  1. 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
  2. Oh that's interesting. It used to be free when Dr. Feller was the only Dr. there. That was a while back though. I had a consultation with him about 10 years ago. I wonder if the fact that a lot of people are getting multiple consultations is causing some places to have to charge now since they may be doing many more consultations that don't result in the person having their surgery with them. Hmmm....
  3. 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
  4. While I didn't create an account on this forum over the last couple of years it was invaluable in my research process and I want to pay it forward, especially since I seem to be seeing fewer patient posts with recent dates, at least for Dr. Cooley. Thus I will try to be thorough here in describing my process. Apologies in advance for the length of the post and the variability of the quality of the photos. I know they aren't the best. I am still only a few days/weeks out and will update this with before photos and after photos from the clinic and exact graft count(s) when I get them and try not to disappear throughout the process. My Past Situation I had an ill-advised FUT procedure when I was 21 to address temple recession. I wasn't on meds, it was premature, and I went to a cheap chop shop. CLASSIC, young guy being really stupid. :sigh The procedure (unknown # of grafts) involved putting grafts on the temples and unfortunately also some around the front of my hairline. It did very little cosmetically unless you count triggering massive loss of existing hair (most of which did grow back in fairness). The only saving grace here is that we were talking about a fairly minor temple area and because of my light hair/skin contrast I've been able to get away with a forward brush hairstyle that hid really poor work. Oh and it wasn't big plugs and the scar wasn't horrendous and avoided being in any disastrous region(s) thankfully. No matter what you do STAY AWAY from Samson Hair Restoration in Los Angeles regardless of what doctor they currently have cycled in. Why now Now, 11 years later at 32 with some additional thinning and some recession the previous work was becoming harder to cover, especially when swimming or my hair was wet. Plus, I just wanted it fixed to open up different hairstyles and to get ahead of managing what I believe will be future loss. Almost a gradual "replace" strategy I guess. In terms of meds, I had been on finasteride w/ no side effects for 4 years but then went off for 5+ years (don't really know why). I went back on 6+ months ahead in prep for a procedure and plan to stick with it this time. Not on finasteride or any other shampoos etc at the moment. Picking the surgeon In terms of research this time around I did a lot more homework using this forum as the basis for creating a smaller list of doctors. Ultimately I narrowed my list and research to consults with Lindsay, Bernstein, Cooley, Bloxham, and Nadimi. I felt these were really great doctors that didn't necessarily require a flight based on my East Coast USA location (I was intrigued by Rahal, Hasson/Wong/Kronior and some of the other staple of well regarded doctors as well but with only so much time felt good with my short list). I did not consider India/Turkey etc., not because I don't believe quality results can't be achieved there, but because I didn't want to take the risk and conduct an extra level of due diligence with respect to many of the practices and I was willing to pay $ for that peace of mind. Notes on my Consults During my consult with Dr. Lindsay I felt like he just didn't think I needed a procedure yet. He cited 1200 grafts and it was all relatively cursory. So not a fit for me Dr. Bernstein was a good consult (worth the cost) where I learned a bit and I felt comfortable with him and his work, but ultimately I wasn't blown away by the results I've seen from him either on his website or on this and other forums My consult with Bloxham was really terrific and I got a great feeling from him. He was ultimately my #2 but I did not choose him mostly because he is just relatively newer with fewer posted results. And right or wrong, some of the (rare/older) negative comments about customer service/interactions from Feller put me off. I did NOT have any of this sense from Dr. Bloxham and have never met Feller but the posts are there nonetheless. I will also say, they need to upgrade their facility. Not the medical side hopefully, but the rest of the place was old and run down feeling. Dr. Nadimi was also great (via Skype) and matter of fact but I got the sense she did more FUE than FUT. Similar to Bloxham there are just fewer patient accounts out there that I could find, but based on what I've seen and this consult I was very comfortable and impressed with her Why Cooley Ultimately, I went with the only doctor I didn't meet/ have a convo with directly in Dr. Cooley. I appreciated the consult with Lollie and a deeper understanding of their procedures and liked what I heard about use of Acell, how he preserved grafts out of body, his hands on approach, the tenure of his techs, and so on. But most importantly Cooley's track record of consistent results and patient experiences tipped me over (including one detailed repair write-up by a Blonde haired individual, of which there are relatively few results). I also literally did not find a single negative review (of outcomes) for Cooley in all my research and I valued that apparent consistency. Procedure - Why FUT I knew I wanted FUT as I (a) already had a scar I felt could be improved, (b) wanted to maximize future grafts and survivability, and (c) wanted to minimize recovery time. I am lucky enough to have a lot of Donor and existing hair that can be used to hide a procedure. Pre-Procedure and Day of All things posted about Cooley experiences were true for me. I followed pre-op instructions for scalp laxity. I think this helped as I could feel the sides definitely loosen up, and while the back still felt tight Cooley said it was great and helped with suturing (+ sutures out at 2 weeks vs. 3 weeks). The hotel they set you up in is excellent, easy, convenient and they already know why you are there and what you need. Shuttle drivers, check-in staff, and others there were helpful and discrete and the breakfast and gym is open early enough for day of eating and a last workout. On the day of the operation we met at 7am, had a calm and not rushed discussion where any other questions I had were answered, and re-affirmed my choice of 2500 FUT + PRP/Acell. In terms of hairline we were on the same page to opt for a conservative/mature hairline though Cooley jumped straight to the need for work on the temples which he said he does not always do. This process of agreeing on this was FAST as a lot of it was bridging existing hair and the past work plus a little bit of pulling temples out/down. In terms of PRP, Cooley was candid that for me he didn't know if PRP would make much of a difference as he didn't see a ton of minituraization but (a) I'm paranoid and think there is more than there is/I have very fine hair already, and (b) I am hopeful that it will help somewhat with avoiding shock loss or speeding up recovery. I know there's no real scientific evidence to back that up, but I was willing to spend the $ on the chance it helps. I will say that to make sure you get what you need before surgery begins you should 100% come prepared with your questions. For example in my consult with Bloxham he indicated that my past FUT scar had a small area branching into the danger zone for donor and advised forking the scar near my ear. I really did NOT want to do this, so asked Cooley about it. He decided to implant 10-15 hairs in the end of the old scar as part of the procedure and end the new scar in a safer location. I do not think we would have ultimately done this if I had not asked. H/T to Bloxham for noticing it in a really thorough, caring consult. I also asked about a few grafts poorly placed in the front of my forehead below the 7CM mark we agreed to for the new hairline. He said if I was OK With it that he would remove those with electrolysis which I agreed to and am relieved about as they were definitely not natural looking. Overall, it was a good conversation. I, like most others, felt comfortable and cared for by Dr. Cooley and all of his other wonderful team members. I do think the clinic could get better about having all their pre and post op documentation organized and sent in a big PDF but that's super minor overall and has nothing to do with the in-person interactions I had. One other area that I felt could be improved is in discussing recovery times. The clinic (not Cooley himself) were fairly aggressive in terms of discussing post HT recovery periods and timeline (no redness 5 days, not visible procedure at 8 days etc). It's not that they are totally off, it's just that they are definitely giving the aggressive, "best-case" scenario in my opinion and shaded this as an absolute vs. discussing the potential ranges of recovery times based on patient characteristics. Still thus far in my case it has proven to not be too far off the mark so far (devil's always in the details though isn't it). Procedure itself From the Cooley consult we moved into the procedure. Numbing/valium etc was painless. Unlike others I don't think I really went fully under for the ENTIRE duration of the procedure, I even heard a nice little "ripping" type sound on removal, but no pain whatsoever. By 11:30 the donor was removed, there were 5-6 technicians on the microscopes, I had had PRP and he had done the few electrolysis removals needed. I stopped for lunch and then we carried on. Cooley performed all of the donor incisions, with Brandi hovering nearby, and was present for probably 90% of the graft placement. I know for sure he was doing all the immediate hairline grafts. I believe he left for a little over an hour in the middle of the procedure (basically the length of a movie), but I'm not 100% on whether he popped his head in a few times during that time or not. While he was not actively working on my head Brandi was performing graft placement and I believe Amy also worked on placing grafts. Cooley returned and was essentially there the rest of the day long after many of the other techs had left post dissecting the grafts (easily 4-5+ more hours). It was clear he reviewed and had ample time to change, correct, or ensure any grafts not placed with him in the room were to his liking. Like others have mentioned it was clear throughout the day that this was a well-oiled machine, with team members that had worked together for years (decades even). Everyone was friendly and taking a dedicated and personalized approach to the operation, and I couldn't imagine going somewhere with a doctor doing multiple ops in a day. Throughout the process Brandi was constantly checking Cooley and making sure anything "controversial" about his approach was discussed (a few graft placements here and there, reminders about how many grafts were left etc). All of this was reassuring. I am sure the reverse also happened. Ultimately for the 2,500 graft procedure Cooley was able to get over 3,000 grafts (I will get exact counts later) and we did not finish the day until a bit after 7pm, meaning I was there for nearly 12 hours. This extra time and attention, plus the grafts that were not something I had to pay extra for, all speak to his long-running record of caring about his patients and working tirelessly to get results. I am obviously grateful for this. Post Op - Healing, Pain, and Experience (Week 1) Donor got painful at the end of the day during the operation so I was numbed up again before I went home. I was obviously a bit red and beat up but it wasn't as bad as I was expecting and they had already done a pretty good job cleaning a lot of the blood off. Plus I was wearing Saran wrap + a hat so able to avoid any weird looks. On night 1 I took some Tylenol but nothing stronger--which is good because I didn't get the prescriptions until day-of for stronger meds. Cooley's post-op care uses an ATP spray + saran wrap to increase moisture and prevent any graft damage and antibiotic ointment on the donor scar. You basically spray every hour you are awake and wake up and spray every 2 hours for the first 2 nights along with taking some preventative Prednisone for swelling. I followed the instructions religiously here and I think it really helped calm redness and speed healing. On night 2 I was falling back asleep pretty quickly so it didn't feel too onerous to keep getting up. For sure it kept the itchiness to a real minimum in the first 6 days. I went back the next morning for a post-op clean and got the all good from Dr. Cooley. During this cleaning Amy took time to answer any questions I had about the next week of care and was patient with what I am sure are the same questions everyone asks. In terms of the documentation they gave me to follow, I actually think it could have been a bit more detailed. It wasn't that it was bad, but I felt like an "FAQ" or just more exhaustive detail would have helped. For example, I asked about caffeine / alcohol / ibuprofen which were not listed (Cooley says moderate amounts of both are fine), and it doesn't give you much about how to sleep (when can you sleep sidweays on the grafts) and so on. To give you a sense of how smooth this was, I drove almost 7 hours home the very next day, which was completely fine and painless. Overall I found the post-op regimen easy to follow, the spray and saran wrap seemingly very effective even if I did probably use it too quickly/aggressively to try to get it through the native hair as I ran out a day or two earlier than I think the clinic expects. One curious thing with post-op care from the clinic is that it seems that Cooley's overall instructions,are more aggressive than many other docs (like the timeline to shampoo (next day) and return to regular shampooing (7 days) . I'm sure this is because Cooley is confident in the healing/quality of the grafts and incisions etc and has refined his approach over time but it does make me just a little nervous when looking at the instructions online from so many other places that are much more conservative. But he's my doc and I'm in his hands and so far so good. On night 3 I slept poorly but not really due to pain, I think I just missed exercise. On night 4 and 5 I had more pain when putting the back of my head on pillows (I slept elevated with an inflatable travel pillow partially inflated these nights to help with any potential swelling) and I did take a valium one night and the other pain killer + tylenol combo prescribed drug the fifth night. It almost felt like the donor was a little more stretched these two nights with whatever position I could find that didnt have too much pressure. If this continues I'll call the office to make sure it's normal. Some posters here have mentioned this as the return of nerve sensation but I'm not sure. Otherwise I have had some very very minor swelling which made me break out some ice on my forehead and eye area a couple of times and take ibuprofen periodically as well. It was never uncomfortable or especially noticeable to anyone else however. Last point, I am using the Hair Shake protein. I don't really think it'll do much but I've used protein powder a lot anyway so I don't mind and if it helps at all with speed of growth or minimization of shock-loss, then it's worth a couple months of it for me. I am not planning on using it long term and no one at the Cooley office actually mentioned it directly despite having it stocked there and having it listed as an optional part of the post-op procedure. Post Op Appearance - First Week The scar in the back is perhaps slightly visible with wet hair (first 3-4 days) but completely hidden with normal dry hair. As mentioned it wasn't giving me much trouble the first 3-4 days, although of course everything felt really "tight" there. At night or with pressure on it day 5-6 it actually has felt a bit worse and I've taken some of the prescribed meds just to make sure I get decent enough sleep. We will see of course on final healing and appearance, it is early days. Redness in the recipient has subsided each day, and now at day 6 is not bad at all. It's probably worse in the pictures than in real life. I am fairly pale skinned but had a deep tan going which some say can help. There is definitely scabbing, it is super mild/light and looks like when I return to regular shampooing and rub the grafts a bit it will easily flake off and be gone within the 7-10 day timeframe that they gave. In any case, it's really mild and not that noticeable. I have used their given shampoo and started leaving the conditioner in a bit longer which I think has helped. I have a couple spots of dried blood left but overall it's pretty clean and I haven't noticed anything remotely like grafts falling out. Really, not even many/any hairs yet. The kicker here for me is that I 100% had to hide from the world during this time because I was (a) spraying every hour and (b) couldn't style my existing hair for fear of touching/disloding existing grafts. So you could see the grafts taking hold and small stubbly hair, plus weird caked native hair that was a bit long already awkwardly plastered to my scalp. So all in all, a real lovely mess. Now had I managed this aggressively with a blow dryer on cool or if I was more comfortable touching and styling my scalp in this period I am sure I could have made it look better but I didn't want to take any risks. On Day 6 I did a bit of finger styling and with my existing hair I can make it look decent (see 1 of the pictures). Decent is not invisible however. The temples are harder to disguise and any close inspection things are definitely still visible so I feel I am very much still in hat land. To be fair, my wife says it's pretty hard to tell unless you get up close and personal already. We will see if my extended family at Day 11 notices anything. Summary of first week So far the difference from my first procedure has been remarkable. Basically instead of an immediate "oh shit what have I done" I felt more like a "I'm already looking better than I expected 12 hours later. and everything is going exactly like they said" It's nice to already feel like I made the right choice. The recovery seems to be text book according to their expectations, but I most certainly don't want to be out and about without a hat yet as it would be noticeable. The things I am worried about are (a) appearance at 10 days and masking it, (b) avoiding shock-loss as no work was done in the middle of the frontal third, and (c) continued management of the donor scar pain. All the rest is of course the standard, hurry up and wait, concerns about linear scar etc that we all have but if I can avoid shock loss I feel comfortable looking like I did for 6+ more months. I hope this is helpful and of course any feedback on the pics and actual quality of the work is welcome as well. Again, apologies on the photo quality I will get better ones from clinic later. I will try to post periodically as I hate the posts where people disappear but I also intend to try to live my life and not obsess over the progress over the next few months.
  5. I don’t know much about the medical field as I am not a doctor but Dr Lindsey is a plastic surgeon with a FACS board certification that trained under dr feller. Dr. Diep is a graduate from some Caribbean medical school that trained under dr rassman at nu hair clinic. Does that give any insight? You tell me btw r u Indian? U said you were consulting with eugenix correct? I’d be curious to see what they recommend
  6. If you live in Canada why not consider Dr. Rahal, H&W, Feller and Bloxham aren’t that far either. Given that you will likely progress to a norwood 6 you may want to maximize grafts by going strip first. The price of strip is comparable to FUE.
  7. Nice work Dr. Bloxham. Looks very good. Wow....Dr. Feller may be $10 per graft? He produces very nice results but It still amazes me the disparity of costs per graft from excellent surgeons on this network. I’m used to $4-5 per graft with every graft extracted and inserted by the surgeon. I’m not trying to be critical because I’m a free-market capitalist. So...good luck to those surgeons charging quite a bit per graft. Glad we have a wide range of surgeons to pick from on this site.
  8. Do you use the "stick and place" technique when performing fue cases? Also do you charge the same as Dr. Feller for FUE, which is if I recall correctly something like 10 dollars per graft. Also, what is the best way to contact you? I admire your work!
  9. On March 18, 2019 I had a 2000+ graft FUT procedure with Dr. Bloxham in Great Neck Long Island NY. Even though I'm only 4.5 months out, I'm already very pleased with the results. And I'm aware this isn't even the final result yet. So I wanted to share my before/after pics for those who may be considering getting a procedure in the future with the hopes my story/results might help. Quick back story: I had two small procedures in the early 2000s as my hairline was beginning to recede. The hair transplant company that did the procedures is now defunct. The results were sub-par but, if styled a certain way, I thought I could sort of get away with not looking so bald (sort of a comb over effect. But I probably wasn't fooling anyone, haha). Over the years, my hairline continued to recede pretty far back. So in 2016 I decided to have another procedure. I'd prefer not to name the doctor publicly as, although there was some improvement, the results weren't so great and I don't want to smear anyone's name or business. But if you're considering getting a hair transplant and would like to know, feel free to PM me. Or if you have questions in general or would like to talk regarding my HT experience, reach out to me at jamesnyt10@gmail.com. So at that point I had three procedures and still had sparsely transplanted hairs. I just assumed that maybe my physiology just didn’t allow most of the grafts to survive. But in 2019 I begrudgingly decided to give it one more chance with a new doctor. I researched several surgeons and decided to go with Dr. Bloxham at Feller & Bloxham. Not only was I impressed from seeing all the results and info on their YouTube channel, but in addition, his customer service from the very beginning was truly outstanding. So we had a consultation (actually a few) and he recommended a roughly 2000 graft FUT procedure. As I mentioned, I had it done on March 18, I'm now 4.5 month out and the results have been exactly what I had hoped. I included before and after pics and will post updates every so often. But even though I'm only 4.5 month out, I'm already very satisfied with the results. For the first time in my adult life, I don't appear to be balding, thinning, or have sparsely transplanted hairs. My story is a testament to the fact that results can truly vary depending on the surgeon. I included before/after pics.
  10. I have been corresponding with dr bloxham by email. I was surprised with how fast I got responses from him. Great guy and i am very appreciative that he took the time to reply. Through email, we agreed on 1500 grafts using mfue I believe it is called. So instead of having a huge fut strip scar, I'd have 4 to 6 small 2 cm donor areas in different spots in my head. I am just curious to hear from others who have chosen dr. Bloxham before I book a appt. I started losing my hair since my mid 20s. Started using minoxidil at 26 and finasteride at 32. I am 41 now with pretty much only hairline issues. Just wanted to make this post and hear from others who have had this procedure done or who have used dr. Bloxham. He is my top choice to do this now that feller seems to no longer do it. He did a ht on a guy I met who had it done 10 years ago and it turned out very well. Anyways..hope to hear responses so I can book the appt. I dont think I ever had to make a harder decision in my life. It is a lot if money and scars can prevent a shaved head if I am one of the unlucky ones who doesnt have a result.
  11. 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
  12. Hi Phil, I always try to make the time -- though I will admit that I am falling behind on answering private messages, and I do apologize to anyone waiting for a reply! I truly like being a clinic that can offer patients both FUT and FUE. And not just in name only. While I think I have made my reputation with FUT and I am a very vocal proponent of it, I perform FUE every single week. We have an OR specifically for FUE; we have a staff cross-trained specifically for FUE (who have been assisting in the FUE process since 2002); and I feel very blessed to have learned manual FUE from my partner, Dr. Feller, who was one of the first three to perform the procedure in North America (the others being Dr. C in Atlanta and Dr. Jones in Canada) and someone who has multiple patients and publications in early FUE development. So, long story short, I think we do have the ability to recommend and offer patients both. I do not think there is a strict, binary decision as to when a patient is a candidate for FUT versus FUE. From a strict mathematical and scientific standpoint, I absolutely do believe there are instances where one should be utilized to the exclusion of another. And in these situations, it will absolutely be my recommendation to use one versus the other. In the real world, however, patients have different long-term goals, different lifestyles, and sometimes what may be the best technique on paper is not the best one in practice. So I do my best to come up with plans and approaches using both methods when patients request it or ask for one above the other. When they simply ask for my opinion, I try to always be objective as described above. Here are some generalizations about when I think you should do one above the other or who is a good candidate for FUT over FUE: Start with FUT: -Young patients with uncertain futures and all but guaranteed progression -People with advanced hair loss -People with limited donor (as long as the limitation is not the density; in patients with very low densities, I actually usually recommend conservative FUE) -Patients who need critical hairline work and cannot risk yield (print models, film actors, etc) - Patients who are likely to want to do more surgeries up the road -Patients with hair types that I do not believe will do well with FUE: very fine, light hair (fragile follicles), certain ethnic groups, etc -Patients with a lot of laxity or very "stretchy" or "mushy" skin -- which I believe will either deform or distort and just not let us accurately score the grafts -Patients who want to do the most possible in a single sitting Start with FUE: -Patients with obviously stable loss only requiring a small amount -Patients who must keep the sides very short (certain military guys; certain actors with crazy film/studio contracts; etc); however, you cannot undersell the scarring to these individuals because it is not a scar-less procedure -Patients with very tight scalps or very low density where the "scarring to graft number" ratio is just not good enough with FUT (IE: taking a 30+cm strip and only getting out 1,200 grafts because the scalp is so tight and the strip was thin or the density was so low) - Patients happy with their prior strip scar who just need a little more work -Patients with prior strips who cannot undergo any more -Patients requiring less than 1,500 grafts (which I now still split up into two days as I like doing everything manual and staying very involved with FUE procedures) - Patients who are not 100% ready to commit to transplants but want to "test the waters" a bit first (again, we need to be careful not to oversell anything to these patients) Surely I am forgetting a few here, and this list is not all inclusive; however, good generalizations. In patients who are not concerned with the scar or want to get as much as possible (the majority of patients) or just want to go with what I recommend, FUT is typically a great starting point. I also offer a "modified" approach to FUT where I break up the strip into smaller 2cm pieces, which are somewhat staggered and broken up. It allows patients to go a little shorter on the sides and the scarring, if it is seen, looks more like trauma than a telltale surgical scar, so it gives people a little more wiggle room up the road. I have probably shared a few of these cases on here before, and I will share more in the future.
  13. So, I had a procedure w/Dr. Feller in 2004 (my 1st large strip procedure of 2,250 grafts). Any really good doctor should leave a very small FUT scar on a virgin or near virgin scalp. It's only 2.5K grafts. It's when you are going for the 5K or 7.5K total of grafts where it gets tricky ('cause of less laxity). Regardless, very nice 1st surgery. Patient has very good hair characteristics and great donor and fairly limited hair loss overall compared to NW5 or NW6. Still, if this was to be his 1st and last transplant he should have gone FUE because then he can shave down much lower if he desires in the back. I don't know his hairloss history or if he is going to do his crown or vertex though?
  14. LOS ANGELES, California (Reuters) -- Think you've seen it all when it comes to cosmetic surgery? Look more closely. Eyelash transplant surgery wants to become the new must-have procedure for women -- and the occasional man -- convinced that beauty is not so much in the eye of the beholder as in front of the eye itself. Using procedures pioneered by the hair loss industry for balding men, surgeons are using "plug and sew" techniques to give women long, sweeping lashes once achieved only by glued on extensions and thick lashings of mascara. And just like human hair -- for that is the origin -- these lashes just keep on growing. "Longer, thicker lashes are a ubiquitous sign of beauty. Eyelash transplantation does for the eyes what breast augmentation does for the figure," said Dr Alan Bauman, a leading proponent of eyelash transplants. "This is a brand new procedure for the general public (and) it is going to explode," Bauman told Reuters during what was billed as the world's first live eyelash surgery workshop for about 40 surgeons from around the world. Under the procedure, a small incision is made at the back of the scalp to remove 30 or 40 hair follicles which are carefully sewn one by one onto the patient's eyelids. Only light sedation and local anesthetics are used and the cost is around $3,000 an eye. The technique was first confined to patients who had suffered burns or congenital malformations of the eye. But word spread and about 80 percent are now done for cosmetic reasons. For many women, eyelash surgery is simply an extra item on the vast nip-tuck menu that has lost its old taboos. More than 10 million cosmetic procedures -- from tummy tucks to botox -- were performed in the United States in 2005, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. The figure represents a 38 percent increase over the year 2000. Erica Lynn, 27, a Florida model with long auburn hair, breast implants and a nose job, had eyelash transplants three years ago because she was fed up with wearing extensions on her sandy-colored lashes. "When I found out about it, I just had to have it done. Everyone I mention it to wants it. I think eyelashes are awesome. You can never have enough of them," Lynn said. Bauman, who practices in Florida, does about three or four a month. Dr. Sara Wasserbauer, a Northern California hair restoration surgeon, says she has been inundated by requests. "I have been getting a ton of eyelash inquiries ... If I had $10 for every consultation, I'd be a rich woman." The surgery is not for everyone. The transplanted eyelashes grow just like head hair and need to be trimmed regularly and sometimes curled. Very curly head hair makes for eyelashes with too much kink.
  15. he's been a part of this community as far back as I can remember, maybe when he was in medical school and certainly before he agreed to join forces with Dr. Feller - Dr. Feller, who I highly respect, called him a hair "nerd", which is to say the man knows his stuff -
  16. 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.

  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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?

  21. 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.

  22. 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
  23. 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.
  24. 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"
  25. 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.
