Do you need to specify the Norwood level you want?

Hi Guys…


I was just wondering…


When you send photos to a hair surgeon and ask for an estimate on the number of grafts that you need, is it a good idea to specify what norwood level you want to be restored to? Norwood 0, 1 or 2?


If you don’t specify is there a standard level that most surgeons aim restore to?


This all just hit me after one surgeon I contacted mentioned restoring my hairline to a norwood 0 which is certainly the last thing I would want.. I don’t want to look like a little kid.


I’d appreciate your thoughts…

Hi Ricky,


While I don't think you need to specify a strict Norwood level, it would be good to share your hair restoration goals. Usually, patients and physicians work together to create a plan that is both acceptable to the patient and obtainable/realistic for the doctor.
