Hi Doc! I really enjoy your blog and it has made a difference in my decisions regarding hair loss. I started losing hair when I was 17. I am now 39 and still have a lot left on the sides and back. I had transplants done on the top front half with good success (about ~1000 grafts) when I was 22. I started Propecia 4 months ago and notice a ton of regrowth in the area that was transplanted. Does Propecia normally work better in the crown or will that need to be transplanted also? With the success I’m having in the front, and even the original hairline from 20 years ago, I’m “hoping” that the crown will sprout healthy hair soon. Thanks for your time!!
Propecia is more effective in the crown than in the front. It’s great that you’re seeing so much success with the medication, but it’s quite unusual for someone that has been experiencing hair loss for over 20 years to see regrowth like you’re describing. Your story is interesting and may have value to some of our readers. Thanks for sharing!
