what you need to know (Hair Transplant)

posted by JoeTillman, Vancouver, BC Canada, 27.04.2016, 20:03

This is a great basic message. Believe little, and if in doubt, don't do anything. Balding is natural. What I like most about the initial post is that Dr. Woods used the term "could not care less" as opposed to "could care less". The former is the only way to use the term, the latter is almost always misspoken. Well done.

On to the meat, I think to say that most images are faked is giving too much credit to clinics. In my experience clinics simply don't have the understanding of the technology necessary to fake their photos. Now, making the results look as good as possible, that is another story altogether, because doctors will use the best photos and video of a patient result to share online. Everyone is guilty of this, including you, but at the same time, what else are they supposed to do? Dr. Woods is guilty of the same thing so I see this as a case of the pot calling the kettle black. Thing is, there is nothing wrong with this as patients should have enough common sense to know that the best result will be shared, not the worst. Many times they don't, and in fact, sometimes it is as if it has to be beaten into the patient's head that what they see online is not as revealing as it could be, but one does what one can.

" is more important to know how bad his results are

Unfortunately, these facts are buiried, concealed, and protected from disclosure.

you only see the good... the tip of the iceberg, but what lurks beneth is what you need to know

read the disclaimer well in advance"

I agree 100%. So the question becomes; who is going to be the first to reveal the rest of their iceberg? You? Will you be the first to step up and talk about the "buried, concealed and protected results" you've had that weren't so great or will you instead continue to point out the evils of the industry because no one else will do what you will not do yourself?

And what is it with you and these disclaimers? You've harped about this for, not years, but decades. I have yet to see a form that a patient has to sign before surgery that binds them to any legal action or prevents them from talking about their procedure BEFORE they've had a procedure. Every form I've seen, from multiple clinics, is to document that they have given full disclosure to the patient based on their state or provincial requirements. You do realize that without consent forms in North America a clinic cannot get malpractice insurance, don't you? Without malpractice insurance they cannot open their doors. I'm not saying these gag order forms don't exist, but I have yet to come across a single one and I've seen the consent forms used by many many clinics.

So yes, look at results with the understanding that the result is not the same in every situation. Walk away from a clinic if they make you sign a gag order form before you have surgery. Understand that EVERY SINGLE DOCTOR in the hair transplant industry has some pissed off and/or depressed patients because the doctor f*cked up. Let me repeat that last part; every.single. doctor. has pissed off and/or depressed patients because the doctor f*cked up. If any doctor says they don't have any f*ck ups. Walk out because they are a liar.
