"Having flirted with the idea of a hair transplant for a number of years, I mentioned it in passing to a work colleague some months ago. She excitedly explained that a male friend had undergone the treatment with Capital Hair Restoration, and that he had experienced some really good results.
Intringued, I made contact with this guy, and had a look at his before and after pictures. The transformation was amazing. He told me to contact Darryl at his Harley Street office and make enquiries, which I did. He was very enthusiastic about this company and treatment option in Istanbul.
Having met Darryl, I felt instantly reassured that he was careful to manage your expectations, and was honest about what could be acheived. We agreed on an FUE treatment to restore my hairline and fill in the bald areas on my crown and forehead. He recommended the Istanbul option as i needed a large number of grafts, and it was a cheaper option for someone on a Civil Serveants budget - like me!
So, a few weeks later, I met Darryl at the airport, and one short comfortable flight later, we were checking into a modern and very pleasant hotel, a short distance from the hospital. The price included the full package; flights, visas, transfers, food, treatment, medication - everything. Having everything taken care of, and Darryl present to make sure things went smoothly completely took the stress out of travelling abroad for surgery.
The next morning I was transported to a spotless, modern Hospital for the procedure. The staff were really pleasant and proffesional, and having seen the Surgeon and agreed my new hairline, the procedure started. The worst part of it all was having the anesthetic injections to numb the scalp and the back of my head. However, this was uncomfortable rather than painful, and all over in a minute or two. During the extraction and transplantation, I was just aware of my head being pulled about slightly and I felt no pain at all. In fact, I fell asleep for about two hours, and work myself up snoring, much to everyones amusement.
After dinner that evening, I went to bed and we flew home the next day. After the procedure my head felt a little sore, but a week down the line, everything seems to be healing nicely. I am over the moon with my new hairline; it already looks great and I have to do a double-take every time I see my reflection. I'm now wishing away the months to see how it looks when my transplanted hair grows in.
I could not recommend Darryl and Capital Hair Restoration highly enough. I was nervous about travelling abroad for such a procedure, but that was completely unnecessary. The service and treatment I received was excellent, and having Darryl there with you really helps to alleviate any concerns you may have. So, if like me, you have been toying with getting your hair back, just go for it. You won't regret it.
