Successful hair transplant experiences
I met Matt for my consultation and I was put at ease immediately, not only was he approachable and friendly he was extremely knowledgable about the hair loss process, the different types of preventive measures (from prescribed drugs to different types of transplants), and after examining my own situation provided the best route for myself. We spoke at length about the experience of Dr May and his staff including looking at examples of previous patients who were in a similar position to myself and had been recommended the same transplant.
Having spoken to a few different clinics I decided the best place for me to carry out the FUE procedure was at Wimpole. From my consultation to booking the date of my transplant I was in constant communication with Matt who was excellent to answer any questions I had (in matter of minutes) and was brilliant to put my mind at ease pre-operation. I had my operation a few days ago and was overwhelmed by the professionalism of not only Dr May but by Az, Sabba and Carolina who were unsung heroes being attentive and fantastic throughout. I was also fortunate enough for the team to cover a larger area of my head and can't wait for the final results! It is still early doors now however, I'm really pleased with the procedure and feeling good on the road to recovery. As ever Matt continues to be brilliant with constant communication to monitor my recovery.
I was particularly shocked at how reasonable the price of the procedure was.. The pre op treatment and post op was again top class. I am of Afro-Caribbean origin and had traction alopecia and strains from typical hairstyle to my hairline. Procedure started at 7.30 and we were done by 3. I also was so reassured at how team members took breaks and turns in implanting grafts, this was so important to know that they were at a 100% focus and attentive. I am very squeamish and have low tolerance for pain but the procedure was not painful. In fact I had built up so much anxiety scrawling the internet and reviewing so much pictures of the procedure which scared me.
Look no further.. This is the best honest and most professional team for your fue or FUT in London. I am so grateful that they have restored my hair without the worry of traveling out to Turkey and dealing with unfavourable consequences. Something others have had to experience. Trust Dr Ismail and Wimpole Clinic team. Thank you so much, not just for your attention to detail but for also helping me to manage my anxiety during the procedure and really having me at the forefront of treatment.
Having been sceptical about hair transplant treatments over the last few years I finally thought I would take the plunge during lockdown. Having initially contacted the Wimpole clinic I was immediately put into contact with James. He advised me on what was the best way to proceed & how to get the results I wanted. On the day of surgery I certainly got the VIP treatment. The staff were all very friendly & put any nerves I had at ease. I would happily refer any family or friends to James & his fantastic team. The results so far are all very promising & I look forward to my 6 month post surgery check up
Wimpole came highly recommended as the place to go and it's easy to understand why. Special thanks to James Walton who has been extremely helpful and reassuring throughout. During the initial consultation James provided clear and comprehensive information about how the entire process would work and really helped to put my mind at ease (it is a very manageable/pain free procedure). I had the FUE transplant four days ago and am very happy with the initial result and look forward to seeing progress. The day of the procedure was seamless and comfortable. Special thanks to Dr May and his team of Nurses who were professional and absolutely charming. They really make you feel at ease and comfortable. Dr May's experience shows and I couldn't recommend Wimpole highly enough if you are in the process of choosing. It's well worth it. Thanks James, Mr May and team!
I am writing this review on my first day after the FUE procedure at the Wimpole clinic.
How I chose my desired clinic?
There are quite a lot of hair transplant clinics across London and I did many investigations on this matter. In short, the key reasons I chose Wimpole were simple: Their honesty, caring, experience, and professionalism.
I had my first over-the-phone talk with James. He gave me honest advice on what was the best way for me to proceed and answered all my questions reasonably with decent knowledge. This was a key difference for me as I talked with other consultants before.
After that I got to meet James and Dr. May at the clinic before the procedure. They gave me an accurate estimation of the number of grafts I'd need and how my hairline would look like. I expressed all my concerns and they answered me with utmost honesty. There was no reason to not proceed with them with such great experience.
How the procedure day went?
In one word, fantastic! I was supposed to be there at 7:15 am, every step of the process from the very beginning to the end was well organized and I happened to have such a fun and memorable day!
Both Dr. May and his entire team were exceptional. They were truly skilled, friendly, and very helpful in explaining what's happening and how they're progressing. The procedure was painless, I watched a movie (yes you can watch any movie you'd like!), had a few short breaks, and didn't notice the time passing. I had 2400 grafts and the procedure was finished around 3:00 pm.
How I feel one day after the procedure?
Great, I feel no pain and I'm happy with the result. You just need to be careful about your head and follow their post-op care and there's nothing to worry about. I can't wait to see the results in the upcoming months! Thank you to all these wonderful people, thank you Asal for making me feel extremely calm during the day!
If you're in doubt about where to start with your hair transplant journey, I would highly recommend the Wimpole clinic - 10/10!
From my first communication with James Walton (Senior Consultant) right through to walking out of the building post operation, I can honestly say nobody should fear this procedure. The Wimpole clinic has been around since 1975 and this translates with the level of professionalism and knowledge that stands within the clinic.
I underwent approx. 2200 grafts which took pretty much the full day, starting with extraction in the morning and then implantation in the afternoon. Dr Luciano and his team pay particular care around placement of the donor hair grafts to ensure your hair follicles grow in the right direction, this area was never mentioned at other clinics. At all times I was comfortable and being the inquisitive person I am Dr Luciano kindly fully explained each stage to me.
Excellent service and I look forward to leaving another review in several months time when I can see the results.
Thank you all ! ! Wayne
