The following hair transplant question was answered by recommended hair restoration surgeon Dr. Tejinder Bhatti:
Can I get a hair transplant to grow a mohawk like this? I would be most happy with this hairstyle. I have also included a pic of my head.
A mohawk like the one shown above is only achievable in hair transplant patients who have a good scalp donor site and do not have much advancing baldness. At most they have a Norwood Scale type 2-3 hair loss pattern. The mohawk can be achieved in this select category, but in two sittings 6 months apart.
You have type 4 baldness and extensive miniaturization in the vertex area. I would not say you are a candidate for hair restoration surgery since your expectations are unrealistic.
