Hairloss: At the temples, thinning/balding/receding. A Norwood 2-3.
I have for some time now, been experiencing issues regarding loss of hair and thinning at the temples.
It all started somewhere around 1 year and 10 months ago, and it has not progressed all too much since.
Only hairloss and thinning of hair at the temples, and no visible loss or thinning at the crown, mind you.
I've gone and ordered both "Finasterida" as well as "Rogaine Foam (Minoxidil 5%), from propecia-proscar.com (is this a legit company?). Sorry if I'm not allowed to post links, but I just felt the need to. I am NOT here to sell anyone anything.
"Finasterida" is a generic type, am I right? Can I expect it to have the same effect as the original one (Propecia)?
Does this seem like an apt regimen?
Approximately how long would you reckon it to take, before I see some noteworthy results?
Is this a good age for me to start treating and potentially regrowing some hair?
Am I likely to see new growth, if so, how long? 1 year?
I've read that one ought not have a hair transplant done at so young a age, rather wait another 10 years or so (in my case). What say you?
NOTA BENE: I will be tracking and updating the whole process. Before I begin, I will be supplying my fellow unfortunate comrades with a couple of photographies of my "situation".
You have my thanks!

Thought I'd post my experience with Dr. Arocha in Houston Texas. You can check out my bio for my background and pre and post op pictures.
I did a lot of research before deciding on where to go or even if I was going to have a procedure. I'm very glad that I did. First, I searched based on the best results I could find, without taking location into account. After months of going through the internet and hair restoration forums I had narrowed it down to a four doctors. Of those four, the best, most natural results I found based on reviews and patients posts was Dr. Arocha. Luckily he was actually instate which made the choice a no-brainer.
The consultation went well, he was very honest and realistic in regards to what could be achieved based on my donor site. He and his team were very thorough and attentive, they answered any and all questions I could come up with. Needlessly to say, I called the next day to schedule the procedure.
Currently, I am 4 days post operation and all went exceedingly well. Dr. Arocha and his team were first rate and I couldn't be happier with the experience thus far. The surgery itself went rather quickly and painlessly. His team made me feel very comfortable and relaxed throughout procedure and there after. I have posted pictures in my albums of the areas they worked on from pre-op as well as from the day after the procedure. I will periodically update with new pictures as I heal. So far the healing is going well, very little discomfort and I am very excited by what I've seen so far. I had 1727 grafts, and I am not sure yet of the breakdown as far as how many were H1, H2 or H3, but will update that information after my followup visit next week.
Anyhow, just thought I should share my experience, since those of you that had shared yours really helped me. Feel free to PM me with any questions at all and I will try to get back to you soon. Good luck!
