Class 5 on the Norwood scale is the phase when the hair in between the frontal area and the vertex starts to deplete. The bald areas from both sides start to enlarge, and the hair in between also faces recession. Hair transplantation for class 5 and above requires more grafts, to provide density and coverage.  When patients get to this phase, they turn to hair restoration, which can be seen from the patient testimonials below.

Bosley Norwood Scale Class 5 Hair Transplant Reviews:

Patient Review H.W.

I want to personally thank you for the exceptional work of your associates at [Bosley Medical], especially Dr. Mark Andrews. He conducted an excellent 1400 graft procedure for me… I greatly appreciated his follow-up call to me later that evening to check on my condition. I have to admit I was quite apprehensive before the procedure; however, Dr. Andrews and his support staff put me at ease… They are the best! I recently had my six-month follow-up evaluation with Dr. Andrews and couldn’t be more pleased with the results. Thank you Dr. Bosley for establishing the “Bosley Hair Restoration Practice.” At “40″ you’ve helped me regain my youthful appearance. My only regret was my hesitation to do it earlier.

Patient Review B.H.

Thank you Bosley Medical for fulfilling my every expectation. I never realized how important something like hair restoration could be to one’s self-confidence. It was a big decision and the right one for me. It will forever change my outlook on life. I am grateful to you for a job very well done.

Patient Review B.G.

I had a procedure performed at [Bosley Medical] Florida. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. I am now 24 years old. I have another appointment in two weeks to have another procedure done in Florida. I can’t wait! The results are as undetectable as if God put them there himself. Thank you for your amazing service, and for giving a young man back his “youth”. This is truly one of the most uplifting personal experiences of my life. I have a friend my age whose hair is also starting to thin. When I told him that I’d had hair restoration, he couldn’t believe that those were transplants. I told him about [Bosley Medical], and if he was to have it done, not to trust anyone else, no matter how much lower their cost was.

Patient Review B.M.

I was self-conscious about my hair loss prior to undergoing a transplantation procedure at Bosley Medical but was hesitant about going forward. I had seen some bad results from other doctors and didn’t want to take a chance. The Bosley Medical procedure, however, looks so natural that I just had to have the best. Now I am amazed how natural my hair looks. I am no longer self-conscious and am totally satisfied with my results. I would recommend Bosley Medical to anyone who wanted to make a dramatic change in their life. (Excelsior Springs, MO)

Patient Review C.P. (MD)

I am very pleased with the results of my procedure. One of the most satisfying elements is that it is not obvious to anyone. In other words, it happened and no one noticed. I remain impressed with Bosley Medical’s professionalism.

Patient Review Chris T.

I just want to say thank you to everyone at Bosley Medical from the office staff to the doctors and nurses. I first learned about Bosley when my father came in for two procedures about five years ago, and boy does he look great. My father is a successful businessman and believes in paying for the best in everything. He shopped around and picked Bosley Medical for obvious reasons. I had been contemplating hair restoration ever since and finally got up the nerve… I had 1900 sites in my procedure and it looks fantastic – and I’m probably looking to do some more in the near future. I sincerely believe it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, I was VERY self-conscious about my balding head and thought it made me look MUCH older than 42. Whenever I would meet someone for the first time, their eyes would immediately shift to my “shiny” head. Well, that doesn’t happen anymore, and I would recommend Bosley Medical to everyone who is thinking about it… Thanks again.

Patient Review D.M.

I wanted to drop you [Dr. Digby] a short note to say thank you for taking such excellent care of me. In my experience it is rare to find such a caring, professional yet friendly group of people. In your care, I wanted for nothing, but was given anything I wanted. I actually drove home and felt so good on the way, I stopped for dinner. You and the group made good and then some on everything you said you would do. For me, it has been fifteen years hoping one day I could go back and finish what I started. You all made my dream come true! What more can I say? Thank you so much.

Patient Review D.Y.

Wow, you are all incredible…it was an enjoyable experience at Bosley Medical. Thanks for the free shampoo, the extra grafts, the comfortable, friendly atmosphere, and the food (“dinner and a movie”) was a class act! I could not believe the service you guys and ladies provided and I appreciate it. All of you are in an honorable profession: the art of changing lives one person at a time. I am indebted to you… Keep up the great work and may blessings fall upon all of your lives.

Patient Review G.Y.

I think what finally convinced me was when I realized just how much time I was spending and in all reality wasting each day in front of the mirror, trying to cover my balding areas. I was spending more time and money on fine tooth combs, special brushes, numerous hair sprays and gels, but what really put me over the top was when I would be embarrassed if my girlfriend saw the way I would pat and use the mirror to try and cover up. I also noticed I had acquired a very large baseball cap collection and I was buying hats to try and hide the fact that I was in fact hiding my hair or lack of. I scheduled a second consultation and within 5 minutes, I knew this was the right decision and made my mind up to schedule my procedure. I cannot even begin to describe how impressed I have been with your Houston staff beginning with the intructions and support prior to my surgery and the awesome professionalism that was displayed during my procedure.

I arrived on time at 7:30am… every effort was made to see I was as comfortable as possible. Dr. Crawshaw came in and explained every aspect of the procedure. The staff provided videos to watch, constantly offered me beverages, again always asking if I was comfortable… Dr. Crawshaw… explained every medicine and what to expect. Truth is I was feeling pretty good. I drove myself home and was surprised when approxomately two hours later, the doctor called me at home to check on me and see if I had any further questions. I had a little over 2,000 grafts during my first procedure and went right on with my normal activities the next day. I was so impressed with the overall treatment, I opted not to wait a yearlike I had originally planned and had my second procedure of 2,000 plus grafts performed 8 weeks later. It has been 4 months since my first procedure and already my two “landing strips” in the front are covered with new growth. I spend at least half the time getting ready now, and I can’t wait to try new hairstyles now that I don’t have to play “cover-up” every day for 20 or so minutes. I also am not embarrassed to get ready in the bathroom with my girlfriend anymore. In such a short period of time this procedure has had such a profound impact on my life. I only wonder what took me so long, and I tell everyone. I am not one bit ashamed or embarrassed. For the first time in over 10 years I actually have a hairline. This is such a small investment in oneself for the rewards you reap. I would highly recommend Bosley Medical to anyone considering hair transplant surgery or with receding or balding hair. My advice, don’t wait, you will thank yourself.

Patient Review J.D.

I am writing as one of your patients who had a hair transplant procedure at the [Bosley Medical] clinic in San Francisco…I was treated with utmost courtesy and care by your very professional staff…they made the extra effort to make me feel comfortable in every possible way. Any type of surgery is not something one looks forward to, but your staff did everything to make this as pleasant an experience as can be possible…you do run an impeccable organization. My thanks to Dr. Aragoni and his staff…

Patient Review Adam S.

I just wanted to thank you [Dr. Frost] and the rest of your [Bosley Medical Chicago] staff for making both procedures seem as painless as possible. Of course why would there be any pain when all the nurses working on me were very beautiful and friendly ladies. I really appreciated everyone’s friendliness and eagerness to answer any questions or concerns I may have had. Honestly, I can’t think of any better place or atmosphere to have had these procedures done. (New Richmond, WI)

Patient Review B.B.

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you… I am not sure if you know my situation or not, I have had two other transplant procedures done from two different companies over the last few years and nothing they did even comes close to the way I was treated at Bosley [Medical]. The professionalism and the kindness shown towards me was outstanding. Everyone was so friendly and I feel they really went out of their way to make me comfortable…

Patient Review Benny D.

I would like to thank you all… most of all the whole Bosley Medical staff. They are all terrific people and they made me a very, very happy person and patient… I wouldn’t have taken it to the full extent if it wasn’t for each and everyone of you at Bosley Medical. I just wanted to thank all of you for making me feel comfortable and confident. God bless your future wherever it takes you. Your patient and friend…
