I Cannot Believe It !!

Went to a well known supermarket here in the UK @ approx 6:00pm on 26th August 2008 and cannot believe what I saw as I was flicking through the pages of a mens' fitness magazine;

 

Norton are members of the ISHRS and perform FUE sessions of up to 6000 grafts with the main focus of the advert portraying a model with lots of hair!

 

What a joke the Norton Advert is. I must admit a very similar Norton Advert drew me in around 2001, myself ending up with 2 relatively small HT procedures with the "Wankers"!!

 

Thanks to this Forum and its Members I am now more knowledgeable which will ultimately help me choose a competent HT Physician whom are genuine ISHRS Members.

 

I would have had a third procedure with Norton if it wasn't for this HT Forum, the Pushy Saleman told me pre-op 2nd HT that I had plenty of Donor hair for a third procedure!

 

I want to thank this forum and its members: Bill, Spex and Nervous Nelly whom are among a few!

 

I can now look at the Norton Advert and just laugh at it whereas before I joined this forum I would of been just another gullible customer waiting to be ripped off for a third time!

 

Many Thanks!!

Alright Spex Mate,

 

I haven't had a HT with Hasson and Wong to date, I would still like to meet you in a few weeks when I have some spare time, if okay with you ?

 

Would like you to take some photos so you can give me some sort of idea on what can be achieved with the good doctor himself; Dr Feller.

 

I have three HT doctors in mind:

Dr Feller

Dr Paul Shapiro

Dr Hasson

 

I plan to have a consultation with each of the above three before I commit myself to surgery!!

 

Cheers Matey!

Is there any dept that they can be reported to, as they are misleading people.

 

Abby - If only I knew who to report these incompetent "Twats" to!

Balody - Alright Mate!

 

It is a very funny advert when you are in the know about HTs and the surgeons/clinics performing them!

 

It is a well know fact that they rip people off and are not ISHRS Members, pity they can't be reported but that has been tried with no success to date.

 

How is your HT going and you having any more surgery ?

 

Had a look @ your Hair loss Weblog and bald definitely did not suit you. You're looking good at the 6 month mark hair transplant 2 and look quite a few years younger, result!

your right it is a worry that newbies who arent computer savvy might be lured in by that bs,hopefully not to many.

yeah im at 9 months now but as with many crowns mine is takin its sweet time icon_rolleyes.gifthe other bits i had done have come in nicely though.i will do some more pics at 12 months.

as for another ht who knows?im quite content at the moment but nevr say never.

have you any details/pics of your situation?you said you had 2 small proceedures but were they just too small or badly done?

also how were the scar/scars?

Hi Balody,

 

I am getting someone to take a few good quality pictures of my 2 previous HT's and Donor Scar in a couple of weeks, I will post them on here for everyone to see!

 

The Norton Clinic apparently gave me 200 grafts on the 1st procedure and 1000 grafts on the 2nd, hopefully the pictures will tell the truth!

 

The first scar was extracted in the second surgery so I now have only one scar which to me is about 2mm to 4mm in places that is scattered with hair sporodically. The Norton Clinic's attempt at Trico I guess, which is okay taking into account that they got their hands on me head but is a far cry from what top docs are producing!

 

No worries about the compliment mate, well deserved!
