Being a NW 6, this guy is going to need more than one surgery. It’s surprising to me that more men with this pattern don’t elect to have their first surgery focus on building up the sides of the vertex and to a lesser extent, the mid-vertex and forelock. That design would create a “natural balding” look. So many instead choose to frame their faces with a hairline that has nothing behind it. It’s not exactly a natural male pattern. However, I understand this is a work in progress and I like the mature hairline on this patient.

Dear Norwd6,
There are patients that choose that route too.
I will locate some results of the type and post.

Dr. A

I couldn’t agree more. I think that this is an area that will improve in 2009 and I think the HT surgeons community is partly responsible. They have been focused on other issues but with improved capabilities this issue now lags behind in my view.

I think it is an area that present quite a few possibilities.

I have posted pictures of a patient where an approach similar to what you suggest was followed http://www.hairsite.com/hair-loss/forum_entry-id-47842-category-2.html

Dear Marco,
The technology is there to provide adequate number of grafts, (in suitable patients), to cover most areas of hairloss.
Its a matter of time before more patients go for larger and/or hybrid sessions.
