  1. Just post pictures so other members can get involved
  2. Your hair loss was less than mine and with 4k you definitely should have a better result. But it is still early, you have to wait 16 months since it is crown.
  3. I do not think it fair to say that all clinics are doing that. Also, it is fact that you cannot have density as before. It will be useful for this community if you post your pictures so we can compare Dr Keller's pictures and yours. I hope that moderators will do something about doctors who are posting misleading pictures. I am planning to see Dr Keller next month and ask him for refund. He gave me a lot of promises that did not happen. I am planning to have 2nd surgery, but not with him for sure.
  4. Could you please take a few pictures today/tomorrow and post them so we can compare? I was in similar situation where my results on Dr Keller's pictures looked way better and where misleading.
  5. Wait till you are 18 months post op and please post pictures. I had a similar experience with Dr Keller, not happy as well. 2nd HT is probably the best option.
  6. @Melvin-Moderator @Bill - Managing Publisher Hi, I took some pictures under natural lighting. Could you please provide your opinion. Thanks
  7. I had online consultation with Konior but wait time was too long even for in person consultation and I decided to do not wait. My mistake. I am considering him for repair since I definitely need another surgery. I have picked Dr Keller because he was recommended on this site and his pictures looked promising. I am not saying that he is not great surgeon and that many people are not happy with him, but in my case the results are not good and he is not standing behind his work. All the time he was trying to tell me that this is good result and my expectations are unrealistic. During consultation he quoted that I will need 3000-3200 grafts and during 1 year post op that I need more.
  8. Hi All, I understand that I cannot have density as before but what is point of having result like this. It is better to do not have HT at all. During my consultation Dr Keller said I will have a good results. He did not mention anything about second surgery during my initial consultation. During my 1-year post op he said that I need another surgery if I want a better density that my results are good and expectations unrealistic. In my opinion my final result is not good. During 4 months post op he said I can expect poster results, during 7 months post op visit that my density will double. None of this happened. Five months ago I have asked for post op pictures showing crown to be posted, it happened now after moderators asked.
  9. Please see my post above. You can ask Dr Keller to post his feedback as well. Thanks.
  10. I am not trying to be unfair. I just think that Dr Keller was not honest with me and is not accept ing fact that my result is below average. I understand that I cannot have density as before but what is point of having result like this. It is better to do not have HT at all. During my consultation he said I will have good results. He did not mention that I will need 2nd surgery. In my opinion my final result is not good. During 4 months post op he said I can expect poster results, during 7 months post op visit that my density will double. None of this happened. You can see that in May I haves aked him to post pictures that show my crown from the top and hair counts. He never did. You can contact him and ask him to post all his pictures, but I just think that pre op and post op pictures should be the same in the term of what they showing. If three of my pre op photos in his post show crown from the top, I would expect 3 post op that show crown as well. I think that it is fair expectation.
  11. Hi Melvin, thanks for the feedback. Please see my pictures bellow and let me know your opinion. Before Grafts placement Month 2 Month 3
  12. Thanks for the feedback. My procedure did not include any hairline work, just the crown and mid scalp. My hairline was not affected by hair loss.
  13. Hi AnalogFeel, I think that my tickness is above the average. I had around 2,000 grafts with 3 hairs. None of the post op pictures he posted does not show my crown from the top. I have some improvements, but I have expected better density.
  14. Hi All, I had my FUT HT with Dr Richard S. Keller 02/10/2017. I am not happy with my result and my surgeon is telling me that my expectations are unrealistic. I have expected better density. I would like to hear your opinion and recommendations. I had 3,125 FU and most of them were 3s. He posted my results, but none of the post op pictures show crown from the top. Before 12 Months 14 months
