Dan Jude, 28, started losing hair in his late teens. When he was 19 years old, he noticed the first few stray hairs on his pillow; that’s when he realised he was suffering from premature baldness.
As time passed, Dan’s self-esteem dropped, he began obsessing and comparing himself to men he passed in the street. He begun seeing a therapist to help him cope with his situation, however he still felt embarrassed speaking about his problem and struggled to confront it.
A few years ago, he visited a London clinic where he was prescribed a revolutionary drug Propecia – this stopped the hair falling out after a period of time – however it didn’t reverse the emotional scars and effects that hair loss that had cause.
Dan discovered Hair Transplant Surgery after hearing about celebrities, such as Wayne Rooney, having successful results in the media and decided to see a leading transplant surgeon to find out more information. He decided to have Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant surgery, this is where healthy hairs are extracted from the back and sides of the head and reinserted in the effected bald areas. He had around 8,000 new hairs planted across the front of his scalp and was informed that it can take up to 12 months to see full effects of the surgery.
Post surgery, Dan was excited to share his op results with friends and family, additionally, he announced his transplant results on social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter, and received hundreds of positive feedback – this was the reinforcement he needed.
A week later, the swelling went down and the scabs came off, Dan felt a lot more confident in himself and optimistic about the end result. He announced that his decision was to improve his self-esteem, not for vanity purposes.
