HT performed by Dr. Jerry Wong


#1

Most doctors that viewed my pre-op pics were not very encouraging regarding the number of grafts they thought possible. I was classified as Norwood 7 (very little donor hair available). Based on these respected opinions, I had low expectations and thought I’d be lucky to get 2500 grafts. After viewing my pictures Dr. Wong quoted me 3000 grafts. When I saw him on the day of surgery he said that he could get more grafts because of my skin laxity and my dense donor hair. Given the fact that I’m 55 years old, Dr. Wong recommended a hairline that was appropriate for my age and which would also allow for more coverage over the top and back of my head. The final count: 5,170 grafts!!
