Literally every day I catch a glance in the mirror and think to myself ‘the transplant really has worked!’
For me it’s a great result even though its early days.
I am realising that I never actually believed that the transplant would make a difference for me.
Years of depression about the hair loss and not looking in the mirror, made me prepare that this procedure would not work be successful for me personally. I was however driven enough to try it and be prepared for it not making difference at all or a poor result.
But it has made a difference, and so, every day I am a little surprised (and grateful) at my reflection.
Thank you to all of youRead More
I have just returned to Samson House for my six months check up. I had plugs implanted into my scalp in the 1980s which left me with an unnatural hairline. I had become paranoid from the age of 21 about my hair loss and had the plugs inserted. To date not one individual has commented on my new hairline. My new hair is growing at a phenomenal rate and my confidence is back. It really is so difficult to put into words about my euphoria with the ongoing growth. The last time this happened I was about six months old and not aware of the benefits! Each day there is growth and I am told by Dr Collins that this growth continues for about 1 1/2 years. The operation and its results are an absolute miracle to me and I would recommend to anyone who has had plugs to do something about it. While the cost of the operation was relatively expensive there is no monetary value in terms of the positives, the increased confidence, self worth and not having to hide a disfigured hairline.On a daily basis it has changed how I am living my life.Read More

About three years ago, I first noticed ‘thinning’ at my temples. Not thinking much of it at first, it progressed until, about 18 months ago, it was an all consuming obsession! I was losing hair daily, and my temples and crown in particular were getting very sparse! The stress and fear was unbearable with my mind constantly filled with worry and obsessing about my hairline. Sneaking glimpses in reflective surfaces and checking it 100 times a day became the norm, on top of increasing paranoia that ‘of course’ everyone was looking at the top of my head! The stress was impacting my life and, as a 36 year old man with a young family my self-image was not ready for baldness!…Read More
My journey with hair loss began in my very early teens – my hand always seemed to have a habit of going for my head if I became worried about something. I particularly remember one day when studying for my Intermediate Certificate pulling a hair out my head and almost feeling immediate relief from the anxiety inside me. This began my life with a condition known as Trichotillomania. Of course I did not know there was a name for what I did until I was in my late twenties when I saw a girl on a Talk Show speak about how she had pulled out much of her hair…Read More
My experience with the professionals
I always look forward to the review with Maurice and the team as I believe that the people in HRBR are 100% interested in my hairloss concerns, they hear my expectations and my views towards surgery. But most of all what I have experienced very comforting about my discussion about surgery is that they offer their expertise and guidance to give a realistic expectation to what the outcome will be. My own expectations to restore my twenties looks are soon revalued and my understanding of how I would actually look after surgery is soon realised as Maurice utilizes his experience and professionalism to bring me down to earth, he reminds me that I’m in my mid thirties now. (thank you Maurice) He will not promise the sun moon and stars if it is not realistic. The fact is I can have what I ask for but how I will look is just as important for the Team of people in HRBR as they want the best for you and I realise there is a true caring nature to how the result should be the best possible for the individual…Read More
It is now 9 months since I underwent the procedure at Samson House and I am writing to say how absolutely delighted I am at the outcome. I first consulted with Dr Collins in August 2011 as I was concerned at a small amount of sun damage to my scalp caused by the diminishing amount of hair cover over the years. At the age of 63 I had great doubts as to whether the procedure would be effective in covering the sun damage and in providing additional protection from the sun in the future. Dr Collins was hugely reassuring, wonderfully professional and my partner and I decided that I should go ahead. All aspects of the procedure itself were carried out in the most professional, relaxed and rigorous manner. The staff were superb and Beverley, in particular plays an outstanding role within the organisation…Read More
I am writing this for all men anxious about their hair loss, I’d encourage you to do extensive research but most importantly seek a reputable experienced hair loss clinic who have years of experience and the best surgeons available. I’m a thirty one year old man and became very concerned with the steady progression of my hair loss in my mid twenties. So four years ago I decided I needed to do something about it. The job I have means that I deal with clients on a regular basis and thus my appearance is very important to me. Unfortunately for me I made a rash decision and went to a commercial hair loss establishment where I dealt with various sales people promising x,y and z. I proceeded with the procedure and was left totally dissatisfied. Since then I have gone to a reputable clinic and have been extremely satisfied with the care I have received. Don’t make the same mistake I did, It’s one of the most important decisions you will ever make.Read More
