  1. @Bill - Managing Publisher @Melvin-Moderator I think this community deserve your answer.
  2. Thank you for the feedback. I am 33, losing hair for last 12 years. My hair loss is in the mid-section and crown only. I had first surgery 2 years ago with Richard S. Keller, but not happy with results and disappointed with the fact that he is Coalition doctor. I was on finasteride 10 years ago but decided to quit after 6 months.
  3. Actually I know guy who had surgery with him and he got good results, better than mine. Of course after reading the article above I am not considering him anymore.
  4. @Spaceman thank you for the feedback. Dr Bolton is based in Florida. Nor recommended on this site. I have just received email from Dr Konior, he is booked until May 2020. He is still my option #1. This time I will wait. For my HT #I I did not and made huge mistake. I am waiting on response from other 2 doctors.
  5. I had failed FUT HT and I am planning to have a second surgery(FUT). I live in Chicago but willing to travel. Currently I am planning to have consultation with: 1. Raymond Konior 2. Hasson & Wong 3. Brett Bolton I would like to hear your opinion on how many grafts I will need for decent density and will my scar from second surgery be wider. Before HT#1 After HT - Final Result
  6. Any feedback from Dr. Soni? There are some alarming posts about his work and he is still recommended on this forum.
  7. Amen. And will your illusion be 60grafts/cm2 or 20grafts/cm2 depends of area you have to cover and also of percentage of grafts that survived(surgeon skills). I think that surgeons should not do HT if they now your density will be less that 20grafts/cm2, if they are not money greedy and unethical. Also, sometimes surgeons give false promises and are reason of unrealistic expectations.
  8. Yep, they are from Chicago.I had consultation with them.
  9. I think that videos should be mandatory. Unfortunately some doctors cannot be trusted with their misleading pictures. I am talking from my own experience.
  10. I agree 100%. Your best option is to do another HT with some of top doctors.
