Its been 8 months since my 2nd HT and I got 2100 grafts. of those 2100, i got 400 grafts in the temple area with left side getting 250 grafts and the right side 150 grafts. My recipient temple area was fairly dense but the doctor suggested that I should get 400 grafts in the temple region. Can the newly placed grafts in the temple area destroy my existing hair follicles?
I had this HT in september 2007 and I have been on propecia since september 2005. can this HT still damage the existing surrounding hairs?
Whatever damage you had from the hair transplant (shock loss) should be over by now. Ask your doctor these questions. What you are seeing with your eyes is real, so he should be able to comment on what he sees when he examines you. Although the use of Propecia has shown good value at preventing shock loss, it is not 100% the case. When it comes to hair loss, there is no sure thing.
