  1. Thanks for the clarification. If this is the case you need to make sure they are not fraudulently using Dr. Cinik name to obtains clients. As long as your name appears on their website as the doctor that does surgery you will still be considered affiliated to Eagle Travel even if this not the case.
  2. This comment is disturbing if I understand correctly, other photos from our website? Does this mean they have other photos that are misleading or taken from someone else? Eagle travel is now asking for before and after photos once it was asking to take down the photos. Should you not be asking for this when you start having an affiliation with a clinic? I do not know why Dr. Cinik would continue with this company.
  3. Thank you for the reply and calcification. I came across this on an italian facebook group page (over 1000 members) and have been talking one of you reps Umberto. Umberto is great and its a shame he is having to answer other member concerning the photo. I am confused. You said Eagle Travel used to be one of your partners yet your name still remains under this post. When you have a relationship with a company that is using your clinic you must assure this company follows the same high quality and ethical approach as the clinic does. These middle men/recruiters medical tourism company goal is to make as much money as possible , there is nothing wrong with that but many use any type of marketing good, bad, moral or immoral as long as it bring them money. I do not feel the photos has done much damage and the fact you fixed the situation and explained the reason immediately has cleared this up. Although continued to do business with Eagle travel is another story.
  4. Amazing replies. This is a Hasson and Wong photos stolen and posted by a medical tourist company that uses Dr. Cinik. They changed the photo because I talked to there many rep for Italy and told him. This is why I posted in screenshot. Eagle travel continues to sell transplant for Dr. Cinik. Rather than ask them to change the picture why not do the ethical thing and discontinue all affiliation to Eagle travel.
  5. I normally do not like to get involved with the politics of the hair industry. Dr. Cinik hires company to recruit patients that like to steal photos from other clinics. http://www.eagle-travel.com/item/370/hair-transplant You will see this link where a Hasson and Wong patient is used and stated that one of the two surgeons is Dr. Cinik, I have enclosed the screenshot,.
  6. Well deserved. HTsoon is a great choice. HIs input and knowledge in the past was always with the goal of helping posters.
  7. Hrsp People like you are very valuable to this forum. You are here because you want to help and gain nothing by doing it. I enjoy reading your post and understand your passion. Glad the misunderstand got figured out.
  8. No I did not get the ink tested, not sure how I would do that and if so I am sure it would be expensive. I am not familiar with anyone else that got cancer after SMP. Not sure what was in the ink, it is the same ink used by alot of SMP clinic and is supplied from Italy. Again I want to state I probably will never know what caused my cancer but I think its important to share my story.
  9. BTW I forgot to mention at Hasson and Wong we did an italian patient a few years ago that received 17500 hairs (9000 grafts). We also did another Italian last year I believe the hair count was about 16500 (8400 grafts). When a clinic makes statements first do not mean much (without a result) and are incorrect , this show a lack of knowledge or professionalism. Smoke and mirrors is a marketing style used by clinics that are trying to get you to ignore the most important aspect, the result. These type of things are red flags, telling you to research more and most likely stay away from these types of clinics.
  10. Regardless of the number of grafts results are important. I recommend anyone that considering any clinic should get as much information as possible. The best information is from actual posters that are legit and have gone to that clinic. Every clinic in the world regardless how good or bad they actually are, believe they are amongst the world best. In my opinion the best clinic usually have one office for surgery and the clinic is actually run by the transplant doctors and not by a businessman. I would never consider a clinic that is a chain and has many different locations around the world. This is not Mcdonalds and quality control is not easy to duplicate in more than one location.
  11. After all that I have been through I will never do SMP again. As for recommending it I would tell the truth. I would share my story and then give them my opinion about SMP. This what I believe 1) I am very happy with how my SMP looks or looked. I still have SMP and in some places, it has been there for more than 5 years, I did not think this is normal 2) If done by the right person or company SMP looks very natural and great. I have seem some photos from Marks work and it does look top notch. 3) At no fault of the tattoo artist but sometime even with the best, SMP can fade very quickly (less than a month). This has alot more to do with the person than the SMP company. Again I am talking about top SMP companies. I have enclosed some picture after I lost my hair during my second fight with cancer. All there is on my head is SMP, the side were done more than three years before the top was done a few time , last time I believe 10 month earlier. I will tell you a funny story. I was seeing my radiologist shortly after these photos to discuss my full body radiation. She told me your hair looks very thick but I have to tell you that it may not come back that thick. She did not know I had lost all my hair with chemo and all she was seeing was SMP.
  12. Thanks I agree. http://www.cbc.ca/news/health/tattoo-health-1.4288837 interesting article. Tattoo ink has been known to leak into lymph node as the picture shows. There could be many reasons for this but this is a possibility. It is not known if this causes cancer or not. There is no need to me to discuss this more since I have already shared my views and story.
  13. MarkWestonHair Mark I do not have an financial gain or loss sharing my story. Just to let you know I have a cousin and her husband (head of department) that are lymphoma specialists at the Mayo Clinic, so believe me I have asked alot of questions. I am not going to get into the details. I got cancer soon after my smp, went into remission got smp again and the cancer returned. Now this could be coincidence but for me it is IMPORTANT to share my story. People can do whatever they want, to me it does not make a difference. As I stated before I have nothing to gain or lose. Let me ask you a question. Do you guarantee on a contract your clients signs that SMP does not cause cancer? Probably not because nobody knows for sure and if someone get cancer after your SMP it could have nothing to do with it. I understand this is your living and you want to protect your investment. My intentions are not to hurt anyone or tell anyone not to do SMP. I said it before it was reading the same story by someone else and had never had cancer, I would get SMP done because I would say even if the odds are low, it could never happen to me. :confused:
  14. couple more questions for FUT - the longer your hair in the donor region the day of the surgery, the less noticeable the scar/staples will be in the few weeks after the surgery? or do they need to shave the whole donor region down to a certain length? or can they just shave the strip that’s needed? longer hair would cover the scar/staples nicely then All that is shaving during the day of surgery is the recipient area and where the hair is taken in the donor. When the doctor takes the donor from the back he will only shave the area needed. Once the area is closed the existing hair covers the staples. The remaining donor hair will not be shaved but keep it at least 2-3 cm when you come to the clinic. There is no length of hair that is too long in the back before you come. I hope this answers your question. Good luck at the Super Bowl, hopefully your quarterback has better time management than McNabb did in 2005 and beat the Patriots this time!
