Dear Forum Members,

 

As many of you know, we gather as much information as possible about a physician, their staff, technique and track record before they are even considered for recommendation on the Hair Transplant Network. Part of our review process involves getting input from patients and the members of this forum community. To learn more about this review process, click here.

 

We would appreciate your input regarding the potential recommendation of Dr. Raghu Reddy of London, England. At this time, Dr. Reddy is only being considered for recommendation, not the Coalition. To see our standards for recommendation, click here

 

Dr. Raghu Reddy has over 6 years of experience and performs primarily FUE hair transplant surgery at his own clinic in London England. He has the staff and experience to perform up to 2500 grafts per day and dense pack up to 50 follicular units per square centimeter (FU/cm2) when appropriate for the patient.

 

Dr. Reddy's interest in hair restoration dates back to his medical school days where he personally struggled with significant hair loss. Thus, after obtaining his qualifications and surgical training in West of Scotland, Deanery, Dr. Reddy pursued further training in hair restoration surgery. As both a patient and a surgeon, Dr. Reddy is very empathetic towards his patients and passionate about his work.

 

Dr. Reddy specializes in shaven and non-shaven follicular unit extraction (FUE), body hair transplantation (BHT), scar repair, general repair, eyebrow reconstruction and provides both ACell and PRP treatments. He operates on only 1 or 2 patients per day depending on the size of the session and provides free consultations at his clinic. Dr. Reddy operates with a small team including himself and 3 technicians averaging over 6 years of experience each.

 

Dr. Raghu Reddy believes it takes years of experience to master the FUE technique and angles and is very conservative - putting the needs of his patients above technical dogma. Dr. Reddy feels that FUE can minimize overall discomfort for patients and can provide fantastic outcomes on par with the strip harvesting technique, when done right. However, Dr. Reddy admits that FUE can have serious consequences, resulting in poor growth, excessive scarring and a depletion of valuable donor hair in an inexperienced pair of hands.

 

Dr. Reddy performs manual FUE with the standard Versi handle and punches ranging between .8mm and 1.0mm depending on the size of the follicular unit. Dr. Reddy also applies ACELL to the donor area in order to aid healing and minimize the appearance of scarring.

 

In Dr. Raghu Reddy's experience, manual follicular unit extraction allows an experienced surgeon to follow the natural emergent angles and aids both depth control and extraction of the follicles while minimizing transection and undue trauma. Dr. Reddy feels that it becomes more difficult to extract quality grafts and that this ability is lost with motorized FUE. Dr. Reddy acknowledges that manual extraction can be extra tedious and time consuming and thus, a significant amount of concentration is required to produce quality grafts with manual devices. To learn more about Dr. Reddy's extraction technique, visit "Improvements in Extraction of Follicles" on his website.

 

Dr. Raghu Reddy is a member of the ISHRS (International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery), the BSHRS (British Society of Hair Restoration Surgery) and the BMA (British Medical Association).

 

Given Dr. Reddy's experience and commitment to high quality follicular unit hair transplantation via FUE, I believe that he should be considered for recommendation. See our standards for recommendation.

Good work, UK patients really need a solid FUE doctor besides Farjo who mostly perform FUT. Many of UK patients are travelling abroad because of that so Dr. Raghu Reddy is the right man for the job. His name sounds Indian though...

 

However London is bloody expensive, I wonder how much he charges per graft?

Forgot to add, he isn't afraid to work on various ethnicities, women(usually Docs recommend FUT for females) and people who have sustained facial and/or scalp injuries/burns.

I guess there are surgeons that offer the same (or higher) quality for a (much) cheaper price, but the results seem to be quite solid, also he has got numerous very good results on his homepage, so I would definitely welcome him on here!

 

@Hariri: The price depends on "size of the session, nature of the hair, areas and density that needs to be addressed" according to the user "KR", that is representing him here. I asked in which ranges the price can be, and the answer was that the "average" price is about 6 GBP, which currently is over 9 USD (!)

And if that`s the average price, then what`s the price on the upper end of the range?!? 12, 13 dollars??

That`s my point, I simply think he charges way too much.

 

Whoever is able and wants to afford that rate, I would not advise him not to go with Dr. Reddy, because I think the quality is very good, and that`s what counts in the end.

Yes.

 

Being from the UK I can confirm he keeps a relatively low profile - no silly marketing, just the way it should be.

Questionmark,

 

Did you mean to say "I would advise him to go with Dr. Reddy" instead of "I would not advise him to go with Dr. Reddy"? The "not" doesn't seem to make sense in the above context.

 

Best,

 

Bill

The results posted by the doc look good. But, are there any results posted by patients at all? Personally, I would rely on the results posted by patients for judging a doctors quality. It has been only a couple of weeks since we started seeing results from Dr. Reddy. Should we wait for some more time and see more patient results, including gradual progress, for recommending him?

Hi Bill,

 

I think I wrote "I would NOT advise him NOT to go with Dr. Reddy", so that`s a double negative, resulting in a positive, at least according to my intention and understanding in that specific syntatical context.

 

You`re right it would have made no sense, as I expressed my support in regards to the recommendation of Dr. Reddy in the same post.

I firmly believe in the fact that what you pay is what you get. The price of 6pound per graft is averaged based on what we charge for afro-carribean patients and non shaven patients and clients requesting to have work done in evenings and weekends.

 

Though most of our clients are very high profile and request for a lot of anonymity, this needs to be factored in as well. On top of this we have a highly trained and loyal team of technicians who expect to be payed meaningful wages in one of the most expensive cities in the world.

 

From our extensive experience in this industry no client of ours has chosen a competitor over us for the sake of the price. Becides, Dr Reddy is very emphatetic thowards hair loss sufferers and does his best to be accomodative with the price.

Recommend based on results and ethics. Not price. England is an expensive place and works on a different currency. It would be akin the belgium doctors dropping their price because Turkish doctors charge 2.5euro but labor and overheads etc are cheaper in Turkey. Just my opinion.

Agreed. Dr. Lorenzo and this doctor is giving the UK a big jump in the ht field. There may be a lot less flights to North America for transplants.

I am not sure if we have to take price into consideration to recommend a doctor on this Forum. The quality of his work looks really good to me based on the results presented here and I believe he should be recommended. There are more and less expensive doctors. We decide with whom to go based on other criteria.


An amazing experience (4002 grafts) with Dr. Koray Erdogan (ASMED Clinic).

    • You need to provide proofs of your words. I can provide all messaging with Kaan, where I was concerned every month sending photos, asking why bad results, discussing side effects, which I got from the drugs. To the future clients of this clinic be aware in case something goes wrong just wait for long messages of his team how you did not follow surgery instructions, did not care about the op, slept on the wrong side and so on:)  
    • What would be considered super dense packing? Anything greater than 50cm2?
    • Dredd, in your case medicines were mandatory because your androgenetic alopecia was miniaturizing also the donor area (it is a condition called DUPA and is more common than people think) and dr. Pekiner told you that many times. Not only you did not take Finasteride and Minoxidil as prescribed, you even started minoxidil on and off, that is worse than not taking it at all. You said you got Finasteride driven depression after 2 weeks of usage, which looks rather unlikely. You said you got side effects from Minoxidil and even from Xpecia that is a mild Saw Palmetto supplement. Dr. Pekiner also suspects you did not follow post surgery instructions, because you always behaved like you did not care, probably you were thinking that you just had to pay the money to the surgeon and get the results without being annoyed by medicines and post operative care. But the first month after the operation is the most important one. It is like a fat man not following post operative instructions after a liposuction and starting to eat pies and donuts and lift heavy weights the day after. Surgery doesn't work this way, you must follow and trust doctor instruction and advices, it is not like "this is your money doc, now I want the problem solved". At the end we have some suspects but we don't know exactly what happened, while you look so sure it was all dr. Pekiner's failure and like 2 weeks ago you started to feel the urge to inform the whole world.   Please don't worry about this Lixin. I also invite other dr. Pekiner's future patient not to fall prey of a free shooter only interested in destroying the clinic reputation. I will start posting all the clinic good cases in this forum as well, I just need a little time. Please check all the surgeries before and after both of Dredd's operations and you will see 3 perfect frontal dense packs and 1 norwood 6 reconstruction in 2 steps.   As I specified before, this case was not treated at an extreme density of more than 50 grafts per cm2, which is often called super dense pack. It was a "classic" high density of around 50 grafts per cm2. DHI method, that is basically a marketing term coined for incisions and implantations via implanter pens, shares the same philosophy of the stick and place technique used by dr. Pekiner, that is placing the graft immediately after opening the channel. Having said that, there are many other clinics, using different techniques, like lateral slit with custom blade made incisions, or placers instead of implanters, that can achieve great density all the same.
    • More than 12 months to start growing.  Body hair supposedly has different growth cycles.  Beard hair is different, thicker and should be placed back behind the hair line. 
    • There was a Bisanga case posted recently on the forum and the results looked great (especially given the guys starting point - quite phenomenal really). I believe Keser doesnt like using beard hair etc citing it doesn't look completely natural, while the results I've seen from Lorenzo are pretty good insofar as they offer patients some kind of improvement and conceal any issues. Rare to see many examples of it though. Surgeons seem to have vastly different approaches to it. Given fin has an effect on body hair I wonder if doctors request patients to stop taking the drug? I'd also be curious to know if different body hair works better on different regions of the scalp Good thread idea @Melvin-Moderator
