Do I have to stop losing hair to get a hair transplant?

I have been experiencing hair loss for 6-7 years now and my density has kept on decreasing. I have never been on Fin, however, I did try out min for 2-3 months and then stopped using it. I see a lot of posts that suggest an HT only after your hair loss has stabilized. but how do you guys determine that? I lose hairs every day. Should I get on fin and see it I stop losing hair, and then process for an HT ?

You don’t have to wait until you get bald to get a hair transplant. Stabilization is not always possible, even with finasteride. The key is to be able to predict with reasonable certainty, what your long term hair loss pattern will be. Most men must be 26 to be able to make this prediction and that allows the surgeon to build a proper long-term Master Plan for your future hair loss. I have had men keep up with their balding without running out of donor hair in the 29 years I have been doing this type of surgery.
