    The above article was published on behalf of Dr. Lindsey and he does not directly receive comment notifications.

    Let me begin by congratulating you on your recent FUE and your happiness with the results thus far. While I do agree the FUE is a great option for many balding men, I disagree with your statement that FUE is “the superior technique” as this implies that it is better in all circumstances and under all conditions.

    Additionally, I don’t understand your comment that FUE allowed you to “return to an active lifestyle which FUT would not have allowed”. The vast majority of hair restoration patients today are still undergoing FUT and continuing to lead active lifestyles. Perhaps you meant to say that the recovery time was shorter, allowing you to participate in an active lifestyle more quickly?

    Our Managing Publisher Bill has had more than 9,000 grafts via FUT, which allowed him to return to his active lifestyle confident and with almost a full head of hair. Given his degree of hair loss, FUE would likely not have produced the same results.

    Best of luck and happy growing!

    Hi Dr. Lindsey. Interesting comments about FUE. I think a good surgeon can overcome these issues though.

    I’m 4 months in an FUE procedure. I was at the Harley Street Hair Clinic in London – a practice which surgeons were not recognised in the forums but I saw Wayne Rooneys results and thought I’d give it a try. Four months in and I’m really thrilled with the progress – 80 yeild showing already and thickening up nicely.

    I actually think FUE is the superior technique (being more discrete) done properly albeit more expensive, it allowed me to return to an active lifestyle which FUT would not have allowed.

    Granted if you need 5000+ grafts done then you should probably start with FUT but I definately don’t think FUE should be discounted on the bases of your reasons alone and should stand up as a perfectly good approach in it’s own right.
