i am 56/m, bald at the crown. with general thinning on the top and front. because my hair is still falling out i would expect to be compleatly bald in the norwood 6 area in 1 to 2 years. my hair is very fine. can i get a transplant that will also take into consideration my future hair loss, or will i have to repeat the process as my natural hair reduces to zero. if this is a stupid question please forgive my ignorance.
p.s. can you recommend a surgeon in the u.k. who is of your standard both ethically and medically. also i am a blue coller worker, so i would need a to get a loan, can you give me a estimate of a average price for a norward 6 transplant.
p.p.s. GREAT SITE.
At 56, it would be unlikely that you will complete your expected Class 6 pattern, because at your age, the hair loss is often very slow (almost to a stop) in most men. If you want to fill in the frontal and top areas, that would be the best place to start. The crown often takes a great deal of hair to fill in. With regard to a hair transplant surgeon in the UK, consider the physician search at ISHRS.org for a place to look and be sure to read The Truth About Cheap Hair Transplants as a buyer’s guide to selecting a doctor. Both the NHI site and my book also cover different aspects of the buyer’s challenge. Loans vary with the doctor, where some have arranged credit sources. Many of our patients put the hair transplant on a credit card.
