Obviously I can't verify the vacations and such that @California said, but everything else I felt first hand. I did enjoy speaking with his staff and making my jokes. I had to be told to not smile, because I may risk grafts. 🙃
I felt very comfortable and taken care of. As far as value, I got incredible value from Dr. Bhatti. Between the correspondence, his own taxi(s!) that shuttled me my entire time in Chandigarh (even taking me to a strip mall for a button down shirt I needed to buy because I didn't pack), the post op care and ensuring I had my paperwork for medicines and altered-appearence handled before I left.
All of this for a clear price. It was in INR, so my only fluctuations we're in my USD. The only variance in price was the final determination of hairline you agree on.
When I picked my hairline, (as I mentioned in my writeups) Dr Bhatti treated me like he may see me for life. He genuinely cared and encouraged me to think my hairline over. He gave his professional opinion on what was natural (one side always "recedes"), and what hairline suits my face (his measuring of the face).
I chose Dr. Bhatti after doing my research. I had no reservations. The experience went even smoother than I could have imagined.
totally confused after finding out u can't just go to any prp clinic just cuz the low price. apparently quality of and procedure varies from clinic to clinic. is this true ?
isnitnworth paying more as much as doublenper session ? will results differ
some even offer a one time treatment much costlier that doesn't require a return for at lesson 12 to 18mitnhs,,,
if anyone who's done prp plz advise me thank u! especially the Toronto area...
I saw this post by Dr Blake about cheap hair clinics that seems relavant (about you looking at more than 2500 grafts)(also, he is a proponent of a patient's first HT being a FUT, with follow on FUE, just FYI):
Something else patients MUST remember too -- and I do not think I saw it mentioned here previously: remember that the donor area is a very finite resource. You are only gifted with a certain number of scalp grafts in the donor area and once they are gone, you're done. One big FUE pass from a tech clinic and you can wipe out the entire donor. I have seen it with my own two eyes multiple times. And let me tell you, it is awful having to tell these patients who are there for repair that there is nothing you can do aside from removing grafts and referring to a good SMP practice (shout out to Erik at Ahead Ink!) because the "bank" is empty.
I agree that although techs may be good, I want the precision work done by the doc. I think follicle extraction and hairline incisions are the most important "artistry" of the procedure. I despite good ratings and whatnot (regardless of clinic), I'd be a little nervous when a doc is spread too thin. I understand sometimes/some days there may be multiple <1000 graft sessions, but a doc that regularly does 4+ HT sessions a day would give me some pause. I get burned out with my jobs, I'm sure they're human too.
I think 2500 grafts would be enough for a bit-more-than conservative HT for you (hairline of someone under 40 - I think "conservative" hairline is a 50+ year old's hairline). It was for me, and I had a similar pattern, with the widow's peak. For transparency, there is a bit of risk with hair density with my procedure, but there is some donor remaining to address my crown when I eventually lose it. If you do more than 3000 grafts, you may be throwing too much of your resource at a problem. This is a single humble opinion.
So finally the D-day has come. I am on my way for my surgery with Dr Pradeep Sethi at eugenix. I have finalised dr Pradeep Sethi after many years of research and i just felt results he has produced so far is outstanding. I just hope and pray my result turns out to be good too. It’s too early to speak about his involvement in surgery but I will provide my honest feedback after my surgery. I am staying at Eugenix in house staying facilities my pick up has been taken care of by eugenix too. So far Dr Pradeep Sethis team has been excellent and I hope it stays same throughout my trip.
i am excited but nervous I took almost 15 years to finalise my surgeon. I took long because I feel this is the life changing decision. I have seen many bad transplant in my research where doctor has given weird reason why results turned out bad rather then accepting it’s his fault. When I spoke to dr Pradeep Sethi first time he was ready to take responsibility of his work. He had given me list of patients and I have contacted few of them and the common thing was all of them was happy with their results.My decision to go to dr Pradeep Sethi was purely based on my research and analysis I did in past 2 years. Even though he only got recommended here 6 months ago. I was following his work on YouTube and on his website.
Stay tuned for post op pics. Hopefully it will be on Thursday night.
Thanks for following my thread.
