Dr. Bessam Farjo of Farjo Hair Institute was trained at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and specialized in follicular unit surgery in Toronto, Canada. Bessam works along with their carefully trained team (including his wife Dr. Nilofer Farjo), to provide ultra refined follicular unit hair transplantation in their state of the art Manchester, England clinic. Dr. Bessam Farjo provides state of the art FUT (strip surgery) and avanced FUE (follicular unit extraction) using all of the latest techniques and refined tools.
Many have questioned why a hair loss expert like Dr. Bessam Farjo would allow himself to go bald. Like many other men suffering from hair loss, Dr. Farjo did initially decide to do something about it. But minoxidil did nothing and Propecia was not yet available. Long ago, he did undergo hair transplant surgery but that was before the revolutionary techniques of today were available, adopted and widespread. Today, Dr. Farjo sports a cropped look and is satisfied with his own appearance. But that doesn't stop Dr. Farjo from battling baldness on behalf of his patients and applying revolutionary hair transplant techniques he's revolutionized.
Dr. Farjo limits the number of patients he operates on each day to assure that everyone receives the care and attention they deserve. The results of his very refined follicular unit surgery are impressive and can be viewed on this recommendation profile. The Farjo Clinic are able to do mega sessions of all follicular units, exceeding 3500 grafts, depending on the patients needs. Dr. Farjo is very careful to limit the size of the session to only that which can be done safely and with excellent rates of growth.
Dr. Farjo specializes in FUT, FUE and state of the art hair transplant repair work. This often involves removing part of the old outdated plugs or mini-grafts and dissecting them into 1, 2, 3, and 4 hair follicular unit grafts that are then redistributed in a natural pattern. They also have a sub specialty transplanting mustaches and beards.
Their clinic is registered with the Healthcare Commission as a surgical facility of the highest standard.
