Second Procedure: Additional photos are one year post op following 2740 FU procedure to address crown, midscalp, and refinement of hairline and previous frontal areas. 2740 Total FU's :470 1's; 2156 2's; 114 3's. Tricophytic closure. They are the last five photos in the series.
This is a 60 YO male with androgenic alopecia, with thinning predominantly affecting hairline, FF, posterior FF, and bilateral temples and crown. Our plan was to recreate the frontal hairline, FF, post FF, temples and some crown.. Total area was approx 15cm x 7cm = 105 cm2, plus another 40 cm2 in crown. Decision was made to concentrate on the anterior and midscalp portion, allowing finasteride to work on the crown over the ensuing year, noting any effect at that time. Goals: Recreate hairline and FF and bilateral temple recessions, post FF and anterior crown. Wait to see how finasteride affects crown, possibly place 100 or so FU grafts there at this procedure to decrease severity of appearance.

Tricophytic closure.Patient will have second procedure of about the same number in January to address crown.
Hi, I am a 27 yr old male. I am learning about Shock loss and very concerned, any help would be greatly appreciated.
I just 2 days ago had a hair transplant of 3,000 grafts which seemed to go very well. I was told my donor hair was excellent. I had around 2,500 placed in the front half and 500 to reinforce my crown which is still in pretty good shape.
I still have most of my hair so most of the transplants went in between existing hairs. My existing hairs have not 'overly thinned' but are thinner in the front than they were 5 - 10 years ago.
I was not aware until after the procedure that it was a good idea to take Propecia prior to having a Hair Transplant.
The doctor was highly recommended from many sources so I trust him but I do have 4 big questions. (He also seemed to do a great job, but will have to wait and see!)
1. How beneficial would it have been to take Propecia prior to my HT?
2. I started taking Propecia the day after the surgery, will this help to prevent shock loss?
3. I used Rogaine for at least a year prior to the surgery, will that help prevent shock loss?
4. Is hair lost to Shock Lost gone forever? Meaning will I lose perfectly good original hair?
Any feedback would be really great.

Basically been helping my parents move, its very hot in England today so i've been wearing my white beanie hat whislt in the sun. I'm about 7.5 weeks post op and was wondering if the heat and sweat caused by me wearing a beanie hat will hurt my grafts, I know the answer is prob "nothing to worry about" but i'm a worrier and like to have someone tell me that its ok.
