I have been struggling with hairloss since i was 21. When i turned 23, it was really bad. My temples were gone and it was very hard to hide it.
So i went to a private clinic in the Netherlands and they told me a 1500 FUE transplant would be good. But first i had to take finasteride. I was scared of finasteride, but i decided to take it. I’m taking it everyday since april 2019. And i had made an appointement for the transplant on 6 september 2019.
It has been almost 6 months since the transplant (5,5 months). It has been 10 months since i started taking finasteride. I actually started using dualgen 15 plus (topical minoxidil and topical finasteride) 2 months after taking oral finasteride. So i would say it has been 8 months since a started using this.
Overall i’m happy with the results. I think i’m maintaining my hair. There are periods where i lose a lot of hairs and there are periods where i lose a little.
Regarding the transplant, i wish my temples were denser. I know i’m still on month 6, but i don’t really see it getting better.
At 23, chasing hair transplants sets you up for a lifetime of doing it. Wait until you get more balding before you do another hair transplant. As a general rule I don’t do hair transplants on 23 year old men because the balding patterns are usually not evident and too much of the donor supply gets used up without a good Personalized Master Plan to be able to address your future needs.
