Dr Shahmalak was incredibly friendly and helpful. I felt very welcome and extremely well looked after on the day of the procedure. I would certainly recommend to others.
From the first moment I made contact with Crown Clinic I knew it was the right place for me + my transplant/s.
Dr Shahmalak, Afshan (Clinic Manager) and the team of assistants were/are professional, caring and great at putting you at ease.
At present I am in the early stages of post surgery, however my recovery is going well. It was made very clear to me that if I had any concerns/questions in regards to my recovery/progress that I should not hesitate to contact the clinic.
An ‘anxious’ time/experience has been made so much easier + more manageable by a fantastic set of professionals.
From the initial consultation to the completion of the procedure Mr Shahmalak and all his team were superb. If I need anymore treatment in the future I will be using the Crown Clinic.
Happy so far. Dr Shahmalak was professional, friendly and made me feel confident about the procedure. I was apprehensive on the day but all went well. The team were friendly and helped pass the time. I noticed the attention to cleanliness. The only discomfort was the anaesthetic injections. The 2-3 days post op were a little difficult e.g. sleeping, spraying and washing but other than that no problems. 2 weeks on and everything good so far!
I am in my mid-50s and have been losing my hair for over 20 years. I didn’t want to shave my head as I have a high forehead and feared how I might look. I always wanted to do something about my baldness, but never thought a transplant would really work.
My wife became aware that Christian Jessen had had a hair transplant which she thought looked very natural. She researched it and booked me an appointment at Crown Clinic with Dr Asim Shahmalak.
At my consultation Dr Shahmalak examined my head, fully explained the options available and what results could be expected. He encouraged me to ask any questions which he answered honestly and openly. He advised me that I would needs 2 transplants approximately 8 months apart. I decided to do the front of the head first.
On the day of surgery I was felling a little apprehensive. However, on arrival I was warmly greeted by Dr Shahmalak and Afshan Shafi (Clinic Manager), who put me at ease. They made it very clear that today was all about me and nobody else. I was well looked after throughout the day. Nothing was too much trouble. Afshan even checked me onto my flight, printed my boarding pass and wrote a letter for airport security regarding the metal skin staples and liquid saline that I was carrying.
Before starting Dr Shahmalak took me through the procedure step by step as well as explaining the full aftercare process.
Throughout the operation, which lasted approximately 6 hours, I was kept fully informed of the progress and regularly asked how I was feeling.
After completing the strip removal and the incisions in the donor site, the skilled team of technicians then got to work on preparing the hairs and inserting them into the tiny incisions.
The work concluded successfully around 3.30pm. At this point I was taken through the aftercare process again and provided with the medication and a daily checklist to ensure nothing is forgotten.
Throughout the entire process I found Dr Shahmalak, Afshan and the team of technicians to be thoroughly professional. The entire end to end service was first class and I cannot fault any aspect of the care I received.
I cannot thank Dr Shahmalak and the team enough for a job well done.
So far the experience has been good and I hope the results pleasing. I have previously used Farjo before. They are very good, have a fancy practice and some great machines. But the approach and communication was fragmented.
Dr Asim was warm and friendly and clear from the start. He discussed a long term plan which pleased me and “listened” to my concerns and questions.
Look forward to the results and also working in the future.
From my initial consult back in 2013, I have been looked after by the team at Crown Clinic. I feel that they have always looked out for my best interests. Having listened to Mr Shahmalak’s advice, I underwent my surgery in 2016 – I feel this was the correct decision and greatly look forward to seeing the results. Both pre and post op advice was detailed, informative and easy to follow Mr Shahmalak and his team are all friendly, approachable, willing and able to answer all the questions. My overall experience of Crown Clinic has been extremely positive and highly recommendable.
Consultation - very informative and professional – clinic spotless and clean with well presented staff.
Procedure – Overall pain 3 (0-10). Well planned and very nice polite staff showing serious dedication in their disciplines. Mr Shahmalak is a fantastic surgeon well able to commit to peoples hair problems.
Many thanks Sir.
Excellent experience, wonderful service, splendid staff. Was looked after very well, worth coming from Kent for the treatment. Surely will be recommending to others. Postoperative instructions/supply of medication was icing on the cake.
A very professional service. Staff made me feel at ease & were very informative throughout. I found all the staff very approachable from consultation to procedure. Clean & comforting environment. I found Mr Shahmalak genuine & passionate about his works.
