Who is the best hairline transplant surgeon period?

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

 

Not to be obnoxious with my first post, but I am a pretty straightforward guy. I am wondering who are the world's 2-3 best hair docs, considering:

 

a) I want FUE only

b) Hairline restoration is my main priority

 

Cost of the surgery is irrelevant. I will travel anywhere in the world, although I am located on the US West Coast.

 

Thanks! :)

If you want FUE only, I would recommend the best FUE surgeon in US (Dr. Feller), IMO he is the most experienced in this type of surgeries. However he is located in NY which is East Coast. There are very few good FUE surgeons as this type of surgery really needs long experience cause without it it will yield poorly.

Thanks, Hariri.

 

Based on research I've done over the last month or so, I also have Dr. Feller on my list.

 

I am also thinking about Dr. Rahal and Dr. Shapiro.

 

Artistically speaking, both have hairline photos that are unbelievable - they look almost too good to be true. Although I suspect only the patients with the best results make it into the online gallery.

 

Thanks,

Sugar

Well No doubt that Dr. Rahal is the king of hairlines as he was my choice for my repair by a strip surgery. However I understood that you insist on FUE, thats why I recommended Dr. Feller. I really strongly believe that he is superior in FUE technique. Try to contact SPEX and he will show you unbelievable FUE results produced by Dr. Feller.

Thanks, fellas.

 

Yes Hariri, I understand the FUE extraction sites are much less visible than FUT strip scars. I want FUE in case I will buzz off all my hair one day.

 

That day may be a long day away, but I want to consider the future.

 

Thanks,

Sugar

Have you seen any of Dr Bisanga's work?

 

Yes, I have looked at his web site for over an hour. If I can be convinced he is better suited for me than any North American doctor, then I will go there. However, Belgium is far away.

IMHO, there is no "single best" HT surgeon for hairline work. There are a number of them that do world class results.

Yeah I agree with Levaris. Bisanga is the best FUE surgeon in the world in my opinion, He is amazingly talented and I have seen two results LIVE plus he can do all type of FUE from scalp hair to beard hair to body hair. However in US I would say Dr. Feller (Bisanga US Version).

I agree completely. There simply is no "best" or "king".

Thanks, guys. I really appreciate this insight.

 

I will consult with Dr Feller, Rahal, SMG. Maybe Dr Bisanga, but he would have to be an order of magnitude better for me to go outside North America.

I've been around here since 2006 , on fin , had a ht , shown it to guys comtemplating a ht in the uk and posted regular updates with pics .

 

I've seen some great fue work from all the guys listed above and I'm currently looking at getting another ht to concetrate on the front and temples , for me i'll be going strip and with Dr Feller , I need strip due to wanting over 2000 grafts .

 

I think Dr Feller creats one of the most undetecteble hairline ht and has been doing fue the longest , you won't go wrong with Dr Feller and he is definatly worth a consult .

 

good luck bud

This is probably generally true of the HT world, but I think with the doctors you're considering, the results posted by patients to the forums match those posted on the website galleries.

Thanks, el nino. Your HT results are unbelievable! Very nice.

 

Thanks pal.....and rest assured my hair looks just as good in person. Like matt says the best Docs don't need to cherry pick the results which are shown.

 

My latest pics show me with a buzzed 3 cut all over. Not many HT patients can get away with this because it destroys the illusion of density which is what most HTs are. And it can leave the scar exposed.

 

But my crown has been dense packed to 72 FUs per cm2 by the king of dense packing. So I don't need to have long hair or any dodgy comb overs for a good look. But I may try a mowhawk when it has fully matured. (joke.....maybe).

 

Good luck.

Dr. Feller has the most experience of all the docs mentioned and he is the only one I would 100% trust with a FUE surgery as of right now. Dr. Rahal and Shapiro have been showing some nice results here, though. Consult with as many as you can. Best of luck!

Has anyone ever considered that your own hair (donor) has a lot to do with how the hairline will look ?

 

Nobody mentions this but I think it's true as not all hair will not lay the same even when cut up into small grafts and dense packed.

 

Any thoughts ?

Yes, this is a concern to me. I have wavy/curly hair, so I wonder how the donor area might lay when growing in the front.

 

For people with straight hair, it probably doesn't matter.

what about dr feriduni?

feller is a top doc though...

they have all had their fair share of bad eggs, but i do know that dr feller is one of the few docs you can trust.

I think that Rahal is the best agressive, dense placing doc.

SMG is the best if you are ok or prefer conservative.

 

I have seen a lot of good results from Dr. Feller, but would not place him at the top right now for me personally.

 

Rahal has probably had the hottest streak so far.

Dr. Ron Shapiro is the doctor that is always involved in the hairline conversations and debates. His opinion is always appreciated. I am lucky to have had the opportunity to have worked with him in his Minneapolis office for many years and had a chance to observe many great hairline cases that he performed. It has definitely made a difference in the way I do hairlines in my cases.

    • Before the operation, you and the doctor can determine the planting plan. It is possible to plant 3,000 hair follicles and possibly 5,000 hair follicles. But how do you know that so many hair follicles have been planted?  If you actually plant a few hundred hair follicles or even thousands, you probably don't know?  So the question is coming. Is there a way to prove how many hair follicles I planted last?  Especially the manual FUE
    • Folks, Apologies for loosing track of this thread as I got occupied with other things in life. I would post some pictures soon. Almost 11 months have passed since my surgery . Everything is looking fine. My hair have grown well and has completely changed my front look. Only little downside I faced is thin donor on the back but I am fine with that considering how much of a difference it has made on my front look.  Now I think that it is time that I should start focusing on mid scalp and crown area and would schedule personal consultation with doctor  to see what are my options (BHT....May be if possible??). Please share if some of you came across certain threads related to body hair transplantation, and if that is a reliable option.  
    • Looks good. Next two months, but even next month are transformative. My hairs are still thin, but I'm hopeful they thicken, I don't know why they wouldn't. The hairline looks good, and it passes as natural, even with the shorter and thinner HT hairs.  Most people won't spend long enough looking at your hair to notice anything. Enjoy yourself out there and don't worry about it. Even if anything was suspected, passing it off as a bad haircut or even "that's just how my hair grows" is sufficient. I would be in shock if enough people approached you with questions for you to even waste time thinking of responses. Your hair looks good.
    • Looking back through the thread, I think your results look promising. You have new growth where there was none before. The growth you have is like my growth, very thin and curly. I too need to have it thicken up. I looked at myself in mirror (I'll try posting update tomorrow), and my hair looks very similar to yours. I see the area Bhatti worked on has more density, along with the new hairline. The issue you and I have is that the new density doesn't look good against the contrast with existing density. I recommend going to get a haircut like you had at 3 months, and especially thinning out the non-DHT prone crown (the toilet seat shaped area). It is the part that gets the most dense. I think that the two steps I would take is waiting for the thickening (not sure how long your or my case will take), and finding a flattering haircut.  I also started to thin (maybe fin shed, maybe I'm getting balder!) in my top+crown. So I gently push hair sideways. I'll try to explain tomorrow on my post. There's no issue with styling your hair to fit you. I see a lot of posts that essentially want care-free hair. They want to look good all the time from all angles. I just wanted to not be bald! If it takes a few seconds to a few minutes to accomplish a look you like, it is what it is. Again, I recommend modifying styling options. Without a haircut, your HT hair is at a disadvantage to the native highly-dense hair. If you don't want to cut it all down to a 3 month point, I recommend using thinning shears and reducing the amount your non-recipient hair "falls" on itself. Any additional perceived density on surrounding hair reduces perceived density on recipient hair site.
