I’m a 45 year old male and I’d like to know if I’d be a good candidate for hair transplant surgery.
A: Based on your pictures, you look like an excellent candidate for hair transplantation. In my office I use automated FUE (follicular unit extraction) which does not leave a telltale linear scar in the back of your scalp. You would likely need 2000-2500 grafts based on your photo which is easily done in one procedure. Automated FUE has several benefits – there is no linear scar, the procedure is done under local anesthesia and there is almost no downtime.
