I had my hair transplant surgery at Vera Clinic. After my FUE procedure in May 2022, which involved around 2000 grafts, I eagerly awaited the results. At 41 years old and with a Norwood 3-4 hair loss pattern, I was hopeful for a positive outcome.
Initially, everything seemed to be going smoothly, and I was confident in my decision. I refrained from using any hair loss medications, except for topical 5% minoxidil from month 2 onwards. However, around the 4-month mark, I started noticing areas on my mid-scalp and front hairline showing no growth. I remained optimistic, considering it was still early in the recovery process.
As months passed, my concerns grew as progress remained stagnant. By the 8-month mark, it became evident that a significant number of grafts had not taken as expected. Worried and unsure, I decided to visit my surgeon to discuss the situation. He was equally surprised by the lack of growth and offered a free second procedure. I appreciate the gesture but am contemplating my options.
Despite the challenges, I don’t want to discredit Vera Clinic’s efforts. Their team has been supportive throughout, and their willingness to address my concerns is commendable. I will take some time before making a final decision and hope for a successful outcome.
