The salesman was only a salesman -- he has no personal experience with eyebrow transplantation, or hair transplantation of any kind. He could have been selling ANYTHING. He was fine -- I have NO complaints about him whatsoever. But everyplace else, you speak with the doctor who does the procedure. At least the salesman could have been a person who had had the procedure. But he was not (I asked). Given this, the price was not significantly cheaper than places where the actual doctor speaks with you. Also, you have VERY FEW before/after pics of eyebrow transplantation. The salesman tried to say that "women don't want their pictures displayed," and stuff like that, but I have had several cosmetic procedures and I think women would be FLATTERED to be featured as a before/after, since the whole face is not featured, just the eyebrow area. No one would know who it actually is. So that made me think that Bosley does not do that many eyebrow transplantations, or at least not that many GREAT ones, so that is the reason why they don't have more than just a few pictures to show. Considering it's a big company, with lots of locations, Bosley should have MANY more before/after pics than a doctor who is a sole practitioner with only one location. This did not inspire my trust in Bosley or their practitioners. I wonder why they don't have the doctor meet the prospective patient, but of course it's economics. So they should be A LOT cheaper than the places where the doctor does the consultations with prospective patients. I found a doctor who does ONLY hair transplants and eyebrow transplants, who does maybe a dozen eyebrow procedures a month, who gave me a free consultation, and discussed both the procedure with me personally as well as the cost, which most cosmetic surgeons do not do -- they have their assistants discuss the costs. So I was really impressed with this guy. He was a bit more expensive than Bosley, but Bosley was already over $5,000, and if I'm paying that much already, I don't mind paying maybe a thousand more for this kind of treatment and the confidence it inspires. There is no way that a salesman who has never had any hair transplantation procedures, and probably no cosmetic procedures at all ever, can sell a procedure like this well. Most of the assistants in cosmetic surgeons' offices that you speak with have had at least one, and often SEVERAL, cosmetic procedures, and can speak about them through experience. It's one thing to buy a car from a salesman that doesn't own that car -- at least he has driven it once or twice. This was not a good way to sell hair/eyebrow transplantation. I'm sure it works, and I'm sure MANY people pay Bosley their rather high fee for the service they provide, because it's harder to do the research to find an independent doctor, but I would rather not go with this set-up.
