Hi guys


#1

I have been reading all your posts and decided to post after a looooong time of absence.

I use to be a frequent posted on this site but decided to move on and go with a system but with the new advances in HT I’m thinking of getting a hair transplant. In the late 90s I did have 3 HT but not enought coverage so I turned to the hair system and it was thanks to hairsite.com or else I wouldn’t have known where to turn to.

Anyways, I do have one question, I went in for a consultation and the doctor told me that I would need between 1500 to 2000 FU with 30/40 cm2 for the hairline behind it.

What I wanted to know is 30/40 cm2 a good coverage? Also I was hoping hairsite.com still has my old pics before getting the system, so that he can post it on the forum so you guys can give me some advise.

Thanks,

Tony

Hi,

I have been compiling info for a while and from my investigations/seeing and talking to patients, the answer is a definite NO. You will not be happy at all with 30fu/cm2 in the front . I reckon 50 is a minimum and 60-70 is good coverage. Remember that 25/30 are grafts separated by 2mm. look on a ruler and you can imagine the coverage.

That sucks. But keep in mind I do have hair, transplanted hair that is but I still need coverage.

I think it would be thin as well, you would be better off with 50-60.

Are you talking of the hair line and or behind the hair line? Obviously if you have hair it will make a big difference, but depends how much hair and what the quality is like. But hair lines use just one hair per graft so if you’re talking of 30/40 you are not going to get anything like a natural look.

Any pictures to see please?

I’m talking about the hairline and behind it, I have done some HT in the past and the doctor told me my hairline is to perfect and it may need to be fixed alittle

I have asked Hairsite to put up the pics, so you can see them. I

Hi Tony71,

Sorry for the delay. Finally found your pics. I will forward your case to Dr. Wong’s clinic.

One positive note. I think if you make a careful choice then you’ll get some fantastic results but I’m too tired to make any intelegent comments. You have some coverage which might explain why 30-40/cm2 was suggested. First, I would decide on FUE or strip. If you will keep your hair long as it is then H&W are the strip standard bearers.

Thanks for the advise. One question, when you say I have some coverage that is why the doctor suggested 30-40/cm2, what do you mean? I’m not sure which one is best for me, FUE or strip. The last 3 HT I did were strip.

I do like to keep my hair long, the most I ever shorten it was like 5 to 6 inches.

Well, 30-40fu/cm2 + your eisting coverage (20-25fu/cm2) = 50-60fu/cm2

Oh, I thought you had not had HT yet. How is your donor area?

I think H&W sound a good start.

I guess that’s why he said that I can then get rid of my hair system because I would be happy with the results for the front.

Oh, I thought you had not had HT yet. How is your donor area?

The donor area has 3 scars from the previous HT in the late 90s, and the doctor that looked at it said he can get between 1500 to 2000 grafts to get the front done and the crown area would be BHT.

I think H&W sound a good start.

From what I have heard and see seems H&W is the way to go.

He can only get 1500 to 2000 grafts from your donor? Your donor seems pretty thick to me, i would expect you could get more from your donor.

I guess since I have had 3 HT before and with 3 scars in the back it is limited. He said anymore than 1500 to 2000 the back could thin out.

Here’s the master plan for you if you have good scalp laxity. Do a strip to max out the donor that you can get from the back of your head. Then do fue on the sides, your sides look pretty thick to me, you should be able to get 1000 from the sides. And finally use body hair as fillers for the crown and behind the hairline. I think if you can figure out a way to get about 5000 grafts in total, you will be fine.

That is the plan I had with this doctor I went to see. I’m waiting for the response from H&W see what they have to say.

If Bobman can have a full head of hair, I see no reason why you cannot. You have more hair than Bobman
