Dr. Rahal vs Dr. Hasson (strip scars)

Recommended Posts

Both doctors are well known for their FUT mega session and high- density HT, but in terms of strip scars who is better in producing some most undetectable and minimal scars?

It's tought to say. Consult with them both and go with whoever you feel more comfortable with (this is important). In terms of the scar, they both produce some of the best from what I've seen. I don't think you can go wrong either way it's hard to say which one is "better"

Hi Readeal, I read some of your posts, looks like you experienced some issues with your strip scar. It is too wide and was placed too low in your donor area. I can really feel your pain. May I ask what if you have not gone to your previous Dr, would you be comfortable with the doctors I mentioned in terms of scar or you would go for FUE

Frankly, the scar will be minimal whichever of these two doctors you choose. I represent Dr Rahal and I know that he produces very minimal scars, but having been around this scene for many years I know that H&W are also one of the best in the business. Just be aware that your own physiology will play a part in your eventual scar. Scalp laxity is important and both doctors will emphasize that performing exercises to increase scalp laxity will be an important pre-op step for you to take before your procedure.

Based on what I have experienced, I would never reccomend FUT to anyone. I would go for FUE. In my opinion, there is no reason to go FUT in 2017 to me it is an outdated procedure. Its hard to understand the pain of a strip scar until it is actually on your head and you come to terms with it is indeed forever. You may never get the option of cutting your hair short, a freedom that to me as I've discovered is so important and I would trade anything for. If a person has never ever cut their hair short and knows 100% they never will, then these are the doctors you would probably want to go for strip. But keep in mind every doctor has some bad scars and nothing is 100% but they do seem to be your best bet if you were hell bent on FUT. The fact that you are even asking the question "who produces a better scar" and asked about potentially going FUE let's me know the scar does worry you. You literally sound like me before I made the mistake of going FUT. I might catch some flack on here for being against FUT as everyone on here pushes their own agenda, but like I said I wouldn't reccomend it to anyone. Dont take any chances if you know the scarring might bug you. I literally was in the same position and thought "it won't happen to me if I go FUT" and I literally got one of those wide scars you see on the internet from a doctor reccomended on this site. I can never tell someone to get the same procedure that has caused me to go through what is has emotionally. I've also talked with many other patients in the same position as me and they all feel the same. Go FUE. Literally 50% of FUT patients are unhappy.

if you heal well with scars/sports injuries etc in general, imo, you probably have good physiology. Even then your “physiology” could be blamed in case of bad scar or etc. by some docs or their agents.

 

Sometimes it is good to ask a negative question for private answer. You will probably generate more honest responses. You can ask if users had any unsatisfactory factory scarring or results from docs you list or any other doc and to pm you privately if they dont want to answer publicly.

 

Definitely see if you can consult with any FUT surgeons that have dealt with many repair cases as they probably have experience with scars and scar repair.

 

This procedure is one that can make you or basically fuck your life up.

 

Best of luck on your procedure and wish you a great recovery.

Not true.

 

And both of my Rahal scars were/are pencil-line thin. Hasson scars that I’ve seen are remarkably thin as well. These two docs do this all day, everyday man. They’re elite. World class.

 

Can you say that about Rosanelli?

I agree they are elite. If you're going FUT they are probably who you want to go with based on what I have seen. I still think that about 50% of FUT patients are unhappy. Then again not all those patients go to a Hasson and Wong or Rahal but still strip is very unpredictable.

Although going to elite FUT specialists such as H&W or Rahal will more likely increases the chance of a satisfactory result in terms of both scar or growth yield, I agree with you that nothing is 100 percent. HT or any cosmetic surgeries itself isn't without risks in nature. If we are being conservative, prepare for the worst, in my opinion, it is the best to go for FUE instead because, in the worst situation, we might end up with a very low or even zero growth yield and a strip scar in the back of the head for the rest of life. On the other hand, FUE is less risky that you will have one less thing(scar) to worry about if the growth yield turns out to be very low.

Even the best doctors have produced some bad scars. With FUE, I seriously have trouble locating FUE scars even with the hair at a 0 guard. Even if you do locate them after scrutinizing the scalp they look cosmetically acceptable. I honestly wouldn't even be able to tell someone had FUE scars at a even at a 0 guard if I was just casually walking by someone. Now I'm not saying you should assume you can cut to a 0 with FUE, but many patients can and feel comfortable with it. FUT scars stick out like a sore thumb for many patients even at 4-5 clip. In my case I need at least a 6 or 7 guard to cover it. Nobody signs up for that shit man but it can just happen. Obviously, there is also some bad FUE results out there too and that can also be a problem that may be as difficult to deal with as a strip scar. For me personally, I would pay $100,000 cash to just reverse my FUT procedure. Take the hair back...just get this scar off my head and back to the way it was. Unfortunately, thats not how it works. There are SO many repair patients looking to get their strip scars fixed it's ridiculous which is why I cannot reccomend it to anyone. I've just talked with/connected with too many other FUT repair patients who feel they made the worst mistake of their life to vouch for the procedure. For some people they do it and they have no problems and honestly good for them. But like Sean said above it can fuck your life up especially if the scar is something you feel may concern you.

I'm afraid I couldn't disagree more. FUE is done a great disservice to its own reputation when it is promoted as the most state of the art or as a scarless procedure.

 

Because it is most certainly neither of those things, surgery will scar you, period.

 

FUE is wholly inappropriate for large cases in the view of many top surgeons, and any surgeon worth his salt should be able to perform both FUT and FUE, because there is a time and a place for both procedures.

Like I said for many people they get it and it's no problem and they're happy. On the other hand, some people get it and it ruins there lives. Seems to usually be one of the extremes. I'm just speaking for myself as coolboy asked which one I would opt for I would rather not get surgery at all than go FUT. This is a cosmetic procedure and there is nothing cosmetically pleasing with even the best FUT scars. You cut your hair short enough and even the casual observer will notice it. Can't say that about the best or even above average FUE scars. I've shown my friends and family pictures and videos of FUE scars at a 0 clip and they don't see anything. They don't even know what they are looking for. Yeah it's there, but to the untrained eye, which the majority of the world is, they can't spot them. Just my 2 cents though. Then again, I enjoy the option of wearing my hair short. Agree to disagree.
