    That certainly sounds very bad but if its true I don't get why you wouldn't post photos of it. Nothing more I can say about it.

    Don't act like this has anything to do with surgical details, you're complaining about a botched result and haven't even posted photos which is dishonest plain and simple. End of story.

    I just don't think its honest to bash a surgeon saying your result was "botched" and not even post proper photos or preops of the result. Especially with comments like this, what do you even mean? The only pics of your hair laying flat in your thread looked fine, and again virtually everyone in the thread agreed. I hope you're happy with your second runthrough but suspect you won't be. Transplants can't bring back your natural, original set of hair with prehairloss density. Also another thing, you say the hair was supposed to be packed at 70 FU per cm2, that's just false and I guarantee the clinic never said that so why keep bringing it up. I think you're mixing up the density with the area.

    I mean if the result is really that bad, I really can't understand why you wouldn't just post clear photos and preops to show what you mean.

    I totally understand that, but it would help a lot if you posted pre-op photos and HD shots of the hairline so people can see exactly what you mean. Especially when a thread full of people couldn't see a serious issue either.
  6. I'm not saying this? What are you talking about? Not sure if you're referring to what the other person said but I'm specifically saying its obvious that shock loss has not occurred based on the pre-op to the 4 month. Nothing about the result so not sure how you interpreted it that way. And the donor thinning is obvious, you don't need a microscope to see it. No reasonable person would disagree with this.

    https://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/profile/31703-ht0416/content/ He refuses to post pre-op photos and virtually no one on the thread thought this was a failed result, because it isn't. He said this 6 months ago: "Sorry about the lack of activity from my side. Since i wrote my last post 6 months ago (16 months post op) i thought that was my final result. Since then i can honestly say texture of hair has got a lot better. I have stopped using Alpecin shampoo as i think that was one of the main reasons i was disliking my new hair due to it making hair look different colour. Before my transplant i never used!!! I stopped taking fin at 1 year then resumed it for 1 month at 15 months. Both occasions I had many side of effects. Stopped taking since i do see odd hair in sink and shower in morning. Overall I would say i am alot happier with my hair transplant from dr erdogan!!!! Rating 7/10 (with a little touch up to hairline would improve rating to a solid 10) Touch up would let me expose hairline." He also said this about it being too dense "at the moment as soon as i expose hairline where it is so dense at 70cm2 it looks as if im wearing something on my head. " And now says this " also the density was very poor standard 3000 grafts (70cm2) more like 30cm2"
  8. I agree that any good surgeon should be doing this. Especially for a patient like OP who had a very poor and thinning donor also.
  9. I was which I'm sure helps. If you're not on finasteride you can hardly attribute it to shockloss, on top of that if your head is shaved for a procedure of course its going to look thinner than when its at regular length. Without finasteride more hair that isn't DHT resistant will be lost and that's not in doubt, so its not surprising that the recipient hairs didn't come back.
  10. The original point you made was inaccurate, this patient did not suffer shock loss cosmetically important shockloss issues. You're trying to sound helpful or make yourself sound smart by stating something which in this case clearly isn't relevant. I'll put the two photos up to compare, you're clearly talking out of your ass. Blaming doctors for this and hiding its possibility like you did (like in this case where it hasn't even occurred) is also dishonest. It's called the ugly duckling phase because there's a big red mark in the shape of a hairline left and no growth, it has absolutely nothing to do with shockloss. I've had multiple surgeries before including those with significant implanting into areas of existing hair and haven't experienced anything remotely resembling shockloss, so evidently it doesn't happen to "everyone".
  11. Blatantly and 100% wrong, this patient did not have any issues in the slightest with recipient shockloss and its very obvious from the pre-op photos. People overly worry about recipient shockloss because of ignorant posts like this mentioning it when there's zero sign of it occurring. For the 10 or so less hairs on the entire scalp less than to begin with, there's a 99% chance that you can attribute it to progressive hairloss, automatically assuming shockloss is braindead. Native recipient density is virtually the same the only difference between a longer length in the pre-ops.
  12. I agree with others on the sentiment that he isn't particularly concerned about it, but at the same time to add to your point if you're someone that doesn't care about perfection and don't want to worry extensively about hair (but enough to regularly wear a piece), a transplant is the absolute easiest and lowest maintenance way to achieve that.
  13. Imo HLC at this link https://www.hairtransplantcenter-turkey.com/hair-transplant-training/ do by far the best work from these options, among the worlds best in general also for FUE. I think I saw Dr. Lupanzula in Belgium offered an extended internship or something along those lines also. There are very few FUE surgeons globally who do good work or that I would have a procedure from even among those who have dedicated their lives to it, very much suspect you'd be looking at at least 6-12 months to provide a competitive service, on top of the fact that hair transplants are ultimately a team effort and finding competent staff and technicians is an extreme difficulty on top of just knowing how to perform the procedure.
