  1. You need to save up or don't get a hair transplant. Any place that will perform a surgery for 1500 euros is not worth going too, and you will end up spending a lot more to get a botched hair transplant fixed.

  2. 2550 FUE grafts by Dr. Christina at HDC clinic in Cyprus Nicosia for frontal area, single grafts only on hairline using microscopes, post 1 year result. ** Please PM for free consultant: WhatsApp +972526542654 Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/326632715435825/?ref=share Instegram: https://www.instagram.com/doronharatihdcconsultant/?hl=en

  3. I have seen some shocking things this past month, not too long ago I saw a clinic schill post a guarantee certificate. Let me remind everyone of the community, there are NO GUARANTEES!! If someone is giving you a guarantee they are misleading you. If you're researching a hair transplant surgeon and you see a bunch of reviews like this, with 5 star rating, no pictures and one review under their name, that is a HUUUUUGGGGGGEEEE RED FLAG! Any clinic that offers their patients 'unlimited' grafts is also a HUGE red flag. This is why i'm so adamant about anyone interested in researching hair t

But under no circumstance is this a place to be offensive. If you have a question as to the skill, experience, quality of one of our recommendations please let us know. But offensive language will not be tolerated.

  6. Why not? He’s a very highly skilled surgeon, who was a consultant in the National Health Service. I guess the question is not, is Dr Arshad as good as Dr Bisinga, but does he meet the criteria to become a recommended surgeon?

  8. Alternate thread title, "Maniac gets 7th transplant?!?!" 🤪 This post requires some background. I had my first FUT at 28, rushing into it without doing my due diligence. I wasn't botched, but I had cobblestoning and multi-haired grafts in the hairline. Thankfully it was only 1k grafts and my donor still had plenty to offer. One year later, Dr. Paul Shapiro and the good folks at SMG performed a game-changing FUT (2,348 grafts), removing the multi-haired grafts from the hairline, creating a more natural hairline and providing a significant density boost to the front. Seeking more density, I

  9. Some decent clinics do exist in Turkey. HLC, Dr Pekiner and Dr Bicer for example. But there is a massive amount of hair mills too. Poor clinics unfortunately are everywhere in the world though. Seen some poor Uk work recently.

  10. This may be against your goal, but I personally don’t like pushing anyone towards surgery. There are no guarantees to surgery, anyone who tells you otherwise is lying. Having realistic expectations is crucial. Understanding that hair transplants are not one and done is another point to remember. Also, knowing that hair transplants will not keep you from losing more hair, so stabilizing hair loss is very important. If you’re not willing to accept these facts, you shouldn’t get surgery. As I always say, we don’t sell hair transplants here, we educate.

  11. I just watched this video, and I must say that based on the comments, I was expecting something/someone way crazier than what I just saw. While I personally would have no desire to get a HT without anesthesia, I certainly believe he made some extremely valid points about how we relate to pain, medication, and consciousness overall in Western civilization. As Dr. Arocha stated above, alternative approaches to Western medicine such as meditation, acupuncture, and mindfulness have not only been practiced and deemed effective by large human populations throughout history, but Western science has

  13. After a week, all you can do is wait. That said, I disagree 100% with the notion “no need to overpay” if this was a television or even a car, yes. But this is your head and your health, you never go cheap on that.

  14. It's really sad to see such cases, it always breaks my heart.... I'm very upset on such people when they say "It looks very natural". They know their word will be always over yours as they are "hair specialists"... And sadly most people are just so desperate for hair that they didn't had for a long time that they settle for this and over time convince themselves it actually looks really good. From what I've seen over the last 2 years it's pretty common, and if you understand how he operates it's really no surprise. They do something like 10 surgeries a day, which means multiple tech teams

  15. I had 4,500 grafts with Dr Arshad just over one year ago and my opinion is that he should definitely be on the recommended list. The procedure was performed in a single day at his excellent facilities in Yorkshire (UK) for a reasonable price and the level of customer service from him and his team has been perfect in every engagement I have had with them. I am delighted with the results and have already recommended him to several people I know. Before and after picture attached that shows progress at 12 months - there are more pictures on my post on the forum.

  19. Now at 11 weeksGrowing well, hopefully the start of new growth now! I can feel more and more hairs coming through, still feels a little bit like stubble.I can definitely see them better with my naked eye. I wasn’t expecting any real growth until around month 3 or 4 so anything before then is a bonus

  20. @jojolux It is really great that you have found this forum as a platform to discuss your situation and receive advice and support from a community of individuals who are essentially experiencing similar concerns. This can be very valuable for you and allow to educate yourself and not rush into anything that you may not be comfortable with. Having said that, please be cautious whose advice you decide to prioritise in this thread. Far more irresponsible than considering medication and seeing how you may respond, would be to proceed with a hair transplant at 22 with your pattern of loss.

  22. If its with the same surgeon and you have planned to address distinct areas across different surgeries (i.e. 1st surgery hairline, 2nd midscalp, 3rd crown etc) I dont see any issue with waiting 6 months between them - as long as the surgeon can properly identify and assess the growth. If its to boost density in the same area because youre not happy with the results at 6 months then its entirely foolish; there are lots of examples of slow growers, so much so some ethical clinics won't operate on you until the 18 month mark. This is of course entirely upsetting for repair patients with obvi

  26. It’s commonly known fact that Kevin James wears a piece, not a very good one either. Looks like he’s going the Travolta route and embracing the bald when not filming. I actually think this is a good thing, as it shows the general population it’s okay to wear a piece if you want too. Thoughts?

  27. Ok so here is the thing with Dr Cinik... yes it’s a hair mill and yes it’s possible to get a good result. But ! It’s no way assured and can really depend on whichever team of techs you have. You can pay more and have Dr Cinik involved In the procedure. But with multiple patients per day it’s obviously limited. And the chances are it will not be a refined hairline crafted with single grafts. We have seen some very recent cases where we can see doubles and triples in the front row. Do you really want to have any chance of a poorer result when you can choose a better clinic.? It’s

  30. I began to lose my hair at the age of 18 and it nearly destroyed me at the time. I had a hair transplant and it was the worst decision I could have made. As JohnAC71 has stated you will find that a good hair transplant surgeon will suggest you commence finasteride. An 'excellent' hair transplant surgeon will not touch you until 25 so you don't end up like I did. Continual hair loss and lots of ugly scars. The point about finasteride is that it will likely strengthen your hair (including your donor) and help stabilize your MPB. In this way you will then be in a position in the future to start a

I told a girl that I saw that I had a horrible mountain biking accident and that I needed to wear a beanie to hide the stitches. Once spring hits we will all be rocking baseball caps anyways. 😂

  32. Hi all, Dr. Arocha here. This is a patient of mine. In fact, he has been a patient of mine for many years. Every patient who comes through our doors is different, and we personalize a treatment plan based on what is best for them. We did not do any work in exchange for advertising – he paid full price for this procedure. Due to the patient's spiritual and religious beliefs, he chose not to do the surgery with local anesthesia, and I respected his wishes. It is a personal choice to take drugs or have local anesthesia administered; although the vast majority of patients choose

  33. I agree with @Melvin-Moderator, sometimes you rush into things because your sold on fake dreams of having all your hair back and how easy it is. Until you realize 6 months later that there is something worse than losing your hair and it’s a botched hair transplant. Don’t be in that situation because it’s not a good place to be in.

  35. Ninja edit: I remembered the graft count incorrectly, it was actually 2325 grafts, not 2125. Hi everyone, I had my procedure with Dr. Gabel on July 29th, 2020. So, not quite 7 months, but close enough. 28 y/o male. You might remember my original post. I asked Melvin to archive it. Posting this one as a quick review to get the word out about Dr. Gabel. I'm not on his payroll or anything, and he didn't request a review. I'm doing it as a happy patient. Just do yourself a favor and have a consultation with him. He's low-key one of the most experienced, talented, and ethical

  36. My story I'm male, 39 years old from Slovenia (not Slovakia:) My hair loss story started pretty soon in my high school years when I was around 16 years old. I've started thinning in my temples and the whole front area of the head. These years were hard for me. I could say I was the only guy in high school who had visible baldness. My schoolmates made fun of me and that hurt a lot. My confidence went down rapidly. Thx God my mum understood me and took me to the dermatologist who prescribed me Propecia tablets. I was around 17-18 years old when I started with finasteride which even improved

  37. You have to ignore all the social media stuff, like you said it all marketing. The only way to know if a clinic is good is to see actual patient results. Not the cherry picked clinic ones. BBC is no recommendation for any any clinic ! It’s a TV organization ! And besides all they did was a interview with this clinic. Start researching some recommended clinics: https://www.hairtransplantnetwork.com/Consult-a-Physician/hair-transplant-surgeons.asp?sr=HRN-MOB I do think there are perfectly decent places in Turkey. For example HLC, Dr Bicer and Dr Pekiner.

  39. Dr. Paul Shapiro retired from surgery and I was living in Chicago at the time, so the switch to Dr. K made sense. SMG and Dr. K are both equal partners in my successful outcome, grateful to them both! My only regret is my first surgery.... live and learn.

  40. I would strongly recommend you reconsider finasteride and minoxidil. Finasteride especially. You had quite extensive hair loss, and the extraction pattern went up quite high in your occipital region.

  41. I have done hair transplant twice in bangalore, both times it was disastrous. I would recommend you to go to eugenix or Dr Bhatti. Don't waste time in Bangalore. You will end up doing hair transplant again and again. Reason is they will make it look so unnatural that you have no option(cannot shave head also) other than to go for another treatment from reputed doctor.

  48. Clinics are safe if proper measures are taken. For example, We perform a pcr test on the patient 24 hours prior to the procedure. As staff, we test every 7-10 days. Ofcourse the other given precautions are in place.
