Hi Dr. Rassman. I’ve heard quite a few stories claiming that generic finasteride is not as effective as Propecia. Do you prescribe both, and if so have you noticed a difference in your patients responses? Some patients have reported reduced effectiveness when they switch from propecia to the genetics but there are a few manufacturers […]
I have decent coverage but low hair density and when I push it around I can see it’s a bit thin up top especially under super bright light. Will fin alone help with thickening up the top and increasing the density? I really don’t want to take min bc it’s not extremely bad. Thanks. Yes, […]
I’ve been trying to get some sort of idea of about how much a hair transplant would cost to just fill in my temples. I’ve been on finasteride and minoxidil for over a year now with great results, but my temples are still thinner than i would like. Anyone able to give a rough estimate […]
You should get a HAIRCHECK test to find out if you are losing hair and how much is lost (see here: https://newhair.com/baldingblog/haircheck-test-how-it-is-done-video/ . I always tell patients to be smart about hair loss and get Metrics on the degree of hair loss you have and hook up with a good doctor to manage it so that […]
I heard that hair falling is an autoimmune disease, with the body attacking its own hairs. Then, there is Wim Hof (google him), that has scientifically shown to control consciously so many processes in his body that were previously thought to be impossible. Some forms of alopecia have an autoimmune cause. This is more common […]
Shaving your head will not change anything about your balding problem. The truth hurts!
Most of the stem cell treatment being offered are scams. A few doctors have built a reputation for delivering stem cell treatments and have made a fortune on men chasing the impossible. There are no stem cell treatment that are known to work.
I no longer get morning wood and my erections are only about 70% what they were before fin. Been telling myself it’s all in my head, it’ll resolve itself in time, and even that it’s probably caused by other meds I’m on (SSRIs). Well it’s been around 9 months now and there’s been no improvement […]
Here are some considerations I’ve had before jumping into the HT route and wanted to share these with the community to get feedback and possibly provide some additional options for those in a similar position: Background on me: 29M diffuse thinning throughout top of head. Finasteride/Minox for the last ~6 years that has slowed, but […]
Say I‘m 22 now and my final pattern is NW6 which I will reach by the time I turn 30. I am NW 2 now and my hair loss is not aggressive, medium I would say. Can I maintain the hair for long? If the final pattern is that severe? The only possibility is the […]
i’d really appreciate if you could have a glance at these pictures taken with a microscope to confirm whether i have dupa hair loss/miniaturization. pardon the oily hair and hair fragments (recent haircut) :) There are 9 slightly miniaturized hairs (arrows point to them) out of a total 50 hair count. This is not DUPA […]
Yes, especially when the hair loss is in the crown, minoxidil can be very effective. It is less effective in the frontal area.
I have these bumps since I have had my FUE. What is happening to me? You have what appears to be burried grafts from a faulty FUE technique. These are probably infected buried grafts which will probably require surgical drainage by an expert.
I’m getting an FUT procedure done next week. I’m excited and a little nervous. I’m 29. Still have some hair left on top of head. But my temples are completely bald. Can someone share their experience? Was it worth the effort and money? After how long did you see the results? Any shock loss of existing […]
Yes it does look like cobblestonning. I would want to know how your surgeon placed his grafts, what was the size of the grafts. Go back and see your surgeon?
