Embarrassing Bodies Dr. Has His Very Own Hair Transplant…..

POSTED: 06 May 2011

I was pleasantly surprised to hear from Dr Christian Jessen in April 2009 to discuss his own “embarrassing illness”.

When I first saw him at my Harley Street clinic about a year ago, he felt very self conscious of his high forehead and temples.  I felt that he was not very comfortable in himself although a very confident man.

He had already decided in his mind before the consultation had even started that he would have his hair transplant procedure.

Following  from a patient who had his hair transplant on Embarrassing Illnesses in 2008, Dr Jessen was so impressed with his results, he decided to make contact with me.

On the day of surgery, he was his usual cool self, slightly anxious as it was the fear of the unknown.

Once we started the surgery, it took about 5-6 hours to complete the surgery which was performed under local anaesthetic.   Surgery was tiring but not painful, he said it was only uncomfortable for a couple of minutes when the local anaesthetic was given.

We gave him the post operative instructions on how to look after the grafts and he went back to his normal lifestyle as being a celebrity Dr within a week.  He was aware that the results for the hair transplant would not be visible for at least 6 months.

Once he had the full growth of the grafts, he was very pleased with his results and the rest is history……
