Hey all, I've been a viewer on this forum for a while, but I'm feeling a little lost with my hair loss decision. I am a Norwood 4 or 5, and have been losing hair since I was 20 (I am 31 now). I've been told by several doctors that the crown is a lost cause, but that they would recommend a 3k to 4k FUE session to restore the frontal hairline and work back a little from there. (2 pics attached).
I had scheduled a transplant with Hassan and Wong but it'd been delayed several times due to travel restrictions and I am guessing I'd have to wait another year before a surgery in Canada would be possible given the pandemic (I am based in Boston). I had also eliminated Bernstein and Konior due to cost.
I've narrowed down my selection to True & Dorin, Lindsey, and Bloxham. I'm confused as to who to go with and also if I should even get a transplant given that the crown is a lost cause. Additionally, if people were to put these docs into tiers for frontal FUT sessions, would the three doctors mentioned above all be roughly the same? I have seen all of their work, but am not sure who to go with.
