I don’t expect many comments on this. But please remember I will never be a “golden boy poster child” for HT. I am a butchered repair case and probably always will be. Thank God there are docs like Dr. Umar out there that can help me try to establish a less than “freakish” existence and at least help me cope with these psychological struggles I deal with each and every day just to get my ass out of bed and go out and face the world.

Thats is aggressive temple Work.

i like it and that it’s finer BHT. I just hope you get good yield (ie all the gaps.grafts fill in nicely.

This is a very interesitng case as the temples are so prominent forward and its 100% BHT so by the 1.5 year mark we should know the final result. So please privide more photos their.

Good luck !

I totally feel what you are saying man.
You don’t owe anyone here ANY explanations.At the end of the day,if you are happy with Dr Umar’s work then that’s all that really matters. Surgery isn’t even an option for me so be very happy that you have some chance of regaining your life.
All we can do is hope that ICX has some major news for us in Sept/Oct.

I’ve never kept it a secret that I have become the world’s biggest loser. BUT, I also have never kept it a secret that if ICX announces that HM will available to the public soon, the world will see a come back like no other. Once repaired, I will return myself to my former glory. I will become even more powerful & wealthier then I was before. I was young, arrogant & dumb back then, I wasted allot of money of material positions. I had very little value for life. This time, I will spend my wealth on guys like us. I vow to personally pay for butchered patients to be repaired by hm.
All I need is to repair myself, I’ll get my old job back, 1-2 years of wheeling & dealing on the market & I will have enough cash to comfortably help people like us.
MPB, my hand will be extended to you too.
I hope I have the chance to do this.
I will be the Oscar Schindler of the hair transplant industry.

You are wrong, very wrong. We don’t need a full head of hair to have money. I was tempted to get HT about a year ago but now I want to wait and see what happens with HM. While waiting, I am making as much $$$ as I can so that when HM comes out I will be all set to have my full life back. I aint gonna wait for HM before I start making $$$, the two have nothing to do with each other.


#6

Hi MPB, I read your posts with interest and did not know your background.

there is a question that i allways want to ask guys in your situation.
With all the emotional ongoing battles that you deal with, why do you not just wear a good system?

Mr Frodo, re-read what I wrote.

Where did I say that people need hair to make money?
I speak for myself; I don’t represent anyone else here but myself.
A balding man like you cannot compare himself to an elephant man like me. I need hm so I can function as a normal human being.
You have to understand something; I did not become a loser & a recluse because I was balding. I became what I am because I was disfigured from strip surgery. I was mocked, humiliated & rejected publicly so many times that I hid from the world.
I have a plan in place, once hm is released I will get my hands on some money that will allow me to be repaired by hm immediately… I don’t want to say to much about this because it’s not something I am proud of. However, once I am repaired; all this anger, hate, shame will leave me. I will confidently be able to show my face in public again without being treated like a leper & then I will make enough money to air condition hell.
If I were just a balding man I wouldn’t be wasting my life like this.

HM is the ONLY hair restoration technique that can repair me. I am hoping ICX will make an announcement in oct/sept. Nov is my deadline for them to make an announcement because I don’t plan on going through another x-mas period all alone again.A promise that HM will be available next year is the only thing that will stop me from a date with Numbutal.

Please, Mr frodo, we are hijacking MPB’s thread. if you wish to discuss this further with me start a thread on the “Off Topic” board
Thanks.

He is already wearing a hair piece.
Marco,A toupee won’t change a thing,the problem is still there.
Wearing a toupe is like sweeping a problem under a rug.

Hello Damon,
I totally agree with what you say. I have been reading you post with interest.
Every time you talk about your situation it’s like looking in the mirror. I was not disfigured by surgery but as imbarassing as it may sound I look pretty weird without my hair. I have a thin head and a small face. I used to look fine with hair. Now that most of it it’s gone I look like a baby that is bald. I often get stared at and I was subject to many evil comments. People don’t realize how vile and mean they can be. My life is in shutter and baldness is the main cause of it. It’s not vanity. It’s the human desire to look normal that needs to be understood.

I too had a very active social life and I was even considered cute by women. Needless to say my chances are now reduced to zero. I also feel cursed and often ask myself why the best people I know are the ones that suffered the most. I know that all this may sound pathetic to many people but it’s the way I see things.

I found your post very funny and inspiring. Like you I have big plans for the future. I’m young, bright and very close to getting my second degree. I try to keep active and informed. I will shortly give a presentation to a national conference of a sardinian political party. It will be on complementary currency and mutual credit clearing system. I hope that people will not get too distracted by the way I look and really listen to what I have to say. You see dear Damon hair will not give us beauty. What we will gain is a second chance to lead a normal life and have the necessary confidence to go about our business.

A big hug and lots of respect

Piero

I’ll have to agree on this one too Damon.
I wore a farrell for a year. The most expensive one. What a disappointment!!! you can call it what you want but at the end of the day it’s a wig. People can see it. End of story.In addition to that companies like farrell are full of s##t. Thay never tell you that the front is going to worn down (frayng)and look very different in a matter of weeks. Hair stylist at farrell (UK) haven’t got a clue of what they are doing.Customer service is non existent. Repairs were appaling. Colour was always wrong. hihihi and they call it ULTRA CUSTOM!!! Do not believe what you see in the pictures. I know that they look good. It’s all smoke and mirrors.

Wearing a piece that is detectable will make your life even worse. I know that it feels good to have some hair on. I felt great the first week. Then it all went pear shaped. Unless you personally know Richard Farrell and have the system designed and ‘cut in’ by him, your ‘system’ will be detectable.

The worst thing is that once you wear a system it’s very difficult to stop. Despite being aware of its faults you’ll keep wearing it. I got to a point that I was always wearing a hat because I was aware of its detectability. What’s the point???
Spear yourself the emotional rollercoster. ‘Systems’ are not worth it.


#11

How badly did strip-surgery disfigure you?


#12

Damon, why are you so sure that HM can help you? We don’t even know how well it works. The hair loss industry is shady, these will hype anything just to make a sale, there is no guarantee that HM will work on people who have been disfigured by hair transplant. You are going to be disappointed if HM doesn’t do what you think it would do

Rebuilding the hairline of hp users is a common indicatin for hair transplantation. A missing temple point in the advent of a full hairline imparted by a HP is of the tell tale evidence of HP use.

In some individuals there just isn"t enough head donor to meet the need. I have used BHT for this purpose successfully in the past (the forum member “praying” is one instance). Mpb’s result at 5 months is consistent with our expectations given the density of the implantations. At the 9-12 month mark it would be decided if a second pass to add density would be necessary.

The strip scar has also shown some improvement as a result of BHT.

This is getting insane! Some of you are really going off the deep end! You’re talking about things that you can’t even begin to grasp. All you guys seem to think that with hair your lives will become more meaningful and full of love and joy and serenity. That it will instantly erase the pain you feel for suffering the stigma of being bald. That’s not going to happen. It will never be enough. You bitch about the fact that Farrell doesn’t TELL you the negative things about wearing a system? Of course they aren’t going to tell you. But the 1000 guys who’ve posted their negative experiences here for the last 8 years have told you. You just chose not to hear it. Same with the transplants. Not enough donor hair. So grab some chest hair. “But they didn’t tell me it wouldn’t match the hair on my head.” So you bank on something else that will lead to frustration and more “Those bastards didn’t tell me!” It’s so rote at this point that this place has become a caricature of what it was and what it was originally intended for. It’s just negativity feeding off more negativity. While there are some genuine successes thankfully, your time and effort in fantasizing about full heads of hair would probably be better spent by investing in some intensive counseling coupled with a full round of medication. And I’m not just saying that. These issues are rooted (no pun intended) so deeply in many of you that again, no matter how much hair you get, you would still want more or to look different. I’m not one who hasn’t experienced it either. I’ve been there. I understand. And Damon, you’re always posting of your plan to accumulate the money for HM. And then you always follow it up with the fact that getting this money is going to cause you a lot of sorrow and hurt feelings. Well, maybe you shouldn’t do whatever it is you’re going to do. Maybe you’re parents didn’t disown you because you were scarred by a strip-surgery. Maybe you were just a jerk to begin with? I don’t know. You guys are alright. I feel for my obsessed baldies. And I know there won’t be anyone who reads this and suddenly says “YES, that stranger on the internet is right, I’m ok with myself bald!” But sometimes after reading all your whiney posts, I feel I have to actually say something.

Bodhi

Hey, welcome back “Fittest”. What else is new? Can we see a shot of your hairline? HA!


#16

Wow,thank you for stunning me with your brilliance
There should be a law preventing morons like you from speaking let alone writing posts on the Internet.
If I had said the same things about the sacred cows in Atlanta my thread would have been deleted by now.

» Damon, why are you so sure that HM can help you?

Common sense.This is state of the art science- factual science,not barbaric strip surgery performed by sadists.

We don’t even know how
» well it works.

Yes we do, we know for FACT that the safety trials were able to grow 66 hairs/cm2 without even trying to grow hair. We have even seen the photos.
66 hairs /cm 2 is a better yield then what most clinics can provide & there is no massive trauma to the body as there is with strip surgery.

Most high profile Docs slammed hm, they claimed it would never work. Suddenly their opinions have changed. Now hm’s ability to work is no longer in question by these ‘experts’, only a release date is.
Dr Woods was slammed for FUE, now his critics are claiming to have pioneered his technique. It won’t be long before the critics of hm will claim to have pioneered that as well. People fear change, they are threatened by it.

The hair loss industry is shady, these will hype anything
» just to make a sale, there is no guarantee that HM will work on people who
» have been disfigured by hair transplant.

Yes,it is shady but comparing ICX with the hairloss industry is like comparing Mother Teresa with a x rated porn star. It’s like comparing a Pentium D processor to a Pentium 1.
There are too many positive things I can say about ICX & Dr Kemp but this is not the appropriate forum. Go to the hm forum & read the posts. There are some awesome guys there providing factual info with no financial incentives.

Change is coming.

Dr Kemp & his team are scientists with credible training & education. There work is based on factual science.
Dr Kemp has not made any shameless self-promoting comments. He is very humble & reserved. These are the sort of people to be trusted, not the loud mouth self promoters.

You are going to be disappointed
» if HM doesn’t do what you think it would do

I will only be disappointed if it doesn’t come out soon.

Please direct all other comments on this topic to the hm board.
Thanks

Just out of interest, do your sentiments relate only to those who are bald or also to those who are scared or disfigured?


#19

Mmmm… Ok dear Bodhi take it easy. I actually find it very difficult to understand why you are so upset. All I was trying to do was to give an honest account of my experience and simpathize with somebody who is having a difficult time because of MPB and badly performed HT. I hope you realize that not everybody is familiar with this forum. For instance I found out about this forum only after I bought my hair system from Farrell. If you pay attention to what I wrote you’ll quickly realize that people like me and Damon are not the self obsessed paranoid weirdos you are trying to depict in your post. We don’t need hair for easthetics reasons. We need hair to look NORMAL.

Take a good look at the vast majority of people that underwent an hair transplant in this forum. Most of them had plenty of hair, looked fine and experienced just a minor recession. Yet they felt the need to have HT or BHT performed on them. Think about that!!! Me… I’m as bald as it gets and I have been so since I was 20.

You may think I am crazy but before baldness came into my life I was pretty happy. I never aspired to perfection. I never will. Normality is my goal. If I had a big head and a masculine face I wouldn’t give a toss about MPB. I see plenty of guys who look terrific with their head shaved.

However when you realize that people can’t help but stare at you because in a way or another you look ‘different’ well… that’s when the real problems begin.

Maybe I was a bit naive to be sold on a hair system that couldn’t possibly replace my hair. I know that. The point is that when you are desperate you don’t think straight. That’s why I think it’s important to reiterate the message concerning hair systems and their inadequacy.

On a personal note I don’t think this place has become a caricature of what it was in the past. I think it still is a precious source of information for many people. I also strongly believe that sharing our experiences, thoughts, doubts, weakness and hopes is a very healthy and effective way to feel less ‘alone’.

Kind regards,
Piero

I tried a piece once…Not worth talking about it.
The people that are coming to your presentation wont care about your hair loss. The only way hair loss will affect your future is if YOU allow it to.
