Hair Transplant Mentor
This question tells me when someone hasn’t been paying attention. To be so staunchly dead set against FUE procedures in general, in this day and age, with so many dozens of results popping up on what seems to be a weekly and monthly basis would be nothing short of ignorant, arrogant and even dimwitted. My position and my message on FUE and FUSS respectively has been consistent. I still believe FUSS offers the highest yield (growth) graft for graft compared to FUE in similarly capable hands. However, the disparity between the two is so miniscule that it hardly makes any difference to the FUE patient. Anyone that is seeking to have FUE is doing so for one reason and one reason only; because they do not want a linear strip scar. There is no other reason and an FUE patient would not be able to detect a deficiency of a few percentage points compared to FUSS had they chosen FUSS instead anyway. Furthermore, at this point, a donor scar is not worth risking if FUE can do the job nearly as well.
No, I won’t, because I feel that surgery is a last resort. I can give you my opinion on who YOU are considering but I’ll start by asking you why you have considered whomever you are considering to begin with. I’ll look at your information and review what you’ve been told by doctors or consultants and I’ll translate what it means in plain English. I’ll ask you questions that will challenge why you think you need surgery and I’ll ask you questions that will challenge what you were told by the doctor. My job, as I see it, is to make sure you know what you are getting into and maybe even talk you out of surgery if necessary. No one needs to have hair transplant surgery unless they’ve already had surgery and need to have a repair like I did. If you want me to look at your case you’ll need to submit the information you were given in your consultation as well as any photos that were taken. If I don’t have this information up front then I’ll just be asking for it anyway and I can’t tell you a thing about your case until I have this information. This means that if you want my input, send the information up front. It saves time for both of us:) I’ll also speak to your clinic on your behalf if you are having post-operative issues or concerns and you feel you are not getting anywhere in your discussions.
