After having the opportunity to see a full powerpoint and video presentation, and having an in-depth discussion with Dr. Carlos Wesley about his new scarless follicular unit extraction technique (Pilofocus), Spencer seems convinced that what was presented to him might just change the hair transplant field forever and give hair loss sufferers even greater opportunity to be successfully surgically treated without the telltale signs of conventional surgical methods.

This is a show you don’t want to miss!

This reminds me of the interview three years ago with the Dr who was using acell and `plucked` hair. I wonder what happened to those techniques?

Great point ejj. Always a new fad that is overhyped at the expense of vunerable and insecure hairloss sufferers. Scarless fue? It certainly wont remedy the missing follicles which are the real telltale signs of surgery....

I’m a fairly firm believer in if you are going to recommend something or give advice show me your own result or how what you are recommending has affected your life in a positive way. Of course like many others this is something I have learned the hard way. Personally I have grown to have this attitude when put into a position where I feel someone is trying to sell me too hard on something regardless of what it is merely with words or impress me with their expertise that I might be doubting than I let them know exactly what I think and I don’t pull any punches and if they have a good answer to my comment than fine but normally there is only silence and then I know and I know they know I know……lol……..

Anyway why create all this buzz which has been almost 1 year now? What’s the point of creating all this anticipation? Why all this amazement with something so simple why didn’t anyone else think of it? Oh my I wonder what it could be? Why am I left just to wonder and maybe doubt what I’m doing as this could possibly be better?

Why not just show your result when you have one or show your revolutionary technique when it’s actually available with some actual proof is that really asking too much? Why all this nonsense? No different than some patients that go on and on posting to the forums but when it comes time to post the result with some pictures well all of a sudden their busy, please is one really supposed to believe that?

Let's not forget Dr. Bazan and his revolutionary solution that grew hair and was 20,000 an ounce pre-order that never came to fruition. (remember that one Topcat?) Oh and Dr. Gho had some revolutionary techniques coring the center of fue grafts.

Every few years we here of these ideas.

LOL………….HT yes I remember him very well even spoke to a few of his patients as they became repair cases and couldn’t believe what I was hearing. If it wasn’t so sad it was actually laughable. He was asking guys if they wanted just the regular fue or the one with hair multiplication and were are talking at least 10 years ago. Guess what the guys went for the HM from a guy that didn’t even have skills at fue……..how can you not laugh at that gimmick. I wrote about that so long ago as others have including yourself. It’s like back in the 70’s when the newer car washes would offer the customers the HOT CARNUBA WAX for free………….hell yeah I’m going there for the free wax………lol……….it becomes ridiculous at some point. It’s like the boy who cried wolf only thing different is that the boy moves from town to town so the gimmick keeps working same here you have a new batch of young lambs that love to hear the story about the wolf, their ears perks up right away, please tell us more. Oh we have to wait for the next chapter.

Last I heard Bazan was in a Mexican jail hopefully he rots there, another industry scumbag.

How would you have liked to be the guy in the chair when this happened..........lol........but really not very funny. And what was this guy's big claim to fame. He was injecting stuff into guys heads saying it causes hair to multiply, now where have I seen that before.........

Fake surgeon falls
He is a general practitioner, but offered plastic surgery services.

General practitioner Carl August Bazán Alvarez, a peruvian national, was arrested after health authorities closed down his office, where he performed all kind of surgeries and treatments, without the training or the proper permits, putting at risk the health of those who went to him ignoring he was not a qualified surgeon.

The head of the Health Regulation Branch ISEA, Octavio Jiménez Macías, said Bazan had been investigated for the first time one and a half years ago, and was told that he could not perform surgery without having the official recognitions, and six months ago warning seals were placed on his business "Clinica Bazán, " which is located in the Bosques del Prado development, because he was providing a service for which he was not qualified.

Bazan continued to offer his services at his home during these six months. Despite that he was warned that he was not allowed to risk patients with his surgery, he broke the seals that were placed in his office and continued with these type of services. Finally, he was arrested right in the middle of a surgery on Wednesday night by verification personnel of the ISEA, assisted by ministry officials, who this same night filled an arrest order for the mentioned crime, because as can be seen even in the seals themselves, the penalty for seal violation is imprisonment.

The situation got out of control, as the peruvian doctor attacked the officers who were trying to arrest him; they finally managed to subdue him, but then he pretended to be ill and was taken to ISSSTE facilities, where he was placed under permanent surveillance by ministry officials.

It saddens me how many conartists are out there on the HT industry. Why aren't they being held accountable?

We don't need a surgeons association, we need an ethics committee to set standards by which reps, clinics, and surgeons need to adhere to!

Scarless, good one!

if someone can invent any surgery that doesn´t scar then i´m sure they would not be posting on forums it would be front page news.

Agony666, ethics committees do not stop this advertising as the web is out there to be abused, what stops it is people showing their results and exposing this type of hype, FUE not scarring its the latest buzz today it seems and giving people false hope, the next thing will be the latest thing is best because its the latest.

I viewed the patent and it looks like a punch to me but maybe it works by osmosis ;)

My mom worked for a man who took his wife to the Philippines in the 70’s as she had Cancer. Well they were able to do something with their hands where they didn’t make any incisions into the body but suddenly blood appeared and in their hands they had what looked like a tumor, who knows maybe it was a chicken gizzard but the man working on her claimed this was the tumor. Her boss took pictures of the whole procedure it was almost like magic.

She was okay for about 1 year then she died so maybe this guy didn’t get the entire tumor. I’m sure he was legit because nobody would actually say they removed cancer from the body for money knowing full well they didn’t and that the patient would die. That is just too hard for me to believe, people are good at least I would like to think so.

I'm starting to get off topic here.......sorry nevermind.

Ghos HST is scarless and its not on the front page, why would it be front page news,

Even if Gho is splitting Follicular units(as many doctors think that is what he does) procedure in itself is still better than FUE..you get half a graft and no white dots

Its a bit pricey but you get scarless procedure

MG have you posted you pictures from the Gho procedure? How many grafts did they transplant and do you feel your donor area regenerated? Do you have actual pictures of the grafts being extracted and then growing again in the recipient area? Since it's hair multiplication do you plan on going for the full thick head of hair you had in your youth? Thanks.
