I notice most females get transplanted hairs into diffusely thin areas and seem to get better results than men in those areas. In your experience, do men tend to get more shock loss than females? And if so why? Would a male who has female pattern balding (mostly diffuse thinning down the middle front area) have a higher chance for shock loss even if they are on Propecia versus a women with the same balding pattern?
Women are not always good hair transplant candidates because they usually have diffuse thinning, including in the “donor area” (rim of hair around the back and sides). Contrary to what you may have seen, women do not necessarily have better results than men. What you may be noticing is that women tend to keep their hair longer, curl their hair, layer their hair, or style their hair that is more conducive to disguising their hair loss.
There is no difference in shock loss for men (who are on Propecia) or women. Young men that are not on Propecia are the ones that get the worst shock loss, but both sexes can get it.
