I'd like everyone to know that as of today I am working with IAHRS member Dr. Emorane Lupanzula of Brussels Belgium. I first met Dr. Lupanzula at the FUE workshop in Istanbul in June and we've been in discusions ever since. I was fortunate to see Dr. Lupanzula perform surgery since he was on faculty of the workshop which means he was a contributing surgeon sharing his technique live. Regardless of seeing him in surgery already I still put him through the ringer to make sure we are on the same page regarding patient care, etc. After speaking to patients and taking time to get to know Dr. Lupanzula I am happy to say I'm impressed with the man and his surgical approach.

I'll be heading to Brussels this Saturday, August 8th, to continue my hair transplant documentary series. You can read more on my blog, Dr. Emorane Lupanzula and the Hair Translant Mentor „¢

Onwards and upwards!!!

Thanks, BM. I'm looking forward to it too. The good thing is that I've already seen him perform surgery so that part of the review was completed before I even set foot in Brussels:) The rest should be a breeze so I expect there to be no surprises.

Congratulations Joe, enjoy your return trip to Brussels. I also was able to witness Dr Lupanzula's work and meet him at the FUE conference in Istanbul and was also very impressed with his technique.

Thanks, Bullitnut and Garageland.

So it's 4 a.m. here in Brussels as I write this so I'm being hit by a little bit of jet lag but I wanted to start off with an update. I arrived on Sunday at noon thirty after flying into Paris and then hopping a train to Brussels. The train ride is nice and you get to see the the French and Belgian countryisdes respectively. The reason for the train was that Air France, whom I chose to fly with this time around, has this in their offerings for shorter connection flights as an alternative. If you have a big bag and a backpack full of camera gear it is a toss up whether you should use the option because there is a lot of walking involved and there is no baggage transfer so you are hauling all of your bags yourself. After a nine hour cross Atlanctic flight, that can be a bit tiring but if you are coming for surgery and you don't have so much to haul around then it is easy.

Once I settled in Dr. Lupanzula came to the hotel to see me and we wound up going to the clinic. It is a nice place and completely modern and when I say modern I mean he had the idea in the design for it to look "futuristic". I see what he's going for with the aesthetic and I think it works. One thing I've already noticed about Dr. Lupanzula is that hair restoration surgery for him is actual surgery and he takes cleanliness VERY seriously. I mention this because I take it seriously too and is one of my top issues to consider when I am reviewing new doctors. Unfortunatley I have found that I actually take the subject more seriously than some doctors that I have reviewed so even though Dr. Lupanzula and I have had long discussions about this subject over the past six weeks this is something that gives me a bit of relief to see in person.

I'm in the clnic in a few hours to meet the staff and film a surgery so I think I'll give some updates on my findings on this thread. FYI, the patient of the day is, according to Dr. L, a mixed race patient with African genetics so it will be nice to watch and film the FUE extractions. Stay tuned.

I'm on a short break from filming and observing Dr. Lumpanzula perfor an FUE surgery today and so far I am really happy I came here. Dr. Lupanzula has been explaining his process and approach and how he's dealing with the grafts on today's patient. Here are some photos I took on breaks from filming.

Well, that's a wrap. I'm heading back home to Vancouver. I have to say, this was a great trip. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Dr. Lupanzula and his staff and I would iike to publicly thank him for his hospitality. Expect a full report in the coming days along with various videos.
