View Full Version : European based surgeons

07-29-2014, 11:51 PM
Hello folks and thanks for making this community a great resource of information.

I have decided I will definitely get a transplant in about 6-9 months. I am currently a Norwood 6 (29 male, balding since 21) and as I am in Ireland I would prefer a European based surgeon.

From reading a lot of forum posts and articles the names that pop up repeatedly are Feriduni and Bisanga.

I have tried to research surgeons however aside from pictures which I will never put much faith in, considering what can be done with Photoshop, and not having enough medical knowledge to evaluate other factors the best I can do is go with the general consensus of who the best surgeons are.

There is a lot of information out there of peoples personal experience with surgeons which is a good way to judge each surgeon and procedure but there seems to be a lack of information on post op medication.

First and foremost, will I have to take medication every day for as long as I want to maintain my new hair and stop further hair loss?

I was reading on another large hairloss forum that a 58 year old man stopped taking Finasteride 13 years post op as he thought it was causing erectile dysfunction and within 4 weeks he experienced massive hair loss.

I would appreciate it if someone could point me in the direction to get more information on pre and post op medication even if it is not a one size fits all situation.
