Between the ages of 20-23 I went to an Norwood 2. Since the shedding of the hair at my temples, my hair has thickend elsewhere. Can a hair transplant be done just at the temples? Who could I contact for such a procedure?
What I am about to say relates to your age of 20-23. I would recommend first that you get your hair mapped out for miniaturization to determine the degree of the genetic hair loss that you have now and to get a good baseline for future reference. Then, based upon that examination (under the direction of a doctor), you may start on Propecia for your hair loss and take it for at least 8 months to 1 year and see if the temples return to the levels you want. Propecia may help regrow hair in the temple area. At the very least, it is worth an attempt. Beware of any person who would recommend surgery for you because he/she may not have your best interest in mind. I feel strongly that a trusting, supportive doctor-patient relationship is necessary in the hair restoration process. If you have any questions about the above information, I would be happy to answer them by email, telephone, or in person. If you live too far from California, I am more than happy to try to recommend a dermatologist in your area. I can be reached by phone at 800-NEW-HAIR.
