no doctor finalized yet, but i know some ppl who have been to a guy in HK and are very satisfied with his results. lets face it, asia is the center ive thought a great deal about doing this, but you are right i have not done extensive research. it seems that the actual procedure is becoming quite common place though, and it really isnt rocket science, so i think going to a reputable center is good enough, no need to track down the van gogh of HT.
since i only need 1200-1500, i thought FUE would be preferable. none of the doctors i've heard do that thou, one said that 80% of procedures are still done with strip. does that sound right? what is an 'acceptable' scar width if strip is done? also, for a class 2 hairline loss and strip procedure, is it advisable to shave the entire head after the procedure?
))N_)))N_)))N_) Yikes--"common place", "not rocket science","No need for Van goh." Very glad you found this forum.
Please please please do lots of research. Yes you are correct that you are likely safe if you go to a reputable clinic but my fear is what you define as reputable. There are likely only about a dozen or so docs worldwide that I would let touch my head. It does not matter that the size of the session is small. If it is bad--it will stand out horribly. If nothing grows--you have wasted a lot of cash.
Trust me-it really does matter about the physician and his/her techs. Don't make a mistake that could destroy the rest of your life. This is very serious stuff. Honest.
wow slight recession, you make it sound like your just nipping out for a take away, when you talk about going for a HT, have a look at some of the repair patients before you go out,take at least 6 months research time before you decide who to go with '''h;h;;h NCB
Take it from one who knows dude, picking the wrong doc can be life changing in a negative way. Browse the forums there are 100s of people seeking repairs through poor choices. As NN said there are only a dozen or so World Class clinics out there so good solid research is crucial. As for asia being the centre.....ive only heard of a few docs over there! Good luck bro youve come to the right place to start researching
