Dr. Nader 4350 grafts 06/17 & 6/18

Recommended Posts

Personally I feel that the hairline is too straight, and too large of an area was covered with only 4,350 grafts. A better strategy would have been to cover only the frontal third and perhaps add some density in the mid-scalp area to ensure a thicker end result. A second pass could then have focused on the crown. 

The hairline design was also very ambitious. A more conservative hair line similar to a recent Dr. Ball surgery documented on youtube may have been a better approach.

Great response in posting your up to date comparative photos of your centre parting. You are in a better position than you were pre HT in regards to visuals. You have more hair.

Considering the graft count, is the outcome sufficient? If not why?

As I mentioned I feel that the hairline is too low and too straight especially considering the 4350 grafts used. Don't get me wrong, that is a mighty fine number of grafts, but the scalp is fairly large too. Density was always going to be a concern. At what density was your hairline and behind implanted at?

The ludicrous and unhelpful posts from .... I can't even remember his name.... are as useful as Bill Gates on a Mackintosh. Ignore him. He went from 10% to 5 % and who nows what is next.

It does look disappointing, but you have much hope yet and with a solid subsequent HT, you can rebuild/reinforce the hairline and behind. 

Would I go back to Dr Nader? There is obviously a reason why you chose this physician in the first place. How do you feel about that? Whatever your final decision, do your due diligence. There are some amazing physicians out there. It is essential for you that you choose the right physician for your next surgery. Consult! You have time over the next months to consult with your other "favourite" Doctors. Hear their opinion, get their recommendations. Ask Dr Nader his thoughts, transplant density in the front, how much he perceives has grown % wise. I would agree that the 500-1000 graft recommendation moving forward is not going to achieve what you are looking for. I hope I am wrong.

You seem to have a great head on your shoulders and are approaching this very well. Again, consult with other Doctors. Dr Nader is not your only option.

Anything I can do to help, please just let me know.

Wishing you the best over the coming months.

@gillenator, correct 2200 in the frontal core, but the latest pictures I have taken are from today which is almost at the 10th month mark.

So is it your goal to add to the frontal core?

Yes I would like to add enough density up front that it doesn't appear as sparse and looks full. I did show Nader my old college ID from when I was about 21-22 which I wanted to replicate that hairline, which may have been too aggressive for 1 procedure/low graft amount.

If I do return, I will likely request 2-3k in the frontal core. No way 500-1k would be enough I would imagine.
