I had 2 FUE sessions with Armani 5 years ago. Poor yield and he jacked up the hairline even the second time when I told him I wanted more in the crown and mid area. He only made the holes for the grafts. The techs did the rest. They used a drill from Home Depot to yank out/extract the grafts.

Classic Joe, telling it like it is.

Bloody hell that sounds like you had fun. Did you ask him why he decided to switch to fue? It did seem to be the switching to fue that sent his results downwards.

Probably the biggest mistake he ever made then was because he got greedy.

He told me he thought it was a better procedure for the patient, but I'm sure making perhaps 3 times the amount than strip was a factor. There were probably a lot of patients that got good FUE results from him, and it's likely he really thought he was getting the same results as with strip. The more megasessions that were done, the more cases of poor yield, like mine, arose.

It's interesting to see people changing their stance..
First the shift from strip to fue and now back to strip.
Whatever ne1 may say, wastage is certainly more in fue.

I would stay away from Armani. Some patients of his have experienced total donor depletion from excessive FUE. His hairline designs are attractive, I will give him that. But reports of poor yield and exhausted donor are a big no no for me.
