After a lot of searching online for various options for my treatment, I discovered the Crown Clinic with Mr Shahmalak and his teams great reputation. Having seen the celebrity names and positive reviews that Mr Shahmalak had treated with great results, I decided to book my consultation.

On the day of my consultation the appealing thing to me was I actually got to discuss my options with Mr Shahmalak who was first class from the off. At no point did I feel pressured. In fact I felt the opposite with various options ie. Daily medications (which I had tried before) being offered, but I knew I wanted a more permanent solution and Mr Shahmalak was the man for the job.

The day of my procedure was here, arriving at 07:30am from the start I was made to feel very welcome. First order of the day to go through the days’ proceedings with Mr Shahmalak.

Once I was briefed and all ready to go, it was time to go through to meet the rest of the team and have my hair clipped. Once in the operating room where the procedure was to take place we got things on the way with the initial injections for the local anaesthetic (which I won’t lie, were the worst bit for me) a little sore.

With the procedure on the way everything throughout the day was relaxed and pain free with several breaks and a lunch break.

Overall the treatment had been excellent and I was being treated like a member of their own family. The whole procedure lasted around 6 hours (1600 implants FUE) and thanks to the banter with the staff and Netflix the time went fairly quickly. Following the procedure the team went thoroughly through the aftercare to follow and gave me my aftercare pack.

I feel really pleased with how the whole day went and how I’ve recovered from the procedure. I’d like to say a big thank you to Mr Shahmalak and the rest of the team at Crown and I look forward to seeing the results over the next 12 months.

From the moment I walked through the door the staff at Crown Clinic made me feel relaxed, comfortable and welcome. They were quick to answer my questions fully and informatively. My procedure was fully explained to me and I had complete trust in my surgeon’s abilities. Throughout the procedure they checked I was comfortable and explained what was going on. Afterwards I was given my own room to relax in before heading home. When I rang the clinic with a few questions the next day they were very helpful. Great service, thank you.

I have got to say that there would not be enough words to put in this letter to explain my experience. Within minutes of arriving at the clinic I was made welcome and put at ease from and extremely professional and down to earth team. All the anxiety that had built up with dropped straight away. It’s strange but I was made to feel like I knew all the team personally. My thoughts were in keeping the procedure to myself but now my mind has most definitely changed to which I will be recommending the Crown Clinic for basically giving me a new lease of life.

Can’t wait to see you all in 9 months’ time.

The Crown Clinic is thoroughly professional and efficient in every respect.

Dr Shahmalak is a real perfectionist who expects only the highest standards from himself and his staff, who were all utterly charming and helpful.

From my initial consultation to the procedure itself and immediately afterwards, my quality of care was exemplary. I felt very supported by a team who I felt were totally committed to be the best in their field.

My overall experience with Crown Clinic was excellent. Besides been called different names throughout the experience, the consultation, pre and post surgery was ‘5’ Star!

-Dr Asim Shahmalak and his team were very professional. On arrival, I was very nervous but was made to feel relaxed by the team with great conversation and TV throughout the day. I’m 9 days post op and I know it’s very early stages but I’m very happy with the results and really looking forward to seeing the final results in 12 months’ time. Thank you! smile

My entire experience exceeded all expectations. Initial consultation was informative and completely unpressured with honest and practical advice offered.

Pre surgery arrangements were easy to make with clear instructions provided in the week before procedure.

The day of surgery the whole team were friendly and professional – the long day I had anticipated seemed to pass much quicker than I believed it would do.

Post surgery also excellent in terms of ease of contact and follow up visits.

Dr Shahmalak and his team were a credit to their profession.


All I can say is I am thrilled with the results. I’m already waking up more confident, not feeling like I need to hide something.

The staff at Crown Clinic were amazing and made me feel comfortable throughout the entire procedure.

I’m excited to see my results as I know it’s a process and cannot express my gratitude enough to Crown Clinic and Dr Shahmalak with his amazing team.

My initial consultation was very informative and I never felt pushed into anything I wasn’t ready for. I liked the fact that I was left to make up my own mind in the period after the consultation. When phoning with questions I didn’t feel as though I was a nuisance. On the actual surgery day I was made to feel very comfortable and I liked the fact that there was some banter between the surgeon and his assistants which calmed my nerves. I was offered plenty of refreshments and a nice lunch. I felt comfortable asking any questions around my surgery and aftercare. I had to pop back early the next day after bleeding occurred from the donor site but was seen immediately by Mr Shahmalak who reassured me all was ok and asked one of his assistants to clean the blood from the back of my hair.

To whom it may concern.

In 2014 I started to research the possibilities available to me for a hair transplant. This followed on from ridicule in the work place, despite being the boss and abuse from my Children. “Daddy where has all your hair gone” said my 10-year-old daughter. “Dad, why are you such a big slap head” said my 13-year-old son. Both were in agreement that they would no longer love me if I continued to lose any more hair.

I did research into all possibilities both here and abroad. I had read press about The Crown Clinic so went for a consultation.  I met with Asim Shahmalak who filled me with confidence and explained the whole process to me.  I decided not to risk any nominal financial savings that I might have received by using an overseas clinic. I opted for FUE as I couldn’t live with the thought of having a wedge carved out the back of my head, despite the great results this method can also bring.

On the day of the procedure, the team were friendly and reassuring which is just what I needed since I’ve never even as much as had a tooth pulled out, let alone a medical procedure. 

The aftercare was also excellent, which was just as important as the procedure itself and it was reassuring to know that the team were only a phone call away or luckily for me a 30 minutes drive.

I knew that the results would take several months to see, and I was aware of many people on the internet expecting immediate hair after a transplant.  However, it had been explained to me that the short hairs that had been implanted would soon fall out and a new hair would grow from that follicle.  And guess what? They did! It took about 8 to 9 months, but it was worth it.

Dr Asim is a rock star in the hair transplant world! I cannot recommend this clinic enough. The procedure is a walk in the park and that’s coming from a wuss like me that can’t even tolerate giving blood samples at the doctors.  

As for my kids… I never gave them a gift at Christmas that year and told them I’d spent all my money on new hair.  That shut them up. As for my work colleague… he got hit by a bus and broke his leg and now walks with a stick.  Who has the last laugh now!!!

Regards and best wishes,

I couldn’t be happier or more impressed with everyone at the Crown Clinic. From the moment I first tentatively got in touch to even now writing this, a month after my procedure, the team made sure I was informed, prepared, and most of all, comfortable, mentally and physically. They really couldn’t do enough to take care of me and look after my needs. I equally can’t recommend them enough. Thanks so much again, my life starts now.
