I just discovered this board and am in need of some serious assistance/recommendations.
I like many of you, am a victim of bad hair restoration procedures with “HORRIFIC RESULTS”.
Here’s a brief rundown of the procedures (with aprox dates) that I’ve had done.
1975 hair transplant (60) 5mm plugs
1975 hair transplant (50) 5mm plugs
1988 hair transplant 200 grafts
1988 hair lift
1989 a large area of necrosis developed on back of head caused from hair lift.
1989 scar revision done to remove necrotic area. Large area of donor hair was destroyed.
1989 2nd hair lift
1990 scalp reduction
1990 hair transplant (90) grafts. Infection at donor site results in 1" x 5" scar and another
huge large loss of donor hair.
After the last procedure in 1990, I felt it’s over, there’s nothing more that can be done. My head now has more scars than hair and no donor hair left to transplant even if I wanted too. The remaining hair on my head is thin all over (top, sides and back) and the scars and my scalp show through. After reading several of the posts on this forum, now I’m wondering if there may possibly be some hope for me. If there is, it’s obvious and a “MUST” that I chose the right doctor. This is where I need your help. It’s not practical or possible for me to travel all over the world to find this right doctor, though I am willing to do some traveling. I am located in Rochester NY. Please help me find just the right doctor for my situation. Thank you all for this great forum and for your assistance. Sincerely kingskid
