I’ve currently been on Finasteride for 3 months now, and Minoxidil for 5. My hairline is starting to regrow extremely slowly, but at the same time i’m not sure it will come back. I also would like to see if it would be possible to lower my hairline with FUE procedure as well as filling in a bit of the horshoe pattern as well that is receding. I contacted a facility in Miami, FL on Saturday I believe and was wondering how long it usually takes to schedule a consultation etc etc… I do realize i’ll probably have to get 1-2 or even 3 more hair transplants by the time i’m 40 but right now at age 20 my only fear is that when I go to college started this year, i’ll have missed out on my college social life due to my insecurity of my high and receding hairline.
At 20, you shouldn’t get a hair transplant. Medication is better. The reason is simple, you are very early in a progressive process and if you start now, you may end up chasing the balding. Any doctor who does surgery on a 20 year-old male is after the money and not the welfare of the patient.
