3rd h/t on the horizon

Recommended Posts

Any advice guys welcome. As some of you guys will know I have undergone 2 H/Ts in the past 3 years. Recently I have been contemplating a 3rd H/T. The problem I suspect with 3rd H/T is the laxity of the scalp??? If this is the case would F.U.E be approrpiate for the crown and frontal line area. I


I am also not sure, but I am told F.U.E success growth rate is a little less compared to STRIP surgery.

It really depends on the individual. I know my scalp is pretty tight after my second hair transplant but I'm sure I could do one more strip with scalp exercises.


Bill (Falceros) has had 4 strip procedures.


You are correct, the graft survival rate is typically lower with FUE as compared to FUT.


All the best,

Why is laxity more of an issue with the 3rd?



Hi, the reason being, my scalp feels a little tight or should I allow the surgeon to be the judge of that.? Also I heard the balding area seems to increase as you have more and more strip surgery as the scalp has to stretch.
