  1. Well that is certainly the understatement of the year. It’s interesting how Spex will take one negative comment I made out of dozens if not hundreds of supportive statements I’ve made about him over the years and blatantly overreact and use that as a means to not only leave this community but attack me and make me sound like a bully. The reality is, all I did was remove comments from Dr. Hasson who already essentially “removed” his own posts by editing his comments, changing them to the word “deleted”. So, any reply to Dr. Hasson didn’t make any sense and thus, I removed those as well. Now, forget whether or not anyone felt the doctors comments were appropriate or not… that is not the issue here. The issue is that Instead of contacting Melvin or I privately and expressing concern or simply asking a question, he decided to sarcastically and unprofessionally make a snide remark making it sound like we are participating in foul play. This is certainly untrue, unappreciated and unprofessional. So I reply to him calling him out for peddling his own agenda. So wrong about that and what’s on True about it? Specs is a self promoter. There’s no question. He has a website dedicated to himself and while it’s good or bad, it doesn’t change the fact that it’s a self promoter peddling his own agenda. Does he help people? Sure. I’ve mentioned that which is why I said what I said. But is there any question that he’s a self promoter? There shouldn’t be. I’m sure Spex gets paid very well for everything he does. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with getting paid as long as you’re working in the patient’s best interest But for him to accuse us of an agenda when he blatantly self promotes on this forum is not only offensive but sort of like the pot calling the kettle black. Now as for Spex, if he wishes to play the martyr, that’s his prerogative and yet more examples of his self seeking agenda. With the record, we have not banned him or suspended him. Leaving this community is his choice. So I guess at this point, we will all wish Spex good luck and hope he works in the best interest of prospective patients regardless of where he posts. But since he has chosen to leave, there’s no sense in continuing to discuss it. That is his choice and we will honor his choice. Bill
  2. Spex, Don’t appreciate your snide remark. If you have a question about something that has been edited, why not to be an adult professional and send a moderator a private message asking about it. Are you a team player or are you a self seeker peddling your own agenda? I think the answer to that question is obvious. However, we have put up with it because you do provide some sound advice and you haven’t blatantly broken any rules As for the editing, Dr. Hasson deleted his own posts. So, it was no longer appropriate to host any replies to his posts including posts that quoted his deleted comments. Frankly, this was obvious so I can’t imagine that you didn’t know this. But this that means that you were trying to stir the pot and become a poison and otherwise healthy well. And that will not be tolerated. I suggest sticking to the scope of the topic and be professional and your responses. Frankly, this was obvious so I can’t imagine that you didn’t know this.

Do you have a question about something we’ve done, you can either ask us privately or even ask us publicly in a normal way. Snide or sarcastic comments just make you look like a fool. Regards, Bill
  3. @John Doe Congratulations on selecting an outstanding surgeon for your hair transplant. In addition to posting on our forum, I encourage you to create a free patient website which is the best way to document your entire hair transplant journey with photos, videos, etc. In fact, we recently overhauled them to make them not only mobile friendly, but essentially like an app that response so well that you can create and manage your website by tapping a few buttons. By tapping a few buttons. Create your own website, simply go to www.hairlossweblogs.com. You can then take your patient website and link it to your form signature. Or you can just link it directly into your post. There are instructions on how to do all that in the “hair transplant experiences and surgeon reviews“ forum up at the top. It’s a pinned topic. For more instructions, feel free to ask. You can find a link to my I lost website and document a journey in my signature below. best wishes, Bill
  4. I personally tried both DermMatch and Toppik in the last bit for some reason I couldn’t feel comfortable with either. I couldn’t find a color match for DermMatch and it just felt like I had makeup in my hair and I just felt like I couldn’t get enough Toppik in my head. It still looked thin even after using a lot of Toppik. But I now it gets who have had great experience with both and even others. So don’t let me experience away you. What about others?
  5. Hi there, sorry for the delay in replying. I’m personally not familiar with that medication and I’m guessing by the lack of replies that nobody who has read this can relate to so far. But it is a legitimate question and I think it should be discussed. For starters, perhaps you can tell us about the medication, what it is, what it does and why you are concerned about it affecting a hair transplant. If you are considering her transplant surgery, I do suggest consulting with a few top surgeons recommended by this community and asking them this question. I’m sure they would have a direct answer. Now, don’t take this as an answer but I would doubt that this or most medications would really affect your hair transplant unless it thins the blood in which case, there may be some complications during surgery. If anybody has any information on this medication or an answer to this question, please reply. Best, Bill
  6. @kathyln, Thanks but I’ve had to remove your promotional link from your post. If you are genuine and interested in participating in discussion, that’s great. But please do not link to promotional products which looks like you’re just trying to pedal and sell it. Thanks, Bill
  7. And the fact that the clinic you are referring to is in turkey… That’s another potential red flag. I’m not familiar with the clinic you mentioned but many clinics and turkey are turning patients over like a factory and operate in the “black market“. Frankly, I would never recommend anybody go to Turkey for a hair transplant UNLESS it’s a surgeon we have already prescreen and approved recommendation. That’s not to say there aren’t potentially other good surgeons there, just that we don’t know and there are a lot of black market clinics causing patients way more harm than good. Bill
  8. Nasser, Thanks for posting however, you sound like a walking advertisement for a vacation resort rather than a patient who just had a hair transplant who is sharing their genuine experience. If you are indeed a genuine patient, I suggest sharing your actual experience, what it was like, how you felt, how involved was the doctor, what the technicians did, how many grafts you received and where, etc. and most importantly… Where are the photos? If you just had surgery, you should be able to post before and immediately postop pictures showing your procedure. And if you are concerned about your identity, you can always crop your face out of it. These so-called “glowing reviews“ simply appear fake and nobody is going to believe it unless it’s backed up with a real experience at pictures. Maybe even a video. So let’s see the photos and hear about your actual experience if you are genuine Best, Bill
  9. I am posting again because I see that I must have not seen that the transplant and hair has grown a lot since the last time you posted. So yes, you are now satisfied because the transplanted hair is really taking off. At five months, it was typical not to see much gross but in only a month or two, your hair has sprouted big time. Do you see why people were telling you to relax? Don’t worry about editing your old posts, just keep updating the topic. In the meantime, it would be great if you would create your own website to show off your progress and results to the world. Just go to www.hairlossweblogs.com and begin creating your website and documenting your results. best, Bill
  10. Haare, I see that you recorded somebody’s post because you don’t like what they had to say but realistically, I understand what they are saying. The truth is, there is no such thing as an intermediate result. There is the procedure, the progress and the results. You won’t see the results for 12 months. I understand that you are anxious and a lot of people in your position is. But it is not a “bad result“ because the result hasn’t been seen yet. The truth is, many people don’t see many signs of growth at this early stage and I suggest hanging in there and waiting to see how it turns out. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate you posting monthly pictures and hope you continue to do so. But in terms of the results… Don’t evaluated until at least 12 months. Also, I encourage you to create a patient website which is the best way to share your progress, photos and videos. Simply go to www.hairlossweblogs.com and click “create website”. There you will create an account and share your experience, procedure information and photos. You can even rate your surgeon although I suggest you do that when the results grow in another 7 to 8 months. When you’re done creating your patient website you could link it to your forum signature. All you have to do is go under account settings or profile settings to update your signature and post a link to your patient website/blog Best, Bill

  14. Kareem, Well I appreciate you sharing your experience, your post sounds like a walking advertisement rather than a genuine experience. If you’ve had surgery there, why not share an actual experience of what your procedure was like and post photos for us to see. Otherwise, this looks like nothing more than a promotional post to give your doctor some clout. Frankly, and image is worth 1000 words and without pictures, your review won’t be believable. And replies like the above and mine will not help your cause. But we are only replying like this because we are skeptical of how genuine you are. Bill
