  1. Hello everyone, I’m Sergio from Spain. My Business is Photography. They specifically requested the logo to be added to the photos. Also, what I wrote below is entirely my own thoughts. I just wanted to share my photos about the process. It’s been 18 months. I had for a density operation. I had 4500 grafts hair transplantation. Dr. I had heard about Erkam CAYMAZ, but I was undecided whether to get it done or not. There are many clinics in Istanbul. It was operated by Dr. Caymaz on a Spanish friend. It was one of the biggest factors. Anyway, one of the most important factors was Mr. Enes , whom I talked about beforehand that he had 1-2 operations a day. I didn’t believe it, but it was true. They don’t say that 1-2 Vip Operation is in vain. You really feel important. Everyone just cares about you. They and Dr. Caymaz doing his job well, the rest is up to you. By the way, Dr. Caymaz opened my hair channels and surprised me that he was using 2 hands. Good surgeons, though, operate with both hands. Technique name of Sapphire FUE. In addition, post-operative follow-up is really important. They follow very nicely regularly. I wondered and asked if they had photographed them, and I will share it. The reason I emphasized this is that many clinics forget you after performing your operation and do not even answer your questions. Dr.Erkam CAYMAZ’s clinic is very successful in that regard. Other things are like other clinics. Don’t research too much. I am really happy about the results. My process was a really important one. I had a shock hair loss process. During this time, they constantly followed what I had to do. This is my last photos. This is my last photos.
  2. Ok. I don´t know if they told you that they offered me FREE touch-up procedure. Because it is true, that after 18 months since surgery they offered me touch-up procedure with 2500 number of grafts for 6.250,- eur (2,5 eur per graft). I didn´t decline anything. I was in contact with Asmed till 12th March 2020, when their patient coordinator wrote me their last message, that Dr. Erdogan will analyze my case again and she will write me his comment and result. Today is 20th June 2020 and she (and also nobody else) wrote me, or offered me anything, therefore I coulnd´t decline anything...
  3. I arrived to Istanbul on 15th of January 2017 before midnight, after previous online consultation, booking an appointment and paying deposit. I choosed Asmed and Dr. Erdogan for theses reasons: 1. In that time Asmed almost hadn´t bad results on HT forums, 2. on their website they wrote, that they have interpreter from my native language (it wasn´t true), 3. I had good flight conection to Istanbul. After arrival the driver of Asmed clinic wait for me and my patient coordinator Sevinc called me to say welcome in Istanbul and to give me informations about my stay. On the second day, 16th of January 2017, in the afternoon I had an appoitment in Asmed clinic, where I filled the questionary and met Dr. Erdogan. He spoke with me for a while and draw me the hairline. I told him my expectations. Than they made pictures of me and my hair condition and cut my hair for 2 mm. Dr. Erdogan check my donor and said that I need 4500 grafts for hairline and vertex. Previous number of grafts after online consultation was 4000 – 4200 grafts. After that I payed rest of ammount (tottaly 11.250,- Eur for HT). Than Dr. Erdogan came and draw new hairline, but I didn't agree with it. He said that this hairline perfect suits me and asked the staff if he is right. Of course that nobody said that it is not true. Maybe it was my fault but I didn't know that this is final hairline for surgery and I expected that before surgery he draw me new hairline. I found out it next day, but it couldn't be changed (hairline is much worse as he drawed). I had my HT surgery on 17th and 18th of January 2017. Dr. Erdogan made just incisions and the rest (hair harvesting and implantation) were made by stuff. One of them told me that my grafts are perfect quality and my result will be great. After finishing my HT I look to the mirror and I saw that my hairline is wrong and unnaturall. Dr. Erdogan saw that I was not satisfied with my hairline and told that it is due the swelling and when hair start growing it will be fine. On 19th of January 2017 Dr. Erdogan checked the result and I came home. I started to use finasteride 1mg daily from the surgery. I sent my pictures to Asmed after one month, after 3 months and after 6 months from the surgery and they always wrote me back that everything is ok. After 11 months I saw that my transplanted area is still lack and result is bad, therefor I wrote to the Asmed and sent them pictures. They (Sevinc) wrote me that it is normal and everybody has different hair growth and I have to wait to the end of 18 month from HT and if my transplanted area will be still lack I have to write them and they offer me a solution. After 18 months my transplanted area was still lack and there were no improvement, therefor I wrote to Asmed another mail with pictures and asked them why my result is so weak and where the mistake happened. I was very suprised when they asked me to fill new questionary and to send them another pictures. My surprise was much bigger when they wrote me that I need another HT with 2500 grafts, which will be cost 6.250,- Euros. I have been in Istanbul again in August 2018 and I wrote to Asmed and asked them to arrange an apointment with Dr. Erdogan. They wrote me back that Dr. Erdogan is busy due the moving of clinic and he has no time to meet me. After time I published few pictures of my result on this forum with asking for opinion and I was contacted from Asmed for informations who am I and when I had HT in their clinic. I send them answears and they asked me for pictures of current condition of my hair, which I sent them, but I didn't get response. After 3 weeks I wrote them that I didn't get any response and they wrote me that they sent me response on my email adress but I didn't get it. After few days they wrote me that Dr. Erdogan checked my pictures and my result is normal and it was caused due stopped using finasteride (I have using Propecia for 18 months from the surgery). I wrote them that it can't be true, because my original hair are fine and my transplanted area are lack. Also the condition of my hair was same after 11 and after 18 months when I took Propecia, and now when I don't take Propecia. If it will be true, than my transplanted area will be fine and original hair will be lack. I wrote it them and they asked me for another set of pictures which Dr. Erdogan will check again and tell me the best solution. Therefor I sent them another set of pictures with current condition of my hair, but they didn't response for a month. I wrote them that I didn't get response and they wrote me that they sent me response on my email adress but I didn't get it. Another day they wrote me that hair behind the frontline started shedding when I stopped finasteride. Therefore it does not support the frontal part and this is why it looks as it does. I sent them once again set of my pictures and wrote them that I was on finasteride from my surgery to the end of 18 month since surgery and asked them, if bad result of HT in 11 month since surgery and in 17 and 18 month since surgery, where the same weak result was visible is caused by discontinuation of using finasteride after 18 months and asked them where is area of shaded hair after discontinuation of finasteride, which they mentioned. They wrote me back on 13th February 2020, that they will have a meeting with Dr. Erdogan to my case next day (14th February) and they let me know. Because I didn´t get any response I wrote them on 6th March what is happened. They wrote me back, that they had meeting, but Dr. Erdogan had to go to Mexico for the FUE workshop and they didn´t write the report and they think that I need another HT with 2500 grafts (the didn´t mentioned if free HT). I wrote them back that I still don´t know what is the reason of my terrible result of HT. They wrote me back that no using of finasteride is one of the reason and the exact reason is possible to say after analysis in live. On 8th March 2020 Melvin Moderator contacted me and he asked me for informations about my HT and than he wrote to Asmed. On 12th of March Asmed contacted me that Dr. Erdogan will analyze my photos once again and they let me know. Today is 11th April and nothing has change. Nobody from Asmed contacted me for another month. After 3 years and 4 months since my HT I still don´t know what is the reason of my terrible HT result. But I know that the reason is not discontinuation of using finasteride after 18 months since surgery, because the result in 11 month since surgery, 17 and 18 month since surgery and also now is the same. I don´t know if I should wait for some response from Asmed, but I don´t believe for something serious from them because I see that they try to delegate resposibility to my person and dicontinuation of finasteride after 18 months since surgery. And this is NOT the reason! I understood that they didn't want to help me to fix my weak result, but the purpose why they contacted me was to stop me to write negative things about Asmed clinic. From my HT I checked a lot of web sites and forums with this problematic and I saw a lot of results of another surgeons and clinic (in many cases "no name" surgeons and clinics) on theses forums and also on their web sites, where I saw a lot of similar hair loss cases like mine which are great and were solved with less numbers of grafts and I understood that I that I made a big mistake, when I decided to go to Asmed. Density of my frontal area is lack, shape of my hairline is unnatural with gap on one side and total result of my HT is weak and bad. One thing is the result. But another thing is attitude of clinic to their result. And the attitude of Asmed to my result is unethical and unprofessional. I usually do good decisions in my life and just a few of my decisions I consider as bad. But decision about going to Asmed and Dr. Erdogan for hair transplant I consider the worst in my life...
  4. Hello, Now it's finally my turn to give back to this community by sharing my story, experience and progress of my hair transplant surgery which I did with Dr. Koray Erdogan at ASMED Clinic in Istanbul 9-10th Jan 2020. Background I'm a 29 year old guy from Sweden and I started experiencing hair loss when I was around 22. I started to lose hair very slowly, it was barely noticeable but as baldness is in my family I kind of knew it would eventually turn into NW 5/6 and wanted to do something about it early. So I booked a consultation with New Hair Clinic which was the top clinic in Sweden at the time, but they suggested me to wait a few years before undergoing surgery. I didn't really feel my situation was that critical so I followed their advice and didn't do anything about it, but I did however get useful knowledge about hair loss and about finasteride, minoxidil and the lasercap even if I didn't start using any medications immediately. I was a bit skeptical to finasteride due to potential side effects but started using minoxidil 5% at age 24 and after a few months I could already see both regrowth and thicker hair, it felt really nice and all my anxiety about hair loss dropped, situation was handled. I've read about people that tried minoxidil and didn't see any results (or at least not quick enough) so they became skeptical and eventually stopped it. Well it's true that some don't see as much improvements as others, but for me it really worked and I got great results. I learnt (the hard way, I'll come to that) that the important thing is to be very patient and consistent with it, in the beginning I was using it mornings and evenings every day and held on to it during the shedding phase and that was probably key for me. Unfortunately at age 26 I got a bit overconfident about my hair and got sloppier with the daily minoxidil routine. Mainly it was due to that I had summer vacation and I was travelling a lot so I started skipping days, but then I had also got used to my hair being so full for such a long time and somehow thought that I might have stabilized it and didn't need minoxidil anymore. Which was false obviously... Within a month or so I immediately started seeing my hair fall off again and this time it was getting even thinner and on the crown too. At this time I began researching about hair transplant clinics again and did an online and phone consultation with Dr. Saifi at European Hair Transplant in Poland who I had read some good posts about in a Swedish forum. He quoted me 2200 grafts for the frontal and part of the mid-section area. He had a waiting list of 6 months, but I ended up not booking as I still didn't feel ready and hadn't got the push to actually do it. I started with minoxidil again and was able to recover a lot of hair. This time I applied it only in the evenings as it was messier to apply it in the mornings and I wanted to style my hair without it. I did however apply almost double the dose (maximum daily dose) when applied in the evening. I didn't know if it would still be helpful but I thought to try it out and it actually helped keeping it stable so I continued like that for another 2 years. Then last year at age 28 I underwent a tough period that got me to seriously consider a hair transplant. I stopped using minoxidil as I didn't prioritize it due to personal circumstances and a lot of change happening in my life (including new job & country). I was well aware that I would probably lose hair again but I accepted it and thought that if it would get really bad I'd just shave bald. It took a month or so and I panicked when I saw the hair loss and realized I actually didn't want to lose my hair, note sure what I was thinking before. So I started with minoxidil again and the shedding phase this time was horrible. My hair never fully recovered again to how it was before the shedding and that's what pushed me into actually going for a hair transplant. After having done research online and reading a lot on this forum and seeing good results I decided to contact Dr. Koray Erdogan for a consultation where he quoted me 5000 grafts for the front, mid and crown areas + recommended finasteride to stop further hair loss. I didn't take finasteride but continued with minoxidil (until 2.5 weeks prior to the surgery), and then it took me a year of consideration until I eventually booked the surgery with ASMED now in Jan 2020. The consultation I had my dad with me who is a NW6 and the first thing Dr. Koray did was to go and inspect his hair to see where I'm headed. The bad news was that my dad's hair had become thinner also on the sides and back, and he said that if I would to follow the same pattern then my donor area would not be as strong as it might seem right now. Although I was not happy to hear that I was glad that he noticed this as I will now be careful to not over-harvest my donor in case of future surgeries. He then also inspected my hair and did a calculation of my donor capacity which was estimated to 8300 grafts. He said that I had to start with finasteride as I didn't have enough donor capacity to cover my full head if I were to loose all existing hair in the future (estimated to 8700 grafts). Was not very happy to hear this either, as I had already during the online consultation expressed that I preferred not to take finasteride but that I was fine with continuing with minoxidil as I had seen good results from it. They had then said that they respected this, so I ended up having a small argument with the doctor as he tried convincing me to take it, and that if I didn't he would rather not want to do the crown area right now but use the 5000 grafts on the front and mid-section and then do the crown next time. I didn't like this option as I wanted to prioritize the front and crown as I already have some hair in the mid-section which I hope to keep for a couple of years with the use of minoxidil, and instead consider a second surgery in the future if I would need it. Anyway, as the doctor convinced me that the risk of side effects is very little and that taking it would help against shock loss and improve growth during the first year, I decided to try it out and he supplied me with Proscar for 4-5 months (1.25 mg daily). He drew a hair line which was a bit more conservative than what I had aimed for, but given that I had limited donor capacity and after seeing the pre-consultation photos that were taken by the clinic I realized that my hair loss was much worse than I had perceived it and accepted his suggestion. The pre-surgery care, clinic & surgery days As many other members have already described these parts I will not go into much detail. But what I can say is that everything from the contact with my patient coordinator Andreea, to the pickup from the airport, to the greeting at the clinic and the surgery itself was very professional. I stayed at the clinic for 5 nights and the service was exceptional. All of the staff were very nice and the food was great. Before going I was hesitant whether I should stay at the clinic or book a room at Radisson Blu hotel, but now afterwards I don't regret it at all. It was very comfortable not having to leave the facility, having breakfast, lunch and dinner just outside your room and get to meet other patients that were also staying there in the spare time. They had live music in the evenings, big screen TV, pool table and the basement had a high quality gym and basketball area. What I also appreciated was that for patients staying over the weekend, ASMED arrange a free city tour of Istanbul with a private guide where we got to visit the famous bazaar, the blue mosque and the city center. Hair situation and medication - Androgenic alopecia: NW5/6 - Finasteride: Proscar (1.25 mg) started with the procedure. - 5% minoxidil (topical): Been using it daily for 5 years (Stopped it 2.5 weeks before the surgery but will start using Minoxidil foam in a few weeks) - Daily hair-loss shampoo: Nisim NewHair Biofactors Shampoo (Normal to dry) Graft distribution - Total donor capacity: 8300 - Total transplanted grafts: 5078 - Hair thickness: 61 microns - Ratio: 2.03 hair/graft - Single: 1190 - Double: 2658 - Triple: 1103 - Quadruple: 125 - Quintuple: 2 I think I've covered most of it now and will keep uploading photos of the progress here. Feel free to ask me anything if you have any questions. /KM90
  5. Uk hair transplant clinics = big time fraud I have been to see the so-called consultant from UK hair transplant clinics; I did see a chap named Paul Hill. I got a bed feeling from the start, as it was obvious he was no more than a pushy salesman with no interested in me or what was best for me, all the alarm bells rang straight away. The consultation was a hard sell from start to finish with the so called consultant having minimal knowledge of hair transplants and no interest in discussing anything except for how urgent it was for me to get this done a.s.a.p. to take advantage of the great limited time offers they have, I should preferably pay the deposit there and then or I might loos out on the deal, it reminded me of a door to door salesman offering double glazing! This guy has not had a hair transplant, his hair looks pretty poor and his only semi-medical training seems to be from his teeth whitening business. I walked away from the consultation thinking how desperate people that book with them must be, its obviously nothing else than someone trying to make a quick buck selling something rather then someone that has experience or knows what he is talking about. After the consultation I received an email with pretty great looking before and after shots, I almost starting thinking, hold on now, maybe I wasn’t fair to them, maybe I just had the consultant on a bad day and the clinic is actually pretty good, these results where after all pretty fantastic. After looking at the photos for s little while I realised that I had seen some of these photos before somewhere else. All the fantastic before and after shots they have are stolen from the following coalition hair transplant doctors (none of them works I the UK or has heard of the UK hair clinic): Dr William Parsley - Hair Restoration Surgeons, Hair Transplant, Surgical Hair Restoration, Hair Transplant Cost, Hair Loss Treatments, Hair Loss Doctors | Parsley-Waldman Hair Center, Louisville, Lexington, Nashville, Knoxville, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Chicago, St. Lo Dr. Michael Meshkin - Dr. Michael Meshkin*Hair Transplant Surgeon in*Newport Beach,*California Dr Robert H True - Hair Clinic New York, New Jersey, Boston Dr Bradley Limmer - Bradley Limmer, MD*Hair Transplant Surgeon in*San Antonio,*Texas Dr Sharon Keene - Sharon Keene, MD*Hair Transplant Surgeon in*Tucson,*Arizona I have added a screenshot here with the photo from ukhairtransplantclinics.co.uk on the left and on the right you will have the original photos from Dr Robert H. True (Hair Clinic New York, New Jersey, Boston) I am sure that him the rest of the doctors will see this and take action against this scam clinic. Here is a bit more about the consultation: It was all about me loosing the change of a good price if I didn’t act quickly, here are a few phrases from the email: “Because there are now only a few surgery dates available for the promotion Please call me on 0800 043 0993 if you have any further questions or would like to arrange your treatment.” “In order to qualify for the above promotional savings the following would usually be necessary: 1) Make a surgery booking within 7 days of this letter “ At the consultation you indicated that it would not be possible for you to be treated in the promotional period, I have now spoken to our manager, who has agreed to hold the price until the above date, as long as you pay a deposit, in the next 7 days. Believe me in person its worse than this! I wanted to share this with the rest of you to make sure you don’t waste your time going to these consultations and even more importantly don’t get ripped off by paying anything to this company.
  6. Dr. Lorenzo used to be considered the best, until Dr. Cuoto, he’s fantastic, but I’ve heard, not sure if it’s true, that he’s not as involved in surgery anymore. Again, this could be just hearsay, so I don’t know for sure.
  7. 3582 GRAFTS I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE MY EXPERIENCE AND RESULTS OF MY OWN HAIR TRANSPLANTATION JOURNEY, TO HELP ANY OF YOU WHO WOULD LIKE TO GAIN SOME KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT IS INVOLVED , AS YOU MAY BE CONSIDERING GOING ON THE SAME JOURNEY . ABOUT MYSELF : IM FROM IRELAND IN MY 50 s CLASSIFIED NORWOOD 6. I HAVE BEEN LOSING MY HAIR GRADUALLY FOR 15 YEARS, HOWEVER IT BECAME VERY NOTICABLE TO ME 6 YEARS AGO. I DONT TAKE ANY MEDICATION FOR HAIR LOSS. RESEARCH : I HAVE BEEN RESEARCHING FOR THE LAST 6 YEARS TO GAIN AS MUCH UNDERSTANDING AND KNOWLEDGE AS POSSIBLE ON HAIR TRANSPLANTATION. I HAVE BEEN ON THIS FORUM FOR OVER 5 YEARS AND I HAVE GAINED LOTS OF INFORMATION FROM ITS MEMBERS ESPECIALLY THOSE MEMBERS THAT HAVE HAD A HAIR TRANSPLANTATION THEMSELVES . I HAVE CHECKED OUT YOU TUBE TO SEE DIFFERENT CLINICS AND DOCTORS AND PATIENT RESULTS. I VISITED CLINICS HERE IN IRELAND, CONTACTED CLINICS IN AMERICA AND CANADA , AND ALSO EUROPE. I SPOKE TO PAST PATIENTS AND FUTURE PATIENTS , I ALSO TRAVELLED OVER TO LONDON FROM IRELAND A FEW TIMES TO MEET SOME TOP DOCTORS . WHY EUGENIX : DURING MY RESEARCH I SAW PATIENT RESULTS AND TESTIMONIALS ON YOU TUBE ABOUT EUGENIX WHICH WERE REALLY IMPRESSIVE. I ALSO SAW MANY VIDEOS OF THE 2 FOUNDING DOCTORS DR.PRADEEP SETHI AND DR. ARIKA BANSAL. DR. PRADEEP AND DR.ARIKA EXPLAINED MANY DIFFERENT AREAS ON THE SUBJECT OF HAIR TRANSPLANTATION WHICH WAS REALLY INFORMATIVE. SOME TIME LATER DR.PRADEEP AND DR.ARIKA WERE RECOMMENDED ON THIS FORUM WHERE THEIR PATIENTS SHOWED SOME OUTSTANDING RESULTS, NOT JUST FROM SCALP DONER BUT ALSO FROM BEARD DONER ALSO. OTHER PATIENTS THAT HAVE GONE TO EUGENIX HAD POSTED IMPRESSIVE RESULTS ALSO. SO ALL OF THIS WAS GREAT PROOF THAT THESE 2 DOCTORS ARE HIGHLY SKILLED AND FURTHERMORE HAVE INVENTED THE DHT TECHNIQUE , DIRECT HAIR TRANSPLANTATION , AS THEIR IS SIMULTANEOUSLY EXTRACTIONS AND IMPLANTATION OF THE GRAFTS WHICH GREATLY REDUCEDS THE OUT OF BODY TIME MY GRAFTS WOULD BE SUBJECTED TO , MAYBE AT TIMES GRAFTS MIGHT BE OUT OF THE BODY FOR 20 MINUTES OR SO ALSO WHICH IS NOT VERY LONG.THE DOCTORS ALSO WROTE AN EXCELLENT BOOK ..STEP BY STEP HAIR TRANSPLANTATION. ALONG WITH THIS EUGENIX HAVE BUILT SOME STATE OF THE ART CLINICS WITH THE VERY BEST OF EQUIPMENT INCLUDING EXCEPTIONALLY HIGH MAGNIFICATION LENSES WHICH ARE REALLY IMPORTANT. ALL OF THE ABOVE ALONG WITH 2 DOCTORS WITH THE HIGHEST OF CREDENTIALS IN THIS FIELD, ALONG WITH MARVELOUS PATIENT RESULTS PROMPED ME TO REALLY CONSIDER DR.PRADEEP AND DR.ARIKA @ EUGENIX AND AT THE TIME BOTH DOCTORS WERE PLANNING TO COME TO THE UK FOR A CONFERENCE ON HAIR RESTORATION , SO I ARRANGED TO GO TO LONDON TO MEET THEM BOTH . I FOUND DR.PRADEEP AND DR.ARIKA TO BE REALLY NICE GENUINE PEOPLE WHO HAD A GREAT PASSION FOR WHAT THEY DONE , AND THEY ARE ONLY FOCUSSED ON HAIR TRANSPLANTATION , I BELIEVE THEY ARE TRUE LEADERS IN THIS FIELD. WITH ALL OF THE ABOVE IN MIND AND LOTS MORE I BELIEVE AND PUT MY TRUST IN DR. PRADEEP SETHI AND DR.ARIKA BANSAL AND SUPPORTING DOCTORS AND TEAM @Eugenix Hair Science AS THIS IS MY BEST CHANCE OF A SUCCESSFUL HAIR TRANSPLANTATION. JOURNEY TO INDIA : I CAUGHT A FLIGHT FROM IRELAND TO LONDON ( INSTEAD OF GOING DIRECT FROM IRELAND )AND THEN FLY WITH AIR INDIA FROM HEATHROW DIRECT TO DELHI . WHEN I LANDED AT THE AIRPORT EUGENIX REPRESENTATIVE ABHINAY AND THE DRIVER JALDHAR WERE THERE TO GREET ME AND TAKE ME TO EUGENIX CLINIC. ABHINAY ASKS ME ABOUT HAVING DINNER WHICH I APPRECIATE BUT I HAD PLENTY OF FOOD ON THE FLIGHT. DR.PRADEEP RINGS TO WELCOME ME TO INDIA WHICH WAS A NICE TOUCH ALSO. NELSON RINGS TO ENSURE ALL IS OK AND SLSO ASKS ME ABOUT DINNER WHICH WAS NICE. I ARRIVE AT EUGENIX CLINIC AROUND 12 MIDNIGHT AND A REALLY NICE ROOM IS WAITING FOR ME WITH COFFEE AND BISCUITS PROVIDED, VEEY NICE SITTING AREA IN THE BEDROOM WITH A LARGE ENSUITE . I HAVE A GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP. D DAY: I GET UP AND HAVE A SHOWER AND BRECKFAST IS DELIVERED TO THE ROOM BY THE VERY NICE STAFF WHO ENSURE IF THERE IS ANYTHING YOU NEED IT IS NOT A PROBLEM. I MEET DR.ARIKA AND DR.PRADEEP DOWNSTAIRS WHO INTRODUCE ME TO DR. SHISHIR. DR. PRADEEP THEN INTRODUCES ME TO ALL THE TEAM WHO IS INVOLVED IN MY SURGERY AND EXPLAINS WHAT EACH MEMBER OF THE TEAM DOES , AND HOW LONG THEY WORK WITH EUGENIX, ALL A VERY LONG TIME , SOME 10 YEARS. I THEN GO THROUGH SOME HEALTH DOCUMENTATION WITH DR.SHISHIR , MOSTLY A QUESTIONNAIRE ABOUT MY OWN HEALTH . BLOOD PRESSURE IS TAKEN. I HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH DR.PRADEEP AND DR.ARIKA ABOUT MY HT REGARDING DONER CAPACITY AND COVERAGE . BLOOD SAMPLES ARE TAKEN ALSO TO BE USED FOR PRP DURING SURGERY. TIME TO CHANGE MY CLOTHES INTO SOMETHING MORE SUITABLE FOR THE PROCEDURE. THEN ITS INTO THE PHOTOGRAPHY ROOM WHERE ALL ANGLES OF MY HEAD ARE PHOTOGRAPHED AND HAIR IS COMED THIS WAY AND THAT WAY BY DR. PRADEEP , LOOKING AND CHECKING THE WAY MY HAIR FALLS AND DIRECTION . NEXT ITS THE HAIRLINE DESIGN WHERE DR.PRADEEP MAKES SUGGESTIONS AND DRAWS THE LINE , THEN WE TWEEK IT A LITTLE BIT . NEXT ITS TIME FOR A FREE HAIRCUT . AROUND THIS TIME IM GIVIN SOME MEDICATION IN THE FORM AS A ORAL SEDATIVE ,ORAL PAIN KILLER AND ORAL ANTIBIOTIC AND PROBIOTIC. THEN IT IS INTO THE THEATRE ( OF DREAMS ) WHERE ALL THE TEAM HAS EVERYTHING READY , INCLUDING A FINE BIG TV AND MUSIC PLAYING. THE SURGERY ROOM IS REALLY CLEAN, AND ITS ONLY THE TEAM AND MYSELF ALLOWED TO BE IN THERE TO PREVENT ANY RISK OF CONTAMINATION. DR SHISHIR EXPLAINS THAT HE IS GOING TO GIVE ME THE ANAESTHETIC . I CAN FEEL THIS VIBRATION SENSATION ON MY HEAD AND THE ANAESTHESIA BEING GIVEN TO MY SCALP AT THE SAME TIME. ITS NOT VERY PAINFUL AS THE VIBRATION SENSATION CLEVERLY TRICKS THE BRAIN INTO NOT THINKING OR FEELING THE PINCHES OF THE NEEDLES. DR.PRADEEP MAKES A LITTLE MORE THAN 3000 SLITS ON MY RECIPENT AT VARIOUS DIRECTIONS AND WHICH I DONT FEEL PAINFUL WHATSOEVER. DR.ARIKA STARTS THE EXTRACTIONS OF MY DONER ON THE SIDE OF MY HEAD , I DONT FEEL PAIN AND IM COMFORTABLE. ALL THE TECHNICANS ARE WORKING LIKE CLOCKWORK AND EVERYBODY KNOWS THEIR JOB. FROM TIME TO TIME I HEAR THE COUNT OF 100 GRAFTS EXTRACTED AND WRITTEN ON THE BOARD . THE MUSIC IS ON IN THE BACKGROUND AND IM COMFORTABLE, AND AS THE MORNING PROGRESSES I HEAR ..100 .....100 AND SO ON. SINGLE GRAFTS ARE PLACED ONLY ON THE HAIRLINE. GRAFTS ARE PLACED SIMULTANEOUSLY TO ENSURE OUT OF BODY TIME IS REDUCED AND WHERE IT DOSENT HAPPEN GRAFTS ARE OUT OF BODY FOR THE MINIMUM TIME POSSIBLE . LUNCH BREAK AND SOME REALLY NICE FOOD AND COFFEE PROVIDED IN A NICE ROOM JUST OFF THE SURGERY ROOM. BACK ON THE TABLE AGAIN AND MORE EXTRACTIONS WITH A MOTORISED PUNCH OF O.9 MM BY DR.ARIKA. WHEN WE FINISHED SURGERY FOR THE DAY 1960 GRAFTS FROM THE SCALP WERE EXTRACTED AND IMPLANTED INTO THE FRONT RECIPENT AREA. I WAS GIVEN MORE MEDICATION AS A PRECAUTION IN THE FORM OF ORAL ANTIBIOTICS AND PAIN KILLER AND PROBIOTIC TO BE TAKEN WITH MEALS IN THE EVENING AND BRECKFAST NEXT MORNING. SPRAY SALINE EVERY 2 HOURS ON THE RECIPENT , WHEN YOU GO TO BED YOU DONT HAVE TO DO IT. IM FEELING GOOD THAT DAY 1 IS OUT OF THE WAY AND HAVE A SHOWER , BUT NO WATER ON THE HEAD OF COURSE. DR. PRADEEP VERY KINDLY TAKES ANOTHER PATIENT AND MYSELF OUT TO DINNER FOR THE EVENING TO A REALLY NICE RESTAURANT. A LOOSE CAP OR SIMILAR IS WORN WHEN OUTDOORS TO PREVENT THE RISK OF INFECTION. I ARRIVE BACK AT THE CLINIC , HAVE A GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP, EVEN THOUGH INSTRUCTED TO SLEEP ON MY BACK SO TO NOT DAMAGE THE NEWLY IMPLANTED GRAFTS ON THE FRONT. DAY 2 : HAVE BRECKFAST DELIVERED TO THE ROOM WHICH CONSISTED OF SCRAMBLED EGG AND TOAST AND COFFEE. ARRIVED DOWNSTAIRS AND MET THE DOCTORS AND TECHNICIANS. I HAD A DISCUSSION WITH DR.PRADEEP AND DR.ARIKA AND WE DECIDED TO PLAN FOR SCALP AND BEARD GRAFTS. THE BEARD GRAFTS WOULD BE EXTRACTED AND IMPLANTED INTO MY MID SCALP ALONG WITH MIXING THE BEARD GRAFTS WITH SCALP GRAFTS IN THE AREA. THIS WOULD HELP TO GIVE MORE DENSITY AS BEARD GRAFTS ARE GOOD FOR DENSITY, ALSO I WOULD BE HOLDING ONTO MORE OF MY SCALP DONER GRAFTS WHEN REQUIRED FOR THE CROWN WHICH I PLAN TO DO ON ANOTHER VISIT. BACK ON THE TABLE AND DR. SHISHIR GIVES THE ANAESTHETIC AND DR.ARIKA CARRIES OUT THE EXTRACTIONS OF MY SCALP GRAFTS . TV IS PLAYING WITH MUSIC AND ALL IS GOOD. NO PAIN , NOW AND AGAIN I DID FEEL A PINCH HERE AND THERE AND THE DOCTOR WILL STRAIGHT AWAY GIVE YOU MORE ANAESTHETIC . LUNCH BREAK. LOVELY LUNCH PROVIDED AGAIN TODAY, ARRANGED BY NELSON WHO ASKED ME EARLIER WHAT I WANTED. YOU CAN HAVE A CHOICE OF ANYTHING YOU WISH , WHICH I HAD A SELECTION OF A LOT OF FOOD, I COULDN'T FINISH. AFTER LUNCH IT WAS TIME TO DO THE BEARD GRAFTS . DR.ARIKA MADE SOME MORE SLITS TOWARDS THE BACK TO ACCOMADATE MORE SCALP AND BEARD GRAFTS WHICH AND THIS POINT WE KNEW WOULD BE MORE THAN 3000 SLITS THAT DR PRADEEP HAD DONE YESTERDAY. ANAESTHETIC WAS GIVEN UNDER THE CHIN BY DR.SHISHIR . FELT A LITTLE PINCH BUT NOTHING OUT OF THE WAY. EXTRACTIONS WE CARRIED OUT BY DR. ARIKA USING A 0.7MM MOTORISED PUNCH. ALL WENT VERY WELL. AT THE END OF TODAY : SCALP DONER 926 GRAFTS . BEARD GRAFTS 696 . = 1622 GRAFTS TODAY + 1960 GRAFTS YESTERDAY GRAND TOTAL = 3582 GRAFTS. DR. PRADEEP LOOKS OVER THINGS TO ENSURE ALL IS OK, AS HE DID THROUGHOUT THE PREVIOUS DAY ALSO. DR. ARIKA AND DR.SHISHIR AND ALL THE TECHNICANS HAS VAST EXPERIENCE AND REALLY WORKED GREAT AS A WHOLE TEAM SO ALL IS GOOD . IM TAKEN INTO THE PHOTOGRAPHY ROOM FOR MORE PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN BY DR. PRADEEP WITH AN ASSISTANT . IM VERY HAPPY THAT ALL IS OVER. I WAS GIVEN MEDICATION TO TAKE WITH DINNER AND AFTER BRECKFAST ON THE MORNING. DR. PRADEEP VERY GENEROUSLY GIVES HIS TIME AND TAKES NE OUT TO DINNER TO A RESTAURANT FOR A DELICIOUS MEAL WHICH IM STILL THINKING ABOUT, AND WILL VISIT AGAIN WHEN IM BACK TO DO MY CROWN. TAKE THE MEDICATION ,I HAVE A GREAT NIGHTS SLEEP. DAY 3 : BRECKFAST DELIVERED TO THE ROOM AGAIN. TAKE THE MEDICATION RECOMMENDED. I GO DOWNSTAIRS AND I MEET DR.ARIKA AND DR.SHISHIR AND DR.PRADEEP AND ENSURE ALL IS OK. ONE OF THE TECHNICANS PUTS BEATALINE SCRUB AND OINTMENT ON MY DONER AS PART OF THE DAILY REGIMENT FOR THE NEXT 7 DAYS. MEDICATION FOR 7 DAYS: 1 ANTIBIOTIC 3 TIMES DAILY , 1 PAIN KILLER 3 TIMES DAILY . 1 PROBIOTIC . BEATALINE SCRUB ON THE DONER IN THE MORNING. ANTISEPTIC OINTMENT TWICE DAILY. SPRAY SALINE SPRAY EVERY 2 HOURS. MASSAGE THE FOREHEAD REGULARY TO PREVENT SWELLING . THERE IS ONE OTHER TABLET TO TAKE DAILY HOWEVER I CANT REMEMBER WHAT IT IS THIS MOMENT IN TIME. I WAS GIVEN SALINE SPRAY AND A BACK UP OF A SMALL BOTTLE OF SPRAYTO TAKE ON THE PLANE , WITH A LETTER FROM EUGENIX EXPLAINING THAT I HAD A HAIR TRANSPLANTATION AND WHY I NEEDED IT. THERE WAS NO ISSUE AT ANY AIRPORT. DR.PRADEEP SHOWS ME AROUND MORE OF THE CLINIC DOWN STAIRS WHEREVRECEPTION AND OFFICES AND BATHROOMS ARE AND ONE HAS TO BE IMPRESSED HOW CLEAN AN MODERN THE CLINIC IS. ITS TIME TO GO TO THE AIRPORT FOR HOME , I SAY GOODBYE TO EVERYONE AND WILL BE BACK AGAIN. ABHINAY ACCOMPANIES THE DRIVER JALDHAR AND WE HAVE A GREAT CHAT FOR OUR 25 MINUTE OR SO TRIP TO THE AIRPORT. I CATCH A FLIGHT FROM DELHI TO LONDON . AFTERCARE BY EUGENIX . WHEN I ARRIVED IN LONDON, AND GOT TO MY HOTEL DR. PRADEEP RINGS ME TO ASK HOW WAS EVERTHING WHICH WAS A REALLY NICE TOUCH. ALL IS WELL. HE REMINDS ME TO MASSAGE MY FOREHEAD TO HELP PREVENT SWELLING AND TO CONTINUE SPRAYING SALINE ON MY RECIPENT. EVERY DAY DR.PRADEEP OR A MEMBER OF STAFF HAS BEEN IN TOUCH THROUGH WHATTS APP VIDEO CALL OR MESSAGES TO ENSURE ALL IS OK . I HAVE TAKEN PICTURES OF MY SCALP AND SENT THEM FOR DR.PRADEEP TO LOOK AT. I MUST ADMIT THE AFTERCARE IS EXCELLENT AS DR.PRADEEP AND EUGENIX REALLY CARES ABOUT YOUR WELLBEING . THEY SEND VIDEOS OF HEAD WASH AFTER 7 DAYS AND WHAT TO EXPECT LEADING UP TO THIS TIME , BUT ALL IS VERY STRAIGHTFORWARD , IM FEELING GOOD WITH NO PAIN WHATSOEVER. MY EXPERIENCE WITH DR.PRADEEP AND DR .ARIKA , ALSO DR.SHISHIR AND ALL THE TEAM OF TECHNICIANS , ABHINAY AND NELSON AND ALL THE STAFF WHO PLAYED A ROLE BEFORE MY ARRIVAL, DURING, FOR BREAKFAST AND LUNCH AND COFFEES AND DINNER AND ALL THE TEAM WHO ALL SHOWED EXVEPTIONAL WARMTH , FRIENDLINESS AND CARE WITH AMAZING HOSPITALITY WHICH I WILL NEVER FORGET AND WILL BE FOREVER GRATEFUL..THANK YOU SINCERELY. THANKS TO YOU TO HRN AND ITS LEADERS , WHO ARE DOING A MARVELOUS JOB AND ARE VERY DEDICATED TO MAKING THIS FORUM A GREAT BENIFIT TO EVERYBODY . THIS IS THE BEST FORUM IN THE WORLD . ITS MEMBERS ALSO PLAY A GREAT ROLE SO WITHOUT YOU I WOULDN'T BE HERE , SO I THANK YOU VERY MUCH. .............ALL THE BEST......... .................PADDY.................
  8. Hi everyone, I’ve been a long time reader of this site while I’ve been on my own hairloss journey, and similar to many other people, I’ve decided to share my story and details of my procedure here to help anyone else who may be planning a similar path and would like to see my experience. The background I’m now 33, and I initially realised I was thinning around 10 years ago. My older brother thinned around a similar time, my Grandad was bald though my Dad (in his 60's) still has thin hair coverage. Initially it was just on the crown of my head before it thinned on my temples and I tried a number of solutions before realising I needed to take Finasteride and to look into Regaine / Rogaine products. I joined the hair restoration programme at Boots here in the UK, and paid the equivalent of £1 a day for Propecia. I’m very fortunate in that I don’t think I have had any side effects at all! I tried Regaine, but after a year I really didn’t notice any difference so I stopped it. About two years ago, when I moved to Barcelona, I started taking a generic form of Finasteride which is available over the counter in Spain. It’s in 5mg pills which I cut into four segments and I take one a day, at a cost of about 10 Euros for about 4 months’ worth (far more cost effective…). I also began shaving my head short (not skinhead, but shortly cropped) – and I had a micropigmentation procedure (basically a tattoo on my head) that certainly helps my head look a darker shade, but didn’t really solve the hairloss issue. While I feel happy that the finasteride has slowed down the hair loss and the pigmentation procedure helped disguise my situation, I’ve never been happy with the crown / corners of my hair and so I’ve worn either Toppik or Mane Hair Thickening Spray (dark brown) for a while which I feel covers up my hair loss really well. However, as soon as I lean against a white wall or sleep in a bed that doesn’t have dark bedsheets, I leave behind a black mess and I always knew I’d go down the hair transplant route one day. Plus I was recently with a dude who ran his hand through my hair then saw the black mess on his hand and was like ‘what’s this?’. Let’s just say I’d prefer not to deal with that kind of embarrassing situation again. Deciding on the hair transplant An ex of mine told me he’d gone to Este Grande in Istanbul for his transplant but it seemed a little too cheap to be true. He’s only just had his procedure and I think it looks great, but it’s too soon to tell and I didn’t want to choose price over quality reviews. Another ex had gone with DHI Global in Greece (I seem to have dated a lot of people with hair loss issues huh?), though I’d read some reviews of DHI that didn’t make me feel confident. I used these forums and found out about Dr. Erkan Demirsoy / Armamed and took some time looking through his work and reading through forum posts from people who’d chosen him, and I was sold. As I don’t need to create a new hairline (just lots of focus on the crown and temples) then I feel confident that for his price, it would be the best for me. He’s quoted me the standard 3500 – 4000 hairs, for 1.25 Euro a graft. I booked, and fortunately he had space in about 6 weeks’ time from when I booked. Today I'm flying from London (where I currently live) into Istanbul and my procedure is tomorrow on April 17th. I fly back to the UK on the 19th where I’ll spend a week with my family recovering and stuffing my swollen face with Easter Eggs. I’ve included some pictures here which show my hair before the MSP procedure and after the MSP procedure, and my current situation where I’ve grown my hair a bit which will help Dr D see the whole hair picture, which isn’t so easy to see due to the MSP procedure I had. You may notice my hairline isn’t all that straight (ironically) but that doesn’t really bother me – I’m happy with where my hairline is and would only want the temples filled in. I usually use Mane HT spray as I think it provides a really good cover up solution and some of you reading this may find it’s a better, temporary solution while you consider the transplant path. Final words I’m really looking forward to the procedure and will do everything I can to get the best yield. I’m a non-drinker or smoker, and I'll do my best to follow all the professional advice I can to get a good result. I play sport a lot – mainly cycling, lots of rowing, weightlifting and I walk everywhere so I’ll be keen to get back into that afterwards. My biggest fear in all this is being 6’5” (195cm) and the fact I hit my head everywhere I go….the metro…doorframes…lampshades…low hanging branches. Finally, something I’ve learnt from what I’ve read is to manage my expectations. I’m not expecting that I’ll come out of this (after a year) with a full head of hair. I just want MORE hair in the places that are thinning, and to not feel like I’m 53 when I’m 33 and to not leave a dark brown trail mark in white areas. All future posts will be shorter but I wanted to give you the background to my journey. The following post will show the pictures on surgery day and please feel free to ask me anything or comment as I’d love to share my experience with you all.
  9. Melvin, I honestly feel that this thread has become a breeding ground for "free for all....bash Dr. Bhatti" . Questions are being raised about Dr. Bhatti's competence as an HT Surgeon and even his membership on this forum here. Recently, this forum was even accused of corruption. When I asked for proof, nothing....silence! Talk is so cheap. Accusations are easy to throw around. A few "not so good HT results" are being used and abused to put pressure on this highly reputed forum to act against an HT Surgeon, who has been a highly reputed Surgeon for the past 28 years! Keep in mind the fact that many of film stars from Bollywood and the Pollywood (Punjab film industry) make Dr. Bhatti their first choice for HT. These are folks for whom cost is not an issue......the end result are. Food for thought! ------------------------------------- watterot, we hear your concerns loud and clear. Here is what I am a bit confused about. As per Dr. Bhatti, you are in constant contact with him via email and WhatsApp. You have agreed to come back to the Clinic after the lockdown is over in India (after June 1st) for a follow up visit. Is that not the case? If yes, then I would humbly request you to not make a final judgement on whether or not Dr. Bhatti is willing to back you up and take care of your HT aspirations. I agree with you that there is a spot that didn't seem to get any grafts planted. I am not a doctor and won't try to justify anything. From a layman (who also had 4 HT procedures done) point of view, maybe a better plan would have been to just focus on the hairline and the mid-scalp area and leave the crown for a future time (if and when you chose to do that). ------------------------------ JayLDD, you have said, "I don't say this lightly, but I am 100% sure that if I trained for less than a month I could produce equivalent results". Really? Well, I wish it was so easy to become a doctor and a surgeon. So, going with that logic, if you train for 2 months, then you might be able to do a heart surgery or a brain surgery. Right? You are talking "lightly" about a Surgeon with 28 years of plastic surgery experience and thousands of successful cases. A few 'not to good results' and 'anyone' can do a "better" job than him! Let's ALL become Surgeons.....takes just 1 MONTH!!! -------------------------------- Badresults....quoting you, "Also, when you tell the patient rep, that you would lodge a report for criminal case, they can even suggest you its not a good idea, because in India it is known that everyone can get away by paying money to the authorities"..... YOU KNOW THAT THAT IS NOT TRUE. So, unfortunate that you decided to twist my words. After speaking with you over the phone for over an hour, this is what you got from that conversation? Why the untruth? Did I not repeatedly tell you that you should do what you think is good and feasible for you. You said that you would like to file a police case and I said that you should absolutely do what you like. In passing, I shared my opinion about the legal system in India (IN GENERAL). Now you make it sound as if I was trying to discourage you from doing whatever you would like to do. So, for the record, PLEASE GO AHEAD AND DO WHAT YOU THINK IS GOOD FOR YOU AND FEASIBLE FOR YOU. PLEASE. WE LIVE IN A FREE WORLD. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO WHAT YOU THINK IS GOOD FOR YOU. ----------------------------------------- Yake, you said, "Bhatti needs to improve his work as he is neither offering refund nor giving free repairs". With all due respect, I have to disagree. We offered a full "redo" (not just repair) HT to Badresults. He decided to decline that offer (I respect this opinion and reasons for doing that). We were not able to offer a refund (as would be the case with 99% of reputed HT Clinics, worldwide). So, the assumption that we are not willing to backup our Patients is not accurate. All the best, California
  10. Lol u post (1) example of a comb-over smh not surprising. Howbout this..... u post (10) examples of Dr. Bhatti performing 5000+ grafts successfully. (10) should be easy since he's performed thousands im told. Erdogan posts them monthly! In the meantime I've gone just back (9) pages for Bhatti and randomly picked (5) examples of a typical Bhatti HT's. These are examples of Dr. Bhatti and his modern day "Plugs" AND I posted (5) examples from a truly qualified surgeon being Dr. Erdogan where the grafts are played together to give the patient the density he's looking for! And btw I only went back (2) pages for Dr. Erdogan's examples and most of them were 5000+ grafts. Bhatti doesn't perform large graft operations cause he doesn't have the skill to do so and he knows if he placed his grafts that far apart to achieve 5000 grafts he would run of out scalp! The difference in skill is NIGHT and DAY!!!! Hi GNX1, I hate to hijack Sunnybadhair's thread. But you leave me no room not to respond. As expected, you make wrong and ridiculous accusations and when you get called out on it, you conveniently "side step" and choose not to respond. Let me remind you one more time what you said: 1. Accused this forum of corruption by saying that forum members that criticize Dr. Bhatti, get banned from this forum. I asked you for one name and you didn't give any. Why am I not surprised?!!! 2. "FEW" moderators of this forum had their HT done with Dr. Bhatti (and hence the presumed bias towards Dr. Bhatti) Don't worry.....I don't expect you to back up your false accusations. What is not true is not true. You can try to play a Goebbels here but that won't work. Now, let me response to the rest of your "facts/beliefs/assumptions/misconceptions": You said, " "I see the excuses about thin hair and miniaturizing scalp and the need for all these drugs its a bunch a BS! " And he doesn't do 5000 grafts procedures because he would run out of sclap" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drTFdNXX-Vc&list=PL369T6qyYsuHhqymaMLTT6OMyUS_5pJv4&index=10&t=4s Anyone who knows HT would understand why Dr. Bhatti does not allow his clients to take Finasteride before the procedure. It is simply since he wishes the patient to be drug free after the mandatory 6 months are over. We all know an average scalp does not not allow more than 3000-3500 scalp grafts in one pass. We keep seeing 5000 to 6000+ grafts on this forum, in fact it has become a trend. Either grafts have become follicles down the line the permanent zone has been extended. But I doubt these will survive once the patient is off medications. BHT is another ballgame altogether. I am just speaking of DHT blockers and their affect on scalp donor that is miniaturised. You may also like to see the complete playlist here. Not even in one video does Dr Bhatti sell hair transplant or advises medication against the patients' interest. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL369T6qyYsuHhqymaMLTT6OMyUS_5pJv4 Comparisons are odious and we do not compare ourselves with Erdogan. His is a big name in the hair transplant industry. Dr Bhatti would be friends with him, I am sure. I challenge you to show me a clinic on this forum or any other where a " One Patient, One Doctor, One Center" clinic produces results like we do. 1. Dr does does one case a day. It is not possible to do more due to his laborious modified DHI technique (Anagen Q+). 2. Dr does all the harvesting himself. 3. Dr Bhatti believes in saving grafts for future use since balding is an ever evolving process. His results have always ensured greater coverage with lesser grafts. In the right person, he has never shied away from using more grafts. You cannot turn this against him! You can get so much information about Dr Bhatti's patients from this forum besides the "5 pages that you were able to find" But show me any clinic in the world that has got greater results with such few grafts as Dr Bhatti. The comparison with any clinic is such a contrast that it is not worth discussing. In fact it is a no brainer- Additionally watch these videos for less grafts greater coverage keeping the patients long term interests in mind and personal profit at bay. See for yourself if these are "comb overs" See these cases below and then show me another One Patient- One Doctor- One Center Clinic that uses so few grafts to produce the results we do. It should not miss your learned self that this is against all known principles of profit.

Some unhappy clients will always crop up. That is the nature of the HT industry. A 100% Patient satisfaction is just not possible. But for the last 20 years, we have done the right thing and stood by our Patients. We want to make sure that we do everything possible to help them achieve their HT goals. There might be exceptions but those exceptions don't make the rule. Since we do just one case a day, even not posting on this forum ever would passively get us those many clients! This is the reason we have not posted regularly since long. You could call it complacency. It is not a good thing for brand development and we have taken note. We must start being more regular than before. What does he mean by low cost? For India USD 1.4 that Dr Bhatti charges goes a long way for him and he is happy. Increasingly patients are being treated with more and more grafts each passing year. I wonder how the philosophy changed in the last 5 years. It has got to be due to commerce. A clinic that does an honest job gets blackmailed in many ways by posts like yours. (Show me 10 good results of anyone on this forum where the harvesting was done by the doctor. )- we can ask someone to post this for us. Opposition to Dr Bhatti's technique and philosophy will continue in this tremendously competitive industry. We will continue to hold on to our ideals like wwe have before and continue to care for the patients entrusting their emotions to us. Again, you came out with guns blazing, accusing HRN of corruption and coercion before launching a full on attack on Dr. Bhatti's skills. I do not have the time of a back and forth with you but I cannot let you make false statements about our Clinic that you chose not to back up. Same goes for your accusations against this esteemed forum. I have nothing but respect for the honesty, integrity and sincere Patient advocacy of this forum. Have a good day, California
  11. Hello community. First of all, I tip my hat (exposing my scalp:P) to you to salute respect towards the fight. I'm a 28 year old physician, And I have androgenic alopecia. This thread will document my hair transplant journey with Dr. Ramachandran at Apollo Cosmetic, Chennai, India Procedure: FUT, 2700 grafts Prologue: The relationship I have shared with my hair is not so different from most of you guys. When I was 17, I saw my temples recede. I went to an Egyptian Dermatologist who told me these recessions were normal. Medical school opened my eyes to the possibilities of medical prophylaxis against balding, so I had decided to take Finasteride 1mg and Minoxidil topically to fight it. I continued these medications till I turned 23, then stopped. Bad idea. I was basically Norwood nothing, by the time I was 28, I lost my vertex, had a tuft for a forelock. By this time, I had networked enough to know who doctors go to for their transplants. I met a few friends who had amazing hair, told me of a surgeon in South India, decided to visit. The Meeting: It was a breeze booking an appointment. I would later sit on a flight for nineteen hours to make the trip, to get my hair back. Bummer I forgot my travel Pillow! Dr Ramachandran was a very calm, man (with a head full of thick hair!) who saw me at 11am. Asked me calmly what my expectations were. After close inspection of my hair and testing the laxity of my scalp, he decided FUT was the best procedure for my hair, to maximize results. He would try to get 2k grafts if I was lucky! (didn't give me big expectations). He booked an OR right after the holidays (Local new year). It was a breeze both getting the consultation visit as well as an appointment. Instructions: Wear a shirt. Bring a sandwich (they would provide me with that sandwich), wash hair twice, night before and day of with Providone-iodine. Minoxidil was already stopped 10 days prior (I came prepared!) and I arrived the day of the surgery, calm and ready. A narrow area where the donor site was marked was shaved by him personally, areas were marked. The surgical procedure itself was painless. He would talk to me through the whole procedure. A Long strip ear-to ear ~25cm and ~2-2.5m wide was excised. The tissue yielded 2700 grafts of mostly 2's, followed by 1s and 3's. All in all, approx 4600 hairs were moved. Excision of the tissue was ~2.5 hours. Closed with a trichophytic closure, double layered, inner nylon, outer vicryl rapid for self-absorption (I would return back to my country, he didn't want to trouble me with running to get them removed). The donor tissue was removed in two parts. While he excised the left occipital portion, his technicians sat under microscopes and dissected the hairs. After the donor excision, came the planting. The actual planting lasted around 6.5 hours. He decided to go around my forelock giving it a change for a while. I would later argument it with LLLT, medications and other methods. He did-not recommend any medications or treatments. The transplanted hairs would be DHT resistant. Since I had thick vertex hair, and minimal vertex thanks to the minoxidil, I deduced to continue my finasteride and replace this with topical finasteride compounded, at a later time. Again no pain during the planting. It was rather relaxing., I slept few times and woke to the movement of the table, the light was bright. He was kind to place an eye-patch. There was also a TV for those who want to stay awake for the procedure. However, I was already slightly sleepy and wanted to nap! He allowed me to use the restroom once. However he and his team of 10-12 who worked on me NEVER LEFT THE OR, never left the operating site. Shows true dedication to his work. He does everything himself, from marking, to shaving to removing the donor tissue, to implanting. Except the dissection, everything was done by Dr., Ramachandran. I have great respect for surgeons and the work they do. Personally I swayed away from a surgical profession due to my inability to stand still for five minutes. And he stood at his spot for nine-whole-hours working on my scalp. He does only one hair transplant per day if that is the case of the day. Brings tears to my eyes. He undersold but over delivered with 2700 grafts, covering the entire bald area he marked. After the procedure, he provided me with a kit comprising of a cap, gauze, a sterile spray bottle and some saline, that I would spritz q1-2 hours to prevent scabbing/clotting. He says the scabbing will occur anyway, I just shouldn't pick on them, but I can try the saline spray if I want. I did want. so he gave me a spray bottle. He also provided pain meds, steroids (to prevent edema) for 5 days. He did-not recommend any finasteride, minoxidil, said it was up to me and I could start after x days. Instructed how to shower my hair starting day 4 and provided wound care instructions for the donor site. Right now, as I write this, I am 11 days out. The grafts are likely anchored well. There is some scalp numbness but no pain. I still sleep up Bec its more comfortable and I dont want to compromise blood supply to the donor area, risk any scars. I also have some silicon scar cream that I intend to apply from day 14, and finally, he told me to scrub the graft sites hard on day 14 --------------- Overall, the procedure and after care with Dr. Ramachandran was excellent. The following thread will photo-document my journey from tresses to tress! There isn't much on Dr Ramachandran on these forums. Very few posts, despite him being a Veteran surgeon who went from plugs to mini-micrografts, to FUT and FUE. His clinic did-not even try to make me take up PRP or any other secondary treatments. In my humble opinion (as well as the numerous physicians he has operated on) he is truly a professional and ethical surgeon. I vouch for his craftsmanship. My only expectation is that I dont want to have a shiny scalp. Time will tell if this expectation, can be my new reality. Photos to follow. PIC 1: Donor site Marked, shaved by the surgeon himself. PIC 2: Recipient site PIC 3 Post op DAY 0, 1 hour after (He offered to comb over after the procedure, LOLLOL Post op day 1: You can notice there is some swelling. Saline sprays that night helped clean up some of the serous fluid build up around the grafts Just a pic of me Before, the night before, to remind myself how bald I was!
  12. I am literally disgusted at Dr. Bhatti & Co behavior !!!!! Like @Panamera13 said, Bhatti is lucky to be in India because in some other country he wouldn't go away with it so easily. Refund should be given in goodwill! I didn't quite understand what @Badresults 's employer has to do with all this? Can someone explain? If everything I read is true, this is a great opportunity for the forum to gain trust and reputation and remove Bhatti from the recommended surgeons asap.
  13. Nice video, SL. A few thoughts: Why are chest hairs better than stomach hairs? You say on the video that you use chest hairs but not stomach because the stomach hairs and leg hairs are vellus hairs. Not true in my case. My stomach hairs are exactly the same as my chest hairs. They are good calibre robust hairs and they grow pretty long, I would guess at least 3 inches and I have to clip them all the time. Dr. Bhatti said in another video that stomach hairs have a much shorter anagen phase than chest hairs. If that is true, why do my stomach hairs seem to grow just as long as my chest hairs? I am interested in using my beard, chest and stomach hairs to add density to an old transplant, because I have a depleted scalp donor area and also strip scars I would like to fix. I have denser hair on my stomach than on my chest, though plenty of hair in both places. I'm also concerned about the higher transection rates and lower survival rates of these hairs. But why the distinction between chest and stomach when they appear, at least in my case, to be identical?
  14. Wow this is extremely disugsting and shameful. But I am not surprised doctors and their representatives go to such lengths to attack their patients. I had a similar experience with Medlinks' Gaurang who is an absolute fraud and liar and completely botched my hair transplant. Moreover, when I posted about my bad results hrere his staff created fake accounts and started astroturfing Damage Done to DONOR by fraud Gaurang and Medlinks I am glad I didn't reveal my identity on my post. Otherwise, I might have ended up getting harrassed by Medlinks too. If the details revealed by @Badresults are indeed true then Dr. Bhatti should be immediately removed from the list of recommended surgeons on the forum.
  15. That’s not true at all, we’ve removed several surgeons from our list, and we’ve been sued over a dozen times because of it. I’m insulted that you would insinuate such a thing. Check our history, we were the only place to stick up to Dr. Armani over a decade ago when everyone else censored patients- this is public knowledge and verifiable by a quick google search.
  16. Dr. Dorin performed an utra-refined FUT consisting of 2008 grafts - 644 singles, 1245 doubles, 119 threes.Propecia initiated at the same time as his procedure. This is an auspicious start and atypical but we do see this from time to time. Usually this stage of development can be expected at around the 8 - 10 month mark.
  17. Hey all, I've been a long time lurker and recently took the plunge and did a transplant. I thought I'd share the results here as I'm pretty satisfied. I originally researched Dr. Panine 3 or 4 years ago and did a consultation as I had started receding. I met with Stuart at the time who handled my case was was very knowledgeable in general. Originally I was impressed but could just not afford the operation and didn't want my parents paying for it. Then in 2019 in the middle of march I took the plunge after going back for a second consultation. Stuart was still working there and remembered my case, we talked for a while, I met the Dr again, then I booked it. I wasn't promised anything crazy, since Dr. Panine had seen my Dad's hairline, he filled in where it would fall, and extended my hairline to the perfect spot. The procedure itself took something like 12 hours. I was very nervous at first, but the office is nice and you get this million dollar view of the lake while they work on you. Then within an hour I was chatting with everyone and comfortable. Post procedure I did have really strong swelling, which you can see in one of the pictures. For the next 2 weeks it looks like I was in the ring with mike tyson, and I lost. I was fortunate enough to be able to work just over 4 weeks remote for work, otherwise it would be really difficult to hide swelling and scars. I don't know if that's unique to me but I would urge people to expect a longer recovery. At least that's true for a person like me with very light skin and hair. I also was not able to take pain pills as they made me throw up, so I stuck to tylenol and alleve. Truthfully the pain wasn't that bad, it was just uncomfortable. It took a couple of months for the grafts to start coming in so I wore my hair long in a very awkward style. I wore a hat whenever I could. I was pretty upfront with most people that knew and saw me about my transplant. Everyone was curious, some people even asked for number/address of Dr. Panine which I provided. At the moment I take 1mg Finasteride and the results are probably so subtle I don't notice it. But I do believe it's keeping more of my hair from falling as I don't see several strands when I comb my hair anymore. Overall if I had to do it again, I totally would. The results are worth it, and when you start to see the hairs coming in thicker you feel on top of the world. You get back the restoration of confidence that no amount of money can give you. I actually probably will go back and do another in a couple of years because one of my sides isn't as thick as the other. When I go back, I'll go to Dr. Panine because I trust him and his work. Also just to be clear I was not paid, nor given a discount for this review. Also no one at Dr. Panine's office asked me to do it, I offered as I am happy with my results and appreciate all of them. day of procedure, I got these pics from Stuart: recovery progress in june I took at home: recovery progress in june, I tried to keep same lighting, camera and time of day as my last one:
  18. I insist on what I wrote. After my article on this forum Melvin contacted me about my name and date of HT and he wrote to the Asmed about my case. After that Asmed contacted me that Dr. Erdogan will analyze my photos once again and let me know. It was on 12th of March 2020. Since this date nobody from Asmed contacted me as usually... This has been going on for 2 years. This is ethical and professional? If Asmed claims that they deal with all bad cases and solve them, then this is not true...
  19. @JEDS Theres a lot of great surgeons to choose form in NYC. True and Dorin, Dr. Wesley, Dr. Bernstein, and Dr. Bloxham. Below is a link where you can submit your photos for free virtual consultations. I also suggest taking a look at each one of their profiles, you can see their work and their reviews on their profile. https://www.hairtransplantnetwork.com/Consult-a-Physician/surgeon-list/NY/New-York
  20. I'd like to add to the wealth of knowledge about Dr. Diep since it seems he has many reviews here that are mostly positive. The jury is still out on this one, but I have high hopes so far. I am 33 years old and paid ~16k total for this FUE procedure and it was booked about 9 months in advance. I *almost* backed out a few days before after reading some scary reviews on realself and after hearing Dr. Diep's reputation for using a large punch size, but I went ahead anyway since he had a solid reputation on this forum. I've always had a high hairline since I can remember (I recall a girl calling me out for a receding hairline when I was 16), but I don't think I actually had noticeable miniaturization occurring until about 27. My father is nearly completely bald, and my brother's hair (who is about 7 years old) has progressive hairloss that is a bit worse than mine. I would say that for most men my age that are suffering from pattern baldness, mine is relatively milder (likely due to my early attempts at treatment). Some might say I am crazy for getting FUE at this stage of hairloss, but it is bothering me enough and it is difficult to style the hair the way I want (I have a huge forehead so I generally wear it down and to the side). My hair is currently receding in the temple areas a few inches and I believe it is starting to thin in the crown area as well. Here is where my hair currently is: You can kind of see on the right side of the picture of my temple area where I think the hairline used to be - one sole surviving hair seems to be nice and thick still. As far as treatments go, I probably have propecia and keto use for the last 4 years or so to thank for the relatively minor hairloss I have (compared to my brother at least). I hadsides when I started propecia, so I experimented with dosage and and also used grape seed extract as a way to counteract the effects (I forgot the mechanism involved but I read about it a long time ago and it seemed to work). I landed on taking approximately .5 mg every 3 days. Any more often and I start to get foggy brain. I sometimes try to increase it to EoD but I just can't do it because the brain fog messes with my job performance. Anyway, on to the stuff you guys probably care about. I initially paid for 1750, but Dr. Diep convinced me it would be a good idea to at least give him an allowance of an extra 100 based on the line he drew to restore my hairline. I also went with the A-cell - cost wasn't that huge of an issue for me and there didn't seem to be any drawbacks other than extra cost: This was exactly what I was looking for - even though I was tempted to lower my hairline a bit since my forehead is so large, I decided ahead of time that I should keep it conservative and simply restore what I had previously. I didn't want to deplete all my donor hair in case I needed more in the future. I also wanted to avoid possibly having an artificial looking hairline by at least having native hair closer to blend in with the implanted hair. I've seen Diep do magic with hairline lowering, but I've also seen some less than stellar results so I didn't want to take any chances. The half a CM or so that it appears to be lowering is simply because you can't really see the few straggler hairs that had not yet receded. As far as how the procedure went, it was fairly typical as others on this forum have described. The Dr. was already working with a patient when I arrived at 7:30, and he told me that he would be done with that patient in the early AM and would be with me for the rest of the day (that turned out to be not really true - once he finished making the recipient incisions, he only came and checked on the technicians performing the implants every now and then). I was given a concoction of pills and then waited about an hour and a half before the doctor came to begin the extractions (around 9:30-10). I did not fall asleep like most others describe but I was fairly relaxed. I experienced some pain from the anesthetic injections, and also had some pain during some of the FUE extractions in a particular area, and I recall him giving additional anesthetic injections for that. I don't know what size punch he used, but he indicated during pre-op that he used between .9 and 1mm - he explained his reasons for the larger punch and while I am aware I could have insisted on a smaller punch, his results speak for themselves and I think its best to let the doctor do things his way. Many of the criticisms I've read thus far regarding the punch size have been focused on how the donor area looked just after the procedure, but I haven't seen any real criticisms of his donor areas in the long term - and I also had not read of donor reserves being unusable as a result. The FUE extractions came from the back and my right side, as seems to be common with Dr. Diep (and debated about in other threads). I think the jury is still out as to whether this should really be done, but I can say that the left side of my donor area is well preserved for any future need, though I am not sure I like how far near the right ear he went with the extractions. That said, I will generally not be buzzing my hair very short anyway (5 guard minimum) so I don't think this will be an issue for me - you can see from the photos how I generally wear my hear. He made sure to minimize any shaving of hair at my hairline since I plan to return to work after 3 weeks and I am hoping (though I am skeptical) to disguise the work with a mixture of clever styling, makeup, topik, etc. One criticism I had about this procedure is once the extractions/incisions were done and lunch was provided, I asked for another round of sedatives (xanex/valium) since what I had so far wasn't really doing the trick and I had much more time to remain in the chair. I wasn't provided that - I am not sure why. The second half of the procedure was fairly uncomfortable - I was generally conscious and could feel each insertion of graft (though no pain from it initially). The inability to move at all due to the inserting of grafts, combined with the very chatty techs who were talking/laughing very loudly inches from my ear talking about all sorts of things (strip clubs, dating, etc), and the lack of any sedative effect, made for a very uncomfortable 6 hour process. I believe they started inserting the grafts around 2pm, and when 5 rolled around or so and I was basically wide awake, I asked how much longer it would be, and I was told 2 hours. Well, 2 hours rolled by and I asked again how much longer, and I was told 30 minutes. The anesthetic had mostly worn off and I was starting to feel pain/pressure and decided to just power through it (they asked if I wanted the Dr. to come apply more anesthetic but I declined since they were almost done, I thought). But it took another hour and a half and everyone from the office was pretty much gone except the technicians and the doctor. The post-op instruction lady came in and decided to give me my post op instructions and sign it while I was still laying on the chair and getting grafts placed, which I thought was kind of odd (do you think I am going to remember this well while I am getting stuck with grafts?) I understand that things happen and just sometimes take longer, but I couldn't help but feel like there was a sense of being rushed at the end (techs complaining about being hungry and what not). By the time things were wrapping up, I was asking for the painkillers prescribed to try and get ahead of the pain that I could feel coming on. The painkillers they gave me did not seem to have any effect on me (Tramadol) so my girlfriend and I drove straight to the pharmacy, and wouldn't you know everything was closed by 10pm, and the one 24 hour pharmacy was out of percocet. Most people describe the post-op pain as being relatively minor but I was experiencing the worst head pressure/pain I had ever felt. I ended up quickly glancing through the post-op instructions and seeing something about how ibuprofen can be taken 4 days post-op and in my pain and dizzyness from the valium, believed that meant I could take ibuprofen and took 3 (turns out I wasn't supposed to do that because of the blood thinning effect). While his written instructions, if you actually parse out the language, say that you can take ibuprofen after the 4th day, it is very easy to misread the instructions if you are in a daze from the sedatives and in a lot of pain. I was mildly annoyed because my girlfriend had been in the waiting room since 4 pm and could have picked up the prescriptions for me as I had asked (but they declined to let her because they said they already had painkillers for me). A word about the post-op instruction packets - I also don't understand why there are two different sets of post-op instruction packets which address the same issues and in some cases are contradictory (one set of instructions are telling you how to clean the recipient area each day after surgery but the second set clearly says you should *not* touch the recipient area until day 4). Dr. Diep was very pleasant during the pre-op but I didn't talk with him much after the procedure. I believe he came in to check on the technicians about once every 30-45 minutes during the insertion of the grafts and to take final photos. I went to my first post-op wash and was hoping to get a rundown of how he felt about the procedure, but he was too busy when I was there, so I am hoping to catch him in one of the other cleanings if possible. Anyway, here is the stuff you guys probably care about: Other than taking ibuprofen after the surgery, everything seems to be normal. Once I woke up, i was no longer in pain and haven't really felt anything yet. The doctor told me the ibuprofen won't have any effect on the graft survival, it can just cause excessive bleeding from the donor area (doesn't seem to be a huge issue at the moment). I also apparently misinterpreted the pre-op instructions regarding smoking - the warning made specific reference to the dangers of nicotine - so I assumed that smoking marijuana was still OK (I used marijuana semi-regularly 1-2 times/week), and had smoked it 4 days prior to the surgery. Dr. Diep didn't like that but said it should be fine, but advised me to refrain from any marijuana use for an "entire year" ?!?!. From what I've been reading, it seems that the general MO is to refrain from smoking anything for a month or so, but after that I can resume. Cannabis has been show to inhibit growth of hair generally from what secondary sources I've read, but it doesn't appear from anything I could find that would cause the failing of hair grafts once the grafts are fully healed. If anyone has better information they could chime in? Anyway, thanks for listening. Any tips to disguise the hair implant would be greatly appreciated - I can't wear a hat as I work in a courtroom so its very important to look professional. I might also just need to fess up and tell everyone why I took a 3 week vacay - but we''ll see. Thanks for listening.
  21. You have Dr. Bernstein, True and Dorin, Dr. Wesley, and Dr. Bloxham. Most surgeons in NYC charge for their consultations, but I believe due to this epidemic, they are waiving these fees for virtual consultations. Take some time and look at their physician profile, where you can see real patient reviews as well. I suggest consulting with all of them- this way you can get a ballpark figure for cost and the grafts you will require. https://www.hairtransplantnetwork.com/Consult-a-Physician/surgeon-list/NY/New-York
  22. After extensive research of clinics and submitting several online consultations, you will generally have a gut feeling over who is the right surgeon for you. Naturally it is the surgeon and his/her results and reputation of patient care that will have originally attracted you to them. Ultimately, we as patients begin this process with the single motivation of excellent surgical results. But it is also true that there is often a lengthy and thorough process from your original contact with the clinic until you final result at 12+ months post op. Such steps include your online or in person consultation and receiving and understanding the Doctors recommendations, many questions and further education before scheduling and then eventually undergoing surgery, and the anxious wait post surgery before your growth begins. With this in mind, your patient advisor also plays a vital role. A patient advisor extends the philosophy of the surgeon and will support their patient from the first point of contact, until the final result and beyond. Here is a brief video explaining the role and responsibility of a patient advisor.
  23. Hi guys! Im new here in this great community, but definitely not new to hairloss stuff. I already had a fair research with a help of this forum and users experiences, as part of my journey to my (soon) HT. I will tell my story in short. Im 30, and been suffer from hairloss for about 10 years. There are no words to describe how this has been effecting my life, Im pretty sure more than almost anybody else here. I always have been concern with my look to a level of obsession, and in some point I realized I have BDD (body dysmorphic disorder) , Started as a teenager, got in depression cause I didnt like my appearance. But with time I grew up nice and was very pleased, till hairloss kicked in. I can actually remember the very day it started lol, I noticed my temples receded a tiny bit, and got panicked immediately. and from that point, it was doomed. I became obssesed with my hairloss 24/7, it increased my overall bdd to a new levels. I immediately jump on meds, but they didnt stop it, dont know if they did anything but I just kept taking them. with the years hairloss kept advancing slow but steady - major temple recession, front hairline receded a bit, and thinning on top. I realize in some point that HT is my only option to get my hair back and actually get my life back, and did a research 2 years ago and consultation with both Bisanga and Lupanzula, which both were great, but I ended up deciding to postpone it for several reasons. And now it is the time for sure. So, to the point, I need your help and opinions on any matter here that can help me get the best that I can. I added pics below. My goal is to restore my hairline and temples - This is the most important for me, I have to have a good frame, and preferable good density in hairline and behind it. I want to lower a bit the hairline and even consider to reconstruct the temples points a bit. As about the procedure type - I thought Im going for FUE all the time, but after reading in this forum Im not so sure. I read alot of advantages for FUT - you can get more grafts from your donor, the yield is higher, and overall better chance for more quality results, is that true? Yes of course there is a scar, but first Im not going to shave my head never in my life. I do shave the back and sides closer than the top of course, but not on zero guard, so im not sure how much of a problem it will be. Also, the price is lower, which is a plus, but I want to say here that generally price is only second priority for me. Second, Im still not sure which doctor to choose. Im from middle east, and the best for me would be someone from Europe (I dont even consider turkey). currently in my list are Bisanga - great surgeon, care about his patients, I already had consultation with him in the past and I got very good impression. but he specialize mainly on FUE, and if I decided on FUT I guess there are better options? Also, is his type of work considered dense packing? Im not sure. I would love to get good density in the front. De Freitas - which has amazing results, but im not sure about waiting list, does someone here knows what to expect? and also, I heard that communication is problematic since he speaks spanish. I dont know, but it seems like an issue to me. Feriduni - great doctor as well. but most of his cases look too conservative to me. and he is also specialize on FUE (?) what you think? Dr.Maras from HDC, cyprus - He is a great, reputable surgeon, with great results. And although he is recommended doctor here, I dont see many posts about him, or even mentions, when people here talk about the best doctors. I wonder why is that, wouldnt you consider him in the same level as the other top tier doctors in this list? Im not sure about his specialty in FUT though. But the good thing is his clinic very close to me, and actually has representation in my country. Hattingen - I heard about this clinic here, and saw some good results posted by them, but not alot of patient results. I do read many opinions of people praising this clinic, but I really cant tell I guess... The rest of the options are in US/Canada. I mean, I really hate flights, and long flights to canada or US seem like nightmare for me. Im not afraid of flights, Im just kind of big guy and it's really uncomfortable for me to sit there for so many hours. But since I cant compromise on the outcome even a bit, I guess I would have to take them into account as well. in my list: Dr Hasson from H&W - I read so many great things about Hasson. Looked for lots of patients posted results. not one negative review, and almost all are amazing, and also lots of cases similar to mine, with outcome I would kill for. I think he is actually number one for me in the list, since he does great FUT as well as FUE. The only problem is the distance about 13 hours flight. What do you think? would you fly so far for this? it really bothers me... and what if, god forbids, I will need a touch up or something? those flights can be very inconvenient. Im not even talking about frontal consultation, which Im not sure if they require it before the procedure. Dr.Konior - also great doctor as I read hear and some other places, but I really know less about him than the others. Im still in the research phase so I will get some more knowledge on those doctors and other that come up. This list is not closed at all, I would be happy to hear any (honest) opinion or suggestion. I would appreciate any response, and you can be sure that I will share with you my experience, when it happen, hopefully soon. Pics attached look really bad when it is not styled and combed... but I need to show them.
  24. I went to a surgeon who wasn't very good, he pretty much gave me a hairline that started in my midscalp. The results didn't look good, and left a lot to be desired. The next procedure with Dr. Diep, is when I saw an enormous change in my appearance. I did my crown in 2016, but I also reinforced the midscalp. I had about 600-700 grafts in the crown and that was also Diep. The crown is bare, and I use concealer to make it look good, for full transparency here is what my crown looks like without concealer, and obviously the density is an illusion. You can see the true density when I part it down the middle. I want to give you realistic expectations. If you think hair transplants are gonna solve all your problems they won't.
