Wonderful Drew! Your results remind me of a Young Jotronic after shaving his head. CONTRATULATIONS on your latest procedure. You are a trooper indeed. The HT world will be following your results.
Jim

Drew, I don't mean to dwell on the past, but considering your session sizes with Dr. Wong, I would have expected much better results from those strip surgeries (as I'm sure you did). Did the clinic feel your results were up to par? Also, was your donor area tapped out for another strip session?

You aren't the first to say this to me.


I didn't want to go through another strip surgery anyways.

And even if only 50% of the grafts grow, from Dr Umar's surgery, I still would end up with more grafts than what Dr Wong said he could get in a 3rd surgery.


So my only recourse was to ask for a refund and I didn't do that.

I am moving on.

Hey Drew, I understand. At least you had a base to start with for your surgery with Dr. Umar. Good growing to you and please keep us updated on your results.

Drew,
Here's my 2 cents if you don't mind. This of course is a subjective thing, a matter of opinion. Considering where you came from, your results are excellent. Certainly, wearing your hair short will magnify any lack of density. It also appears to me that your hair is rather fine, which will also contributes to the appearance of thinness. My point in this isn't to cheerlead for Dr. Wong (Lord knows I've done enough of that through the years) but to hopefully give you a well deserved boost. I'm not sure if you need that, but those are my thoughts. I really do think your results are great. All the best.
Jim

Jim, Sorry, I have to respectfully disagree with you on this one. Let me preface this by saying I think H&W do amazing work, and their results, yours included, are usually worthy of a "Wow". But Drew's results from 8,585 grafts are not acceptable, IMHO. Obviously Drew wants to just move on from this, so I'm not going to badger him for details on exactly what happened here. I do think this is a good cautionary tale for guys with high NW numbers. Restoring a NW 6-7 can be very difficult and costly. I do hope this last HT gets you to where you hope to be Drew...

Hairthere,
Unacceptable, by definition, means poor yield as I don't think the graft placement can be questioned. Personally, from Drew's pictures, I don't believe the yield is poor. On the other hand, I can't say for certain. This is between Drew and Dr. Wong. Bottom line:

I do hope this last HT gets you to where you hope to be Drew...

Amen.
Jim

Jim, I agree, I don't think this was a case of poor yield, nor was it a case of doctor/tech error. I do question whether or not, given the patient's donor characteristics and high NW number, he had reasonable expectations, and if the clinic promised him something they couldn't possibly deliver on. That being said, I'm going to stop posting on Drew's thread as he is moving on.... take care!
