    Does PRP Stop Hair Loss

    Well, you guys are in luck. Back in early November I received a PRP+Acell treatment from Dr. Arocha during hid visit to Dallas. That puts me around the five month mark. Some important things to note: I had started on Minoxidil about three months prior and was just exiting the crazy shedding phase. Hair was probably at an all time low for multiple reasons. I've been on Fin for three years. Around December or so I started working in dermastamping as well since my research indicated it was very synergistic with the mechanism of PRP along with the Minoxidil. I declined at that time to try LLLT as well. By three months I definitely noticed that I was no longer seeing my scalp in harsh light, even in the weakest areas. I also noticed that the quality of my hair in general seemed better and my shedding was reduced. Lastly, and perhaps most noticeable, is my hairline has crept down just shy of half an inch and has gradually filled in. It's not bulletproof by any means, but I continue to see new growth. Many of these new hairs are not as strong and thick as I would like, but there is still time yet for them to get there considering where they started. I've taken note that a number of the hairs shedding in the shower are miniaturized to the point of invisibility on one end and at the root have thickened considerably and almost look like they were dipped in ink. They're not all like this, but I've definitely seen enough to feel encouraged that some of my existing hair is being salvaged. A couple of additional notes: Dr. Around said his treatments needed a refresh every 12 months, maybe 6 depending on the situation. I need to schedule a check-in to see what his thoughts are on my current progress. Now, for those who are about to jump in and say I can't single out PRP as the cause of my success...you're right. Dr. Arocha was very candid that the PRP was just going to be one component of the treatment and I suspect that is true. I'm waiting until about twelve months post treatment to determine "final" results and see if I notice strengthening of the newer hair within that timeframe. If I didn't grow any additional hair and just saw some thickening in the existing regrowth, I think that could potentially add up to a substantial improvement. For me, that will help determine whether it was "worth it." Questions welcome.
  2. Welp.....you seem to be adding your two sense quite a bit and also going in a circle. I want to know why infact the TRANSPLANTED HAIR has thinned from the success pictures? IT is CLEAR it HAS.....forget about your "hypothesis" Dr. FUEBLONDE just a for a second, k? Let's say my whole damn head went bald due to significat progression in alopecia, after the transplant. By the scientific studies you have "clearly" referenced then the "my hypothesis" would be that I should have my transplant DHT resistant hair from the FUT on my frontal hairline that was recreated...... and then be bald EVERWHERE else. (Dr. I didn't catch your name) Example picture attached doc for your research Dr. FUEBLONDE. While I believe the clinical findings in general you are referencing to, to indeed be true. (which is why I got a damn FUT in the first place and bought into the surgery) , I'm just curious can you reference a study and site your sources? Instead of trying to overcompensate to sound educated and like you know what you are talking about. Your facts are something that ANYONE who has undergone a FUE or FUT should already know?...Go ahead bud, look one up....and put your expert opinion and reasoning below. Thanks
  3. Has anyone here from the UK had successful results with GetHair? I was recommended by a friend and underwent a 2,100 graft FUE with Dr. Ilker Apaydin earlier this month. I have some feedback on the experience if anyone was thinking of going: Positives - A lot of the work was done by Dr. Apaydin himself. He made the incisions in the recipient area as well as around 33% of the extractions. The rest of the extractions and the implantations were done by his technical team. - The surgeon and I negotiated a hairline which I was very happy with. He took into account my age, level of recession as well as the shape of my skull, and did his best to ensure I was happy. - The surgeon is a member of the ISHRS. - Prior to the procedure, Zeynep briefed me on the next few days at the hotel/clinic, as well as ran me through the steps of the operation and who would be performing what. - The nurses seemed to be very methodical and confident in their work with no hesitations. They were communicating and assessing the grafting constantly throughout the op. I got the impression that they had been properly trained and were competent. On two separate occasions, the nurse and the doctor both informed me that they would not be talking since they needed to count the grafts, which gave me confidence that they were meticulous in their work. - The follow-up information was incredibly detailed; I was given strict guidelines to follow and a long list of dos/don'ts post-op. Leila who ran me through my post-op care went into a great amount of detail. - A couple of days post-hair transplant and the work does look very neat, with no complications or pain. - Very good communication and quick response from their rep Stuart in the UK, who was very conversational, welcoming and not at all salesy. I was given several emails containing lots of information in the lead up to the procedure. Stuart made sure I was kept in the loop. - Throughout the procedure, the doctor and assistants were constantly asking me if I were okay, or if I had any questions, which was very reassuring. - After the operation I was given a detailed breakdown report of the graft count, and number of hairs. Negatives - Several local anaesthetic injections were administered in quick succession by the nurses which were very painful (the pain from my previous procedure did not come close) - the adrenaline contained in the injections caused a rush that was almost traumatic, I think I may have gone slightly into shock as I was uncontrollably laughing. My heart rate was over 100bpm and I was convinced I was going to end up in cardiac arrest. The doctor told me this was normal and just a reaction to the adrenaline. The nurses did do their best to comfort me during this and calmed me down before starting the op. - At one point while I was having my bloods taken, I was injected in my wrist without warning. I asked the nurse what the injection was for but she could not speak English (it turned out my veins were not showing up enough for the PRP blood extraction). At another point during the procedure, I had questions but I was left alone in the room with nurses who could not speak English. - The doctor left partway through the procedure and did not come to assess the implantation conducted by the nurses while it was ongoing, but instead saw me the next morning when the operation was complete. - The clinic was part of a hospital (I was told this should ring alarm bells). When I came out to have my hair washed I saw a woman on a stretcher about to undergo a facelift. Something to me felt a bit 'outsourcey' as I was assisted in the morning and afternoon by two different reps (Zeynep and Leila, who despite this were both brilliant). I paid my transaction to GetHair but the pamphlet I was given post-op had the 'NewAge Clinic' title on it. If anyone asked me, I would say the operation went well. I took into consideration the doctor's experience and previous results. However, I am naturally a very anxious person and having undergone a procedure before, I know how painstaking the process of waiting for results can be. Sitting at home during the recovery period can cause your mind to wander and I started questioning my decision. To reassure myself I searched all the reviews of GetHair online and became slightly suspicious that nearly all the reviews are 5 stars, are from immediately after the op and not 12 months after, and seem perhaps a bit too good to be true. Does anyone here have any before and afters or results of GetHair/Dr. Apaydin that they can share to put my mind at ease?
  4. Hi Folks, Long time lurker; My very first post here with the intent to share and contribute based on my upcoming surgery in India with Darling buds and most importantly “ My results “ in the next few months. I feel morally obligated to contribute at least something back to this community that offers : A worldwide network of HT experts, reputed Senior members sharing invaluable info, Top rated HT surgeons positioning their point of views and most importantly "real patients sharing real stories". Background Male in mid-thirties from Canada; NW 3 - Less/More. Past 6 years were dark and depressing. Living in a fool’s paradise; using Toppik daily assuming everything’s fine but somewhere at a deeper level; it continuously bothered me. Finally in 2019; I made the big decision to get a HT. This website is the main reason as to why I was able to solidify on my research, move ahead with a concrete decision and was able to find one of the best doctor (just being positive here) as per my checklist/strict criteria. Special thanks to the Creator of this website – Kudos to the brain that kicked off this humanitarian initiative as it continues to educate millions of potential patients like myself. Why Darling Buds India (I guess they changed the name to 5 Rivers Hospital ) This piece takes forever to decide especially for someone like me who spends gazillions of hours on the Internet/YouTube/Forums. I was always skeptical about giving my Head to someone to be operated; so consulted with many Canadian, American, European, Indian and Turkish clinics. Many reputed names like Dr. Rahal ( Known as the hairline king from Canada), Dr Acar ( Cosmedica Turkey), Dr. Erdogan ( Turkey), Aestimed ( Turkey), LA Hair ( USA), Qunomedical ( Belgium & German clinics), Dr. Cinik ( Turkey) and the list goes on……………………………………………. but None fitted my checklist in it's entirety reflecting 8 Key deciding factors that was prepared after extensive research for years 🙄 : 1. Max cost under 10,000 CAD ( 7500 USD ) for 3500-4000 Grafts to be able to achieve maximum density in my case. YES, I decided to find the best treatment within this range. IMHO, paying this much should suffice in getting you a world class, still affordable HT in today’s age with advanced Technologies, Globalization, the power of internet and competitive market. It's costing me around 9000 CAD ( including some expensive flight tickets) with Dr. Bhatti which seems adequate for the reputation he has or rather a steal ( not sure - will tell later) If budget wasn’t a constraint, I would’ve booked Dr. Rahal ( Canada ) who is local to me OR Dr. Baubac ( Alvi Armani USA) more importantly to save myself from the hassle of flying 20 hours one way, then drive to a different city, book a hotel for a week, apply for a visa, Take few weeks of vacation from work etc. Dr Rahal charges 8 CAD per FUE, most other clinics would cost the same in N. America for FUE Treatment. It’s costing me around 2.40 CAD with Dr. Bhatti ( includes all international/ Local flights, Visa, Hotel, Food, Cab etc.). If you compare Dr Bhatti's fee with his peers who fall in the same reputed arena of global doctors, I think most would sign this off as a great offering for hair loss patients globally. Eugenix quoted around 4 CAD per graft but it was for DHI method. They produced some great results lately and they are the inventors of DHI which is now adapted globally; goes to show that they are researchers also - very impressive. As of 2019, I think Dr. Bhatti and Eugenix should be compared as top players if India is the selected destination for your HT Journey ( My comparison below) I almost finalized Eugenix over Dr. Bhatti but then based on my research, took a U Turn : Eugenix positive aspects: 1. Biggest is DHI - OUT/IN grafts within minutes. Definitely better method as compared to Traditional FUE . I could only find positives so far, no negatives on DHI. It's hard to logically beat DHI method with traditional FUE; so no doctor should even try it IMO. I wish Dr Bhatti would offer DHI to his patients by now ☹ 2. Clinics are located in major cities like Delhi and Mumbai. No need to drive / fly again from major airport all the way to Chandigarh. Eugenix Negative aspects: 1. Some patients mentioned that they were taken for a ride. Eugenix Docs prey on foreign nationals; after or during mid surgery – Dr. Bansal asked for 500 more grafts payment as required and payment must be done during the middle of the operation ( insane); also no breakdown/reasoning was provided in the end. On the contrary, Darling buds has returned some fee to few patients to their surprise which is a classy act of ethical business in my opinion (hard to find) 2. Eugenix costs are almost double than Darling buds( quite expensive for many) but anyways DHI is more costlier than traditional FUE globally and if results are better with more graft survival rate, most patients wouldn't mind paying more. 3. Eugenix is run in a satellite office format, more than one location and hard to get a hold of prime doctors - Dr. Sethi and Dr. Bansal where as Dr. Bhatti provides a peace of mind with one location, one clinic, one doctor who is also the owner of that entire facility with 15 good staff members well trained under him in a peaceful non polluted city near a hill station. #3 was a critical factor in my decision to go with Dr. Bhatti In short, I would’ve loved DHI for best results but I settled with FUE for now Note: Out of thousands, This site recommends ONLY 2 surgeons from Turkey, 7 surgeons from India and 1 from Canada ( I was surprised to see only Dr. Rahal in the list, yes Hasson is there but they're again advocates of FUT ), so HRN really helped me short list 10 surgeons before making the final call 2. ONLY FUE for ME – My heart said a Big “No“ to a linear scar; doesn’t matter if some Doctors persuade you with somewhat genuine reasoning's to avoid FUE such as : FUE provides Less density, FUT offers more grafts and saves Donor area as untouched for future sessions, FUE is a blind process etc. Dr. Feller and Dr. Soni ( Medispa India) seems like the two biggest advocates of FUT over FUE and I agree with some of their explanations as it sounds logical. Dr. Soni really pushed me to sign up with FUT and said his scar technique is different. Promised that he will close it in a way where almost no scarring is visible . It was tough buying into that argument, additionally recent negative reviews about him and I finally decided to brush him aside at that point. 3. Doctor MUST perform the operation (No technicians) – I could only find someone as reputed as Dr. Bhatti who performs 80% of the procedures that includes Hair trimming (to feel your hair ), Anesthesia, FUE Extractions with motorized punch and Incisions. In Turkey where I was almost sold at one point, all operations are run by Technicians. Not a Plastic surgeon, no educational background/ competency level ( it's scary as they're known as the butchers of HT industry) I wish Dr. Bhatti would implant the grafts too ( not his nurses) for extra cost but I guess it will be a tedious job for a busy surgeon to sit for another 4 hours or so ....... Am I asking for too much 4. World class facility matching North American standards : with Heart rate monitoring, proper blood tests, blood pressure check up, spotless , Face coverings during entire operation and sterile environment. 5. Super microscopes and Magnifiers is a must ( Most Turkish clinics operate with naked eyes, when I asked they tried to sell me bull *&**** ) This is extremely important during all 4 phases of operation : Extraction – To make sure proper gaps are left in between grafts in the donor area and get the right angle before using the punch. Sorting – To count how many pure singles, doubles, triples and quads ( if any ) are collected. Incisions – To ensure least collateral damage, magnifier will show 6 x scalp surface so during incisions, holes are made at the right angle, depth and only on bald scalp areas ( not where you've some fine hairs). This should also minimize some shock loss in the post op phase. Implantation - Imperative to only use pure singles / baby soft hairs in the very first few rows of hairline and Temples. If by mistake, they implant doubles – it will give a pluggy look and I would rate that transplant as 50% failed right then and there. If during implant, nurses grab a multi - haired graft, at least microscopes will allow them to revisit to find a pure single graft and then insert it in the right spot. Joe Tillman's video is quite helpful : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MeQ4ZvEHb7Y 6. Doctor should have a solid reputation on major forums, hair restoration network, should be well read, traveled, have some global exposure, recommended by Bald-truth, Spex and many other HT mentors like Joe Tillman. Dr. Bhatti checks all those boxes. Yes – there are some mixed opinions about him (and every other Top HT surgeon out there) but perfection is impossible to achieve; so I decided to just look at the bigger picture and go for it. 7. Detailed info, pre op care, post op care, regular contacts and supporting your patients in their hours of greatest needs is of utmost importance. Its well know that Dr. Bhatti, Shera ( his rep) , California would contact their ex. Patients regarding some concerns, would stand by them and not disappear. This was impressive. 8. Patient advisor should be genuine, honest and straightforward – So far, Shera has been awesome, friendly and taking care of all my minor/ major concerns. Always reachable, quick responses and a real time patient who has experienced the same Doctor few years ago first hand. In the long run, it helps to have a contact like him for small chats if need be. I will continue to share my Journey with Darling buds and also, highlight If any red flags are there. So far, I’m just one naive internet researcher in this field who talks based on theories and hypothetical situations, I don’t have any practical experiences yet. Assuming I've made a good decision by choosing this clinic (over others) and trying to keep a positive mindset hoping I will be in good hands is the only thing I can do now. One Sr. Member said it wisely – “For Dr. Bhatti and his staff ( or other clinics) 18th March will be just another day with another patient like thousands came before and will come after, but for a patient who’s been researching on this constantly day/night, it’s a big life event and 18th is one of the most important day of his life after which either he could regain his lost confidence or could loose it forever “ After all, handing off your head to someone for the entire day isn’t one easy decision I’ve seen members here supporting each other against doctors if results aren’t satisfactory. That speaks volumes and the main reason as to why I joined here to gain support from my so called “Anonymous hair restoration family” Dr. Bhatti's hairlines were talked about – not too dense? Any suggestions? Should I revisit this with him ? I don't want a sparse hairline but Not sure if this was an old issue (one -off) Also, I’ve not met Dr Bhatti for any F2F consulting yet or a video consultation, plan is to meet him a day before my procedure. So far, Shera is my driving force. I’m hoping for a life changing experience (like many others), regain my lost confidence and I always say “ Hope “ is something that brings us to these Doctor’s doorsteps. Yes finance and reviews are important aspects but we all hope to be treated in the best possible way during our special treatment day. A little daunting for me to fly all the way, get operated in a surgical room, holes in my head but I’m collecting all the courage in this world to get this done. Shera is helping like one true Samaritan If some of you are able to read this completely, my apologies for such a long note but this is the only forum where I am able to write everything anonymously and vent out if need be. My Journey to be continued……………………………………………………………………………………............................................
  5. 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.
  6. Hello, I had my HT with Dr. Path in Bangkok on the 29th of September 2011, and boy was I glad I did!! I received 3956 grafts and everything went very smoothly. Dr.Path is a very professional doctor and knew exactly what I wanted. I just couldn't thank him enough for making this a very pleasant experience, unlike my first HT with another Dr. This was my 2nd transplant, as my first, performed by some doctor called Dr. Tahsin Al Wahab in Bahrain 2 yrs ago, was a complete waste of time, money, and 2200 grafts! I have asked him lots of questions prior to the surgery only to find out that he lied to me. I asked him if he would be transplanting the grafts himself and he said he would only to find out that the nurses did most of the work, and the only thing he did was butcher me!! He "literally" butchered my head while removing the grafts.. He actually was ripping off the skin with his fingers that I could hear my skin being ripped off like a piece of cloth which led to a severe cut in the blood vessels. I was in total shock seeing how brutal he was performing the surgery on me and blood was pouring from my head down to my shoulders that I actually felt so nauscious and light headed. He didn't even bother to at least stitch it, but rather stitched the outer skin in hopes that the vessels would heal their own. All of this which I didn't know was happening until later. I suffered from horrible pain for 3 weeks post op as my donor area was VERY swollen because of the blood accumulating under the stitched skin.I just couldn't bare the pressure it caused! I went to 4 doctors hoping that someone would help relieve the pain but no one did. they all asked me to go the doctor who performed the surgery to remove the stitches and fix the problem. When I went back to Dr. Tahsin for the 2nd time, begging him that there is something wrong and this didn't seem right, he was very rude and actually told me to "toughen up" and get over it and that this is all part of the healing process, which I knew was not true and that I didn't have to go through all this pain. 3 weeks post op, while I was working on my laptop trying to forget about the pain, all of a sudden the stitches split open because of the pressure of the accumulated blood and I was bleeding from head to toe, like a F*****G pig!! I don't know how, but I managed to call my parents who happen to live near by to come and rush me to the ER. I reached the ER completed RED from head to toe! The doctor was shocked and immediately rushed me to the operations room to perform surgery under full anesthesia, which I had to pay over a $1300 for!! Not to mention the money I paid for the HT surgery as well which I didn't see any good results except for a very wide donor area scar. I decided to share my story with everyone to help other people make right decisions!! DO YOUR HOMEWORK!! research well and never let the price of an HT dictate your choice of a doctor!! An unprofessional doctor can actually kill you!! Its not worth it !! anyway, here's my pics before and one week post op with Dr. Path... Its now one month post op and the transplanted hair is shedding.. which is making me worry a bit! But I do hope they will start to grow back in a couple of months .. I know that Dr. Path is a great doctor and I can't wait to see the results. Let me know what you think
  7. Hi HLP, Great write-up, and solid reasoning! I just came from my post regarding the DHT methods. Seems like you made a really solid choice. That mid-surgery payment seems extremely troubling, and very strange, if it is true. I was looking to consult with Eugenix/Dr. Sethi, but I should probably do a deeper dive into client testimonials. Best of luck mate, really hope it works out for you
  8. 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.
  9. And here we have the essence of this thread and the realities. I don't see any before pics. But I will assume this was a frontal hairline rebuild job. And being completely blunt....it is a pretty good result. Yes, it could be more "refined" maybe more subtle transition and and I agree with another poster, I would have had higher temples. But this is very much part of being an adult and taking ownership of what you want. Not just letting someone you have never met decide your hairline. So for sure any perspective patients need to know what they want going in. It is much better than letting a stranger decide the morning of. You should design your hairline. However, perhaps more often I see patients going for too aggressive hairlines and feel doctors need to be ore reserved in giving those. I think the Dr. who did this patient actually over does hairlines. I think maybe in parts of the world where many of his patients come from that is appreciated. Back to this. I see a pretty dense hairline for a HT. I have no idea what you stated with,,,but this is solidly middle of the road looking. With 7-800 grafts it could be really maxed and be a better than average result. That the patient doesn't like the design is irrelevant. That was a communication problem and has nothing to do with the skill set. Here is the rub. Plenty of guys would love results like yours. You instead hate them. From the pics (and I doubt you sent the most flattering ones) it seems like you really have nothing to hide. In fact the forward comb down looks to me much worse than what is under it. I would say this is a better result coverage wise than Melvin. But completely a case where expectations were well beyond what they should have been. I get the feeling this patient would not be happy unless he had the same hair he had when he was 13. HT is and should be a tool to make a bald guy not a bald guy any longer. Not take the hair equivalent of a quadriplegic and turn him into a Olympic athlete. This looks like good density in these pics for a single procedure and if someone is disappointed in it....then the simple reality is this is a case where the expectation is too high. We read 50% of original density good. Some people infer that means looks good as it did with no thinning. They are WRONG. It means they appear to have hair and not obviously thinned at casual glance. A HT will never hold up to close inspection. Now I will say some doctors...sometimes recklessly and sometimes brilliantly super dense pack a frontal area with massive amounts of grafts and get a look in all lights and views full kid density. But those are extreme cases. If you think you can go to the McDonalds of HT and get that in one pass. You were living in a dream world. I say this patient appears to have gotten a good HT and certainly to the casual person they meet, looks far from a bald guy now. He did get kind of a unrefined hairline and partly that is what the doc he picked does. But he also had the opportunity to go with a more natural design. And even if the artistry here is not the best. A few hours in the chair could make it terrific. I think a lot of guys with a result would be bragging here how it was life changing. You are saying it is detrimental. For sure a good example of glass 1/2 empty or full and how different humans have different expectations, perspectives a whats of handling them. Listen, I learned the hard way too...but I am not complaining. I bought into the argument and illusion that 50% of original density would give me almost perfect hair. You know what, it doesn't! It took a train wreck of a head of hair and made it presentable and where it wasn't really impacting my looks in a meaningful way and people notice me and my hair is good enough that nobody looks at it. Think of it like another body part most of us ignore...ARMS. If someone has unusually muscular arms...people notice. If they are so weak and maybe slightly disabled giving off sings of bad health or weakness....we notice that too. But on a guy, his arms can be in the bottom 20% or top 20% and damnit, nobody is going to even notice his arms one way or another. We just notice really obvious things on other people! Have a head that is closer to full than bald and people's eyes go elsewhere. That is what HT is really about. When I go out on a date now, I am under no illusion my hair is helping me or hurting me. Now if a 20y old dude with crazy great hair sat down in my lap, then the girl I am out with might notice my hair is a little lackluster. I think some people want perfect hair of a teenager. They will be disappointed even with a decent result by real world standards of HT. The guy who just want's to look presentable and hair not be a major impact on his overall look....then yes, he will be happy with typically good results. Melvin's hair looks like crap in the wrong light and with nothing done compared to someone with zero hair loss. But with a bit of effort and in the game of life, he is a guy with hair that is good enough not to take away from his looks. Compare him side by side with mode hair....it might hilght his weakness. HT didn't restore him to perfect. It restored him to where his hair isn't impacting his appearance in a bad way. It is easy to see how many HT pics are done in ideal lighting. It is pretty much the norm in fact to see before and after pics with slightly more harsh lighting before....and results ideally styled and presented. That is not unethical much of the time. It is just patients looking at the bright side and of course doctors putting their work in the best light. It is up to us, as informed patients to look through the 1000's or results here and learn for ourselves what is really happening and not think we are getting a unicorn when what we are getting is more like a donkey. That is the value of this site to patients. The info is here if you aren't lazy and have a good eye for realty. But the overall world of HT is misleading and the next is loaded with results that are presented in the most ideal conditions by patients and doctors. Yes, a few can get intense density and amazing good as teenager results. But for most patients that is not reality, or even a goal. That usually takes 2 surgeries and doctors with a good eye for natural hairlines. But like this patent, most get rehabilitated good enough to frame their faces and no longer be guys you look at and give the impression of bald. If you think your new superpower is going to be hair....you are wrong. To HTO416. Seriously...loose the comb forward. I am telling you, your hair is pretty good now and a lot if it is in your head. And if you had a bit of a wodow's peak added and maybe a few hundred singles scattered along the outer edge of the hairline you would have some truly great results! I mean that. I can be harsh and don't sugar coat things. If this were not true....I wouldn't say it. You really are okay as it is. And would be a great look with a bit of refinement.
  10. @Aftermath Dr. Rahal didn't declare himself "The hairline King"... his patients did. But as with anything you should back up claims with proof… So below is the proof. There are thousands of examples on this form alone… I encourage you to use the search function. Here are just a few... "he's called the hairline king" https://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/topic/51249-dr-rahal-3025-grafts-fut/ "The Hairline king!!! https://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/topic/46745-dr-rahal-3185-graft-fut-nw-3-6-months-post-op/ I'm also calling you on your "lacks consistency" and "patients disappear" statement... Dr. Rahal is one of the most consistent doctors in the business...this is a fact...not up for debate. - Search the forms and you'll find thousands of happy patients... And "very few" unhappy patients... He's been doing this for 30+ years... Thousands upon thousands of procedures… I would say that's "consistent"... Wouldn't you? -Even the elite hair transplant surgeons don't bat hundred percent... A small percentage of guys… For whatever reason...will need a touch up. It's the human body… There are factors outside of their control. Don't get a hair transplant unless you can accept that fact. - What's important is… How did the doctor react?… Meaning did he do everything in his/her power to make the patient happy. Elete hair transplant surgeons at Dr. Rahal's level do just that… They have one goal really, make sure you are happy. …The above are just a couple of reasons why I chose Dr. Rahal for my hair transplant. I've been at this for a long time (20+ years)… and I see when posters like you throw little "jabs"… which aren't true… just to get patients/guys all riled up. Making sure you say in the same sentence "it's your opinion" just to cover your tracks… that's telling. There are certain doctors in the industry who are consistent… And care for their patients... few and far between in this industry sadly. Dr. Shapiro, and Dr. Wong are 2 others I have great respect for. Both are consistent and produce amazing results. These doctors are on your side...and move the industry forward. -------------------------------- @bman3082 It's great to see you back man. And awesome to see you asking questions… Sharing your experience. Sorry I had to waste my time on @Aftermath. His goal is to get guys riled up with statements like "failure" or "not consistent." He knows full well it's all BS. Reality is… You went with one of the best... ✓ consistent ✓ natural results ✓ hairline King ✓ ethical ✓ experience It's too early to judge anything... but based off what I'm seeing (40 grafts cm/2) you are right on track. 40 grafts cm/2 is a low density hair transplant... and it's going to look thin. Especially since you have dark hair/pale skin and contrast between hair and scalp is high. It's important you keep your expectations in check. Meaning don't expect a typical Rahal Hairline. You need minimum 50-60+ grafts cm/2 (depending on hair characteristics). Not that you have anything to worry about… Everything indicates (from what I'm seeing) your hair transplant will be a success… But it will look thin. Again, thin does not mean your hair transplant was a failure. It just means you received 40 grafts cm/2... And will need some creative styling to achieve the look you're after. This is just the reality. Anyone who says different is lying. ...But again...way too early to judge anything. It's a waiting game...and you are not even at the 1/2 mark...both in density and coverage. What's key here is that you went with Dr. Rahal...One of the most ethical doctors in the business. So even though 40 grafts cm/2 will look thin… And it sounds like you knew that going into it. Dr. Rahal will most likely increase the density for free… That's just who he is. Good luck and keep us posted... You have nothing to worry about.
  11. I wanted to share my recent experience with Dr Lupanzula in Brussels. I've benefited a lot from reading people's experiences and watching their surgeries mature over the years before choosing to take the plunge, and in turn I hope somebody will find mine helpful. Thank you to Dr Lupanzula and team, and I want to give a shoutout to Mickey85 and Joe-who-must-not-be-named. Both have helped me tremendously over the years when I was researching HTs and helped me with my decision. I will follow up with pictures soon. Hotel After arriving from Brussels, I took a cab to the Hotel Catalonia (didn't want to bother with public transport). I had thought the hotel's name sounded familiar, as it turns out, it is directly across the street from Dr. Bisanga's clinic (which looks a little bit like a castle). So it's nice that they regularly get HT patients. The hotel is affordable, and in a nice area. The Area The surrounding area is very picturesque, very old world, and not heavily populated. Most people speak English well, so you can get around. The main language here is French, and it's helpful to know it. But you can get by with English. Near the hotel there is a Chez Frances restaurant for breakfast, and a nice Thai place called Thai Cafe. I chilled in the area for a day before heading to the clinic. The Clinic The clinic is about a ten minute walk directly south from the Hotel Catalonia. Upon entering, I was greeted by the clinic's patient coordinator Giancarlo. Giancarlo is fluent in multiple languages. The clinic has a very modern design, very "Bauhaus", with plenty of white, and clean lines throughout. Consult We then met with Dr Lupanzula. He looked through my donor and recipient, and went over my family's history. He noted that while the area to cover was significant, I was a good candidate for a few reasons: 1) Good donor hair - coarse, wavy hair that aids in the illusion of coverage. 2) Darker skin, which reduces contrast, and 3) A good number of multi follicular units. He snipped off hairs to measure the shaft caliber. Then he shaved my head. I admittedly was not looking forward to this. But it was a good idea, not only does it save time the next morning, it puts you in the "zone" mentally for surgery. What's more, I decided that a shaved head, while not the best look, wasn't the worst one either for me, so it's good to know. Post shaving, he measured my donor density under magnification, with the parietal areas having just below 100 grafts/cm and the occipital around 110. He estimated that my donor capacity, if we harvested 30%, would be around 7,000 units, and if we harvested 40% (which would be on the border of over-harvesting), about 9,000. All in all, he considered me a good candidate. He drew a hairline, which I was fine with. I wanted a conservative hairline, but at the same time we still want to make a visual impact. The plan was to harvest and implant most of the grafts on day 1, with the hairline to follow on day 2. Day 1 Day 1 began early, since you're supposed to eat before, I grabbed some croissants from a bakery right across the corner that happened to be open at 6:30am. The Dr gave me the meds and it was time to roll. After changing into hospital scrubs, he gave me anesthetic injections in the back of the scalp. Btw, I knew anesthetic injections were the most painful part of the surgery, and it was true, I found them to be very painful, and they are required multiple times throughout the surgery as a different area is operated, either for harvesting, or implantation. Then again, they are obviously required, so there is no getting around it. Dr Lupanzula uses a a CIT handle manual punch to score grafts. He harvested grafts from the back and sides, one after another. He has a distinctive punching motion where at the end of the forward twisting motion he pushes in the tool slightly, which was noticeable. Afterwards, the grafts were plucked out. This is a weird feeling, you feel a slight popping sensation, similar to how a grape or a berry is plucked off the stem. Keep in mind, you have to stay very still during the procedure, and notify the Dr before moving. Staying still can get difficult when the parietal areas are being harvested because you are lying on your side. The team inspects the grafts under microscope and prepares them for re-implanting. Grafts are stored in ATP Hypothermosol. After harvesting we had lunch. The clinic eats lunch together in their break room, which is nice. Everybody in the clinic speaks English, so language is never a problem. Implantation Two steps to implantation, recipient site creation and placement. After anesthesia, the doctor used needles to make incisions. This is an interesting process. He moves very quickly in creating the incisions. There is a lot of power, and you can feel the fibrotic scalp being punctured. Given the speed and power, it feels powered by a machine, but it is manual. This process is actually surprisingly pleasurable. Who would think that having 2-3,000 holes poked into your scalp feels good, but it does. Patients who have been operated by the implanter pen also report the same thing. Afterwards, his team places the grafts. This last part takes time. Afterwards they had me bandaged, and I was off to the hotel at about 6pm. Afterwards, I sprayed my grafts every 15-20 minutes with saline. Day 2 This day was going to be shorter by design, as 2K grafts were harvested on Day 1 with 1K to follow. The same process followed as the day before, however we were done earlier. Then the clinic bandaged me up and I headed home. Day 1 Postop Day 1 was the first clinic hair wash. His wife, Sandra washed my scalp, spraying Betadine shampoo on both donor and recipient, and massaged the donor vigorously, and then applied an antibiotic creme to the donor. This is to be done everyday for the first 7 days (which I have done) and afterwards the recipient site should be gently massaged after applying Betadine shampoo. The clinic had a driver take me to the airport afterwards for my flight. I had originally chosen to fly immediately to avoid traveling while swollen, but I didn't experience visible swelling, in retrospect, I would have stayed in Brussels longer, just to give my grafts more time to set before moving. The flight was fine, and to note, it was not uncomfortable or painful to fly after surgery. I had a neck pillow to prevent the donor area from touching the seat rests. I wore a bandanna outside, but took it off when inside the plane, and regularly sprayed with saline. I have finished 1 week postop, and the clinic has remarked that all looks appropriate. Stats: Single: 621 Double: 1,295 Triple: 1,183 Quadruple: 261 Quintuple: 21 Sextuple: 1 Total Grafts: 3,382 2.34 hairs/graft Hair caliber: parietal/temporal: 55-60 mic., occipital: 60-70 mic. Density: 45 grafts/cm in outlined area, 40/grafts/cm behind it. Medications: Finasteride and Dutasteride alternated daily, Minoxidil Foam 1x day.
  12. Feller and Bloxham, True&Dorin and Dr. Bernstein. I wouldn’t limit your search to New York though, spend some time on the forum looking up reviews and visit the surgeon that impresses you the most.
  13. I disagree with the notion any Dr. can do any nationality well. I think for the most part this is true. But African hair and very curly hair is different. I know of one reasonably well respected surgeon in the USA who has 2 complete failures on a African American patient. Here is the reality. People with really kinky hair, the hair is flat and that is why it grows in tight curls. And because it is curled, even below the surface things are not completely straight. Because of that, in these patients it can often be much easier to transect hairs as they are harvested as they are unpredictable. I didn't read up a ton on it, but I think most experienced HT surgeons use a larger punch to harvest in these patients. In any case, it presents a challenge to the surgeon and of you are a patient with very curly hair then absolutely you have to find a Dr. who has a lot of experience with your type. And very few surgeons are going to turn them away..it's bad PR and most think they can handle it. But I wouldn't want to be someone they practice on. Outside of that, I think it doesn't matter. My guess is any patient with straight hair or relatively straight. any good DR can do any ethnicity. One more thing to note. Dark skinned patients do tend to have pigment issues. So this get's really important if you are getting beard or chest grafts. I think common sense dictates if you have dark skin and want that, go to a Dr. who has had a good deal of experience on people with your skin tone. In other words....if you are Indian and sitting in the middle of the Atlantic thinking about a beard HT. You would for sure probably be wise to fly to India to have that done, rather than Ireland or Japan. For you....I think you would be fine anywhere. But for sure you don't have anywhere near the hair loss right now to bother with a HT. Yea, see some thinning and recession. But at this stage it just looks great and normal. Not even close to something worth having surgery for. Wait a few years. Nobody notices this but you....it's not impacting your looks at all. Trust me!
  14. Hi all, Dr. Arocha wants me to address these questions and comments. While it is true that LaserCap worked for Dr. Arocha in the past, he has not worked for us going on a year. All thoughts, opinions and comments are his own, and he is not compensated. LaserCap does have a wide array of industry experience that is worth listening to. That said, LaserCap did ask some good questions in his initial comment, which Dr. Arocha addresses in a statement below: Dr. Arocha's response: Lasercap , thank you for your observations and for taking the time to comment. During my fellowship year training in hair restoration surgery, I had two main mentors. One espoused that same principle that you mentioned that the scalp could only support certain recipient site density before the graft survival was compromised. The other mentor was much more aggressive in the densities that he created. I learned from both, but developed my own techniques. While it is true that greater densities pose some risk, this can be mitigated by limiting the depth of the incisions in the site creation to prevent damage to the neurovascular bed. Hence, the graft and tissue perfusion is not compromised to any significant degree. There are many hair surgeons on this forum that can achieve nice transplanted follicular densities.
  15. Patient in mid 50s received an FUE hair transplant from Dr. Dorin for frontal restoration. This treatment consisted of 1282 follicular units of which 427 are singles, 679 doubles, and 176 threes. Result is 1.5 years post-op. Bio adjuncts Liposomal ATP spray for post-op healing and intraoperative PRP administered. Patient with likely progression to a NW 5A, fine hair, donor supply @ 5000 grafts. Propecia intiated just prior to surgery.
  16. FUE has advanced, but so has FUT/FUSS. FUE is the evolution of the old plug transplants, it is not THE advanced technique. It is not always better but can be in some situations, the same is true for strip. It takes a skilled surgeon and team for EITHER procedure. It takes research and disclosure from clinics to potential patients to educate them of the benefits vs the downfall of EITHER. I have been a part of this community and have witnessed the evolution first hand. Facts are facts..... both create scars..... neither cure balding..... both can effectively move hair and in skills hands provide a natural restoration. Neither are perfect. Simrangoyal, I am Clinical Supervisor for Dr. Jerry Cooley. I have also had the honor to be the past chair and the Forum (ISHRS publication former editor for the Assistants Corner). I have been a part of this forum since it's beginning. I am fairly knowledgeable having been in this field for 20 years, about either. Dr. Cooley does not use old techniques. We do both procedures as do many other surgeons; using the latest technology available. Sometimes what is promoted as the latest greatest but in reality is the opposite. Research is key to finding the truth.......
  17. I'm considering getting a hair transplant surgery soon, and today I went in for a consultation to the nearest recommended hair transplant specialist - Dr. Lindsey. He seemed very knowledgeable, talented and honest about what to expect. During the consultation, I mentioned that I had previously visited Dr. Glenn Charles' office for a consultation, years ago, and Dr. Lindsey replied, "Did you know, he lost his license?..." He said it was something to do with prescribing patients too much or too strong drugs for their pain. I was really surprised to hear this, because my impression of Dr Charles from years ago was that he was also very honest, and ultimately a trustworthy choice. Dr. Lindsey said this was public knowledge. I would also expect this, but after some basic google searches, I can't find anything about this, and Dr. Charles' business seems to be thriving. Does anyone have any information about this? If this is true, then well I guess it is what it is. But if it is not true, then I find it concerning that Dr. Lindsey would attack a peer like that. I'm not really sure what to make of it. Any thoughts on this?
  18. I usually post under another username but having trouble logging on and I wanted to create a new account and thread anyway for privacy reasons. Just in case you're having some deja vu with some of these photos. I had FUE surgery with Dr. Bisanga in Belgium about this time 3 months ago. Approx. 2,300 grafts to restore the temples, also reenforce and lower the hairline just slightly. Pre surgery I was about a Norwood 2.5, got on Fin when I was 22 and a NW2 so that helped stabilise things a great deal. The surgery itself was a breeze (apart from those pesky numbing shots), Dr B is a true professional in every way and I felt 100% safe in his hands. He performed the manual punching on the grafts and incisions himself, while his techs did the graft harvesting and placement under his supervision. He gave me a direct number to contact him on to send him progress photos and if any issues or concerns arise, which I find incredibly helpful. Graft Breakdown - 1 Hair - 552 2 Hair - 640 3 Hair - 856 4 Hair - 261 On a side note I did a very long trip to Belgium back and forth, and managed to do it successfully and with minimal stress, so if anyone wants tips on how to handle the long haul flights just let me know
  19. Hi. I am losing my hair and I want to get a FUE hair transplant. I have been researching this topic for 1 year. I read some negative reviews and a lot of positive reviews on dr Diep. I have seen dr Diep YouTube videos. I don’t know what is real and what is not real in terms of the comments. Is there something I should be aware of when analyzing his YouTube videos? Am I missing something? Is it too good to be true? I ask these questions because I am a true born sucker....lol. I watch magic shows and I can’t figure any of it out. I can’t tell whether pictures are photoshopped on magazines. I do not know anything about optical illusion either. So, please tell me bluntly whether I am being fooled. I am “considering” dr. Diep for my procedure. If I sound stupid please forgive me for my ignorance.
  20. It has been 19 months since my transplantation procedure. And I wanted to update my thread with the results and my experience throughout this journey of hair transplantation. I was lucky enough to have patience throughout my research and authentic people to guide me. The surgery itself was rather simple and hassle free. the post operative precautions were easy to follow and moulded according to my comfort. However, discipline was most important with regards to keeping my recipient area clean and taking the medicines at regular intervals for 7 days after the procedure. The 8th day was such a relief as it brought along my first headwash after the procedure. Can't say that I didn't feel yucky for 7 days without shampooing. So, yes, they hair shed off and I looked like a disaster for a couple of months that followed with my bald head and alien like skull shape. But gradually i begun to see hair sprouting from my head. People say that it wasn't much and that it was only the frontal zone. However, it was important for me and thus, excruciating to have to wait. Finax was a constant companion through this ordeal. I had been taking Finax from prior to the procedure. I am still on this medicine. Its a choice I consciously made. No Doctor is going to force you to take medicines. To create a fuss about it is stupid. You either take the medicine and save your pre existing hair or you don't and lose your pre existing hair eventually. There is no magical potion to stop Androgenetic Alopecia from spreading on your scalp. My diet is good and so is my appetite. Therefore, it did not matter if I skipped on multivitamins. Minoxidil is something that I did not want to use. It becomes irritating to follow it's schedule of application everyday. So like I said, it was my choice. Would my hair have been denser if I used Minoxidil? Maybe. But then again, I chose not to! My hair is better than ever. I have had 0 PRP sessions. I hardly pay attention to my hair, except for the regular Finax intake. And Finax is rather pocket friendly. I don't necessarily have to take up expensive procedures or grill the Doctor for my hair issues. Because I have none anymore. The density however, came after 12 months. It kept increasing until the 18th month. So I have no idea where experts get the confidence to say 12 months is the maximum time for the density to be gained. There is the occasional hairfall. But baldness? Nope! The hair texture has improved. It was frizzy when it started to grow but now has blended well with my other hair. I even got my hair coloured. And then coloured it back to black again. Side effects? Nope!!! I have got 40 to 50 hair per sqcm. It looks dense, voluminous and grows long and healthy. Could I have gotten a denser plantation? Yes, I could have. But would it have been really necessary? No. It would have been useless. Nobody who I haven't already told that I have had transplantation can ever make out that my hair are transplanted. I don't know the angles that the doctors have created, I don't know the design and the calculations etc. And I simply don't have the luxury to waste my time on such details. Like i said I'm not a fussy individual. I just trusted the Doctors who worked on my head. If they are genuine and if they know what they are doing then there is no reason why anybody should have to experience bad results. Most times, we force the Doctors to be commercial and resort to advertisements and marketing techniques due to our own inability to trust them. I hate doing that to the professionals. Its true, there are hell lotta quacks in the world trying to con people. But that shouldn't be the reason why Doctors should have to prove their ingenuity to skeptics. Also, our own price concerns do encourage quacks to seduce us with unbelievable packages. We want the quality but do not want to pay the price. We bid the Doctors against each other. Which I find completely sick. No genuine Doctor will purposely ruin his results. His life depends on his results. Anyway, I am posting my results though updated pictures along with this post. My pictures might seem narcissistic but they are all i have to show my results. I am also attaching a before picture to show the difference in appearance. Before In the OT for the procedure\\\ Dr. Arika Bansal Plantation going on 4 days after. Completely functional. Almost 6 months 8 months 10 months 13th month Heres to wishing every bald person a good transplant and the hands of a proper surgeon. Namaste
  21. Dr. Wesley, Dr. Bernstein and Feller and Bloxham arew worth looking in too. Also, True and Dorin are nearby as well.

    Recommended Doctors on this Site

    Guys, I understand there are concerns. I will personally reach out to Dr. Keene, but I’m surprised that many of you are questioning our integrity. If you guys saw how many doctors ask to be recommended and are rejected you’d be astounded. While yes, it is no secret the site needs revenue to exist, we pride ourselves on being transparent. Many of you are acting as if we simply collect a check and give doctors a lifetime recommendation, which is not true. The hair transplant network reserves the right to terminate a surgeons recommendation at any time. In fact, several surgeons have been removed and some have even sued because of it. As far as we are aware, recommended surgeons post regularly. However, if there are specific surgeon(s) that you guys want us to look in to please let us know. As a community, we look to our members to help us as well. This is how our community flourishes, we’re not perfect, there may be times something is missed. This isn’t intentional we may have simply missed it. So please if you guys have concerns how about you provide us the names of the surgeons so we can investigate further. At the end of the day, Me, Bill and Pat are all hair transplant patients that take pride in having a transparent and open platform where patients can exchange ideas, information and results without being silenced. But we count on the community to let us know where something has been missed. If you guys don’t feel comfortable saying it publicly send us a private message. Until then I hope you will take this response to heart and withhold further accusations until you provide us with more information. Best wishes
  23. PRE-OP, OP, IMM POST-OP, Day 2&3 Fast forward, I arrived in Istanbul on January 16th, Asmed driver picked me with clinic mini-van and drived me to the Radisson Blue Asia hotel. I was sight-seeing that day as my consultation was scheduled the next day, January 17th. In the morning, I ate breakfast and joined 4 other guys that were going to consultations that day. Many greetings to them BTW, I don't want to write their names but have to say they were really good company, from all over the globe. And yes, I was very well aware of how Asmed is doing business with multiple patients per day, and nobody forced me to jump into surgery with them. Great result from my previous surgery was a true deciding point for me. To address some other related things, it really seemed that patient number increased from 3 or 4 to 5-6 per day since my last visit in 2014, and consultation with Dr. Erdogan (at least in my personal case, but I also presumed because he already had documentation since I was his former patient) indeed wasn't that elaborate (but was informative and respectful to my wishes, and he did every inspection and planning by himself, along with medical team assigned to my case) and felt a bit rushed, but everything else was nothing short of professional and careful. I also got new patient coordinator, Suzana. As she comes from the same region as myself (one of the former Yugoslavia countries that neighbors my country) she speaks my language and communication was even faster than before, although I really didn't have any problem with their English. Many greetings to Suzana for being such a nice and pleasant coordinator and all her guidance through every part of my stay in Istanbul. I had my share of pre-operative introductions, information, planning, photos, tests (EKG and such), paperwork, haircut, laser head scanning. It was a long day. Next morning, January 18th, me and guys I've met previous day had surgeries. Mine lasted from c ca 8:30 to 15:30 I think, as I wasn't paying that much attention to time frame since I already had two previous procedures and wasn't that interested in the process. I could track the rate of extraction via tablet they presented to me occasionally or on my demand. Summary (timeline info is somewhat speculative, as I wasn't paying the due attention): 1. Extractions/graft quality control/counting – medical team, cca 2,5 hours 2. Lunch break (1/2 hour) 3. Incisions – dr. Erdogan, cca 1 hour 4. Grafts Placement – techicians/medical team via KEEP, cca 3 hours 5. PRP into my recepient and donor 6. Laser treatment post-op 7. Post-op photos and check-up from dr. Erdogan 8. Bandaging and cleaning of the head 9. Instructions about medical package use 10. Went back to the hotel for the rest (and spraying my recipient area every 2 hours) SURGERY STATS: Date of surgery: January 18th 2018 Total grafts: 2050 Hair per graft: 2.04 (Temporal 1.92 hair/graft, Parietal 2 hair/graft, Occipital 2.09 hair/graft) Hair caliber: 60 microns Singles: 411 (20%) Doubles: 1167 (56.9%) Triples: 447 (21.8%) Quadruples: 24 (1.3%) Quintuples: 1 Total hairs: 4187 Last day of my stay I went for the first wash, post-op package, and my last clinic check-up. Next day in the morning I was on a flight for Zagreb, Croatia's capital. Although I didn't use the hat in Istanbul and during the flight, I became very much self-aware once I landed in my country, and especially during the waiting time at the central bus station (very crowded place) and five hours drive to my hometown. During that last part of my voyage, I was wearing a baseball cap, which I took off from time to time to spray my recipient area and let my skin breathe for a while. Due to careful handling, I did not damage any of the grafts and there was no bleeding to account for. I was very relieved when I finally got home, as the 'real' recovery process could begin.

    I'm really frustrated with my doctor

    @AnalogFeel, Ok so what’s your deal? I keep getting complaints about you but I don’t think I know your situation. It sounds like you’re praising Dr. Keller but on the other hand, you are his patient and you haven’t experienced any growth yet? Is that true? Can you tell me when the date of your surgery is and can you post some before pictures, surgical pictures and pictures of your hair now? This would help verify/validate your posting this, especially since people are complaining about your posts, claiming that you are a troll. If you are indeed a genuine patient, I encourage you to use this topic to share your full experience and post photos. Please do not continue creating topics to discuss the same thing. Bill
  25. This 41 y/o male presented to Saratoga Hair Transplant Center 2 years ago, and had a single hair transplant session performed by Dr. Keimun Slaughter. The front 2/3rd of the scalp was filled in utilizing a total of 1583 grafts (4427 hairs). Dr. Slaughter has worked at our clinic now for three years and, after a one year unofficial fellowship with myself, was a good learner and possesses a true artistic sense with transplanting hair. I reduced my work load to half-time around 18 months ago and have no plans to retire from performing the surgery I love doing. I discussed this with Bill S at the Network and, in light of Dr. Slaughter’s goal to become “recommended” on this Network, he encouraged us to submit some of Dr. Slaughter’s results as these patients come back after a suitable amount of time passes after surgery. Dr. Slaughter is a facial-plastic surgeon and conducted his fellowship with Dr. Ed Williams in Albany, NY. He spent previous years in surgery residencies at Duke Univ. and the Univ. of North Carolina. Mike Beehner, M.D.
