Hi Dr Rassman,
Had a question about hair transplantation. In your professional experience in treating thousands of patients, would you say there is any hope for norwood 6’s?? I mean I know the limitations of supply and that everyones characteristics are different, but can a norwood 6 get any kind of decent coverage to get rid of the bald look. I ask because I fear thats where I am headed.
Have many norwood 6’s on my father side and have been loosing hair. At the moment I have arrested it with the help of finasteride (stopping around a norwood 3 and have not progressed in over a year), but as you keep stating, eventually your genes win, so I was just wondering what advice you give to people high up on the norwood scale, and if transplantation can do anything for them. thanks
We have transplanted many Norwood 6 pattern balding people. Some have excellent results, such as the one shown here (click the photos to enlarge):
These type of results occur in people with average or above average hair density, and medium or coarser hair thickness. Don’t lose hope.
