Thank you for all your advice everyone - much appreciated. I’m not rushing into anything and have much more research to conduct before I make a decision. I think I’ll probably wait another 6 months on the finastride to see what effect it has. I would say that I have always had a relatively high hairline and probably started receding at 16 so it’s been a rather gradual process. Hopefully finastride should help halt or slow this process. I agree on the hairline that someone suggested - looks much better! Is there any difference between Dr. Farjo and Dr. Reddy? Which method, FUT or FUE do you think would be most appropriate? Thanks again for your advice. S
Hello, I've been flicking through many of these threads while conducting my research into the best approach for managing/correcting my receding hairline. I'm 25 and from the UK. I've been taking Finasteride for about 6 months but am unsure as to the results. I appear to be shedding hair still. Is this normal? I've had a few consultations already and have been advised that to restore my hairline I will require 2000 grafts in a transplant procedure. I have a good, thick, donor area and no loss on the crown. I would like to know whether it is advisable for me to opt for a transplant and, if so, who the best surgeons are in the UK? Please note, I am not willing to travel outside the UK. Any advice would be greatly received. (See pictures attached)
