Patient RHK is a Norwood Class 5A. He has medium weight, dark brown hair and a donor density of 2.2 hair/mm2. Results shown are after two hair transplant sessions totaling 4,153 follicular unit grafts.
RHK: “I liked the fact that Dr. Bernstein clearly stated that hair transplants are not for everybody. I knew immediately that this office didn’t feel like I was in a churn and burn factory-like environment that would simply take all prospective patients and reel them in. In an odd way, I liked the fact that I saw a professional providing advice and commentary at his Open House that in a number of cases resulted in the patient recognizing that transplantation might not be right in their own circumstance. I liked the candor and honesty represented in this first meeting with Dr. Bernstein. I didn’t know how bad I wanted my hair back until Dr. Bernstein pointed out that I came into his office with a comb over and it was my way of really trying to cover my head and hide my baldness.
During my consultation time, Dr. Bernstein took the time to listen to my entire personal history and understood my rationale for wanting new hair. From that review, I decided on Dr. Bernstein to perform my surgery. I liked his personality, his credentials in being recognized as one of the leaders in the world for hair transplantation, and most importantly, his artistic and technical skills as demonstrated by my direct interaction with prior clients attesting to their high satisfaction levels achieved.
I have had two transplant surgeries, October ’04 (2,213 FUT), and October ’07 (1940 FUT). Both of the procedures went flawlessly and I never experienced any pain or swelling of any significance, and I was back to work immediately without anybody noticing anything. Dr. Bernstein’s seasoned staff, of nurses and surgical assistants was excellent and performed their work in a pleasant professional manner and they seemed confident and well trained in their roles. For me, this support team represented a key component in ensuring a productive surgical outcome. Their friendly attitude and solicitous attention to my needs as a patient, made the time go by without me wanting or needing anything.
I am writing this for those of you that are apprehensive about this procedure. I can say that it has been one of the best things I have done in my life and my satisfaction level is very high. Had I known that the procedure was going to result in such a positive outcome, I certainly would have done it sooner. I believe my initial research for a qualified physician paid off and hope that my story helps you through your process.”
