The Farjo Hair Institute is a family run clinic solely devoted to performing excellent follicular unit hair transplantation in Manchester, with consultations in London.

Why Dr. Farjo is recommended.

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.

View highlights of our recent visit to the Farjo clinic

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 This often involves removing part of the old outdated plugs or mini-grafts and dissecting them into 1, 2, 3, and 4 hair follicular unit grafts that are then redistributed in a natural pattern.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.

Drs. Bessam is an active participant and presenter with the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery every year since the organization’s 1st Annual Conference in Dallas, Texas in 1993 and was the 15th president of the ISHRS from October 1st, 2007 through September 30th, 2008. View the "Highlights From the 15th Annual ISHRS Scientific Meeting in 2007" for more information. He and his wife are also founding members of the British Association of Hair Restoration Surgeons.

Dr. Bessam Fajo also been very a very active s with the European Society of Hair Restoration Surgery and hosted the 5th annual Conference of the European Society of Hair Restoration Surgery in London in 2002.

Dr. Bessam Farjo has performed over 3,000 hair transplant procedures and has been awarded a Fellow of the International College of Surgeons (FICS) in plastic surgery. He has also been featured in the ISHRS’s Hair Transplant Forum Journal as “Surgeon of the Month”.

At the Farjo Hair Institute, all potential patients are assessed by one of the doctors before any treatment is scheduled. They are also given an estimate of the number of grafts and procedures needed and the total cost involved.

For those who want to do an initial consultation via long distance they have installed web cams in both their Manchester and London clinics.

The Farjo Hair Institute also uses dissolvable sutures in the donor area for strip procedures so that patients traveling from over seas do not have to make a return visit to have their sutures removed.

Why Patients Choose Dr. Farjo for Hair Transplantation

Dr. Bessam Farjo discusses why hair loss sufferers should choose him and the Farjo Medical Centre for their hair restoration procedure.

Below is a transcript of the hair transplant video for your reference.

"I think if I was to sell myself or if a patient was to ask me why they should come to me, I'd say well because I dedicated my practice, 95% almost 100% to hair restoration. It's because I've evolved significantly over the years. I discuss a lot of what I do with colleagues. I try to educate myself as much as possible. I feel that we are doing work, using techniques, on par with the elite hair transplant surgeons of the world. I consider new techniques and incorporate them if I find them, beneficial to the patient. Patients also have the opportunity to have extensive communication with the doctor who's doing the surgery. Also, the patient has the opportunity to come for plenty of follow-up, etc."

Dr. Farjo Shares Real Patient Testimonials and Results

Dr. Bessam Farjo shares real patient testimonials and results on video.

The Farjo Medical Centre

Below is a transcript of the hair transplant video for your reference. "Another case is just a patient I brought with me to this conference, Adrian who wasn't lacking self confidence, but was really frustrated with his hair. He wasn't sure whether or not he should just shave his head. And if he didn't shave his head, there wasn't much he could do. And he completely shocked me because he came back a year after his hair transplant, and bleached his hair with a mohawk style. He shaved the back of his head like a train track and put a smudge of blue at the back of his head. He was just so overjoyed with his hair that he decided to do the whackiest thing he could do because he just didn't have the opportunity before. And I've seen him 2 or 3 times since then and every time he does something completely different with his hair and he's just pleased that he has the opportunity to do that now."

Dr. Farjo Discusses His Hair Transplant Clinic's Strengths

Dr. Bessam Farjo discusses his hair transplant clinic strengths.

Below is a transcript of the hair transplant video for your reference.

"I'd like to think that I give patients the time and the space to consider their solutions for their hair loss. I like to think that we're not selling anything to the patient. I'm mearly giving them advice. I encourage them to take time to consider the surgery...don't make a rash decision. I'm particularly proud that I see every patient for consultation, although we do have a patient coordinator who is my liason between me and the patient. After all, I can't take every single phone call or answer every single email. I also find that a lot of times that the patient likes to talk to a layperson. Sometimes they tell him things that they don't tell the doctor. But when it comes to consultation and when it comes to somebody considering surgery, everyone, the recommendation, the medical history, either myself or the other physician who happens to be my wife will see every patient. And also in the post-op review, we like to see everybody because I like to assess the majority of the grafts, what the scar is like at the back. Other strong points, I feel we have clinics that are registered in the UK, we have a system where we have to be licensed by the authorities so it's not just the doctor who's licensed, but the clinic as an establishment is licensed as well. And we're proud that we're very compliant. We're so compliant that the authorities in the last few years have exempted us from coming to inspection because they're quite happy with the way we do things."

Dr. Farjo Shares a Female Hair Loss and Hair Transplant Miracle

Dr. Bessam Farjo shares a fantastic story of how a female hair loss sufferer restored not only her hair, but her lost confidence through surgical hair restoration.

"Over the years, I've done a lot of different situations, who needed hair restoration from male pattern hair loss to female pattern hair loss to beards, mustaches, eyebrows. But a couple of recent stories I can think of right now there's a young girl who happens to be a student nurse. She had a brain tumor following which, she had radiotherapy to her head. Where the beam hit the scalp, it caused a band of hair loss across the front. This is a reasonably pretty girl, 21 year old, life just beginning. It was pretty devastating for her and she went and consulted her dermatologist who happened to know our work and he thought this would be a good case. And she not only got a great result, but she was so pleased about it that she was determined to help others in her position. So she was quite pleased to go and talk to the newspapers, the media and she got tremendous coverage. But out of that, her confidence increased so much, that I actually watched her on TV talking about her hair, and you almost think, where does this girl come from, was she the same girl who had hair restoration surgery the year before that?"

Dr. Farjo Discusses Selecting a Quality Hair Transplant Surgeon

Dr. Bessam Farjo discusses what hair loss sufferers considering hair transplantation should look for in a surgeon.

Below is a transcript of the hair transplant video for your reference.

"There are a few things that I think every patient should look at when they're choosing their hair surgeon that could be helpful in them coming across the right person. I always believe that if you dedicate the majority of your practice to hair restoration, then you become more experienced and also shows you're more committed to it. It's only natural after all. So that is more likely a type of doctor to go for. Also I tell the patient to make sure they're doctor is always kept abreast of developments, they attend meetings, they meet with colleagues, they discuss things to make sure any new development that may be of use to their patients they can incorporate into their practice. Also, see good examples of the work by their doctor. Sometimes when you go into the consultation, you see a business person, not a doctor or maybe there are several doctors working for that place. Make sure you see examples of the doctor who's actually going to be performing the surgery on you. And photographs are sometimes good enough, but I encourage them to see existing patients in person. A lot of the time I may not be able to arrange it but sometimes when someone comes in for a consultation, I very often have someone around in the clinic who just happens to be coming out of surgery or coming for a post-op review. They're very often happy to come say hi and let the patient play with their hair, etc. And very often I give the prospective patient a telephone number of a willing patient and they contact them independently and they talk over the phone or meet in person, etc. I tell them to look at independent reviews, look on the internet, do the searches. Don't believe everything you read on the internet, but use their intelligence and filter the good from the bad and it helps them make a decision. Also, talk to other doctors and go to centers around you and listen to what everyone is saying - and then go with the person you feel you can trust the most."

Why Dr. Farjo Became a Hair Transplant Surgeon

Dr. Bessam Farjo discusses his medical background and what drew him to performing today's state of the art ultra refined follicular unit hair transplantation.

Below is a transcript of the hair transplant video for your reference.

"I went to medical school in Ireland in Dublin, qualified in 1988 and was training in general surgery and I did 5 years of that. And that was a time I came across hair restoration surgery, came across a surgeon in Toronto in Canada. And just having a look at what he was doing as it happens, hair transplantation was going through a change, modernization, and it seemed like a very attractive field to join."

Dr. Farjo on the Importance of Educating Patients

Dr. Bessam Farjo discusses the importance of educating prospective hair transplant patients.

Below is a transcript of the hair transplant video for your reference.

"I make sure the patient is well educated on the subject. I try to avoid seeing anybody who's not even read about it and says OK, I'm here, tell me about it. There's so much to say. And there's so many different factors that I've mentioned that go into a great hair transplant. It's difficult to convey in an hour of consultation. So I try to make sure my own website is as detailed as possible. I encourage them to read other people's websites and certainly independent websites. Once they've read everything, and then come in and ask them questions about themselves in particular. I usually show them various scenarios, before and after hair transplant photos and numbers of grafts. And even maybe provide them with patients of mine, there's quite a few of them, to talk to this patient and even meet them in person. People do this because they're enthusiastic about it..."

Why Dr. Farjo Loves Performing Hair Transplants

Dr. Bessam Farjo discusses how he feels when his patients come in for a follow-up after their hair transplant results have grown in

Below is a transcript of the hair transplant video for your reference.

"I still now 15 years down the line, get this big thrill when the patient comes in for the postoperative review and I look at their hair. And they probably see a look of surprise on my face, even after all this time. It's not just the surgery, it's the art of it. It's this piece that you created. And you combine that with a change in personality of the patients, they're more outgoing, they have a big smile on their face and they're just so thrilled to see you. And I think that's the biggest thing, you know obviously being in the kind of practice I'm in it gives me other advantages, I'm my own boss, I work in a field where the surgery is considered minor surgery, there's no significant complications. But still, seeing that face on the patient when they come in and that you've changed their life literally, that's the biggest thing."
