    I come away from this with some confirmations - from Dr. Gho himself.

    1) Dr. Gho admits that he cannot restore full density. The degree in density restoration from his treatment is not much better than traditional FUT hair transplantation - if better at all.

    2) Regeneration realistically takes about seven years and therefore it will be several years before Dr. Gho will be able to prove regeneration in any truly significant way (non-microscopic photographic evidence).

    3) Even Dr. Gho realizes that it is not a good idea to restore a male to a Norwood I.

    4) Even Dr. Gho realizes that hair transplantation is not a good idea for patients who are younger than their 30's and less than a Norwood III.

    I gained a lot of respect for Dr. Gho with this interview.

    Yeah, so much for the holy grail in HT treatment.

    Than again, maybe Gho is just being over conservative. There are some HT drs like this, such as Bernstein.

    No form of hair transplantation will ever be "the Holy Grail" of hair restoration. Non-surgical regeneration such as Histogen (injections alone) will be the "Holy Grail" with Replicel's minimal surgical process (punch + injections) not far behind.

    However, even though 50% to 60% density restoration is not much better than traditional FUT, it is still significant.

    I should have added a fifth confirmation to my post above...

    5) Dr. Gho himself confirmed that he can achieve a better harvest from a previous FUT patient than he can from a previous FUE patient. That is a very important point for those of us who have already had a procedure - or those who are considering a procedure in the near future.

    Sure, because the donor area is much bigger thereafter than before ... sure ...

    ... and therefore he can harvest MUCH MORE HST grafts per procedure, sure.

    Wake up girlie.

    If I have to wear a concealer, it is not worth the time or aggrevation.

    Disappointed. I was expecting at least 70 or even 80% with this.

    Also I dont understand why Gho doesn't train up Doctors like:

    Ferundi and kessel

    Who are based in Europe.

    I have obviously been much more awake about this you have been. Maybe you should watch the interview again and try to stay awake this time.

    BTW, there is absolutely no need for the gross pictures.

    Then you might as well shave your head and move on with your life.

    That is not likely to ever happen with transplantation. Wait for Histogen and Replicel if that is what you need to be happy.

    At a NW2 with thick hair, not going to happen.

    I am.

    And btw histogen is no magic cure, it is only effective on hair that is thinning not slick bald scalp.

    Then why are you even here. Go out and live your life to the fullest.

    That is pure uninformed speculation that makes no sense at all and has no merit. If the treatment repairs follicles, it repairs follicles. It does not make any sense that it could not work on a slick bald head. The injections don't care if the scalp is slick bald or not. If it works, it works. You are paying too much attention to people who obviously have no clue about what they talk about and not enough attention to those few people who actually do have clue about what they are talking about. I have no idea why you are doing this - but whatever. Knock yourself out.
