Unfortunately, we see many prospective patients who have learned the hard way that all doctors are not equal in talent or skill. More then half the patients we work on have had a prior surgery elsewhere and are now in a corrective mode. The "cheap" surgery is not really cheap. Most of these gentleman are spending their hard earned money, anywhere from $3,000 to $12,000 with the average at $6,000. They are saddened by the fact that not only did they not get a substantial result, but their donor area is now damaged. They got poor growth, hairs that grow at improper angles, large scars, and instrument marks on the top of their head.
Be careful, because you have a better chance of a poor result then a good result. There are more poor quality hair doctors then excellent ones.
