  1. Which method do you guys think results in less damage to the donor area like less scaring and lower transection rates? I think this is the most import aspect of this for me and remember someone saying manual fue was better in this regard. What's the consensus on this?
  2. Sorry to hear that man. It sucks that you can spend so much money on a clinic that has such a good reputation and still end up with poor results. I was just thinking a month ago that I should stop being cheap and just pay the money here in Canada to get a hair transplant with rahal as it would be more convenient but really starting to rethink that. Really feels like all these clinics are the same now... even erdogan went from really excellent results to mediocre in only a couple years. Funny how quickly things change.
  3. Great results... congratulations on a trans-formative procedure. Just wondering after having a hair transplant with bhatti and eugenix who you would recommend based on your personal experience and why? Thanks.
  4. Honestly guys... reading this type of stuff in this forum is why I am afraid to get a hair transplant. I'm not concerned regarding the financial loss - I can understand how important it is for people who have to save up for months or years to do this procedure but I always knew I could recover with the loss of a few thousand dollars. What truly scares me is that a doctor can operate on a patient and basically produce no results and have no explanation as to why it failed. The worst part being is they could have used up a significant portion of your hair grafts which means you might never be able to do another procedure and even if this wasn't the case your donor area will still look like crap from being badly depleted. In this case I feel really feel bad for the poster. I almost booked with Dr. Bhatti a few months ago but after seeing a few bad results I decided against it. While the results I saw were not complete failures they just didn't look good. The area's with implanted hairs just looked really sparse and had poor density. While I don't completely trust eugenix yet I haven't seen any major evidence that indicates that they produce any poor results. If they're as good as they appear then its very likely I might have a procedure with them in the future.
  5. Was wondering about this place as well. One of my co-workers was talking about them and showed me their instagram a few weeks ago.
  6. I respect your opinion @Ashishmehta but like I said I need to see some more evidence first. I haven't completely crossed eugenix off my list but they just don't have the same history on this forum as Dr. Bhatti. If I can see a clear history of patients in the next year or two getting good results with Eugenix then its likely I might book with them. I hear nothing but good things about Dr Sethi and Dr Bansal but at the same time I don't know how involved they actually are in the procedure and that's another issue for me.
  7. HLP Toronto - I feel very similarly to the way you feel about Eugenix. I actually read your thread regarding your hair transplant with Dr. Bhatti and it seemed very detailed and well researched. At the moment I feel like I might go with Dr. Bhatti in the future and one of the reasons was for something that you also mentioned in your thread. It was regarding one patient who wrote about them stopping the procedure mid surgery to make him pay for more grafts that they never actually gave him...? It just seemed really strange to me and I honestly don't really feel like dealing with something like that during a stressful procedure like a hair transplant. The other thing was their pricing isn't very transparent. Some people seem to pay a lot less and some people seem to pay a lot more and I'm not sure why this is... makes me feel like they try to charge foreigners much more money than they probably charge local customers. Either way it just rubs me the wrong way. I don't mind paying more money for a hair transplant and I'd definitely go with eugenix if their results are as good as I've seen but so far I'd need more concrete evidence. Seems like there's always some rave reviews from people who have very little history on this forum and I find it questionable sometimes...
  8. I dont know if you guys purposefully glaze over the points I make when responding to my comments. I never said I wanted a doctor to do the entire surgery but I said I would prefer the doctors do the extractions. Obviously I think the most important parts should be done by a doctor and parts that require less skill can be done by techs. Most doctors who are involved in the surgery do the extractions themselves and create the slits and the rest is done by techs. Doing extractions for a 2000 graft fue is most likely 4 hours at the most.
  9. I'm not sure why you think there would be no advantage. If you go to a clinic where they're using only techs then you have no clue how much experience each individual person has. If someone who lacks experience does a crucial part of your surgery like extractions then there's a chance many of your grafts can be transected. Extractions require a lot more skill to do than implanting. I'd rather have a doctor who I know has over 10 years of experience rather than some random person.
  10. I know most doctors won't do the entire operation themselves so generally I mean the ones who do the extractions and incisions themselves as I told those parts require the most skill.
  11. Hi, Just wondering who the best surgeons are that actually perform the surgery themselves? So far I know of Dr. Bhatti and Dr. Demirsoy who both do the extracting and incisions themselves. Would like some more recommendations please since I'm looking at doctors that limit the use of techs. Thanks,
  12. I was actually considering Dr. Cinik after seeing the results posted by lukeyb1687. His results were some of the best I've seen but after finding out that the clinic does several procedures a day I decided against it. Like someone else was saying you don't know which team is performing the procedure and if that team will be the same one you get on the day of your operation. That's just too many variables for me that can influence the final result and a risk I'm not willing to take. I have also heard from other sources that the doctor does perform up to 9 surgeries a day like another poster was saying. When I was also researching cinik on google I did came across a post made by a member on another forum that sounded like a nightmare to me. He was basically saying his procedure was done in a tiny room and he said the technicians were using their phones during the operation (wtf)... For me those are big red flags and I'm not willing to take a risk on a surgeon like that.
  13. Hi GreatStan, I would like to here more about your experience with Dr. Bhatti... would you be able to go into greater detail about what happened? Also if you have any pictures can you please post them so we can have a look for you?
  14. Hi everyone, Just wondering what your opinion is regarding these two different techniques for extracting grafts? Which one produces better results in the hands of an experienced surgeon and which one is best for reducing scarring and trauma to the donor area? I am very conscious of having a donor area with very limited scarring so wondering if one would work better for my situation?
  15. I honestly don't know why its so difficult to find a good hair transplant surgeon. If I knew for certain I could pay a reasonable price and get a good job done then I would probably have done this already but even most of the recommended surgeons on here seem to have a lot of bad cases. I was very close to booking with Dr. Bhatti and ended up sending him an email to clear up some last minute concerns about the procedure and pretty much got no response from him so I've essentially crossed him of my list now. I am still considering Eugenix but they are a little on the expensive side for an Indian clinic (which I don't mind if I knew the results would be certain but I still have a few doubts about them).They have a lot of good cases recently but I feel like they just don't have as much history here as other hair transplant doctors. As of now I haven't found any cases where the results were negative but I feel for me to know for sure I would have to wait a couple years and see how consistent they are. The two biggest concerns I have are: 1) Over-harvesting of donor area (having a damaged look from doctors extracting the grafts improperly leading to a patchy looking donor area). 2) Having unnatural looking hairline - I would want transplant to match density of existing hair (I've seen too many sparse and wiry looking hairlines done by doctors recently).
