Beebs already provided an excellent response. Like he said they are both significant and prestigious in their own way. This, it's difficult to say which is more highly coveted. I suppose that's a matter of personal opinion. For instance would you rather drive a BMW or a Mercedes? Both are considered high luxury but each person has their own personal preference :-).

 

Maybe some of our physicians will chime in and provide their input.

 

Best wishes,

 

Bill

Both are incredible. All I know is that my doctor, Jim Harris in Denver, was the 2014 Golden Follicle recipient and his work and excellence shows why! I'm glad his medical colleagues around the world recognize just how good a hair transplant doctor he is!
