Hair Restoration Success Story: “I’ve got my natural hair back”
The Bosley Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedure utilizes the latest, minimally invasive hair transplant technology available. Bosley Artistry makes hair transplantation work like nature. John Berta is a Bosley FUE hair transplant patient. This is his story.
For John Berta, it started as it does for millions of men all over the world: a few hair strands on your pillow, gradually more and more on your clothes. Then one day, you notice that your hairbrush has so much hair on it that you could almost groom it.
“Well, when you notice you’re losing your hair, it just sucks,” says John Berta, who is a recent patient of Bosley’s follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplant procedure. “Once I noticed my hair was receding, and there were some real problem areas… I started researching different options available to me, and that’s when I came across Bosley.”
John did his research and learned as much as he could about different hair restoration options. He was attracted to Bosley’s reputation throughout the industry for medically-sound hair restoration treatments and utilizing the latest hair transplantation techniques, including their FUE procedure.
Fortunately for John, he fell into the same advanced category of hair loss as many other men who have had the FUE procedure. His hair loss was at a state where it was restorable with the FUE hair transplant procedure but had progressed to the point where topical and medical therapies alone could not restore his hair to the point he wanted.
Aided by specialized surgical instruments, a trained surgeon moves individual follicular units (consisting of 1 to 4 hairs each), from one area of the patient’s scalp to another, by strategically selecting the placement of each individual follicular unit. The natural hairline is plotted in advance to re-create a look that’s nearly impossible to detect.
“I was awake. It was pain-free,” he recounts. “I had lunch, watched a movie, went home that evening, felt no pain or discomfort and was able to carry on my daily activities. There was no down time for me.”
A typical FUE procedure takes one day. John came in that morning, went in for his procedure, later that afternoon was done and headed home.
“I went to work the next day, went out with friends that week but the best part of it all is no one noticed and they never will. My donor area healed quickly and with the FUE I don’t have a linear scar or any visible scarring” says John.
Medically innovative, minimally invasive, and artistically effective: That’s what a lot of patients think about THE BOSLEY FUE procedure.
It’s medically innovative because our Hair-by-Hair® transplantation method allows a radical departure from how it was done before. The result is a major enhancement of the patient experience.
Not to mention Bosley artistry is the essential component for ultimate success: patient satisfaction – just ask John.
“I’ve got my natural hair back,” John says. “Before my Bosley procedure, I basically had … a receding hairline. With the help of Bosley, they let me restore my hair with my own natural hair, and it’s my hair.”
Bosley isn’t just improving an old way of doing things; we’ve changed the way hair transplantation is done. Our goal: to help every patient recapture the confidence and happiness they deserve.
“My only regret is not doing something sooner. I waited and did a lot of research and talked to a lot of different people before I had anything done. I wish I had come to Bosley as soon as I noticed some loss.”
