When it comes to style and fashion, hair is just as important as the clothes and shoes you’re wearing. “It’s the first thing people see and notice about you, and it’s a reflection of your personality. That’s why it’s important that you know how to take care of it,” claims Suki Salvador, one of the country’s most celebrated Creative Director, Stylist, and Editor.
But for years, he struggled with hair loss. When nothing seemed to work after trying different shampoos and medications, he began to explore other options and discovered Svenson. Here, he shares all about his experience having hair transplant procedure done, from the initial consultation to post-op results. Find out how Svenson Hair Transplant changed his life and why saying YES to it is one of the best decisions he’s ever made.
When did you start to notice the hair-loss signs?
I started to notice it 5 to 8 years ago. A friend told me, ‘Hey your hair is thinning!’ That time, I kinda ignored it. It started to hit me when I got rained on one time. When the water dropped, it fell straight to my scalp. It was very alarming. And every time I’m sitting at my office desk, I could feel the air from the AC hitting my scalp directly. That’s when I decided to go to Svenson for a consultation.
How did hair loss affect your job?
I’m in fashion. Styling my hair is important and hair loss restricted me from pulling off fun, unique hairstyles. I couldn’t color my hair as wild or as crazy even if I wanted to. I couldn’t cut it too short or grow it too long, because it would weigh my hair down, which can make my hair loss problem more obvious.
What made you decide to have the hair transplant procedure done?
I just realized, people nowadays are very active; they travel a lot, myself included. So it’s hard to go to the centre as often as you should. When my trichologist at Svenson recommended hair transplant, I said yes right away.
How did the procedure go? Tell us about your whole experience.
During the first consultation, they did several tests to assess my hair-loss condition. After getting the results, they recommended the FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) procedure. The process involves taking a strip of your scalp from the back of your head, where some of your healthy and permanent hairs are planted, to replace the balding areas. Before we started, they even asked me to choose what shape of hairline I want to have! I chose the square one. The procedure took hours but it was comfortable. I even posted what’s happening on my social media accounts and everyone was like, ‘How are you so calm?’. I just felt that I was in good hands, which only means that my doctors were great at what they’re doing. Three months after the surgery, here I am seeing great results. Can’t wait to see further hair growth in the next few months!
Why would you recommend Svenson Hair Transplant procedure?
I believe it’s the best option for those experiencing hair loss, because it’s permanent and the technology they are using now can guarantee a very high success rate. And it’s not something you should feel ashamed of, especially those who are young. Balding is actually a young man’s problem. It can start even in your 20s, but you can do something about it. When you’re young, you have plenty of options and reasons to save your hair. With the technology these days, there’s no excuse not to be beautiful. And the best thing about Svenson hair transplant is that it’s complete, comprehensive, and they got you covered from start to finish. It’s the trifecta of full service!
