Hair Loss Story

  1. Gatsu, Looking good man. Your journey with hair looks complete. Congrats. This is how a hair restoration outcome should be.
  2. Melvin nailed it and I completely agree. Definitely consider the meds first. You definitely do not want to chase surgeries. Best of luck.
  3. Considering your original level of loss, this is fantastic work and it seems to be holding up well. Some folks wish they had satisfaction like this. Great stuff Bill! Lookin good.
  4. You have native hair scatterred in areas where you have receded. Doing any surgery is risky because you can end up chasig repairs. If hair is planted in between areas where you have wxisting native hairs, the surgery cna cause shockloss to your native hairs. This can make it seem like nothing was done when your hair grows out. If you can so so safely, see if concealer works for you, if finasteride and rogaine can help best of luck with everything . It is a hard decision but some folks wish they can turn back time.
  5. Melvin, I see what you are saying. There is a mix and match I guess. There are some posters on forums that only show the positive side too (due to deals with the surgeons). If the poster did have an issue, they would speak to surgeon behind the scenes and get it fixed in exchange no negative press was given on forums (or mention of anything, repairs and etc online). As a result, some may get discounted surgeries in future so they remain quite. I know a lot of those guys on the forums too. You wouldnt even know the folks that had touchups but presented their online posts as if thy only had one surgery. The amount of complaints going to FTC and state med boards have been on the rise (hair transplant+repair related). I am also aware of that through folks I know. I guess when you are a repair case/damaged, most repair patients reach out to you more and more. So, sometimes we may not know what is the exact percentage of successful surgeries vs negative ones. You have some mentors and radio hosts that say hair restoration surgery should be a last resort. I guess it is because of the risks involved and touch ups that may be needed. Some folks say is probably best to use meds first and then see if you really need a procedure. Once your cut and scarred, the game changes and it could make things worse. There is no going back. It is a tough decision but folks should definitely look for options that may be reversible first vs surgery as a starting point.
  6. Dr Devroye, This is fantastic work. You used limited grafts to achieve great coverage for the crown. The crown was nearly gone, but you bought it back. Thanks for sharing.
  7. Hairthere, how is your week like? Are you in the city and do you do consults? Can we talk?

    Surgeon missed a spot...

    You may want to consider filing a report against the surgeon via the medical board of the area you reside in. You definitely should get a refund if this result is terrible. With Bosley they probably will not refund that’s why complaints are important not only to the med board but also to FTC for marketing f r a u d . Take photos regularly to keep steady documentation. I would not want this guy to touch my head or do a touch up if his attention to detail was so low the first attempt. Unbelievable those Bosley folks still have not learned, but it is up to you if you want to repair it later. Repair is the worst thing a patient can go through. Best of luck with everything.
  9. From experience, I now believe that surgery that is completely manual is the only way to go for FUE.
  10. Risk is still a risk and no one can predict if it happens to you or doesn’t. It can totally mess up the procedure if it happens. There are top surgeons that had patients document necrosis across forums. Goal is to detect it aoon so it can probably be treated effectively then to have it treated later. Best of luck.

    Feller and Bloxham Posts

    Sometimes it better to have a doctor that is a straight talker from the beginning and tell you realistically what he/she can do, instead of doctors, that lead you to believe things will be this and that through elaborate marketing and head nodding in consultation meetings when you mention your goals and concerns. Dr Feller is a straight talker, but i think he has limited powers to what he can say if few paying docs go against him. He doesnt post on here as much though. I have noticed that myself.
  12. Dr Wong is probably a good place to start when it comes to advanced repair techniques. Heard his Ethics are top notch. Good luck.
