Is my donor area good enough for a hair transplant? I'd need around 6K grafts


Recommended Posts

Hi John. I'm not qualified to give you an accurate answer. Would you consider augmenting scalp grafts with beard grafts? Are you taking finasteride, etc? All the best!

I remember your last post in December. Did you start taking fin ? Best to consult with a few clinics to get a better idea of how many grafts are possible. 
Are you thinking FUT or FUE ? Maybe even a combo ht. As mentioned before it’s most likely going to take a couple of hts at least. 
As @Gatsbymentioned with your level of loss, then Beard grafts could be considered.

@JohnAC71 Hi, John! Yes, I've started taking fin + min and have started seeing a bit of regrowth (not a lot though). I think of doing FUE with Dr. Zarev when I have the money to pay for it. I just wanted to get feedback on my donor area and see if it's good enough to cover the bald parts (which is the entire scalp, basically). I know that I'll need at least 2 procedures, and it's fine.

Please post a review when you get it done.

That’s really good to hear ! A Dr Zarev would be great to see on the forum. Your donor looks fine to me from what I can gauge by just the pics.

It doesn't look like the best donor in the world obviously, but I think it should be good enough. Make sure to get it checked microscopically by any doctor you go visit for a consultation (I recommend multiple consultations as one medical opinion is usually never enough, for anything).
