i am 25 and i was just starting to loose hair(have a small bald spot in ‘U’ shape at the crown and can be covered easily) . My doc confirmed it as pattern baldness and asked me to use finasteride and minoxidil 5%. i dont want to get bald at any age. So,instead of loosing hair after 10 years or whenever hair loss beats propecia and getting hair transplant,why not let the hair loose now and get a HT,so that i can save the money on drugs for years. My doc said thats stupid.whats your opinion?
I think it is a bad idea to wait for all your hair to fall out and then have hair transplant. First, it may not all fall out. Second, you will become balder when you are younger and the medication may delay this for years. You have a limited amount of permanent hair that can be used for hair transplantation. The cost of the drug is much, much less than a hair transplant.
