With the Hairforlife hair transplant online consultation service, I have been helping women and men to achieve fuller hair through hair transplantation since 2004 and cooperate exclusively with world-renowned hair surgeons, with sufficiently proven results/experience reports.
This time, however, my client is my own brother from Germany, Christoph. We have been regularly observing his hair situation for several years. At every private meeting in Germany or Switzerland, his hair situation, the deepening receding hairline and overall thinning hair was examined by me. The plan was always to leave everything “untouched” as long as Christoph could still style his hair satisfactorily. Despite the receding hairline and thinning hair in the front third, this was still possible with tricks like hair concealer.
My brother’s first hair transplant with FUE by Dr. Lars Heitmann
On 22/23/24 July 2021, it was “finally” time for my brother Christoph from Germany to have his first FUE hair transplant with Dr. Lars Heitmann in Zurich, Switzerland. The original plan was for 3 days of surgery, but due to personal reasons, Dr. Heitmann was unable to start until later on 22 July and 25 July was added on.
Experience report from Christoph Krämer: The key data of the FUE surgery in Zurich, Switzerland
Christoph Krämer, from Germany, 34 years old, NW 3 a – NW 4 a
Area to be transplanted approx. 55 – 56 qcm

Important information: For FUE mega sessions with dense packing, Dr. Heitmann recommends a complete shave. It usually takes up to 12 months until the result of the FUE hair transplant is achieved. Growth starts between 3-5 months, irregularly, varying from area to area. Some already have a clear improvement after 8-9 months – or earlier – and already have the final result they feel, but for others it is necessary to wait the full 12 months for the final result.
We will publish another report on Christoph’s result here.
