    Why Follicular Unit Extraction Has Become Increasingly Popular

    @Etika and @haircrown123, Well for starters both of you have the same profile picture or variation of it anyway which I’m assuming therefore it is a hair transplant clinic that you must represent. Both of you seem to be promoting the benefits of FUE without actually discussing it like educated individuals. FUE certainly has its advantages but both of you sound like talking billboards for the procedure and likely your clinic. Since you clearly are not aware of the policies, if you do represent a hair transplant clinic, you are required to disclose your affiliation in your forum signature. To do this, you’ll have to go under your account settings or profile settings. If you need specific instructions, I can ask our forum co-moderator Melvin to assist. But please keep in mind that this discussion form is not a place to promote, it is a place to discuss the pros and cons of various techniques. Frankly, those who sound like walking advertisements only serve to make their clinic look uneducated. So instead of trying to pretend that FUE is only way and there are no potential problems or pitfalls with it, why I tnot discuss the actual procedure like an educated individual like everybody else. Best regards, Bill
  2. Gabreille, You are certainly welcome to share your genuine experience as a patient but if you do work for the clinic which it seems that you do, you are required to disclose this in your forum signature. You can edit your form signature by going under your account settings or profile information. If you need specific instructions, I will ask our forum co-moderator to post those for you. But just to be sure, you are posting your own results right? You’re not posting someone else’s? As long as you are genuine posting your own pictures, then you are certainly welcome to do that as a patient. But you do need to disclose your affiliation with the clinic in your signature. Thanks, Bill
  3. Legend, You are a longtime member so to be honest I am very surprised by your response to this patient who has share their experience and photos. For you to criticize them, in particular about their appearance is exceptionally inappropriate and is not going to be tolerated. I want to remind you that the doctor of this patient is recommended and has proven to do outstanding work. So I’m not exactly sure why you think that this patient is fake. But even if you do think so, it’s not your job to conclude this and then bash them online. If you feel somebody may be less than genuine, and feel free to send one of us a private message so we can investigate. Alternatively, you can share your concern publicly but you can do it respectfully without insulting someone. Please don’t let me catch you treating members of this community this way again. Best, Bill

    Top 3 Things That Every Hair Transplant Patient Should Know Before Surgery

    One of the top things that I tell men and women considering hair transplant surgery is not to let location or price determine which surgeon you choose for surgical hair restoration. Now, if an outstanding surgeon with a proven track record of producing excellent results happens to be local and affordable, that’s an outstanding bonus. But to seek out a surgeon based on those alone would be a mistake. Great article, Bill

We wish you the best in your hair restoration journey. If you do choose undergo surgical hair restoration, we hope you share your experience and photos here on this forum 🙂 Best wishes, Bill

    Can Saw Palmetto Stop Hair Loss?

    There may be an in between, but for the most part, I don’t think it really does much to stop hair loss especially if used topically. It may have some marginal affect if used orally.

    Can Going Vegan Cure Hair Loss

    Well, any claims to restoring hair by switching your diet is either fake or because someone’s die it was so bad that they had extreme now nutrition and their hair loss was due to that. But usually, hair loss is due to genetics and switching to a vegan will not help. That said, I would like to hear what other people have to say… I am open minded as maybe there’s one particular vegan food that stops DHT for all I know. Let’s hear some thoughts 🙂 Bill

    Are Rahal results inconsistent?

    Keep in mind that consistency are not the same as perfection. In my opinion, his results are quite consistently not. However, no surgeon that’s 1000. There are always cases of less than optimal growth and potential problems that can occur. That’s why patients have to sign a disclosure agreement before they enter into surgery. It is an elective procedure that has a high rate of success in the right surgical hands. Dr. Rahal has been amongst the best for over 10 years in my opinion and if something has changed, then I would certainly like to know so we can investigate it. However, I have not seen many people complain about the results and post their full experience with Photos. I’ve heard couple people complain recently that they aren’t happy like Bman. However, I do encourage these people to contact the surgeon to discuss these concerns and if they choose to share their experience and photos on this forum which they are welcome to, they will need to allow the doctor to share his side of the story along with photos… As long as no identifying information is shown. Best, Bill

    Does The Grow Band Work For Hair Loss

    Great poll, Although I’m sure there are some in between answers. However, in this particular case, I really don’t believe this product will work for anyone with genetic hair loss at all because they don’t even have an accurate understanding of what causes hair loss. Best wishes, Bill
  14. No he’s posting privileges have not been suspended however, I am in the process of speaking to him to understand why he was privately lashing out another member and being inappropriate towards him.
