I've been working hard on a new project and it is finally ready to share. With the expansion of scalp micropigmentation in the hair restoration world there have been a lot of questionable claims and even more questionable results. In addition, there has been no real structure to the scalp micropigmentation industry and it has left every company fighting tooth and nail for your bald scalp.

I have created a new website,, with a few goals in mind. To present "the other side" of the SMP coin, the … read more

Hair Transplant Mentor™ in Belgium May 19th

Oh boy! It's time to hit the road again. I'm heading back to Europe and this time I'm doing things different than before. I will be conducting clinic reviews, interviews and conducting Hair Transplant Mentor™ Second Opinion Service meetings with men and women that want a second opinion about their consultations or to talk about their surgery if they already had one. I know it is farily last minute, but sometimes that is how things happen. Sorry for the late notice but I … read more

This new membership listing makes Dr. Karadeniz the third hair transplant surgeon in Turkey to be accepted to the IAHRS. With hundreds of FUE hair transplant clinics in Turkey this is pretty big deal as it really helps to highlight the difference between doctors like Dr. Karadeniz and the majority of the rest of … read more

Hair Transplant Patient Confidentiality

So I was reading a review by a patient about his experience in Istanbul Turkey and I was more interested in the overall situation OF his experience and not so much of the details about his experience. What I mean is, it all seemed just so, I don't know, convenient. The guy started posting his questions about this clinic on March 31st of 2015. By April 9th of 2015 he was saying that he found a negative review of the doctor but that it seemed suspicious and he was booking … read more

FUE History

This was a good show. It's always great being on air with Spencer Kobren as we always seem to have great discussions. This one was no different except that it was a bit more serious in tone simply due to what I think was my frustration I was feeling at the time. I've been doing this for over ten years and I still get charges up by things I see and read online. There are a of claims all over the web and most of them are completely bogus. Spencer … read more

Dr. Jerry Wong, Looking Sharp!

As this website moves forward and matures I will be adding new sections and new tools. Before that happens however I felt it necessary to put together a page dedicated to my doctor, Dr. Jerry Wong. Dr. Wong deserves all the credit in the world for turning my life around. Without him, I would not be here. I would not be in Canada and I wouldn't even be married to the woman I'm married to. It all started with him so I wanted to make … read more

Rocking The Hair Transplant Boat

Since I've announced that I am no longer working with any single clinic and have shared the update of this website I have received a lot of great support from hair transplant patients and I've had some very nice support on the hair transplant forums with even more support via emails behind the scenes. I've also had hair transplant doctors contact me to congratulate me, some have contacted me via Skype to introduce themselves and to pick my brain, but a few have contacted me to say that my Hair … read more

Is This The Treatment We’ve Been Waiting For?

stem cell hair

I've read, heard and seen it all. Stem cells is such an overused, whored out term that it no longer has any sort of meaning or significance for me. However, my wife was perusing the interwebs this morning and this story popped up on her Facebook feed (but not mine???) and she pointed it out to me. I at first gave it only 1.3 seconds of my time but then she kept reading it and then I got a bit more interested. This seems to be the most promising, yet … read more
