Hair transplant surgery may be an option for you, but it won't stop your existing hair thinning. Surgery only takes hair from the sides and back of your head and puts it into balding areas.


If you are still losing hair and it's becoming more obvious after 11 months of using Propecia, you may not be a responder to the medication. Consider speaking to a hair restoration physician about increasing the dosage or about dutasteride. You may also want to add Rogaine to your regime.


Best wishes,

Add minoxidil to your regimen. Use any topical corticosteroid 2-3 times a week, give finasteride 1 more year, if you don't notice any difference drop finasteride.


Use higher percentage of minoxidil (10% lotion, may cause some side effects but don't go for 15% or something)


Use topical corticosteroid 2-3 times a week, Remember intermittent use will not have any systematic side effects.


If it still doesn't work, come back then!


Remember that sometimes medications only slow down the progression! so watch out for that.


Apologies for my pathetic English.
