Why dont doctors post more results


#1

Hair is a matter of looks. The first thing I would expect is lots of results from all the leading docs.

What stops them. The first thing I will want as a future patient is lots and lots of patient results.
Com’n docs, millions of cases and just a few 100 results? (all combined, dare I add)

And what is more only few Dr’s or clinic’s present clear photos and or videos.

Just a question can anybody meaning DR’S and clinic’s can post results at any forum or they must subscribe in a way?

You want some of the best, clearest, and differing angles of photos showing results from a doctor you have possibly ever seen? Photos taken througout entire timeline from surgery to present. Photos in BRIGHT light. Up close photos. Differing angles photos, etc?

Show me a another clinic that has photos like the one on this blog.

They pay. You should ask the forum moderators of the requirements. Very few clinics present clear photos/video results.

Yes few clinics present clear pictures and videos.
I dont like that Dr. Woods does not present any pictures, only videos.
Dr. A is probably the best example of how to present pictures and videos. He also seems to have the most results. Very dont all clinics follow his example.

Why? Cause they only post when there are good results and the truth is that there are not that many good results in HT :slight_smile:

No, that is not correct. Doctors or clinics do NOT have to pay to post their results. I encourage ANY doctor, clinic or patient to share with us their results. Anyone can post and upload their pictures in the forum.

I have also compiled the statistics of patient results going back a few years ago, you can see everything here,

Good candadites for HT do get good results which can be measured mostly in terms of the amount of coverage and density along with other factors such as graft placement,etc.

A bad candadite for a HT could view his results, and others could view his results, as not being very good and this would most likley again be measured by coverage and density, but a lack of it.

Good or bad results based on coverage and or density can be subjective based on one’s expectations based on the amount of donor hair one has and how much money and time one wants to spend on getting the most favorable results based on all the factors that contribute to a good hair transplant.

What might not be “good” results to you because, for instance, an area is still thin, may be good for the patient particulary if the patient realized beforehand that the coverage he achieved was what could be expected based on his situation.

But, you already knew all of this when you posted your opinion, but portrayed it as a fact, that “there are not that many good results in HT.”

In my case, pictures were taken and posted on my blog when my results, due to factors explained in the blog, were indeed, initially, not as optimal as I would have hoped for.

With continued perserverance I would say that I had a “good” result, and if I decide to can even make it better in the future.

Show me another clinic and or/patient photos that are comparable to mine in terms of angles, close ups, bright light, clear and obviously presented in ways for one to get the absolute most realistic and accurate portrayal as possible viewing photos only.

Personally I have not seen it.

Good pics, you must have spent a lot of time on your blog. It looks like you have very good yield.

Thank you for your comments on my blog. I think I had very good yield too.

Thanks again for your time and comments.

Do you have a story yourself?


#11

Great blog. All you need is a video, it’s always the most convincing if you have both vid and still pics.

Wassup (Cole patient) has posted dozens of good quality photos from all different angles in natural light, and with his hair both shaved and grown out. I’ve personally never seen another patient document his progress so well, and I’ve never seen a better result.

Thanks, I will add a video soon as I get time.

I’m interested in comparing my documentation of my procedures with the one you are referencing.

Can you post a link?

Thanks in advance.

Do you have any pictures of your experiences ?

If you had problems there is a chance there are those out there that can improve your situtation if you give it a chance.

One place his results are posted is right here in Hairsite’s “Hair Transplant Patient Database”:

http://www.hairsite.com/hair-transplant-doctor/dr-cole-patients.htm

Scroll down a little more than halfway and you’ll see
Wassup’s impressive transformation.
3 STRIP + 1 FUE = 6500+ grafts. 5th procedure an additional 1470 FUE.
landmark case

Hope that helps.

I echo the sentiments of many in this thread, though, and wish doctors would make more of an effort to take comprehensive before and after pictures in consistent lighting. Even the good docs usually fail at this.


#18

Some of the pictures are good and some are not.

I still say my photos and documentation are better, clearer, more detailed, etc.

I didn’t have near as many grafts as this man did and did not have obtrusive, painful, and scarred prone strip surgery, yet I still have excellent results.

My photos and story speak for themselves.

Wassup’s result is one of the best I have seen. I think he had close to 10,000 grafts done in total? I remember he went to Dr. Cole several times.


#20

His results were good, but for 10,000 grafts they should be.
