FUE in the UK - or fly to the states


#1

Hi
whats the opinion on having a 500-1000 fue done here in the uk (Rogers?)

Or is it worth flying over to the states for 2 weeks and having it done. If so whats the average cost per graft in the US and who’s the best over there

Have a good one

From what I have heard, Rogers does not have a good reputation. Search the posts by Haggis, who is a previous patient of Dr. Rogers. You might want to have a consult with Dr. Mwamba in Belgium. He is an excellent surgeon, and he is nearby.

Do you have any pictures you would like to post? What is your age?

UKGuy,

I have not found one good doc in the UK, and I have the scars to prove it. Dr Rogers is about the best of the bunch, but he is still learning FUE and I think you can do better. Try Dr Bisanga in Brussels he’s been pushing out good FUE results for ages now.

500-1000 is not too much, how old are you?

Dr. Armani is having private consultations in the U.K next week. Definitely set up an appointment with him and see if he thinks you are a good candidate. You can email soquinn@alviarmani.com for details.

If you want, email me at hairsite@aol.com, I can put you in touch with all the doctors, (including Dr. Rogers, Dr. Bisanga etc) they will let you know if you are a good candidate, how many grafts you need, and the cost etc.

Don’t rush. Talk to more people before you make a decision.

Fly to the states, when you are paying thousands for a HT, a few hundred for a airline ticket shouldnt be an issue. As for dr rogers he may have improved since i had my HT with him, but do you want to risk it ?

I have read your story, and maybe you are worse, maybe i am…not your doc mine was Wimpole St.

I agree with you on Dr Rogers mostly; All i will say is there are many good docs out there, Europe, Australia, US, find who is right for you, he doesn’t have to be the best promoted, the biggest voice on the net, the harder it gets the wiser you become sometimes…geography?? forget, if the best is on your doorstep you are lucky, if not do where you have to…be it UK, Europe, USA

I feel obliged to comment here even though I rarely post now as I looked into this myself for a long time. I did not have an HT because my donor is so poor but if I had then for my circumstances I would have had an FUE with Dr Bisanga in Brussels. I would recommend at least a consultation with him because not only do I think he is good but he is easy to get to, being in Brussels. You can do the whole trip via EuroStar in a day and he was prepared to do a weekend consultation with me. I found him and his associate Phil B. to be very good and they told me what I half knew already - that I am too poor a candidate for HT.

Anyway, make sure you do your research because ultimately you have to make the decision as it is your head :slight_smile:

Good luck.

Hi
Thanks for all the advice - hairsite, I’ll email for more info.

pretty interested in DR Bisanga due to his proximity to the UK - Is he really as good as the guys in the states?

I dont mind flying out to the USA if thas where the best surgeons are - the strong pound vs the dollar helps a lot.

I’m 38 yrs old by the way, hirloss has stabilised some 5yrs ago, - just need crown work done and some vertex - maybe some hirline if I can afford it. Guess I need a consultation to find out

All the best

Dont let location determine where you are going to get your ht done. I would say definitley fly to north america. All the top docs in the industry are here.

Good luck UKGuy, wherever you go.

For the sake of finding out go and have a look what Bisanga is like; but whatever I would look at least at 3 docs wherever they are. If nothing else it puts your mind at rest and you learn from each one…then decide. Get your short list then grill them with questions.

I would agree with that advice, but after much consideration Dr Bisanga was my first choice worldwide. That does not mean there are not other fine doctors, but regardless of distance he would probably have been my choice for FUE at the moment (things can change of course). For Strip it would have been Hasson and Wong (I never had a chance of being suitable for Strip). For BHT - right now - it is nobody.

The point is, however, that you make up your OWN mind, it is your head and you must decide. If you decide not to even consider Dr Bisanga it really has no effect on me at all, I am just giving you my honest opinion.

Edit: Note, the distance IS a factor, even if it is not a key factor, in my opinion a personal consultation is necessary and after an HT the distance from home may in the end have an indirect effect on your healing.

Since about 1995 the reality and success of FUE spread around the world because we focused on international clients spreading the news . It was about a new technique. It was also about acountability and patient control and interaction. A huge threat to the establishment at the time

We have many international clients who have become good friends from that period and it continues.

Distance is not the problem. It is what happens to you once you are in the chair.

Hi
Would you disagree then with comments that doctors here in the UK do not produce as high a quality of work as other parts of the world? With the strong Uk pound I willing to travel (plus an obvious self interest to get a good job done)

I travel to Oz every year for a month and have even considered your clinic - just didnt want to spend my vacation having surgery instead of catching up with friends.

On that note, is it possible to have FUE done without shaving the head so that it is so noticible in the weeks after, and if it isnt, how long would it be before I could socialise without it being obvious to people (considering I could have the fue done on arrival in Oz, and maybe continue with my vacation a week later seeing friends and family)

Thanks for any info

UKGuy,
if I went to Australia as you do then I would definitely have a consultation with Dr Woods or Dr Campbell (his sister). Getting the consultation if you live in the UK was my main problem, I do not believe Internet consultations are worth squat and it is a long long way to go for a consultation. They are the pioneers of FUE and would be on my short shortlist.

In fact as of June 2007 I would only consider 3 clinics for FUE and the Woods clinic is one of them, I have been watching their work for years.

I will stop posting on this thread now - promise :slight_smile:

Same here. My biggest concern is to make sure nobody knows I have hair transplant done. I saw Bender’s pics, he still had a lot of scabs after 1 week, I am glad he pulled it off at work but I am not sure if I will be that lucky.

il y a également une clinique allemande et une clinique de netherland q’il offre fue.
