Hi hdude,

I just contacted him to bring him back in for a followup visit!!! We can't wait to see how he looks now! Once he comes back, I'll update the photos. Thanks for taking the time to look.

This is a great result and a really interesting case. I know propecia is recommended and advised when getting a transplant. I am 28 and have a similar hair loss pattern to this patient. I have more hair then he does currently. I hate taking meds even though I have started Propecia, though I am seriously considering stopping the use. I am curious, what did it seem like he was progressing towards, a V or VI? Does he have enough left for a second decent sized procedure should the rest go? This case gives me hope that I can do the same.

Hi GB83,

Thank you for taking the time to view the result. Here are the answers to your questions. He was miniaturizing in a NW 4V pattern (retaining hair in the forelock and bridge), so his hair still effectively combed over when he wore it longer. Comb overs, like hats, mask hair loss. Without the benefit of his transplant eventually he likely would have developed into a NW 5 or 6. He has enough donor in reserve to do 2 to 3 more procedures plus FUE if needed. Let me know if you have any other questions!

Thanks for the response Kira. Do you see a decent amount of patients that do not take fin? Pretending that the bridge and forelock are gone, would he have enough donor to cover all of this sufficiently?

Hello GB83,

Not a problem. Yes, Dr. Arocha does see a decent amount of patients who do not take finasteride. This particular patient, given the scenario you described, would have ample donor to do two to three additional procedures.

Bowl 81,

Thank you! Updates on him coming soon
