Dr. Nancy Shannon Bosley 850 graft transplant



For a while I have had only slight thinning in the left temple area. It was making me self conscience, so I made the very poor decision to have a transplant in that area. The bosley team, lead by surgeon Dr. Nancy Shannon were very polite and advised me that it would look great. Well, eight months later and the region of the transplant is completely destroyed. I no longer have a hair line and every where they transplanted grafts almost all my original hair was killed. I don't know what happened, but I look absolutely horrible. It is as if half my head is "pluggy" looking and the other half is normal. This is devastating. I should have never gotten a transplant. Now I have a scar in the back of my head, and even if I shaved I would look horrible. If you have any advice I would appreciate it. Having almost a completely full head of thick hair, I made this horrible decision. Thank you.

I was told by the nancy shannon that it would look great. I recently consulted another, well known, hair transplant surgeon and they implied that I probably wasn't a good candidate for this procedure, given that I am barely a NW2. Nancy Shannon and the Bosley teamed proceeded without a second thought, without advising me of the possibility of this horrendous outcome. I now either have to dedicate myself to a life of hair transplants, or shave my head bald and show off the scar on the back. It's a complete nightmare.

Sorry to hear about the poor result. You will likely want to consider a repair procedure to fix or augment the initial work. Please take a look at our recommended hair transplant surgeons: http://www.hairtransplantnetwork.com/Consult-a-Physician/hair-loss-doctors.asp.

How are you man? I see you on almost every hair loss forum out there! Your advice is always solid and I appreciate that. I know it is ill-advised to start political or legal discussions on here, but have you come across any way to hold these corporations accountable for there actions? They should not be allowed to do this. I feel completely ashamed and embarrassed for buying into it and it has ruined my life. I am no where near thinning enough to get another operation, according to aronovitz and shapiro... AND, I had WAY thicker hair when she decided to operate on me. My hair line is shot because of this... thick hairs spaced about 1/4 inch apart, I have to rock the comb over everywhere I go. I've made one mistake and it ruined my relationship with my girl, my friends and I'm even embarrassed to see my own family! You don't need my whole sob story... but isn't there any route for justice! My ignorance and stupidity aside, this seems totally negligent on the part of the surgeon. She said nothing about shock loss, nothing about permanent loss of existing hair, all she said was that it would "look great" and booked the procedure. Well, it looks horrendous! Thanks for your time and responses blake! -Eric
