Since the age of 23, Bert has been using Finasteride for a period of 5 years. Then he got fed up with the side effects and quit the treatment. He started using Toppik to cover his thinning hair. Add a daily routine of Minoxidil and there you have an overview of this young man's fight against hair loss.
“If I went out and forgot my umbrella, I totally freaked out. The fear of my Toppik being ruined was huge.”
As a barber / hair dresser, it is his daily goal is to make people happy about their hair. But his own hair situation became quite confronting, since he literally works more than anyone in front of a mirror. Go figure... So he decided to make an appointment with Dr. Feriduni to talk things through.
After all his attempts, Bert took a decision he had been thinking about for several years: a hair transplantation. Dr. Feriduni was able to perform a FUE with 3098 FU to restore his receding and thinning hairline as natural as possible. Bert's classification was Norwood III at age 30, which is quite young. Dr. Feriduni always takes into account possible further hair loss and he made sure Bert's donor area was used safely for extraction.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we only got to see Bert's progress by the pictures he has sent us per email. We then agreed on planning a safe and professional photoshoot on the day Bert was allowed to open his barber shop again. And then this kind of magic happened...
I was afraid of becoming bald. People close to me know that my hair (except for my wife and son) is my world. And you'd say: then shave it. Sure, but I just didn't want that for the rest of my life. For all people out there who are insecure, I can only advise: go for it! This was the best decision I've made in the last 10 years. For me, Dr. Feriduni and the staff are simply heroes without capes.
Thank you ♥️
With over 20 years of experience, Dr. Feriduni has performed more than 10000 hair transplants on patients of every age, race, gender and skin colour. He has a master eye when it comes to (re)creating the hairline. Every detail matters because the hairlines literally frames the face and you can't tell if someone has had a hair transplant when it is done in a natural way.
When creating the hairline, Dr. Feriduni respects the patient's facial shape, jaw line and bone structure. The hairline type and multiple landmarks a.o. the frontal midpoint, temporal points, sideburns etc. are taken into account. The natural hair density should be approached as much as possible. Recreating the hairline takes meticulous measurements and is a custom process in which Dr. Feriduni strives to achieve the most natural result. Also, safe donor management is key in our clinic. For example, a receding hairline in your twenties can probably be restored. But chances are high that further hair loss (of non-transplanted hair) will occur. Dr. Feriduni calculates the donor area (the area on the back of the head) to foresee a possible future treatment or consider a follow-up with a medical treatment to stabilize or stop further hair loss.
Faces come in about 7 different shapes: round, oval, square, rectangular, triangular, diamond- and heart-shaped. It is a plus to know which one fits yours, for it can be a major help in choosing new glasses or knowing how to wear your make-up right. And of course, the shape of your face is key in designing your new hairline. Below you can find an overview with examples of celebrity facial shapes.
Hairlines on the other hand differ between men and women. The male hairline is characterised by 2 lines: the anterior and temporal line. These two never remain straight because that would create a fake look. Unfortunately, we tend to see a lot of patients who had a bad hair transplant performed somewhere else. The hairline is too straight, like some sort of carpet running over the forehead. Or the density is completely wrong: e.g. too much in the front, not enough to the back. It is important that the temporal and anterior line are further subdivided into micro and macro irregularities. Only then it is possible to match a natural appearance.
The shape of female hairlines comes in a variety of rounded, triangular, rectangular, M- or bell-shaped curves. Dr. Feriduni will always consider the soft transition zone with the proper density in order to recreate a beautiful and natural look.
