Default Great FUE Physicians in the USA

Hello Fellow Members,

I am here seeking counsel and advice for a FUE hair transplant. As with most men, I find a certain identity with my hair and have great concerns about balding or going bald. The stress it generates for me probably only contributes to the problem and ultimately I have decided to explore my options.

I would say that I'm in the fact finding phase of my journey. Money isn't necessarily an issue, but I want to be sure that if I make this kind of investment I actually see results. This is absolutely why I will put in the time to do my research. If anyone could provide any advice/testimonials regarding reputable FUE physicians or their recommendation I would greatly appreciate it. I would prefer to stay in the US, but wouldn't necessarily rule out traveling abroad. Thanks in advance and God bless you all.

I'm not sure of all the rules in the forum.

Can I "PLUG" my doc?

Hello ArochaAngel4247. Thanks for your response. Have you had a procedure done at this facility with this Physician?

Anonymous84, all you really need to do is hang around this place for a couple of months and you will see repeated names and good results and find out who the superstar Physicians are.

Hi Anonymous84,

I've had a FUE session. I am a hair loss sufferer. I am totally biased. TOTALLY. While I feel my doctor is the best, I'm sure others who are pleased with their work feel the same way about their surgeon. In an effort to be helpful and unbiased - check out the navigation bar near the top of the webpage. On the left it starts with "Home" and at the other end is "Find a Surgeon". Click on it to see a list of vetted hair restoration practices. Or to make it easy:

Find the best hair transplant doctors

Hoping you like Texas, home of the World Series Champions- Houston Astros! It has been a long wait, our first win.

Like Voxman said, if you stay on this forum long enough, you'll start to see who a lot of the top surgeons are (or at least the ones that tend to get the most love). You can also use the list of recommended surgeons on this site as a starting point. Read posts from guys who talk about their research and how they chose the surgeons they did, etc. Then once you narrow down your choices, set up consultations, talk to former patients, etc. Take your time and be thorough and you'll set yourself up well for a successful procedure.

Pkipling,

Thank you for sharing. It looks like you achieved tremendous results. Quite frankly, this has proven to be a pretty daunting task to say the least. Itís nice to have a community to be able to discuss this openly. Might I ask you a few questions about your procedure?

1) Was your FUE transplant conducted manually or was some sort of robotic assistance used?

2) How involved was Dr Mohebi with the actuall procedure? Did he extract the grafts from the donor zone as well as place them in the recepient zone(s)?

I agree with everyone above, do your homework on this website, take your time, schedule a consult, and choose the doctor you’re most comfortable with. I had surgery with Carolina Hair Surgery in 2012. Dr. Vories consults with all his patients via web consult online as well as in person at one of his two clinics. He maps out a plan for you and extracts and places all of the grafts himself. Best of luck with your decision and your off to a great start comunicating on this website. To see my before/afters since 2012 visit my website at My FUE Hair Transplant.
