Recommended Posts

hi guys im 25 started going bald at 17/18 was awful so hard

being the only guy that was bald in my group of mates. at the age of 19 i had my 1st
hair transplant in paris and over the next 4months i underwent scalp reduction and a further 4 transplants the result was not good these were all carried out by the same surgen that promised me the world. i then had a further 2 transplants with a dr in manchester and all i can say bout him is he should not be alowed near a human left with awful scar and fine hair on my scalp and where the scalp reduction was done its starting to recide away :(  after 32grand im still using toppik just to stop scalp being noticable , i cant do anything with it part frm brush it forward :(

Hey Phil87,  


You sound like you have bad a run of really bad luck, as well as running into unscrupulous practitioners who make their money by preying on your insecurities.  I can understand how you might be apprehensive about the treatment given your bad experiences, you're probably thinking that the results just sound too good to be true, and the diaries are stand-ins, photoshopped or stooges.

All I can say to you is that I've personally had the treatment, and it's given me a new lease of life.  I am a norwood 7, but if you looked at me, you'd be hard pressed to tell.  The treatment is very convincing, and is the closest thing available to having a full head of hair.

If you still have doubts, no idea where you are in the country, but you could always try to meet up with someone who has had the treatment, or pop into a HIS clinic, as most of the time there is a practitioner there who has had the treatment himself.

Seems like the perfect solution for you... you still have a lot on top, so it will help give it the appearance of depth.  Even though the HT didnt get you where you wanted overall, it will actually help to improve this treatment... so it isn't all a waste.

 Hope it works out for you!

Phil, hope you get it sorted mate, with the amount of hair you have MHT will really suit you.

Incidentally who was the Dr in Manchester that did that to you?

Cheer up Phil - at least you know that there is a solution now and you are still really young so the sh_t you have been through will have been just a blip in your life helping making you a stronger person . I like you have lost a fortune on transplants - if you had been doing other things like getting married you could now be getting divorced and losing more than k32 .
In a years time you could be in a far better place so cheer up and start planning the future .

I'm a bit busy now, i'll do it around 10 tonight, (I don't want you waiting around the forum for me)
Let me know who (Case Picture or a good picture) you like.

I took Richards case study and ripped his head off (photoshop people!)
If you want me to rip someone else's head off make sure its a good front picture and they are not looking down.

Maybe a good clear picture of yourself would help.
