  1. I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE MY STORY. I HAD 3 SESSIONS OF SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION WITH HIS HAIR IN LONDON IN 2016. THE TREATMENT WAS INITIALLY DARK, AND MATCHED MY HAIR COLOUR. I ASKED FOR A NATURAL BUT FULL HEAD OF HAIR LOOK. AS THE YEARS WENT ON, FAST FORWARD TO 2019. I NOTICED THE TREATMENT HAD TURNED A BLUE/GREENISH TINT AND THE INK WAS SATURATED. AS YOU CAN SEE IN MY PICTURES, I HAVE THE DREADED HELMET HEAD LOOK. THE DOTS WERE BECOMING BLOTCHY, JOINING TOGETHER. I WAS GETTING CALLED OUT EVERY WEEK BY MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC. I CANNOT EXPLAIN THE HUGE IMPACT THIS HAD ON ME PSYCHOLOGICALLY,

  2. I don't believe I contradicted myself at all. The tech's at H&W have massive experience; ASMED's simply don't. They are new in the FUE world yes, but they still maintain the same level of artistry as they did with FUT. I clearly wrote this is "almost" always the case and the surgeon should perform "most" of the work. You have proved nothing. H&W do perform most of the procedure themselves or at least present to make sure it doesn't mess up. I have had a 4600 graft HT with ASMED. The doctor was present for a matter of minutes. He has built a reputation on using an obscene amount of graf

  3. Tend to agree with this. Another thing I've noticed is ASMED seem to take an aggressive approach to temple points compared to a lot of other clinics out there. I recently saw a video by ASMED on youtube where a patient came in for a review and Dr Erdogan mentioned the patient had 400 grafts placed in one of his temple temple points. Now if the other side received a similar amount of grafts, that's in and around 800 grafts just on the temple points. Not an issue in itself however does become a problem imo when someone has had say 3000 grafts or so grafts go on lowering the hairline, reinfo

  5. I had my surgery at the old clinic. They had already hired some of the new staff for the new clinic and began training because my coordinator shared this information but my team had over 5 year experience.

  6. It looks terrible, to be honest. Not only the color, but the hairline design, too. It's that typical painted helmet look everybody is afraid of. Too dense, too defined, huge dots, some blotched into another. Horrible. It looks totally artificial. Is that really done by HIS? Laser it off asap and sue HIS for that crap.

  8. 7th day update : I had my first hair wash yesterday (done at home), following the process in the video sent from Eugenix, which went well. It was great that Dr. Pradeep, and later, Nelson came on video calls to check the progress and also for further guidance on the hair wash itself.

  9. During the past several years this community has fought several lawsuits that were brought by physicians who were upset with comments made on this forum. Rather than compromise, we have fought these lawsuits to preserve the integrity of our community. These legal battles have been expensive. Last year alone the Hair Transplant Network community paid over $100,000 in legal fees to preserve the right of forum members to post their genuine opinions and experiences. The freedom of expression that we all enjoy on this forum is far from free. But the integrity of this forum and the need to h

  10. the conservative hairline with some age appropriate recession makes it even more natural! There is no way anyone would think you've had a hair transplant with your result. I understand we'd all want a more hair, but I'm convinced the better docs know exactly where the correct hairline placement should be. I can't tell you how many cases I look at where people are thrilled to have an 18 yo hairline which looks top-heavy, temples not restored properly, and stands out like a sore thumb. Just wanted to let you know your case looks ultra-natural and you should have no regrets about the conservative

  11. I've tried all these methods, trust me whenever you really need to go out ( work, meet ups, socialize ) only then go out, otherwise stay private for first few months (as this ugly phase bothers most of us ) Now, when you do go out - wear a baseball or other styles of caps or hats. Its summer time and also prevents strong sunlight exposure for your sensitive post HT scalp. rarely after 2-3 months post HT, use dermmatch and sprinkle some fiber ( only for those occasions where you can't wear a cap ) but wash it right after, dont let it sit there for long time but #1 thing t

  12. When I evaluate a patient for hair transplant surgery, I always do something in my mind: Regardless of how much or little hair loss the patient has or how adherent they are or are not with medications, I imagine they are going to progress to a NW VI and I will need to rebuild the entire front to back using only what they have in the donor area. In my opinion, it takes around 5,000 - 6,000 grafts to do this convincingly, and the average patient can do this via a combination of FUT and FUE. By imagining the patient will essentially lose all of their hair and I only have what is available i

  13. I had over 1000 fue done and smp done to hide the fue scarring. Although I don't have pic of rear of my head, it's pretty impossiple to tell I had transplant work done after having smp.
