    This is not good. I can sympathize with the situation. Are you sure you’d want to go with same surgeon? Not sure if you can get your money back. What is crazy is ive encountered multiple cases like this by some known names via patients via private messages throughout the web. It is more common then one may think. If you do get a repair or money back, you may stop posting online. I would proceed with caution and go to a surgeon that does all aspects of surgery.

    Not trying to be harsh but that see through front gives strong impression that you are currently in recession.

    Wish you the best,it isnt a good feeling to ve a repair patient but it is what it is.

    Wish some of us can turn back time.

    That's a terrible result. I hope you get appropriate compensation

    And also another more appropriate surgery. Which seems very possible reading this thread and the veterans' comments

    Hey Everyone,

    I appreciate the comments and thought I would follow up. I am currently exploring getting a second procedure to fix this result. The two top surgeons I am looking at right now are Cooley and Shapiro. I had a consult with Cooley who is confident he can fix this.

    Here are pictures at 11 months. I'm at a bit over 1 year now and had my follow up call the other day.
    The doctor (Mcgrath) stated he is not happy with my result himself and wants to fix it free of charge.
    He stated he is not sure what happened here and why my growth is so poor, but that he wants to fix it and he rarely ever sees this.

    The Doctor was Dan Mcgrath who is a IAHRS surgeon, I thought I was in good hands with recommendations from youtube videos and the patient advisor (Steve Cook). This is the video that originally led me to call Steve and be brought down this path (David Dimuzio advertises them in all his hair transplant videos):


    Steve talked to me a lot before surgery and continually stated that Mcgrath is one of the best in the world on par with Hasson & Wong, Cooley, Shapiro, Etc.

    I declined to have a second procedure and instead asked for a refund to help pay for a procedure with another doctor to fix this. He said he wants to wait 4-6 more months to see if I get late growth, but if by then there hasn't been much improvement. He will give me a 50% refund.

    Wait another 4-6 months? And for 50%? That's fucking bullshit. By that point you will have waisted a year and a half on this poor result. Dude should be giving you a full refund asap no questions asked. I feel for you man

    Did u ask him why he thinks it may have happened? He has to at least have some ideas. If he doesn't know why it happened why would he just want to blindly go in again and perform another procedure even if it's free?

    Updated pictures at 15.5 months out that I have sent to him for refund last Friday. Still waiting to hear back. They did call me last week offering the free transplant again. No mention was made about the refund.

    I am not sure why they keep wanting to redo the transplant. Perhaps it is less costly? Regardless I am not going back and am just happy they're at least willing to do 50%. I did sign a bunch of forms that likely said we are not entitled to refund you and anything can happen etc.

    Regarding why this happened, he said it could be a number of reasons and he honestly does not know why. He stated he follow the same procedure and uses same techs everytime. They do have good reviews on Yelp and Google so not sure what happened here.

    They should give you a full refund. You paid for a cosmetic service that you clearly haven't got its them who are in breach of contract. Have you spoken with a legal council as i believe you could sue for emotional distress.
