Many thanks guys I will do a bit more research and pick from one of these guys.
I don't mind traveling but as I'm based in Europe do u think it's advisable to have surgery here in case of any hiccups?

Yes, In Europe you got these 3 surgeons "Feriduni, Bisanga and Lorenzo". They are so good that you do not really need to cross the atlantic ocean in order to get one. Check them all out. For your info. Dr. Lorenzo only practices FUE and you can check his results on you tube under "Injerto Capilar". Good luck.

This is a question that's been asked a lot and it's always a good one.

I went to Dr De Reys in Europe so I can recommend him. Here's my journal:

...BUT(!) here's another thread on the same topic from a while back where Dr De Reys is discussed by the actual publishers of this forum as well and they know what they're talking about:

Compiling a list of "top 5" hit docs is subjective, and it you follow this board you will see that particular docs' popularity can spke and wane over time. What I would tell you is this: Nearly every ht doc's web site will have one or two "wow' results. But in compiling YOUR list of favorite docs, look for consistency of excellent cosmetic results demonstrated in patient after patient. This is subjective as well. You will find as you peruse hundreds of results on doc's web sites and results posted by docs and their patients on this board, that different docs have different aesthetics, approach, and technique that manifest over time in their results. You will find yourself often being able to peg a patient as having been done by this doc or that doc. There is just a "look" to the work. Not always, of course, but you will see what I mean. And here's the thing: what looks great to some might look odd or "off" to you, and vice versa. That's what I mean about the subjective component of rating ht docs. And don't ignore your gut when assessing a doc's body of work. If a few of their results give you pause, even though much of their results look good to you, keep in mind that they posted the "odd" results as examples of their work too and you could be that patient. Beyond that, you will want to research whether they specialize in FUT v. FUE, or are equally adept at both, and, of course, you want to compare consistency of result with these docs' FUE and FUT work. You will also want to focus on these docs' results with patients whose hair loss is similar to your own. And you will want to determine whether a particular doc whose results appeal to you with patients of similar hair loss to yours generally achieve these results in one-pass (so called "mega" sessions) or prefer to take a more conservative approach to session size and divide them into two sessions -- both approaches being valid but presenting different considerations for the patient. It is fun (and sometimes maddening) to compile a list of "top" ht docs. Just make it your own list and not someone else's.

Hairchop8.... we all have our particular reasons on who our top 5 surgeons are.

Like for reason I am choosing Dr. Wong is my case leans more heavily towards crown work. Personally I think Dr. Wong gets some outstanding crown results.

Also Hasson/Wong appear to stretch the envelope as far as large sessions. If Hasson/Wong can get great results with larger sessions that is a huge selling point for me. That means I have only one healing period, only one day of needles, only one ugly duckling period, only one surgery, only one adjustment at work, only one set of flights, ect... I even had one of my other top choices tell me if you want 4500-5300 grafts in one day it may be best for you to go to Hasson/Wong because large sessions are their specialty.

I have not studied any of the guys outside of North America, but some of my top choices would be Hasson/Wong, Ron Shapiro, Rahl, Feller, Lindsey, Arocha, Konior, True & Dorin. (I know it's more than 5, I was always bad at math)

It seems these top guys all really have lots of great feedback from happy patients, so you'd be in great hands at any of them.
Dr. Dow Stough - 1000 Grafts - 1996
Dr. Jerry Wong - 4352 Grafts - August 2012
Dr. Jerry Wong - 2708 Grafts - May 2016

Remember a hair transplant turns back the clock,
but it doesn't stop the clock.

Can anyone tell me about Dr. Arocha? I'm considering him and need to know more about him/his service and if he is worth it or not. Thanks

You have a lot of great docs listed here. I like SMG, Hassan & Wong, Konior, Rahal, Lindsey, and True & Dorin. I have not studied the docs in Europe as much since I live in the US.
Surgery - Dr. Ron Shapiro FUT 6/14/11 - 3048 grafts

Surgery - Dr. Ron Shapiro FUE 1/28/13 & 1/29/13 - 1513 grafts

I am seeing the same names on this site as well as the other sites I have gone to - H&W, Bisanga, Feller, Rahal, Feriduni, Shapiro - which is a relief as I have contacted them all last week! I have also contacted Ziering, Bernstein, Reddy and Shahmalak but these people haven't been mentioned once which could well say something.

I am in need of a hair transplant and while I am based in London and a train to Belgium to see Bisanga or Feriduni would be easier, I would be happy to go to Canada or USA if needed. From what I have been told by a few of these doctor's so far is that I need a minimum of 3,000 and maximum of 4,000 session.

Would this amount make FUT a better option than FUE? If so, could you perhaps give an order of the top 3 FUT technicians and another top 3 for FUE?

Any help would be much appreciated.
