View Full Version : FUE on small crown areas

11-29-2010, 11:29 AM
Wonder if any of you out there can help. My situation is that i have a small bald patch on the crown. It has been around for a while and does not seem to be getting much larger. It is not even classed as Norwood Stage 1 yet. One hears much about megagrafts, but my question is how small or how larger must a balding area be before one can be considered for FUE? These small fill ins do not seem to be discussed very much. If you have any experience please share it...thanks in advance.

How old are you? Depending on the age of patient, area of hair loss, and family history of genetic alpoecia small fill in cases can easity be restored using FUE.

I've been on the site for awhile and I've done the research...I would strongly recommend one of the fine doctors recommended on this site for a FUE procedure.

Its relatively inexpensive, the service seems very successful.

of course you can use products like Couvre and Toppik as an easy consealer but its a pain..

for the few dollars expended...I'd suggest a FUE procedure.

What part of the country are you in?

GOod luck...

If the area is small then FUE is probably the best choice. All of the questions Dr Charles brought up are highly relevant, plus I would add that making use of the standard treatments (Propecia, Rogaine) would be the best first course of action, as they are proven to be highly successful for the crown and could eliminate the need for surgery at all.
