» Chanyouzhe, It is important to remember that at 8 months you are right in

» growth and thickening to come.

» Typically the final result is seen 18 months out from a procedure.
» Everyone will grow at different rates so please do not get discouraged. You
» still have plenty of time.

Chanyouzhe,

I am sorry you feel the result is not to your expectation and it will be our role to ensure you reach a level inline with this expectation. It does occur on a very rare occasion that a result is not 100% perfect and in these instances we work with the patient to find a positive solution.

Since voicing your disatisfaction we have emailed you many times to start to resolve the situation, we have also asked that you remain patient for a little longer so we can assess the 12 month result and then provide you with a solution. We always stand by out patients .

Please work with me to resolve this and allow us the opportunity to offer you the result which you should expect from our work. I am doing my very best and everything in my power to provide you with a level of service that you should expect

Saying this result is not 100% perfect is kind of euphemistic don’t you think? His result isn’t even 0%, it’s actually worse than if he never got a HT at all. I know you’re just towing the company line, but sorry there’s no way to sugarcoat this one.

On a previous reply you wrote that it appeared that he did lose more hair behind the transplanted areas. You totally disregard the fact that even the transplanted areas are completely disappointing. I’d have a lot more respect for your company if you just owned up to the fact that this result is horrible.

chanyouzhe,
I feel so sorry for you and I cant even imagine how sad you must be. Your pre-operation pics werent that bad. U had still a lot of hair left which makes things even worse.
I just hope that Armani feels the same way and refunds you the huge amount you have paid for this mess.
I am not sure how much donor you have left, but you should start thinking about a repair. I know its hard to go through all this procedure once again, but in all honesty I dont think your hair will change that much anymore. Something went really wrong with your transplant…

i am sorry for that i dont update new photos because my camera has something wrong,i will update new photos every half month in future,thanks

I think this result calls for a full cash refund. It does not look like a HT with a sub-par yield, it looks like a HT with very little yield at all.

It is understandable for the clinic to want to wait until 12 months have passed for any “final” judgment. But I do not think it will be very significantly improved at 12 months from what we see right now at 9 months.

If this kind of result is “very rare” then I don’t see any reason not to pay all the money back to the dissatisfied patient. The cost of one HT is a small price to pay to protect the clinic’s reputation. And the patient has paid a price in donor hair that cannot be recovered no matter how much money he gets refunded now.

Truthtales,

I didn’t say it was the patient’s fault at all. I’m simply stating that I’m surprised that he is surprised. If you know what to expect and you do your research and you have a good doctor that explains things to you, than you shouldn’t be so shocked. IMO.

Chanyouzhe:

You need to upload the pictures, no links.

Like Pats said, everybody experiences different rates of growth. For me personally, my growth had take off after the 7 month period. That’s when I noticed my hair really starting to thicken up. Be patient and hang in there man. I’m sure everything will be ok.

Growth kicking in after 10 months?
It’s not the first Armani case I see turning out like this.

I agree with Pats 100%.

The Dr. told me very clearly that growth is different amongst everyone.

Ive seen and spoken to people who only had growth 10 months in … but it kept growing even after 16 months!!!

Wait the full stated growth cycle that the Dr states and in in the booklet and if you are still having growth problem…

THEN …

Go see the Dr to see whats going on.

The most important thing is NOT TO PANIC.

Cheers
