  1. Very glad to hear there was a happy ending to this story and that the patient is doing well.. Just goes to show that you need to research heavily and realize that if it sounds too good to be true, than it is. Hopefully this leads to the so called "doctor" being arrested and losing his medical license.
  2. I've had 2 FUT surgeries and I took off/worked from home for at least 1 week afterwards Like you I also work in an office setting and talked with my manager or HR to let them know that I would be needing to wear a hat due to a recent procedure. From there, they shouldn't ask too many questions due to legalities
  3. Look's great Matt! Glad we both got our crown's done around the same time to watch each other's progress. It never ceases to amaze me how clean the postop work is.Here's to hoping the third time is a charm for you!
  4. I wouldn't go to him if he offered to do the surgery for free: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2852464/Hair-transplant-doctor-stars-loses-medical-license-declaring-reincarnation-Jesus-Christ.html
  5. I felt the same way you did about not seeing a lot of before/after pictures of the crown so I've started a timeline of my own journey for others to follow (see below). You've picked some good names but I would also to say make sure you're doing a consult with each doctor to understand their methods and what they would feel would be in your best interest to do as far as FUT/FUE, number of grafts etc
  6. This is extremely sad. Hopefully this brings to the light that there needs to be a higher levels of industry standards across the board. This site should be able to continue offering advice to those unfamiliar with the surgery, physicians and proper ways of operating. The biggest takeaways from this are that if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is. No ethical physician would ever attempt 9,000 grafts because it's not realistic. It sounds like this patient was promised the "magic wand solution". Please educate yourself on the physician, their practice and methods of operation. In doing so, it can literally save your life.
  7. I had my hairline done with Dr. Konior 3 years ago and my crown done in October. What he's able to do with less than 2500 grafts is amazing and you'll be very pleased with how natural of a result you'll get.
  8. It takes a big person to admit their mistakes and it goes to show that "ignorance isn't bliss". Hopefully this can teach many a lesson about the purpose of this forum and that we're all in this together. That shirt is 🔥 by the way
  9. What's your goal? What are you looking to achieve? You should never let cost be the sole deciding factor as this is something that will permanently effect you in either a positive or negative way.

  11. @Melvin-Moderator Great topic to continue shedding light on. Any type of procedure/operation can have complications, so why risk several hundred dollars over your health and life for that matter? Educate yourself, ask questions, consult multiple surgeons, understand the realistic expectations of what can/can't be done, what percent of the surgery is actually performed by the surgeon etc. I feel like this is an extension of the Bosley's and Restore clinics here in the US that have been providing shoddy work for decades. Your health and well being is so much more important than any monetary amount you can save.
  12. @Melvin-Moderator I shaved mine for this last procedure I had done. I think it's essential when going through all the work of a transplant, that you give your doctor the best possible situation to know where grafts need to be placed and to yield the best possible result in the end. It's just another obstacle to remove to allow the doctor to work efficiently.
