…and a photographer… speaking of which, how about some pics showing the graft placement?

it seems the more results I see the more i think there is a conspiracy among these docs to present a distorted result

Hanging, you criticize every result posted, rather it is posted by the patient or the doctor.

You guys give me plenty to work with, and complain about. It is like shooting ducks with a cannon trying to find pics to talk about

are you saying the before pics are not wet or greasy?

there is a pattern of posting either

  1. shaved or very short before pics , with long hair after pics
  2. wet or greasy before pics, so as to make the hair appear thinner, then the after pics are dry fluffed up full looking hair

I can take any man, who is slightly thinning, and spray down his hair slightly with a mist, and comb it a bit and it will appear 10 times thinner

there are a lot of docs who post on the board, or people who work for them, who consistently do this.

This is deception

This post falls into category 2
Hey I am not the one posting the deceiving pics, you guys are

Hanining,

Are you seriously complaining about how people wear their hair before and after a procedfure? “1. shaved or very short before pics , with long hair after pics”

The fact is, most people who are thinning and feel bad about their hair buzz it and wear it short, and most people who have a procedure and like their new hair wear it longer and style it in different ways.

Should clinics really demand patients grow their hair out for before photos when they feel more comfortable wearing it short?? Should I force happy patients who are enjoying their hair to buzz their head for you for their after photos?

You seem to forget that these are people in these photos. People who have paid alot of money for a procedure and are not obligated in any way to have their case photographed or documented. People who have taken their time to either share their result, have photos taken of them, and publicly share their story.

I have seen you criticize patient’s, not clinics but patients who try to share their story, criticizing their attemps at documenting their story. It’s sad that you do this and it most liekly keeps others from sharing their experience.

Actually longer hair hides things better than shorter hair. That is why many results of the before are short and the afters show this great full head of hair. The before and after pics should be the exact same legnth so that consumers can compare apples to apples. This has been known for years. It is an old trick. I myself was used in a video in 1990 for MHR. They grew my hair longer to cover all the scarring on my head. This does deceive. Remember though there are many sales people from clinics that need to make a living- can not blame them.

what happens if the patient does not want to (or can’t!!) grow his hair long before the procedure and / or doesn’t want to cut his hair short just for you after the procedure???

I am just saying there is a pattern of before and after shots like this
it certainly cannot be controlled by the clinic but it sure seems suspicious

also
I notice that he failed to address the wet before pic

this can certainly be manipulated by the clinic whats up with the wet before pics? they give the guy a shampoo on the top front of his head just before hand?

Dude, this guy got over 4500 grafts (at two, three, or four hairs per graft) from arguably the best hairline/temple hair transplant surgeon in the world. What are you so surprised about?

Not that your opinion matters much to him anyway. He is, no doubt, extremely happy with the results.

ideally it would be great if the after photos could be buzzed hair just like in the before pics, but the reality is if i just got finished dropping $20k plus and my results look great with long hair, i really could give a *&^% what anybody thinks at that point.

Co-Worker: “Hey Bob, why’d you buzz all your hair sudenly?”

Bob: “oh, i needed to post pics on a hairloss forum in order to prove the clinic wasn’t trying to skam future patients because i really give a damn.”

Co-Worker: “Makes sense. See you.”

^ yea right…that’s pretty typical. :expressionless:

There is absolutely nothing to criticize or question regarding this individual’s results. The before and after pictures speak for themselves. In conjunction you can’t tell a patient who was thinning before and has had a very succesful procedure how to wear their hair. That is all done by individual choice. Amazing result!


#17

Hair looks amazing for only 4,578 grafts wow.
excellent results looks 100% natural amazing work.

amazing how you guys let the clinics skate on wet before pics, LOL

did I say the result was bad? No, I said they fudged the before pics to make them look worse than they really are by showing wet or greasy hair

if you see nothing suspicious about that, I have some land I would like to sell you

Did I say the transplant was bad work? Please re read what I said

I said they fudged the before pics by making the hair wet/greasy to make the before hair look worse

The before-after pics are deceiving, but no more than the ‘good guys’ who regularly show cropped or buzzed ‘before’ pics before unleashing their freshly washed, (and often bleached) fluffy, grown out, ‘after’ pics. This is 'run ‘o the mill’ for this industry. As for Burberry’s comment, “Hair looks amazing for only 4,578 grafts wow” wow, indeed, I hope all viewers are collectively gagging their laughter.

But, now, to the matter at hand. This guy’s hair looks way better. If he can use drugs effectively for the rest of his sexually active would-be active life, I think this is a god result, because 1) he looks good and 2) personally, I believe a lot of people think FUE just ‘doesn’t work’ and it obviously does. A pity the clinic supermarket system results in ridiculous graft quotes
