Doc, I’ve recently taken notice that along with my frontal hair loss, I’ve been losing way more hair from the back side of my head. Since that is the permanent zone, could this have an effect on any future hair transplants? I’ve been on Proscar cut into quarters taken daily since January. And can hair length increase or influenece hairloss (as mine is just about shoulder length)? Thanks
I must sound like a broken record. To make a diagnosis, you need to have your hair mapped out for miniaturization to determine what is actually happening. If you are losing hair from the ‘permanent’ zone and you are a male, then you may have Diffuse Unpatterned Alopecia (DUPA) (see Follicular Transplantation: Patient Evaluation and Surgical Planning?). If you are a female, then this is not unusual, especially if you have genetic female hair loss. Get to a good doctor and find out what it is and then what to do about it.
