I’m thinking about an HT, and after reading all your topics I see my biggest concern is shock loss. I’m a 61 year old male and have a high degree of miniaturization in the proposed recipient area. In one of your responses, I believe you recommended not having an HT for thinning hair?
You often recommend Propecia for younger men and say it might prevent shock loss for possibly 90+ cases? You also recommend taking Propecia 2 weeks to a month in advance of the HT(but even the day before the HT is better than not at all?). Would this advice apply to an older guy like me? Or if I’m correct that you would not advise cases of older age onset thinning to not seek HT?
Propecia works at any age to prevent shock loss. It is best to use this medication in advance of the surgery (at least 2-4 weeks). Older men generally have less hair transplant shock loss than younger men. I would need to know more about your miniaturization and your last 1-2 year history of hair loss. At 61 years old, few men are actively losing hair.
