IAHRS Member Robert True, M.D., MPH of New York Responds:
After two not so great hair transplants I am hoping to get some advice from a reputable IAHRS surgeon who is willing to tell me the truth. I have been told that I have at least another 3000 grafts in my donor by my current doctor( not IAHRS accredited), and he assures me that I can get where I wasn't to be with one more surgery. My question is if I am already a class V who has had a total of 2170 grafts with a thin result, will I be able to significantly bulk up my hair if I have another transplant with the remaing 3000 grafts or am I just chasing my tail? I have been taking Propecia for 5 years with good results so I think my hair is stable.
I’m not a rich man so I would prefer not to spend anymore money on a dream that will never come true.
Thanks for your service!
