  1. Hairthere, are the three sessions done at once the same day? Or do you have to come back in another day?
  2. Absolutely fantastic! Looking great! Didn’t burn the bank either. Spot on and definitely suits you! You made a great decision Luke. And To think some folks are spreading fear about Turkey, here is a successful result that cant be had for the amount paid in most other areas of the world.
  3. I guess every doctor has a different business models when it comes to deposits. NHI, Mohebi, Rahal, Wong, Limmer($500 deposit), etc have refundable deposits that are refundable closer to the surgery date. They don’t have any concerns with it. I understand there are standard terms to be paid by x number of days, but here it seems as if there were negotiations on when a person could pay and flexibilities. It seems it was the office staff etc that did not believe a payment was on the way that they had to cancel and fill a spot. It’s not easy moving large sums of money, there can be issues unforseen. But at the end of the day, we all do not know exactly what correspondence took place as the clinic did not provide any input. If they did without patient approval to any party, it would’ve been a violation of HIPPA. At the end of the day, hope legend is able to get an earlier date and proceed with his goals.
  4. Wasn’t it trying to get money to the doc with other discussed terms but the rep cancelled the procedure on behalf. Has the doc or their clinic informed that this was the case already?
  5. Legend, very sorry to hear this bro. I know you really were waiting to get this done and really anticipating this. I just wish they gave you some more time since it was scheduled for 11/19. They probably have a replacement for that day already seeing how far out he is booked. I hope there is a cancellation so that you can get an earlier slot. One year out is quite long. $1000 is a lot for most of us. Office staff should be more understanding. Most likely, if you were cancelled another replacement was assigned for that day anyway. Still a couple days to go. That deposit should have secured you till 11/19. If you didnt show or pay by that date, then that $1000 forfeit is justified. The deposits are usually to hold that day for you, if no one shows then a clinic usually takes the deposit as a result of loss for that day. In any case, i hope something works out for you. Wish you the best man.
  6. Melvin, were Payam’s posting privileges taken away for these last couple days? It seems he is able to post now.

    Dense Packing

    Spot on, anything over 55cm2-60cm2 and you are in high risk zone. If you have medium to thicker caliber hair, you are even at a higher risk as your grafts will fight to get blood supply. Trust me, density should be done safely on all patients. Lots of priceless grafts can go to waste. Then imagine the scar tissue bullshi you have to deal with when you are in need of a repair or repairs. Aside from that if you have weaker hairs, they may not even survive extraction. In the end, sales will be sales for some professionals and ethics and standard of care will be what some other docs seek. Do not fall for all the hype and misinformation presented by some clincis and docs. Best of luck for anyone that gets a procedure but definitely weigh ootions very carefully. Talk to multiple docs too and get muktiple opinions.
  8. If being honest, Not really, all eyes are literally on on scalp. If it isn’t natural looking,you can really get nailed,slammed, etc. Very hard at times to figure out how to manage your day. When questions are asked and your insulted, it isn’t a great feeling. Fml
  9. No one should give you a figure of 2500 grafts to make you think it is even doable with that amount of grafts. Your in for the long haul and at least looking at 5000 grafts to start off. Your expected cost should be at least based off of a 5000 graft procedure.
  10. HLC is around 3 euro a graft? What about Dr Demirsoy? How much is he and does he do complete manual fue? Any of these doctors confident in working on repair patients too or only virgin scalps?
  11. Pull out if you have any doubt. Never go in if you feel uncomfortable. Later on you will be doubting it if you do not yield well and some forum folks may slam you for it. See if you can get 100% manual fue nice and slow vs other extraction methods. I feel that really limits the amount of risk as there are multiple risks as is. Maybe that might be a safer approach. Best of luck.
  12. Id hold off any surgery for now. You have native hairs that seem to be on their way out. Any surgery around that area can permanently shockloss the area so it would look the same pre surgery or worse. Wait as long as you can with concealer. Finasteride may help retain those hairs but you wknr see actual effecta of finasteride until a year later. Trust me, it can be really scary if you lose more hair then you would gain at this stage after surgery. Best of luck.
  13. Just got an email with REPLICEL’s CEO message: ”We now have a well-capitalized, very motivated partner developing and commercializing products with us in greater China, we anticipate hearing sometime soon about the clinical results from the Shiseido-sponsored hair loss study in Japan, and we are now months away from having commercial-grade units of the dermal injector in our hands.”
  14. If they no longer respond to him, then it is unlikely they will respond here anytime soon.
