  1. Wow that facility is a huge step up from their previous office. Very impressed. Looking good man 🙌🏼 looking forward to your updates.
  2. I am the only moderator and I do not delete negative posts. In fact, we have a vested interest in keeping surgeons accountable. Now, I have had to ban a few members who were creating duplicate accounts and were posting with an agenda. This community is like a garden. You have to pull a few weeds for the garden to flourish. I would challenge to say that this forum is the most transparent forum on the web. We’ve been through several lawsuits defending free speech. I’d like to know where on reddit, YouTube and other forums you’re hearing this? We’re the only forum that actually keeps negative threads public. Most forums will keep such threads in a private section.
  3. 🤣 If I could somehow create some magical elixir that could speed up the process. I'd reckon i'd be a millionaire and millionhair lol
  4. Not really, you have to consider there is no shortage of patients. They are enticing patients with the thought of cheap surgery. Now i'm not saying that all Turkish clinics are bad. We actually recommend two Turkish doctors here, but the vast majority I would say 90% aren't doing good work. They can range from awful to mediocre. In Turkey, I would consider Dr. Erdogan, and Dr. Yaman. I have good things about Dr. Kaan Pekiner as well. I will need to do more research.
  5. Man, you're making me want to call up Dr. Cooley haha. Amazing result man and thanks for keeping us updated. I see you had a solid head of hair prior to this surgery. I think my crown is similar to yours. How much has your life changed since having the procedure?
  6. haha I wish I could get rid of the ugly duckling phase. Truthfully, this is one of the biggest reasons I don't go back and have a touch-up procedure. That said, I think a video is in order. I think we need to come up with some helpful tips as a community on how to deal with this part of the process.
  7. Very nice Sean, I've heard that Urdu and Hindi are very similar. I would love to learn French and German.
  8. Stellar results, I am beyond amazed at the density you have achieved. Do you mind showing us the scar? I'm curious to see if it is visible given that your hair is so short. Thanks for keeping us updated 👍
  9. This is true, the fact is that people still view balding as something that happens when you get older. Therefore, young guys who go bald are automatically assumed to be a lot older. I remember not getting carded when I was 27 years old. Now at 34 I get carded a lot more, this is simply because now I have hair. This is a hard fact, that many do not want to accept. This is why hair transplants in my opinion are gaining popularity, and it doesn't seem to be slowing any time soon.
  10. Good choice, H&W are a top notch clinic with a long reputation dating back 20 years. I suggest using our advanced search page to look up real patient reviews from both surgeons. Unbiased patient reviews are the best way to evaluate any surgeon. I also suggest consulting both of these clinics to get a personalized quote and to see who's philosophy you prefer. Keep in mind, Dr. Bloxham is primarily a strip surgeon, his philosophy is different than H&W who now perform both FUE and strip.

  11. I'm glad you found our forum, the best results do not come from Turkey. This is a sad misconception. No, in fact very few Turkish clinics perform quality work IMO. I have never heard of this clinic, that doesn't mean they aren't good, but we pride ourselves on being a forum created by patients and for patients. Do yourself a favor and look at our "surgeons review" section and check out some real unbiased reviews. You will start to see which surgeons are performing good work. Never base your decision on money. If you can't afford to have quality surgery, my advice is save up and don't go cheap. I have seen a lot of guys opt for cheap surgeries, only to be left with having to fork out even more money to repair the bad work.
  12. This is true, feelings may change. I think that a young guy could get an HT at 21 and have great results, but by the time he's 31 he may regret his decision, because of additional hair loss and the scarring which prevents him from shaving his head. These are the type of questions I want people asking themselves before going in to surgery.
  13. 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.
  14. I posted a comparison over a year ago https://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/topic/50977-dr-matt-huebner-at-natural-transplants/
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. No problem man I knew creating this video would come in handy. Glad it helped.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
