I have been balding since the age of 18 and am now 29. I have been taking propecia and then dutasteride for 5 years and although the process is still continuing I’m sure I would be completely bald by now if I hadn’t gone on the medication. I can see I am am advancing to a 6-7 norwood. I have thick blonde hair which sticks up and has lots of body, when i had a full head of hair as a child the barbers all commented on how thick it was and it was a nightmare to style. I would say presently i have about 20-30 hairs per square cm, less at the front and the coverage still looks ok. could i achieve good coverage from transplant procedures with a naturally looking but thin hairline?
Look at the previous blog post titled, Difference Between Norwood Class 7 Patients. In that post, you will see a man (Patient BF) that became a Class 7 patient over 10 years. He started getting transplants in the front initially and then progressed to a Class 7 after the transplants were done. So yes, you can get a transplant and continue to maintain your look.
