Thx for the replies.

I have scheduled an appt with Dr Arocha so let's see how it goes. How do you guys manage the post-op if the doctor is in a different city?

Is it possible to get HT done elsewhere and post-op in the city of residence? Has anyone done it?

Never mind city, there are thousands of patients who have done their HTs halfway across the world. You should be fine doing you own post op care as all patients do. It's not an issue, your clinic should advise you accordingly.

Thx again.

From my research so far (and let's see what the doc says later this week); cost is around 6-7 USD per graft. So far 5000 we're looking at 30,000 USD. I'm letting that thought sink in. It's a big undertaking and adding travel cost will further increase the cost. Let's see how this journey goes but I really would like to avoid the scar.

Dr Bhatti is India just does FUE and i looked his website and he does FUE for norwood 5, 6 as well. Looks like I need to consult with a few docs. I might call up Rahal as well when he's in NY.

Two trips all in to see Dr Bhatti will cost you way less than half of your total figure there.

I'd also have a consultation with Hasson & Wong if I needed a mega-session as you do. They also do FUE now, however unsure if they can max a single FUE session at 2 or 3k grafts, absolutely more if its a mega FUT session. I just saw an advertisement that they're consulting in NY in March sometime.

Shera - Quick clarification. maybe this is a dumb question so work with me

Are you saying the grafts used in first procedure can be placed elsewhere (moving location?) or can they be "Duplicated" i.e. placed at the current location and a part/copy is moved to another location.

Does hair grow back when taken out with FUE or FUT in the location where it was taken out from or is it a permanent move ?

Sorry, what I meant was that you can get approximately a little over half of the grafts you got in the first procedure. Once a graft is out, then its out, gone! no duplication.

Therefore the grafts used in the first procedure are gone (relocated to your implantation area). The grafts taken in the second procedure are different grafts which have never been removed. It's important for some Docs not to go gung-ho and take too many in a single procedure for a variety of reasons.

I have been on Finastride for 2 months now...looks like shedding less. I want to be on it for another 6-9 months before considering HT.

I'm using tea tree oil and massage it twice a day. I also ordered something called "Grogenix Scalp Elixir" for 47 dollars yesterday...let's see how that goes. It comes from UK so will take like 3 weeks.

Anyway - Feedback from the members on this forum - Am I a Norwood 5 or 6 or even worse. That would help me getting better understanding of results from docs who have done that level of HT.

Based on the pictures youíre a diffused Norwood 6, Your hair looks better now that itís shorter more uniformed. Definitely allow finasteride at least 6 months to work, the good news is you still have a lot of hair just really miniaturized. Keep us updated on your progress and wait first before pulling the trigger on a surgery.

I am curious what really the difference between FUT and FUE is in terms of graft numbers.

I have been told to have a great donor area with dense hair. I am currently probably a NW 3 Vertex.
It's not horrible yet but I fear it will be eventually.

I really don't want to get a FUT scar because I'm worried about having to completely shave one day.
However if it means to have a lot more grafts available I'd reconsider.
I do think right now I'm at the top end of the grafts scale with a good donor area. But if I go completely bald I may need every graft I can get.
