Should I Choose Hair Transplant Surgery or Natural Hair Loss Treatments to Regrow Hair?

Question:

Do you think it's better to have hair restoration surgery or to go a natural route when it comes to growing hair?

Answer:

Balding men and women seeking hair restoration options should consult with a hair loss expert in order to determine the best course of action. Some patients may benefit from medical hair loss treatments likes Rogaine (minoxidil) and Propecia (finasteride) alone while others may want to pursue hair transplant surgery in conjunction with medical treatments in order to maximize their results. Not everyone is a candidate for surgical hair restoration and no treatment currently available can restore 100% of a patient’s lost hair.

There are currently no proven, natural remedies for the treatment of androgenic alopecia (genetic hair loss).
