@Nebulosity Everything you mention what happened with you and your experience is spot on. I agree with you 100% as I've experience the same. The only difference is that he did not communicate through Skype with me. When I used to ask him more questions when I realize his surgery is not working, hairline way lower, and there is no density at all he just stop replying and when i push for answer he ask come for repair if you can travel with 2 months notice.
My question here is to all the other Doctors why are you allowing Bhatti and his representative to be here still? Don't you think that you should start creating a topic with Doctors with high risk of failures in this blog so future patient who come here with hope to get best results can really get the help they are looking for? The purpose of this site is to help patients get the best service and results, not to promote an unethical doctors like Darling Buds and Bhatti!
Anyway I would be posting my results in few other blogs, and sending my experience to Youtubers.
Hello @Badresults, I am also a victim of Dr Bhatti. I had a fine head of hair, and he basically ruined my scalp. My recipient area is too sparse, and my donor area is patchy. If you look at results that Dr Bhatti’s former patients post on the forum, you’ll find that most of them are failures. The only supposed successes are those posted by the doctor or one of his reps, or one-off posts that are suspiciously lacking in detail or follow up. Did he claim that your failed result was due to your previous procedure?
He refused to give me a refund. When I demanded a refund, he claimed that I had been told before the procedure that there would be no refund. That was false. No one had ever mentioned that to me.
His staff took photographs of my scap before and after the procedure. When I asked for the one of my donor area after the procedure, he claimed that there were no photos.
I asked him why he made my hairline so low. He said it wasn’t low. I asked him why the density was so low. The first time I asked, he said the density was “optimal.” Later, in a Skype call that I managed to arrange with him, he refused to talk about the density of my results. Then he claimed that he had inplanted along the hairline at up to 55 grafts per square cm, which was obviously false. I had even emailed images in which I measured the density with a translucent ruler. He wasn’t having any of it and ignored what I said. Exasperated, I asked him why the density was so low behind the hairline. He said that he did the best he could given the grafts available. Which makes you wonder why he designed my hairline so low.
Dr Bhatti claimed in a subsequent email that I had “thrusted” (his choice of word) negativity onto his clinic and his personal character. He went on to say that he would continue to support me as he does all of his patients. Since then, I’ve emailed pictures of my destroyed donor area to him to ask for his advice/support. He has not responded. Once you start telling the truth about your results, I guess he basically ghosts you.
To anyone considering a transplant with Dr Bhatti, as @Badresults said, think ten times. Everything I posted above is factual, and you can contact me if you have any questions.
Maybe shock loss wasn't the right word, since you didn't loose that much native hair around the recipient. I guess your ugly duckling phase was more pronounced with your thinning hair. You didn't have much hair before, and the short hair post HT accentuated that. But your native hair recovered and your recipient hair took to the scalp. It all looks good. I meant to say that the change/transformation looks impressive.
