This man had his hair wash this morning. There was no crusting on his head. I recreated his natural swirl which doesn’t show up well in these photos. The tape was placed to minimize any swelling that would follow a procedure of this size (which would otherwise produce swelling in the forehead and possibly the […]
I Have Heard That in Bald Men, Their Head Is Hot and They Lose Their Hair Because It Creates an Environment That Is Not Good for Hair Growth. There have been many jokes from bald men that hair doesn’t grow on a busy street. So they rationalize that they lose hair because they are smarter […]
What If the Donor Area Is Not Particularly Dense Though? I always measure the donor area density and total supply and then match the donor area to your ‘worst’ case possible hair loss. I always create a Master Plan individualized for each patient so that they always know what is going to happen to them. […]
I had a patient that went to India for 6 months to treat his hair loss. Center to their treatment was standing on his head many times a day. They did massage and gave some magical potions. Nothing worked so he came back and got a hair transplant and in one session he got his […]
The best test to get is the HAIRCHECK test ( https://newhair.com/baldingblog/haircheck-test-how-it-is-done-video/ ) to get a good baseline for your hair loss so you know, when you repeat the test yearly, if you are controlling it or losing the war.
This proves my point that young men (under 25 and especially under 20) have a higher benefit from taking finasteride than men over 25. Good job and stick to it and maybe you can avoid more hair loss for many years. The photo shows that the miniaturized hairs in the front seem to have become […]

Shedding after 2 years of being on finasteride usually indicates an acceleration of the genetic hair loss process for those with the genes for balding
Hair loss is progressive and this man shows why. He had a hair transplant 15 years ago in the frontal area (marked in the photo as front), and he lost hair behind the hair transplant. He is now 49, so he was 36 when he had his hair transplant. Had he been 25, it is […]
Hi doctor, what do you think of this article? https://www.reuters.com/investigates/special-report/usa-courts-secrecy-propecia/ TLDR: The article indicates that Merck appears to have lied about side mental effects of this drug. I have read the article previously. There is nothing to link finasteride to the change in behavior with absolute certainty. This type of change can happen in mental illness […]
The first sign of early recession might be miniaturized hairs that usually don’t grow to full length. I would see a doctor who can check your entire head with the HAIRCHECK test to find out if you are losing hair anywhere else. The hairs that don’t grow are most likely miniaturizing hairs that will eventually […]
Artificial hairs had been heavily advertised world-wide, many years ago. They have since been banned by most governments, but a few still allow it. This is a picture of the scarred area where the artificial hairs were eventually removed after becoming infected.
I got a hold of the operative note from the surgeon, and it was evident that the surgeon took out too much scalp and could not close the wound. The wound measured about 10 inches long and 2 1/2 inches high. When I first saw this patient the wound was infected and draining. He had […]
Thank you for your reply doctor! I live in Germany and the dermatologist, who prescribed me Finasteride, had many patients and is really not bad in terms of hair and so on. She said, that none of their patients experienced further loss. My plan was to stabilize my hair loss with Finasteride 1mg and keep […]
