MediFin Supports Local Doctor’s Vision

At MediFin, we believe in all our doctors. Recently we partnered with a new doctor, Dr Boudine Lohlun, to make hair restoration surgery more affordable and available to more patients.

Dr Lohlun is a qualified and registered medical doctor under the HPCSA. She completed her post graduate qualifications in aesthetic surgery and then sub-specialised in hair transplant surgery

Here is her story:

Dr Lohlun

“Starting my journey of becoming a doctor, I had no idea what my final passion would be. Medicine attracts an extremely broad spectrum of people with almost all personality types. From the engineering abilities of orthopaedic surgeons to delicate microscopic work of pathologists, to the patience and listening skills of psychiatrists.

The one thing that I think all doctors have in common is a passion for helping people and experiencing the rewarding feeling of changing someone’s life.

Cosmetic surgery, particularly hair transplant surgery has been a big interest of mine. I first became interested in the procedure when my close friend started doing research into solutions for his balding head. Having a receding hairline at 35 years old robs one of their masculinity and self-confidence.

A lot of men feel that they are meant to be strong and accept all the balding jokes, but the reality is that hair is a very important aspect to any man’s features and men should not be ashamed to reach out and do something about their hair. The technology is out there and there are solutions to hair loss.

After much research, he underwent a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) surgery and has never looked back. Being more aware and vigilant of how many people actually suffer from this problem, I was surprised to discover how many people close to me were going through the stress of losing their hair while in the prime of their life. Some patients feel that receding and thinning hair is part of getting old, but for many, this process happens too quickly and too early. There are many reasons as to why.

My business partner, Dr. JC Poewe and I have spent a considerable amount of time researching FUE. I completed my FUE training in Europe and am proud to bring the latest techniques to South Africa. Hair Restoration Surgery is an ever-evolving field in cosmetic medicine and new techniques are being discovered all the time.

The Hairfront, situated on Bree Street in Cape Town, has been a work in progress for over 2 years. We are proud to say that we are finally up and running as a fully functional hair restoration clinic specializing in hair transplant surgery, specifically, the latest techniques in FUE and minimally invasive surgery. We also specialize in non-surgical hair restoration, especially for female patients including PRP, which is a non-surgical hair loss treatment, and Mesotherapy. With top class facilities at international European standards, we are proud to announce The Hairfront.

My desire is to help people look and feel their best. There is nothing more rewarding than being part of a transformation that is life changing.”

In order to help many patients whose medical aids would not cover this procedure, Dr Lohlun has partnered with MediFin Financial Services to provide an additional finance option for the desired procedure.
