HDC MEDICAL CLINIC - STRIP STRIP is that all you do?

On your website it states that you do FUE,as well.Why not more results of FUE,or do you tell future patients they are not suitable for FUE - Come on show some NEW results of FUE,not strip all the time.

Talk the talk!

Hello BALDIE42, first of all thank you for the comments.

About your question yes you are right, in our website it states that we do FUE also, despite the fact that we perform STRIP also, it is a choice of the patient, we dont force to choose one of them instead the other one, because we do both as you said very well, this is the good thing, have the option to choose, unfortunately not every patient can afford the amount that an FUE procedure usually requires, in this scenario it is easy to understand that they continue with STRIP as we are doing a TOP class work in a regular basis, and this is a good thing!

Thank you.

All I can really say is its a shame you haven’t more FUE results,as your strip results are good.It would be nice to see more FUE results.

Yes I know strip is cheaper,but how many customers do you lose,because they want FUE,but at the same time want to see more FUE results before they even consider you to do their hair transplant.

Hello Mr Frodo, those are the pics that the patient sent me, maybe they are not professional pics but definetely they are genuine pics taken by the patient and you know what this means.

Thank you.

Before pics are all wet hair and after pics are dry. It’s like comparing apples and oranges. I am surprised Marco didn’t call you out this time cause he is normally on top of things like that.

Yes, and before the hair was shorter and after were longer, and before we took the pics and after the patient took the pics, and before he was bald and after he don´t…

Thank you all for your comments.

LOL, I sense a little bit of attidude here :slight_smile:

I think it’s good work. What does HDC stand for anyway? I always wonder and I couldn’t even find the answer on your website.

HDC has published more patient results than any other clinics in Europe. I am sure this particular case is beyond their control as the pictures were provided by the patient.

Almost all the results from the link are “strip”. Don’t get me wrong, they are all great results but these days I think there is more demand for fue. I for one will never have another strip.

This is the point I was making.

Well, I see many patients who travel abroad to get a STRIP with Hasson for example, I dont think that FUE is more fashion than STRIP, it depends like I said previously, in the meantime I dont see complains against Hasson because he do only STRIP, in fact all the results that he post are STRIP, I dont see complains…

In the case of HDC we do FUE also, but we do STRIP also and it is a choice of the patient as I said previously.

To say that “is a pity that the result was not FUE” or, “another STRIP case?, this is too much STRIP cases…”

With all the respect it seems to me a comment a bit out of place because this is what we do, it is our job and we try to do as best as we can for the future welfare of the patient.

There is a difference. Hasson only does strip. Period. It’s natural that we expect to see strp and nothing else from him. But for a clinic that claims to do both fue and strip but only posts strip results, it makes ppl wonder if the clinic advertises fue just to lure patients in and then convert them to do a strip procedure during the consultation.

This is definetely not the case, at the HDC clinic we never force any patient to choose one method instead to the other one, if you do a little research you will find some FUE cases posted by the HDC clinic, and combination surgeries using STRIP & FUE as well, I wonder if the posters here had made comments in those posts.

Escar does your clinic always tell the patient that there are two choices for hair transplant, fue and strip? I mean always always even if the patient just walks in and says he wants a strip and nothing else?

I had a strip and I am very upset the the clinic never once mentioned anything about fue. Had I known about fue during the consultation I would have never gotten a strip.

Yes, exactly, any patient who had contacted me can confirm that Im always explain to the patient both methods, in what consists each one and more details, just to inform the patient and educate, after the can make the decission but with full knowledge of the options.

The same protocol are followed by every member of the HDC team.
