Thanks all for the comments. It’s not always just about what the patient would like, I’m sure most, especially the younger lads would all say flat and straight hair line please, it is about what is possible for them, now and in the future.
Donor management, potential hair loss, all has to be taken into account and then measured against goals. I know for a fact that we could have treated many more cases if the doctor was willing to compromise and go just with the patients wishes but the patient doesn’t always know or at least appreciate what is best for them. This is normal and understandable because hair loss and the requested result is emotion based, so sometimes the doctor has to step in and say no sometimes.
This case was simple because the patient and doctor were on the same wave length, not too aggressive, good donor, preserve as much as possible for the future.
