I want to undergo hair transplant surgery. I can only undergo surgery once, however, so it must be with the best. So, who is the best hair transplant surgeon practicing today? Help me find the “best” hair transplant surgeon.
Members frequently ask this question at our hair loss discussion forums. We pride ourselves on researching, reviewing, and recommending the most talented hair restoration surgeons practicing today; however, identifying one surgeon as the “best” practicing today is difficult. This is true for several reasons:
First, surgeons specialize in different aspects of hair restoration surgery. For example, say a surgeon specializes in follicular unit extraction (FUE). He may be considered the “best” FUE surgeon practicing today, but he wouldn’t be the first name mentioned for a female hair loss sufferer seeking strip surgery (Follicular Unit Strip Surgery).
Second, terms like “the best” are subjective. Hair transplant surgery is as much an art as it is a science. Many patients desire a specific hairline design or reconstructed whorl pattern in the crown, and connect with a surgeon using these designs. This surgeon may be the “best” for this patient. Another, however, may find this doctor’s hairline and crown design too aggressive and desire a different approach. For this patient, the second surgeon may be “the best.”
