I'm a 33 year old male of middle-eastern descent. I have black hair that is quite thick and that has a frizz/wave movement.
About a year and a half ago, I consulted with a local hair transplant surgeon who told me I was not a candidate because there was no room for him to place any follicular units. He did however see some "gaps" in the hair on top as well as some miniaturization happening in the temple region.
Since then, the following has taken place:
- general loss of density all over (including sides and back) but much more on the top of the scalp
- continued shedding and miniaturization taking place, albeit quite gradually so no major bald spots
- hairline has receded about 1/4 to 1/2 of a CM in the front region and probably 1/2 to 1 CM (or more) in the temple region
1. Is it possible to have a HT to "fill in" gaps and restore density on the top so that it is more like that of the sides and back?
2. Since I still have a lot of hair (I'm probably a Norwood 1.5-2), what would be the consequence of getting a transplant at this stage? What will it look like as time goes on and the non-transplanted hair continues to fall out?
3. What is the impact on the results (aesthetic) of a transplant if donor hair has a different movement/texture than the rest of the hair on the top of the scalp (i.e. it is more wavy)
