You frequently mention the safeguard of taking Propecia to prevent shock loss. You also mention how shock loss is more frequent in younger men and so I’m left with the impression that Propecia will only help young men prevent shock loss. I’m 36. I seem to have stabilized my hair loss with propecia. If I’m a NW 3 and have been on propecia for 15 months, what are my chances of shock loss? Also, if I’m going for a mature hairline, how many grafts are needed for a typical NW3?
I believe that Propecia can and does prevent shock loss in anyone having a hair transplant at any age (although nothing is 100%). The young man is most vulnerable to this complication. At your age, your chances of developing shock loss are slim.
