The Patient Said
I was always a bit reluctant to go for hair transplant, however I finally decided to take the plunge, and singled out Clinicana from the options on this site, and I was not disappointed. The treatment consisted in standard FUE, quite a lengthy operation, and that obviously depends on the number of grafts needed. I would say it was definitely good value, especially considering local prices for the same operation.
I based my choice on the reviews on this site, though I have to admit I did not do much comparison. However I definitely was not disappointed. The clinic, at least when I visited about a year and a half ago, is run by three brothers, respectively taking care of the medical, pharmaceutical, and administrative sides. Mulham is the person who usually gets into contact with the clients. The whole procedure was very professional and that counts both for the general client treatment, as well as for the technical aspect. The staff is very nice, and try to provide assurance and confidence to nervous patients. The actual operation is not so painful, at least it was bearable for me. The anesthetic injections can hurt a bit, but they shall assure lack of discomfort during the operation. What was a bit challenging is the length of the operation, but I would say its worth it given results. Actually the most painful thing is the aftermath of the operation, when anaesthetic starts to wear off, and you start to feel the little punctures where units were extracted. That with the need to guard against touching your head can be a bit tough, especially for the first night, but with the supplied medication and some patience it is bearable. One minor downside is the lack of spoken English of the staff actually performing the operation. Some knowledge of English would help - however this does not really bother the client. Today after about a year and a half after the operation, I can say results are very good.
