    Am I a good candiate for FUE-500 graft? advice on thinning hairline
    Hi. I'm Aeroman. To get right into it. I'm 40 years old. I have no history of male pattern hair loss on either side of my family...mom or dad ect. I've always had thick hair and if ethnicity matters I'm half white and Korean. Last year I noticed my frontal hairline was thinning along the base...the widows peak and along both sides. I cant tell if its my hairline is maturing or if its just old fashioned thinning due to my age or both.

    After research I almost went with a PRP + Acell treatment but backed out at the last minute because I didn't know if it would work. I then went to another clinic and they didn't seem to concerned about the thinning but recognized my concern and offered a FUE transplant with 500 grafts. They gave me quote and said it was basically up to me and told me the results are guaranteed.

    I know its all personal preference but with the pictures I provided I wanted some imput and opinions. is it bad ect..

    best reagrds!

    Hi Aero.

    I would say for 40 years old you have fantastic hair judging by your photos and you should look into non surgical methods before deciding on a small transplant of 500 which would be counter productive. If you name the clinic you may get feedback on what result you should get and if it is recommended clinic or one to avoid.

    The problem with transplants is that you could have shock loss or thinning which would only be solved by time or a second transplant. Maybe try shampoos such as nano-gen and supplements before having a HT?

    Financially it wouldn't cost that much more to have a more substantial transplant that would have more density. Any HT, medication such as FIN or rogaine is a ongoing process which means if you decide to continue with a HT or medication its a long term process.

    Hopefully a qualified person will comment on this post to give you clearer guidance.

    Hi. Thanks for the reply. The fue would be for the frontal hairline. I dunno if you can see from the pictures but the base of the hairs are thinning in the front. I dunno if it my hairline is just maturing ect.

    The clinic is Sacramento Hair doctor.

    Nalini G. Prasad is the doctor.

    Yes I agree nothing is guaranteed but any other reasons why I shouldn't?

    In my opinion youíre not a good candidate. You have good hair now and you likely stand to lose more than you stand to gain. Thatís too small a number of grafts to have a surgery. Donít risk it.

    I see what you're saying. Thanks for the input. I really appreciate it. "Having too much to loose." I wonder if that has to with shock loss or just some sort of mishap with the procedure.
