Just because someone is a member of an organisation doesn't mean they are a good doctor...you don't need to pass any exams to join that association.
As for her results it's hard to say which are good as most of the pics on her website are very blurry and don't expose the hairline. 
This is why people are suspicious because we have seen excellent photos of kyle's with him being in the public eye.And it shows his result to be poor.
If her pics were better then people might forgive the Kyle result.
She should do some videos....I'd ask her to meet patients in person so you know.

The main thing for me is that she is "kosha". What is seen as an acceptable HT is largely subjective anyway. I've seen lots of photos of "good" HT surgeons' patients whose HTs don't look that good.

1. "why this forum only recommends three"  -  the forum doesn´t recommend clinics

2. "I can´t see why they are not recommended by this forum"  - the forum doesn´t recommend clinics 

3. "I would like to find an HT clinic that didn´t require that I spend £10,000 upwards" then research, if you don´t like the work of what you see or the price look for others. Why don´t you contact the clinics not here and ask them? 

4. "forum members might think I work for one of these other clinics, or am just a troll." - if you work for one you are not doing a good job and making them look bad ethically anyway, if you are not a troll you are doing a good job at sounding like one. When people start to protest without being questioned red flags fly. 

Posting lists of credentials or boards they are members of, makes you no better than all the clinics that boast about being the best and having the latest techniques, all there to just blindside what is important. If you like the results and you like the price choose a clinic and when you have it done then show off your result and help them and others by your experience.

Other than that I´m not sure what your point is if you don´t work for a clinic or not a troll or just have a gripe about life or this forum.  And this is written by a  real person that normally just sits and watches.

You make some good points.

I will contact the Liverpool clinic and probe more into the matter.

I posted all those credentials only to show (in case some people thought it) that the HT doctor wasn’t a “cowboy” or someone operating a dodgy clinic. Sometimes things like this have to be spelled out to some people who might have a “bias” towards the more established clinics or clinics that have treated them. We are all human, and as such are prone to this sort of thing.

I will contact the clinic and find out exactly what they do and what they offer. I am in no position now to even afford as little as £3000 for an HT. I only decided to have one a few weeks ago, and as I am on a very low wage and in insecure employment, and pay a high rent for my flat, it will take me a while to save up for it. And because of this, I felt embarrassed to book a consolation with the clinic and then have to tell them I can’t afford the treatment until a couple of years or so later. They might think it odd that someone so poor would be so vain as to contemplate an HT. Silly, I know, but that is how I felt.

Just for the record years ago Norton was a member of different associations ISHRS being one of them. He was also a fully qualified physician and had his own GP practice.....didn't stop him doing botched plastic surgery operations and dodgy hair transplants.
Ask to see their work in person. Proof is in the pudding as they say.

Yes, I will ask to see their work in person. The poster in the link to the other forum about the clinic said that he met with a former patient of theirs and was satisfied with their HT.

Nothing is ever certain in life, less so with cosmetic surgery, so risk-taking is part of the price you pay.

If the worst should come to the worst, and my hairline is not as I expected, I can always comb my hair forward in a fringe. This was how I combed my hair before I lost it anyway.

If I were in your shoes and your set on going to this clinic I'd contact the other member you spoke about on HTN forum who was happy....see if he's willing to meet up so you can see their work in person.
On a side note you seemed to make a big deal about there only being 3 UK clinics on here....as far as i know they only recommend 2 UK clinics on HTN (Farjo and Reddy) this doesn't bother me in the slightest, I only mentioned it because you brought it up about their being limited UK clinics on here dude.

Yes, I’ll contact the other guy who had the HT.
 
Yes, the other forum only mentions two UK HT surgeon. I get the impression from that forum that they shun all others in the UK. 

Statistically, I can’t accept that out of all the others in the UK that aren’t "approved" in that forum, that they are all “bad”.
