Life Changing hair transplant
Life Changing hair transplant

I started noticing my hair thinning out in my late 30s, a reality that hit me hard. It was more than just a few strands on my pillow; it reached a point where my scalp peeked through no matter how I styled my hair. One day, while trying to fix extensions with hair tape, it just wouldn’t stick – a clear sign of how bad it had gotten. I felt exposed, especially during a work presentation when a colleague innocently pointed out that my “hair was slipping,” mistaking my extensions for my real hair. That moment of embarrassment was a low point for me.

That’s when I discovered Bernstein Medical. Skeptical but desperate, I decided to try their FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) hair transplant technique. It sounded so technical; I was braced for a harsh process. To my surprise, it was anything but. The procedure was gentle, and the team was incredibly supportive, making what I feared would be a painful journey quite bearable.

Today, looking in the mirror feels like I’m seeing myself again, maybe for the first time in years. Bernstein didn’t just restore my hair; they gave me back a piece of my identity and the confidence to face the world without that constant worry of being found out. It’s funny how something as simple as hair can have such a profound impact on your life.

a happy 25 year old man

A 25-year-old man with an almost bold head was not something I was happy about. I tried medications but they didn’t give the wanted results. So I had the hair transplant surgery, where 2950 grafts were removed from the back of my head and transplanted where needed. The procedure all in all was very good.

After visiting Dr. Bernstein’s clinic for a hair consultation and treatment, I would say the experience was overall very good. The procedure and hygiene were excellent, and the aftercare was very good excellent, but the consultation was average.
