View Full Version : Dr. Wong: 5,170 grafts

Most doctors that viewed my pre-op pics were not very encouraging regarding the number of grafts they thought possible. I was classified as Norwood 7 (very little donor hair available). Based on these respected opinions, I had low expectations and thought I'ld be lucky to get 2500 grafts. After viewing my pictures Dr. Wong quoted me 3000 grafts. When I saw him on the day of surgery he said that he could get more grafts because of my skin laxity and my dense donor hair. Given the fact that I'm 55 years old, Dr. Wong recommended a hairline that was appropriate for my age and which would also allow for more coverage over the top and back of my head. The final count: 5,170 grafts!!

Hey, good to hear from you. You asked me about the cost of my hair transplant. Based on my research, I believe that the fees at Hasson and Wong are very reasonable.
Regarding pricing, if you're from the USA you should talk with Mike and if your from Canada or any other country you should talk with Joe. Mike in Seattle and Joe in Vancouver are consultants with Hasson and Wong. They're both great people and very helpful.
