Today’s revolutionary surgical hair restoration procedures allow a qualified physician to move individual follicular units (hair groupings as they occur naturally) from the sides and back of one’s scalp to balding areas. The end result is a natural looking head of hair, undetectable to even the harshest critics. And while this miracle hair transplant procedure can restore hair to completely bald areas, it does nothing to stop the progression of genetic baldness. What if hair loss continues? Will a second or even third hair transplant be required? Is there enough donor hair to keep up with the progression of baldness? Should proven medical hair loss treatments be used in conjunction with hair transplant surgery? Why or why not?
Forum member “Roy” is about to undergo surgical hair transplantation with Coalition member Dr. Ron Shapiro and wants to know what risks are involved in proceeding into surgery without taking Propecia (finasteride) to attempt to slow down continued loss. Visit “Going into Hair Transplant Surgery without Medication” to discuss why non-surgical hair loss products complement a hair transplant and the risks included in not taking them.
