    I specialize in Fue and has done over 400 cases of Fue and 200 of strip. Certainly much larger number of grafts is possible in one session of strip, hence more coverage. However,with Fue specialist, up to 4000 grafts can be performed on suitable candidates in one 2 days session.
    On the other hand, find doing multiple small sessions have much faster recovery and less risk of shock loss. The final coverage can still be very good.
    Regarding what level of Norwood classification is too high, the answer is depending on what result will the patient be happy. Some of my patients are suffering from Norwood 7 and are very happy just to restore the hairline which will give them a younger look already. Also, fue allow for body hair transplant, so the follicles from the scalp can be used for the frontal area, the body hair can give the crown a reasonable coverage.
