I've been really contemplating and don't see much posted about which doctors has experiences with person of asian descent. I've seen one recent post from someone who had good results from Dr. Cooley. But are there any other good doctors who are familiar with asian type hair?

Hi there,

I think most of the good docs out there have dealt with people with all types of hair and nationalities.
I would spend yr time checking out all the docs on here and trying to speak to as many patients as possible to find the doc who you feel most comfortable with

Best of luck

Bnash there is a lot of very good surgeons on here.

Just research!
2 poor unsatisfactory hair transplants performed in the UK.

Based on vast research and meeting patients, I travelled to see Dr Feller in New York to get repaired.

Asian patients are no different than caucasian. Any good hair restoration surgeon will do a good job. African American hair is the tough one because the hair keeps curling under the scalps surface. Being in Tennessee, you will have to travel a bit to find a good one.
Finasteride 1.25 mg. daily
Avodart 0.5 mg. daily
Spironolactone 50 mg twice daily
5 mg. oral Minoxidil twice daily
Biotin 1000 mcg daily
Multi Vitamin daily

Damn, with all the stuff you put in your hair are you like a negative NW1?

FWIW, my understanding is that Asian hair can be ideal to work on in terms of shaft angle and straightness.

An important thing to know about Asian hair is that you must find a surgeon that understands the difference in hairline for each ethnicity. A surgeon should know that Asians and Blacks usually have a lower hairline (as low as 6.5cm from mid-eyebrow). Whereas Caucasians are generally higher hairline. It depends on your overall facial structure.
