Nearly 3 years ago, when I was easily a Norwood 6, I remember deciding that an FUT hair transplant was the only way to fix my hair loss problem once and for all.
Strangely enough, after all my research on HOW to fix the problem, I didn't even stop to think about WHO would do the procedure or how it would look. I was desperate & figured some hair had to be better than what I had.
I'm saying this because around the same time Dr Jennifer Martinick did my hair transplant, a guy that I met later on had gotten a transplant done by another surgeon, one that I was originally planning to go to.
Having just moved to Sydney, I actually went to Dr Martinicks clinic by mistake and I'm very glad I did. The guy I'm talking about ended up sueing the surgeon that did his hair transplant and Dr Martinick was the one that had to fix it up - this is how I met him. If I had gone to the same clinic as my friend, I wouldn't have been so lucky, because I don't have as much donor hair available.
The moral of the story? Hair transplants are permanent and the hair that can be transplanted is limited - so pick your surgeon carefully!
Today I'm a Norwood 2, maybe 3 at a push. Not even my two best friends in Perth or my Mum can tell that I've had a hair transplant. Not a day goes by that I'm not thankful to Dr Jennifer Martinick for her skill, expertise and total commitment to what she specialises in.
