Thank you very much, Melvin. I too am very excited to see how things will evolve over the coming months. I will keep you all posted
Thanks for the comment hanginginthewire. I agree with you, initially my instinct was to go with a megasession of some sorts, but after having consulted with Dr. Bloxham, I agreed that doing two FUTs would be the best course of action. This first one to address the hairline and front to mid areas, and then another one, hopefully next year at some point, to address mid - back and crown areas. This strategy would then allow for FUE down the road, if anything more was necessary to add density or address any concerns. This seemed sensible to me.
Also, Dr. Bloxham explained how my hair characteristics (wavy/curly hair) yield better coverage with lower number of grafts than other hair types. I think there is some truth in that as well!
Good man for trying to work out any concerns you may have before the surgery , you are a guy who obviously loves his hair and you have been honest with yourself how it would affect you if you became a baldie ,so you are right to think ahead and maybe you may need more than one op ,given the price factor and the way you wear your hair maybe FUT is the way to go .
You are almost 40 and on FIN.
I think you should have enough hair independent if you choose FUE or FUT. The decision maker should be other factors. If you sport long hair then FUT is a good option. I think you could also partly shave the donor and go with an undercut.
