My question is perhaps unusual but I feel it is a valid one. I am 33 and I have been experiencing slow diffused thinning over about 7ish years. My thinning started to show in the top of my crown and slowly moved towards the mid and front. I have had no hairline depletion or recession at all.
So I have been on finasteride for about 4 months now. I also had a procedure at another clinic and had a 1.25cm*33cm strip taken and I have high density especially in the back. Anyway, grafting was done basically over the class 6 sort of layout with a back up hairline behind my current one. My total hair count was approx 7,500 hairs. I do have coarse black hair that becomes wavy when long.
Here’s my concern, though I am no where near my final result, what is the merit to doing another say more proactive procedure? That was my original plan but I mean almost in anticipation of the class 6 coming to full reality in my lifetime. Proactive grafting. Thank you in advance, you advice is greatly appreciated.
Finasteride is the best approach to your future concerns. At only 4 months on the medication, you’re not likely to see much results-wise from it, but stay the course. You could avoid surgery by taking a pill.
I am not an advocate for proactive or preventive hair transplants. My 9 months old granddaughter has a relatively large bald spot on the back of her head. I tease my son about transplanting it, but that is only a joke in a hair transplant family.
