Please Resond if You've Ever Had Work Done by Dr. Cole (Hair Transplant)

posted by bucket, 02.03.2012, 19:06

When I was 21 I got a transplant from Bosley. If I were wiser at that
I would not have done it because it used 2600 grafts, they were placed
poorly, and the yield was small. Huge mistake, I know know, reprimand

Anyway, I have scheduled a session with Dr. Cole for the end of March
repair this mistake. The main reason that attracted me to him was that
his work looked good in pictures and b) he appears to get these
with relatively few grafts. Since I'm not even 30 yet and have already
burned through 260o, conservation of grafts is a huge priority to me.

Please anybody who has had work by Dr. Cole give me their feedback. I
learned my lesson from the Bosley experience of doing my research
time. I'd really appreciate all feedback received. Thank you. I feel
an idiot for getting the one when I was 21, and I want to be smarter

My first repair session was with Dr. Cole. It didn't go well. The "plan"
was a 500 test graft session of beard hair, and he talked me into
the procedure. He was working on myself and someone else that day and
present around 20-30% of the time, his techs doing most of the work. My
result was almost undetectable 9 months, then a year later. What
me was he took scalp grafts (part of the "plan change", as the beard
was going into the scalp went into my strip scars) and those scalp
were scattered throughout a sea of plugs. It did nothing in the end.

What really bothered me though was I wasted ten grand AND precious scalp
donor, got no results, and then he talked me into buying his snake oil
shampoo and conditioner for $139.00, truly adding insult to injury.

The good news is you wont get butchered by Cole, the bad news is he is a
hair mill more interested in money than his patients. Don't complain if
your repair goes nowhere with him at the helm, I just related my own
experience, and would hate to see anyone repeat it.

I think he is a good surgeon on virgin scalps but do not recommend him

This was MY experience, yours might be different, but you had better have
GOOD plan worked out in advance that you BOTH agree on. I would NOT
recommend him for ANY repair patients based on my own personal
with him. I think someone with very minor thinning is okay but he just
didn't give a damn about any positive outcome with me in his chair, he
wanted to get the 1000 grafts planted and get paid, and thats exactly
it went down.

Hmmmm. Were you a very difficult case to begin with? I guess relative to
other cases mine is not so bad (here's a link I posted 2 years ago: Was your
situation much worse off than mine? Also, you said your first repair case.
Who was your second and did it turn out much better? Thank.

That link doesn't work for some reason, but if you type "my transplant looks fake how do I fix it" in the search bar, you should find what I was trying to link it to. That's the title of the post. From 2009.
