Out Of Town Client Spotlight: How New Hair Changed Robert’s Life
Shave-less FUE was the Perfect Solution for This Real Estate Agent
Robert was always a confident person. He got into real estate early in his career, and that confidence served him well – he liked the outgoing aspect of his job.
“I’m probably different than a lot of people, because I really enjoy the sales part of it,” Robert says. “I like to help people find just the right property that works in their budget. It’s kind of like making people’s dreams come true.”
But last year, Robert’s confidence took a hit when he noticed his hair was thinning. “I was only in my 30s,” Robert said. “I didn’t feel like I was ready to have a receding hairline.”
To make it worse, Robert’s high school reunion was coming up.
“I don’t want to sound vain,” Robert says. “But I was going to see a lot of old friends I hadn’t seen in a while, including a couple of girls I used to go out with. I wanted to make a good impression. And having a receding hairline was really affecting my confidence in that area, too.”
Robert had a friend who’d had a hair restoration procedure done back in the 1990s. His friend’s procedure had been the Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) – where a strip of skin is removed from the scalp, and healthy follicles are harvested and reinserted in thinning areas.
“My buddy has a full head of hair now, but he still has this visible scar in the back of his head,” Robert says. “It’s pretty obvious he had the procedure done. And he told me the recovery time was painful and took a while.”
Those things gave Robert pause. He didn’t want to be out of work for a week or more to recover from the procedure, and he didn’t want anyone to be able to tell that he’d had it done.
One night, while doing some research, Robert came upon Dr. Danyo’s website.
“His website mentioned Shave-less FUE – a procedure that doesn’t leave a scar, and doesn’t have a long recovery time,” Robert says. “You don’t even have to shave your head. It sounded too good to be true.”
But Robert scheduled a consultation with Dr. Danyo anyway. And from the first, Dr. Danyo calmed his fears.
“We did an online consultation,” Robert said. “He evaluated my hair loss and told me I was a good candidate for Shave-Less FUE. He really took the time to answer all my questions, and the consultation was free.”
Robert was impressed by Dr. Danyo’s in-depth knowledge about the procedure.
“It turns out Shave-Less FUE is a very cutting-edge procedure, and not a lot of doctors offer it,” Robert explains. “Dr. Danyo specializes in it.”
Robert also liked that Dr. Danyo performs every procedure himself, by hand, without relying on surgical techs.
“The impression I get is that carefully reinserting healthy hair follicles in thinning areas is kind of an art form,” Robert says. “A lot of doctors and surgical techs have the medical training, but not everyone has that artist’s ability that can ensure your new hairline looks really natural.”
So Robert felt confident booking his procedure with Dr. Danyo. He flew in from Colorado to have the procedure, and was impressed with the friendliness of Dr. Danyo’s staff.
“They really went the extra mile to take care of me,” he says. “They even met me at the airport and gave me a ride to my hotel.”
The procedure took place in Dr. Danyo’s sunny operating facility, and Robert was surprised at how relaxing the process was.
“Dr. Danyo worked on me all day, but I barely remember any of it,” he says. “You’re not completely under, but you get medication for pain and relaxation, and I hardly felt it. I think I fell asleep somewhere in there.”
Robert found there was almost no pain during recovery – even the night after the procedure. “I went home the next day, and felt fine,” he says. “A few days later, I met up with some friends at a bar. They couldn’t even tell anything was different.”
Robert was able to go back to work in just a few days. And as his hair started to grow back, his confidence grew as well.
“I’ve actually been doing better at work financially,” he says. “In my line of work, confidence really affects your success, and having this procedure definitely boosted my confidence.”
Eight months after his procedure, Robert went to his high school reunion and had a great time.
“And the best part is that I reconnected with a girl I had a crush on in high school,” Robert says. “Now we’re dating.”
“Do I credit Dr. Danyo with bringing us together? It’s possible!” Robert laughs. “I’m sure she would have liked me even with thinning hair. But I believe my new hair gave me the confidence to talk to her that night, and to ask her out later.”
“If you’re thinking of getting hair restoration surgery done, you should definitely get in touch with Dr. Danyo,” Robert adds. “He takes outstanding care of all his patients. He did great work for me, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to my family and friends.”
