My hair transplant experience with Dr Suneet Soni


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

My surgery with Dr Suneet Soni of Medispa is scheduled on 26th February 2021. I was given an estimation of 4000 grafts with combined FUT + FUE. I'll update this post with pictures soon. I'll log my hair transplant experience and regrowth journey here and I'll try to be as detailed as possible.

Hoping for the best :)

Just curious are you traveling for the surgery or do you live in India? Also how far along is your loss? 4000 is a good bit of grafts

It’s 10:30 pm here. Surgery is supposed to start at 6:00 am tomorrow. Still haven’t seen the doctor. Haven’t spoken to him once. With my apprehensions now, I think it’s better to not go ahead with the surgery in this state of mind. What a disappointing trip this has been till now

@WandererindYeah. They have woken me up at 12 30 AM and I’ve met the doctor then. Given that’s the first time I’m speaking to the doctor, I expected a thorough discussion and communicate my density and hairline expectations clear. That certainly didn’t happen. Energy levels of the doctor as well as mine are clearly super low. 


Also I’ve assumed (probably mistakenly) that at this price (by Indian standards) it would be one surgery per day. Doctor was a bit defensive when I brought up the topic of 2 surgeries. In his words “I can charge you 5x the price and do that”. But he later explained how his process is streamlined well and the surgeries are isolated well that he doesn’t need to monitor everything and the quality won’t be compromised. I found this argument convincing. 

The meeting concluded at approximately 1 AM. The meeting went in a very indifferent manner. Probably due to the hour at which this happened. Finally I’ve decided to not go ahead with the surgery after such poor interaction and a sleep deprived night (for me as well as the doctor). 


Some how people and the doctor are trying to label this as my “confusion”.  I certainly don’t agree :)

They are good enough to tell me that they’ll transfer back my advance without me specifically asking. They were also kind enough to let me stay in their accommodation when I reached on 24th night. Their manager called me in the morning today and assured that this is an exception, not a norm.
 

I’ve logged all the details from start to now to journal my whole experience here but there is no point in presenting the details now. I’ll try to not let this trip go completely waste and go see Jaipur :)

100%. Definitely an ethical doctor.

 

If it's not clear, the reason I've dropped is simple 

* Not going to risk undergoing a knife without the conviction that doctor and I have clearly discussed the procedure and expectations

At 12 30 mid night, this is not possible IMO. I'm definitely tired and half asleep. Doctor also looked very tired and the conversation is going in a manner that is not productive. 

Does that mean that the doctor is not good? Ofcourse not. I've been following his work for 4 years and still think he's one of the best. It just looked like a bad day at his office and I didn't want to risk a surgery at that point
