Wht abt Dr Bhatti - darling buds India for FUE? Iam trying to research his work for FUE & only problem I am facing is lack of effective documentation of results. Also, he is not recommended by hairrestorationnetwork. What's the viewpoint on this doctor? Anyone? Is he in Top 5 or Top 10 FUE surgeons in the world?

People are weary of clinics that don't use a pen implanter? Being in the industry and speaking with other physicians and technicians over the last 18 yrs, we've looked at the implanter pen as an easy alternative if you don't have a skilled planter who uses forceps. It takes a long time to acquire the skills needed to plant the grafts proficiently without damaging the grafts with forceps. You need less technicians if you use the pens. When incisions can be made ahead of time the traditional way, the planting phase can be more efficient using 2 or 3 technicians than the implanting pens. The incisions are generally closer together as well.

No no Janna, I meant "Also doesnt use an implanter pen which some people are weary of" as in "some people are weary of the implanter pen" hehe. I should have used a comma to be clearer.

Ok, that makes more sense. Thanks for the clarification.

I just want to clarify this statement. I would interpret "weary" to mean that they are tired of them. Do you mean to say that they are "wary" or cautious of them?

In the right hands the implanter pen can produce stellar results. If you give a paintbrush to a 6 year old child and see what they produce you might not consider it artwork. Give that same brush to Monet or Picasso and a masterpiece is created. It all depends on the ability of the surgeon. Dr Lorenzo is a good example of the implanter pen producing masterpieces.

Opppps, sorry, meant wary hehe. This was at a time where implanters were in their relative infancy and people were a bit apprehensive about them compared to the widely-used custom blades.

Default opinion about doctor

Hello everyone, im new here as this is my first post.
I'm from portugal and im considering the option to have a HT.
So i wanted to ask you if you could suggest me a good doc that had the best results/price relation. Im on my early 20s and i have a receding hairline, i thought about opting for FUE and i have sent some photos to some HT doc on online consultation and i was told by the most i needed somewhat around 2000folicules to have a good density on the hairline.

So what doctor you would recommend me?

Thanks in advance.
