Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat (aka Dr. Tony Mangubat, LA BELLE VIE Cosmetic Surgery Centers, used to be known as Southcenter Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Spa ) is INCOMPETENT

This is a NON-COMMERCIAL posting/website. Any statements I make below are my own opinion.

To read PROOF of Dr. E Antonio Mangubat's (aka Dr Tony Mangubat's) INCOMPETENCE, please follow these links:

http://sites.google.com/site/dreantoniomangubatincompetent/

http://arlington45678.angelfire.com

Dr. Mangubat was a surgeon with Puig Medical Group (PMG) from 1989 – 1996. Follow this link for the truth about PMG:

http://www.angelfire.com/indie/hairtransplant/94book.html

OR keep reading below.

As described below, Dr. Mangubat was a FULL PARTICIPANT in PMG's incompetent, unethical, and illegal conduct that is a COMPETE DISGRACE to the medical profession. Dr. Tony Mangubat's (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat ) and Dr. Carlos J. Puig's licenses to practice medicine should have been REVOKED a LONG TIME AGO!!!!

I posted online my HORRIBLE experience as a hair transplant patient of Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat (aka Dr. Tony Mangubat, LA BELLE VIE Cosmetic Surgery Centers) in the mid 1990s (see above or link: http://www.complaintsboard.com/complaints/antonio-mangubat-hair-transplant-doctor-c251385.html ). Dr. Mangubat denied my claims and suggested that I was unfairly damaging his reputation. I will now present PROOF of Dr. Tony Mangubat's sheer incompetence and his unethical, deceptive, and illegal conduct.

According to Dr. Tony Mangubat's OWN resume posted on his website (link: http://www.labelleviecosmetic.com/mangubat.shtml ), he was a cosmetic surgeon for Puig Medical Group ("PMG", aka Cleveland Hair Centers) from 1989 – 1996. From Dr. Mangubat's official resume, "Professional Affiliations" section:

Physician/Surgeon, Puig Medical Group, Chicago, IL, Washington, DC 1989-1996

I have also posted at the bottom of this webpage links to pgs 1 – 3 of Dr. Tony Mangubat's (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat, ) resume as HE posted it online on HIS website, LA BELLE VIE Cosmetic Surgery Centers, on 12/5/2010.

As described in elaborate detail by another VICTIM of PMG, PMG and its doctors like Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat) and his former boss at PMG Dr. Carlos J. Puig were engaged in INCOMPETENT, UNETHICAL, and ILLEGAL conduct and used high pressure sales and false advertising to lure unsuspecting clients to become their patients.

This person (I don't know who he is so I will call him Mr. X) was kind enough to post scanned copies of PMG 1994 totally deceptive, false, and fraudulent marketing/sales letters and brochure that used completely unethical high pressure sales tactics. PLEASE NOTE: Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat, LA BELLE VIE Cosmetic Surgery Centers) worked for PMG from 1989 to 1996, and so he CANNOT deny that he was a member of PMG's medical team when this 1994 marketing brochure and cover letter were sent to potential clients, including me.

In mid 1990s, Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat ) and PMG promised to cure my premature baldness in my 20s and give me a "full head of hair" [these words are an exact quote of a complete LIE from the PMG cover letter, see below] after the hair transplants and "Brandy" scalp reduction surgeries. Instead, Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat ) left my head COMPLETELY SCARRED AND DISFIGURED with only a few hairs growing that was of VERY LITTLE, if any, cosmetic significance!!!! He basically left me looking like a FREAK!! I have had AT LEAST 10 reconstructive cosmetic surgeries to reverse what Dr. Tony Mangubat did to me, and to look at least somewhat normal and not like a FREAK!!

I became a patient of PMG in the mid 1990s and I received the SAME 1994 brochure and letters that Mr. X posted on his website with the SAME LIES,HARD SELL & FALSE ADVERTISING and DECEPTIVE LANGUAGE. Please follow the link below for the "cover letter" I received from Puig Medical Group's (PMG) in 1994:

The letter in the above link is Puig Medical Group's (PMG) 1994 Cover letter that I received when I inquired about getting hair transplants done with PMG. This letter is FILLED with LIES,HARD SELL TACTICS & FALSE ADVERTISING and DECEPTIVE LANGUAGE.

The most BLATANT and COMPLETELY 100% LIE is when in the cover letter, PMG promised the potential client that PMG's hair transplants will result in a "full head of hair" [2nd line of 2nd para of letter] that is "virtually non-detectible." [5th bullet in letter] No HALF-competent hair transplant doctor would ever say this because of the limited amount of donor hair in the back of the head of a typical hairloss patient, such as me. But PMG was perfectly willing to say this to MAXIMIZE its sales and LURE unsuspecting clients into selecting PMG instead of one of its competitors.

If Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat ) & Dr. Carlos J. Puig were HALF-honest with their patients, they would have NEVER claimed to restore a "full head of hair" in the PMG's cover letter to me and other potential clients!!

Please follow links below for the cover page & page 1 from PMG's 1994 brochure that is FILLED WITH EXTREMELY MISLEADING STATEMENTS & LIES:

The above links are to the Cover Page, & Pages 1 of Puig Medical Group's 1994 marketing brochure is FILLED with MISLEADING STATEMENTS, UNETHICAL HARD SELL tactics, and OUTRIGHT LIES.

- E.g. OUTRIGHT LIES: "Advances in surgical techniques now allow for complete and permanent correction of this cosmetic imperfection." [Page 1 of PMG booklet] A COMPLETE LIE: even in 2012, advances in surgical techniques do NOT allow for a complete correction of baldness (i.e. a "full head of hair" as claimed by PMG") for most hairloss patients. The key challenge is limited donor hair in the back of the head, and any HALF-competent, ethical doctor would know this and never make this claim (i.e. this 100% LIE) of "complete correction" made by PMG.

- E.g. of HARD SELL tactics: "Let's face it: baldness suggests premature aging." [Page 1 of PMG booklet]. Male pattern baldness is due to a person having genes programmed to result in hairloss, and that's it; baldness has NOTHING to do with premature aging!!

Please follow link below for page 7 of the 1994 booklet that contains LIES based on what is OMITTED from the text.

-Another E.g. of OUTRIGHT LIES, "Bald Area Reduction … can eliminate a major portion of the bald area." [Page 7 of PMG's 1994 booklet] This is a LIE because of what is OMITTED from this claim. Bald area reduction is MAJOR surgery that leaves the head with LARGE SCARS around the scalp area that is removed. In my case, Dr. Tony Mangubat performed a few "Brandy" scalp reduction procedures that left a HUGE horse-shoe shaped 8+ inch long and ½ inch thick SCAR from one TEMPLE to the CROWN and back down to the other TEMPLE on my head!! More info on scalp reduction surgeries here: http://www.angelfire.com/indie/hairtransplant/scalp.html (see below for LAWSUIT in 1996 regarding "Brandy" scalp surgeries, also see this 1996 news article:

http://community.seattletimes.nwsource.com/archive/?date=19960915&slug=2349352 )

But PMG in its marketing brochure makes NO MENTION of any scarring!!!! Talk about doctors (PMG doctors like Dr. Carlos J. Puig & Dr. Tony Mangubat) who leave out CRITICAL info needed for a patient to make an informed decision about the major surgery!!!!

Please follow link below for an insert page from the 1994 PMG booklet that has more LIES!!

- E.g. of Misleading statement/LIE: "The most natural hairline that is virtually undetectable...Cosmetically incredible….You will look and feel the way you hoped to AGAIN!!" [Insert page in link above of PMG booklet] In the case of most patients, including me, another COMPLETE LIE. My hairline was anything BUT natural after Dr. Mangubat's procedures with a few hairs growing in different parts of the hairline and the majority of the front hairline with no hair at all!! With the LIMITED amount of donor hair and hairloss on the front and crown in many patients, there is NO WAY there would be enough donor hair for hair transplants to result in a "full head of hair" with a "virtually undetectable" hairline!!!! And yet, PMG was perfectly willing to promise "you will look and feel the way you hoped to AGAIN!!"

So, as Mr. X asked in his review of PMG, "WHY is the Puig Medical Group creating this false premise in the minds of potential patients? Because building FALSE HOPES in patients is good for BOOSTING SALES." Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat) was part of the team at PMG that ONLY cared about SALES, and patient's welfare was NOT a main concern. That is why doctors at PMG (e.g. Dr. Tony Mangubat & Dr. Carlos J. Puig) were willing to say ANYTHING, EVEN OUTRIGHT LIES, to ensure that the potential client would select PMG, and not one of its competitors, for hair transplants.

Please follow link below for page 1 of Dr. Tony Mangubat's (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat) resume in the mid-1990s that I received from PMG:

Above link is to Page 1 of Dr. Tony Mangubat's (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat) mid-1990s resume that I received from Puig Medical Group in 1994. Please note that on Page 1, the part underlined in red clearly shows that Dr. Tony Mangubat was a doctor with Puig Medical Group from 1989 until the date of the resume (i.e. mid-1990s). So Dr. Mangubat cannot deny that he was a doctor with PMG in the mid-1990s, even if he may want to now!!

Please follow link below for Page 2 of Dr. Mangubat's 1994 resume while at PMG. Please note the text at the bottom [underlined in red], which CLEARLY shows that Dr. Mangubat performed "Brandy"-style scalp surgeries that left me SCARRED and DISFIGURED. "Brandy" refers to Dr. Dominic Brandy, who was in 1996 SUED and PAID damages for performing such scalp reduction procedures [again link to a news article about this: http://community.seattletimes.nwsource.com/archive/?date=19960915&slug=2349352

Above link is to Page 2 of Dr. Tony Mangubat's (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat) mid-1990s resume that I received from Puig Medical Group. Please note that at the bottom of page 2, it clearly says [underlined in red] that Dr. Mangubat performed "71 Modified Brandy Flaps", and he did a few "Brady" scalp reduction procedures on me. As I just mentioned, "Brandy" refers to Dr. Dominic Brandy, who was in 1996 SUED and PAID damages for performing such scalp reduction procedures; here again is a link to a news article about this:

http://community.seattletimes.nwsource.com/archive/?date=19960915&slug=2349352

NO ONE has to just rely on my review to decide that Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat) and Dr. Carlos J. Puig are COMPLETELY INCOMPETENT. Anyone can just read the 1994 cover letters & marketing brochures of Puig Medical Group itself to come to your own conclusions.

(again available here:

http://www.angelfire.com/indie/hairtransplant/94book.html

and here:

http://picasaweb.google.com/117812991164449030691/DrCarlosPuigDrEAntonioMangubat# )

When you read these documents, you'll see for yourself the TOTALLY deceptive practices, false advertising, and outright LIES that PMG's doctors engaged in to lure unsuspecting clients.

Let me STRESS again, Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat ) himself on his online resume PROUDLY says that he worked as a cosmetic surgeon at PMG from 1989 – 1996, and he therefore was a FULL PARTICIPANT in PMG's incompetent, unethical, and illegal conduct that is a COMPETE DISGRACE to the medical profession. I know this FIRSTHAND because of what Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat ) did to me, i.e. promised me a "full head of hair", and left me SCARRED and DISFIGURED!!

If Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat ) argues that he never saw or participated in any deceptive practices and/or GROSSLY OVER-PROMISING on the results to potential clients, you have to believe that he NEVER read any of PMG's marketing literature or letter or discussed or participated in surgeries or consultations with clients during his ENTIRE SEVEN year stint as a Physician/Surgeon at PMG"”this is a COMPLETELY LAUGHABLE argument!!!!!

Please note that I am not the author of Mr. X's angelfire website on PMG, but I completely agree with what this person Mr. X says. This person is another totally INNOCENT VICTIM of PMG and its INCOMPETENT FRAUD doctors (e.g. Dr. Carlos J. Puig & Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka E. Antonia Mangubat). Dr. Tony Mangubat's (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat ) and Dr. Carlos J. Puig's licenses to practice medicine should have been REVOKED a LONG TIME AGO!!!!

If after reading this posting, Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat ) decides to delete the reference to Puig Medical Group from his official resume on his website, LA BELLE VIE Cosmetic Surgery Centers, the 1st question you MUST ask him just exactly where did he work from 1989 – 1996 and did he ever work for Puig Medical Group ??!!

Please follow links below for screenshots of the 1st 3 pages of Dr. Tony Mangubat's (aka Dr. E Antonio Mangubat) resume as HE POSTED it online on HIS website on 12/5/2010, LA BELLE VIE Cosmetic Surgery Centers (used to be known as Southcenter Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Spa):

http://www.labelleviecosmetic.com/mangubat.shtml . On page 3, he CLEARLY STATES that he worked for Puig Medical Group from 1989 - 1996:

Hey SPAMMER from Redmont, Washington.I know who you are, you are DR.

MANGUBAT or someone who works for him to promote HIS SCAM as a “plastic surgeon.” Is it just a COINCIDENCE that Redmont, Washington is next to SEATTLE, Washington, where Dr. Mangubat practices??!! OF COURSE NOT!! Dr.

Mangubat may have thought he could just MOVE ON after BUTCHERING innocent victims who were patients of HIS and Dr. Carlos Puig’s SCAM Puig Medical Group, BUT THINK AGAIN!!!! Dr. Mangubat’s and Dr.

Puig’s past will follow them wherever they go!!!! The internet is GLOBAL, and so they can’t just move to another state or country (Philippines?!) to run away from their SCAMMING past. The only option for Drs. Mangubat & Puig is to MOVE TO MARS where there’s no internet!!

BTW, Mr. Redmont Washington DIDN’T DENY any of the claims above, so in effect he/she ADMITTED to Dr.

Mangubat being an INCOMPETENT SCAMARTIST!!:grin :p

Hey Arlingsten, aka Mdusa22, aka GBorch, aka GBorchi, aka GGBB, aka BBGG, aka GregSmart, aka who knows how many other fake aliases you have setup posting the same whiney spew across the Internets.Isn't spoofing user profiles against the TOS of this forum (and all others) as well as illegal in some states?

You may want to research the services of a good psychiatrist instead of frittering your sad days in your mom's basement.

- E.g. of HARD SELL tactics: "Let's face it: baldness suggests premature aging." [Page 1 of PMG booklet]. Male pattern baldness is due to a person having genes programmed to result in hairloss, and that's it; baldness has NOTHING to do with premature aging!!

Please follow link below for page 7 of the 1994 booklet that contains LIES based on what is OMITTED from the text.

-Another E.g. of OUTRIGHT LIES, "Bald Area Reduction … can eliminate a major portion of the bald area." [Page 7 of PMG's 1994 booklet] This is a LIE because of what is OMITTED from this claim. Bald area reduction is MAJOR surgery that leaves the head with LARGE SCARS around the scalp area that is removed. In my case, Dr. Tony Mangubat performed a few "Brandy" scalp reduction procedures that left a HUGE horse-shoe shaped 8+ inch long and ½ inch thick SCAR from one TEMPLE to the CROWN and back down to the other TEMPLE on my head!! (see below for LAWSUIT in 1996 regarding "Brandy" scalp surgeries, also see this 1996 news article:

http://community.seattletimes.nwsource.com/archive/?date=19960915&slug=2349352 )

But PMG in its marketing brochure makes NO MENTION of any scarring!!!! Talk about doctors (PMG doctors like Dr. Carlos J. Puig & Dr. Tony Mangubat) who leave out CRITICAL info needed for a patient to make an informed decision about the major surgery!!!!

Please follow link below for an insert page from the 1994 PMG booklet that has more LIES!!

- E.g. of Misleading statement/LIE: "The most natural hairline that is virtually undetectable...Cosmetically incredible….You will look and feel the way you hoped to AGAIN!!" [Insert page in link above of PMG booklet] In the case of most patients, including me, another COMPLETE LIE. My hairline was anything BUT natural after Dr. Mangubat's procedures with a few hairs growing in different parts of the hairline and the majority of the front hairline with no hair at all!! With the LIMITED amount of donor hair and hairloss on the front and crown in many patients, there is NO WAY there would be enough donor hair for hair transplants to result in a "full head of hair" with a "virtually undetectable" hairline!!!! And yet, PMG was perfectly willing to promise "you will look and feel the way you hoped to AGAIN!!"

So, as Mr. X asked in his review of PMG, "WHY is the Puig Medical Group creating this false premise in the minds of potential patients? Because building FALSE HOPES in patients is good for BOOSTING SALES." Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat) was part of the team at PMG that ONLY cared about SALES, and patient's welfare was NOT of the SLIGHTEST concern. That is why doctors at PMG (e.g. Dr. Tony Mangubat & Dr. Carlos J. Puig) were willing to say ANYTHING, EVEN OUTRIGHT LIES, to ensure that the potential client would select PMG, and not one of its competitors, for hair transplants.

Please note that on Page 1, the part underlined in red clearly shows that Dr. Tony Mangubat was a doctor with Puig Medical Group from 1989 until the date of the resume (i.e. mid-1990s). So Dr. Mangubat cannot deny that he was a doctor with PMG in the mid-1990s, even if he may want to now!!

Please follow link below for Page 2 of Dr. Mangubat's 1994 resume while at PMG. Please note the text at the bottom [underlined in red], which CLEARLY shows that Dr. Mangubat performed "Brandy"-style scalp surgeries that left me SCARRED and DISFIGURED. "Brandy" refers to Dr. Dominic Brandy, who was in 1996 SUED and PAID damages for performing such scalp reduction procedures [again link to a news article about this: http://community.seattletimes.nwsource.com/archive/?date=19960915&slug=2349352

http://community.seattletimes.nwsource.com/archive/?date=19960915&slug=2349352

NO ONE has to just rely on my review to decide that Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat) and Dr. Carlos J. Puig are COMPLETELY INCOMPETENT. Anyone can just read the 1994 cover letters & marketing brochures of Puig Medical Group itself to come to your own conclusions.

(again available here:

http://www.angelfire.com/indie/hairtransplant/94book.html

and here:

http://picasaweb.google.com/117812991164449030691/DrCarlosPuigDrEAntonioMangubat# )

When you read these documents, you'll see for yourself the TOTALLY deceptive practices, false advertising, and outright LIES that PMG's doctors engaged in to lure unsuspecting clients.

Let me STRESS again, Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat ) himself on his online resume PROUDLY says that he worked as a cosmetic surgeon at PMG from 1989 – 1996, and he therefore was a FULL PARTICIPANT in PMG's incompetent, unethical, and illegal conduct that is a COMPETE DISGRACE to the medical profession. I know this FIRSTHAND because of what Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat ) did to me, i.e. promised me a "full head of hair", and left me SCARRED and DISFIGURED!!

If Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat ) argues that he never saw or participated in any deceptive practices and/or GROSSLY OVER-PROMISING on the results to potential clients, you have to believe that he NEVER read any of PMG's marketing literature or letter or discussed or participated in surgeries or consultations with clients during his ENTIRE SEVEN year stint as a Physician/Surgeon at PMG"”this is a COMPLETELY LAUGHABLE argument!!!!!

Please note that I am not the author of Mr. X's angelfire website on PMG, but I completely agree with what this person Mr. X says. This person is another totally INNOCENT VICTIM of PMG and its INCOMPETENT FRAUD doctors (e.g. Dr. Carlos J. Puig & Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka E. Antonia Mangubat). Dr. Tony Mangubat's (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat ) and Dr. Carlos J. Puig's licenses to practice medicine should have been REVOKED a LONG TIME AGO!!!!

If after reading this posting, Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat ) decides to delete the reference to Puig Medical Group from his official resume on his website, Southcenter Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Spa, the 1st question you MUST ask him just exactly where did he work from 1989 – 1996 and did he ever work for Puig Medical Group ??!!

Please follow links below for screenshots of the 1st 3 pages of Dr. Tony Mangubat's (aka Dr. E Antonio Mangubat) resume as HE POSTED it online on HIS website on 12/5/2010, Southcenter Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Spa:

http://www.southcentercosmetic.com/mangubat.shtml . On page 3, he CLEARLY STATES that he worked for Puig Medical Group from 1989 - 1996:

Hey SPAMMER !Arlingsten FAIL!, I know who you are, you are DR. MANGUBAT or someone who works for him to promote HIS SCAM as a !plastic surgeon!The comment by !Arlingsten FAIL! to move on just shows what a CROOK/BUTCHER Dr. Mangubat is. I wish I could move on after being left SCARRED & DISFIGURED by the CROOK Dr. Mangubat. But the reality is that I still need more reconstructive surgeries to UNDO CROOK Mangubat’s HORRIBLY DISFIGURING procedures.

Also, on moving on, Dr. Mangubat may have thought he could just MOVE ON after BUTCHERING innocent victims who were patients of HIS and Dr. Carlos Puigs SCAM Puig Medical Group, BUT THINK AGAIN!!!! Dr. Mangubats and Dr. Puigs past will follow them wherever they go!!!! The internet is GLOBAL, and so they cannot just move to another state or country (Philippines?!) to run away from their SCAMMING/BUTCHERING past. The only option for Drs. Mangubat & Puig is to MOVE TO MARS where there is no internet!! BTW, Mr. !Arlingsten FAIL! DID NOT DENY any of the claims above, so in effect he/she ADMITTED to Dr. Mangubat being an INCOMPETENT BUTCHER/SCAMARTIST!!

Can't believe you are complaining about a procedure done over 15 years ago...now?!How about you said something and sought remedy about this back in the nineties?

Learned nothing about this post other than some people have way too much time on their hands.

What's with the Frankenstein bed graphic you drew?Get a life and move on.

E Antonio Mangubat - My Hair Transplant Experience with E. Antonio Mangubat of Seattle, Washington, USA

Reston, Virginia 2 comments
Not resolved

I am a former patient of E. Antonio Mangubat (M) of Seattle, Washington, USA and my advice is whatever you do, DO NOT go to M for any hair transplant procedures!!!! I have described below in detail my horrible experience with Mangubat (M).

I know readers of this forum are very concerned and feel down about losing your hair. I felt the same way starting at 18 when it began for me. However, you don't have to go through my horrible experience with my hair transplant "doctor" (described below)! Not to mention forking over your hard-earned savings to him!

Very Important: The before/after photos that many Hair Transplant surgeons show you are VERY MISLEADING because:

- Many doctors only show their best top 5% patients, and don't show you the average result or, as in my case, the bad results.

- The photos are typically low resolution, so may not clearly show the hairline or may be in low light, thereby concealing the thin density and unnatural look of the transplants.

I was also in my 20s when I signed up as M's patient. He suggested that I get 3-4 transplant sessions and 1-2 Scalp reduction surgeries (called "Brandy" procedures after Dr. Dominic Brandy http://www.brandymd.com/ ). The worst decision I ever made in my life was to follow M's advice and have these procedures done. M left me SCARRED and DISFIGURED!!!!

BTW, Dr Brandy was sued in part for performing the "Brandy" scalp reduction procedure:

http://community.seattletimes.nwsource.com/archive/?date=19960915&slug=2349352

http://nl.newsbank.com/nl-search/we/Archives?p_product=PG&p_theme=pg&p_action=search&p_maxdocs=200&p_topdoc=1&p_text_direct-0=0EADFA0E15FC891D&p_field_direct-0=document_id&p_perpage=10&p_sort=YMD_date:D&s_trackval=GooglePM

)

I know this sounds unreal, but anyone who has a consult with M should ask him about the "Brandy" scalp reduction procedure and ask to see before/after photos of Brandy procedures. If he dismisses your request (says you don't need a Brandy) and refuses to show photos, ask yourself why is M refusing to show his own work? Is he hiding something? If you get to see the photos, look closely (even though he'll show small Polaroid pics) and you'll notice a thick straight or horseshoe-shaped scar ¼ - ½ inch from 1 temple to the crown and back to the other temple with no hair growing there. Beware that M may show you "after" photos with the surrounding hair combed over the scars.

This is nothing less than totally misleading and a LIE because it doesn't show the true result which is 1-2 scars 6-8 inches long and ¼ - ½ inch thick in the middle of your head from the temples to the crown!!!! M left me with such a horrible scar and I've undergone

numerous reconstructive surgeries, spending over $20K, to reduce the scars.

Although M may not recommend a Brandy surgery on you, I mention this procedure for this reason: what does the Doctor care about most: your welfare and your well-being OR the money he'll make from you?? In my case, without a doubt M only cared about the money! Otherwise he would have stopped himself from doing what he did to me, particularly the 2 Brandy procedures. He didn't know what he was doing and he didn't

care! So in my opinion, he's definitely NOT a doctor to be in the care of!

I did a few quick searches and found M in his own words praising the "benefits" of scalp reduction surgery (see below). This kind of surgery (the Brandy procedure) is what left me totally scarred and disfigured!! So much for the "benefits"!!

M's own words speak volumes on his incompetence and the fact that he's clueless and oblivious to the harm he's done to many like me. Here are the links:

The Rise and Fall of Scalp Flaps, Reductions and Lifts

[Tony Mangubat of Seattle, WA is one of the leading doctors performing scalp reductions. "I've noticed in the Seattle area over the last two years a fall in the area of scalp reductions... I was a little disappointed in it, and I was almost upset until I started looking at it in a more objective way... the answer to this question becomes very clear." Dr.Mangubat outlined his feelings on reductions and why he thinks the number of doctors performing the procedure has decreased. "We want fast results, we want a home run.. Managed care has caused an influx of newcomers. The fact is I make more income off of hair transplants than scalp lifting, so from a financial point of view maybe it's not such a bad idea..." The fall has been precipitated by an influx of newcomers due to doctors who are earning less due to managed care and HMOs. "These are all victims of our new managed care society," said Dr. Mangubat. Doctors coming in have been resistent to learning reductions, flaps, and lifts due to the steeper learning curve, greater risks, and marketing against reductions. The number of doctors performing are remaining steady, but the number of doctors coming into transplants are growing, so the overall percentage are lower.]

If I could do it over again, I would have NEVER trusted M and NEVER let M lay a hand on me. Instead, I would have just accepted my baldness and not done any hair transplants; I would have shaved my head while we wait for a cure.

Unfortunately, M left me with huge scars on my head and so I can't just shave my head. Instead I'm forced to wear concealers to hide the ugly scars on my head. Anyone considering M does not have to go through what I've been through. So I strongly recommend that YOU STAY AWAY FROM MANGUBAT!!
