This sounds like a nightmare.

NYC Woman Sues After $250K Hair Implants Leave Her Bald

Some poor unfortunate lady lost all her hair after trying to thicken up what she had!

According to NY Post reports:

A Manhattan woman is suing claiming an implant procedure left her permanently bald.

Deborah Betesh, 56, forked over $250,000 for the too-good-to-be-true treatment from a Midtown company called Microdot, she says in her $15 million Manhattan civil suit.

When the procedure, which required surgically implanting hair into her scalp, left bald patches instead of the promised head of healthy hair, a Microdot staffer tried to weave more hair into Betesh’s remaining strands, the suit says.
That too fell out.

The company employee who performed the medical procedure was only licensed in cosmetology, the suit says.

Betesh, who lives in Murray Hill, eventually had to buy a “permanent artificial wig for several thousands of dollars,” according to court papers.

She underwent the treatments from April 2012 to April 2014 after Microdot pledged to give her “the hair of her dreams,” the suit says.

“Not only would Microdot technique exactly match the color and texture of her natural hair, it would allow her to among other things, wash her hair, use a curling iron or even put it in a ponytail,” the company pledged to Betesh, according to court papers.

The treatment has a history of unhappy customers. The Better Business Bureau has received 10 complaints in the past three years for “problems with product/service.”

Hey, on the bright side nobody will ever refer to her as a “nappyheaded ho.” But seriously, how didn’t she do the research ahead of time to discover all they were working with was a cosmetology license?
