So, personally, I straight up just don’t want to use finasteride and don’t want to be on a pill that regulates my hormones for the rest of my life. If you have a good donor region, like 8000 potential grafts, can you forgo finasteride and still get a good hair result just from a transplant(s)?
Men under 30 have a higher risk of losing native or miniaturized hairs with a hair transplant. The older you get, the less the risk. Finasteride prevents the loss of these miniaturized hairs, but as you point out, if you are willing to spend the money and your have 8000 lifetime grafts, you can do a hair transplant without finasteride.
