  1. I wouldn't go with Diep personally so I would take him back out.
  2. I went FUT with Hattingen after 2-3 years of research and I am at the 4 month mark but H&W in Canada have a stellar reputation too. However, there are an increasing amount of people complaining they have been pushing patients into FUE once they are already in the surgery room saying they do not have the laxity to do FUT. Strange that this higher proportion of patients with poor laxity have only come become more commonplace since they have started doing the more expensive FUE method. Still, their results are amazing. Dr Feriduni is another excellent choice. I have seen results from Dr Konior that I am impressed with but I did not research North American clinics enough to know if he does FUT, FUE or both.
  3. Yeah, response is a little slow but as you say, I found that in general across Europe. The problem is that he is involved in the surgery but also the one who responds to the emails and does the consultations. Pretty hard to fit all three things in to one day. If you want, inbox me and I will give you the receptionist's email address. Post-surgery, they give you their cell numbers so you can text or ring them directly if there are any issues. As most people on this site will (hopefully) attest to, I did a lot of due diligence and spent 2-3 years researching this. However, in that time I didn't look at temple points at all because I do not need them doing so I really can't answer that question. The hairlines however are amazing but conservative. Look on the German and French fora for examples. I don't take/want to take medication and am a high NW pattern so needed to have a conservative hairline so this suited me. For others (you), it may not. I actually went for a consultation with Dr Feriduni. I do not think I need to wax lyrical about him or say how much of a lovely, generally great guy he is or how knowledgable he is so I will not. I loved the hairline that he drew for me (except for the fact it started above my natural hairline) but he wanted to do FUE and would not budge to FUT (or to start the hairline at my natural hairline). He even gave me a discount to convince me to have FUE. In the consultation he gave me his very honest opinion (positive and negative) about some of the other doctors I had consulted with and also ones I was considering. He spoke really, really highly of Hattingen saying they were "an excellent choice - a really, very good choice" - he also spoke very positively of H&W FYI. The fact they do FUT, have many, many good examples online and then were spoken so highly about by another doctor who has a world class reputation despite him knowing I would probably go there sealed it for me.
  4. I wore a hat immediately after the surgery (with a bandana on under it) and wore it whenever outside the house from that moment onwards
  5. Hey you're back! Good news. Where did you go? I got mine done in the end and went with FUT for it too.
  6. I went with Hattingen 4 months ago - I am glad somebody (you and @rocketmas ) added them to the list. World class clinic
  7. It is not that they have superior methods. My guess, and it seems to be the consensus, is that Spanish hair is perfect for this procedure and most of his patients are Spaniards i.e. right thickness, density, color etc. and it gives the illusion of density..... which is what we are all chasing anyway. So whilst they are undoubtedly good, do take into account if you have thin, blond hair from Sweden, you probably won't be getting the same result as Pedro from Madrid even if you both went to Lorenzo or Couto. I would really look at Heitmann in Switzerland. His hairlines are amazing and Swiss/Germans (where most of the Swiss clinics' patients come from) don't have the same hair characteristics. You could also try my clinic, Hattingen Hair. Swiss Elite clinic like H&W and like H&W, they added FUE a few years back. If you can't get in touch with Lorenzo, consult with Dra Vila as I mentioned above, so cheap, much shorter waiting list and did Lorenzo's transplant. I don't see how a consultation would hurt you? Dr Feriduni - I had an inperson consultation with him. I don't see the point in internet ones except to make a general assessment of the clinic and its quality but with Feriduni, that is already a known quality: he is world class. Inperson, they (clinics in general) can count your donor, design the hairline, take pictures, inspect miniturization and general hair quality..... definitely worth it. When I went, the waiting list for a consultation was longer than the waiting list for a procedure. You'd have to ask him what his schedule looks like now. When is your internet consultation?
  8. First of all, you should probably create your own thread. It is unfair to hijack other people's threads. Secondly, you haven't said whether you have a preference for FUE or FUT or no preference at all? The doctors you have mentioned are FUE so I am guessing that this is your preference. The waiting list for the Spanish doctos is huge - if you want to go with them, you will not be doing it this summer or possibly even summer 2020. I am not kidding either. It took over 6 months for them (can't remember which one) just to get back to my email to tell me there was a three year waiting list. Maybe even more. I had an in-person consultation with Dr. Feriduni and he was very good but wanted to do FUE and I want FUT. I eventually went with a clinic he highly recommended. I would still have a consultation with him because of his pedigree and very ethical approach, even if you go with somebody else. Be warned though, you have to pay for a consultation with him. Another FUE alternative is Dra Maria Ximena Vila. She has set up her own clinic in Madrid and whilst I haven't seen her results specifically, I can tell you she used to be aprt of Dr Lornezo's clinic and she and the team there did his transplant. For legal reasons you would have to find her results on Lorenzo's page. Another option, not mentioned on this site but is still excellent, is Dr Heitmann in Switzerland. For FUT there are other options. Hope that helps.
  9. I agree. It is a good result, as always from Feriduni, and the patient will be very happy.
  10. Disagree. The crown is a black hole and quite a lot of the grafts went there judging by the final density and the size of the area to be implanted on in the last picture. With the temple points too, there is probably 2-2.5k in the front and 1.5-2k on the crown. The patient's face is framed much better and the hairline, whilst not low, looks much better. The best picture is the second one of the patient looking to the right (because of the sideways direction he brushes his hair). He looks much better on this one and he is only 3/4 way through the result now with another 3 months of growth to go.
  11. Hi! Does anybody know of a good (ideally active) forum for orthodontics? I am thinking of getting braces and have a few questions but I get mixed replies from clinics I have consulted with and I am concerned some may be "interested" opinions/advice. Thanks
  12. Hi! I feel for you. Sorry to hear about your situation. I went to clinics that had a reputation of being ethical and producing good, consistent results. I was only ever considering Europe however. I had been following the clinic I finally went with on another couple of sites and was very impressed with the work. What swung it for me is that Dr Feriduni himself in an in-person consultation I had with him told me they were an elite level clinic and that he thought their results were amazing. My advice thefore is, like I said, ethical (they won't BS you) and consistently good results (they know what they are talking about). Then just compare the advice given to you and even put it on here for people to give their opinions. I am very happy with my result so this worked for me. I know Dr Feriduni does repair work and he also charges for his consultations (about 200 euros) so you know his opinions are impartial. Might be a good starting point that you can use as a baseline for any other advice/suggestions given to you.
  13. Sorry for the late reply. I have been away. Hattingen prices are on their website so full transparency (also like H&W in that respect). Dr Feriduni quoted me 4.5 euros a graft for FUE for 3000 grafts but that was in an in-person consultation, which cost about 200 euros. I do not think he has his prices online http://www.hattingenhair.com/en/hair-transplant-prices/prices/
