  1. Hate to bring up an old topic but definitely not going with Baubac now after more research patient reviews are almost non existent unless they are vetted through the clinic first... that’s sketchy practice im also sick of seeing the same results posted over and over by the clinic
  2. Thanks for all the info. I might get on koniors long list. Still haven’t quite decided yet
  3. Hello all, I’m posing this question as a prior FUE patient (not of either doctor). I am not currently looking to get a procedure because my hair is pretty good right now but I will be looking within the next two years or so, and I couldn’t find any information about the above topic. I lurk on these forums often to stay up to date with things and check out results because it’s very interesting to me and makes me happy to see guys getting great results. I have seen some really good things from both Hasson and Wong of H&W clinic fame. They have a robust patient community and some good marketing and are known globally. I have also recently discovered Dr. Raymond Konior in Chicago, which is close to where I live. I’ve conversed with him several times just asking about his methods and was truly impressed by his responsiveness. His results are also amazing and I have not found anything bad about him. I’ve compared results between the two and honestly it’s hard to really tell which takes the cake. With someone like me who is willing to wait a while, what is the best course of action that you would take? Could I be better suited with one or the other? My procedure would be entirely in the frontal third, mostly the hairline, and I’m looking for FUE. I can upload some pics later, as well.
  4. Has anyone here actually gotten a procedure there?
  5. Gotcha... I am also looking at Hasson/Wong for FUE
  6. Hey all, I am looking to get a touch up hairline procedure and am considering Dr. Baubac Hayatdavoudi in Beverly Hills due to some great results I’ve seen. However, I have some concerns. 1. Can’t seem to find many patient reviews, and the ones I do find seem to be recycled on different sites. 2. Saw a disturbing post in another thread about how a patient was forced to sign NDAs limiting his ability to post publicly about results. 3. Punch size is important to me, I keep my hair cut short in the donor area, and I do not want large FUE scars. Have not been able to find any information about Dr. Baubac’s instruments other than the fact that they are “proprietary”. Can anybody body shed some light on this clinic? At face value it looks like a top clinic but there are some things going on that give me a shady vibe.
  7. No. Another Dr. I got the density increased in the temples and the hairline slightly softened with some one follicle grafts Erdogan used multiple hair grafts on the hairline and it was noticeable up close. It’s hard to say because overall it looks great other than some inconsistencies in the hairline that only someone with a trained eye could spot. However I don’t think I can recommend him anymore especially after seeing some of his recent results that frankly look horrible. I believe he has gotten complacent; when I was there he operated on 4-5 people at a time and he had an army of techs so it was like playing Russian roulette. He was nice and all to me and it was a good experience but I would not take the risk of going back there again. For legal and and privacy reasons I can’t state the doctors name because of the nature of this thread but he is very well-known.
  8. I did end up getting a small 400 Graft touch up this week. Unshaven. Can’t even tell anything was done. Just adding some density behind the hairline
  9. 12 month results. Pretty pleased. Taken with flash, best quality pics I have right now. I would say it looks pretty natural. My barber commented that my hairline is the "golden standard" so that sure feels nice. There are some spots on the left side that aren't quite as dense and I'm planning a 500 graft session to touch everything up. Curious to see what the community here thinks.
  10. No pics right now but here are my observations: The hairline looks very, very good when it has grown or to a quarter of an inch or so. It is starting to blend in nicely with the native hair. However, when my hair is buzzed to a 1 it looks a lot worse. Noticeable change in density. I know native density with a HT isn't realistic and maybe I still had unrealistic expections, but I would've liked more density. I can tell that at the 8-12mo mark it will look stellar grown out long. That's assuming I keep getting growth. However I am still planning one more pass to help thicken up the recipient area so it looks better short.
  11. Yeah, that's what I plan on doing. I'm going to see another doc in LA that specializes in hairlines and see what they think in December, and if a touch up is required or not. I don't think I'll need more than 750-1000 grafts max to get a more blended density. Upon inspection of the recipient area, it just doesn't look like there are going to be any more sprouts, in which case the density will be nowhere near what it needs to be. Not expecting native density at all, never was. But this didn't mean my expectations (thus far). I know some say it is early, but I don't see how it could improve much past this point
  12. I'm almost at the six month mark. Photoas attached. Taken with flash. I've been keeping my hair buzzed to a 1 guard through the growing stage. At this point, I am not happy. My forelock density looks great and natural. However the lateral sides of my hairline (temples) lack density and look unnatural. I basically have two hairlines with sparse hair in between. Very disappointed at this point. I'm not sure if I didn't get enough grafts or had low yield, but I'm planning another procedure of 600-1000 grafts to blend the area better with another doctor in the U.S.
