I recently underwent hair transplant surgery and I’m wondering whether or not I can stop my Propecia (finasteride) regimen now that I’ve had the procedure. Should I continue taking the medication? What will happen if I stop?
There are a lot of factors involved. If you are experiencing hair loss in the front (hairline and frontal scalp) you will probably be good with a hair transplant and not lose a “ton more.” If you are losing in the crown area, you will mostly likely lose more if you don’t stay on Propecia. Again, family history is a big factor too.
Although we would normally recommend continuing Propecia (as stopping will halt and reverse all progress) it is ultimately up to you though how long you are willing to stay on the medication.
