I am 24 y.o. male and i’ve been losing hair since i was 19/20. My father (52 y.o.) and uncle (46 y.o.) are NW 4A and i think i am balding the same pattern. I’ve seen many results where people with NW 4A achieved almost complete coverage with 4000 grafts. Is miniaturization going to show if i will be in my 50’s like my father so that i can start thinking for a HT? I think I’m too young to go for a HT and end NW6.
Mapping out the scalp for miniaturization can be used to forecast balding patterns, particularly if your eye is telling you that you are losing hair. For a Norwood Class 4A pattern, 2500-4000 grafts can do a good job depending upon the thickness of your hair. Finer hair takes more grafts than coarser hair.
