I’ve been a lurker for awhile and have learned a lot of helpful info from this community. I’ve been dealing with baldness since around high school, when I noticed my hairline receding. I experimented with Rogaine and Propecia and was able to keep density and restore my hairline somewhat, but out of fear of impotence and such I retired the meds and have my hopes on one day getting a hair transplant.
Now more than 10 years later, my hairloss has progressed and I’ve been forced to buzz my head constantly with more hairline recession and thinning at the crown. I’m not sure when I’ll be ready to make the hair transplant jump, but have been recently looking more into SMP, since I already keep a buzzcut.
My question is, if I were to go ahead and get SMP done, while still hoping to get a hair transplant in the future as hair thinning continues, will the SMP procedure complicate a future transplant or ruin candidacy? Is it worth to spend money on both? Ideally would love to have a head full of hair again.
You can do Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) and then down the road, if you need a hair transplant you can still do it. Be sure that you find a medical group that does both so that they have experience with it like we do. Your strategy sounds good to me. Look at our website: https://scalpmicropigmentation.com/
