I am 46 years old, and my baldness can be described as worse than your Class 6 patient. I am not planning on having any more children. I have a rapid heartbeat (mytral valve prolapse). Here are my questions..
1. Would I be a candidate for hair transplantation?
2. Would I be asked to start taking Propecia or Avodart before or after the procedure?
3. Would taking any of these medications aggravate rapid heartbeat?
- If you have male pattern baldness and your donor hair is in good standing, I would assume that you could be a hair transplant candidate. In fact, patients like you (Norwood class 6) are some of the happiest after a hair transplant, because it can dramatically change your appearance (for the better). See our galleries of hundreds of before/after patients to get an idea of what to expect.
- I generally recommend Propecia (not Avodart) for patients with male pattern baldness, but it is not a mandatory requirement. You are asking me about generalizations without an examination, so my answers are generalized.
- Propecia would not produce a rapid heartbeat.
