Default Why NOT to get an FUE- Interview with Dr. Willaim Reed- by Dr. Feller and Bloxham

In America the only trend regarding FUE is to move AWAY from it.

While the hype and performance of this procedure has become epidemic in other countries, this country has been roundly rejecting it for very very good reason.

FUE has it's place, but not as a first line procedure for large numbers of grafts. Instead, the gold standard of hair transplantation known as FUT or Strip method should be employed.

Through interviews with experienced hair transplant doctors we seek to educate the public as to the very real limitations and unavoidable consequences of the FUE procedure.

We understand- to the normal person the FUE procedure SOUNDS preferable to the FUT procedure, BUT these interviews with the expert surgeons who actually perform hair transplantation will help you to understand why this is just not the case. FUT is a far far better option.


Rather than relying on anonymous online posters who have created almost 100% of the false hype underlying FUE, we present actual doctors who have dedicated their careers to hair transplantation. These experts tell the truth about FUE and why they would not have such a procedure on themselves-opting instead for FUT.

Appreciate the informative videos Dr. Feller!

What are your opinions on FUE-ing into an FUT scar a year or two post op, assuming a trichophytic enclosure? Would that enable a patient to trim their hair shorter?

Spex and Ernie look pretty good with the strip procedure IMO. Have you taken the plunge with surgery yet or still researching?

I've done the research. Just waiting until the best time to do it, which will be soon since I'm almost 30 and my norwood pattern is becoming clear.

I can't take finasteride so I need to plan more carefully than most. My point is just that the guys with 10s of millions generally choose FUE so it isn't just some internet hype phenomenon.

Awesome, I'm in sort of the same situation. A few years away from 30 so want to see what my pattern is going to look like. That'll give me time to save up the $$$. Sorry that you can take finasteride, luckily it's been doing well for me with no side effects

Would you mind checking out the question I posed earlier and weighing in?

Because they have egos, and are less willing to educate themselves.

They also can't afford the downtime of strip.

This post is biased garbage.

I've had 3800 FUE grafts placed into my hairline and nobody can tell I've had transplants. My donor looks exactly how it did before and i don't have to worry about a smiley face scar revealing itself when I'm older, scar stretching, possible nerve damage, etc etc. I had NO pain whatsoever after my transplants.

Of course doctors (especially older ones who started by performing plugs and are set in their ways) prefer strip to FUE since it's easier to perform.

Dr Feller or Blosham, is there a way to reduce or get rid of raised recipient areas? And to do this without compromising any recipient grafts? Basically, this is when a practitioner fucks up and places grafts inappropriately, thus causing shickloss, then creating a speed bump like feel in the recipient area. Would like to hear your input or video regarding these high density careless recipient megasessions that might do more damage and cause issues that my harm the patient. Thank you.

You make good points in the video. There are top docs that cant nail fue right for a lot of folks. I know a lot of sufferers and repair patients and from a couple of doctors. Their FUT may be more solid with less repair folks floating around vs their FUE. That may indicate something.
