  1. I’m looking for a UK surgeon to perform some front hairline work – possibly 1500 to 1750 grafts based on a previous examination. I’d prefer FUT as I don’t want to shave my head to zero and am looking for better rate of follicular transection density - obviously I want to consider the best UK surgeons to do this. I’ve seen Unshaven FUE but I’m a bit sceptical of the results. I’ve researched UK surgeons and found two lists one this forum and one on the IAHRS website, both listed below. How easy is it to get on these lists? I can find plenty of reviews for everyone except Edward Ball and Asim Shahmalak, can anyone shed any light on these two surgeons and their results. I’m aware of Mr Shahmalak’s celebrity clients but I tend not to take those too seriously and am looking for some objective reviews.
