Default BHR information.

I've been looking at clinics around Europe and the BHR establishment in Brussels caught my eye.

It looks like a very informative and professional website and I know that Belgian clinics are held in high regard but what got me was that after I calculated my approximate FUE needs (1500 grafts) and then recalculated the Euro value into pounds it came out at ?5090.

Is this for real? Don't get me wrong I think that HT costs in general are extremely overblown but still this is much more affordable than any UK clinic I've seen, almost half in fact and it's just across the channel. With a bit of hard graft I could eventually save up this amount in not too long a time.

So the question is.......is Dr Bisanga reputable surgeon who does good work?

After salivating at the prospect of a HT and finally getting my Ace Rimmer hair almost in affordable reach I'd hate to hear that he was just another butcher operating outside moral law.

Without any doubt, seeing is believing. He is one of the best FUE surgeon I have ever seen, go to website of hairlossexperience and you will see loads of FUE after photos under Dr. Bisanga section.. Dr. Bisanga and Lorenzo are my top FUE choice with no doubts. I would say go ahead and get your head done with him. Try to communicate with his rep. Stephen, he himself is a great example of Bisanga's FUE outstanding work.

Thanks for the reply. It all seems a little too good to be true but I can't argue with that kind of glowing praise.

I'll check out the photographs for sure as the one's on the website looked good but there wasn't a whole bunch of them.

Swayzedo,
Bisanga is legit and his prices are very reasonable. I had 2 procedures with him. Feel free to check my results by clicking on my signature. Also, I would be happy to answer any questions.

Great results and I'm really surprised at how back to normal you look after only 5 days. Do you know if they do any kind of outbound consultations? Living In Scotland it's a bit of a trek to Belgium and back just for a 30 minute assessment although for the actual procedure it's fine. I wouldn't want to have a consultation then right into surgery the next day.

Thank you for the kind help.

Bisanga's rep Stephen lives in the UK and would be a good starting point. You could start with an online consult also to get initial impressions and build from there. How far is Brussels from you?

About 700 miles I think. It's not a great distance as far as travelling goes but I don't like flying at all.

I'll start with the online consultation and then contact Steven for further details. (Once I have the money saved up of course!)

Thanks!

Keep in mind that most of the top clinics are booked out for a few months for the procedure so there is no harm in doing the consult before you have the money saved. In fact it would be a good idea to get a grafts estimate and other details in advance so you know how much to save for. They won't pressure you to book a procedure.

That looks great Sparky. I like how there is a slight gradient in hair density from the very front inward which mimics perfectly what happens in natural hairlines.

After thinking a bit more I could probably push to 2000 grafts which (and this is only using the google euros to pounds calculator) would be about ?6300.

Still far, far more affordable than any UK clinic for that amount of grafts and every result I've seen from Dr Bisanga has been ultra top quality and looks totally natural. The man definitely has an artistic flair which is half the battle in this game.
