What are your opinions on the techniques and procedures of Dr. John Cole, such as his FIT procedures which he acknowledges was developed from your FUE. However, the FIT is allegedly an improvement. Also, what do think about his claims regarding Body Hair Transplants. I know you have made previous comments regarding BHT’s. However, I am asking specifically about Dr. Coles procedures regarding BHT.
FUE and FIT is exactly the same procedure, with some technique variations. There are a number of technical ways to do it and FIT is a proprietary brand name developed by Dr. Cole to show some unique identification for him. Body hair transplants are new with not much validation from other doctors. There are only a few patients with any history to the process and we do not know much about success rates in, let’s say, 100 patients overall. I am not surprised that they may work, but body hair is limited in numbers, usually growing as a single hair unit although there are some two-hair groups. The hair has a different character than scalp hair, but Dr. Cole’s claims have no real science with them, although I am not saying that it is not true, just not proven scientifically. I would not jump into it just yet. It is, in my opinion, still an experimental procedure.
