I have decided to no longer view Archoa pictures until the water mark is removed. Using the Archoa sign to block the face is fine, but when it is over the work it is very annoying and distracting. Can't find a good reason for it either, but to each his own.

I'm sorry you feel that way, Spanker. We have taken your comment into consideration, and will be more cognizant of where the watermark is placed in future photos. However, we cannot eliminate the watermark completely because it is our way of protecting the photos.

What are you protecting them from? Are other doctors who do not use water marks experiencing photo theft that is damaging to their business?

    • Dredd, in your case medicines were mandatory because your androgenetic alopecia was miniaturizing also the donor area (it is a condition called DUPA and is more common than people think) and dr. Pekiner told you that many times. Not only you did not take Finasteride and Minoxidil as prescribed, you even started minoxidil on and off, that is worse than not taking it at all. You said you got Finasteride driven depression after 2 weeks of usage, which looks rather unlikely. You said you got side effects from Minoxidil and even from Xpecia that is a mild Saw Palmetto supplement. Dr. Pekiner also suspects you did not follow post surgery instructions, because you always behaved like you did not care, probably you were thinking that you just had to pay the money to the surgeon and get the results without being annoyed by medicines and post operative care. But the first month after the operation is the most important one. It is like a fat man not following post operative instructions after a liposuction and starting to eat pies and donuts and lift heavy weights the day after. Surgery doesn't work this way, you must follow and trust doctor instruction and advices, it is not like "this is your money doc, now I want the problem solved". At the end we have some suspects but we don't know exactly what happened, while you look so sure it was all dr. Pekiner's failure and like 2 weeks ago you started to feel the urge to inform the whole world.   Please don't worry about this Lixin. I also invite other dr. Pekiner's future patient not to fall prey of a free shooter only interested in destroying the clinic reputation. I will start posting all the clinic good cases in this forum as well, I just need a little time. Please check all the surgeries before and after both of Dredd's operations and you will see 3 perfect frontal dense packs and 1 norwood 6 reconstruction in 2 steps.   As I specified before, this case was not treated at an extreme density of more than 50 grafts per cm2, which is often called super dense pack. It was a "classic" high density of around 50 grafts per cm2. DHI method, that is basically a marketing term coined for incisions and implantations via implanter pens, shares the same philosophy of the stick and place technique used by dr. Pekiner, that is placing the graft immediately after opening the channel. Having said that, there are many other clinics, using different techniques, like lateral slit with custom blade made incisions, or placers instead of implanters, that can achieve great density all the same.
    • More than 12 months to start growing.  Body hair supposedly has different growth cycles.  Beard hair is different, thicker and should be placed back behind the hair line. 
    • There was a Bisanga case posted recently on the forum and the results looked great (especially given the guys starting point - quite phenomenal really). I believe Keser doesnt like using beard hair etc citing it doesn't look completely natural, while the results I've seen from Lorenzo are pretty good insofar as they offer patients some kind of improvement and conceal any issues. Rare to see many examples of it though. Surgeons seem to have vastly different approaches to it. Given fin has an effect on body hair I wonder if doctors request patients to stop taking the drug? I'd also be curious to know if different body hair works better on different regions of the scalp Good thread idea @Melvin-Moderator
    • Really? Just to START growing?
    • I've had arm, leg, chest and beard and they do grow.  Some of it took more than 12 months to start growing.
