Hi doc. I have a thick donor area but the side of my hair in my opinion are a bit thin. Would I still be a good candidate for a surgery?
I have read on a few forums and websites that say a person in my situation would be better suited for FUE rather then strip because they can just go to my donor hair in the back and pick the healthy hair out instead of doing a strip and leaving my side even more thinner. But, I wanted to get a more expert opinion from you to see what you think. Thanks.
Reading forums and searching the Internet for personal health or cosmetic surgery related questions will probably cause more confusion. Each and every case is different. So when you are ready to see a doctor for options regarding a “possible” surgery, your situation will be better served with a doctor sitting in front of you.
Sorry if this is not answering your question in detail but that is really my “expert” opinion. I can’t give an expert opinion without a diagnosis or a physical exam. There have been plenty of patients who have had thinning and done well with a strip surgery. There also have been plenty of patients who I recommend no surgery at all.
