I have been facing hair loss for the past 8-9 years, but for the last 2-3 years the hair loss has turned really bad. I think that particularly because of my profession (IT Service), shifts take a toll on the body.
I have decided to go for a hair transplant within 3 months time. Currently I am on Propecia (finasteride (1mg), Follihair and proanagen topical solution to keep my existing hair intact.
My question is, should I continue it up to my hair restoration surgery? And, also can you please suggest if doctors recommend medical hair loss treatments after the procedure performed to keep hair loss at bay? The consultant I went through suggested you won’t need any medicines in the future after the surgery is done as they are going to provide me with two platelet rich plasma (PRP) sessions after the 1st and 2nd month after surgery to support hair growth.
If you wish to keep your existing hair then you must continue to take medication after the hair transplant. The surgery only fills the regions where balding has taken place.
If you do not take medication after the hair transplant the hair that is transplanted should grow fine (depending on the clinic you have chosen) but the native hair will continue to fall. This is a fact that is indisputable.
