There is no perfect surgeon. Dr. Hasson has had negative reviews every surgeon has had less than stellar results or reviews. It’s important to speak with happy and unhappy patients. 

Truth. And look at both positive and less than positive results.

Guys,

Yeah tbh. There’s always those factors you can’t account for, sometimes it can be down to the physiology of the particular patient. When dealing with the human body there is no garantee with any surgical procedures

Now all I have to decide is whether to go FUT or FUE.  

This is going to sound contradictory. After having done both FUT and FUE, FUT is barbaric in comparison. Much more invasive, and the recovery time is literally like day and night. That said, I'm glad I did FUT first for the higher graft count, and then FUE for a smaller session. In my mind, it just makes sense to do FUT first so you don't 'moth eat' or thin out your donor site on the first pass with a high graft count. Buuuut... I wouldn't dissuade anyone from doing FUE either because you're not taking a chunk of scalp out of your noggin.

I’m having a video consultation with Rahal in two weeks. Waiting to hear back from HW. Will try to do in person consultations after I get my passport. I’m to the point of one or the other

Yeah - this definitely all makes sense.  I'm probably going to go the FUT route this first time for the reasons you state.  But I'm still a little wheezy about the more invasive nature of the procedure.  I never really considered FUT until I started seeing some of the results from guys like Hasson.  I always figured I would go the easier FUE route, so I am definitely having to adjust my mindset and get comfortable with something that's a little more invasive than originally planned.

There’s really no reason to choose FUE with the hair length you keep. FUE is better suited for guys who like to keep their sides really short. FUT is cheaper and just as good if not better.

I have had two FUT procedures with Rahal and I think it was the best thing I have ever done. I think you get better growth, faster and you don't get the moth eaten look at the back. The scar only becomes an issue if you plan to shave your head in the future (which I never would do). It's true that the recovery is worse with FUT, but it is a week out of your life. Who cares for a lifetime of great hair :)
