  1. That’s a great idea. In fact, I’m gonna create a poll on here, now I’m not expecting everyone to answer, it may provide some unbiased information for anyone researching.
  2. I posted a comparison over a year ago https://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/topic/50977-dr-matt-huebner-at-natural-transplants/
  3. Wow that is shocking. This is the type of thing I want anyone who visits this community to AVOID AT ALL COSTS. By chance do you still have the quote? It would be awesome if you could post it on here so everyone can see.
  4. There is no denying hair transplants are getting more popular, but now patients are going by Instagram and fancy advertisements. I live in Los Angeles, the amount of plastic surgeons that simply put "Beverly Hills" in to their practice name and think that this is some how supposed to be a plaque of excellence is astounding. What are your guys top 3 reasons for hair transplants becoming popular? How do we educate the masses? I'd love to hear some thoughts. 3 Reasons Why Hair Transplants Have Grown in Popularity
  5. Haven't heard anything about them, not every low-cost clinic is bad, but there are a lot of black market FUE clinics that are popping up especially in Turkey. If your main concern is cost, my advice to you, save money and start researching once you have enough funds. Never let money be your deciding factor.
  6. The problem was they used grafts in the crown. They should’ve focused on one area the hairline. Afterwards you could focus on the midscalp and lastly on the crown. All is not lost, I’m glad you found our forum, because now you can look at real reviews and see who’s doing good work. Consult with as many surgeons as possible. Use our list as a guide, but always go by the results you see on our surgeon review section.
  7. No problem man I knew creating this video would come in handy. Glad it helped.
  8. What relevance does this have to do with this patients results? If you want to make these statements, please create a thread of your own and do not go on threads where patients are presenting their results. This completely detracts from the purpose of the thread. This will be my last reply on this subject. If you have any further questions please send me a private message.
  9. The top pictures are before surgery? It looks like 4,200 grafts have been spaced through the entire scalp. How many grafts were placed in the crown? I agree some better quality photos are necessary. It doesn't look unnatural which is good, I have never heard of this surgeon before.
  10. I was asked this a couple of days ago via PM. While many in the industry like to downplay surgery, I think we need to remember that it is a surgical procedure, and should be taken seriously. I notice a lot of guys shopping for surgeons like they'd shop for a new TV on Amazon. The difference is a TV you can return, a bad hair transplant stays with you wherever you go. What do you guys usually tell guys who are interested in having a hair transplant? I'd love to hear the communities input. Should I Get A Hair Transplant?
  11. You're definitely not a class 7, I would classify you as a norwood 5a, you have high sides which is great. How many grafts you need depends on your goals. I would say that for a complete restoration, you would require around 6,000 grafts. However, 6,000 grafts in one sitting is dangerous and not recommended. You will likely need more than one surgery to address the front and back. Do your research. Go on our our surgeon review section and look up real patient reviews. Find the surgeons that are doing good work. Never base your procedure off money or location.
