Dr Bessam Farjo

Medical Director of the Institute of Trichologists, a leading hair transplant surgeon and founder of the Farjo Hair Institute

Dr Bessam Farjo is one of the UK’s leading hair loss experts and hair transplant surgeon. In 1993, Dr Bessam Farjo co-founded the Farjo Hair Institute with his wife, Dr Nilofer Farjo, exclusively practicing hair restoration surgery and medicine in Manchester and London.

Dr Bessam Farjo and Dr Nilofer Farjo carry out more than 300 operations each year at their Manchester clinic. More than 4,000 people have travelled from across the UK, Europe and as far as the Middle East, Australia and the United States to be treated at the Farjo Medical Centre.

The centre has an international reputation for not only using the latest hair transplantation techniques – recognised throughout the surgical field – but for also placing significant emphasis on developing pioneering ways to counter hair loss.

The International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery recently presented Dr Bessam Farjo and Dr Nilofer Farjo with the Platinum Follicle Award. This award is the highest honour in the hair restoration profession and this was presented to the Farjos for their dedication to ultra-refined follicular unit hair transplantation, commitment to their patients and their dedication to science and research for innovating future hair loss treatments.

Not only is it the first time it has been awarded jointly, but it is also the first time a surgeon in the UK has achieved this accolade – and only the second time it has been awarded to a European hair transplant surgeon in over 20 years.

Dr Bessam Farjo is the Medical Director of the Institute of Trichologists and a Past President of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery. The Institute of Trichologists is the foremost professional association for trichologists in the world, the largest provider of trichology training in Europe, and the longest established body of its type (it was founded in 1902).
