    Default 5485 Grafts! (More than 10,620 Hairs!) Thank You Dr Wong!

    I had my hair transplant surgery with Dr Wong on May 14 and I am one happy man.

    I am a significant Norwood 6 and was praying that Dr Wong would be able to get as many hairs as possible.

    Mike Ferko picked me up at the airport and took me to the Hasson and Wong Clinic. I met Joe, Doug, Dr Hasson, and Dr Wong. All very nice guys and fun to talk to. Dr Wong is more demure and Dr Hasson is more gregarious. I think they are a good counter-balance for each other.

    Joe and Doug both made me feel comfortable when I got there.

    I would like to tell Mike Ferko "THANK YOU" for doing a great job at presenting the facts and asking ME to do my homework before choosing a clinic, and I'm glad I did.

    Mike was alot of fun to hang out with. He is a very outgoing guy, with a fantastic sense of humor, who makes you feel comfortable immediately.


    Dr Wong said I had great donor Density and average laxity except for one side. On my left side he was able to get 2.0 cm strip. In middle and right side he got 1.6 cm strips.


    Before we had a definite graft count Dr Wong went about half way back on the scalp. When we found out he got 5485 grafts he went back farther into the crown, which was a BONUS.





    Dr Wong is such a nice and humble guy you would never know what a pioneer this guy is(The creator of Lateral Slit Incision!).

    It also took Dr Wong almost 2 hours to get my donor completed. Dr Wong uses a SINGLE BLADE to extract the donor site. I urge everyone to educate themselves on what kind of blade a hair tranpslant surgeon uses for the donor extraction.


    Thank You Dr Wong!

    We checked into our hotel and we have an internet connection. I wanted to make a quick reply.


    Thanks TeeJay, Comb, and BigMac for your nice comments!


    Tsakalos,

    I plan on having at least 1 more surgery. I would like to have crown work done the second surgery and the hairline lowered slightly.


    How dense we make the crown will depend on how many grafts Dr Wong is able to extract.


    There are still Hair Transplant Surgeons using a double blade scalpel.
    That's why I urge everyone to educate themselves before choosing a Hair Transplant Dr.

    Hi Red,

    Wow! Your pictures have really given me hope. I also have a Norwood 6 pattern and I keep searching the internet for evidence of others in the same catagory who have had transplants. Too often the guys who have had really good results have lost a more minimal amount of hair than you and I so its always great to see something like this.

    I have already been in touch with Hasson and Wong because their results speak for themselves. They have done great work on guys like Jotronic and Bobman and I think you will be joining that illustrious group. Well done mate and please keep us up to date with progress as your hair grows.

    Hi Herr Piece,

    I hope my final results will come close to as good as Bobman's and Jotronic's.

    It's a long journey that's for sure.

    You definitely have to do your research and be mentally prepared before you start your journey.


    Have you had a consult with H&W yet?


    Good luck to you!

    Hi Red
    I have been in touch with Hasson and Wong via email and have sent them some photographs but that's all at this stage. I am giving a hair transplant serious consideration and looking into the best options and Hasson and Wong look the best to me.

    Please update us with photos as you progress, I am sure you will get a great result. I am particularly interested to see how you go as our level of hair loss is very similar.

    Good luck.
