    I think you should start a new thread to discuss this. Let's keep this on point for Suarez and his results.

    I am no expert. But based on my recent consultation and looking at the before surgery photos there may not have been enough donor area to cover the crown and cover the front hairline and scalp with dense enough coverage. I was told by a specialist during my recent consultation that the crown would be the last part of the head to be covered because it is on the very top and the least noticeable to others. Fix the other parts first basically before the crown

    At the time , the cost was around 1 euro per graft .

    As a NW6 , the full area will never get full coverage in a single session of 4000 grafts . As the frontal hairline is the more important aspect in most peoples decision to go for a initial HT , this was the area addressed initially .I've not been for a 2nd HT as yet , as I'm pretty happy with the result from my initial HT . I may go for a 2nd surgery at some point , but don't feel the urgency to do it right now. It will also give me additional time to assess my situation should any further hair loss occur .

    Some people do go down the route of coverage to the full area in a single session , but you have to take on oard that coverage will not be that dense until a further seession is undertaken . Hairsgone who posts on here went down this route and ended up with a very good result doing it this way .

    Pretty much correct . However , it wasn't limited donor that affected the decision , but the size of session to go for .

    4000 grafts is about the limit I would consider in a single session . You can go above this figure , but there are risks in doing so . Also , there are very few surgeons I would trust to go above this figure.

    Hi Suarez, this is good you have more donor to contribute to your crown. Wouldnít you know after a year though of having your last transplant done if you can now go ahead and get the rest of your crown done?

    I only recently learned from Joe Tillman yesterday similar to what you state above, that itís risky going for anything more than 3000-3,500 grafts in one session because if your new hairs donít take then you pretty much mess up your donor area which could lead to catastrophe for future hair transplants.

    I have been enquiring with Asmed clinic (Dr Erdogan) as many have stated such amazing results and his work is exceptional. However Asmed clinic has assessed that I would need 5000 grafts for my surgery. I am only between Norwood 3/4, 5000 seems a hell of a lot to me and also Ä12,500 euros is out of my budget. Itís risky as well tampering with 5000 grafts for my first time but Asmed seem to do this with others. I am thinking of getting FUT for a 1/3 of the price (3,500 grafts) for my first hair transplant so I get good coverage and have more donor area to use at a later stage and then a couple of years down the line if needs be getting it all topped up,thickened up and the rest of the lost parts with Asmed FUE. Iím not sure but need to try not to jump too far ahead.

    How would you rate Dr K from AEK ??

    Hi ,

    I've stated in the post above why I didn't feel compelled to get the 2nd transpalnt done yet.

    As far as Dr K is concerned , I was happy with my result .
