What Patients Are Saying

11 April 2019

As the partner of a very nervous patient, I want to tell you that if you choose Mr Malkani as your surgeon you will not be sorry. Shane had wanted this procedure for a while, but was nervous, he hates going to the doctors and even worse hospitals or anything like it.  It took lots of encouragement to get him to take the plunge, I knew 5 years down the line he would regret not having this done. The night before we stayed in London round the corner from Harley street, Shane was really nervous the night before, but as soon as we met Dr Malkani he made him feel really relaxed, he answered every question we had, completely honestly and within 5 minutes had earnt both of our respect and trust, something that remained throughout the day. Shane was really looked after, and Mr Malkani made me feel included. While I could not be in the room with Shane for the first part of the procedure, I was kept informed of progress and got to have lunch with him before the second part of the process.

If you are in doubt of to do this, and your doubt is related to the actual procedure, then let me tell you there is nothing at all to worry about with Malkani hair institute.

Going into this procedure I was nervous as you would expect, however after talking to Dr Malkani for the first 20 minutes and going over the procedure and how it would work, I can honestly say I felt really relaxed and I am not someone who likes to visit any doctor and hospitals fill me with dread. This was a totally different experience, I felt completely comfortable with Dr Malkani and both the nurses that assisted him with my procedure. Mr Malkani assured me that they would look after me like family, and that ‘today I was their priority’, saying this is easy, but honestly that is how I felt from start to finish. The whole procedure was weirdly one of the most relaxing days I have spent I even fell asleep during the first part of the procedure where hairs are removed from the donor site, the atmosphere is relaxed and the team are amazing at what they do. I can honestly say the only downside to the day was the my partner managed to get a picture of me wearing crocs, something I swore I would never do :).

“The process is like no other and does take some time but I knew that in entering the procedure, Mr Malkani is really thorough and excellent at what he does reassuring along the way taking his time to get it right. The support he has from his team is first class and the ladies went about the implants really methodically working simultaneously together to place each follicle. So for me because I lived so far away from London I did develop some real soreness around the head and believed I had an infection which is something that can happen, I spoke to the emergency hot line and sent pictures in, to which Mr Malkani that same day prescribed some low level antibiotics, the pharmacist sent them out via a carrier but unfortunately they took three days to get to me despite being urgent, my head was sore and the weekend was coming so I had to source them myself from my own GP surgery. So now its almost five weeks on, things are looking normal, hair has taken, and is starting to look good and I can now see what it will look like longer term. Would I have done this now knowing what was actually involved – yes I would it is really worth it.”

“I had a beard transplant carried out on the 9th October 2018 in London by Dr Mir Malkani. It was a very long process, which I knew it would! Dr Malkani and his team were just wonderful!!! They made sure throughout the whole process that I was happy and comfortable, and they worked at my pace not theirs!

I do have to have several local anaesthetic injections in both the scalp (donor site) and the face. I didn’t experience any problem with this, but I do think I have quite a high pain threshold!
It’s now 17 days since the transplant, and I’m perfectly happy with everything! All the scabs and crusting (sorry about this, if you’re a bit squeamish!!) There’s absolutely no pain whatsoever! The hairs are quite noticeable on my chin, under my lower lip, as there wasn’t any hair there at all. And over all the appearance looks pretty good at the moment!

He couldn’t do enough to make me feel relaxed and happy! And he explained everything to before, during and after the procedure. And I would just like to mention his ‘team’, Farzana, Julie, Keira, Anni, and Marcin – what a great bunch of people! They made me hot drinks, supplied me with food, water, tv to watch and music to listen to!! I’m partially sighted, and they really took care of me!
If you are considering a hair transplant, this is the man to use!!!

Thanks so much, each and everyone of you!”

“Had a really positive experience with Dr Malkani from start to finish. Very friendly and informative initial meeting; following a decision to progress I was given an advisor I could call at any time. I was daunted ahead of the procedure , but I shouldn’t have been. Dr M was brilliant, really knowledgable and calm and the day passed very quickly. After care was good, my contact supported me through questions that arrived. 6 months on I’m over the moon.the results are amazing , however after my 6 month review I was told I only had 42% growth (which is normal) so that is just out of this world! I’d be happy if it stopped growing now, but to have the same again to come is life changing. I’d definitely recommend Dr Malkani.”

“I am an aesthetician working in Harley Street and know lots of Hair transplant surgeons on Harley Street. I chose Dr Malkani because of recommendations from some of my own patients. I sent my uncle for a consultation with Dr Malkani.There was no pushy sales technique and Dr Malkani told my uncle what was best for him. He is now booked for September.”

“I saw Dr Malkani for a consultation a year ago.It felt very different talking to a doctor from a sales person who I had met in other clinics . Dr Malkani was factual, realistic and honest and told me what was possible and not possible in the consultation . I have had a fantastic result nine months later. I am really pleased I went for it. It’s been life changing!”
