Placing grafts in areas with hair

Recommended Posts

  • Regular Member

I have NW3 right now, but I know that I will lose the rest of the top of my hair (it has already begun). My doctor was suggesting 1800 grafts to restore my hairline and frontal third.


For the crown and back, I have heard two options: either A) use meds, which I don't want to or B) come back for another transplant in 2-3 years.


My question is, can't I just do a bigger procedure (~3500 grafts) to completely do the front again? Even though there is still hair in some places?

you have to be careful about shockloss, especially if you don't want to take meds, when transplanting into native hair with any density

also make sure you shave if possible for the procedure

go dense or go home
