Hello Doctor. I have not found a satisfactory answer to my question. Please help me.
I am a 43 year old Caucasian male. I started losing hair at the crown at 36 years old. I have baldness on the crown (8cm in diameter). I have a few strands at the crown that are healthy. I’ve always had great hairline corners that have advanced very little (especially at the temples). My baldness would crown with NW2 NW3. I still have very straight hair, bulky, and heavy on my head. I have plans to have surgery at 46 years old because it will be the best time for me.
My questions are:
1) My crown will increase in size?
2) At what age can I feel safer?
Please, I know that the answers are hypothetical. But I wonder if baldness never ends.
Congratulations for your work. Thanks for your replies. Sorry my english.
You may continue to lose more hair in the crown, but I have no way to know for sure without examinations. There’s also no way for me to give you an age at which your hair loss will stop. Everyone is different, and there’s no math that will tell me exactly how long someone loses hair for.
The best treatment for crown loss is the drug finasteride, which is available by a doctor’s prescription (talk to your doctor).
