Looking for the best hair transplant surgeon!

Looking for the best hair transplant surgeon!

Postby straightbridge » Sat Oct 12, 2013 11:10 am

I live in the Wash., D.C. area. I had 2 bad hair transplants in 2005 and again in 2008. I made the mistake of going back to the same surgeon who butchered me. I am willing to travel if necessary. I've heard that Dr. Lindsey is pretty good, but I think there are even better surgeons out there. I've heard good things about Dr. Shapiro in Minnesota and Dr. Hassan in Vancouver, Canada. I have a good amount of hair on my head, but the hair on top sticks straight up. It is a constant battle for me to make it lay down. Does Dr. Shapiro put the hair in on a slightly forward angle? I think that would help camouflage the hair that sticks straight up. Another concern I have is the hair line in the front. To me it looks like I had a hair transplant, due to it looking to straight and perfect. And my last concern is the 8mm scar in the back of my head. I would like to get that fixed at some time. How long of a procedure is it to cut out the donor area in the back of the head for hair transplant surgery? It seems like my previous surgeon ripped it out in 5 minutes. I've heard that this procedure takes some time. I am looking to get this procedure done sometime in the next few months. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

Looking at a couple of the names you mentioned I assume you are already a member on this site.

Corrective hair transplant repair requires extensive experience, expertise, the right equipment, techniques as well as an "artistic eye." Do your due diligence, but consider that we have had excellent success with a minimally-invasive FUE approach to corrective and repair work for many, many years. Using an FUE approach, we can actually remove and redistribute any previously transplanted "offending" hair follicles in your hairline one at a time making it soft and natural, not straight.
FUE will also not increase the amount of linear scarring in the donor area. It also allows us to harvest more hair from "good" donor areas and leave other, depleted areas alone. FUE can be used to transplant hair back into the scarred areas as well (with scalp hair or other sources, like beard).

first go and see a doctor, then take a vitamin suplement rich in zinc (under medical supervision), try to eat a balanced diet, plenty of fruits, vegetables and proteins like salmon, drink a lot of water, and personally when I experienced hairloss I started to take a japanese algae thing that was very good, but I cannot remember its name, google it and you'll probably find something

good luck!

Just go to google and choose the right surgeon based on his/her popularity and reviews.
