Patient Feedback

Dr Chan cared about me – not about how much money was in my wallet!

Patient treatment:

  • 912 grafts to improve density of frontal area

I started to lose some hair in my early 20s. While the progress was slow I got sick of the stress and worry and decided to do something about it.

I decided to look into having a hair transplant done, having come to the realisation that a lot the gimmicks offered by a lot of the large companies did not provide the results promised. I did extensive research into HT clinics around Australia and decided to go and see Dr Chan at AHTI as they seemed the most professional.

I was very apprehensive about the whole thing at first. I was particularly concerned about the recovery and whether I would be able to get back to work quickly etc.

As soon as I met with Dr Chan a lot of my anxiety subsided. Dr Chan took the time to explain everything to me in a clear and easy to understand way. He was also very honest with me about what I could expect in terms of the procedure and the results. At no stage did I feel pressured or like Dr Chan was trying to “sell” something. I felt like I was with a real Doctor who wanted to help me.

As the surgery approached, i was still understandably nervous. However, on the day, Dr Chan and his staff took great care of me. They went out of their way to make everything as relaxing and smooth as possible. The whole procedure was painless and aside from a bit tired afterwards, i felt fine that night and in the days that followed and just spent my time catching up on sleep and relaxing. In fact, I had the procedure on Thursday and was back at work on the Monday afternoon, felling pretty much 100%.

Now I am just looking forward to seeing the results.

Overall, the whole experience was so much easier and less painful and scary than I initially feared. I felt that I was in good hands and was always treated with kindness and the utmost care. To anyone trying to decide where to go I would say go to AHTI where they cared about me, not my wallet!

Dr Chan is honest… And his work is the best I have ever seen!

Patient treatment:

  • 667 grafts (scalp hair) to restore the crown area and repair the scar from previous strip surgery
  • 824 grafts (chest hair) to continue increase coverage of the crown area

I have had 5 hair transplant procedures with four doctors. The first two were strip procedures and then FUE body hair transplant. What sets Dr Johnathan apart from every one is the extra care he takes in his procedures. You can tell he is proud of what he does but also sits the patient down and tells him the truth, what can and can not be achieved. He is very honest and does not play on peoples insecurities.

I personally have found who will work on my transplants from now on and recommend any one considering a surgery to speak to Dr Johnathan as he will be totally honest with you and his work is the best I have seen.

I absolutely LOVE them

Patient treatment:

  • 350 grafts to improver the shape of both eyebrows

Hi Dr. Chan,

Its been a while and I have been wanting to send you this email for a long time, but I just never seem to have the time to compose what I want to tell you.

It’s now been over 2 years since my eyebrow transplant, and I absolutely LOVE them./p>

I actually don’t think a week go by without a quick though of you and how much this changed my appearance and life. Before I would always worry about having no makeup up, go swimming, go on holidays etc because of how poorly my eyebrows looked. I have always believed that eyebrows really shape your face, and looking back at old pictures now the difference is outrages! The hairs have gotten much softer and not so bushy as they were just after the transplant, even though I still have to trim them and look after them regularly and I am still using gel to style them every morning. But I am thrilled and feel fantastic and just thought I should send you this email and say thank you 🙂

Have a lovely week.

Kind Regards,

I just regret..haven’t done it earlier!


  • 426 grafts to reshape and improve density of both eyebrows

Hello my favourite doctor

I doing very well in my recovery process. It’s been more than two weeks after my procedure, my eyebrow, getting better and better. I just regret, why i haven’t done earlier, instead of suffer with unnatural looks.

You are guys doing such professional job. The time under anaesthetic, I feel good no pain. I just had relaxing time, i was heard you talking about which hair, how much hair is still etc. The most important thing is I felt confidence in Dr Chan – soft, gentle movement around my forehead. When we finished everything was ready for me, bag, medication and instruction what to do include details, just in case any infection. My recovery went so well, the day after I went to school, work, apply make-up. I guess I look even better than before. Kind of 3 dimensional look, definition on my eyebrow, finally hair, not imagine make-up create hair.

My poor English doesn’t allow me say thank you, and how much i would recommend this magic operation to change life, to feel natural about yourself, following your desire to fix up, what can be done
