im from south africa. im 22 years old and losing hair from the front to the back.im busy using minoxidil.its working a little bit but not to much.do you know of any good hair doctors in south africa as good as you for hair implants? i would really appreciate your help. thank you and best regards
Rogaine / minoxidil does not work well for the frontal area, while Propecia does work nicely at preventing hair loss in a person of your age. The effects of Propecia will probably impact the entire head if you catch it early enough.
I do not know of any doctors in South Africa that I could recommend. I always go to the ISHRS (International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery) website for physician searches, but after such a search there, it did not turn up a doctor recommendation. That does not mean that there are no good doctors in South Africa. If you do find local hair doctors, please remember to conduct interviews with each physician before making any decisions about having surgery. You might also consider coming to the US, but frankly at 22 years old, I would expect that your response to Propecia is worth exploring BEFORE you consider a hair transplant.
