Thank you for this site. I’m certain it must be frustrating at times getting the same questions over and over (read the old posts people!!!!), but let me assure you that your time is not wasted. Many of us will certainly be coming to you in the future because of the site.
My question is as follows: If an individual starts taking propecia, then a few years later decides to get a transplant, will the transplant doctor still be able to predict the progression of hair loss in order to properly assess what needs to be done, or will the drug make this difficult (because the doctor won’t be able to see the ‘natural’ progression because (hopefully) the drug has effected the normal hair loss)?
i.e. I’m suggesting that the transplant doctor was not the one to suggest the drug years before, nor has access to any previous records.
When looking at Propecia induced hair growth or preservation, you can always see what area has been saved or regrown because the genetically impacted hair will have a high percentage of miniaturized hair easily seen under microscopic examination of the scalp. So do not fret, the ability to predict a master plan in a person over 30 is relatively easier to do than you may think. The ability to predict the final hair loss pattern is less with younger men, certainly those under 24 years old.
