About Us

A 21-year-old man is wondering if it is worth getting a hair transplant without taking finasteride, as the idea of taking long-term medication is not appealing to him. He says that he’s seen good results in people who’ve undergone hair transplants without finasteride, and that he’s willing to wait until he’s older to undergo one himself. He also asks if his balding father would be able to achieve full coverage after multiple hair transplants.

New York hair restoration specialist Amiya Prasad, M.D. reviews his concerns in this video, and discusses how a hair transplant is not advisable for a younger person, especially with rapid hair loss progression, why even multiple hair transplants cannot achieve full scalp coverage, and the importance of a hair loss management strategy including finasteride at a younger age:
