The fault lies with the good hair transplant doctors of today.
Both of the patients above got hair restoration surgery performed in recent times from doctors who, besides their medical qualification, were members of various hair restoration organizations.
In their eyes, if they went to a doctor who had the certificates and impressive memberships, they should have got better level of care then what they got.
That is expected in all other fields of medicine. So, the patients are not to blame.
The doctors that operated upon them are not to be blamed entirely too. No one told them they have to have a particular level of training or expertise. They were accepted as members of the hair organizations without formal training requirements. So, its fair on their part to assume that hair transplants do not require much expertise or training.
(Imagine being awarded membership of a paediatric/opthalmic organization without being a paediatrician/opthalmologist).
This is not entirely the fault of the organizations either. They came up at a time when there was no recognized teaching courses for hair transplant. When putting too much stress on quality of the hair transplant doctor’s skills would have meant that almost no one qualified.
A big part of the fault lies with the good hair transplant doctors of today.
A lot of time on these forums is devoted to oneupmanship.
At the same time, many among the good doctors patronize organisations that permit any doctor to become their member.
That is very sad and harmful to doctors as well as future patients.
