im 4 weeks out from surgery.after doing 2 years of research i chose dr.greg pistone of marlton nj.i had a little over 2200 grafts transplanted.i cant speak on results much to early but as far as the procedure dr.pistone and his staff are informative,polite,and there for u 24hrs no matter how many questions.the procedure was pain free and the scar is no bigger than a pencil line.dr.pistone takes as many grafts as possible without stretching your skin for one flat rate.to me this technique makes sense thats why i chose him every other doctor charges by graft.i am shedding alot of hair from shock loss but i know its normal.i went one shade lighter on the toppik and it seems to do the job.i will post pics when i get a chance.to anyone considering a hair transplant remember if u have n average or less than average donor area ur wasting ur time n money.hope this helps.also dr pistone uses staples not sutures remember staples leave less of a scar then sutures.

thanks for sharing, question how do u know if u have an average or low donor density without going to a ht surgeon to have it checked?

if ur donor area is thin or showing any scalp at all ur wasting ur time.i went to over 5 surgeons for a consultation and to be honest with u dr pistone was the only one that i no for a fact is honest because the person who went b4 me came out n told me that dr pistone said he was not a good candidate.honesty goes a long way in my book.true & dorin charged me $85 for a consultation thats just plain greed in my eyes all he did was look at my hair with a comb and give me a green booklet.dr.pistone consult is free and talk 2 me for over 45 minutes.my advice 2 u is if ur not sure about ur donor area go 2 dr pistone the most it will cost u is time.

Hey Mike,

Glad to hear things are going well 4 you after the surgery with Dr. Pistone. I'm going to schedule HT # 2 (last one) with Dr. Pistone shortly to fill in the crown area and couldn't be happier with the results from HT # 1. Send pics by email when the hair starts growing! All the best.
