Dr. Robert Dorin and True


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, thanks for letting me join this forum. A lot of important and valuable information for anyone regarding hair loss! 
 

My main question is, when comparing Dorin to True is one better then the other? When looking at before and after almost all are done by Robert Dorin. Who is, an amazing and skilled surgeon who constantly provides great results and has a consistent track record. However, I can’t find much of True here or on the website. A lot of the post op photos Dorin and True post on their website are what Dorin surgically does and posts here so that’s how I distinguish them. My main concern is, does it really matter between the two if I had to choose? I know everyone on this website reiterates “do it right or don’t do it all”.  Thank you for your help. 
 

23, Norwood 2, no thinning and in propecia.

So nice of you to ask…what some folks may not be aware of is that Dr. True has semi-retired and why you are recently seeing more examples of Dr. Dorin’s work.

And thank you for the kind words and admonished respect for their work and surgical talents.

Both have so many excellent results over the years. Either are a perfectly good choice. But yes Dr True simply doesn’t perform as many these days since being semi retired. 
However you mentioned you was 23, and It’s very likely they will not agree to doing a transplant until your at least 25.

Have you consulted with them yet ? Thanks 🙏

Hi sir, I have! I’ve always had a high genetic hairline with a big widow peek. I showed doctor child pictures of me. Unlucky, I’m also receding so it’s not helping. I talked to dorin he’s great, but true is the soonest surgery date. I’m just wondering if it really matters between the two. Because he’s semi retired, he still puts his all right?

Hi, so I should be in good hands with either doctors right? I’m just scared of having a failed procedure. I’m trying to do the right things once.

Totally in safe hands with either ! Although did you have any other clinics/Drs you were also considering ?

So they are ok doing a transplant at 23 ? Just curious as most clinics will wait until your at least 25.

Hi! I met with several clinics virtually. Mostly All from the restoration recommend physician portal on this website. 1/4  had 1 year wait times and were also beyond expensive which was out of my view. Other 3:4 were Hasson and Wong, feller, dorin, true, Konior, erdogan, motion clinic, asme clinic, dr diep, Lindsey. Lindsey and Konior said my hairline wasn’t bad and didn’t really need surgery but PRP and increased dose propecia. The rest all recommended grafts ranging from 800-2k. I narrowed it down to couple clinics who gave me the same grafts, hence why I’m looking at dorin. 
 

my age is definitely young for a HT, but with propecia, minoxidil I could prolong it for several years. My hairline from 20-23 hasn’t changed.

Yes, you are in good hands with either doctor…many of Dr. True’s patients come back for additional procedures and why he is “semi-retired”, not fully retired…he also is very passionate about maintaining his high skill level which  includes FUE and other progressive changes with instrumentation and surgical techniques.

What dose of finasteride are you on that they recommended an increase?

You have some top names in your list. Nice research 👌 would you mind posting pics of your current situation? Be interesting to see. Especially since the Drs you considered had differing opinions. Thanks 🙏

Yes, I’ll add them here. Sorry late response work been busy. My hair is thick dry and greasy wet. Last photo is less dry and true recession. My father had a Norwood 0. Moms family are 2/3.
