    Hairline and temples are cosmetically more important than anywhere else on your scalp. There are very few surgeons I would let handle those areas, and Gho is not one of them, regeneration or no.

    I don't agree at all. Crown is as important as the hairline, even more I think.

    Nothing worse than looking 'good' from the front, then as soon as you turn around 'surprise surprise' a big bald crown.

    Talk about turning off the cute girl you were talking to.

    I think the point is that it only takes a reasonably good doctor to deal with crown cases; it takes a world class doctor to skillfully craft a natural-looking hairline.

    I think part of the "problem" with Gho hairlines is that he doesn't do 6000 graft mega sessions. He can do 2000 - 2500 grafts max a year to assure proper healing. Many patients he can only do even less than that. Nobody, save maybe a NW2, is going to get an Alvi Armani hairline with 2000 grafts.

    Gho can give reasonable looking hairlines in one session though.

    That is Wes Sneijder. He isn't going to become a hair model anytime soon, but any balding man that says that that hairline isn't good enough is just greedy and/or delusional.

    Fair enough, I agree a significantly balding or bald crown is quite bad cosmetically, especially for younger guys. But if I had to choose between using my precious donor to fill the crown (which eats up a lot of grafts even without too much density) or to frame the face, I'll go with option 2 every time.
    I say this because there are more and better non-surgical options for the crown than in the temples and hairline. It responds better to meds, you can get away easier with using concealers there, and in a worse case scenario you can even wear a partial system (detectability is less of a concern if your hairline and temples are real-- at least you won't have mesh poking out the front like Travolta)

    Crown is still most important for me as before I had/knew about hairloss it was only people with bare crowns, not receding hairlines that I'd tag as balding.

    Last year my parents made me take a Christmas picture with my brothers in outside on vacation and I couldn't believe how bald my front looked. It looked awful. That's when I realized how much hair I had lost in the past two years. Unfortunately, I think altering one's hormones with fin is dangerous so I won't get a HT until there is some solution to maintaining what is left.
