  1. I have already given my end of the story to the Administrators here. I will answer relevant to the questions you have put forth and answers to which I presume have already been conveyed to you. But for the benefit of the forum members let me reiterate- 1. Shera had complete access to mails concerning his jurisdiction as rep. But once its in my basket, he has nothing to do unless they need to be followed up. If there is a follow up I wish him to do, he already has all data. You cannot expect me to be doing surgeries and doing all the office work unassisted and then answering here as well. If there is an enquiry from US it goes to the US representative and so it is for Israel/Middle East and Australia. They comprise my office staff and get paid for it. This is how all offices in this industry work and is absolutely legal, not only in India but in every country in the world. Yes, if he were not working for me, and if he were a random person and I shared valuable patient information with him, it would have been completely illegal. 2. Shera is no longer the international representative at Darling Buds. Also his privileges have been revoked on this forum as well. 3. There is no shirking the responsibility for any result- good or bad. It is completely mine. I never said otherwise. Remaining answers have been furnished already. I will continue to hope you do not take legal recourse but give us a chance to serve you to your best interest. Regards
  2. No one is gullible in today's world, Sir. On the other hand I have learnt so much from my patients since I have been in practice and treated thousands. Any information is a mere click away. For instance, there is so much information available on this forum itself, it will take me or you a lifetime of reading. Test grafting has its value, but in select cases only. (I mentioned this not so you can trap me on every phrase that I write, but to give genuine advice.) It is rarely indicated and definitely not in routine cases- cases done in seemingly clear cut situations. Like yours. Though they were a routine 20 years back, today it is done only in burns, and certain scarring alopecias. However, when the second transplant does not appear to have made the difference, and 1000 eyes are on this thread, the stakes are quite high for a perfect result this time around. Skype consultations are useless for review. Good quality pictures are the best- which I already have with me. Surgeons are not supermen, nor should they proclaim to be. I caution patients in each and every video I publish. Out of every 10 people who consult me , I take up just 3. That is my average. Have never given advice keeping commerce in mind. By the grace of God, I am reasonably affluent and I do not seek patients out. One odd patient even in the best of situations will always be unhappy. But bad results can always be set right. So I have been telling you since the very start. Do come back!
  3. Before surgical hair restoration in males, eliciting history of illness is most important. Only routine blood tests are done, but if there is a history of illness like anemia, hypothyroidism or diabetes, an array of other tests may be done and the procedure may need to be postponed. Most people coming from abroad have got baseline tests done and so this is never a problem. Also if they have skin conditions, and we assume that they are truthful, they would have taken clearance from a local dermatologist for a hair transplant. This would have been conveyed to the hair transplant surgeon. However, when it is a female suffering from hair loss, a large number of tests are mandatory even when she does not have symptoms. Since mostly, hair loss in women is hormonal. If parameters of due care in technique are standard & constant, causes of sub normal hair growth after hair transplant can be : 1. Underlying skin disorders (quiescent at time of procedure & history not provided) 2. Scarring (the likely case with this patient). But his scarring is not dense as earlier mentioned (hence the mystery). 3. Taking Finasteride before the procedure that masks miniaturising hair (video below) 4. Not taking Finasteride after the procedure during the hair growth phase 5. Excessive Smoking These are the very basic reasons. Others are in the Video below and the videos linked to it in the Playlist. The same can also be found at- https://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/profile/11162-dr-tejinder-bhatti/?tab=field_core_pfield_10
  4. He was an office employee who worked for the office and collects, collates and marks mails and other queries on social media for me to answer. He is privy to all information of international clients other than North America and Australia. He also handled the chat bot on the website for 2 years. I have explained the position to the Moderator fully. Its a mystery why it did not grow like was anticipated. The scarring was there but not dense as is common in repair cases & in this condition we grow hair routinely well. And he says he took Finasteride, so I am not sure what it actually was. He should be taken up next only after test grafting
  5. Yes. But hair bun needs to be tied loose. hair loss along hairline is not due to long hair, but due to tying the knot real tight. Watch this-
  6. Dear All, Sorry for the delay in replying. The past 2 days have been hectic in trying to get the clinic onroad. With the lockdown easing out, equipment purchases are being made to comply with strict governmental guidelines for surgeries in the post Covid era. There is no doubt that Shera acted very impulsively in sending that mail. And I do not think he did the right thing. After all such an e mail is only sent very impulsively and there must have been a provocation which made him act so. I am sure he felt bad about it later. Shera surely did not consult me before posting the mail. As for me and my representatives, we have been so busy in work, that if you see the forum, we have not been too active in the past around 2 years promoting the clinic. Shera has been on the other hand following up on queries and lending support to those here who needed it. Not that I have not been in touch with the patient personally. We have several e-mail exchanges to-and-fro and I have supported him throughout the journey. Cases do have outcomes like in his case and I have informed him that if ever he wishes, he could come over and I will do the repair. Changing a surgeon every time you get a result which is sub par is not in your best interest. Rest assured we do not work casually and do have a track record of giving results that have been praised very often on this Forum. With one case a day, all care possible is imparted to the patient. And we do repair bad cases all the time. You can check- https://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/profile/11162-dr-tejinder-bhatti/?tab=field_core_pfield_10 His is a redo case and one cannot always correctly assess the level of scarring when a patient is from abroad. (Also, in such cases 100% satisfaction never happens, it not being virgin skin.) I do now understand his case well and empathise with him fully. The clinic he is presently consulting with and which guides him, will only win brownie points through him! Also, it is me who is more pained for him than he himself is. An unhappy patient is not a good thing to have. But then there are limits to which we can go to help. We do not do backstage deals with unhappy patients and move on. Every thing is in the open. Such threads have great utility on this forum and help patients in understanding that surgical hair restoration is not a perfect science. There are a host of parameters not in the doctor's control. This said, I apologise to the community that this sordid saga had to happen; and that it was a genuine impulsive mistake on the part of Shera. I know it undermines the prestige of my clinic which has taken a nasty hit. But we will work tirelessly to set our reputation back on rail on this prestigious highly regarded Forum. For now, I have a governmental inspection before we start work and i have to leave. I remain committed to my patients like always. Stay safe.
  7. Its a tight knot that causes the problem. Otherwise a man bun is very much in fashion! Hairlines are challenging to restore due to scarring under the skin. See-
  8. Thanks, Hans for this! Deeply appreciated. This is a Playlist we have compiled over the past few years, and it will make the task much simpler for forum members interested in our services.
  9. Patients often consult a host of doctors before they go for a procedure. Most patients shown here have had their procedures done with me ( as is evident in the picture backgrounds) and detailed individual procedures are available in the Youtube Playlist- Thanks for following our posts.
  10. Thank you for posting your 15 month final result , rony05. Per your request your before pictures are attached. We had initially planned for 3500 scalp grafts for full coverage on online consultation. However, during the preop consultation, it was noted that the scalp donor would not support that number. 2953 scalp grafts (singles- 414, Doubles- 2218 and Triples/Quads- 321) were harvested and strategically placed to cover maximum bald spots. Our philosophy is maximal coverage with minimal grafts. All grafts harvested were in anagen phase hence the result with even fewer number of grafts. I will advise you to take Propecia in low dosage now.
  11. I feel you are the right candidate for Propecia. Have seen many patients like you who have benefited immensely with it. Hair transplant is always an option.
  12. @yespleaseThanks for the interest. Till such time that 'bablu' posts a reply to your query, you may like to see this video in a Caucasian patient who is now booked for his 5th! ☺️ Everyone knows how the patient per doctor ratio has been decreasing the world over since 2017 and cost per graft has been plummeting! Clinics today are fighting with their backs to the wall to sustain their bottom lines. Hence they more often than not quote fantastic figures of as much as 6-10,000 in the first session itself for Grade V baldness, unmindful of the patients' long term objectives. The fact of the matter is that you could either have all 6000 -10,000 in one go or plant them strategically as baldness evolves and areas that need more are determined as time passes (as progress of bald area patterns is unpredictable) For placing ridiculous graft numbers in the first session itself, when baldness progression is not known, is mere commercial expediency. I have been often castigated for this approach on this forum but having been in practice for over 20 years, I have my own philosophy of hair transplant, and it has stood me in good stead, safeguarding (as foremost) the interests of the patients I treat. You can see many such examples of 'graft loading' on this forum, especially since the past 1-2 years. This is a trend that is growing and will not stop. In this environment what would you think of this patient who has been returning for 4 procedures since 2010 from outside India, and is booked for his 5th, later this month!?! <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/GB85KO-KhMs" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> WATCH HIS VIDEO And do let me know your thoughts.
  13. If I am not wrong these may be the pictures. SMP has come a long way and we do SMP in our clinic routinely for difficult cases where there is not enough hair for coverage.
