I really never believed in hair growth products. But after you mentioned Propecia I tried it. It took a while but I eventually saw a great difference in the thickness of my hair! Then, when I stopped using it, the hair went back as it was before using Propecia. I knew this would happen but I wanted to know if I was just imagining the change.
Hence, my question: You advised using Propecia prior to having the HT procedure. Its seems I must use it before the HT and also before the full effects kick in or how will we know how much density is normal and how much is density is due to Propecia?
If I had a choice I guess I would rather have the great results of a HT without the added cost of meds. But if they compliment each other, well, it may be worth the prescription price. Thanks
I believe that every young man should be on Propecia/finasteride if they have genetic balding. This drug will also offer some protection against shock loss that would be common with a hair transplant, and you should be on the drug at least a couple of weeks prior to having a hair transplant. If your thinning is early, then Propecia may be enough (just as you described), but if you lost hair in the front, it would be unlikely that the drug will return it. So these two modalities (transplant and drug) work nicely together and yet they do compliment each other.
