I am 30 and I have had a good results from Propecia on my crown, but not good enough. Can I have my crown transplanted? What will the results be like?
You have had an excellent result from Propecia. The readers of this should first put themselves into your place and ask themselves if they would be satisfied with this result. If not, yes you can have transplants, but transplanting the crown without knowing what will happen to the front has risks. You need to know what is your worst case balding scenario. Whatever grafts you use in the crown now, will not be available for the front later if you start frontal balding. However, if your donor supply is very high, or if you don’t have a family history of extensive balding, or if you have no significant amount of miniaturization in the donor area, then saving grafts for future balding may not be a concern.
You and your doctor must lay out the long term goals and the plan that you will follow. Only you will be in a position to make the final decision.
The photo on the left was taken about 18 months ago (before taking Propecia) and is scanned from a Polariod, so please excuse the quality. The photo on the right was taken this month and shows the results of this patient’s crown after taking Propecia.
