Are there any pictures of a donor area with that many fue grafts(approx 9000) taken from it?

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...

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.
That is true. Some people don't have enough donor hair for 9,000 grafts from FUT either but you can probably get more out of a strip procedure given equal circumstances. Lorenzo does seem to be pushing the bar in terms of big FUE sessions on high Norwood cases though. The shaved donor areas that show the scarring look pretty good even on the high end graft extractions, although maybe in person it would be a bit more dramatic. No one going through FUT or FUE would expect to shave their head with a zero guard or razor and expect a scar free scalp though(HST is still pending). Do you think with 6,000+ grafts via FUE a patient could buzz their head to a 1 guard on the clippers?

We reached out to Dr. Bisanga, but never received a reply. I can't really speculate as to why. However, if he does ever decide to become more active on the forums or formally consider the recommendation process, I think we'd all welcome the involvement!

Bill sent Dr. Lorenzo a message some time ago, but I haven't (personally) heard anything since. However, it's my understanding that he operates with a very small staff and works long hours, so maybe he will get around to responding one day? We would definitely appreciate his input on the forums, and any patients or potential patients are welcome to convey that message to his clinic.

Hi! would you mind send me the reasons for rejecting him... unfortunately he's the best pick for me since I reside in the middle-east :/

Very hard to classify a top 5 but some of the more experienced FUE surgeons(in no order) are:

-Bisanga(Belgium)
-Feriduni(Belgium)
-Lorenzo(Spain)
-Keser(Turkey)
-Erdogan(Turkey)

The last three on the list perform FUE exclusively. I do admit that none of these doctors have a 100% success rate at FUE. I have seen average or below average results from them. The same could be said for the elite FUT doctors but to a lesser extent. I still would not be swayed to go FUT just for the yield though. With the aforementioned Doctors you should have a high chance of a great result but there are no guarantees with any hair restoration in regards to growth, yield, scarring etc.

Looks like Europe is leading the way here... surprised there is not more from the Americas or Asia.

Is that list in order?
