Meet Malcolm "Mal" Mendelsohn

Malcolm Mendelsohn

Working in the industry since 1973 Mal is one of the most knowledgable people in the world when it comes to hair restoration and hair drug therapy.

Mal has undergone multiple hair transplantation surgeries and has recently had another surgery performed by our surgeon Dr. Tsounis. You can see the results for yourself in Mals pictures and video. Using our own service and showing off the fantastic results we can achieve is the best promotion of our services possible.

Extra Information

In December 2014 I had an F.U.E. procedure myself to replace lost hair induced by a recent illness. Again, we filmed my procedure and will shortly present my day of surgery right here on our website.

Dr Richard Shiell now retired, was an internationally renowned and highly respected hair transplant surgeon. He was a frequently invited guest speaker at female and male hair loss and hair replacement conferences worldwide. He is the co-author of a book named "Hair Transplant Surgery".

Dr Shiell was a past winner of the ISHRS Golden Follicle Award and Manfred Lucas Award which is the highest honour a hair transplant surgeon can receive from his fellow hair restoration surgeons.

Dr. Shiell has been a lifelong friend and advisor to me since my early days in my chosen career. He has advised me and guided me on numerous occasions throughout my life. I am proud to be able to consider him as one of my oldest and dearest friends.
