  1. Looks really good. You already look improved, and now you just need to wait. I'm envious. I wish I had gone to a good doctor.
  2. Hi @abixx, Not to be too negative, but your donor area looks patchy and overharvested in some areas. I can see a kind of "line" across the bottom of the extraction area, and the far left side is overharvested. The doctor could have extracted a bit lower, without getting into the nape hair. If you're not likely to progress to a NW7, he could have extracted higher up. That way, he could have left your donor area overall denser, and blended the extracted area with the unextracted areas so that no macro irregularities would exist. He also really overextracted from the far left side. It almost
  3. It's been nearly 8 months since this patient's transplant. Dr Bhatti himself tells his patients that after 6 months, most of the growth will be apparent. Before my transplant, he told me that at 6 months I'd see 80% of the new hairs growing. Is Dr Bhatti wrong? I just don't believe that AltonMeyer was a shill. I think Eugenix is nearly as shitty as Darling Buds, so I'm not picking one clinic over another either.
  4. I'm pretty sure that H&W are better on the recipient side of the transplant and I would definitely choose them if money m were no object. I don't know about diffused thinning or Rahal. More on H&W having learned from Erdogan below. https://hassonandwong.com/our-journey-to-fue/ "In Europe the work of Dr Jose Lorenzo and Dr Koray Erdogan has come closest to the quality of work that we like to produce. With their assistance we have trained already experienced technicians in their manual extraction techniques. For approximately 2 years we have been slowly increasi
  5. @johanchicago, check out the below case, and observe the patient’s donor area after 5000 FUE. If Erdogan can do that, then maybe he can salvage your donor supply and extract more usable grafts than you think. You might want a doctor like Erdogan, capable of predicting which hairs are likely to be basically permanent so that every possible donor graft can be used, and who is able to homogenize your donor area and marry its density with the density on top, in a natural way. Maybe Bhatti estimated the remaining donor supply from only the safe zone, or possibly some areas outside of the safe zone
  6. I think the donor management is as good as it gets and you chose an excellent doctor. The grafts seem to have grown well, although more in the crown will help add the finishing touch. I’m wondering one thing: is the hairline a bit rough from close up? I ask, because I heard people say that Erdogan is good for getting lots of grafts and conserving donor, and that one can go to him first for volume, and then another doc to create a soft hairline. Either way, it looks really good.
  7. I suggest finding a HT surgeon who will help you plan for the future and conserve your donor area and donor supply. Bhatti doesn’t do that, fullstop. Before any shills or mods pop up to tell me that he does a great job: AFAIK Bhatti doesn’t measure donor density. To properly manage donor supply, the donor density needs to be measured. Future loss needs to be estimated to some degree. Extraction needs to be done aesthetically. Bhatti told me that he didn’t need to measure my donor density. He “eyeballed” it and roughly estimated (i.e. bullshitted) my remaining donor supply. He also extracted in
  8. Before your transplant, all you had available to you to assess Dr. Bhatti’s service were forum posts, brief conversations with him, etc. Now you’ve actually gotten a *failed* hair transplant from him, resulting from his own errors as a doctor, and you’ve been blamed for your own disappointment. Now, based on actual experience, you can really judge and assess his service and decide whether it is worth going back to him and having him cut into your scalp again. I would run for the hills. You’ve only got one scalp, and really only once chance left at getting this right.
  9. After my own unfortunate Bhatti transplant, I asked Bhatti in an email why he had recommended such a low hairline. He said it wasn’t low. Later, in a Skype call, I asked him why he had implanted at such a low density. He said that he did his best given the available grafts. I spoke with another Bhatti patient who said that the excuse Bhatti gave him for his sparse growth was that his head was too big. He also said that Bhatti hadn’t mentioned anything about his head size before the procedure, yet claimed he had. And now we see another patient getting gaslighted with a similar excuse.
  10. Thanks. I appreciate that. I think this is repairable, although the loss of grafts is not reversible. I’m trying to gauge how much I should focus on repairing the donor area, and how much on fixing the recipient area. I’m going to try to get a refund, but based on conversations with past Bhatti victims, they were refused refunds. Also, I’ve been told by others that Dr. Bhatti repeatedly lied about and flip flopped on various issues. Dr. Bhatti sent me an email telling me that I had “grossly misrepresented my experience” or some such nonsense and (long ago) claimed he would reply in the forums.
  11. I definitely agree that @jonnyalex is a valuable member here, not a moron. Group hug?
  12. Hey @jonnyalex, yea there was a misunderstanding, but this is a forum and that happens. If we all met in person I bet we’d generally agree on the relative competence of both of the doctors mentioned. Lets not suggest banning people who are brave enough to criticize “recommended” doctors. We need people like that. Yea at this point I’m certain that Bhatti messed up my scalp. Thanks for making me a repair candidate Dr. Bhatti! (TM) But I value your and and @JayLDD‘s input. You’re both real, honest, and not shills, and so neither one of you should be banned in any circumstance.
  13. Yes. I was temporarily in a poor state of mind when I made the decision to get a HT with Bhatti. He is so incompetent, and yet so bizarrely and annoying arrogant. The Dunning-Kruger effect is strong in him. The way he is pushed on this site as producing “fantastic” results or whatever is just absurd. My donor area is all messed up still, and frankly I don’t believe the doctor’s graft count. I think he lied about that, among other things. Maybe they extracted/transected 2369, and implanted 1800 or so. Sparsely. I think the main reason Bhatti is “recommended” is that the HT business is not very
  14. The point regarding those two victims was that they didn’t have any physiological problems. Their transplants were just poorly designed. The grafts grew. But they were placed too sparsely. So they had to get a repairs. What difference does it make whether we can see the results of their repairs? Do you think that Dr. Bhatti was merely being wise to design sparse and unnatural frontal zones? I’m not entirely sure why the one who already had his repair didn’t want to post his results. What I remember is that he claimed there were legal reasons which I assumed had to do with a disclaimer. Th
  15. What I’ve understood is that H&W check out their patients and try to discourage them from going ahead with a procedure if there is any doubt that it will be successful, for whatever reason. They take into account physiological differences, and carefully design their extraction patterns and recipient areas to avoid walking their patients off a cliff. Dr. Bhatti seems to have the exact opposite strategy. Lets call it the “fast life” hair transplant surgeon strategy.
