Unfortunately I can't say I know or have seen any of his patients in the flesh. All I have to go by are his videos which are amazing and push the barrier on what can be done via FUE. He does have quite a waiting list but it would not hurt to ask him, he responds to his emails personally as I have conversed with him several times.

Also in regards to FUT. It's fine that you do not want a linear scar, perfectly understandable. However I would say that when it comes to Doctors that do both procedures, their FUT results end up more impressive with greater yield. Most Doctor's nurses have been doing their jobs for 8 years or more and are looking through powerful microscopes whilst cutting.

FUE by itself won't do much for a NW5 or NW6 patient. If you want to keep your hair short then maybe try FUE along with SMP. Otherwise, go FUT. Strip scars are generally a non-issue if you go to a quality surgeon.

Depending on donor density, FUE alone could restore a NW 5 to a decent degree. NW6 would be pushing it however. Some individuals can obtain 7,000 grafts via FUE which is up there with FUT. Of course you would never be able to shave you head on a zero trimmer(with 8,000 grafts you probably wouldn't go below a size 2)without thousands of white dots but the same could be said for strip. But I'm no expert.

I beleive in advanced cases like Nw6 your best choice will be Dr. GHO's HST.
But also FUE is fine with the right doctor but your donor would be depleted before you cover all the bald area, but at least you can frame your face and keep your hair short.

Do we know how Dr. Gho manages to extract grafts without leaving a scar AND having the hair follicle grow back? Do he only extract a single follicle out of a multihair graft? I'm very curious as to how it is done.

Sam1870 - I can get down to a #clipper on the back and sides with no issue. I may even be able to get down to a #2 but have not tried yet.

I did get a trico closure.

hello Can't Decide, you said you can get to a # clipper but you did not put the #? Where did you have your procedure, and how do you feel your head after the transplant? do you fail pain or tightness and numbness? or you feel 100% normal in your head? I heard many complications can arise with the strip.

I meant that I can get down to a # 3 clipper. My head feels pretty normal. See my hair loss web page for my story. I had mine with Dr Rahal and it was huge at over 5000 grafts. My donor I suppose can feel ever so slightly sensitive at times but really nothing that presents a problem at all. I am sure with time, it will dissappear completely but again, remember that I had a monster procedure done.

FUE for Norwood 6 is not advisable, However there is only one doctor who would accept it without any argues and he is Dr. Jose Lorenzo. He performs only FUE and he is Damn good in it.
