    Do you mind sharing how old you were when you had your first surgery in 2008? Iím seeing plenty of people under 25 getting thousands of grafts in the front third. Of course some results look great for now...

    Hi Buzz

    My first surgeries were in the late 90ís, my first repair surgery was 2008. I was 42 going on 43.

    I looked at your thread. Your hair looks ok to me. I would not do anything if I were you. If you can genuinely see thinning, maybe consider the meds to prevent future loss.

    If Iíd known about Finasteride way back then, maybe Iíd never have needed a HT.

    Hope that helps you.

    Thanks for the response. My hairs deteriorated since my last pics ~7 months ago. Being 24 and shedding what I consider to be a lot of hair daily, Iíd be silly to undergo surgery now. Iíve been on Fin almost two years and min for over 3... but no sign of the hair lost stabilising...yet. Iíll keep my fingers and toes crossed that Iíll be a good candidate one day, and can attack it with a plan, as you eventually did!

    All the best.

    Thanks mac, when you say 'managing the donor', do you mean making sure to go with a good doctor? Or just continuing to take propecia? I think my donor is still ok but obviously every little bit helps.

    Jealous of your amazing head of hair anyway! Also want to say that it's great you come back on the forum to show your results and help others out. Cheers.

    Have you had a consultation with a HT doctor or seen your family doctor just in case it is some other reason you are losing your hair?

    I had an HT with Dr Feriduni in Belgium in 2011, still very happy with the results, and if/when life permits I'm quite keen to go back for a second go. I'm conscious that donor hair is a 'precious resource' so I'm interested in anything that would help, or tips, or whathaveyou.
