I have noticed that I’ve been losing my hair since I was about 18 years old. For the past few years , I’ve been using finasteride, nizoral, and minoxidil. It worked for a couple years but now I’m noticing that my hair has been falling at a very fast rate. I currently live in Seoul, South Korea, and I have been thinking about having a hair transplant but I’m afraid of having one at a young age.
Do you have any advice?
There are things you need to be clear of:
1) Losing hair is not fun but it may be something you may have to face. More than 50% of men face some degree of genetic hair loss. If you are worried, find a doctor who can give you a diagnosis and a Master Plan for how to possibly address the hair loss.
2) You don’t have to have a hair transplant. Losing hair does not automatically mean you need to have surgery. There may be other options such as medication or scalp micropigmentation.
3) As you live ins Seoul Korea, you can always visit my colleague Dr. Jino Kim of New Hair Institute in Seoul Korea.
