Hello archiej99,

Those advertisements you see on the newspapers, is not hair transplants. But hair loss solution, like Yunnam (think of the options given by a Sliming Center & a Plastic Surgery Clinic - totally different).

There're only 2 doctors who do hair restoration in Singapore (that i know of), Dr. Eileen Tan of Changi General Hospital & a indian doctor practicing in East Shore Hospital (I forgot his name).

If surgical hair restoration is intended, Thailand is a better choice; The procedure cost range from SGD2,090 to SGD4,180 depending on the no. of hair grafts needed.

if you're interested to know more, including the procedure & pre-ops care etc. drop me a note.

Sincerest regards,

Kekeke, when i wrote an article for hair transplantation for thailand; i was commenting on the lack of skills in Singaporean surgeons. I was told by the Thai surgeons, that it will not be nice to write that.

Few surgeons can do that procedure in Singapore, i never heard of good experience with hair transplant in SG; any1 wants to share a positive story of hair transplantation in SG?

Because it's the simplest, and fastest; the reason for un-satisfying results could be that - it is not common for an area containing enough hair to be immediately adjacent to a completely bald area.

Strip method, is better restricted to injury cases.

Does it mean the Thai surgeons don't use the strip method? Which method do they use? Follicular unit extraction??

Strip Method VS FUE

Postby katlheenlim » Fri, 21 Dec 2012 5:39 pm

With FUE, the follicular units (naturally occurring hair groups in twos or threes) are removed using a metal instrument with sharp edges which has a hollow middle. Unlike FUT, where a strip of scalp is removed before each hair graft is extracted through a high-powered microscope, FUE has a more conservative approach resulting to less healing and a faster recovery time.

I believe that there are now surgeons in Singapore who are using FUE technique for better result. Check Google. :wink:
