    Update :
    Today I had another phone call from the clinic manager, she told me she had contacted my surgeon who she said had been advised to not contact me at all, when I asked why she said it was because I had asked for a large and unethical amount of money as settlement for my HT. I was very confused because I have never asked for a large sum of money, only the money back which I paid for my HT. Everyone who has followed my story knows that I have only ever asked for a refund for my failed HT. When I told the clinic manager this she was also very confused to why my surgeon would of come to this conclusion and said she would relay this new information to him.

    I can't imagine my surgeon would of forgotten already our last conversation when he agreed to a refund and said he would contact the clinic to arrange my refund, or maybe he has me confused with someone else.
    I wouldn't like to think that my surgeon wants me to go through all the stress of going to court over my refund.

    But if this is true then it is truly unbelievable. I am waiting to see what happens this week when the clinic manager contacts him again. This really is so stressful, it feels like they are playing games with me.

    I will post another update later this week.

    Alan.

    Dude,
    they are playing games with you. From the very start and from here on out, they are looking at this in terms of law suits and cash. This is how a great portion of this industry works. This is how most industries work. I don't know ALL the details of your case, however, it sounds strikingly similar to my own and the many other people I have conversed with that have been through this. In these cases, the intentions were never surrounding the patients well being. I cannot give you any legal advice. I can tell you, once again, that IF they lured you in with certain promises and neglected to tell you ALL the potential outcomes and complications that come along with such an intricate surgery, then they are by definition unethical in practice. IF this clinic has been unethical to you, then they will be unethical to the next 20 year old who walks in there and doesn't know the first thing about HT surgery. The poor bastard will come in thinking he is going to regain confidence and after they butcher him, he might just spend his 20's living in constant anxiety, fear and depression. I am so passionate about this, because it happened to me and I have read absolute HORROR stories about it happening to other, GOOD people. It's sick. It's evil, and because they are so lawyered up they think they are untouchable. ONCE AGAIN - This paragraph is riddled with the word, "IF" because I do not know you're full case, only you do... The end point being IF they treated you unethically - you have a RESPONSIBILITY to tell the world. In doing so, you never have to reveal your real name or identity, just your story and pics.

    Hello to all fellow TBT members, first of all I would like to apologise for the lack of updates on my on going situation and battle with my HT surgeon to get justice and a refund for my failed HT. The last 3 to 4 week had got very intense,
    with my surgeon and the clinic. I had been in contact with the clinic several times and each time I had been given different answers concnering my hopes for a full refund. I had been accused by my surgeon for asking for
    an unethical amount of money for settlement for my failed HT which was completely untrue, which is evident when reading through my story and this thread that all I wanted was a refund.

    There was a period of about 4 weeks where the Clinic seemed to be giving me the run around, and in the end it all got a bit to much for me. I have suffered from depression and anxiety in the past after my HT and it seemed my past was coming back to haunt me again.
    After going to see my counsellor, she suggested I should try and get away and visit some family or friends and forget about everything for a few weeks, so I went to stay with my cousins in Wales. The break away helped me a great deal and helped to clear my mind.
    The clinic and my surgeon are well aware that I suffer from anxiety and depression after my HT, and I think they may of been hoping this might happen to me, that it might get to much for me and like Dave52 said a few posts back, they are hoping I will just go away.
    Well I have got news for them, I am not going away, I will be around to fight until I get what I think is right or the very least my money back for what they have put me through.

    The latest news I have is a phone call from the clinic manager just before I went away, they told me the surgeon is back in the surgeory on March 5th and they would get back to me then. So that is my deadline the 5th of March.
    Thank you everybody that has supported me through out my ordeal and I promise to keep everybody updated not matter what the outcome.

    Alan.

    Good for you Alan .

    They are playing games so you just need to play along .

    Are you still receiving legal advice ? Quick question for you - Is your contract with the clinic or the surgeon ?

    Hello Suarez, my contract seems to be with my surgeon, but at the same time the clinic does advertise FUE hair transplants on thier website as a speciality they do, and says results 100% guranteed.

    I have taken legal advice, and the London based solicitor firm I talked to said they were familiar with my surgeon when I mentioned his name, what this means I don't know, of course they could not talk about any other cases if they were in any way connected.

    We are all waiting until the 5th of March to see what happens.

    Alan.

    FUE treatment has very low success rate and it depends hugely on how your body adopts to it. But my experience with hair transplant or treatment services has not been so great.

    I too was 24 when I started losing my hair. I am more worried about the density of my hair :/
