Until I see the full article, there is little to comment.
Just one thing: according to the excerpt, Gho says that, basically, yield is 100% in BOTH the donor and recipient site. So, according to this study, all the transplanted hairs survive, and all of the donor hairs, regenerate. So, this would be a FUE, with absolutely no loss of donor hair.
So, Gho claims he is able to produce, say, 10.000 new hairs for the receptor area, while letting the donor area totally unaffected.
Where are the photos of full restauration? And why Gho himself is balding?
And these claims are against experience reported by bverotti from ProHairClinic in Belgium. Bverotti says that he receives Gho’s patients, and every time he sees white dots in the donor area without any sign of regeneration. He says that it looks like normal FUE. And he says that this is so, even with new Gho’s technique (HST).
If bverotti is lying, and he is inventing everything to discredit Gho, that would mean that Bverotti is a terrible evil man. It would be so evil, that it would be difficult for me to conceive. The problem is that other doctors have also said the same as bverotti. In Belgium and Holland, about 10 clinics have signed a joint warning message against Gho. After Gho threatened them with lawyers, only a few backpedaled. Are all of them “terrible evils”? Just imagine: Gho is a legit doctor, a pioneer, he has invented something new, all the other doctors know that Gho is correct, but they are so evil that invent lies to discredit him!! Do you think this is credible? Gho has a small clinic, and represents little competition to other HT doctors. It is ridiculous to think that all the HT doctors would organize a conspiration against Gho if he was legit.
It is curious, that Gho says that 100% recipient-site hairs survive after 1 year, and 100% donor hairs survive at 3 months, but he doesn’t say if these donor hairs survive at 1 year. If Gho has not evaluated the donor regeneration long term, then this study is of little value.
You say that after 10 months, donor hairs remodel themselves and are totally recovered (Dr. Kim study). I would like to see if this is the case for Gho’s technique.
» Years ago, I posted an independent study of Dr. Gho’s old FM technique
» that showed 70% of the donor hairs regrow if transected in the skin.
» However, in my interview with Dr. Gho, he stated the regrowth was greatly
» improved with his newer longitudinal transection technique.
» Despite recipient growth being the most difficult aspect to figure out,
» Gho’s recipient growth has always been on par with HT, because he soaks the
» transected grafts in HM culture medium (essentially the same stuff Histogen
» injects to rejuvinate balding follicles).
» As shown by the independent study, the donor regrowth is not a problem.
» The difficult part of this technique is to get the recipient follicles to
» regenerate and grow hair. Dr. Gho has figured it out, and he has been
» treating an increasing number of Dutch celebrities.
» One thing to keep in mind is the co-author of this study is a professor at
» a prestigious Dutch university and is one of the most well-respected
» dermatologists in the world as well as one of the most published
» This is a prestigious peer-reviewed journal. Gho’s co-author would not
» publish fake data in this journal. The claimed hair counts are accurate.
» Anybody who is currently enrolled in college has access to this article
» through their library’s online subscription service. There must be at least
» one person at this site who is currently enrolled in school and can give us
» the details? The most important thing here is the statistical details so we
» can get an idea of the consistency achievable. From the abstract, it
» appears Gho has managed to get nearly perfect consistency in the donor and
» recipient sites.
» BTW, the rejuvinated donor hairs last forever, but it takes about a year
» for them to fully reform into fully functional hair follicles (as shown in
» Dr. Kim’s study). For this reason, you should not take donor follicles from
» the same area for at least 10 months.
» The only thing that has really been holding the procedure back is Gho’s
» placement technique. However, the latest results I’ve seen appear to
» indicate he’s resolved this issue as well.
» Perhaps this thing has finally come of age.
