Your opinion - NW 7 patient pictures


#1

Dear forum readers,

FUSE techniques enable use of a wide array of hair follicles to provide aesthetic improvement in cases considered unsuitable for hair restoration surgeries otherwise.


Following are pictures of one such case.

The patient is a Norwood class 7 and has a slick bald scalp.

He has very limited scalp donor reserve.


I look forward to read comments/advise on the hair restoration strategy for the patient.
Such discussion will prove educational for patients researching their own hairrestoration options.

Regards,
Dr. A

» hey dr A, i think he is to far along and to little donor tell him to shave it and grow a goatee

He should definitely shave off and forget HTs. He is never going to have enough donor to cover. Even his donor is too thin.
Theres so much slick bald scalp in recipient = diminished blood supply. That will impact negatively on the grafts, if placed.

Overall, a very poor candidate for transplant.

What do you mean shave it? He has next to nothing left already.

This is getting old, why not just tell us what are your plans for him?

Dear readyfreddy,

I feel patients and readers contribute a lot by voicing their opinion and suggestions.
What I may do will be only one option.

Its best to start thinking on one’s own though.

Another NW 7 should not be constricted for choices by reading what I perform.

Regards,
Dr. A

That was the first option I told the patient.

He has done his own research and feels there are ways that may work for him.

With all due respect, unless you have invented a new breakthrough for baldness, we all know that his only option is body hair (beard, pubic, armpits, legs, arms, thighs etc etc) and maybe a few scalp hairs via fue. Feel free to prove me wrong.

Dear readyfreddy,
My aim was never to offend you.
Its fair to hear comments from a wide variety of readers. Dont you agree?
There is more then one correct way.

I am not looking to prove you or anyone else wrong. I am looking to hear a wide variety of comments. That will be helpful for patients researching their own hair restorations. Dont you agree?

Since, it seems you and the patient have already gone ahead, its safe to assume he has had a transplant.

If I was him, I will go for the buzz cut look with a 5 'O clock shadow using transplanted hair from head and body. Any attempts at dense cover in small area will not look good. Just my opinion.
I know you are the best doctor at fue bht. Even then, I doubt much can be done for this person.

Well, the next step is to post pics of the donor areas. If he has good body hair he can start a receding look in front and perhaps even skip the crown region. A frontal region constructed with new temple points would be a real achievement, but can it be done?

With enough donor, its possible, but it seems risky. I would be impressed if you went forward with this

Interesting. I personally though think that there is very little difference between this, and shaved to bone.
