Especially among men, it’s hair-raising to imagine premature hair loss. It’s one of men’s biggest enemies, and I’ve seen quite a few people whose solution to it are wigs and weaves, which do not really look natural. There are also topical solutions and supplements available in the market, but not all of these are suited for everyone. Good thing then that MAXiM hair restoration is now offered here in the Philippines so that local guys have another option for a long-term and permanent solution to hair loss.

Established in New York City, the 13-year-old international hair transplant clinic offers hair transplant procedures, from the advanced no-stitch, no linear scar technique called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) to the conventional hair transplant technique known as Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT). Both enable clients to grow back their own hair via hair transplantation, where hair is harvested from a donor area and then hair grafts are placed on a bald spot. MAXiM also offers Scalp Micropigmentation, a non-surgical method that produces a short buzz-cut look without the client undergoing an actual transplant.

Staffed by plastic surgeons who are assisted by certified nurses that also serve as hair technicians, MAXiM Manila’s clients include professionals, international models and entertainment/sports celebrities, including balikbayans and overseas workers who choose to have hair transplants for personal and professional advancement.

PBA legend and team manager Alvin Patrimonio is one of the clients who went to MAXiM to find a permanent solution for his thinning crown. “I was losing my hair so I took medicine and applied topical treatments, but they didn’t work for me. I heard about MAXiM, researched about it, then visited their clinic. The director, Mr. Mac Fadra, their country manager, Mar Sabillo, and hair transplant plastic surgeon Dr. John Ocampo all explained the procedure [I needed] to me,” he shared during the clinic’s press conference. “And to be honest, I am really afraid of surgeries. During my playing years, I refused to undergo any surgery. But the people in MAXiM showed me how the procedure would go and showed me photos of their successful and happy clients, so I decided to give it a try.”

“Finally, I had the guts to undergo hair transplant, and I’m glad that I did. During the procedure, I was watching TV or playing with my cellphone; there was no discomfort at all. Afterwards, the post-surgery hair care routine was explained to me. It was easy and hassle-free, very easy to follow. Now, seven months later, I am really happy with the results. I no longer feel insecure whenever the TV cameras focus on me. I would definitely recommend the procedure to my friends. The results are permanent, and the hair on my head is all mine.”

“MAXiM is focused and super-specialized on hair restoration that’s why we do it well. The center specializes in MEGA Sessions where patients can get 4,000 hair grafts in just one visit instead of multiple visits. Prices are also affordable,” added MAXiM director Mac Fadra.
