What do you think about filling on the crown on 39 yr old because that is where my hair loss is. I was told that I am in good shape because most of a person’s hair loss happens between 20 and 40. They also told me because I am on propecia that chances are very good I can keep most of my hair. Please let me know you thoughts.
A crown transplant uses hair from the donor area, which may be needed for frontal area transplantation should you continue to bald. If the hair loss is controlled, then transplanting the crown in a person of your age may be reasonable, provided that your donor density is good, your laxity is good, and the pattern of genetic hair loss is predicted. Being on Propecia may help slow or stall the hair loss, but long term planning is critical.
It is also reasonable to postpone transplants in the crown for 8 months or so if you are just starting on Propecia, as sometimes the drug has remarkable results on restoring hair loss in the crown. It generally takes more hair than most doctors think to fill in the crown, so balancing supply and demand in the short and long term requires special estimation skills when transplanting the crown. Be sure that the doctor you select has those skills.
