I want to thank you for making my FR8 Follicular treatment a wonderful experience! I was so afraid, but it turned out to be the best appointment ever. I am pleased to say that i had no bruising whatsoever. I was not swollen or red and had hardly any pain during the procedure. My scalp felt a little tender for 2 days when i slept on my pillow, but otherwise it was an absolute breeze. I owe that to your skilful hands. I am hoping the results will be as impressive as your workmanship. On a positive note my hair seems to have stopped falling out!! I had my hair cut and it looks a lot healthier.
All the best.
FOLLICULAR REGENERATE THERAPY
I would like to share my experience of the above mentioned treatment. Firstly the fact that the procedure is unknown, and the thought of what it may embrace, make you feel almost scared to have it done. I, however, had a very good experience. I was kept informed of every action and of what I might feel and really felt at ease during the whole procedure. I never felt any of the pricks or stings I was told that I might feel. In fact, I felt nothing at all! It was done so professionally and lying down during the course of the procedure, it felt like an afternoon nap. I thought that I would need a pain stiller that night, but even that was not necessary. In short, I would rather go through another Follicular Regenerate Therapy than going to a dentist! It really was a painless experience!

Today it’s been 9 months post-surgery and I literally have a head full of hair! The numbness and sensitivity experienced over the top of my head since the surgery is now 90% gone and my hair continues to grow. My hair line is thickening and the follicles have gone from sprouting 1 strand to 2 and 3 strands. My confidence is gone through the roof. When I tell people I’ve been for hair transplant surgery I get laughed at and told I’m talking absolute rubbish!
The last guy I told about my implants responded with (and I quote) “are you sh#*ting me??? Dude! You have a freaking afro!!!!” (He’s the guy that has visited you recently for a consult and will be back soon for his treatment)
I may have written an essay about my experience but all I intended to do was praise and thank you Doc for the absolute life changing experience you have given me. I remember telling you on the day of my consult / surgery that all I want is to be like those guys you have up on your wall. And you have given it to me. I, just like them have been given back the gift of youth!! And that is all thanks to you. Your kindness, honesty, enthusiasm and bubbly-ness has won over my heart and will continue to do so in the future. As for your assistants, my love and gratitude to them all. Especially Lucinda who assisted me with my bookings and transfers etc.
The work you are doing impacts people’s lives tremendously and I sincerely thank you from the bottom of each and every follicle you have planted and the bottom of my heart, lungs and kidneys for restoring my youth…
It’s been an epic journey and 1 which I will never forget. I’ve sang your praises to everyone that has noticed my hair growth and will continue to do so. (Basically I’ve been a walking business card) Most importantly, you gave me your word that your treatment will restore my hair and you have kept to it and for that I am forever grateful!
I wish you every success in the future and may God bless you with your hearts desires.
Thank you for the (FR-8) session in Johannesburg. I experienced no pain whatsoever even after the anaesthetic had worn off.
My healing process has been very good (better and quicker that the first procedure). My scar is still a bit red, but atleast there hasn’t been as much stretching as I experienced with the first operation (if it does, I’ll take Dr. Gershowitz up on his offer to remove the scar at a later stage, but for now it’s not necessary). Hair regrowth has started, with evidence of shoots all over my head, so I’m very, very happy.
I was there for an operation about 18 months ago.
I am so satisfied with my op! You cannot imagine the complements I have received!!
Yet, I would like to consider a follow up operation.
I was thinking of doing this operation again in October.
Dear Doctor Larry
Thank you and your professional personnel staff for the great experience. People like myself often put off these kind of procedures due to the stigma around it. Pain, never works, and non-natural look is all the lies that I been told.
I must admit, that the only negative feeling that I have had following my surgery is the fact that I had never done the procedure earlier. I am at that colourless thin strands phase, as you mentioned below, but the results are becoming more noticeable as each day passes. There are visible gaps between the grafted hair but you had made me aware that this was due to the low number of grafts obtained from the poor 2200 yield. I must however mention that the positioning of each graft was perfect considering you had such a large area to cover. I am also aware, that I am in the 50% growth mark, so I am sure the gaps between will start to close as times passes.
I have no problems to take my hat off to you for the brilliant work done. (Pun Intended)
I will definitely make an appointment to visit your clinic for a consultation, when in the beautiful Western Cape again else, you could inform me on the dates you going to be in Sandton again.
To the doctor who made me prettier and more self esteemed and to the staff that is the rock behind him.
I can not even begin to explain how happy I am. The hair growth started within a month after the procedure and since two month already I could clip the hair back.
I am sure it won’t take long anymore and I won’t be reminded that I had a procedure done at all. The only thing I do is stroking it into the right
direction every morning and apply a bit of hair structure gel. I will send you a picture in my next mail.
I am I Germany right now but will be back in mid feb and I will gladly take advantage if showing you all my new hair. Until then I wish you all the best
and thumps up for your precious work.
Dear Dr Larry Gershowitz,
It is hard to believe that six months have passed since my surgery. How time flies.
My experience at MHR was fantastic to say the least. The first few days after surgery were probably the hardest. Some swelling did occur in my face about a week after surgery but this went away within 48 hours. Gradually things become easier as the time passed.
The scabs on my head began to fall off after a few days as expected. Initially only a handful of scabs came off my head after every wash during my stay in Johannesburg. However within hours of arriving in Wellington, I experienced a lot of itching and the scabs began literally falling off my head but were almost completely gone after about two or three hair washes.
I had my sutures removed by my doctor and his nursing staff on 11 June 2012. They were very impressed at what they saw.
There was a small amount of bleeding, on odd scar here and there afterwards but they healed within weeks.
The new follicles began growing around September and I’ve attached images of my head and myself for you to see the progress.
Apart from an improved physical appearance, the hair transplant has also made me feel more confident about myself and as a result I have become more sociable and outgoing. Virtually all of my coworkers at work have noticed my new hairline.
I would love to “pop in” for a follow up evaluation and consultation but this is not possible since I currently reside in New Zealand, though you are welcome to contact me via Skype.
Hi Dr Larry
I hope you are doing well.
It has now been nearly two years since my procedure ,and I just thought about it again today,how chuffed I am with the results and how different my life would have been if I did not have that procedure done!”
“Good day Dr Gershowitz
Just a quick email to thank you for the professional way in which my transplant was handled and executed. From the arrangements for the guest house to the procedure, everything was done extremely well.
Thank you so much.
Thank you so much for the follow up. So far my hair looks great… I have a hairline and a new hairstyle. I am very excited to see the results in the next 6 months. You guys are the best!!! Thank you for changing my life!!
A while ago I also received a follow-up email with regards to my progress. I must say, at first, I was a bit sceptical about the regrowth, but about 2months ago my hair started to rapidly regrow.
For the first time in ages I can now go to work, gym, social events without wearing a hat.. That for me alone, is the single best thing I’ve received!
And as per your previous mail, the regrowth process isn’t even completed. So I am VERY excited to see what my hair holds for me.
A HUGE thank you to Dr. Larry!
Great to hear from you.
I am still absolutely thrilled with the work you guys did on my noodle!
Fantastic success the transplant was.
THANK YOU once again.
Great to hear about your successes, well done!
You guys have truly changed my life and I have been so grateful ever since..
Continue to do your great works..
Me and “J” are doing great.
Things have settled down well and are starting to look great. The beginning is always a bit difficult, but round 2 was much easier than round 1 but I’m feeling so relaxed and confident now, I was using hair spray to keep things covered and i always used to wear a cap to go to gym (for years), no hair spray and no cap now, its awesome.
Thank you very very much,
Thank you so very very much Doc Larry
I appreciate it
I would like to let you know that since taking the Finpecia and using a Minoxidil spray, I have seen great results. My hair is thicker and healthier than ever, a remark confirmed by my hairdresser each time she cuts my hair! Wat I have also found is that it is not as dry and brittle as before. It seems with change in diet, lower stress levels and the use of medication, I have found a easy solution to my problem, and most of the thanks goes to you, mainly for the kind and positive words when I saw you.
