You mentioned "NW class 6" but the Before picture shows a reasonable amount of hair. Is the Before what's considered a NW6? (just curious since there are various definitions)

What I like about this result is that it is a realistic depiction of what is possible with a hair transplant procedure. This patient is older and judging by the pictures his hairloss seems minimal when compared to many others where the lateral humps begin to drop and the temple points start to recede. With that in mind you are looking at 3000+ grafts which for many with extensive hairloss is probably approaching their donor limit especially with FUE. So if this is a realistic expectation what exactly are we seeing with other cases on younger patients and what can those younger patients expect in a few years when they may have already used up most of their donor?

This result is realistic and young guys need to see more of these types of results so that the reality can start to sink in and they understand what being realistic means. It makes for better decisions and not ones based on trying to fool young boys with walls of hair that are mathematically impossible to maintain.

If this is a realistic result and a realistic expectation using methods that make sense what is everything else including stem cell donor regenertion, tattooing and all the other gimmicks to get people through the door? I'm sure the patient is happy and more importantly it makes more sense then what the marketers would have many believe.

The before and after picture preaches a message and it doesn't matter if that message is seen by one person or a million people.

Stay away from doctors who perform mega sessions, have posts deleted, attack posters, sue patients & forum owners, use power drills or robots. I recommend fue with hand punches in the .70-.85 range. I consulted with dozens of clinics over the years and there was a recurring theme regarding FUE among some employees of those other clinics. I was told Bisanga was the man my research told me the same and my experience validated my own research.

Good question. The patient had light coverage across the top of the scalp, but lacked the connecting bridge of hair that defines a Norwood Class 5. To be more precise, he is an early, thinning NW6. He could also be classified as DPA (diffuse patterned hair loss) i.e., thinning across the top of the scalp with good back and sides. Sorry, I don't have additional photos to illustrate.
