Que: I am sending you some photographs of my head – please advise which class of the Norwood classification do I come under and whether I will be an ideal candidate for an FUE procedure?
Ans: After taking a look at the photographs that you have sent, it seems that you have lost more hair in the crown area and the middle part of the scalp. We would suggest that you firstly try medical management, in the form of finasteride or Minoxidil. In case you have already tried these options and there has not been a great response, you could go in for a hair transplant. Looking at the pictures, you might need close to 4000 grafts, but it would be best that you meet a hair transplant surgeon and get a physical exam. During your visits, you will be able to chalk out the donor area, the procedure and other aspects related to the transplant.
