High-density-hair-transplants (Greece) Dr Fotis Tsounis

 

Hi all,

 

Ive been reading the forum for a few weeks, some interesting information, thank you.

 

Have any of you any experience or knowledge for the above clinic & surgeon please? Ive spoken with their representative Mal, who seems a nice chap & is from the UK, they have some good reviews online but would appreciate hearing any other from yourselves if possible?

 

Many thanks in advance, F

I would avoid at all costs. Mendelsohn has spent the last few years cleaning up his image online. There used to be pages of negative comments about him, however due to the new data protection laws I believe he has spent time getting most of it removed.

 

My own experience of him was that of a car `salesman` who told me i had the donor for 3k grafts via fue. He then showed me a video of himself having the fue procedure.

He suckered me in as I was young and naive. When I got to Greece the Dr took two strips either side of my head leaving me with massive scars and little growth.

 

Fortunately Dr Bisanga managed to improve my situation with beard fue

 

I remember Mendelsohns Doctor who he described as a `top man` every time he went to use anesthesia he said to me quote "say thank you dr" whilst the techs stood about laughing.

 

On my return I knocked on Malcolms door and he gave me some money back as basically I was not leaving, if you know what I mean.

 

The man is an utter scumbag, and not to be trusted, he hides away in Greece now

The man is best avoided, use the search function on this site go back a few years.

He has not managed to eradicate his shameful past on this forum

Thank you so much for getting back to me, apologies for my late response, I appreciate your detailed reply.

That's a big worry, that you had that terrible experience! Im glad you're in a better place now.

I feel very unsure who to trust now, although I am trying to read through this forum. Being in the uk its very expensive here, so going abroad does make sense in many ways although it would need to be somewhere recommended by the good people on here.

I have also spoken with Mrs.Damla Benibol Allen of Group Florence (Turkey) who offer a good price, but again I have read worrying reports on this.

The current query is with Farjo Hair Institutein Manchester, who have received my query, although I expect to be more expensive it is near & has good reviews.

Im so relieved you took the time to explain, I do feel uncertain about foreign procedures, have any folks on here used a Greek surgeon with success & recommendation please?

If you're interested in Greece, I would look at Dr Maras. His work is very good and he's also reasonably priced.

No worries Fahri. I think you have to really put the time in and research the procedure. There is no rush and you want to get it right first time. Brussells has some great docs, and is easy to get to from the UK flights or eurostar. You could set up a couple of consultations and spend a day there, get some real feedback.

 

Dont rush into anything and put some pictures up that may help also

 

All the best

Thank you, I appreciate that, Im finding much more as research and the taking time element is key I think as inside I have a little panic because of the hair loss/shedding, Ive since bought some more regaine to see me through in the meantime (fight the fire!).

 

I did look for all of the info on Mr Mendelsohn, and wow! Some scary stories and very unhappy/angry folks out there about work he has & hasn't done, along with yourself. It doesn't seem fair that 'bad' work is allowed, there should be a standard to adhere to, maybe thats a utopia for another time.

 

A great idea to check Brussels and go on Eurostar for the first time, my wife agrees that would be good on many levels, ticking a few boxes. Ill check on here, who folks recommend there.

I have attached some images of my head to help illustrate where we're at :) (currently not displaying, have used the & but no joy)

 

Thank you also Splitting Hairs, its good to know there are some 'good' places in Greece, the prices there do look more appealing than UK, if one can be located! Ill look for info on the chap you mention.

I had my first transplant in 2011.  My marriage was on the rocks and I was low.  I was almost bald apart from a Tin Tin tuft on the top of my head.  Wayne Rooney had just had his transplant and I thought ok why not?  Malcolm came round to my house on a hot sunny afternoon and changed my life.  An hour later I had signed up for my first FUE in Athens and that was that.  

I went over and took my two young daughters with me and I had my procedure while they played in the pool at the the hotel we stayed in.  Malcolm picked us up from the airport and looked after us the whole time.  Yes I was nervous, and yes a little sceptical when I met him but let me tell you, he is kind, gentle, sincere and caring.  He took me back to the airport after my procedure and looked after me at a time in my life when I could have very easily been abused by sharks.

Since then I have had two more procedures and the results are what you see in my photo.  My last procedure was in 2014 and I can honestly say it's been the best money I have ever spent.  Fotis (the surgeon the previous guy was slagging off) is professional and conscientious.  And although his comments during anaesthetic may have seemed inappropriate I know that he will have only been trying to relax the patient and put them at ease.  if you would like to see picture of me before my procedures then I'm happy to share.  

I was almost completely bald before I met Malcolm and my self esteem was on the floor.  I think Malcolm and Fotis are offering the most comprehensive and affordable hair restoration package there is.  Best results for your money? - yes, definitely.   I wouldn't consider going anywhere else.  Barry Goode (a very happy customer AND now friend of the legendary Mr Malcolm Mendelsohn).

 Barry, you know what they say, a picture is worth 1000 words. And honestly, your post seems like more of a promotion then a genuine experience.   But if you are genuine, I encourage you to show us pictures of your scalp before and after surgery showing multiple angles. And please do so without creating promotional links to the surgeons website. 

Best,

Bill

Have you ever been trolled on the Internet? Had someone tell a pack of lies about you, anonymously?

I have, some years ago..

All one had to do, was to enter my name into Google, and up they ‘popped’

Stuff like, ‘Don’t deal with this guy, he’s a conman’, and other similar comments.

Comments designed to attack their victims reputation, and cause damage to their business’s.

Comments, that are almost impossible to deal with. Simply because the perpetrators are invariably anonymous, hiding behind their anonymity.

What makes it even more hurtful, is that throughout my career, I have written and published numerous articles warning unsuspecting clients, of the dangers of dealing with ‘rogue’ hair transplant clinics, and the physical, and psychological damage that many of these unregistered clinics can inflict on their unsuspecting patient’s.

 Many, of which use non-medical trainees to perform surgical procedures on their unfortunate victims.

In fact, you only have to check-out the majority of my articles on LinkedIn, to understand how deeply I feel about misrepresentation and misinformation in my industry

The question is, how do you counter claims from invariably anonymous individuals, intent on causing you, and your business harm? It’s virtually impossible.

Trolls spread lies, deceit, and cause damage, and they enjoy every minute they can make someone else miserable. 

To quote another internet writers definition of trolls:

‘They may be obnoxious teens, but, more often than not, they’re seemingly “normal” adults who use internet anonymity to shed their veneer of decency and show their ugly selves. Trolls are basically cyber bullies on steroids – cowards afraid to show their face but nastier and more dedicated than garden-variety bullies. They are often fairly tech savvy, willing to dig up a comment or information from your past to distort, thereby “justifying” their actions’.

So, why, you may ask, do I find myself highlighting my past problems with trolls, after many years of being ‘troll free’?

The answer is, that someone new has risen his ugly head, only this time he’s not entirely anonymous. In fact, this guy is one of the ‘so called’ 'senior member' on one of the more reputable hair sites.

Let’s take a closer look at what he’s saying, with reference to ‘yours truly’.

My own experience of him was that of a car `salesman` who told me i had the donor for 3k grafts via fue. He then showed me a video of himself having the fue procedure.

He suckered me in as I was young and naive. When I got to Greece the Dr took two strips either side of my head leaving me with massive scars and little growth.

Firstly, he’s saying he was advised to have  F.U.E, (Follicular Unit Extraction), which is requires no strips, Is the most non-invasive procedure available, that leaves virtually no scars – only detectable on shaving the patient’s donor area to skin.

Then he says that when he got to Greece, he had two strips taken?

Well he may claim to have been young and naive, but he surely will have had enough intelligence to recognize the difference between F.U.E., and Strip surgery?

Every move our surgeon makes, is clearly explained to our patient's prior to it happening.

If he booked for F.U.E. then F.U.E., is what he will have had.

To perform F.U.T., on a patient who booked for F.U.E. would be criminal, and gross misrepresentation. So, why isn’t EJ making that claim? Because it simply didn’t happen, is the answer. 

On my return I knocked on Malcolms door and he gave me some money back as basically I was not leaving, if you know what I mean.The man is an utter scumbag, and not to be trusted, he hides away in Greece now.

Now,  presumably E.J’s  comments, are to give the impression of what a cool guy he really is. He claims to have knocked on my door and demanded, and got some of his money back?

Not so cool, when you read that he booked F.U.E, and then sat back while our doctor performed F.U.T. (Strip surgery) on him?

And why would we give him some of his money back? it takes several months for him to realise the results of his procedure? So, what reason would we have to returned part of his money? It couldn’t have been because he was unhappy with is results:

Or is he saying he demanded money back in the UK, at a later date?  I don’t think so. We ceased consulting out of the UK, after a couple of Months?

We decided it was more cost-effective to consult online with Skype, or use prospective patient’s photos to assess their needs. This way we could afford to reduce the costs to our patient’s. By cutting out the expense of my hiring consulting rooms in Harley Street, flights, hotels etc.

So, is EJ claiming he flew back to Greece to get his refund?

Again, why would we agree that, when he’s just had his procedure, and would have had no valid reason for a refund?

Now, let’s deal with the real reason that EJ would want to blacken my name, to a prospective client of ours?

Well, after slagging me off to Fahri, EJ suggested he consider Belgium? Why would he do that?

Could if be, that the doctor he recommended, Dr Bisanga, is based in Belgium?

So, I researched Dr. Bisanga in Google, and low and behold, Dr. Christian Bisanga Hair Transplant Surgeon in Brussels, Belgium  The good doctor is in indeed, based in Brussels. Surprise, Surprise!!

Now were getting to the possible reasons for all this slander. Could it  be our friend EJ, is using his position on the Hair Restoration Social Network site, as a tool to switch other peoples prospective clients to his doctor in Belgium? That, my good buddy EJ, is more than likely,  getting a commission from Dr. Bisanga?

I’ll let others members of this, be the judge of that?

I would like to add a little advice to others on this site, commenting on their own results:

Many patient’s of hair restoration, fail to consider, that when they have their hair transplanted, they will invariably continue to lose their existing hair.  That is, assuming they are not using one of the hair drugs, or low level laser therapy to maintain that existing growth, and they are still suffering mail pattern baldness.

So, when someone claims to have had little growth, it’s more than likely, their transplanted growth, will have replaced their original, ‘natural’ growth.

Finally, as I have been advised, the Hair Restoration Social Network site, is not to be used, as a platform for clinics, or those connected to clinics, as a tool to promote their businesses. I would respectfully ask this of their management.

Gentlemen,  I am writing in response to claims against my reputation, I would respectfully ask, that I am able to publish a link to a recent article. An article designed to warn anyone considering hair restoration surgery, of the misrepresentation, and misinformation circulating on the internet 

My regards,  Malcolm.

Mr Malcolm,

Ejj is an ex patient and not an employee of BHR.

We are not responsible for his posts and he has never received a penny in commission for anything he says.

We have a rich history of posting and contributing to HTN and it's a shame in your first post you are un-justly attacking us. A man with your age and experience in the industry should probably show some professional courtesy rather than making unfounded and totally erroneous statements.

We hope you solve any issue you have with Ejj but ask you keep us as a clinic out of your attacks and inaccurate language. We have zero accountability for what patients write and Ejj can give account of his experience with you of which we are not part of.

Regards.

My apologies, and, of course you are quite right. I shouldn't have involved your clinic.

However, I'm simply not going to stand back, and let the man attack me in such a way, without fighting back.

I've spent a lifetime fighting against corruption and misrepresentation within the industry, and in my book, this man is just another example of the trolls,  hiding behind their anonymity. 

Once again, you have my sincere apologies.

Mal.

Malcolm,
 
My experiences and opinions that I have posted above, are substantially in the same form as my original post and remain unchanged.
 
Just to clarify, I returned from Greece and complained to Mendelsohn re grafts numbers that he quoted for at the consultation stage, and the amount that I actually received.
 
The initial consultation, and later partial refund for the above, that Mendelsohn agreed to pay me took place at Mendelsohns apartment
Stockport UK  upon my return so obviously there was no result
 
I never heard from Mendelsohn again.
 
 
My opinion is based upon my experience and results that I had at that time, and I am perfectly entitled to share my experience and opinions as it is simply the truth.

I notice you have posted a reply to my public profile page and also your own.

In the interest of transparency I think it is also appropriate to have it here in this thread.

Please could you link to it or post here also

MALCOLM is nothing But a middle man making commission he only uses Dr tsounis and hes assistance Maria, He claims they only work from Greece and that you have to go there for surgery that is a a utter LIE as Dr Tsounis is a resident HT surgeon at the Rejunenate Clinic on Harley Street here is the link http://www.rejuvenatehairclinics.com/team/dr-fotios-tsounis/  MAL calls him over to greece once he has suckered someone in for a HT

He is listed on the website and if you go there you will see for yourself TELL ME IM WRONG MALCOLM the industry needs rid of middle men like you making a cushy living off peoples insecuritys, MALCOLM will tell you what YOU WANT TO HEAR, not WHAT YOU NEED TO HEAR

for the record i have seen good work from Dr Tsounis and do not doubt hes credibility and skill, but you dont need malcolm when you can go to him direct if thats who you wish to choose

P.S A SALESMAN SHOULD NEVER SELL A HT TO ANYONE GO TO THE DR DIRECT YOUR A DINOSAUR MALCOLM YOUR DAYS IN THIS INDUSTRY SHOULD BE LONG GONE, PEOPLE ARE LUCKY IM HERE EXPOSING PEOPLE LIKE YOU

Get your facts right. 

Dr. Tsounis hasn't worked out of the UK for the past 4 years. 

We cut out the costs of hiring facilities in Harley Street,  long time ago, and passed on the savings to our patients.

We now offer free Skype online consultations for treatment at our Athens Clinics.

We specialise with the Artas Robotic System, which is a fixture at our Athens Clinic

So, I'm telling you your wrong - Your just another troll buddy.

Hello again Troll.

Dr. Tsounis hasn't operated out of Rejuvinate clinic for the past 4 months. He only goes over by request from time to time. 

He's resident in Greece and his main clinic is in Greece, where the Artas Sytem is.

Nobody can match the prices we quote, particularly in the UK. So, as I say, get your facts rights and go troll somebody else.
