I like it! If Doctors post results of a FUE patient, will it go in this section though or in the main results section?

So far I see Dr Serkan Aygin in Istanbul Turkey. First of all, He is honest. Other clinics were even saying 4000-5000 hair grafts are possible during one session. He checked and said your back can not provide more than 2200 hair grafts,however this we will try our best. If We have more, it will destroy your back. One session is enough. No need for second session. Insisting on more hair grafts, he said money is not a matter. I look forward a person who is honest and not money oriented. Sorry pals. I read how much money you are talking about FUE operations. It is really hard to believe for me. Maybe it is because I live in Turkey. I know he is one of the best, because I met many people from different nations and they visit him with others' recommendation. Word of mouth. Because I believe in others' opinions. I'm planning to have my operation in January. Hopefully.

I have to say from my research(however limited) that I would only trust a handful of Doctors with my head if it came to FUE. Dr. Lorenzo would be on top of that list by far. He practices FUE exclusively, obtains great yield and is also ethical(unlike Dr. "Italian fashion designer"). He doesn't do sessions over 2,000 grafts for most patients either which may be an inconvenience for those that need more, but the yield is not hindered.

He told me only a small fraction of his patients are foreigners(2-4%) so he does take them, but there is quite a waiting list. I wish he would be active on this site, there is a lot of interest in his work.

Sparky,

I think Dr. Lorenzo does use the Choi Implanter. However, as far as I can tell, he uses it in a very unique way and it works well for him.

Very hard to pick top 5.

In the end, I think it all comes down to the greatest number of successful cases showcased in FUE.

Look for user posted results and progress, that may help. Seeing a patient in person will help even more.

Good luck to all those researching.

He does. Although I have read he only extracts 500 grafts at a time, implants them and then goes back for more extractions. The grafts are never sitting out for too long. His technicians load the grafts into the implanter and hand it to Dr. Lorenzo. He does the incision and implant at the same time in one go. I like that he goes all the extractions, incisions and implanting himself. Some may be turned off by the speed of it all or the use of the Choi implanter though.
