I think shapiro are among the best in the world for strip yield and have some of the best donor closures. However i have seen too many failed FUE results from them over the years that i would not recommend them for fue. I do not believe they are of the same tier as the likes of Lorenzo, Bisanga, Erdogan etc in fue(on virgin scalps and repair patients). My opinion, everyone is free to have their own stance.

I might consider them for scar repair and touch up with FUE. But I'd leave the major FUE work up to the guys Mickey mentioned - Lorenzo, Bisanga, Erdogan and Feriduni.

 

Mickey, I haven't seen any 'failed' FUE results from Shapiro. Do you have any examples?

There were 3-4 patients online who posted last year stating they weren't achieving the expected growth but it was also early in the growth process. We have not received any pics from those patients yet. Those patients all had grafts extracted with the Artas. Keep in mind that when we used the Artas we went conservatively with the numbers because the Artas was new and we didn't want to "use up" much of the donor - basically, we played it safe like we do with any new technique. The grafts harvested with the Artas has to look good or we'll switch over to the non robotic technique. If all you need to do is add more grafts in the future is it a failed transplant? Consider the number of grafts planted when evaluating results. What makes a person happy with their result is subjective. Some are happy with lower density than others. We all know the donor is limited and what you do with them is very important.
