I am transgender male to female, and have male pattern thinning. I have been on hrt and antiandrogens for 2 years and Proscar and Minoxodil for 8 months. I consulted a hair transplant surgeon about transplants on the crown and top of my head, and after a video microscope evaluation he said that he cannot do transplants as there is no room for grafts. He stated that I have not really lost any hair and have great density, just that the calibre of the hair had diminished. Do you think given more time on hrt, antiandrogens, proscar, and minoxodil, that the miniaturized follicles may recover to terminal thickness and if not what other options do I have?
If your hair is miniaturizing, then the hormones and complex medications you are taking may be the cause of your problem. Hair transplants, where there are normal densities of hair, may not help solve your problem. I couldn’t tell you if more time will for sure help your hair.
