A few comments.  Your hair looks pretty good, you should do everything you can to keep what you have.  You should take a lower dose of finasteride to try and keep it.  There is another medication coming within the next couple of years called Breezula, that's a topical, that might be the first addition in a long time to the weapons we have to fight hair loss.  Consider topical finasteride.  There are American doctors that sell it.  Maybe use one of the laser caps too.  Your case is a perfect example of why someone as young as you should not have wasted precious grafts in the crown.  If you end up trying body hair grafts, start with a small session and see how it turns out.  Do not start by having thousands of grafts.  Remember, with additional transplants comes the risk of shock loss.    

I am hoping to get topical fin soon. Yes very good point re Crown, but I think it did need some work. Now I would just like the frontal area to addressed. Question, can transplanted hair also be lost due to shock loss and never come back?

I would definitely contact Eugenix. I have found them to be very honest and they will be able to help in what options you will have. Another thought is have you considered SMP to give you the illusion of more density? All the best!

I would consider Eugenix. I just have one concern and it is a political one if I may - I live in London but my origin is Pakistani. There is political tension between the two countries and I am not sure if I’ll have a smooth journey into india. Also I am told if you are of Pakistani origin and have a British passport, it is still very difficult to get a visa or the visa process is very painful.

Just a heads up here, Eugenix only does beard hair, they dont chest hairs, leg hairs....etc

No no. That's not true. We do perform body hair transplant as well.

We have patients where we have taken donor hair from the chest, thighs, pubic region etc. Also, we have a patient where we have covered his pubic scar by using scalp hair.

Okay, thats very strange then because I was consulted by someone named Abhinay Singh who works for Eugenics and who told me they dont chest hairs at all. His email is abhinay@eugenix.in.  His exact words were "Beard hair has a good success rate but not chest. Would avoid using them".

Is he perhaps at a different location in India then the one you work at??

Please could you start your own thread/post and ask the forum this question? This is the best way to get our advice. Thanks.

True. You are correct. Chest hair does not have a good survival rate and neither do thighs and pubic hair. Therefore, we usually discourage the use of body hair for transplantation because the outcome would not be satisfactory. Especially in patients where we can take the donor from the scalp and beard, we stress on using them rather than body hair. 

The cases where we have had body hair used are ones where they have had no donor left. One of the most recently done patients with body hair is in the forum also. He continuously posts his updates.

No I think he meant stretching the old scar. I’m pretty sure he meant that. 

This doesn't make sense. The old scar is cut out when the new strip is taken. At that point the old scar will not exist anymore.

Question for everyone here, can transplanted hair also thin or become weaker?

i’ve been told that my transplanted hair are becoming thinner possibly due to a skin condition on the scalp - not sure if true but that is someone’s opinion.

thanks

@xabi86 I had my first hair transplant 12 years ago when I was 25 years old to rebuild my frontal hairline.

Due to the fact that I didn’t take Finasteride I lost a lot of my transplanted hairs and several have thinned out. 

Even transplanted hairs suffer from your predetermined genetic hairloss and you can only prevent it if you take Finasteride for the rest of your life.

That is wonderful news. Hope the consultation was satisfying. 

The transaction rate for chest hair is about 5% to 10%.

You can share your scalp pictures and we could assess your situation.

@Gabreille Nelson Mukhia Here are my pictures that I also shared previously in this thread. Dr Rahal thinks my native hair have all gone now and all that is left is transplanted hair and he thinks they are thinning.

I’m just in a bad place right now due to the condition of the hair and it’s a huge mental burden. 

I am told beard and body is the best option for me to get a full coverage.

Thank you for sharing your pictures. It is true that it looks like your native hair have gone away. Hence, it looks a little sparse. But the good news is that with a mixture of beard and scalp hair, you can regain density. It is possible to have a good coverage with a conservative approach. 

I will ask our doctors what they think and will write it here for you.

The doctors feel that we can easily harvest 2000 grafts more from the donor pictures that you have shared. However, Finasteride intake has been recommended for hair retention.

The following picture has been marked for your reference.

Please could you also share some beard pictures?
