The thirst for adventure is real for TV host, Antonio Jose Ongpauco Gaba also known as Kuya Tonipet. As a travel enthusiast, certified foodie, and art lover, he’s always ready to try anything new, fun, and exciting. The passion to explore definitely runs through his veins. Unfortunately hair loss does run in his blood, too and there were plenty of instances when it almost stopped him from doing things he really enjoys.
“I knew I was predisposed to hair loss. My Dad, at 30, started to lose his hair. Mine began when I was in high school. Then in college, parang lalo pang bumilis. I’ve tried steroids, topical creams, and hair tonics. Lahat ginawa ko na, pero walang nangyari. It affected my job badly. My business partner told me that in most of my photos, palagi ko daw hawak ‘yung buhok ko. My director in one of my shows suggested that I should try different hair styles. I didn’t know how to tell him that I can’t because my hair is already delicate.” That’s when he started looking for other options and discovered Svenson.
The initial consultation
During his first consultation, Tonipet knew right away that he’s in good hands. “Step by step ‘yung process and it was very objective. And nagulat ako, they are using high-tech machines. What I also like about them is hindi ka nila dadaanin sa sales talk. They will make an assessment then recommend the best treatment for you. After doing a series of tests, they told me that the best solution to my hair loss problem is the hair transplant procedure.”
On hair transplant: “I said YES right away!”
“I had no qualms about it because I know ‘dun din naman pupunta ‘yun since I’m predisposed to it,” he admits. But not everyone agreed with him at first. “Some of my friends said, why hair transplant? Ang bata mo pa! And masakit ‘yun!” But he still went for it and now he considers it as one of the best decisions he has ever made. “I had the FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) procedure. They extracted permanent hairs from the back of my head, and transplanted them around the temples where balding is prominent. The result is permanent and hindi mahahalata na you had surgery. It looks natural! And there was no pain at all.”
Why choose Svenson Hair Transplant
“The people at Svenson are well-trained and experts at what they do. Those who had botched results, it happened because they went to the wrong clinic. They did shortcuts. Or maybe the technology that was used was not as advanced as Svenson’s. That’s why it’s very important to choose only the best. Svenson for me is the number 1, so why would I go somewhere else.”
