Suggestion for HT



Hi All,

I just wanted to ask if I am at the right stage to go for a HT. As you can see in the photos I have lost sufficient hair in my frontal region and so wanted to ask if it is the right stage to go for a HT. Please find my details below.

  • My age is 28 yrs.
  • I am taking medicine (which has no side effects prescribed by doctor Dr. Shahid Shamsher in Bangalore) from the past 2.5 years. But I am not seeing much improvement in the hair growth. Can someone tell me at what stage I am currently in? The hair fall count is approximately 40 to 50 per day (sometimes more). When I started taking medicine 2.5 yrs back, the doctor told that I was in stage 4 and that I was losing it from almost 4 yrs. So, the hair loss is from nearly 6.5 yrs if the doctor is correct.
  • My skin is oily and doctor mentioned that I have a lot of sebum secretion due to which he asked me to take hair bath everyday which I am following. Is this fine or Is that leading to more hair loss?
  • Both my father and brother have lost hair. So, it is MPB.
  • The doctor recently told that I am in the right stage to go for a HT. But, I am not convinced.

Can anyone suggest any other good doctor in Bangalore whom I can consult?

Hoping to get some response.

Based on the way your hair is styled in those images, it's difficult to estimate your Norwood balding pattern. Based on your age and medication regimen, it seems like you would be a good candidate for hair transplantation. Here is a list of our recommended hair transplant surgeons: http://www.hairtransplantnetwork.com/Consult-a-Physician/hair-loss-doctors.asp.


Good luck!

Thanks for the comments Blake... Please note that I have not started with finasteride and monoxidil and the medicines that I am taking are prescribed by doctor which are not these... Do you still think that I need to go for HT or start with these medicines for sometime and then go for HT?
