  1. Hello all, I finally bit the bullet. To give everyone a rundown I’m 39 years old this year. I live out of Austin, TX but I’m from closer to the Houston area. I started thinning when I was 18 and I tried everything to slow down the process, admittedly without a lot of knowledge back then. This was 1998 and I didn’t know much about propecia or minoxidil. I tried shampoos and all kinds of gimmicks. I did try propecia and minoxidil liquid but because I didn’t know enough about it and didn’t see immediate results I just stopped and got on with my life. It all started in my crown and then over the course of a decade marched its way forward toward my hairline. While my crown was very noticeably thin my hairline and frontal third stayed noticeably strong until my mid to semi late 20’s. At 24 I went and had my first consultation at a Bosley clinic in Houston and the whole experience made me feel uneasy. The doctor wasn’t really concerned with my crown which is where all the thinning was happening and wanted to lower my hairline which was still a teenage hairline. It was less than four fingers down on my forehead and still really thick. Ah, how I miss that wall of hair... lol. I politely passed but they called me every single day for two years straight trying to get me to come in for the transplant. They wanted to charge me 20K to lower my hairline and sprinkle some grafts in the crown. Knowing what I know now I think back about how they didn’t even bother to mention propecia to help slow loss. Bullet. Dodged. I got married in 2010 which ended really badly very soon after and my hair really started to go after that. Around 2012 I went to Dr Brad Limmer and got on Propecia/biotin/minoxidil foam to slow things down. Sadly he passed away the next year almost to the day of my consultation with him. I’m an actor and I was staying in Houston with a friend in 2014 while filming a movie in Louisiana when someone mentioned Dr. Arocha. I scheduled a consultation and we immediately got on very well. I loved his attitude, how much knowledge he wanted to share, that he was very honest about what we could achieve. I was traveling a lot though and it just wasn’t the right time to pull the trigger. While I traveled around the states for jobs I would schedule consultations with other doctors. I spoke with Feller and Bloxham, Gabel, Hasson and Wong, and others-some through email, FaceTime, in person. Ultimately it came down to me feeling the most comfortable with Arocha although Gabel was pretty close. I’m a diffused thinner and if my father and maternal grandfather are any indication I’m going to end up a 6 on the Norwood’s scale. I was going to go ahead with the procedure last year but my wife (I got married again in 2017) and I found out we were pregnant with twins so I decided to wait until things settled down with them. Side note: I did not stop taking finasteride when we found out we were pregnant and our babies our beautiful and healthy and at the time of this post almost 6 months old. The Big Day! I got to Arocha’s office a little after 7:30 am (traffic in Houston sucks) I signed the paperwork. We took some preop pics. Dr Arocha designed the hairline basically within my existing one. The plan was to work through the existing hairline, fill in the temple corner recession, and bulk up the frontal forelock. We discussed what we would do next year, reassess the front or go ahead and work on the crown. Everybody was really nice. I was visibly nervous and my blood pressure was a little high due to my being a little antsy. The Valium quickly helped out with that. When they were injecting the numbing solution into the back of my scalp I noticed I started shaking and feeling queasy so I spoke up immediately. They turned me over and raised my legs and put ice on my chest. I almost immediately felt better. Dr Arocha was there and cracked a joke about how I was his first patient of the day but probably his 7000th patient altogether so there was really nothing to worry about. TBH I wasn’t nervous about his ability to help me as much as I was just nervous about this giant step I was taking. After this procedure there was no going back. I turned back over when I was ready and they took the strip out. They kept complementing me on how good my donor was however I never got a number from them. I asked but they were just like, “don’t worry, it’s really really good.” I believe I heard say as they were looking at it that it looked like 80 to 90. Dr Arocha started to make the incisions and we talked for awhile before I dozed off and the next thing I know is I’m waking up to salmon kabobs, a killer salad, and potato and black bean soup. I eat up and then I go back to the chair where the techs start to insert the grafts. We chat for quite awhile. Dr Arocha was there for quite a bit of it as he would interject in our conversations. Every once in a while he would remind them about this or that concerning my grafts. I dozed off again and when I woke up we were basically done. They informed me that while I was out they put PRP all over my head. They went over cleaning instructions and we took some post op pics. My wife came in to pick me up and everyone came out to meet our twins. After that we were off and back to Austin. The ride back was pretty rough. There was a lot of pressure in my head and I got a pretty bad headache. Even with the pain pills. It didn’t even last the entire three hour drive though. I’m attaching some pics. Some preop through day two. I don’t have any pics with the design yet. I’m going to speak to Arocha’s office and see if I can get my hands on the hairline design.
  2. Today I wanted to present what is likely our most common and most "classic" case: the 2,500 graft -- or 2,600 graft in this instance -- FUT case. While we see patients with all types of hair loss, it seems like the most common are males with advanced -- or advancing -- hair loss, and we typically say they will likely want to do two procedures over time: a 2,500-ish graft FUT mega-session now for the hairline, frontal scalp and transition into the mid-scalp; and another 2,500-ish graft FUT mega-session later to finish the mid-scalp and address the crown. Doing two large FUTs tends to, in my opinion, provide good coverage from "front to back" and leave patients in the best situation for the long-term. They should have a good incision line scar and plenty of grafts left for more potential work (done via FUT or FUE) if needed. So here is one of those "classic cases:" Male physician in his late 20's headed to a NW V-VI pattern; we recommended two planned FUT procedures of approximately 2,500 grafts a piece; he did the first (hairline, frontal scalp, and mid-scalp transition) in winter of 2017, and the second (finished the mid-scalp and crown) in winter of 2018. Here are a few comparison pictures of his 10 month results from the first procedure. As usual, I highly encourage all to watch the video. Video is the ULTIMATE way to present a hair transplant result. This video includes the result, detailed comb-through (HD), and footage of the incision line (FUT scar).

  3. Hi all! On may 16th I had the blessing of being operated on by Dr.Bloxham Dealing with two procedures in which the density was very poor had me very hurt and felt like I lost hope. Dr. Bloxham was very understanding and in a genuine matter made it seem like he was on a mission to help me! This is my third procedure I will document my journey to help others! Dont lose hope. I'm really hoping 1216 grafts is enough for that very dense front and decent sides that I have been trying to get Overall as a young guy these procedures took a huge toll on me financially, since I've been basically on my own since I was 18 and have very little relationship with family. I'm hoping this is the last speed bump and I can move forward confidently. Pictures: 1st - no procedures 2nd - no procedures 3rd - Final result FIRST procedure (temples were still extremely weak just didn't have a pic of that side so it's looks decent but it's not) 4th - 7-8 months result of SECOND procedure 5th 7-8 months SECOND procedure temples 6th - day of surgery Third Procedure 7th - day of surgery Third Procedure
  4. All individuals experience hair loss differently. We frequently see patients with small changes or confined areas of thinning who almost feel guilty coming in to see a hair transplant doctor because their friends, partners, and family continually tell them that the hair loss is "nothing" and they should just "forget about it and move on." However, it is a big deal to these patients and the psychological stress and distraction from the hair loss often prevents them from focusing on bigger, better things. The patient in today's presentation falls into this category; he is a male who, most outsiders would probably agree, had quite "good hair" in general. I do not think the average person on the street would ever think he was thinning. However, he came from a long family of males with "perfect" hair, and, although his hair was still "good," his hair was simply not as "good" as it used to be. He had some pretty classic thinning throughout the entire frontal band, and really just wanted to thicken it. Long story short: despite the minimal amount of hair loss he had, this was bothering him and he was ready to take care of it. I discussed the reality of the situation with him thoroughly and I did believe he could "beef up" that area, and I also felt confident that it was unlikely (though not certain) he would progress to advanced hair loss. Regardless, we decided to start him off as an FUT to hedge our bets and leave his donor in good shape in case he did need a significant amount in the future. We ended up utilizing 2,100 grafts to place his hairline back where it originally was (frontal hairline only, no temporal hairline work needed) and densely pack the frontal band. He visited us 6 months later, and I was very pleased to see that the worry and distraction his hair loss caused him had vanished. Here are a few "comparison" shots of his case. Below is a detailed comb-through video which includes footage of his incision line. I highly recommend all interested patients watch the video. Remember, hair loss is about identity; if you feel off, distracted, or stressed by any changes in the scalp, it is okay to see a hair restoration doctor and discuss your options. There is nothing wrong with taking care of this, despite how some may make you feel. Thanks for reading and watching. Dr. Blake Bloxham Feller & Bloxham Medical, PC
  5. Dev, While it is unfortunate you had to stop the preventive medication, I do not think you are in bad shape here. The approach you took with the hair transplant was perfect for someone in your situation: FUT mega-session with a conservative hairline. You -- and the clinic -- put yourself in the absolute best position for the "long term," and this is regardless of whether or not you are on preventive medication. You are set to continue with surgical restoration if you do lose more hair, and this is probably what you will need to do. Not a bad position to be in at all. Just continue with FUT until you cannot do any more, and then switch to FUE if you need or want more work (including putting some grafts into the scar). I frequently work on patients who cannot or simply will not utilize preventive medications, and the goal with these patients is to start with the approach you took here and move forward as I outlined above. So while more surgery may be in your future, I think you are probably in pretty good shape here. And, by the way, the work looks great as well. I hope this helps.

  6. One of the more debated topics on the forum is whether or not "young" patients should undergo hair transplant surgery. The controversy revolves around the fact that these patients are very early in the hair loss process and have an unpredictable future ahead. Using too many grafts now or starting with an "aggressive" plan may set a patient up for a lifetime of multiple surgeries or deplete donor resources before acceptable coverage can be achieved. There is also controversy surrounding the donor area in young patients: Will it thin aggressively and end up only providing a small "strip" of safe donor in the future? Are grafts taken from the "expanded" donor area in a young patient actually safe or will these thin in the future? For these, and other, reasons, many hair transplant doctors do not like to perform hair transplants on "young" patients. While cutoffs vary, many do not like to take patients under the age of 25 and others want to wait until their hair loss pattern has really revealed itself -- which can often take decades. My philosophy on young patients is a little different. I frequently perform hair transplantation on appropriate "young" patients as long as a few absolute "musts" are understood and accepted by the patient. If the patient is mature thinking and accepts the "long term" reality of hair transplantation at a young age and the potential for future surgeries up the road, I feel like they do quite well. In order to successfully undergo hair transplantation at a young age, I feel a patient must acknowledge and really feel comfortable accepting the following: 1) We must start conservative with the hairline. Many young patients remember a very low, flat, immature hairline from only a few years prior. And sometimes it is hard to get them to understand that this is not advisable. If a young patient insists on rebuilding an immature hairline, I do not think they should have a hair transplant. However, if the patient understands that hair transplants are permanent and the hairline must "age well;" if they understand that starting conservative now will allow us to get coverage from front to back as they continue to thin and we can go lower later once things cool off and the majority of the scalp has been treated with hair transplants; and if they understand that the lower we go now, the more grafts we use in the front that we now cannot use in other areas, then I think they are good candidates. 2) We must start with FUT Not to stoke the flames here at all, but I insist on starting all young patients as FUT. Not only is this the only way to truly maximize the amount of donor grafts available over a lifetime, but it is also the only way to really take continuously from the small true safe donor area (SDA) zone. We never know how these patients may thin up the road, and grafts taken from even slightly outside the safest part of the donor area may be susceptible to hair loss and fall out in the future. We need to maximize donor potential and only work where we absolutely know it is safe until these patients are older. Then we can usually augment with FUE. 3) The patient must accept that he will very likely want/require more procedures up the road Androgenic alopecia is a progressive process and while hair transplants do thicken and restore thinned areas, the procedure does not treat the progressive hair loss. Patients who are thin enough to seek hair transplantation at a young age will likely continue to thin in the future. With a hair transplant plan "started" in one area, the patient will likely want more. We never design anything that would absolutely require a patient to have more surgery up the road, but chances are that you will want to address additional thinning regions at a later date. The patient needs to accept that this is likely not a "one and done" deal. 4) We really should (maybe not "must") start in the front and work back The frontal third (hairline, frontal scalp, and slight transition into the mid-scalp) is the most visible region of the scalp. It also is responsible for re-framing the face and really creating the appearance of thick, full hair from the perspective of how most of the world sees you (IE "front on" or from the sides). Furthermore, if this region is done properly the rest of the scalp can thin and still look natural. For these reasons, we really should address this area first in young guys. Many times younger patients are focused on the "bald spot" in the back, but starting in the front and working back if and when necessary creates the greatest cosmetic impact and prevents creating anything that may look unnatural up the road. To better demonstrate this philosophy, I want to share a case: The patient in this video is a young guy in his early 20's; he's in that transition between college and the rest of his life. He has aggressive thinning for his age and is likely to become a NW VI up the road. I discussed all of the above with him and he completely agreed and wanted to move forward. We did a 3,000 graft FUT and everything went very well. I saw him back at 6 and 12 months. The first video features an explanation of how I approach young patients (similar to what I wrote above) and a detailed 6 month result video. The second video is an update at 12 months. 6 month results: 12 month results: As a final note: I do think all young patients considering hair transplant should do their research carefully. If you do it as out outlined above, I think you will be happy for many years to come; however, there are some potential "pitfalls" for younger patients. So do your research, ask your questions, and remember to start conservative and keep the long-term in mind. Hope everyone enjoyed the presentation. Look forward to the discussion.

  7. Hi, folks. I'm a 60 yr old male who's had multiple hair transplants ( HT ), with 4 different doctors. My first HT was in 1984 when the technology was in the Stone Age compared to today. As a result, some of my surgeries have been as much about remediation of large, poorly- placed plugs, transected grafts, etc, as it's been about trying to add new hair. My last HT was in 2013 with Dr. Feller. It was my first HT with him, and by far the best. He's outstanding. But now Feller has cut back on the number of surgeries he's doing. This is likely my LAST hair transplant since I have very little donor left, so i really wanted to make the right choice for a surgeon. After considering going many different surgeons my gut told me to return to Feller Bloxham. I'm going to do my HT on April 30th with Dr. Blake Bloxham, Feller's partner at Feller Bloxham Hair. I met with Dr. Bloxham last fall was greatly impressed with his professionalism, knowledge, and empathy for my situation. He estimates that he can do another FUT of ~ 1200 grafts from my remaining donor area. I'm confident Dr. Bloxham and his staff will do an outstanding job, and am really looking to the procedure. I realize ~1200 grafts is nothing these days, but that's about all I have left for a strip. All the previous HT's have left me with very little donor area. I'll post some pictures when I get a chance. This is likely my LAST HT since I have very little donor left. Now, I have only the left side of my head ( above my ear and running towards the back of my head ) available for a donor strip. I have thinning in the middle of my scalp that runs from front to back. Dr. Bloxham's goal is to provide density to the middle front, as well as provide more density to the thinning middle that goes to back to my crown. My crown area has the thinnest coverage. I've been told many times that the front area is much easier to get better results. Dr. Bloxham plans to go from front to back until the grafts run out. My plan after this last HT is to try SMP to address the remaining lack of coverage/density that might exist. So my game plan consists of a combination of a final HT and then SMP? Have other people been in this same situation? Thanks for letting me know.
  8. Hi, folks. Finished my HT with Dr. Bloxham in Tuesday. Great experience working with him, his crew, Cathy, Bella and others. Very professional and kind people. This is likely my last HT as my donor area is pretty tapped out from previous HT's. These last two procedures with Feller-Bloxham ( 2013 and now ) were the best experiences I had by far. Now comes the waiting and hoping that my scalp heals up well. I may do SMP in the future but will wait and see how this new HT grows out. I highly recommend Dr. Bloxham and his staff to anyone who has experienced substandard results previously. They are the best in my book.
  9. It may be unsurprising to many long-time readers of the forum, but one of the most popular topics right now seems to revolve around FUT versus FUE. However, this topic is not an "FUE vs. FUT" debate, but is a very good question revolving around which technique a patient should start with and the best way to utilize both. Specifically, in patients looking to maximize donor potential and future surgeries, which technique should be used first: FUT or FUE? As many may know, I am an advocate of clinics who can offer and regularly perform both, and I typically advise patients who have uncertain or advanced levels of hair loss and may want multiple procedures to start with FUT. Because I am a "fan" of this approach, I wanted to share a presentation of a patient who went this route. The patient first presented to the clinic with classic frontal hair loss several years ago. He wanted to "test the waters" a bit with hair transplantation, so I did a very conservative frontal band procedure via FUT. He did very well and after seeing that hair transplant surgery really works, he decided to "dive in" and undergo a more aggressive hairline lowering and dense pack frontal band procedure. I did this via FUT as well. After two strip surgeries he was fairly confident with the scalp in general except for a small spot in the crown -- which had been static for years -- that he wanted to address. This procedure only required 500 - 800 grafts and he decided that since the bulk of the work was done via FUT and he was happy with the incision line (which was still very good after two harvests), he wanted to now switch to FUE. Because we started with FUT, I was happy to do a conservative pass via FUE and address the crown. Here are a few "before and after" comparisons after the two strip procedures: And here is a very thorough walk-through video I encourage all those wondering which technique they should start with to watch. Not only does the video include comb-through of the results, it also features a discussion about the approach, video of his incision line after FUT #1 and FUT #2, video of me performing the FUE procedure, and a post-op of the FUE crown surgery. Also, as a little "bonus" here: I have included video from his 6 month visit, just in case any members need reassurance that results do change from the 6 to 12 month mark: Thank you for watching. I hope this sparks some good discussion and I look forward to the conversation. Dr. Blake Bloxham Feller & Bloxham Medical, PC
  10. Hi, conan. I'm in the same situation. See Upcoming FUT with Dr. Bloxham . From my pix you can see I've lost a ton of hair since my 20's. From your pix, brighter lighting and uncombing your hair over the thin areas would provide a bettter idea of your back 2/3's hair situation. You should get evaluated by a good surgeon-- in person, as you noted-- to make sure he can examine your scalp closely. Dr.Wong is a great surgeon I've heard. I'm down to my last HT. I've chosen to do it with Dr. Bloxham this Tuesday ( the 30th). I'm very excited about this. I'm 60 yrs old, so my hairline pattern is pretty much established. Now, given my extremely limited donor area I'm down to my last HT. I considered a number of surgeons before deciding on Dr Bloxham. I'd had a transplant with Dr. Feller in 2013. The results were great, but now Dr. Feller has reduced his schedule a lot. So I chose Dr. Bloxham at the same practice ( Feller Bloxham Hair ) and am very confident he will do a great job. I met with him at the end of last year. He's a great guy, very trustworthy, and understands difficult cases like ours. I've had previous HT's with different surgeons in the past. I wish I'd discovered the Feller-Bloxham practice from the beginning because my first HT's with other surgeons were bad. Not that much scarring, but the big plugs they used in the 80-90's required remedial work. Anyway, if I were you I'd choose your "Option 1- keep the meds and do another surgery." That would preserve your hair in the back 2/3 's and give you the most options in the future. With your limited available donor area I think that's your best option. Don't stop the Finasteride. I agree with what others said, it's not going anywhere. And it's doing its job; you're not having any side effects, so all's good. I'm also considering SMP in the future for adding the appearance of greater density. Would you consider that as well for your crown area?
  11. Hi Everyone, I wanted to share a good example of the way I like to showcase hair transplant results: HD video footage with "slick" wet hair. The reason I like this is because there is simply no way to fake it; it is a brutally honest representation of what can be achieved with modern hair transplant surgery. This type of presentation gives the prospective patient a very clear example of how they may look in 6-12 months, and allows them to make an informed decision as to whether or not they would be happy with a hair transplant. The patient in this video is male with classic androgenic alopecia (genetic male pattern hair loss) exhibiting a Norwood IV pattern. He takes no hair loss medications. We evaluated the patient and decided to recreate an age-appropriate hairline, perform a dense pack of the frontal scalp, and strategically work into his mid-scalp with 2,500 grafts using the FUT technique. The video shows his pre-operative appearance, the surgical plan, intra-op. and post-op. photos, a comb-through of his 6 month results, a comb-through of his incision line scar at 6 months, and a few "before and after" comparison shots. I am only going to share a few "teaser" images here, because I really encourage watching the video itself: Thank you for watching. I hope you enjoyed. Dr. Blake Bloxham

  13. Hi Folks, Long time lurker; My very first post here with the intent to share and contribute based on my upcoming surgery in India with Darling buds and most importantly “ My results “ in the next few months. I feel morally obligated to contribute at least something back to this community that offers : A worldwide network of HT experts, reputed Senior members sharing invaluable info, Top rated HT surgeons positioning their point of views and most importantly "real patients sharing real stories". Background Male in mid-thirties from Canada; NW 3 - Less/More. Past 6 years were dark and depressing. Living in a fool’s paradise; using Toppik daily assuming everything’s fine but somewhere at a deeper level; it continuously bothered me. Finally in 2019; I made the big decision to get a HT. This website is the main reason as to why I was able to solidify on my research, move ahead with a concrete decision and was able to find one of the best doctor (just being positive here) as per my checklist/strict criteria. Special thanks to the Creator of this website – Kudos to the brain that kicked off this humanitarian initiative as it continues to educate millions of potential patients like myself. Why Darling Buds India (I guess they changed the name to 5 Rivers Hospital ) This piece takes forever to decide especially for someone like me who spends gazillions of hours on the Internet/YouTube/Forums. I was always skeptical about giving my Head to someone to be operated; so consulted with many Canadian, American, European, Indian and Turkish clinics. Many reputed names like Dr. Rahal ( Known as the hairline king from Canada), Dr Acar ( Cosmedica Turkey), Dr. Erdogan ( Turkey), Aestimed ( Turkey), LA Hair ( USA), Qunomedical ( Belgium & German clinics), Dr. Cinik ( Turkey) and the list goes on……………………………………………. but None fitted my checklist in it's entirety reflecting 8 Key deciding factors that was prepared after extensive research for years 🙄 : 1. Max cost under 10,000 CAD ( 7500 USD ) for 3500-4000 Grafts to be able to achieve maximum density in my case. YES, I decided to find the best treatment within this range. IMHO, paying this much should suffice in getting you a world class, still affordable HT in today’s age with advanced Technologies, Globalization, the power of internet and competitive market. It's costing me around 9000 CAD ( including some expensive flight tickets) with Dr. Bhatti which seems adequate for the reputation he has or rather a steal ( not sure - will tell later) If budget wasn’t a constraint, I would’ve booked Dr. Rahal ( Canada ) who is local to me OR Dr. Baubac ( Alvi Armani USA) more importantly to save myself from the hassle of flying 20 hours one way, then drive to a different city, book a hotel for a week, apply for a visa, Take few weeks of vacation from work etc. Dr Rahal charges 8 CAD per FUE, most other clinics would cost the same in N. America for FUE Treatment. It’s costing me around 2.40 CAD with Dr. Bhatti ( includes all international/ Local flights, Visa, Hotel, Food, Cab etc.). If you compare Dr Bhatti's fee with his peers who fall in the same reputed arena of global doctors, I think most would sign this off as a great offering for hair loss patients globally. Eugenix quoted around 4 CAD per graft but it was for DHI method. They produced some great results lately and they are the inventors of DHI which is now adapted globally; goes to show that they are researchers also - very impressive. As of 2019, I think Dr. Bhatti and Eugenix should be compared as top players if India is the selected destination for your HT Journey ( My comparison below) I almost finalized Eugenix over Dr. Bhatti but then based on my research, took a U Turn : Eugenix positive aspects: 1. Biggest is DHI - OUT/IN grafts within minutes. Definitely better method as compared to Traditional FUE . I could only find positives so far, no negatives on DHI. It's hard to logically beat DHI method with traditional FUE; so no doctor should even try it IMO. I wish Dr Bhatti would offer DHI to his patients by now ☹ 2. Clinics are located in major cities like Delhi and Mumbai. No need to drive / fly again from major airport all the way to Chandigarh. Eugenix Negative aspects: 1. Some patients mentioned that they were taken for a ride. Eugenix Docs prey on foreign nationals; after or during mid surgery – Dr. Bansal asked for 500 more grafts payment as required and payment must be done during the middle of the operation ( insane); also no breakdown/reasoning was provided in the end. On the contrary, Darling buds has returned some fee to few patients to their surprise which is a classy act of ethical business in my opinion (hard to find) 2. Eugenix costs are almost double than Darling buds( quite expensive for many) but anyways DHI is more costlier than traditional FUE globally and if results are better with more graft survival rate, most patients wouldn't mind paying more. 3. Eugenix is run in a satellite office format, more than one location and hard to get a hold of prime doctors - Dr. Sethi and Dr. Bansal where as Dr. Bhatti provides a peace of mind with one location, one clinic, one doctor who is also the owner of that entire facility with 15 good staff members well trained under him in a peaceful non polluted city near a hill station. #3 was a critical factor in my decision to go with Dr. Bhatti In short, I would’ve loved DHI for best results but I settled with FUE for now Note: Out of thousands, This site recommends ONLY 2 surgeons from Turkey, 7 surgeons from India and 1 from Canada ( I was surprised to see only Dr. Rahal in the list, yes Hasson is there but they're again advocates of FUT ), so HRN really helped me short list 10 surgeons before making the final call 2. ONLY FUE for ME – My heart said a Big “No“ to a linear scar; doesn’t matter if some Doctors persuade you with somewhat genuine reasoning's to avoid FUE such as : FUE provides Less density, FUT offers more grafts and saves Donor area as untouched for future sessions, FUE is a blind process etc. Dr. Feller and Dr. Soni ( Medispa India) seems like the two biggest advocates of FUT over FUE and I agree with some of their explanations as it sounds logical. Dr. Soni really pushed me to sign up with FUT and said his scar technique is different. Promised that he will close it in a way where almost no scarring is visible . It was tough buying into that argument, additionally recent negative reviews about him and I finally decided to brush him aside at that point. 3. Doctor MUST perform the operation (No technicians) – I could only find someone as reputed as Dr. Bhatti who performs 80% of the procedures that includes Hair trimming (to feel your hair ), Anesthesia, FUE Extractions with motorized punch and Incisions. In Turkey where I was almost sold at one point, all operations are run by Technicians. Not a Plastic surgeon, no educational background/ competency level ( it's scary as they're known as the butchers of HT industry) I wish Dr. Bhatti would implant the grafts too ( not his nurses) for extra cost but I guess it will be a tedious job for a busy surgeon to sit for another 4 hours or so ....... Am I asking for too much 4. World class facility matching North American standards : with Heart rate monitoring, proper blood tests, blood pressure check up, spotless , Face coverings during entire operation and sterile environment. 5. Super microscopes and Magnifiers is a must ( Most Turkish clinics operate with naked eyes, when I asked they tried to sell me bull *&**** ) This is extremely important during all 4 phases of operation : Extraction – To make sure proper gaps are left in between grafts in the donor area and get the right angle before using the punch. Sorting – To count how many pure singles, doubles, triples and quads ( if any ) are collected. Incisions – To ensure least collateral damage, magnifier will show 6 x scalp surface so during incisions, holes are made at the right angle, depth and only on bald scalp areas ( not where you've some fine hairs). This should also minimize some shock loss in the post op phase. Implantation - Imperative to only use pure singles / baby soft hairs in the very first few rows of hairline and Temples. If by mistake, they implant doubles – it will give a pluggy look and I would rate that transplant as 50% failed right then and there. If during implant, nurses grab a multi - haired graft, at least microscopes will allow them to revisit to find a pure single graft and then insert it in the right spot. Joe Tillman's video is quite helpful : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MeQ4ZvEHb7Y 6. Doctor should have a solid reputation on major forums, hair restoration network, should be well read, traveled, have some global exposure, recommended by Bald-truth, Spex and many other HT mentors like Joe Tillman. Dr. Bhatti checks all those boxes. Yes – there are some mixed opinions about him (and every other Top HT surgeon out there) but perfection is impossible to achieve; so I decided to just look at the bigger picture and go for it. 7. Detailed info, pre op care, post op care, regular contacts and supporting your patients in their hours of greatest needs is of utmost importance. Its well know that Dr. Bhatti, Shera ( his rep) , California would contact their ex. Patients regarding some concerns, would stand by them and not disappear. This was impressive. 8. Patient advisor should be genuine, honest and straightforward – So far, Shera has been awesome, friendly and taking care of all my minor/ major concerns. Always reachable, quick responses and a real time patient who has experienced the same Doctor few years ago first hand. In the long run, it helps to have a contact like him for small chats if need be. I will continue to share my Journey with Darling buds and also, highlight If any red flags are there. So far, I’m just one naive internet researcher in this field who talks based on theories and hypothetical situations, I don’t have any practical experiences yet. Assuming I've made a good decision by choosing this clinic (over others) and trying to keep a positive mindset hoping I will be in good hands is the only thing I can do now. One Sr. Member said it wisely – “For Dr. Bhatti and his staff ( or other clinics) 18th March will be just another day with another patient like thousands came before and will come after, but for a patient who’s been researching on this constantly day/night, it’s a big life event and 18th is one of the most important day of his life after which either he could regain his lost confidence or could loose it forever “ After all, handing off your head to someone for the entire day isn’t one easy decision I’ve seen members here supporting each other against doctors if results aren’t satisfactory. That speaks volumes and the main reason as to why I joined here to gain support from my so called “Anonymous hair restoration family” Dr. Bhatti's hairlines were talked about – not too dense? Any suggestions? Should I revisit this with him ? I don't want a sparse hairline but Not sure if this was an old issue (one -off) Also, I’ve not met Dr Bhatti for any F2F consulting yet or a video consultation, plan is to meet him a day before my procedure. So far, Shera is my driving force. I’m hoping for a life changing experience (like many others), regain my lost confidence and I always say “ Hope “ is something that brings us to these Doctor’s doorsteps. Yes finance and reviews are important aspects but we all hope to be treated in the best possible way during our special treatment day. A little daunting for me to fly all the way, get operated in a surgical room, holes in my head but I’m collecting all the courage in this world to get this done. Shera is helping like one true Samaritan If some of you are able to read this completely, my apologies for such a long note but this is the only forum where I am able to write everything anonymously and vent out if need be. My Journey to be continued……………………………………………………………………………………............................................
  14. The dreaded "cracking." I think I receive at least one email per week from an understandably nervous post-op patient. Rest assured that this is expected. You did not lose an entire row of grafts, nor did you some how dislodge a perfect row or "chunk" of grafts. I have heard differing explanation as to why doctors think this occurs. I believe these cracks occur because the skin contracts as it heals. When you have thousands of small wounds covering tissue that has been stretched and swollen, you will get contractions that will appear like little rivers, canyons, cracks, or roads in the grafted area -- I have heard it described using all these different illustrative analogies. It happens even more frequently when dense packing is utilized. It can also appear more dramatic when you are scabbed up and a larger region of superficial scabbing (with or without some hairs attached) falls out. Rest assured, however, that even if you see these "cracks" or missing "chunks" above the surface, the grafts are safely anchored below the skin. They may be temporarily displaced from where they will eventually settle, but they are secure. Many people also assume that areas were missed during the transplant itself, and this is typically not the case. Just part of the healing process. Graft dislodging is a pretty specific event that happens within the first 3 days (when true follicular units are used). If you did not see an active bleed accompanied by an event within the first few days post-op, it is very unlikely that you lost a graft. And this to me just appears like the classic contraction from healing. Of course you should always keep your doctor in the loop and run this by him/her as well. Hope this helps.

  15. Hi Everyone, Many of the members and frequent contributors to the forums are obviously very knowledgeable about the hair transplant process. At this point, it is probably difficult for most to even remember a time when they were not "fluent" in the world of hair transplant surgery. But think back to when you first discovered hair restoration or first began your own research process. It is overwhelming and many ask themselves: "Where do I even begin?" Most patients have many "frequently asked" questions about even the most basic aspects of surgery; "How is a hair transplant performed?" "What will it feel like?" "What will I look like after and when can I go back to work?" "When will I see results?" To try and help some of those new to the hair transplant process, I put together a video narrating one patient's "hair transplant journey" from day 0 to month 6. While it does not cover every single aspect of his process, it does touch on the highlights of what most researching patients want to know. This includes: the steps of the surgery itself and the surgical experience; the immediate post-op; getting back to work; the beloved "ugly duckling" phase; and growth and results. The patient in the video underwent a 2,500 graft FUT mega-session, and his 6 month results are included as well; so those who are more knowledgeable about the process may want to watch just to see these. Thanks for watching and commenting. I truly hope new members finds this helpful. Dr. Blake Bloxham Feller & Bloxham Medical, PC
  16. Konior, Hasson and Wong, and Shapiro are top FUT doctors. I'm sure there are more, but those are the ones I'm familiar with. I think Dr. Feller, Bloxham and Cooley are pretty good too, but I haven't done that much research on them. If you do another big FUE session your donor area is most likely gonna be done, but if you opt for FUT you're still gonna have areas above and below the scar to take from. It's pretty simple math. Plus, FUT is cheaper if money is an issue for you.
  17. Greetings all, I've been a lurker of these forums and other related forums for a while now, and I would like to share my hair transplant experience/results by Dr. Bloxham of Feller & Bloxham who performed a FUT of 2500 grafts on me back in July of 2017. I e-mailed him a few days back thanking him for the amazing results and apologizing for taking such a while to get back to him (Told him he could interpret that as a good sign given that I was enjoying life with my new head of hair!). I couldn't be happier with my result! I hope this post helps someone out! All photos below are taken with dry hair (with the exception of the immediate post op photo) , no product in them whatsoever (only styled with my hands or a comb). I also got on Finasteride 1mg daily for the first time roughly 2 weeks post-op and have been on it since. Some basic info about me: currently 26, was 25 when I received the transplant. Multiple instances of hair loss on my fathers side (including my father), none on my mothers side. Hair loss was most prominent on my temples (Left temple being the worst). It's hard to say when I first started experiencing hair loss but if I had to take an educated and conservative guess it would be in my early 20s (20-22). During the procedure: Head was shaved down, got numbed up. Dr. Bloxham performed the slits and kept me alert with good conversation, genuinely enjoyed talking to him. 3-4 technicians performed the graft installations - they were great as well and thoroughly enjoyed talking to them. Post-op: I slept upright at a 30-45 degree angle for a about a week and lightly rinsed my hair/grafts with shampoo & water mixture in a cup which formed suds. I let my hair air dry afterwards, didn't use a towel until 2 weeks in really (and even then I would be gentle with it). Nothing else for my post-op routine. Photos: Pre-Op: Immediately Post-op: Roughly 1 year post-op (August 2nd, 2018) August 14, 2018 (Shorter hair, after a haircut) January 2019 March 24, 2019 March 31, 2019
  18. Here's my experience ( not so detailed for many ) - PRE OP, During OP and POST OP as this might help some folks who are on the fence like I was before I met Darling buds team and for folks who would like to live the experience thru someone else's eyes ( I always wanted similar insight before making a decision like Lennney's recent review really helped me ) Special thanks @Lennney I'd most likely post a new thread later ( as this thread got sidetracked now) with additional details as I recall them and add constructive feedback for the clinic ( if any) PREOP Landed at Delhi airport on Sunday 1:00 am - 17th march , some minor hiccups but finally took cab for decent price to Chandigarh ( 3 hour journey only night time, no traffic and we stopped to eat on the way at a famous restaurant). It was OLA cab ( a famous Uber India competitor with safe driver, i pad, WiFi all provided ) safety-wise, car was restricted with 80 km/hr max speed as per OLA's policy, so i felt much safer Reached Glades hotel ( prebooked for 5 nights by clinic rep ) at early morning, they gave me the best corner suite front facing with high back chairs that are required for sleeping after operation. It was premium room, the best this hotel offers Took shower, settled in, got a call from Shalini ( clinic's team lead ), she was very much concerned about how my journey was, was asking the right questions, she had called hotel previously also to inquire why I haven't arrived yet. Very professional lady, said take some rest, Dr. bhatti will meet me in the evening as initially we were supposed to meet 10:30 am but later she changed it to 6 pm. I was impressed with clinic's approach, flexibility and was feeling positive assuming from there ... now i am in their city, in their hands and they will take good care of my needs, will plan everything for me. This assumption turned into reality in the coming days. As soon as I checked into my room, Patient rep from England called me. I was delighted to see Shera is keeping an eye on my every movement to ensure I am safe, sound and happy with the hotel. He told me to rest assured me that Doctor will meet me the same night. I bumped into 2 patients at the hotel lobby - one south indian gentleman with his wife ( who was taking good care of him) and one from Netherlands - a tall caucasian fellow with black bandana on. Both assured me that I am in safe hands for my tomorrow's session. Talking with patients who were just done with their surgery, it gave me some more peace of mind. They only gave me positive feedback, nothing negative. One fellow did mentioned that Dr Bhatti doesn't talk much, will just answer if you have any questions but likes to move on fast as a high energy doctor. But at the same time, he said his operation was flawless, Dr Bhatti knows what he is doing and if you engage him - he might talk more with you. I insisted that even if it's a Sunday ( only one day off for clinic ), a holiday - I need to meet Dr Bhatti regardless to calm me down, give me peace of mind, discuss my Q&A otherwise I cant jump into operation day tomorrow on Monday. Dr Bhatti added me to his whats app rightafter, messaged me that he will come to hotel lobby around 7 pm and he arrived. We met at the restaurant, he told me to take off my baseball cap , showed him my condition, had a quick Q&A with him ( i had a long printout of questions lol ) , he handed over medicines that i need to take with dinner ( 5 tabs ). finally, I was relaxed after meet up F2F and enjoyed my first night, dinner and slept well. Overall, clinic delivered on their commitments and Shera also delivered on his promises for my preop journey. Full marks here. DURING OP - INSIDE OT - DAY 0 Clinic sent their driver at 7:30 am to pick me up, by 8:00 am - I was in their blood work room ( clothes changed to OT clothes, valuables handed over, met shalini first time, shoes taken off. Very organised process, well oiled machinery and the staff was all there to meet and greet me. Driver, staff, nurses, hotel staff - all courteous, attentive and caring. Some other reviewer mentioned - "In turkey, in majority of clinics you enter - you see 15 patients, 1 staff member. At Darling buds India, he saw himself as the ONLY patient and 15 staff members all to welcome him, take care of him and are dedicated to his surgery for the entire day " This was the case for me also so I was very happy as I asked to ensure if I am the only patient today, they said YES. 3 nurses came right after, two asked me if I am ok with needles as they need to take some blood samples. Took blood in 2 separate tubes as 1 for regular check up, 2nd for my PRP injection ( yes, it was a part of my package ) No time waste, then I was sent to reception area - meet and greet, then off to Dr Bhatti's office. He welcomed me again, some small chats, my Q&A again, he gave me realistic expectations, drew hairline an inch higher than my normal as I'm not in my 20s, rather hitting 40s soon which I agreed with ,he said no temple work required ( also agreed) , took some high resolution pictures from all angles. Then I was sent to next team - 2 ladies shampooed me , some antiseptic spray. Then Dr Bhatti personally trimmed my hair feeling them, their direction ( asked specifically not to cut them a month prior to surgery ) . In turkey, people see doctors for hairline session only, once done 15 minutes, NEVER AGAIN - I heard stories that are scary. Here, Dr Bhatti is telling me what he is about to do before every step. He said go inside OT. INSIDE OT - There were 6-7 nurses, all masked, couldn't see their faces, heads covered, gloves on ( stressing on this because in Turkish clinics where I was sold at one point, even most clinics posted their own OT pics on their websites where no gloves, face masks or microscope helmets during live patient's operations ) 3 girls at least had microscope helmets ON additionally with other gear. We joked a little, they welcomed me, said " Sir, dont you worry ). I asked about my blood test results if I am diabetic, high BP or any red flags are there... If yes, i am running back to canada and get SMP instead if surgery might kill me lol . They assured me i am all healthy and all HIV, Hep C, Hep B, Diabetic, High blood pressure results are negative. My heart said a big " Thank you god " One nurse put on Blood pressure jacket on my right upper arm, other inserted a small injectible tube on my left hand with tapes. 3rd nurse set up heart rate monitoring system with my first finger connected. They said these 3 components will be connected throughout the operation ( I was relieved as heart pulse, blood pressure should be monitored constantly during any surgery ) Dr. Bhatti enters with his combat gear on, helmet on lol.... explain what and how he's planning to do things on me today, next steps, to advise him if I need more anesthesia or feel any bit of pain. My surprise - Anesthesia was the scariest part for me, I was willing to pay extra 250 Euros to one Turkish clinic once for pressured gun ( needle less) . BUT, at darling buds - i later found out that they use 4 techniques - one nurse will bring a special icepack, other uses tapping on your head, 3rd controls your body/hand for heart monitoring and some accupressure technique and Dr Bhatti inserted the first injection in my head with anesthesia . I wasn't expecting that less of a discomfort, minor stingy feeling and here goes the next one, next and within 5 mins - first part of donor area was numb. Dr. said he will start using motorized punch ( i think 0.8 mm ) but to tell him if I feel anything. I felt nothing, some noise like a electric toothbrush. In between, you do feel some minor discomfort but that's a given. Bear it. It is like an endurance test for many humans Before I knew or was sleepy, half dizzy time flies by and donor harvesting was done - 2870 scalp donor grafts were taken out and 429 beard grafts after that. Breakdown below: 236 singles 2052 doubles 1011 triples Grand total: 3299 grafts equals to appox. 7500 new hair . Also, my existing couple of hundred hair if survive the shock loss, it will be almost 8000 hairs on my central part. Praying and hoping this is true when the time comes Then , relaxing time, some nice pizza, coke was served, in between water served if you feel thirsty. Lots of people joining hands inside OT, going out/in. Lots of multitasking happening as I could feel. During lunch, I was feeling a bit weak after harvesting due to the posture my body was in for the past 3 hours, it was obvious. plus that anesthetic and sedation used will add to the dizziness, weakness. A Senior Veteran visited me inside OT, i knew he was the dedicated anesthetist ONSITE that Dr Bhatti always advertised about making his clinic different than most others. This man asked me if I am okay, need anything, how is my head /body feeling. This MAN seems to know what he's doing and talking about. Seems like one of the most experienced Anesthetist, so a visit from him gave me more energy and I was fine after few bites into that veggie pizza ( that you pre- select before operation from the menu ) Then, Incision part that was relatively easy and comfortable. Dr. Bhatti performed himself all the incisions, we talked about many topics at a high level like Dr. Feller's post here, DHT, Needleless anethesia etc. Then, Nurses started implanting my invaluable grafts that were preserved in PRP + Stem cell liquid. Both had microscopes on. I felt no pain, really numb on my front scalp. The nurses seems to know what they are doing, I felt comfy to be in experienced hands. Dr. Bhatti was constantly visiting back and forth, asking if I am okay etc making sure the work is done nicely and patient is comfortable with no fatigue, dizziness, weakness or in any kind of pain. Dr. Bhatti did performed himself all those pieces that were promised - Hair trimming, Anesthesia ( all ), FUE extractions ( ALL - scalp and beard), INCISIONS ( all 3299 ) Worth mentioning - Dr Bhatti's nurses were extremely caring, when I was alone with them I felt no need to ask for Doctor. They have done major surgeries, thousands of satisfied celebrity clients but still they were treating me like I am the special, their first ever client in OT. They continuously monitored my heart rate, in between several times when I am too relaxed or half asleep, I hear a voice " Sir, please make sure not fall asleep. Please take long breaths, your breaths are going short now. Take longer ones now " Very caring every moment for those 3-4 hours during implantation, then as soon as I hear this voice, i start taking longer breaths, heart rate monitor started beeping slower and back to normal. so you kind of get used to your own heart rate pumping and are told to constantly manage 90 beats or so ( as I was told its getting less than 90 if I remember correctly), once its more than 90 - they said "you're back Sir " You're dehydrated for sure by the end, so make sure to drink water ( not too much also as one should try to avoid going to washroom often) Kudos to the nurses who implanted all my grafts, very caring, experienced. One nurse constantly changed heart rate setting to middle finger, then to the first one again to monitor the average or if one's getting loose with time, re-calibrate again. They asked me tea, biscuits. I confused them with a Yes, no, yes, no as a part of me wanted to eat , drink but another part of me wanted to get this over with as soon as possible. Last part was crown implantation, before starting Dr Bhatti came in again and inserted my PRP injection into many crown areas. Then I was made to sit on a chair, face inserted downwards, girls were giggling, joking about each other's grafts and their chosen territories on my scalp. They kept on ordering their junior nurse / subordinates in OT to bring a single, now double, to put some beard ones now, to spray saline water all over now. They acted like a doctor ( no joke ) very commanding, good leadership qualities, delegating to their junior staff to focus on particular areas ( I think it was poonam, one other I forgot her name as I specifically asked 4 times for my review lol , should've written them down) finally, by 6 pm ( 8 hours - 10 am to 6 pm inside OT) , all 3299 grafts were implanted. A long breath of relief, I was fine. Got out, next to mirror they sat me down. 2 nurses and Dr Bhatti bandaged/lubed my donor area nicely. They only day 0 night instructions were provided and only a few medicines for that particular night were given to me to be taken with dinner ( they make sure not to overwhelm you with post op care right after surgery ) . Dr Bhatti advised his driver to take me back to the hotel and next morning 9 am to pick me up again on day 1 to remove front bandages/ swap back ones. by 7 pm I was back in my room, was feeling proud of myself. I was like YAY, i am alive, healthy, got this done. I went into a state of mental Euphoria , ordered some delicious food thru room service, my neck travel pillow on, medicines with dinner, took some pics, thanked God, showed some gratitude and slept upright on the hotel chair. POST OP Another good thing about this clinic ( hard to find elsewhere) is that as long as you are staying in Chandigarh, they will keep on sending driver for pick up/drop off back to clinic, for everyday care, wash, bandage removal, bandage swap, Doctor interaction, Q &A, billing discrepancy ( if any ). One thing I was impressed with - I never paid for the procedure until after 6 pm on OT day ( most clinics and Darling buds included will ask to pay entire amount before procedure starts) , may be my day was a Monday and everything was planned to save time accordingly. But, this goes to show that clinic is not after payment only. They are concentrated on patient first, yes payment is important which we took care of later. I was quoted to pay 248,000 INR for 3500 grafts initially but after operation, I had a bill of 230,000 INR for 3299 grafts only as presented by Shalini. Clinic's post OP booklet, meds, shampoo, explanation, driver's extra care while making sure you dont bump your head with car door while getting in/out, all goodies - TOPNOTCH experience. I also purchased for 140 $ - 6 months supply of minoxidil, finas, biotin . Shera always called day/night to make sure I am fine, all my issues, doubts ( if any) are taken care of, they don't just leave you after operation. It's a constant touch with the clinic over the next few days. I met Dr Bhatti on Day 0, 1, 3 and 4. Reputed Doctors mostly charge for consultation half hour( 300 $ in Canada) for you just to be present in their cabin. Here I am sitting with Dr. Bhatti on Day 4th having a coffee, talking about DHI vs FUE vs DHT. His eyes lit up when you talk about HT, it seems this doctor lives and breathes HT only, his entire focus, study, energy level and most importantly passion oozes out of his eyes and body language clearly demonstrating that he is driven to make sure his clinic succeeds, he stays reputed or gain even more reputation. Clinic truly focuses on " Happy clients" than short term gains , they make sure you leave this experience with a smile on your face and no regrets/hard feelings even if a tiny bit, they dont waste time in resolving that matter for you in seconds. No arguments, if you're not satisfied with something - talk to clinic staff - Sonam or Shalini ( best girls, very caring) or directly with Shera or Dr Bhatti and they will make sure it's resolved. The day of my flight ( day 5th ), another driver in a 3rd car was sent to pick me up who only drives nurses bus or clinic staff. He said the 2 regular drivers are both busy but he was on time. They dont forget about your flight, who's leaving, who's coming in. Its like an army style operation. I met 2 other patients during my checkout at hotel lobby - one British and one Indian folk, the three of us had a good chat about clinic. Goes to show that this clinic is expanding over the last 10 years, have a global outreach, patients from all corners of the world you could see landing there. A special shout out to Shera - even after my return, he is in constant touch with me on whats app, guiding me moving forward, also without me asking : said that clinic will standby my results if not satisfactory after 6 months. This gave me reassuring answers to the burning questions in my mind : Why is this the clinic I chose, Why it's reputed in the first place and Why Darling buds made a name for themselves !!! I now feel that I know the answer to these Why's - Everyone in the staff, Doctor, patient rep, driver, even the coffee man will provide you with best possible customer service. My Rating - Staff/Nurses - 10/10 ( you can't ignore the importance of a great OT staff who also operates on your head) Drivers - 10/10 Shera ( patient rep) - 10/10 Dr. Bhatti - 9/10 I will give 9.5 to Doctor ONLY once/if I see some satisfactory results in the coming 6 -12 months and will officially only sign off Dr Bhatti as the chosen one if my results are good. Doctors should always be scrutinized more with strict marking initially so they continue to research, evolve, learn, adapt and improve their overall services for future patients. Rest assured, I know as a patient we have important part to play now - strict diet, all meds, exercise, no smoking, no alcohol, dermarolling, biotin, finas, minox , sleep, positive mind set, drinking water, cleaning scalp, sleep and the list goes on............................................................... You just name it and will find me doing it ..... I want to give this my best shot ( only thing no one knows as to how many grafts were damaged, bulbs, roots were crushed under forceps, not inserted properly, not extracted properly, not angled properly, singles not checked for frontal hairlines, how my 429 beard grafts will blend nicely with 2870 scalp grafts - will they or will they not ) I am not saying any of the stuff above holds true about my experience with Darling buds but as they say : " Results matter" and " Time will Tell"
  19. Never heard of this doctor, but I would look in to Feller& Bloxham, True&Dorin, Dr. Wesley and Dr. Bernstein in the New York area.
  20. no one can give you an honest opinion without photos depicting the degree of your hair loss and state of your donor - but most importantly I think everyone on this forum would advise you against going with Bosley. Don't limit yourself to NY doctors, although Feller & Bloxham are great doctors and by all means go for a consultation. Do some research on this site of other doctors' work. YOu may not be limited to FUT or strip surgery - maybe you are a good candidate for the less invasive procedure of FUE, even if you have to travel. I'm from NJ and I flew to Ottawa (less than 2 hour flight) to have surgery with Dr. Rahal because I wanted FUE and he is a world-renowned surgeon. Good luck to you.
  21. Feller and Bloxham, True&Dorin and Dr. Bernstein. I wouldn’t limit your search to New York though, spend some time on the forum looking up reviews and visit the surgeon that impresses you the most.
  22. Dude - you ARE the MAN! I'm a gonna' go on a MAJOR rant right now - so all you TL-DR 'dear readers' may exit stage left at this point. TYIA. Major cosmetic surgery that is botched should be 'shouted from the rooftops' and to be brutally frank (and yes, I am in the legal field and licensed in 3 states as well as Israel) it is horrifying to me that a foreign surgeon cannot be SUED up his ass for Compensatory {expectation & consequential}/General/Punitive as well as Aggravatory and finally Restitutionary Damages. Dr. Erdogan is a reckless unfortunate well-known MILL surgeon operating in Turkey. I stand by this written statement. Unequivocally so, in fact. So sue me, eh? Oh wait - that's what Dr. Erdogan says (not to your face) when he and his staff 'ghost' a persistent and rightly so PISSED-off U.S. patient. Shame on him. And if I am given a 'timeout' for my written statement - no matter. I'll take the charge. It's really no skin off my sack as they say in Jersey. And yes, my last surgery was in India w/Dr. Suneet Soni (4.5K FUT & 500 FUE) in March '17, previous to that surgery in Great Neck, NY w/Dr. Feller 2,243 FUT in March '04, previous to that surgery two surgeries w/Dr. Mark Pomerantz in Chicago, IL (700 and 1100 FUT 'mini and micro' grafts) in two sessions '93 & '94 and finally my 1st initial surgery w/the stupendously arrogant yet 'dim' Dr. Matt Leavitt (100 and 120 minigrafts) FUT in Detroit, MI in Dec. '90 and Jan. '91 Of course I will get more surgery - 2 to 3 FUE procedures and I will utilize 'beard' hair in the process because although I have complete coverage and NO visible thinning my hair is Asian-esque BONE straight and my hair-caliber thickness in Microns is embarrassingly low - thanks Mom & Dad. You fucked it all up when you capriciously concieved me without thinking about genetic predispositions in 1966. Flaccid and weak lack of forethought, but I digress. So, I know of where and when I speak. In fact I would say I am the most informed hair transplant consumer that I've ever known personally. I am obsessed w/hair - it is who I am. Since I get a modest amount of feedback in these forums I will post my last 2 major surgery 'before/after's and my 'current situation' in great and nauseating detail later this spring when I have more free time. SLR photos - professional lighting - wet/dry combthrough videos. Scar and donor area combthroughs and both just-washed hair (wet) - towel-dried hair, no-product dry and styled hair as well as w/a touch of DermMatch concealer. I will walk the walk because I admire everyone here that posts photos and tells their story - it takes alot for me to respect other men - this is hands-down the very best hair-restoration website on the planet. Simple as. For this I owe - a mitzvah if you will for my fellow brothers (in spirit) that suffer from this terrible progressive illness that is passed down from inferior genetic donors (our parents). In the far future hairloss will be a relic of the past that time has forgotten. Until then 'by endurance we conquer!' Peace & Degenerate Blessings...
  23. I had a bad FUT procedure done last year 1000 grafts into the front and temples of my hairline. I also know that hair transplants are permanent, so I know there is no way to get these grafts off without some semblance of scarring. The question is, how bad? I had a consult with Dr. Cooley and another and both agreed that the grafts can be removed almost scarring would be minimal But I have googled this subject pretty tiresomely and what I have found on the internet is not so optimistic. There are not too many pictures that show successful FUE graft removal surgeries. I see a lot of graft redistribution photos and went through a bunch performed by One doctor. But with my specific issue there is little on the internet as far as photos that go with successful FUE graft removal that will allow me to realistic judge for myself how I think the scarring will look. Even more troubling is the prominent hair transplant surgeons in the field that have openly spoke against removing plugs via FUE. Doctors such as Feller, Dua, Pak and Rassman have all warned on forums not to have the procedure done. With all of this information to consider I would love your thoughts on plug removal via FUE. One way or another these grafts really need to come out and if my skin is in way too critical of a condition for electrolysis and I don’t want to deal with the fallout from getting a brow lift on my head. I see no other option. But with getting a 100 or so removed from the front portion of my hairline. What am I realistically looking at scar wise? I am honestly more concerned with my skin underneath the transplants. Dr. Cooley highly and I repeat highly recommended I get A cell done along with my repair. I have some ridging and I am very worried about pinning. Do you guys recommended anything for the skin I can do to help it look as natural as possible? Is A cell my best shot? Right now the plan is Graft Removal and redistribution further back on my hairline and with proper grafts, A cell and FUE scar repair - I have a nasty strip scar in the back to fill in. Thanks for the feedback and all the best always.
  24. Dr. Wesley, Dr. Bernstein and Feller and Bloxham arew worth looking in too. Also, True and Dorin are nearby as well.
  25. Today, I wanted to do something of a "PSA" about how the crown (vertex) progresses and how this affects transplants. Had a patient come to me (from the UK) for surgery in August of 2016. At that time, he was experiencing very classic male pattern hair loss: patterned thinning in the front, a stronger (but questionable) "bridge" in the middle, and an evolving crown in the back. And the patient made a very classic request: "Doc, I know you recommend doing the front/middle, but it's the back that bothers me! Can't we do the crown?" Here's how the looked the morning of the first surgery: Luckily Spex had already done an excellent job discussing the issues with transplanting the crown with this patient, so he had a pretty good understanding of what I would say the morning of surgery. But I told him that transplanting the crown now wouldn't be the best option. The front and middle are more cosmetically significant, and your crown is likely going to progress. We don't want to utilize a lot of grafts before we know what's really going on, nor do we want to fill it now and create an "island" of transplants surrounded by thin scalp as you continue to recede back there. He agreed and we pressed forward with a 3,300 graft transplant aimed at addressing the frontal and mid-scalp. Procedure went great and the patient reported excellent growth a year later. When he got back in contact, he confirmed that the crown (and some of the mid-scalp where the thicker "bridge" was located) had continued thinning and wanted to know if we could address it now. I evaluated everything and believed that we could. Here is how he looked the morning of surgery 2 (pictures purposely highlighting where I worked): And here is a picture of his FUT scar 12 months after a 3,300 graft procedure: But here is where the real "PSA" comes in: Here is how his crown looked only 12 months after the first operation: (note, the mid-scalp continued to thin as well and what you see there is a complete loss of his native hair and only transplants -- which were carefully integrated into his native hair previously -- remain). And here is a "side-by-side" for comparison: Had I done a dense fill of the open crown area before, the patient would have utilized precious grafts to now have a dense island in the middle of thinned area around it. This would not have looked natural, nor would it have been a good use of his finite donor. What's more, you can see how "doing the front first" always results in a natural appearance from any reasonable angle, regardless of how the patient thins behind. But after a thorough review, I decided it was appropriate to now address the crown (including working into the edges where it may possibly continue to thin -- though unlikely) and reinforce some of the mid-scalp. I performed another FUT harvest and removed an additional 2,500 grafts for the crown. He's now had a total of 5,800 grafts via the FUT technique. The patient can still undergo more strip harvest and then FUE the virgin donor around it if he wants more work in the future. Here he is in the middle of the second surgery: And here he is at the completion of the second surgery: So remember: 1) The crown is an highly unstable area and needs to be evaluated and intervened upon carefully. I definitely understand that it's bothersome, but it is constantly evolving in the active stages of male pattern hair loss and "jumping into it" can be tricky and isn't always the best use of grafts. 2) The frontal region is usually the more cosmetically important one and it's usually best -- in patients with loss in both -- to address this region first. 3) Utilize the donor carefully. It's a limited resource and must be respected. Hope you enjoyed. Dr. Blake M.
