Veteran Pakistani actor-writer Syed Sajid Hasan has had a harrowing experience after getting a hair transplant.

In a video message, Hasan has narrated how an old acquaintance, a medical doctor, had been pleading him for nine years to get a hair transplant done from him. He accepted the plea around two months ago, but found it strange that prior to the “surgery”, no medical tests were conducted.

Hasan stated that a day after the transplant process began, he fell sick and suffered an infection on his head as well as severe fever for 10 days.

“However, the doctor kept assuring me that ‘all is well’ and this is normal procedure,” he said.

He added that during this ordeal, he remained passed out for 15 days but even then the doctor did not consider it a big deal and “kept cleaning the wound with saline water”.

In the video then, Hasan bows his head and shows the wound inflicted on the top of his head during the surgery, saying “Now, this is the current situation. I am suffering a lot, for his (doctor’s) negligence and not cleaning the wound (properly). So is my family. I have been facing extreme problems for the last two months and had to suffer professionally too.”

This is Hasan’s way of spread awareness and warning others seeking hair transplants.

“Go to the right surgeon and do a lot of research (beforehand),” he said, pointing to the wound, adding, “This is what happens when you go to the wrong guy”.

    He should see the skin specialist as soon as possible and always discuss any issue with a few people before taking all those risks. He learnt it very hard way. Recommend

    Wish him all the best for his recovery. Such a wonderful actor and person. What a shame at the above comments from the Indian trolls, probably they are jealous that their Gandhi ji couldn’t get his hair transplant done.Recommend

    Absolutely horrific and very shocking. Sajid Hasan should name and shame the guy who led to this. Infections can happen, God Forbid, but there are active steps to try and prevent them as well as stop them from deteriorating. His head was in a shocking state. Very sad. Recommend
