  1. Can you provide a graft placement picture? Thanks.
  2. Look around. There’s plenty of honest pictures with much better results. The fact that he needed 3 sessions to reach that number is cause for concern.
  3. If this is what three sessions and 5600 grafts gets you, I’m giving up on HTs.
  4. Seems like an irresponsible use of grafts unless I’m missing something.
  5. It would be interesting to know the delta in labor cost (i.e., use of techs) between ARTAS and manual FUE.
  6. It's 8 months, not 6 months and while it will improve over the coming months, you can get a sense for what the end result will be.

    It was not my intention to be insulting. However, if this forum is made for patients, by patients then we have a duty to educate others on the many pitfalls associated sign hair transplantation, one of which is pointing out the obvious short comings associated with the ARTAS. The ARTAS is objectively inferior to manual transplantation, I think everyone can agree on that. So the question is why do some doctors still promote it? My guess is two fold: 1.) It is less laborious than manual transplantation allowing resulting in more dollars per hours exerted by the surgeon. 2.) Surgeons attempting to recuperate the enormous costs of these machines by continuing to promote them. I am not insulting, I am keeping people honest.
  8. Excellent, efficient use of grafts and very natural.
  9. Unbelievable result. Completely natural and undetectable even at only 9 months and to the trained eye. Congratulations. You must be estatic.

    I am far from an expert but I’ve been around long enough to know the ARTAS is an inferior product producing inferior results and has no place alongside today’s technology. The fact that you endorse such mediocrity is an enormous red flag. I would advise the rest of the forum to keep their scalps far away from you.
  11. Pretty shocked to hear about the bad multiple results from Wong. I can definitely understand your frustration about just wanting to fix this horrible condition and enjoying your life. Good luck to you.
  12. What is the reason for taking pictures in different rooms? To create more confusion? Sounds suspect.
