Hair Transplant Testimonials & Reviews
“Had the FUE hair transplant last February at the Harley Street clinic. I was apprehensive at the consultation, wondering if it would work, so only asked for half of the recommended hairs from the donor area,1000 grafts (3000)hairs. Day of procedure had excellent experience with Dr.Reddy and staff.Now almost twelve months later achieved good results and will be going back for some more hair.” *

“Had my hair transplant in March 2017 by Dr. Zioga and team. The team made me feel very relaxed about the procedure from the original consultation to the day of the procedure itself. Communication by the team was excellent both pre and post op and having had a follow up appointment to evaluate the results at 7 months later the team as well as myself could not be more happy with the results. Would highly recommend.” *

“Had my operation yesterday and so far so good. The transplant was performed by Dr. Mousakis, himself and his staff were all really helpful and I never felt alone at any point. Would highly recommend them.” *

“If you’re looking to get a hair transplant and wondering where to have it done, look no further. I had a FUE hair transplant with Dr Zioga at the Private Clinic of Harley Street 3 weeks ago. The entire experience from initial consultation, to the procedure day and follow-up care has been amazing. At the initial consolation with Dr Zioga and Becki the patient advisor everything was explained in detail and I immediately felt confident that I was in the right place. Surgery day was nothing to worry about at all. I was honestly surprised by how comfortable I was during the procedure, almost dozing off at certain points. Dr Zioga and the rest of her team were continually asking me if I was doing well, and whether I needed anything. At the end of the day Katerina the technician was very helpful in explaining the after care. In the days and weeks following, patient advisor Becki has been in touch every day to ask how I have been getting on. This level of care and professionalism is simply astounding. I’m glad I found Dr Zioga and her team and I can’t thank them enough. If you’re wondering where to get your FUE/ hair transplant done, do not hesitate any longer!” *

“I am now 8 weeks post op after a hair transplant with the wonderful and muticulous dr Tam. Results are superb even this early, I am so pleased, there really was no pain at all, I didn’t even need painkillers afterwards. I want to thank all the team especially Cat Rainsbury who made me feel really special.” *

“I wrote my first review of my hair transplant in late September, following the procedure to move 4,500 hairs from the back of my head to the front in late January. Today, I had my 9 month follow up session with my surgeon, Dr Kouremada Zioga. It hit me just how much my hairline had improved when I compared the photos of me before the transplant with after. How much older I looked back then! But one key area that I am very impressed with is that there is no scarring on my head whatsoever – testamount to the quality and skill of my surgeon. No little dots in the area where the hair was transplanted from, the transplanted hair looks like my natural hairline, I can wear my hair as long or as short as I want and no hairdresser would ever be able to tell that I have had some work done. I remember deliberating about whether to have a transplant at the end of last year. But seeing the reviews of other individuals treated by my surgeon, and people’s before and after photos helped give me the reassuring evidence and confidence to go ahead with Dr Zioga. If I had to sum up my feelings in one word, it would be delighted. Thank you!” *

“I cannot thank the team and Dr Zioga enough for giving me myself back and more! to get a second chance is incredible, to turn the clock back! The Private Clinic is quality from start to finish. But the skill is the teams care and Dr Zioga’s incredible work. From the start I was carefully talked through the likely results, and I fully trusted Dr Zioga whose passion, skill and art have delivered what they said in full! I had no temptation to save money (and very probably get a bad result) elsewhere if possible, I wanted the best for a lifetime result, and I got that! The aftercare with Lisa was so helpful and calming, always positive about end results, and Dr Zioga’s follow ups were the icing on the cake, to relax knowing what she has achieved. I am over 50, and so pleased this is possible, to be happy again, confident, relaxed and proud of the results. Trust this team fully, they have done so much for me, I will always be grateful! You will get the best advice you can possibly get, and the best result, simple!” *

“I had my first FUE procedure in the USA about 2 years ago with a local doctor. This was a traditional FUE with shaven donor area and performed using an ARTAS robot. Although the procedure itself went OK, the shaven back was very painful and uncomfortable for me for almost 2 months. After doing some research online, I found out about Dr. Zioga and her innovative Unshaven FUE (U-FUE) technique. I travelled to London to consult with her in July and she agreed to consider me for an U-FUE procedure. I just had my procedure done in October and I couldn’t be happier with my experience. Dr. Zioga understood my concerns and was very accommodative to my request to extract as many hairs as possible and transplant my crown and density to frontal areas. She was able to extract 5000+ hairs over a 2-day procedure without shaving the donor area. The procedure itself was surprisingly painless and I am on course for a quick recovery. Dr. Zioga made it look a lot simpler and smoother compared to my first FUE procedure. Above all, I was extremely impressed and amazed by the care and love that I received from The Private Clinic’s staff. They were there every step of the way checking to make sure that I was doing well and attending to every need. I must say that I never experienced such a great deal of hospitality in a medical care facility in my life. They all went over and beyond to make sure I was comfortable throughout my stay. I highly recommend the U-FUE method for anyone who is looking for a virtually undetectable hair transplant. I look forward to seeing great results in 9 months’ time.” *

“Since the first day I came for a consultation I was put at ease and treated so well. I was quite nervous coming this weekend but leave happy and filled with great memories. Thank you all for looking after me and for all the laughs – it was the perfect experience!” *
Albert, London – September 2015
“Being my first hair transplant I was pretty nervous on the day. but Dr Zioga and the team were so friendly they made me feel so welcomed and explained everything so I was able to relax and felt much better. The procedure went very well and felt relatively pain-free thorughout the whole procedure. I am absolutely delighted with my new hairline and is credit to the dedicated skills of Dr. Zioga and the team. Thank you!” *
Ross, London – August 2015
“It is now a year since I had my hair transplant and I couldn’t be happier. It has made such a difference to my life. On September 1st I start training for a new career. The past year has given me the confidence to go for it and I managed to get onto the course that I wanted. Something that I would have never even gone for a year ago. Thank you so much to you all. Forever grateful.” *
Tom, London – August 2015
“After nearly one year since my first consultation, I am very sad today to be saying goodbye.
Since the first day meeting the charming Lisa, who couldn’t be more understanding and showed great consideration throughout all our communication, to the treatment team of Jess and Adrianis, who we’re a perfect team and complement to the treatment experience, we covered many of life’s subjects and much laughter, making my treatment so much more relaxing and enjoyable. Thank you ladies. Dr Zioga, you are truly blessed with such a gift. I cannot say in words how amazed I am for what you have achieved for me. During the treatment I was continually impressed with the way in which you worked on me and for me. Our conversations about family and life we’re also rich and passionate, you are a an incredible woman with enormous talent and strength. I am humbled and eternally grateful for all you and The Private Clinic team have done for me.” *
Wayne, London – August 2015

Jimmy, London – July 2015
“I arrived feeling anxious. I was greeted by a lovely team who put me instantly at ease. I actually enjoyed the whole day – no pain. The professionalist of Dr Zioga and her team is second to none – and I am looking forward to seeing the result in a few months. Thanks so much.” *

Bernie, London – June 2015
“Despite having experienced the FUT procedure with good results, I felt reluctant to have a second procedure, as I had initially planned because the process had been fairly aggressive. Nothing I had not been fully informed of, just more arduous than I expected. The recovery was long and sometimes uncomfortable and I did not get feeling back in my rear scalp for months. When I read about FUE, I was immediately intrigued and enquired at the Private Clinic about the Unshaven U-FUE procedure. I met with Doctor Kouremada-Zioga and she assessed my scalp and the potential of my donor area. I was encouraged by her honesty and frankness with regards to a further procedure and hugely encouraged by the prospect of a less invasive experience. When the time came, I arrived at the Clinic a little nervous, which was to be expected but was soon put at my ease by Doctor Kouremada-Zioga and her amazing team. I felt very relaxed going in and was delighted to discover that the FUE method was indeed free of discomfort, and I chatted happily as the grafts were implanted. I was well fed and watered and able to visit the bathroom when necessary. The whole day passed by quickly and painlessly and I am looking forward to seeing the results as they develop. I would thoroughly recommend Doctor Kouremada and her team to anyone, whether they wished their transplant to be undetectable or not.” *

“David was fantastic & I didn’t feel pressured in any way to undertake the procedure. Very professional” *
London – May 2015
“Massive thanks to Dr Reddy and his team. I felt well and truly looked after at all times, and have made it back to Manchester with zero soreness or tenderness.” *
London – May 2015
“Very positive experience. An incredibly caring and reassuring experience. Delighted with how it went and very optimistic of a great result. Many thanks to all the team for all their efforts and to Dr Zioga for her expertise, professionalism and dedication to my case.” *
Craig, London – April 2015
“In August 2014 I went to Dr Zioga for a hair transplant and I couldn’t be happier. The results are fantastic and the team are great. Dr Zioga and her team are fantastic, making me feel comfortable about the procedure from the first consultation. The procedure itself was fine too. With such a great team it was hard not to feel completely relaxed. Since having the transplant I have been in constant contact with Dr Zioga and Lisa and cannot fault the aftercare. They are easy to contact and any questions are answered immediately.
I couldn’t be happier with the procedure, results or Dr Zioga and team and would fully recommend them to anyone thinking about having a hair transplant.” *
London – April 2015
“Thank you Lisa!
I found your professionalism and knowledge of the area second to none. I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome of the appointment and it was extremely informative.” *
James, London – March 2015
“I had a FUE procedure done a year ago. Everything from the first contact with Lisa, the initial consultation with Dr Zioga, the procedure itself and the aftercare were really all i could have hoped for. Perhaps most importantly, I am very happy with the results and have a new confidence. I am deeply grateful to the FUE Team for their attention to detail, efficiency, skill (its not only a science but an art too) and that they are professional, caring and approachable. Thank you!” *
London – March 2015
“I’m very happy! Looks so much better, much more confidence, and genuinely don’t think anyone has noticed… Told a couple of my best friends and they genuinely didn’t believe me until I showed them the before photos of me last year!” *
London – March 2015
“I’d been thinking about having some hair treatment for a few months, aged 50, hanging in the netherworld of do I comb over or shave it all off? It’s a big step to actually make the call and start the process. My experience has been that Dr Thomy and her team instinctively know how weird and sensitive this whole process could be, they demystify it and with a warmth, humour and a human approach get the results. I’m now 12 months post op, have much more hair than I did, and can make some style choices. Some people over promise and under deliver, my experience here has been quite the opposite.” *
London – February 2015
“Dr Zioga and team – once again what a wonderful experience and a fantastic job. You have changed my life and I’m forever grateful.” *
Dean, London – February 2015
“Dr Zioga and her team are amazing! From my first experience when I walked through the door and met Lisa I was very impressed and assured I was going to be looked after. It was a pleasure to meet the team who were very professional and very kind. As regards to Dr Zioga, she is a genius and absolutely amazing.” *
Lee, London – February 2015
“Merely a thank you for all your kind attention these last two days, and a thank you too to all the team who made things go so winningly, and, on the whole, utterly painlessly. I am chuffed to pieces so far with the new hairline. There is no visible swelling, and the little redness there was seems to be dispersing already, and there was an easy removal of the back bandages this morning. You have made my world a better place, and you can’t say finer than that.” *
London – January 2015
At my initial consultation with Dr. Mamontova one of the first things she did was to change my mind about the style of hairline I thought I wanted. Dr. Mamontova instead penned on me a new hairline far better than what I initially proposed. This demonstrated to me that, as well as having the skills to perform the procedure, she also had a brilliant understanding of what looked right on different people and she was not going to perform a procedure that we both were not 100% happy with. It was at this moment I knew this was the surgeon for me.
On arrival at the Leeds clinic I was met by a friendly and welcoming team that quickly made me feel at ease. Moments later Dr. Mamontova, with her characteristic warm, humorous, friendly and down-to-earth approach, came to greet me to discuss the procedure and to personally check that I had everything I needed to make me comfortable. After this she took me to show me the room where I would be resting and where the actual procedure would be taking place. I really appreciated this personal touch from Dr. Mamontova as it immediately re-established the feeling of trust I had in her after our previous meeting some months earlier.
During the procedure I must admit I found some discomfort with the local anaesthetic injections, but the massager that Dr. Mamontova used helped a lot and she quickly got on with the job knowing that this was the most uncomfortable part. It also helped to have music played that I liked as this helped to make me more relaxed. I must admit that after the injections I really did not feel anything and was in and out of sleep most of the time. When I was awake Dr. Mamontova and I continued to chat about anything and everything, although she continued to keep me informed of what was happening throughout.
After all the hair transplants were put in place Dr. Mamontova held a mirror up for me to inspect her work; from where the hairs were taken and to where they were transplanted. I must admit that I was astonished about how ‘tidy’ everything looked. Granted, where the hairs had been transplanted and from where they had been taken there were tiny scabs, but it looked remarkable and I could instantly see the tiny little hairs sprouting from my new hairline. Despite spending so many hours doing what must have been painstakingly accurate work Dr. Mamontova then took time to make sure I understood all the aftercare procedures, such as medication etc. After this she even took the time to walk me to the door of the clinic to wave goodbye.
A week later you would not have noticed that I had the procedure and everything healed well and now, after two weeks, I think it looks great and I can’t wait to see the final results.
So would I recommend Dr. Mamontova? Would I go to Dr. Mamontova again? You bet I would. In my opinion Dr. Mamontova is an up and coming super star in the hair transplant world. I’d like to say a big thank you again to Dr. Mamontova and to all the team at The Private Clinic. *
Christian, Leeds – Nov‘ 2014
“I cannot thank you enough for the outstanding service I received at The Private Clinic last week. From the moment I arrived you all made me feel welcome and at ease. Throughout the time you ensured I had everything I needed and always went the extra mile to help where you could. Tetiana and Meena, you both removed any doubt I had about the surgery with your professionalism and skill whilst making time fly by with you interesting and humorous conversation. It was very apparent that you really care for what you are doing, which alongside your skill, reinforces that I made the correct decision to choose you for the operation.” *
Adam, Leeds – November 2014
“I will keep you updated with how things are going and pop up some time in the next few months. Please pass on my thanks to Dr Reddy and his team for making my procedure a great experience.” *
London – October 2014
‘I had a FUE hair transplant in The Private Clinic in the early part of September 2014. The procedure was conducted by Dr Reddy and his team. From the time that I first inquired about the procedure over the telephone, through preliminary visits, and during and after the procedure I felt relaxed and well looked after, and felt reassured by the manner of the staff and the atmosphere in the clinic. I was given the information that I required and found that the clinic was just a call or email away should I require advice or have any concerns. I was made aware early on during my inquiries that the number of hairs that could be transplanted – and therefore the result that could be achieved – is limited by the number of hairs in the donor area. In my case the donor area could provide 6,000 hairs, which would be sufficient to cover the top but not the crown. Although disappointed that my initial hope of restoring a full head of hair via the procedure was unrealistic, I decided to proceed with it because I felt that the prospect of permanently having hair on top was enough and that I was in the best hands for the job. Although it can take up to a year before the eventual result of the procedure is evident, I am pleased with the results so far and am glad that I finally plucked up the courage.’ *
ST, London – October 2014
“Thank you so much for everything. It actually became almost enjoyable! Really appreciate the professionalism of everyone here. It is a great thing that you do.” *
Rupert, London – October 2014
“I just wanted to say thank you so much to Dr Zioga and the whole team for everything you have done. From the start of the consultation process, through to the procedure itself and then the follow ups, the whole experience has been excellent.
Given my nervousness around the procedure the team were great from day 1, walking me slowly through the process and helping me make the right decisions around what procedure to have. Once I had got over the initial trepidation the day itself was very relaxed and quick. Before I knew it the procedure was complete and I was on my way home.
“I am so pleased I opted for the unshaven FUE as for me a major concern was discretion around having the transplant done. Thanks to their expertise and some good diary planning beforehand I was able to have the procedure and be back to normal circulation within 8 days.
After 4 month I am really pleased with the results so far and am told there will be more progress to come over the next 3 to 6 mths which is even better.
I am so glad I final took the plunge and do not think I would have done so without the great support, care and patience shown by the team and the ability and expertise of Dr Zioga to be able to carry out the Unshaven FUE procedure.” *
Anon, London – September 2014
‘I started losing my hair nearly 25 years ago and had some strip surgery to fill in a developing gap on my crown in my early 20’s. it worked well whilst I still had a good head of hair but as I got older my hair receded further. By the time I was in my early 40’s I almost had a pefect donut with hair from the strip in the centre and a big gap around it. Thanks to an article in The Times I found Dr Zoiga at the Private Clinic. I have had 2 FUE procedures and am about to have a 3rd. The result has been excellent with all gaps in the donut filled in with strong healthy hair. This has given me so much more confidence. The procedure is easy and straightforward. The team take exceptional care of you and show so much pride in their work. Dr Zoiga and her nurses couldn’t do enough for me making me very comfortable throughout and giving me excellent after care. They were able to perform the procedure working around my hair without shaving my head. Apart from them and my wife no one knew that I had even had anything done. Over time my hair simply got naturally thicker and healthier. I would thoroughly recommend FUE performed by Dr Zoiga and her team at The Private Clinic to anyone worried about hair loss.’ *
Paul, London – July 2014
‘I would just like to say just over 3 months and I am very impressed exceeds all my expectations’ *
London – July 2014
‘I just wanted to say a quick thank you for everything you and your team have done; I can honestly say you have changed my life completely. I have the best feeling in the world when I wake up every morning much happier, the first thing I do is look in the mirror and sigh that sigh is a sense of relief that I have found a cure from all the years I have struggled with hair loss.
I spent endless time researching information around hair restoration; it was proving difficult in deciding which surgeon to work with. It’s a scary thought to let someone perform a medical procedure on your face never mind where the technique involved is so specialized. For this reason I had to ensure I find someone capable of meeting my expectation whilst achieving a natural look. I am glad I took time to research well and found Dr Zioga whom is more than capable to perform this procedure to an exceptionally high standard.
Prior to surgery I was very self-conscious and depressed my hair loss affected my life in every aspect, I literally had no confidence and I couldn’t participate in normal every day activities or sports. At the start of my initial consultation in the first few minutes I was extremely nervous and the process seemed daunting , A few minutes passed of meeting Dr Zioga and her team they all made me feel comfortable and at complete ease. Dr Zioga listened to my concern and there wasn’t any form of pressure throughout the whole process. Dr Zioga was realistic about what can be achieved and I defiantly felt in safe hands.
It has been pleasure to meet Dr Zioga she defiantly stands to her well-deserved incomparable reputation. Dr Zioga is a charming individual not only had I received an highly professional service, she showed real care and empathy throughout in fact each and every staff member consistently went the extra mile nothing was ever any trouble, and no question was ever too much I found each and every staff member at the private clinic is caring, polite and knowledgeable.
Even going through my consultation I had disbelief; I kept thinking can they really deliver what they have said. Choosing the private clinic has been the best decision I have ever made, I am extremely grateful to the Dr Zioga and her team, the procedure was completed within a few hours and has gone better than I had ever expected.
I genuinely could not of asked for anything more, not only have the offered a professorial service they have changed my life in a positive aspect. I’m pleased with the aftercare I received. It’s great to know I can contact someone 24/7 post procedure. I’m actually astonished and speechless with the results, immediately after the procedure I can see the result and felt like a completely different person. I don’t think I can ever explain in words how happy I am, 5 weeks post procedure I can see the difference in my lifestyle. I wish I had discovered about the procedure sooner, it is the best thing to have happened and the results are permanent. I have started to enjoy my life and it feels amazing to have my confidence back. The result themselves look and feel natural; the process has been simple, pain free and best of all no scars. I highly recommend the private clinic from my experience Dr Zioga and her team are fantastic at what they do.
Thank you for making me happy and feel normal again, I am gutted I had not met you previously.’ *
Hassan, London – July 2014

Stephen, Harley Street, London – May 2014
‘I cannot express how pleased I am with the whole experience – this has changed my life! Dr Zioga and her team have given me the best care I could ever imagine – extremely attentive and kind. Dr Zioga is a miracle worker. Her dedication and passion for her work shines through. The results look amazing. I will be back if I need further work. Thanks so much for a wonderful experience.’ *
Mike, London – April 2014
‘I’m sure it will continue to get thicker.. Can’t thank you enough Dr Reddy. You totally changed my life!! I am grateful to you each time I look in the mirror… Also what you did in the crown has worked, I don’t worry about that anymore. Every blog I read about not seeing results for 6 months etc. – none of that was true, I maybe was lucky. I don’t think I really shed any of the hairs but I have noticed the last couple of months it’s got thicker! 8 months after and the results are amazing!’ *
London – January 2014
“Really I would like to congratulate the Clinic, for everything that they have done. From the first time, when Lisa, talked to me, all was so confortable and easy-way. Is wonderful to find a service of this quality.
I could see the kindness and professionalism they put in their daily jobs. All the problems, got a solution for them. Really I had the best words for them.
I also have the best words to Dr. Tommy Kouremada Zioga and all her wonderful team; Dimitra, Adriana and Lisa. They gave me the calm I need, they made me feel as if I was at home. Really, they work wonderful, I never seen this perfection between first class work- service and taking care of the patient as I was part of their family.
Finally of course to give thanks to the Clinic – it is the best of all. I can clearly see how this building and all your team work: Brilliant service, taking care of every patient as we were the most important person for you.” *

“Please pass my great thanks onto Umah; Marta, Shriva and David for taking such great care of me over the last 2 days. I was made to feel very special and very relaxed – 2 things I did not expect to feel during the procedure. The sense of humour, comradery and, above all, professionalism, of your team shone through throughout the 2 days I had the pleasure of being in your company. If I was constructing a team, I couldn’t hope to achieve a better dynamic than the one I saw between you all – I was almost sad to say goodbye! It was a real pleasure to spend time with you all.” *
Patrick, London – January, 2013
“Just want to pass on my thanks to u all at The Private Clinic particularly to Dr Raghu Reddy, Shiva and the nurses who assisted during my hair transplant procedure. I am happy to date with the results and thank the team for their expertise and helpfulness.” *
London – July, 2012
“Very much appreciated the whole pleasant experience. Doctor and staff were very helpful who explained the procedure prior to and during surgery. In fact they went out their way to complete the surgery and stayed till 23:00hrs to ensure it was done correctly. There was no rush and they helped me throughout with any issues. Dr Zioga is an amazing person and highly recommend her – an artist in her own right. Thank you very much.” *
KC, London – 2012
“The procedure was professionally performed. The initial results are satisfying. I hesitated for long before I took the step. I am glad that I did it. Thank you, Dr. Zioga and the team.” *
‘Muchas gracias “mis chicas” Thomy and Dimitria. It’s been a long two days but surprisingly effortless and painless. This is down to the professionalism, care, empathy (in abundance) and the meticulous attention to detail. I would not have made the decision to proceed had I nor had such caring and informative consultations with Dr. Zioga.’ *
