I have had two hair transplants. In August 2012 I flew from Texas to Vancouver, BC to have Dr. Jerry Wong perform a large hair transplant. I chose Doctor Wong because of his clinic's reputation, his willingness to do large sessions, as well as I felt he produces some outstanding crown results, I can't say enough about the professionalism, deep staff, and wonderful experience I had at Hasson & Wong, but there are other great doctors out there as well.

I suggest only using a doctor that does hair transplantation on a full time basis and not someone that "dabbles" in hair transplant surgery. You want a doctor that is passionate about hair transplantation, a doctor that does several hair transplant surgeries a week, every week. Full time hair transplant doctors are more likely to have skilled technicians and staffing that are specialized in the field.

Don't limit yourself to only doctors near you. You want the best. This is something you will have to live with the rest of your life. Some people think nothing of flying across country to Disney World for a one time experience but seem reluctant to fly cross country to ensure a great surgical result that will last a lifetime. Think of a plane ticket and a couple nights in a hotel as well worth being with the best world renowned surgeons.

My personal list of top North American doctors would be:
Hasson & Wong (Vancouver)
Dr. Rahal (Ontario)
Dr. Feller (New York)
Dr. Ron Shapiro (Minnesota)
Dr. Arocha (Texas)
Dr. Charles (Florida)
Dr. Lindsey (Virginia)
And several others.......
XLNT advice shampoo!

I would add Dr Diep in los gatos, ca in your list above ;-)

If you're in Sweden, why not try Dr De Reys in Belgium. It's not too far, he's quite cost-effective and he does fantastic work.

Here's a link to my journal on the forum:

i have seen many ppl coming to india for good docs r available here at very low cost compared to other places...this is the reasoning given by them...
i got my fue done by dr tejinder bhatti from chandigarh last week..i met 2 patients there..1 from austria another from dubai...most of his patients r from outside india...u can hv a look at his work..i hv been told that coming to india and getting ht done is more cost effective than getting it done there...
personally speaking i really liked his work..he is vry enthusiastic about his work...he is a full time surgeon..doing a transplant almost everyday..infact he ws so booked that i cudnt get a date within 13 days..i found the technical staff also very cordial and jovial..

I can't stress this enough... Go to Turkey.

The flights are relatively cheap from where you are, the procedures and results are top class (search for my blog thread on here for details) and the price is cheaper than the majority of others available.

For example, i had 2,800 FUE and the price was GBP 4,500 including flights, accommodation, procedure, medication and after care. The results are fantastic with no side effects, problems, scarring or loss of yield.

The private hospital was the best i've ever seen, the surgical team were ultra professional and only wanted the best results for me and the hotel/city is fantastic.

It's a no brainer really.
2800 FUE, Istanbul
