Unfortunately hair transplant clinics in the UK have a bad wrap for strip surgery, FUE is still a new harvesting technique and some of the strip surgeons who have tried to offer FUE don’t have the knack, ability or experience for this type of surgery or the clinic prefers to do strip harvesting because you can do more operations in a day (with FUE it can take all day for a single session)

Our surgeon is Dr Theo Vernikos an FUE specialist since 2003, he has carried out nothing but FUE and has trained other doctors in this specialist field.

Yes, before everybody freaks out, he did work at Norton clinic, but did NO strip surgery. (Norton Clinic has a bad reputation for poor strip surgery on most forums)

Dr Vernikos has an exceptional ability for accurate and fast FUE.

I have worked with Dr Vernikos since 2006 and we started FUE Clinics in Solihull in April 2008 because we were unhappy with the reputation Norton has for its strip surgery.

Please don’t just believe me or the other many posters on forums, book an appointment to see Dr Vernikos and see for yourself, me and talk with his patients, they all say the same thing. FUE Clinics offer a great service with no pressure, pain or scarring. Just honest options.

Hope this helps, but remember do your research and then do some more. Most forums will just talk about a handful of clinics in the USA, but you don’t have to go there FUE in Solihull is when it comes to FUE the best in the UK/Europe.

I had a consultation with you while you was with Norton.I won’t start off bashing you.

What I’d like to see is some evidence to back up,what you are saying,as I did research on Norton Clinic,back then after consultation,whats online scared the sh*t out of me,that I might of been that close.
So how about some photos,to back up what you are stating.I was only interested in FUE back then - I was offered a appointment with your FUE doctor,who back then did work occassionally for Norton.

Saying all this.I’ve over researched,and I’m still not sure an hair transplant is the right way to go at all,and thats not a dig at you,but all hair transplant clinics,worldwide.Obviously I’m not a twenty something crying out for hair to fit in.

Birmingham would be a hell lot easier for UK patients.So hopefully you can talk the talk,and back it up.Not just get your postings removed after a bit of bashing,which I assume you will get.

I notice that you charge per hair, instead of per graft, which I think is misleading - and in fact just like DHI. Dr Vernikos was a key player in yup, you guessed it, DHI, and as no other clinic is mentioned I assume was trained there. FUE Clinics has a clinic in Greece too.

Is there any relationship at all between DHI and FUE Clinics ?

I went to a seminar for DHI, I thought they had real potential, however, their end results kept not showing up on the boards and the occasional one we saw was in my view very unimpressive. The doctor I spoke to at the seminar spoke extremely disrespectfully about HT Internet forums and anybody who had an opinion that differed from his own on those forums.

There was a chap called LEE_S who had a massive FUE procedure with DHI and had tons of coverage of his before and immediately after recipient site pictures but then disappeared without trace when it came to showing his results. The rumour was that he was apparently too depressed to come back on the boards and show his ‘results’.

Then there was the whole debacle of the ‘apparent’ internal mail (I believe a representative of DHI denied it was genuine) that got put out on the forums and the subsequent resignation of Peter Mac.

So none of this augurs well in my opinion.

Spot on I forgot that Dr Vernikos used to work for DHI.I remember Jeremy telling me that at the consultation I had in rented office in Birmingham.At the time I had an online consultation with DHI - They came over like sharks as well.They denied knowing of one of there doctors doing work for others.DHI had annoying sales tactics cold calling price matching,etc.

The whole episode scared the sh*t out of me.They came over as total con artist.Jeremy cold called,but I will not say he was as annoying.I’ve since learned to accept it a little better now.I shave my head,but I would still like hair.

So yes lets see the pudding Jeremy,photos,clips,etc - Talk the talk

synthetic if I was you,until further proof I’d consider going to Belgium,perhaps.Whatever you do be careful and do proper research

The lack of results posted online from UK clinics tells you all you need to know.

Choosing a doctor because of convenience is a huge mistake!!

yeah you guys have put me sraight , im gona go with Dr Bisanga and you are right about the before and after photos a real joke.

Thanks, for not giving me a going over. (Verbally) If your still not sure, my advise is do nothing until you are; visit clinics and see what they have to offer, but don’t book anything until you are 110% sure it’s the right thing to do.

I know it sounds stupid, but a hair transplant is for life, it never fails once it grows, and if you get a bad one, it’s forever!

I have patient photos for you to see and patients who you can meet or watch their videos, all have had FUE with Dr Vernikos. All are very happy with the results.

we only give a price comparison per hair £2.50; as you will know hairs grow in clusters of two or three, so we actually average the cost to £5 per graft. whether is one, two, three or four hairs. It actually works out better for the patient, because it is simple to work out.

There is NO connection between DHI and FUE Clinics; Dr Vernikos worked with DHI until 2006 when he came to the UK to work and has worked with me since then.

Don’t know about this, so I can’t comment.

Is Peter Mac “BIGMAC” who posts on most forums?

There goes what more do you want.Make an appointment do not accept photos,ask to see a couple of patients.
When you’ve done that report back to us.
