Dr Rogers Medical And The Procedure

Recommended Posts

I have decided to put my faith in Dr Rogers and become a show case on this site for my hair surgery.

 

Good luck Jimmy.. I'll look forward to seeing the photographs of your session.

Jimmy has been good enough to allow his pictures to be shown. The amount of density/coverage etc will be his decision. I will take his preop, introperative and 6 month photos for all to see, including tricho scar and recipient.

I have no problem or worries in stepping up to the mark like this and will welcome constructive criticism and feedback.

I do not market myself "as best in the UK." Indeed, I aim only to offer good quality hair restoration, which stands up worldwide as a professional service, ethical and promoting the benefits of hair transplantation. I think my website does well because it is quite informative, not because I'm marketing hard. Far from it, compared to many. We don't have salesmen after all, only doctors who perform the surgery and consult each patient individually. From a business point of view, that isn't cost effective. But it is good for patients. Each doctor gets direct feedback from their patients at review time- no middlemen to form a barrier.

Incidentally, since we opened the London clinic recently, we've had a better return review rate at 6 months, compared to the Midlands clinic. I'm quite sure geography and distance does have a bearing on that. I've asked Dr Stephenson to make sure she does start taking post op photos too.

 

I certainly don't accept that the UK needs to be a backwater compared to the USA. We all agree on that.

 

Although it may seem like I'm defending myself, I am also putting across a point many HT doctors believe about purely numbers. Read journals such as the "Hair Forum International" published by the ISHRS and you will see. Dr Wong wrote in this journal about his experiences performing large graft numbers and made very logical points. However, he has also pointed out that it would be inappropriate for every clinic to do so.

My feeling is that if I can offer up to 3000 grafts, then that is appropriate for me. Undoubtedly, higher graft numbers do produce more "wow" pictures, which are easier to market.

Those clinics producing larger numbers and making sure they get post op photos, are undoubtedly ahead of us that haven't.

 

Anyway, now is a very open opportunity to follow a patient through, not preselected to be the "best of the best." Good or bad, you will all see the results. I'm looking forward to it.

Hi everyone..first time poster but have been reading for some time now..

Something that really does stand out is the number of people I notice have been butchered by Uk hair surgeons.. and yes I fell for the salesman garbage.. I even had a good friend who was a family doctor for years tell me not to have an HT..but I did.. 13 years later I now have a receding hairline along with something that looks (to quote many) a dolls head hair line... again I am repeating many when I say I wish this forum had been about all those years ago.. I do forget about the hair most of the time as I am lucky to work with a small ***** who I am sure have just got used to it now but its the strangers who suddenly start to look who freak me out.. the checkout girl etc.....

 

For some reason I dont seem to have seen my butchers name on here.. The Hair Clinic At John Bell and Coryden, Wigmore Street, London.. offered my an HT at 27 years of age and all on interest free credit....

 

Sorry I go on...

 

To get to the real nature of my post I really would like to know if there is a decent Uk surgeon ? I know I want an HT and the hope that I will look "normal" again but also would like it on my terms.. (maybe asking too much). I would rather pay more and have several small visits..

 

My wish list.. 1) to have it in the uk... 2) to not have any parts shaved..3) to have a little at a time

 

So.... is Dr Rogers the answer.. I read so much about USA surgeons..is that the only answer... everyone seems to mention Dr Fella etc but I have read a lot of good things about A Dr Cole ?

 

Guys, I know I go a bit but really need help...

Dr Rogers so can't any of your 3500 patient transplant procedures take pictures and email them to you?? <_< Obviously not.

 

Again after avoiding the question asked several times about why you do not post your pictures on different forums i can only assume you do not want to answer it.

 

Timuk, travel to the US or Canada for a HT. This will become very very clear with very little research!

 

My wish list.. 1) to have it in the uk... 2) to not have any parts shaved..3) to have a little at a time

 

So.... is Dr Rogers the answer

 

Ask the repair patients of Rogers that were at the Openhouse in London recently as i believe there were a few.

 

I was pretty shocked actually One guy that had had 3 Rogers HT's had 3 separate strip scars and he still looked bald The Rogers guys were there looking for repair work so even though he's the best Britain has, the results are not even close to the likes of Feller's work - completely different league Not that I'm anti-rogers either, I believe he really thinks he's doing a great job but the results were shocking when seen in person - at least the ones I saw in London.

 

 

Jimmy, you have not seen any Rogers patients i pressume, have seen hardly any feed back from patients, had no Rogers patients on here to give you any feedback, had the majority of people tell you to travel , seen Rogers avoid questions and make excuse after excuse about pictures etc and you are opting for surgery with him. All the best!

Also maybe all these highly motivated posters as you put it Dr Rogers on all the forums are actually just satisfied HT patients who actually are prepared to share their experiences and pictures. Are all these patients from various Dr's the "best of the best results" or just very good results consistantly.

 

I think that your inability to provide pictures after various requests concerns me. 3500 supposed successful transplants performed by you or so your google advert states yet you can only provide a small handful of average results at best here after months of requests.

 

 

As far as i am concerned i am 110% having my next surgery in the US after researching this industry for several months via all the forums.

Timuk, you've been burned by the UK butchers and you still dont get it?

There is no easy choice here. If you want a good HT (this time) you have to make sacrifices. This includes travelling and getting shaved, or do you want to spend the next 13yrs regretting it again?

Just giving it to you straight <_<

I wouldn't call travelling a sacrifice... New York is a city everybody should see and you can make a holiday out of the HT trip.

Cheers guys, thanks for the replies... guess a trip abroad is the only option...funny how even this forum and reading the postings has helped...

So, who is the best.. ?

Any advice on Dr Cole.. have visited his site and he has a clinic in Belgium (I know, there I go again about not going to far and yes I get it that the cure I need is across the Atlantic).. but after some of the ridicule I have received about my hair I guess I am just trying to avoid more attention...

 

Eeeekkk... well I suppose there is always the hope that someone invents a time machine or pref a new 100% full proof instant hair regrowth system... there I go with the wish list again..

 

Serious, cheers and this is a fantastic site...

it will not be cole performing in brussels as he trains dr up under his banner

 

i met with him for a consult and found him to be very arrogant and he gave me about 5 min of his time this did not install much confidence in me especially after recently he has been dropped from hlh which is the big us forum

 

you will find that after researching you will come across feller,hw a great deal as these are the out right best surgoens today who provide 100s pictures and have 1000 of satisfied patients posting on forums

 

i am going with feller as he is just as good as hw and is cheaper and much closer :) all the best with your research

This is an important point...

 

I find that the HLH (Hair Loss Help) and Hair Restoration Network reviews are much more reliable than any of the official standards such as ISHRS membership. ISHRS membership is gained by filling in a form and paying a fee. To be approved by the Hair Restoration Network, the clinic/doctor has to actually prove he can consistantly provide good results. And the evaluation is continuous because patients are giving constant feedback of their results - a couple of, or even one, bad result(s) and they are out of the game. The people running these forums are also strict and are always on the look out for shills.

ISHRS membership

 

This means absolutely nothing as clinics that adverstise having this title are still performing incredibly poor work day in day out. Like PB has stated anyone can apply to be a member of this <_< Norton have ISHRS Doctors.., say no more :ph34r: :ph34r:

 

If you are going to have a hair transplant then go with a Dr whos reputation and results speaks for themselves. Listen to patients who have actually had the procedure performed and who have shared their experiences throughout their journey from start to finish as these are the true heart of the industry as these are the actual patients who are telling you how they feel about their results. These are the guys who were where you were now researching years ago. I have been researching HT's for over a year now and been up and down with it constantly during that time but have finally arrived at my decision to go with DR Feller.

 

One thing for sure i would only trust a few Dr's in the world with my HT as this is a very specialised procedure that only a few Dr's in the world can actually perform effectively. The sooner you realise this then you are on the research road.

 

For starters read ALL the forums and not just this one as there are a great deal of Feller patients on here (for good reason) but all of them will tell you the same thing that research is the key. The majority of these Feller patients here did years of research hence ended up going to Feller as he is indeed one of the very best in the world, but they will all tell you to still research regardless of their decision as its up to you who you feel is the right Dr for you, but i would strongly suggest choosing one from this list.

Look essentially for satisfied patients.. There are a great deal here!

Welcome to the forum pal - sorry to hear about your previous surgery.

 

For what it's worth, I was in a similar position as you not so long ago. I didn't really want to travel to the US as I thought it would cost the earth... but, after looking into things, and making the decision that I couldn't trust a UK surgeon again, I decided to book myself in with Dr Feller.

 

So many people speak highly of Dr F, and he is relatively cheap when you consider the exchange rate. For example, Dr Rogers (who I can't comment on performance as I've not had any surgery by him) charges £4,950.00 for 2000 grafts, where as Dr Feller charges $7,300.00 for 2000 - 2500 grafts - this works out to be a total of £3,760.00 (approximately) for a greater number of grafts. So, if you were to go for this amount of grafts, then the cash you have over will supplement your flights; your hotel and some spending money!

 

Obviously, you need to decide how important it is for you. I echo the sentiments of the people on this site, who are far more knowledgeable than me on this subject, that you must research, research, research. I'm not trying to advise you to choose Dr Feller (I couldn't do that as I haven't had surgery with him yet), but I offer you this example just in case you're worried about the cost of travelling abroad - it's really not as bad as you would assume.

 

Anyway, good luck in whatever you decide pal.

wow rogers is 1200 quid more for 500 less grafts :blink: nevermind that though its about the standard of work not the price and from everything i have read and seen feller is one of the best in the world, rogers is one of the best in the uk. Their work doesn't compare from everything i have heard either so its a no brainer either way :huh:

I totally agree pal, hence why I chose Dr F (I looked into it a lot this time!) It's always good to know that there is also a financial benefit for choosing Dr Feller, and as PB has mentioned, you get to see New York City... definitely a no-brainer :)

Just wanted to say... cheers guys for all the info and answers.. so it the good old USA for me.. so whats the first step.. I see this guy called Spex posting on here and for want of a better word seems to be a Guru for "us" victims of the Uk butchers..so spex, if you read this... help..please..

 

This may sound strange but I really dont mind the idea of being bald.. maybe that is because it would be a better option than the mess that now is my head !! All I am really looking for is some sort of normal hairline that suits a 40 years old so I can keep it short.., not looking to have the hair I had when I was 18, the scars at the back dont bother me as I cant see them...when I do have the hair cut short I know it looks like steps and people think its just some 40 year old guy trying to be trendy... no I do not have a gold medalion and open neck shirt..

 

Maybe a silly question, but how many grafts for a basic hairline, 500, 1000, 1500...

 

Also, again, I dont seem to have seen my Butcher (The Hair Clinic, JB &C on here ?)

 

Only one more comment as I am sure you are all bored by now !!

 

I just wanted to add that even though I am still in the same situation with regard to my hair just reading and being able to tell people about how I feel etc has made a difference.... cheers to all

Hi Timuk and welcome aboard!!- I am more than happy to help you out in anyway i can! Best send me over some pics of your situ or put them up on here :) Alternatively the best option is for us to hook up as then i can offer more accurate advice with regards to the best way forward for you as then i will have all the info - Your situ, your goal, donor available, hairs charateristics etc - A chat 1-2-1 goes a long way espesically with a repair guy as i am sure a few guys will confirm - As it will really allow us to talk it all through with all the info :)

 

Here is a UK repair case - You are not necessarily the same as this as i haven't seen your situ and your goal sounds different but hopefully it will help a little.

Also look up AJG's pics on the recent London Openhouse topic :)

 

Maybe a silly question, but how many grafts for a basic hairline, 500, 1000, 1500...

 

Not a silly question at all mate - depending on the individuals personal goal, existing hair, donor supply, hairline position, existing density - approx 1000+ grafts for the hairline zone. This varies though from patient to patient depending on all these variables. Each individual is different ;) Being a repair patient aswell adds other variables as old school work might be better off being removed or dense packed around in order to camoflauge appropriately/effectively, this is turn might require more grafts. Remember every patient is different with different needs and goals especially repair guys.

 

 

Here is a link to a few various hairlines by Dr Feller that might help: Hairlines

 

Hope this helps!

TimUK, you should definetely meet with Spex. I met with him and he took some photo's to send to Dr F and also advised me what he thought I needed - he was pretty spot on as well!

 

Best of all, you will feel so much better having spoken to someone who understands the situation, and Spex has been there and worn the t-shirt. I think you might also be impressed by his results, or jealous if you're like me! :)

 

You also mentioned The Hair Clinic, JB &C - I've never heard of them, but if you get time, jot down your story on this forum. That way if anyone is planning to book in with them, but checks here first, then they'll have your example to save them. In a perfect world, we can stop these a**sholes from getting anymore clients!

 

Keep us informed on how it goes - all the best.
