Need to pick a doctor from the below


#1

Hello Everybody

Iv decided 2015 is the year i finally have my first hair transplant. Im 38 and a norwood 3 and have been looking at these forums now for 2 years so i feel iv done enough research

I have narrowed things down to 3 doctors but i canot make a final choice. My choices are Dr Wood´s, Dr Arvind, Dr Poswal

I have my reasons for chosing each one and from my findings each has there pro´s and con´s which i will share. I would really love to know your opionion and if money was no issue and im willing to travel anywhere which one would you go for

  1. Dr Arvind - i am considering him because this site has voted him the best HT surgeon. Also i cannot find any site where someone has posted a bad result about him. However he is based in India and i dnt really fancy going to india for a HT, i cant explain why as i dnt know myself but for some reason i just feel afraid of being there not being able to speak the language. I do not like the fact that he does Strip as well and would prefer to use a doc who only specialises in FUE

  2. Dr Woods - he is the inventor of FUE so i am sure he will do a decent job. But thats all i think i will get ´decent´, i have never seen a amazing result from him and they are just on the quite good side. Most of the posts about him here are posted by his clinic and not individuals themselves. There are a few contreversies surrounding him such as his sister who used to be his partner now being struck of. Dr woods is very expensive as well

  3. Dr Umar - he is cheap, he is clearly the master of Body hair from the results i can see and even though i will not need body hair right now i think its good to build a relationship with a doc for long term. Problem with Dr Umar is that his results seem TOO GOOD and sometimes when something seems TOO GOOD its just not true. If he could really do some of the magic shown in some videos with body hair i am sure he would be more famous

Either way i dont think i can go wrong with any of these docs. They are all very good but id really appreciate your honest thoughts and opinions

My apologies to anyone or any docs if i have posted something wrong but i guess this is a public forum and its the best way to learn.

Many thanks

Good luck for 2015 fabs, out of interest did you investigate Dr Wesleys Pilofocus technique?

Dr. Umar really can do amazing things with beard hair, I know, I’ve had 5000 grafts extracted and placed on my scalp. Outside of Dr. Woods, no one else can do what Dr. Umar does with non-scalp sources.

While I totally agree that FUE is the route you should choose, I don’t know why you are worried about body/beard hair if you have enough scalp donor. As a NW3, I would think you can achieve your goals with scalp alone, and it should always be the first choice. I had to use beard hair because my scalp donor was exhausted.

Yep, 2015 is the year. Hair multiplication research is DEAD, there is absolutely nothing exciting on the horizon, so instead of going through another year of disappointment waiting for hair multiplication, I too am thinking about getting a hair transplant this year.

thank you to all of you who have replied. Im hoping for many more opinions as well

hairdar - thanks, i will research Dr Wesley but in the 2 years i have been browsing various forums i have never come across him

Wylie - Very interesting you have had so much body hair. Is there a link where i can see your before and after pics and read your history. I am only planning to use scalp hair but i think its always good to plan for the future. does anyone really believe in the next few years there will be some sort of cure or limitless doner hair? i dnt think so anymore and i need to plan for the future. I know if my meds stop working one day i will quickly end up a norwood 6 especially looking at my family loss

NMorHT - its sad but you seem right and i agree with what you say. who are you thinking of using?

also why is no one mentioning Dr Arvind when this website has voted him the best. I think i am ruling out woods, too far, too expensive and all results are average nothing stands out too much from him anymore

Thanks again to all of you

I don’t think Hair Multiplication was ever alive, fue hair transplants are great, good luck choosing your doctor:

Dear fabs,
Why should people be mentioning my name?

I am here for my patients and they connect with me on a personal level (facebook, email etc). They do not have to be here all the time “cheering” me up. They have their own lives to live.

The relationship I have with my patients is a lifetime commitment.

As for my doing strip as well as FUSE/fue… I prefer my patients to make their own educated choice. It would be unfair to force it upon them. Being able to do both the techniques as per my patient’s choice… I do not see as a negative. Just curious to know why you do so?

I would be glad to answer any queries you have.

Regards,
Dr. A

I might be wrong but I think Dr. A is voted best here based on number of results alone, you have to ask yourself if he is also providing the quality you desire, of course, not to say that the quality is not good or anything but only you can determine that.

I am starting to like ASMED more and more, there is not one bad pic, I just need to convince myself that it is worth flying all the way to Turkey. I would have gone to Woods but I can’t afford him.
