Should I Try Propecia Before a Hair Transplant?

Question:

Should I consider trying Propecia prior to a hair transplant? If so, how do I go about getting it and how much does it cost?

Answer:

Since hair transplant surgery does nothing to prevent the progression of pattern baldness, non-surgical treatments like Propecia (finasteride) and Rogaine (minoxidil) are usually considered an integral part of a patient's long term hair restoration plan. If your hair loss hasn't stabilized, it would be a good idea to consider Propecia to attempt to slow down or stop its progression.

Your family doctor or a hair restoration physician can prescribe Propecia for you. To consult one of our hair loss doctors, click here.
