View Full Version : Met with Dr. Bernstein about FUT procedure - What to do??

Hi everyone, I am really looking for some advice here.

I saw Dr. Bernstein today who I liked. He said that he would do 2200 grafts which would make the hairline I still have more dense. He said that he's not going to try and extend the hairline so it's no longer receding because it doesn't look natural. Just round it out and thicken it. I'm on Avodart and have managed to keep my hair loss upfront pretty steady over the last few years. I apparently have a donor density of 2.3 which he said was good- no idea what that means.

He wouldn't touch the crown, just to about my mid scalp as he said I am holding up ok back there.

I suggested FUE, but he said that with my long hair it would be better to do FUT. The last thing I want to do is have to shave any part of my head in preparation and I have long hair which can help hide the initial red spots. Apparently he said he invented FUT.

Thoughts?? He has an opening to do the procedure next week!
