    Default Should I fix my bald spot with another FUE procedure?

    I had 3000 grafts via Neograft FUE to rebuild my hairline and front top area and itís starting to look pretty good. I was a norwood 6 and it feels great to have hair and a hairline again but I have that pesky bald spot in the back/vertex that stands out. I use toppik to make it appear I have a full head of hair when I go out but was wondering how many of you just leave the bald spot/vertex area alone. I have seen many cases where they only do the hairline and front and donít touch the bald spot. Itís bugging me and I know donor area is precious so what do you guys do or whatís your opinion?

    Did the surgeon think you had enough donor hair to fill that area in? In most cases reputable surgeons won't attempt to fill that area in because of the limited donor area.

    The surgeon stated that I had very good donor area and even after 3000 grafts taken, my donor area looks pretty good no noticeable scarring or circle scars and thatís even at a skin fade type haircut. Iím just curious what you guys think or do most people just paint the bald spot or use toppik instead of taking the fue plunge again?

    Iven been on propecia since October 2017 the day of surgery and seeing if it may close the bald spot a little bit at least. I really am curious how many guys get FUE and fix front and hairline but just stop there and leave the crown bald in the back.

    You are lucky that you have such a great donor area...I wasn't even a candidate for FUE because of my donor was too thin and I would never do strip.
    Just from what I have read I don't think most people have enough donor area to tackle the crown and also get a good frontal result but it sounds like you have a very good donor supply left. Please seek another opinion before you do this from a reputable DR. Good Luck!
