Dear Dr Epstein,
Thank you very much for taking time to review my case. I do appreciate your response and the emails you sent me, plus the illustration of the proposed treatment.
I am a 32 year old female from the UK. For years I have been experiencing male type hair-loss and I have lost most of my hair on my temples. The quality of my life has deteriorated significantly due to this condition and I would be grateful for hope of restoring my hairline. Looking at the photos I understand this is possible. I have close up pictures of my hairline and I will send them to your address[email protected] in a few minutes. I would be very grateful for a consultation, diagnosis and recommendation of what can be done and when.
I am definitely interested in having this procedure done; I would love to speak to one of your UK patients; would you kindly forward this email to your Office Manager, Roxy, so that she can arrange such a meeting for me. If she needs me to call her to discuss this rather than write an email I am happy to call; please let me know.
I have a number of questions I would love to discuss with you if possible; do you take calls from prospective patients?
In terms of my concerns I am wondering about the following:
01 Can I have FUE rather than strip method please?
02 Can this procedure be done with my hair long? (shoulder length)
03 Will there be any shock loss in the adjacent areas?
04 Will I have any small scars or marks in the recipient site (hairline)?
05 How long will it take for the scabs and the redness in the recipient site to completely disappear?
06 Will I have small bald spots at the donor site (back of the head) or will you be taking individual strands from all over my head?
07 Can I get reasonable density with one procedure?
