Hi Joe, for the benefit of others, I am currently talking to H&W / Joe about having an HT with you and also with BHR.
I do not understand why this is regarded as a “different” approach. For a single pass one could not do better than this. This would very much be my preference and I believe from various discussions that it would also be the choice of many type VI. So what is the disadvantage? Generally it is the surgeon that wants to cover one area at a higher density followed by a second session to address another (usually the crown). If two sessions are needed or optimal then either, two areas could be covered, one area in each session or complete coverage with the second session adding density.
Is there a problem adding density to an area already covered in a second session???
although I see this result as pretty much the best that could possibly be achieved in one session, I feel that a small amount of nape hair by “you know what” would soften the hairline a little at this density.
I am not sure if I have seen a better result in one session for this degree of hair loss!!!
