I have seen read some negative items on Bosley and wonder if anyone has had sucessful experiences with them. Also- I recently saw a hair transplant patient whose hairline was extremely red three weeks post- procedure- is this unusual?
I encourage potential hair transplant patients to research any hair restoration surgeon or clinic they are considering. Our hair restoration discussion forum has posts by hundreds of patients going back over six years. To research past posts click on the “Find” button and then enter the name of the clinic or physician you are curious about.
Generally the national chains like Bosley or Medical Hair Restoration do not get favorable reviews on the hair loss forums. Of course, many of their patients don’t use the Internet either and typically go to these national groups after viewing their very compelling TV commercials. I expect that some of them are indeed satisfied. However, some of those who are not satisfied seem to dig a little deeper past the TV ads and find their way on to the discussion forums like ours.
In my opinion, those who do their research online will find independent hair restoration physicians and clinics who provide higher levels of service, refinement, naturalness and value those who just watch TV ads.
As for post op recovery, with today’s minimally invasive and ultra refined hair transplant techniques patients heal much faster in their recipient/hairline areas. If a patient still is extremely red three weeks post op I would suspect that their procedure was not state of the art.
