Good luck Jaydublin, 1800 grafts in one day sounds safe as long below 2000, good news is that Dr. Feriduni went back to manual FUE as he found motorized FUE does not meet the patient expectations in terms of final yield of the grafts. Wish you all the best.

Wow, alot of Doctors seem to be moving away from motorized FUE. I think I remember a case where a patient had FUE with Dr. Feller with using a motorized method and the yield was not great. On the second touch up a manual instrument was used and the result improved but the patient then went to Rahal for a 3rd procedure. Lorenzo is the only Doc I would go to for FUE now. No one else.

Just saw the video of Dr. Lorenzo on youtube, he is quick with the old choi implanter. What is the alternative to the choi?

JayDublin- how important is it to you for people not to find out, I was fully committed to keeping quiet, but it just seemed like too much effort and when I "came out" I got nothing but positive responses from friends and family, everyone telling me I'm brave for some reason... and all my balding friends are now curious as hell.

If ya really don't wanna tell people, you could make something up like an infection on your head... I mean if you really had a problem say head through glass window with lots of tiny cuts, would you worry about covering up redness?


Back to the topic... could we make some sort of grading criteria so we can find out who the best actually is? Using before after pics combined with patients testimonials, healing time, cost etc...

Could be an interesting project.

No real alternative to the Choi besides the good old "Extract first, make incisions and then have the techs place the grafts in" really.

Jay,

I love Dr. Feriduni's FUE results. I think you made an excellent decision. In my opinion, he's absolutely one of the best. Please, keep us updated!

Jay with FUE if you lay low for 2 - 3 weeks and take that time off work . You will most likely get away without telling anyone bar your missus.

Shave your head if you wish couple months before the Op. People will get used to seeing you without with shaved head so wont arouse any suspicion post op or attract any eye drift.

Get on MSM to speed hair growth so your native hair grows back quicker. Loads of things to help with redness. Aloe Vera etc. Lasercomb helps healing and gets rid of redness. Clinique any redness will help disguise if theres any lingering redness hanging around.

You will be fine.
