"I have been trying to manage my hair loss since 2006, so over 12 years now.
I guess I started to pay serious consideration towards having a hair transplant rather than just trying to manage my hair loss a couple of years ago.
I had 3 consultations with 3 different organisations over a period of 6 months.
I was doing my own research and trying to gather as much information as I could.
2 of the consultations were effectively sales people trying to sell the service.
One of them really didn’t know a lot about some of the technical questions I was asking.
To be fair to them, they would take note of my concerns, find out the answer and come back to me.
This really didn’t instill that much confidence in me.
The other organisation, again a sales person, ran through the basic consultation, outlined the cost in the UK but then moved onto the benefits of going to their fully qualified experts abroad, with flights included etc.
It just didn’t fill me with confidence, plus if something went wrong with my hair (post-op) I wanted to be able to go to the people that had performed the procedure within a short space of time to make sure that everything was ok or to resolve it if there was an issue."
