View Full Version : Diffuse pattern sufferer (DPA) - will I be suitable for an HT? 24 y/o

I had a bit of success with propecia but my hair is still fairly thin. Because my hairline has barely receded since I have DPA (i think?) I can still style my hair and the loss looks less noticeable. I'm pretty positive I do NOT have DUPA. It isn't in my family history as far as i'm aware and my sides and back are as thick as they were when I started losing my hair 8 years ago (i'm 24 now).

Will I be suitable for an FUE HT at age 25? I am considering a consultation with Dr Reddy in the U.K and I intend to stay on Propecia if advised. Images of my loss pattern can be viewed here:


I'm pretty sure I have DPA because on all the "white areas" there are tonnes of miniaturised hairs which can't really be seen due to camera light.

Well honestly, transplants should only be used as your last option of action. I think you reached or almost reached a year with fin. Give it another year or higher ur minox %(your going to shed massively) if you feel your not getting anywhere. So before you think about transplants you have to give your hair sometime. It took months or even years to lose all that hair in your other post and so growing it will take even longer. Be patient and dont jump on a transplant right away. But yeah your suitable for a fue ht at 25. My 2 cents

Off topic curious about your other post - how mg of propecia do you take daily? Do you buy the generic version?
