  1. Hey Mav, I had to sign a confidentiality agreement where I'm not allowed to disclose the details. I appreciate all your support. Corey
  2. Thanks to everyone who followed along on this thread and offered their feedback. I appreciate all the honest opinions. As some of you noticed, I edited the name of this thread. It is clear that I had a different expectation for the procedure. I do value Dr. Hasson’s work and by no means do I think I’m a typical case. I appreciate the efforts made by Doug at H&W to help Dr. Hasson and I reach a mutually agreeable conclusion. I’m looking forward to moving on from this experience.
  3. Thanks for the community’s support. I’m still in shock over David’s last post. Let me explain why… David said “Despite Corey being on Propecia for a number of years before surgery he was still loosing hair - a fact that he admitted on his consultation form at the clinic. His loss was not stable and Dr. Hasson believes that he has probably lost hair since the surgery and will continue to lose more hair in the future.” Yes, David, I declared my hair was still thinning on the clinic’s form but I said it was thinning SLOWLY. My crown thinning took 9 years to develop. I have no idea ho
  4. I tried to post it two times, and a pop up came up said the moderator has to review it first
  5. Thanks to everyone for the feedback. I also appreciate David (Garageland) posting the office’s photos. Those are the same pics that I saw with Dr. Hasson and Doug during my visit on June 15. You should know that the length of my hair in those pre-op photos was at a #3 guard on the crown and the post-op photos (at 17 months) were at a #6 guard. Dr. Hasson also spent around 10 minutes combing my hair to make it look the best it could be for the 17 month pics. I acknowledge that David’s photos are the ones that I requested from Doug via email on July 5. I didn’t hear back from Doug by
  6. Hi guys, I've been in touch with Doug at H&W, I'll post an update later this week.
  7. Reply: 1) All the grafts went into my crown. 2) Yes, I've been on Fin for 9 years. I tried Minox for a bit years ago but it irritated my scalp so I stopped using it.
  8. Thanks for the replies, everyone. Just to clarify, I have a pre-op pic posted. It's the first pic on the left with shorter hair. The 6 month post-op is next (in the middle) and then I put today's pic up on the right (18 months post-op). I don't see much difference but according to Dr. Hasson at my last visit, this is an acceptable result for the 2391 grafts that I had implanted. I'm don't feel the same way though - the pics don't lie.
  9. Thanks for the feedback, Sean. One of my before pics is included with my original write-up (see the first pic posted with shorter hair). The fact that you can't see the difference and say you'd like to see the pre-op/before pics says it all... not much growth.
  10. Hi Everyone, I’m writing this post to ask you for your feedback on my FUT results from Dr. Hasson. Background I’ve had subtle thinning hair in my crown for about 9 years and have been taking Propecia for that same amount of time. I’m now 33 years old. After researching hair transplant options, by using the forums and going for consultations, I decided to go to Hasson & Wong’s clinic in Vancouver. October 2013 I went into see Joe, the consultant at Hasson & Wong, about FUT surgery. He said that the doctor would likely recommend about 2000 grafts in order to densely pack
