The theme of the hucksters in the field of hair loss cures/solutions/treatments…etc, which today means mostly hair transplant – is that they are giving the people what they want. They insist, of course, that not only are they giving the public what it wants, but the public loves it.
Both those propositions are demonstrably false. As a glaring example of their falsity I implore you to look at the numbers of so called “repair” cases. Also, you may look at the numbers of former HT patients now hiding under hair systems instead proudly showing the natural looking hair full heads after the expensive HT. Also, you may look (if you try you can find those statements) at statements from famous HT physicians where they claim that vast majority of HT surgeons don’t know what they are doing and are producing opposite of cosmetic improvement. And what I describe as vast majority is according to some of those famous doctors as high as 99%.
If hucksters know what the people want, and are giving it to them, how does it happen that the majority of former HT patients have devastating outcomes (I won’t call them results) or if the outcome is no devastating, the satisfaction, if any, from pleasing HT result lead so brief of a life, turning into disappointment in few years down the road with the natural hair loss progressing further and exposing un natural strange looking patches of hair, like islands. Not only do the hucksters not give the public what the public wants, but the public itself does not know until it gets it.
It is false assumption that the demand creates the supply, in every case. In the world of hair loss cures/treatments/solutions……it is the supply that creates a demand. There is never a demand for anything that is not necessary ,until it comes along, many times with false and misleading advertising, with repetition and exposure over and over, and takes hold on people.
Sure, you will say, and I agree, there is good HT doctors with great track record.
But what does THAT change? I can’t judge something by the 1% ! 1% is not the rule, it is the exception of the rule.
It is downright LIE to suggest that the hucksters in the HL industry are giving the people what they want. It is equally mendacious to suggest that the public ON THE WHOLE are satisfied with what they received. If they were, they would not go to get the “repair”.
Hey you, virgin scalp, if you happen to read this, know that the “lucky” ones…those who got the repair from the ” good” doctors ,now wish they never heard about HT and never did it in the first place. Regardless of how good looking, natural, wonderful “repair” they got after all.
“Image of a natural looking head full hair “ is a debased currency, whose purchasing power decreases every year. Learn it now, before the HT you “demand”, or statistically probable, became repaired, eventually.
They say they will give you the “image” of great head full of hair.
The reality behind the “image” may be quite another thing.The worst word ever coined by advertising people is “image”.The only image that constantly,over few decades,gets polished over and over is THEIR image,every time when they feel that has become somewhat tarnished.Then barrage of publicity about the dedication,the service,the high ideals starts.Never any real attempt was made to remedy practices and reform the things that tarnished the image in the first place.
