Welcome to the forum, buddy! South Africa huh? Lekker! I got back from an 18 day trip to ZA last year, and fell in love with your country.

There are a lot of great physicians who are recommended on here, and who perform terrific hair restorations with minimal loss patients such as yourself. A lot of the surgeons perform excellent dense-packing, and outstanding results.

Have you started to make a list of physicians you're interested in? That's usually a good starting point. Also, do you plan to have an FUSS or an FUE procedure. You said you have had 2 transplants before.....how many grafts were used in total, and where did you have the work done.

I think your hair looks great, but you came to the right place if you're looking to find a surgeon who will achieve the results you desire.

Welcome again, and please keep us posted with whatever it is you decide to do!

I'm not completely sold on Dr. Umar, and he would never be my first choice as far as FUE is concerned (he does exclusively FUE procedures) He is more of a specialist in last option patients who have nowhere else to go because they have exhausted their donor supply. That being said, if you are sold on FUE, Turkey has the best surgeons for the price. Dr. Doganay is the only one officially recommended on this site (2euros/graft), although Dr. Demisroy has quite a large following of fans and is 1 euro/graft. Dr. Erdogan has some INCREDIBLE results that have just been posted on the "Result posted by clinics" section on this forum. They are recent and I would definately check them out if I were you. I believe he charges 2.5 euros/graft. If you want the best of the best and money isn't an option, Dr. Lorenzo does the best FUE in the world at 7.5 Euros/graft in the UK and Spain (I'm actually not entirely sure he still does work in Spain). There are of course Dr Bisanga and Dr. Mwamba in Belgium, but I usually toss them off my list because. although they are great, they are more expensive than the Turkish doctors named and results aren't any better. In fact, those Turkish doctors are exclusively FUE, so they know what they're doing.

Don't consider North America if you're going FUE. Dr. Rahal would be the only one I would really consider for FUE. North America has wonderful FUSS doctors. Dr. Feller in New York, Dr. Kornior (my personal favorite) in Chicago, Shapiro brothers in Minnesota, Dr Hasson and Dr Wong and Rahal in Canada. They will give you state of the art results with FUSS.

Of course, there are other doctors, but those are pretty much the only ones I consider. I maybe subjective.

I had fantastic results with Dr Villnow and Dr De Reys. Check out my journal!
