Adrian, 35 years old
Adrian was 34 years old when he had his hair transplant in Stockholm with us and now, a year after the procedure, he can feel satisfied with his final result. But it’s been a long road.
The healing process was difficult for him appearance-wise and it took a long time for Adrian’s hair to start growing after the hair transplant. He felt very anxious about the outcome, even though he knew it takes time for the hair to start growing again.
– I noticed quite early that my hairline started to creep upwards. I remember starting Rogainewhen I was still living at home, so my hair loss has been going on for many years. At the time, it seemed like a big deal to do a hair transplant. This was also quite a long time ago, before the FUE method,” says Adrian.
Adrian’s hair loss went on for 20 years
Adrian’s hair loss, like most people with hereditary hair loss, went on for many years. The hair gradually thinned for 20 years before Adrian had enough and felt it was time to do something about it. Rogaine had not produced the results he wanted and he had only used it occasionally.
Adrian lived near our clinic in Stockholm and booked a consultation to meet our hair specialist, Maggie Stolt.
– I’m the kind of person who thinks plastic surgery is a big deal. I’ve never done anything like this before so for me this was a big deal and I was very nervous. But I thought I could at least go for a consultation. At the consultation, Maggie informed me that I might only need to do 1,500 grafts. Suddenly it didn’t feel like such a big deal. I just felt like I was fixing the hairline a bit,” says Adrian.
