Such a poll is purely subjective anyway, so to each their own.
Dr. Keser's work has been discussed, shown, and linked quite a bit on other hair restoration forums (a poster on one of those forums compiled a list of links to Dr. K's results a while back), his clinic posts on one of those forums, and videos posted by some of his patients are also publicly available. I agree that this pick for top 5 is something of a wild card and "conditional," as I said, but the work of his I've seen is beautiful and extremely impressive. He performs multi-day FUE sessions, taking a maximum of 700 grafts per day. I do hope that his clinic and patients start posting here more.

Blake,

This is off topic from the "Top 5 fue surgeons" but since it's here, I have to ask..... what do you mean by using the implanter in a unique way? Can you clarify?

Hi Janna,

To be 100% honest, this is information I'm simply sharing from what other members have said on the forums.

I've read about the Choi implanter pen in the past, and from what I can tell (and others have shared), he uses it "differently."

While I don't think he technically uses the device in a manner in which other surgeons don't, he is achieving high yield FUE with a tool most seem to have dismissed.

I suppose "different" or unique may not be the best terms, but I think I was simply trying to explain his apparent success with using an older tool most have abandoned.

I'm not trying to say it's innovative or anything else, but I've simply heard his use of the pen is "different."

Pup,

At one point in time, we did consider recommending Dr. Keser. We were impressed with his results and even worked through quite a bit of the actual recommendation process. However, in the end, he failed to address a few crucial concerns and we were unable to move forward.

ive read here before this site extended the invitation to Bisanga a couple of times which he did not follow up. His reps seem to be active on another well known forum who list a whole lot of his results.

He probably does not deem it necessary.

He really should be recommended here though as his FUE work is world class.

Thanks Bobilero, you may know better as you are an older member than me. I really hope this network recommend real FUE surgeons beside Dr. Umar. Now that Keser is rejected,and Bisanga not interested, I hope Lorenzo respond and considered. Although I'm a strip surgeon because I was cut already, I still believe that FUE is the next big thing. Once its done, there are no fears of quitting sessions and shave up. Personally I only trust IAHRS and HTN recommendations because they would be your advocate if anything goes wrong.

FUE is great, even for larger sessions. Only downside is most clinics only do 3,000 grafts maximum per patient. So a NW 6 or 7 would have to do 3 sessions spaced one year apart each, meaning 2 years(3 for the full result). H&W can do a 9,000 graft session in one day and restore the patient to a very respectable level with only one downtime period. Although FUE would be a bit easier post-op, the patient still has to deal with the ugly duckling stage AND possible shockloss to the donor and recipient. Also the cost...

However, I too hope Lorenzo jumps on board on this fine forum. I really think he obtains the best yield out of FUE and is daring in that he accepts NW5's and 6's. Hell I've even seen some NW7 results from him that look very good. He really believes in the full potential for FUE to be a standalone procedure, not just an adjunct or as an additional method to supplement strip. The fact that he shuns not only the ARTAS system AND motorized punches is great too. The evidence of yield is in his videos.

Ah! I wasn't aware of that. Would you mind sending me a private message for my own, confidential use, letting me know what concerns were not addressed?

H & W can do 9000 in a go because its strip and you cant really compare FUE sized sessions to mega strip sessions due to the huge demand FUE sessions involve. Its unlikely that most people will be even able to get 9000 grafts out with FUE unless you have extremely dense hair, even then you have the issue of scarring.
