  1. Hair always appears less dense when wet. Maybe you should avoid showering. Doubt it will affect you much.
  2. Hair transplants do not recreate density. They create the illusion of density. If your hair looks better when the doctor’s office styles it, learn how they do it. Maybe you should enroll in beauty school?
  3. I think it looks pretty good TBH, but since there aren’t any real “questions or answers” at this point, could we move this thread to the “Whimpering Like A Toddler” sub-forum?
  4. This is childish. ”I paid 14k. My results should be better, right?”. Wrong. They are what they are. The money is a sunk cost. “Nobody here told me Keller was a bad idea”. So what. It’s not hard to find out that $3.5 per graft is half the going rate for top notch FUT in a major U.S. city. Less than half for FUE. But you know everything so that didn’t give you pause. So, you might ask what wouldn’t be childish? OK. Wait until 12 months to fully assess. 18 might be better. If you aren’t happy then, do a few consults with truly top of the line guys. The kind of docs who would be happy to turn you away if you are unrealistic after being presented with a brutally honest assessment. Then decide. Not before. That’s what an adult would do.
  5. Both are quite possible. However, your incessant childishness makes me think number 1 is the greater contributor. It’s really embarrassing.
  6. It seems a little high. Top guy in NYC was $7 per graft last summer. Could even go to $6 if I had schedule flexibility.
  7. How old are you now? What did you have done before? Do you have pictures? This information will be helpful in answering your questions.
  8. Looks great. Especially for only 7 months. How many grafts? How’s the crown? Hard to tell with those photos.
  9. When are each of those photos from? They aren‘t all current are they?
  10. It‘s a good question, but if you can‘t trust your doctor to correctly account for the number of grafts, then you certainly shouldn‘t trust him to slice open your skull. In my case, the final count was below the initial estimate by about 100 grafts and I was refunded the difference. I would have never known if not told.
  11. If you intend to sue the doctor, you will need to make the case that he did something wrong. A poor result if his other patients have adequate results is not very convincing. A judge or jury would probably just shrug. Tough break.
  12. It doesn’t matter what we think. It doesn’t matter what you think. You either will have a failed procedure or, in time, a successful one. Do yourself and everyone else a favor and STFU and report back in a couple months. There’s really nothing else to be done.
  13. So, you really don’t want to do another surgeon. (Whatever that means in English). You thought Keller was elite, a great doctor. Yet, you are six months post HT, having serious concerns about your result, but can’t be bothered to drive an hour to have this elite, great, and very nice doctor take a look at your progress or lack thereof. Would you like me to call him for you? You had surgery on June 29th? I’m dialing now...
  14. If he’s a VERY, VERY nice man, pick up the phone and call RIGHT NOW!!!! Are you a complete idiot?
  15. How good can he be, if you aren’t even willing to call him with your concerns? He’s only your doctor after all.
