I’ve been looking around on internet to try to learn as much as I can about hair transplants, and I know quite a bit now, but there is one question that I can’t seem to get answered. I have a slowly receeding hairline, not very bad but definitley too much for 27 years old. I have healthy hair on the back and sides of my head but on top it’s a little thin and I think I may eventually loose it all on the top like my grandfather. I’ve tried rogaine and propecia but no dice.
My question is, would it not be a good idea to get a transplant seeing as I might lose hair behind the transplant later? Or is it possible to progressively do other transplants?
I do not believe that a Norwood class 2 pattern is worth transplanting. If you are evolving to a mature hairline, stay on Propecia and see what happens. If the hairline is actually moved up beyond the mature hairline into a class 3, you can transplant it.
I wouldn’t allow any doctor to transplant into an area that has not fallen out under the excuse that there’s anticipated hair loss (behind the leading edge of your loss), as this will only accelerate the thinning. Some doctors do this, and it isn’t in your best interest, only serving to put your money in his pocket.
