from the permanent zone and placed them in the crown to finish things off and achieve full coverage of the balding areas. The patient journey has been longer than usual but we are confident that the results will speak for themselves.

Fantastic company!!

Superb service from Surgery Group, from start to finish. To be able to speak directly to the owner (Matthew – great guy) then to the surgeon himself was so refreshing, after speaking to the salesmen of other (more expensive!) companies. I had two transplants with these guys and the aftercare from Jake and Matthew was second to none. The surgery itself was carried out expertly by Dr Ahmed and his wonderful staff who couldn’t do enough for me (they even bought me lunch!) If you’re thinking about a hair transplant, do not hesitate to go with Surgery Group!

Marc's SMP Results

“Today I went to have my FUT scar disguised by a process known as scalp micro pigmentation (SMP). They basically colour in your scar with a tattoo! Fantastic work by @replikhair who I can’t recommend enough.”

It's been three weeks since I had my hair transplant and all I can say is thank you! The whole process has been fantastic, thanks to Surgery Group. I was hesitant at first, due to the price, it just seemed too good to be true, but they haven't let me down. Mathew is such a great guy. I have bombarded him with questions and he has never failed to answer them. I would also like to mention the great job that Dr Ismail, Kendra and Eva did. They made the whole day feel a breeze!

I was a little worried at first due to the price I was quoted from the surgery group was half the price of any other in the uk. Well I’m all done now and they did what they said for the price they said they would, so I’m very happy. Mathew is very very helpful even over the Christmas period when he should of been concentrating on his own family. I would recommend them to everyone.

I can not fault the Surgery Group at all through the whole process so far. I am 3 days after my op and I’m looking forward to seeing the results. On the day of the surgery Dr Ismail and his team were very honest and informative about what was going to happen. Overall a really professional procedure in which I felt safe, secure and cared for at all times.
