Hair restoration still suffers from the same problem it's always had: the limited supply of donor hair
The procedures are invasive, painful, cause scarring, and limit the patient's options for future treatments
Waiting can offer a better diagnosis, chance for non-invasive options, and the benefits of scientific advances
Bosley puts a high emphasis on sales and marketing and uses salespeople for consulations
The term "Bosley Physician" is confusing because doctors work for themselves and are not part of Bosley
A guarantee of results misleads the public and may violate state and federal laws (ISHRS red flag alert)

Surgery can come with many negative side effects including permanent tissue loss, nerve damage, scarring, additional hair loss, and pain.
FUE is marketed as a better alternative to invasive FUT surgery but results can be worse. Grafts may only have a 60-70 percent survival rate and can be more prone to die in the long run.
BOSLEY HANDHELD MOTORIZED FUE
A hair transplant clinic is not the best place to learn about your hair loss. Dermatologists are specialists in hair and skin and can test, diagnose, and objectively recommend treatments.
A recent study found that 9 out of 10 patients had significant loss of transplanted hair after four years.
Bosley accounts for about one percent of HT surgeries performed in the world.
Stem cell treatments are called the future of hair restoration and may soon replace hair transplants. They would avoid much of the pain, destruction and limitations of current methods.
Patients should consider if they are willing to commit to a conventional hair transplant that comes with large-scale damage and could hurt their chances of benefitting from new science.

5 The surgery is minimally invasive
A comprehensive solution for hair loss does not exist. For most HT surgery is a
gamble on a partial result and patients must continue using other treatments and drugs.
Bosley does the same types of surgery as many clinics and the non-invasive treatments and drugs are widely available elsewhere and online.
Despite claiming this it doesn't say what they are. Bosley copies methods invented by other doctors and has been slow to adapt to new techniques.
Most doctors acknowledge that the vast majority of female hair loss is not suitable for surgery.
The surgery always comes with side effects and scarring and can harm your potential to benefit from other treatments.
Common Bosley complaints are excessive scarring (L) and inadequate density (R)
