This 29 year patient asked to have his recessions restored. I have found that to prevent any future problems it is important to tie the recessions together by transplanting the frontal hairline. The patient had 1623 follicular units placed in lateral slits. Note the naturalness of the hairline on the close-up.

Absolutely awesome Doctor DeYarman! This reminds me, of me! I had a similar erosion of my hair, and had 1,661 grafts (nearly identical to this patient). "Small" sessions can make a BIG difference!

Dr. DeYarman, I have density question.
There appear to be two school's of thought among surgeons recommended on this board, one would tackle a norwood 3 with 1500 to 1800 grafts and wait and see in a year's time if more is required.

Another camp would attack the norwood 3 with 2500 to 3000 grafts, the more conservative camp argues there isn't room for such placement and the hair will be wasted and that after 35 grafts Cm2 the cosmetic advantage is not of much notice.

What say you? Does the conservative camp rightfully assert that the megasessions are unwarranted for norwood 3 baldness classes?
