I’m 18 year old male. I had surgery about 4 months ago. 2 months after I noticed my long hair has been falling out in clumps of 15-20 hairs in one pull or when I brushed it. It has been going on now for 2 months and my hair got very thin very fast. I have noticed a bunch of new tiny hairs growing in front of my hair line but after reaching 1 cm in lenght they had stopped growing and some of them are falling out as well.
I would be greatful to hear your answer.
Am I to assume that your surgery 4 months ago was not a hair transplant? Hair transplantation at 18 years old is very unusual and in most situations, not appropriate. Hair transplants can accelerate hair loss in an 18 year old and that is one reason this is rarely done. If you have genetic balding and are not on the drug Propecia, I would suspect that you have an extremely high chance of acceleration of your hair loss. If your miniaturiation is high, then that makes hair loss in an 18 year old almost a sure bet. The amount of hair loss and the distribution of the hair loss will reflect your genetic pattern. This sounds like shock hair loss with the acceleration of your patterned balding and may be permanent.
If you are not on Propecia, it may not be too late to start it and try to hold on to what you still have. I would like to know who did your hair transplant (if that was the surgery you meant)?
