  1. I didnt look as much in the mirror as i do now after failed surgery and so called repair. This is due to negative comments and folks telling me my hair looks messed up. I also have ridging and cobblestoning/pitting. This is due to unethical surgery performed and it has set me back where I need a proper repair. Looks way unnatural now. It even impacted donor area with density losses around. Totally fucked my scalp up and everyone that has seen me concurs with my assessments. This include everyday folk, professionals, reps, and officials. So, after surgery in looking at mirror a lot to try to figure out how to mask the level of unnatural work and harm on scalp. Even toppik has a hard time helping.
  2. LaserCap, thank you for the kind words and appreciation. I am in the East Coast, NJ area.
  3. Hindi, Punjabi, Pashto, Balochi, Sindhi, Spanish, some French, some Arabic. Working on Farsi. Some of the languages here have similar words so it is easier to pick up. :)
  4. Sorry to hear this but this result did not hit its intended goal I believe. If you decide you need to tweak this, then you will need a refinement procedure by a very ethical doctor. Be careful with using too much donor for too little recipient zone. Id say if you need to, find someone that does manual fue as you have different texture hair. Have you consulted with Dr Keser? Get a few consults from few surgeons from the area. But know this, your scalp still looks better then other folks who have gone through a procedure. I know as i am a repair patient that is still in need of a repair that resolves the issues created on my scalp. It is very upsetting but you just have to be careful and make sure they do the surgery ethically.
  5. Well, it’s not clear cut. Definitely should be taken very seriously as it is surgery. Very few docs probably do this surgery ethically with an ethical surgical protocol. Im harmed and still harmed and waiting to get out of this situation. I didn't deserve this and no one does. It is the most painful thing to go through. Just want this to be over with soon. Folks want to see me in person, feel free. I am just a war Veteran trying to get this situation resolved due to the krap done to my scalp. It’s taking a toll and trust me a lot of folks concur here including multiple professionals that have seen what was done. Folks may need to think twice to sit and talk to a smiling doctor nodding to everything and acting like your result will be high density or showcase or that their FUT yield matches their FUE yield or whatever they want to make claims for. if you start this journey, Document and record every goddam thing. Talk to multiple surgeons that may give you multiple options. Do not fall for the marketing. Just try to meet real patients that are not clinic pushed, but self reporting individuals. See if they can meet you in person and DO MEET REAL patients in person. The more you meet that have similar hairloss as you and hair texture as you, the more you will realize what may Possibly be achievable if all goes well. Best of luck to all that do go for it but if you do just be really careful. Not everything is open and honest and clear ad it seems.
  6. Thanks man! 9 languages and counting! It is pretty rare but it helps folks throughout the world when it comes to Hair Transplant advice.
  7. Work looks clean and scalp is not overly bloodied as it is with some other surgeons. This looks very clean and will probably look good when grown out. So far so good and can’t wait to see this one grown out. Happy growing
  8. At this point we can agree whatever it is, his hair looks good and better than most transplants as it looks natural. His hair looks Wayyyy better than mine and mine was supposed to be high density.
  9. Does that mean Dr Feller is among from the list that has changed now? I thought his name meant great quality work?
  10. This is a distinct change that fits in line of realistic expectations patients with this level of loss and patter may have. This is a success and kudos to the doc!
  11. Clearly that result needs repair but please be careful. i can understand what your goin through as my situation is shit as well. I really think you need to get consults from a few more docs before you decide just to get an idea on what the common treatment plan may be. Its frustrating and very sorry to see you goin through this. Best wishes and i hope you get it resolved based on your original treatment goals.
  12. If you really need to get a hair transplant done, consider maximizing with strip first then possibly fue later. A screwed up fue job will creat patches in donor and create plenty of scar tissue all around. Including ridging and cobblestoning if done unethically. Trust me on that, i happen to know this all too well.
  13. No, supplements and special shampoos arent really needed. however, some shampoos can amplify the hair to make it look thicker like Nioxin. The oiler the shampoo the thinner it will make your hair look. But i wouldnt suggest any enhanced shampoo till like your done with the growth phase of your surgery . then you have some vitamins that may help with health of your hair maybe but not with added new growth. Biotin, omega 3 fish oils, vitamin d3, etc. taking care of your health in general, no drugs, no steroids, no smoking, proper diet can help you not shed hairs. best of luck with everything
  14. Definitely looks like a hairpiece. Some hairpieces these days are beyond unbelievable. You can hardly detect them and they do custom cutting around them and make them blend well these days
