6000 donor, NW4a destined for NW7. Should I do it?


Recommended Posts

I think I may have 6000 grafts in my donor available for extraction, however I also think I may end up as a NW7 (currently NW4/5).

 

Should I go with a HT now or am I shooting myself in the foot for the future? In other words can a NW4a who has 3000 FUs now in the frontal half still achieve an acceptable natural appearance if he then progresses to NW7?

 

My hair ccharacteristics are good, in that I have thick hair.

Chops,

 

Have you met with a world class HT doctor yet ? If not I would asap. Are you taking any medicines (FIN and Rogaine) to help stop the hair loss ? I was a NW5 and just had approximately 4500 FUT's last week and I wanted to be proactive not completely reactive with my hair loss problem.

Hi Tony,

Yes & yes. I'm hoping the meds will prevent NW7, but still want to plan for the worst.

 

The Dr thinks I'll be ok, but still I wanted to get some patients opinions.

 

Best of luck with your growth.

Chops,

 

Talk to *several* doctors about your case. In doing so, hopefully, you will see a common thread in terms of what they say regarding your donor supply and your long term hair loss pattern.
