Dr. Yarbourgh has been around a long time. I did not recommend him simply because i am not familiar with his work. remember that hair transplant surgery has been with us since the mid-50s. for the first 40 years, there was very little change in hair transplant surgery. guys in their 70s now, were the ones doing hair surgery during that 40 year span. over that 40 year period numerous cosmetic disasters occurred. even though they were making people look like freaks, they did not do anything to modify their results. It was only in the 90s when guys like shapiro, limmer, wolf, and myself came along that the hair transplant industry finally said "wait a minute" we can make some guys look better. then slowly the old guys mostly changed. some didn't.
recognize that when i recommend someone, i do it because i know you can expect consistent, natural results because i have seen the results and i know the physician's methods well. when i do not recommend someone, it does not mean they do not do good work. Perhaps they do and perhaps they do not. If i don't know what you can expect, i will not recommend that person. if i know the results will be bad, i will tell you to avoid that person or that there are better options. in the end, it is up to you who you elect to perform this irreversible procedure on your face. it will be a result you will live with for the rest of your life and you will see it every morning when you look in the mirror. travel should be the least of your concerns.
ask to see his results. if you like them, then consider a procedure with him.
