    Default Body hair transplant: surgeon options worldwide?

    I only know Dr. Umar and Dr. Woods.

    I live in Portugal. Last year I went for a consultation with Dr. Bisanga. He purpose me FUE with Strip. I asked him for body hair transplant and he wasn't very happy about it but he said would use some beard hair. I ended up not doing it because I didn't want to have a scar with strip.

    I'm looking for a good body hair transplant surgeon. I read mixed reviews about dr. Umar and dr. Woods. I guess every doctor has good and bad reviews and besides that I have to ended up choosing one. I'm looking for a good body hair transplant surgeon worldwide but an European one would be better.

    I contacted dr. Umar last month and we already exchanged few emails.
    I want to do 9000 grafts from body hair. I sent him pics of my beard, chest and abs and dr. Umar said I have very good donor area on my beard.
    Would be better to do a 9000 grafts implant all at once? I mean in a course of a week length? Or should be better if I do 4500 grafts first and then after +- 10/12 months I do another 4500 grafts?

    I think the 4500 graft option, and then another 4500 graft surgery is as far better option. I would never recommend someone do a 9000 graft session all at once. And 4500 grafts in one session is still a large session.

    Have you already exhausted your scalp donor?

    do a small procedure first to evaluate growth, i would not go for 4-5000 in 1st procedure..
    have 1000 or less and see what happens

    There are many FUE docs who do bht, nowdays most of them do it,
    imo its not Dr its actually BHT itself that is the problem and even tops docs get mixed results,


    good thing abt bht is if you dont like it you can always shave it off, no white dots or scars

    Yes. Due to a bad fue that I did with a very bad doctor I have now a poor donor area. That's why I'm doing bht.

    A procedure with 1000 grafts won't even be noticeable. Don't you think?
    I went to dr. Bisanga in Belgium last year and he didn't want to do BHT.

    what im trying to say is that you wanna have small test procedure first,

    you wanna know wht % of transpanted bht will grow?

    would you be happy if 20-30% grows?


    you can go ahead and go for 9000 grafts but if only 3000 grows you would be very unhappy...

    what pisses me off is when doctors lie that 90%+ will grow

    Bisanga is good doc he rejected me too,
    but he was the only one who rejected me..mens he cares and i rather be rejected then promissed something that cant be achieved

    Feriduni is good, Cole too.

    Umar and Woods oversell bht, they often treat it like first resort not last..
    IMO BHT shd always be mixed with scalp hair and used as a filler, not always practised by these guys and using only chest hair should be illegal

    Last year I went to Dr. Bisanga in Belgium for a consultation. He recommended me combination around 2800-3000 with Strip and 800-1000 with FUE but you need to come off steroids 3 weeks prior to surgery because of potential healing issues and no body building activity for a full 6 weeks after surgery to make sure the suture line won't stretch. Today I sent dr. Bisanga updated pics of my scalp and he said that "Your scalp donor looks very weak as you say and worse than a year ago from photos.
    You do not have much chest hair and therefore only beard hair is available and this cannot be used for the hair line, so in essence a very large area to cover and in all probability not a venture that will meet your goals and many thousands of grafts would be needed over a lot of surgery as we limit beard grafts to 1,000 grafts at a time.

    So, very expensive, long road, and not guarantee we could get the numbers to reach your goals, also the problem of creating a soft hair line is not possible with beard grafts.

    So what should you do? For us, do nothing. You look natural and to be honest you are a poor candidate for surgery.

    If you wish to see others then of course those are options but make sure to see people in the flesh who have had extensive work with beard.

    Debatable if your goals can be met with beard only as would take as said a lot.

    Personally we feel best to do nothing, but others have different protocols so we cannot speak for them. We just do not want you to pay a lot of money to us and we do not reach your goals.


    Please accept our apologies that we do not feel in good conscience to offer you surgery and wish you all the best in your decisions should you decide to proceed or no elsewhere."

    Of course I'm VERY sad to hear this from BHR clinic.
    In the other hand I sent the same pics to dr. Umar and he said "Thank you for sending the photos. You have enough head, beard and body donor supply to allow for any level of restoration from the options I have given you."

    What you guys think I should do?!?
