IAHRS Member, Bernardino Arocha, M.D. of Houston and Dallas Responds:
After having two consultations in the past month I’ve become more confused then ever about how many grafts I will need to achieve my goal of restoring my hairline and about two inches behind it. I had one consultation with a non-IAHRS doctor who said I only needed 1500 grafts which would cost $7500, and with one IAHRS doctor who suggested that to achieve the coverage that I
am looking for I would need at least 3000 grafts for around S14,000. From what I see on your website I probably need more like the 3000, but I don’t want to spend more money then I need to if it’s not warranted. I know that the IAHRS has the best reputation but I guess I’m looking for another opinion on my situation. For the record I am about a N3 on the hair loss scale.
Thanks you for any help you can provide.
