I’m a 27-year-old white male with a receding hairline. I’m afraid of finasteride sides, so I’m interested in having hair from elsewhere on my head put into the forehead area. However, will I just keep losing hair further up where it wasn’t implanted. And I read the hair loss should be “stable” to do this surgery, what does that mean? Thanks
Men develop a patterned balding and that pattern is set in your genetics and could be just frontal, or crown (like mine was) or almost all over your head. The first thing you need to do is to find a good, honest, doctor who will spend time with you to develop a Master Plan for your hair loss. Make sure that the doctor spends enough time to project where your future pattern might go (something I do often with a HAIRCHECK test – https://baldingblog.com/haircheck-test-how-it-is-done-video/ and a measure of your donor density https://baldingblog.com/i-am-trying-to-find-out-if-i-have-enough-hair-to-be-a-good-candidate-for-a-hair-transplant/ ). You have a limited number of hairs that can be moved around and you must command those precious reserves of hair that will probably never go through the balding process. In the hands of a good, experienced and honest (some doctors only care about money), you should work with your doctor to build a Master Plan for the rest of your life that will balance your short and long term hair loss against your limited permanent hair. I have been doing this on many men and as a result, my reviews in various forums are generally very good.
