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.

This question, from a member of our hair loss social community and discussion forums, was answered by Coalition hair transplant surgeon Dr. David Josephitis: I have this scar on my face which I received when I was a baby. Is there a way to to perform a beard transplant to it, maybe with a follicular unit extraction hair transplant or maybe some other treatment? I think Beard FUE would be an excellent way to help cover the scar. Typically we can get anywhere from 300-500 beard FUE grafts in a session. Because you have scaring also in the underside of the beard where we typically take the hair from, we would probably only get 200 -300 grafts. We could also take scalp FUE to supplement that. It is most likely going to take more than one session to really blend in the area. After one session of FUE into the scar, oftentimes the skin become more normal and softer. May goal for you would be to evenly place graft on […]

This hair restoration question was answered by hair loss forum member “ArochaHair”, online representative for Coalition physician Dr. Bernardino Arocha: I sent my pre-op pictures to 3 different hair transplant surgeons in India (2 FUE, 1 Strip using Trichophytic Closure). One says I need 2200 grafts. Another says 3000. Third says 4000. I’m very confused. Also, the strip doctor claims I will have invisible scars (he’s the cheapest of the lot). Can I trust him in his claim? All 3 are recommended and reviewed in this forum. There are no guarantees with follicular unit strip surgery (FUSS) or with follicular unit extraction (FUE). None. The first steps you should consider are to look at cases on the websites of these hair restoration physicians and ask yourself if you see similar cases with similar graft estimates that they gave you and if those results are what you would consider to be desirable. Ask them to explain the differences between quotes that you’ve received. Any estimate you’ve been given should be explainable if required. ArochaHair […]
