March 2018FUE Hair Transplant
I would do it all again but I guess ultimately my satisfaction with the procedure will depend on the results, which I won’t see for 9 months. Emma the consultant at Quno was friendly and great to talk to as well.
The pick up and drop off part I did myself for all three appointments. It wasnt offered by staff but that was ok as my hotel was close to the clinic. The Surgeon explained the procedure. I did find him rude towards his staff, and perhaps a bit rushed and vague in my interactions with him. The surgery went well, the other staff were friendly. The follow up was fine. I was advised not to exercise so I was concerned about the temperature outside, which was typically hot- in Kuala Lumpur. Airconditioned door to door transfers would have been best given the heat such as a taxi. However trains are airconditioned there. The clinic was a little grubby in places but aside from that okay. I would do it all again but I guess ultimately my satisfaction with the procedure will depend on the results, which I won’t see for 9 months. Emma the consultant at Quno was friendly and great to talk to as well. Emma was great to talk to. Email conversation details did get a little confused between me, quno and the clinic. Some of this was probably language differences but I felt like quno could have stepped in to clear it up. I also thought Quno could have helped more in the process of comparing clinics in the early stages. They did give information on pricing, but ultimately an opinion about who was the better / preferred surgeon between the different countries might have been good.
All is excellent!!
Dear Dr Ruben, I have returned home safely. I wish to thank you and your team for making the surgery painless. All is excellent!! It was indeed a new experience to me. Thank you. Thank you very much.
I have gotten back the hairline that I wanted!
I am happy with the results, my wife & even clients comment on it. As explained by Dr. Ruban, there was some initial hair loss of the transplanted hairs & existing hairs by around 20%, but these regrew in around 12 weeks.
Dr. Ruban is the most personable and professional consultant you could ever wish to meet and I recommend him without hesitation.
The procedure itself is totally painless. After the strip is taken, Dr. Ruban and his team (3 nurses) extract the follicles and replant them in the recession zones. It's a bit like gardening! It took about 6 hours for my transplant. Obviously there is a bit of swelling. Mine took about 5 days to clear. The first night is difficult if you sleep on your back because the site of the extraction is tender. After 3 months your hairdresser will not even be able to see the extraction site. The scar line is so thin. And then, after the original hair falls, the new hair begins to grow and with it your satisfaction at the result. You will not look like you did at 21 but the regrowth is definitely passable and natural looking. Dr. Ruban also recommends proven medication to encourage thickening of your existing hair. Finally, and importantly, Dr. Ruban is the most personable and professional consultant you could ever wish to meet and I recommend him without hesitation. The cost is substantial but for me it was value for money.
I was impressed with his professionalism.
Dr. Ruban is very friendly. He explained to me about my problems and the solutions. He was not like the other hair specialists who went straight into the conclusion of doing hair transplant which was extremely costly. I was impressed with his professionalism.
