    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

    Are Rahal results inconsistent?

    Bman, I’m not sure if you responded to my private message or not, if you have I will go look at it now and then assuming everything is OK, I will take the moderation off. 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
  7. 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.

    Nadimi vs H&W vs Rahal - Consults

    @bman3082, I need you to reply to my private message before I let you post anything else publicly. Bill
  10. Melvin, while your advice is truthful, you do know that Dr. Fargo is a highly esteemed Coalition member right? While travel is sometimes necessary, if you have an outstanding surgeon in your backyard, there’s no need to travel. Ahmeda, Dr. Farjo is amongst the elite and the shortlist of surgeons I would trust my own scalp with. You would do yourself a great disservice if you didn’t consider him for surgery. Best wishes, Bill

    Hair Transplant Surgery and The "Illusion of Density"

    HLPToronto, You’ll be in great hands and I’m sure he will definitely create an excellent illusion of density for you. But even though it may not be true and density from your teenage years, if you have realistic expectations, you can be very satisfied with a hair transplant. Most people think I never lost any hair or at least only have mild thinning in the crown whereas without my procedures, I would be fully bald. So it really does work when you pick an excellent surgeon. Best, Bill

    Feedback on Dr

    PlzRespond, There was never a lawsuit, however, many many years ago there were some issues related to his involvement on this discussion forum. We decided recently that we would allow normal discussion of him assuming that nobody is blatantly promoting him. Now if all of the sudden, the discussion form is flooded by posts about him, then it is clear that something else is going on And we would have to put a stop to it. Best wishes, Bill
  13. Upshall, Nobody uses .7mm punches for all follicular units. The smallest punches are reserved for 1 haired grafts and up to 1.1mm punches are typically used for 3 or 4 haired grafts. In any case, I don’t see anything wrong with the donor area and it obviously healed very well. Best, Bill
  14. cwolf, Your new hair is really starting to grow in nicely at six months. And you still have a long way to go. I look forward to seeing the results when they all grow in. Best wishes, Bill

    Does Propecia Have Side Effects?

    I personally did not experience side effects for the seven years I took Propecia. I did stop however for my own personal reasons… Simply because I didn’t want to take medication for the rest of my life. I also suspected Propecia wasn’t doing anything for my hair loss and it turns out I was right. Stopping for a Propecia did not cause any further loss of hair. What about other people?
