I'm intensively researching HT for a possible HT in Nov/Dec 2012. Interestingly, Dr. Pong said that I am NOT a candidate for his clinic as I have only been on Finasteride for apx10 months. He wants me to wait another year and then get back in touch with him.
Dr. Path and Dr. Radha have both said that I am a candidate for HT at their clinics NOW with a requirement of apx 3,000 grafts.
I'm leaning towards Dr. Radha because of her high degree of involvement with each patient as well as the significant reduction in cost (I'm still a Uni student!)
I'm not sure why Dr Pong wanted me to wait when other experienced Dr's were keen to operate now. Maybe it's because he's busy and has enough on his plate, or maybe he has an element of selection bias in his results?

fualopecia,

I'm not sure either. Normally, doctors recommend one year on Propecia prior to surgery if the patient needs a boost in density.

Whatever the reason, rest assured that both Dr. Radha and Dr. Pathomvanich are highly skilled, ethical and experienced hair restoration physicians and you can trust their judgement.

if your wanting to do it in Thailand then i dont know why you just dont go to Dr.PATH,hes one of the best surgeons worldwide and his prices are reasonable for a coalition surgeon and golden follicle award 2010 winner.
most other thai surgeons have worked under him or watched him but Dr.Path has 20 years more experience than them and NOT A BAD WORD said about him only praise,what does that tell you.
i dont work for him and my views are my own ok,but i did have 1 successfull ops with him past 2 years,GOOD LUCK
I am considering Dr. Path in Thailand too, im living in China, can you let me know you had FUE or FUT with him, I know he does great FUT, but i cannot find anyone who had FUE experience with him, is he also that good?

Hi Future_HT_Doc

I am in contact with Dr. Path in thailand, I prob need 1000 grafts to fix my hairline, im 31, and just like my father i have a receding hareline, no loss on the top, and thus I will perfer FUE, would you still recommend Dr. Path for FUE? I know he is really good at FUTs.

this is a old post, i hope you can still get back to me, thanks

This is strange. I had never taken any Propecia when I had my first HT with him a year ago. The only time he asked me to wait was when I wanted to book my 2nd HT just after 6 months.

Hi Botak, I'm also from Singapore, and would like to ask you some questions regarding dr. Pong. Would really appreciate if you could help. Thanks!

Sure, I just had my 2nd HT on crown area with Dr Pong. I've full confidence with him. Unlike most sg surgeons, he does only hair and nothing else. Imagine if you just want to eat bak chop mee, would you buy from a stall that sells only bak chop mee or a stall that sells everything? What do you need to know?

haha. that's a good analogy man. yeah. he told me he only does hair transplants. based on reviews, i've decided to go to his clinic instead of the ones in singapore. here, all the surgeons all kua lui, everything also do
i was wondering about the results. like your donor area and stuff, is it visible? i saw pics of people who had botched attempts by other hair surgeons. like the scar damn thick and visible. you got any pictures? thanks for your reply man!
