“A HAIR TRANSPLANT CHANGED MY LIFE”
nurses sat and worked with pieces of my scalp under a microscope, separating the follicles into clusters of one, two and three hairs. That’s the natural way your hair grows, I was told. To get the most natural look, the hairs have to be transplanted in these compositions. Every now and then Dr Knudsen topped up the local anaesthetic.
By about 5pm I was tired and restless but the whole day had gone well. In total, Dr Knudsen had transplanted some 2700 individual grafts, which translates to more than 5200 individual hairs. I was told that a percentage of the hairs would grow, while a large proportion would likely fall out and start growing a few months later.
