  1. Hi guys, I am asking for advice on which hair transplant doctor to go with? I currently reside in the UK and have decided to bite the bullet and go with a hair transplant doctor who is based in Europe, as i will not be able to travel further due to the logistics of my job. If possible, I would also like to know which norwood pattern I am currently displaying? A consultant for Dr Arshad mentioned that I am currently at level 4/5. I have contacted the following doctors so far and they have recommended me: Lupanzula - 2500-3000 graphs predominantly in the front & mid-scalp Feriduni - 2000-2600 graph into the temples, hairline zone and central core Arshad - 2000-3000 graphs into the frontal and mid scalp zone In terms of my family history my mothers side displayed little to no hair loss while my fathers side is a little more extensive. My father has a diffuse pattern with some loss in the crown, a pushed back hairline and visibly thin hair when wet. Despite this he still has a set of hair and there appears to be no baldness on his side of the family either. Both my grandfathers had covered their hair with turbans so I was never able to see how their hair loss progressed. In terms of medication, I am currently taking finasteride and biotin to combat the hair loss and I am considering using saw palmetto and a derma roller in order to thicken up my existing hair. I understand that I am on the young side with getting a hair transplant. However, I would like to keep my hairline conservative, implant grafts into the crown at a much later date and focus predominantly on the frontal two thirds. Thanks
