I just noticed this baloney on Dr Cole’s website:
Articles like this are intended to encourage average guys to get hair transplants (“If rich celebrities are doing it, then it must be a good idea!”). Except there is no actual evidence to show that more celebrities are getting hair transplants than they were before.
Dr Cole shows six celebrity “Before and After” photos. But one of the celebrities is Billy Bob Thornton, who wears a hairpiece. Knowing Billy Bob’s Norwood status, and knowing that he usually wears a hairpiece, look at this BEFORE/AFTER photo, and tell me it isn’t blatantly misleading:
Dr Cole also shows a photo of Jude Law, as an example of a “celebrity hair transplant”. I don’t see any evidence of a hair transplant anywhere.
By the way, here’s Jude Law from another source, in May 2015, looking same as before:
As far as the other examples, it’s basically impossible to know whether you’re looking at a hair transplant, cosmetic concealers, a hairpiece, or a combination of the above. Frank Sinatra had a hair transplant (that used to be a HT sales claim). Except they didn’t tell you that his was so bad that he had to wear a hairpiece to hide it. What does a “celebrity hair transplant” prove? Nothing!
Quote: “looks being more important than ever”. Really? Who writes this baloney? This article is clearly intended to make hair transplants seem more socially acceptable, purely for hyping up sales.
The word “doctor” is derived from Latin “docere” which means "to teach”. I believe the main reason that the hair transplant industry is so rotten and corrupt is that most of the doctors are trying to talk the patients into getting surgery, instead of trying to educate them. Patients can’t make truly “informed decisions” based on the promotional baloney that many clinics are putting out. Dr Cole’s article here is an example of this kind of pure hucksterism.
Remember when Dr Cole publicly claimed that he was going to “clean up” the industry? If Dr Cole wants to get started cleaning up the garbage, I don’t think he needs to look very far at all.
