This is Dan following up 4 years later. Unfortunately the hair that was transplanted has thinned and started to fall out. I have used propecia, rogaine, nioxin shampoo & conditioner religiously, directly after transplant. I am disappointed in the fact I was told transplant hairs never will be affected, as they are "resistant" to DHT. I was a little taken back when I went back to Dr. Alexander and I was basically told, "i must be in a shedding faze". I spent alot of money on the procedure only to have the trasplanted hair thin to the point it's very noticable.  I was told by Dr. Alexander before my transplant April 1st 2015 that I may need another transplant later in life, but behind where this transplant would be because the transplanted hair will not thin or go away. Which I was ok with because I know hair loss is progressive, but it shouldn't happen exactly where I had the transplant. I dont know what to do Dr. Alexander offered to do another surgery for again what I paid the first time almost 9k.  I guess no guarentee In life and no help unless I drop another 9k.  Dr Alexander was great and did a good job at the time. I have no idea why the "permanent DHT resistant hair" is falling out. And I did FUT and have a large linear scar where now shaving my head is not a viable option. Please help with advice on what I should do. I desperately looking for a solution and help. It just baffles me that I would be now having to have to pay again 4 years later to have the same exact thing done.

Your hair looks wet and in a very bright bathroom in the 4 years later, but dry and in a dim room before..

Unfortunately, I dont have just scalp focused pictures after a year. Truthfully at that point everything was amazing and looked just the same as 6 months that I showed. I was happy with that and it never got any better or worse, until recently. I can post pictures from Facebook around that time if it helps, so you can see the hairline.  This started happening around September of 2018 when I actually noticed and got sick to my stomach and the pictures I posed are from yesterday. Unfortunatly it is just getting worse.  This was my worst fear.

I’m sorry to hear about what you’re going through and hope you can figure out what’s going on. Maybe follow up with another well known doctor or dermatologist specializing in hair loss?
