  1. It's a freaking disaster! But hey....the dudes probably "saved" a bunch of money!
  2. Beware of choosing the cheapest priced hair transplant....would you choose the cheapest heart surgeon? https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-6830281/When-hair-transplants-WRONG.html?fbclid=IwAR3yj0RFIROfFss_DOGc1sexNLGIcEOBSKV6xxLsk5osKNjqQ-moUWkxZOk
  3. I would think 99% of balding men don't get transplants....yes for financial reasons, for fear reasons involving surgery and fear of what others will think and say, and maybe some are not good candidates, some just dont care, but mostly IMO it's because they don't want it bad enough. You gotta really, really want this. I've always said "if hair transplants were free, most guys would still not get one"... It's not fun, it's not cheap, it's a long healing process, requires patience, it's a moving target of progression, and for me it was all about pain level....the pain level of looking in the mir
  4. Eddie should find a different doctor than DLR used. Good grief that scar looks hideous!
  5. I suppose there are different types of hair systems, but if it is a system like Hair Club then it should not have any negative impact on your existing hair especially since you are wearing it only for a week. I wore a Hair Club system for about two months and I saw no impact whatsoever on my existing hair.
  6. I would be thrilled if I could sit up in the chair for FUE extraction which takes hours and hours. Hopefully more and more clinics will begin to offer this as an option.
  7. I would think H&W primarily does FUT, but they also do a lot of FUE. It really depends on the patient as far as coverage needed, donor hair, economics/FUE is more labor intensive thus more expensive, and other factors. Hasson/Wong has performed two FUT's on me and Dr. Wong stated if I have another transplant it needs to be a FUE procedure. I will probably have one more surgery with Hasson/Wong and it will be my first FUE. I really don't look forward to the long face-down time in the chair for a FUE surgery and the additional expense of FUE.....but at my age and my surgery hi
  8. Neb....I am happy to see you have chosen Hasson/Wong as your new doctors...and to wait 11 months. Wise decision. You'll worry thru all 11 months...lol....but you can do it! You will be impressed with the entire Hasson/Wong operation. Promise me...when you visit Hasson/Wong you will listen to their advice whatever that may be. Remember they have performed 1000's of hair transplants, and are respected worldwide...and you really have one experience. Whatever their advice...let go....trust them...and let them handle it.
  9. Join the crowd! https://www.vox.com/science-and-health/2018/6/14/17458726/depression-drugs-suicide-side-effect https://www.aarp.org/health/conditions-treatments/info-2018/prescription-drugs-depression-suicide.html
  10. It not quite as easy and obvious as it seems. Of course we need feedback from patients on the doctors and to hear the name of repeat poor result doctors or doctors that don't respond well to patient concerns/complaints, but I suppose it's a difficult balance for this website to decide what is a realistic complaint without actually seeing and interviewing the patient in person. My company has been "victimized" on Yelp by a terrible review by a mis-informed and/or lying anonymous person that was not even a client of my company. I contacted Yelp and they basically said I could respond,
  11. It really depends on you...your goals, your budget, your comfort zone. Years ago I was treated well at Hair Club For Men. They were professional, and their salon had excellent, friendly, helpful hairdressers. The system looked great and was easy to care for. My problem was I could never get used to the fact I was wearing a system. People didnt stare or know it was a system, it was the fact that I knew. However obviously many guys can deal with it and find it within their comfort zone. It just wasn't in mine. One thing great about a system is you can get whatever denisty that looks age appropri
  12. I understand Nebulosity. My only hope is you don't do anything. It appears to me you are a bit impulsive. I am actually really confident if you DO NOTHING...no shaving, no removal, no nothing.....and just leave your transplant alone and let it grow in you are going to be surprised how good it looks in 10 months. Give it ten months and maybe enjoy it for a lifetime. Will you maybe need some additional work later? Yeah probably...but almost all of us do. You must let go and trust that time will make it look much better.....dude you are going to look ok if you dont panic and do something stupid.
  13. Amen to that Melvin. With all due respect (because I actually like the guy), but I think it's quite possible that Nebulosity should have not gotten a hair transplant at this time. Nebulosity seems really ill-equipped to handle the post-op journey and patient challenges that follow for months after almost all hair transplants. I am no doctor but Nebulosity may suffer from some form of body dysmorphia. Obviously we all want to help Nebulosity thru his worries about his transplant, but I think it may be time for him to consider having a discussion with a mental help professio
  14. I would say relatively speaking "money was no issue"...in that I could have went with pretty much any doctor often discussed on this site...and I chose to fly from Texas to Vancouver, BC to Hasson/Wong. Reasons: Reputation for great results, willingness for large size transplants, depth of full time staff/technicians that only deal with hair transplants, nice, upscale, state of the art full-time surgery center, not afraid to show pricing calculator on their website, very easy. quick, informative communications and answers to my questions via e-mail as I was making the decision on what do
