It's been 8 months since my surgery and I have no sign of regrowth. Does that mean that it didn't work or is there still time? If it didn't work can I expect money back / another transplant for free? Many thanks for any help.
Hi,I'm Joe,I'm 29, and i'm ashamed to say i'v been taken advantage by a deceptive surgeon who shall not be named ( but is a coalition member) twice! shame on me, right?, anyways,First of all I'm not blaming anyone here, just because i mentioned that he is a coalition member, does not mean i'm blaming this website, or i'm going to reveal his identity.. here is my story, i began noticing my receding hair line at 25! but did not think about surgery much, and i choose the medication instead. rogaine, Propecia, nioxen, and cold lasers which you sit underneath it for about 30 minutes 3 times a week, to prevent hair loss and it cost about $2000 for a six month period.i did that 3 times, But i did not see any results that improved my situation..so, i decided to consult a surgeon. so when i spoke to this doctor, i told him that i'm considering it and he said " it's a guarantee and after the FUE which he charged more then any doctor before him that i consulted, he said that i need about 1600 grafts. (in reality i needed about 3600) but he didn't say that, or wouldn't say it because of his business, ( it will obviously ruin the second surgery bookings) so like a moron i listened to his pretty secretary (undercover car salesmen), and book the surgery, which was on march of 2011....he perform the surgery and about 7 to eight months later around october, that's when i noticed i'm not seeing any results.., i contacted him and "BOOM" i'm gonna have to do a second surgery according to him ( we'll call him a glorified butcher) this time, 1200 grafts.., that was done..., so here i am about a year later, No results and it looks like i'm balding, I'm sad, disappointed,hurt, and i dont know what to say.., so i decied to post pictures and ask everyone if they could please be kind enough to give me an advice, on how to handle this... Question number one: am i good candidate? If i get repair surgery, will it fail again? q2: how does the repair surgery work? do they take out the grafts and add new grafts, or do they just add more grafts? i appreciate you taking the time and reading this. thanks
