hello im 19 from london, i want a hair transplant, but dont want telogen shock, i would like to have a hair transplant as soon as possible, but do i need to be taking a drug eg propecia to avoid it long before my operation or can i start just before, also would it be worth having the operation w/out drugs and hopeing telogen shock did not occur
At 19, I would be hesitant to have a hair transplant. You need to have your hair loss measured and should absolutely be on Propecia for a trial of at least a year. Have measurements for miniaturization taken prior to starting Propecia so that they could be compared after a year on the drug, and a good doctor can then determine if you have the hair loss under control. The last thing you should be considering at this time is a hair transplant. As I say all the time, Let the Buyer Beware. No one will protect you other than you. Look at my website and become familiar with what we do and the field of hair transplantation in general.
