No Propecia - FUE


#1

I wanted to know two things about FUE and medicines.

  1. How common is it for a patient to NOT use Propecia and still get an FUE?

  2. How quickly can one begin to use Rogain after an FUE?

do a serch on the results posted by hair restoration clinics and you will rarely find a patient that had surgery and doesnt use propecia.

First of all results that are not a combination of propecia and surgery are never so impressive as the ones posted

second if you dont use propecia and you are in the earlier stages of hairloss you will have to go in for surgery all the time chasing your progressive hairloss

If you are destined to be nw6 you will have a result that is poor due to donor limitations

In my opinion if you dont use propecia and you early in the hairloss stage transplants are a waste of time and money and you will never be happy, most ethical doctors will tell you all this during a consultation. If you are nw6 and you just want some hair on top so that you dont look completely bald then it can be a good decision.

I don’t understand why people are so scared of using Propecia. It’s a very safe medication for hair loss IMO.

While I agree medications to prevent future hairloss are an important part, and keeping every hair that you have is always a good thing to combine with the transplant, I have seen plenty of patients that decided not to take meds and have a really nice result.

What I mentioned before is something to think about and consider. If you have a hair transplant for the front 1/2 of your head to rebuild your hairline, temples and vertex and decide not to take medications to maintain your own haor, then you should plan on an additional procedure as you age for the crown.

It’s simple planning.
