  1. Ya I also wish I had not gotten another HT. All i wanted was to fill it up a little and I ended up in his office with him pressuring me to lower my hairline. I should've stood up for myself and told him more firmly I don't want to lower it. Worst mistake of my life. What do you think of Dr. Rahal for FUE? I used to see a lot of results from him and they were all really good.
  2. What pisses me off is not the fact that I got poor results from him, but more the fact that he pressures you to do something you don't want. Makes you take a risk you know might backfire and pushes it down your throat. He pressured me to lower my hairline for 30 min when I didn't want to do it just so he could make more money. Any other ethical doctor would've advised me against it even if I had asked to lower the hairline. This dude on the other hand pressured me to lower the hairline when I clearly told him I don't want to do it just in case I need the grafts for the future. I just wish I had stood my ground and had seen more negative reviews of him on this site. I couldn't find a single damn negative review of him when I was researching him on this site. He tells you one thing in email then when he knows you've already taken a long journey and are commited with the non-refundable deposit, he pressures you to do more than you agreed. Fuking scum.
  3. The lesson to be learned is to be aware of conmen in the HT industry.
  4. This is my post about my experience https://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/topic/52265-2600-grafts-6-month-results-expectation-vs-reality/
  5. Dr. Soni thinks it was a great idea. That's why he pressured me for 40 min to let him lower it. How this scumbag made it to the list of recommended doctors here blows my mind.
  6. No Dr. Soni is a complete conman and that's what happened. He pressured me as well and fooled me the same way he did this guy. Agreed on something else in the emails, then in person on the day before the surgery, pressured me for 40 min to let him lower my hairline. Despicable human being. Completely unethical. And you should think twice before praising him. Your glowing reviews of him were part of the reason I succumbed to the pressure of this conman.
  7. I can definitely relate to this story. Dr. Soni is a conman. His only interest is in making money. He's an unethical piece of shit. He pressured me into lowering my hairline where every other doctor would strongly advise against it. The only reason he did this is so he would make more money from me. I had only gone to him thinking I will fill in my existing hairline to get some more density. I was thinking at most 1200 grafts would be needed. This is what we had discussed over the emails and over the phone. Then I booked a reservation with him for the actual surgery and paid $500 non-refundable for the booking. When I arrived in his office, he had a 30-40 minute argument with me pressuring me to let him lower the hairline and make a V-shape hairline. I told him NO, I need to save my grafts for future hairloss because I'm only 29. He said I have enough grafts and I will be fine in the future. (LIE). I told him I don't get good growth because I have done transplants before and the yield wasn't very great. He said he's much better than western doctors because he does 3-5 transplants a day and has been doing it for years whereas western doctors only do maybe 1 transplant a day. He said I will look very handsome if I get the V-shape hairline because the face has to be proportional and some other bullshit. I told him I don't want it because I also don't have money for it. I only came with a budget of 1200. He said "Come On. You are from canada. People come from abroad and get 5000 grafts easily." He said "Your ticket itself costs $1200. Don't you have any relatives here you can ask for money?" Man i was pissed and wanted to leave, but I had to get the transplant done at that time because I had taken a long vacation from work and could only fit in the transplant during my vacation because I couldn't go to work right after transplant. If not that year, then I would have to wait another year and I planned on getting married next year. So I really wanted to do it. Also I thought maybe he's right because He's recommended on this site and people gave good reviews here. I thought maybe he's just greedy but he'll do a good job and I'll actually look good. I thought he does have tons of experience and has videos of small time celebrities coming to him for transplant. All this made me question myself and trust this son of a bitch. I didn't want to upset him by refusing to let him do what he strongly wants and then he fucks up my surgery because he's pissed. So i made the worst decision of my life. Which cost me $8000. 2600 priceless grafts which will never come back. And a botched hairline. He actually made the hairline worse than before. It seems like the previous hairline has gotten thinner because he must have transected the previous hair roots. Now I have a much lower hairline which is very thin and looks substantially worse than before. What's more is that 10% of the hair that grew only grew to 1cm length which makes no sense. They just don't get any longer. I've never seen that before. That never happened with 3 transplants with Dr. Wong. Either the hair grew or didn't, but not halfway where they grew to 1cm and then stopped growing. Thinking about it pisses me off so much how I let him dupe me and not standing up for myself when I was right. We need to start a petition to ban this fraud from this site before he ruins more lives.
  8. Ya I thought the results with Dr. Wong were okay just needed a little density which is what I gone to get filled a little more. I was only thinking of getting maybe 800-1000 grafts more to fill the previous hairline. But I'm such an idiot for letting Dr. Suneet convince me to lower the hairline. Probably the worst decision of my life ever. Lost $8000, 1 year of sanity, and a good hairline. Anyways I also think harvesting from the new 'hairline' is the best option. I don't know if it will scar my forhead though where the extraction occurs. I will go to Dr. Wong to get a consulation. I'm not sure how good they are at doing FUE since they just started doing it recently. But I have no other option now because he's the closest one and doesn't require a flight and a stay in a hotel for me to do it. The most convenient option and least time consuming. Hopefully they are good at FUE as well and can harvest the hair without leaving big visible marks.
  9. I dont know if there is scar tissue underneath or not. I cant see it. Dr. Wong would've told me if there was something wrong physiologically. I'm not the doctor. And i haven't worn a turban since 17 years old so that has nothing to do with the growth.
  10. I didnt know there was physiology involved in hair transplant success. The rest of my hair grows just fine so i don't see wtf could be wrong with me. I'm perfectly healthy. Nothing wrong with me.
  11. No. Still the same. I have to shave the new hairline to go back to looking like how it used to look before the transplant. Wasted $8000 to make my hairline worse and the hassle of shaving my hairline everyday. And people keep asking why I lowered the hairline. They just can't believe that this greedy fu**ing doctor convinced/pressured me to lower it and I didn't go into his office to lower the hairline just to fill it. Well I have the emails to prove it. I had only gone in to fill the hairline. This assh*** kept convicing me for 30 minutes to let him lower it. I told him Dr. Wong's result had poor yield and he said he's more experienced than Western doctors because he does way more transplants each day and has done thousands of transplants over the years compared to western doctors that only do 1-2 a day. He said he's an artist and wants to make me look handsome. Told me some fu**ed up rules about face symmetry and where the hairline should be. It was a pure con job. He charged me double what he charges his local patients per graft. Didn't give me a breakdown of how many grafts he placed in singles, doubles etc. When asked how many grafts he harvested, he says "I told you I put in 2600". I paid him for 2600 doesn't mean he actually got exactly 2600. If I hadn't paid him $500 deposit to book the slot, I would've walked out of his office. Also I trusted him at the end because he was well reviewed on this site and I thought this site had a thorough vetting process before recommending surgeons. The empty zone on the left side still has zero growth and no new hair has grown for the past 2 months. The already sprouted hair are getting a bit thicker and longer. Some hair that actually grew are not getting long at all. They are stuck at 2 cm length. I don't know wtf kind of butcher job he did. This never happened with doctor wong. All the hair that sprouted grew normally with Dr. Wong. With Soni's transplant, 5% of hair are not getting longer than 1-2cm. He said he'll do a FUE to fill in that place free of charge. Well I'm not letting this asshole touch my head again. He has zero experience in FUE transplantation and actually argues against doing FUE transplants all the time. Has no regard for what my hair will progress in the future.
  12. Didn't you read my post? He pretty much made me lower it. I had only gone to him hoping to fill the hairline with maybe 1000 grafts. And i told him i don't want to lower the hairline because i want to save them for future. He told me i had enough grafts left for future and that he needs to lower the hairline to make me look handsome. I would've walked out of the clinic if I hadn't paid $500 in advance to reserve the spot. It's a long story but point is he greatly pressured me to lower my hairline despite my concerns. It took 20 minutes of him convincing me to let him lower it. I didn't even have the money for it and had to borrow the money because i had only gone in there with an estimate of doing 1000-1500 max grafts. At the end I thought he knows better than me since he's a doc and does this for a living so maybe i should listen to him. And because he had good reviews on this site and is recommended here so i had few reasons to doubt his integrity and credentials.
  13. Yes for free. It will be a cold day in hell before an HT doc will give a refund. At most they will try to give another HT for free.
