Let’s examine this a bit closer. Earlier in this thread in your first response you touch on the growth issues with FUE with the following comment;
"Among surgeons there is no doubt that FUE grafts are giving equal regrowth than strip grafts, provided both are performed correctly. If you find this statement to be false then I urge you to visit the next ISHRS meeting and ask all reputable docs (I have already done so). "
Then in your last response to me you give us this comment;
“I am sorry pal, but unless proven otherwise I stand by what I have posted before because it is fully based on OUR experience (I can not speak of other clinics)”
So, you have no problem quoting others in the field when it serves your purpose but when I show the goods with regards to swelling you throw the “our experience” card on the table. The problem here is that no one knows if your patients have swelling like other clinics REGARDLESS of technique because none of your patients post on their own to begin with. There is no way to prove or disprove your statements. I did note however that you said your patients do not have swelling that causes “eyes shutting or eyes turning black”. You did not say that your patients do not experience swelling or bad swelling.
Bottom line is, this is just another smoke and mirrors presentation that gives our industry a bad name.
To all, regardless of what procedure you choose understand that even if your “consultant” tells you that there is no swelling use your common sense and still be prepared for it. It will not cause problems for the grafts, only for your social life for about three days.
