    I see all of these guys spending so much time in the cutting edge section, all very unhappy people, fighting about doctors offering this BS or that BS. They are all trying to avoid doing what you have done for yourself and that's moving forward with your life with the proven stuff that we have today, like transplants and Propecia.

    It's great that you're happy with everything!
    Thanks again, and I agree. I go to the cutting edge section every now and then to sort of keep an eye on any developments, but it's too easy to get sucked in and go down that rabbit hole. I do have the luxury of having minimal loss and having had a procedure that brings me essentially to a full head of hair, so it's easier for me than for many others to simply shrug and go my own way. But I can't spend hours a day on the forums parsing over every shred of data about every possible new treatment.

    Hi Win,

    I haven't been around lately, been in South America building some Condos.

    Anyway, I just wanted to tell you your hair look really magnificent.

    I don't have any recent photos, I have one from Breckenridge Colorado in April and one from about a week after my transplant in August of last year...going on my 12 month in a few weeks.

    Been saying I need to make a profile with pictures from start to finish like you and others did, I will in the near future, I promise, I been really busy the last several months with different business ventures



    This past April in Breckenridge Colorado.



    Anyway, I'm happy with the results...I had 2500 FUT, I'm on Propecia and Minoxidil. I don't see any hair loss now, and I'm very happy with the results, like you.

    You do have MUCH more hair than I. I'll be 57 in November, so not having a really thick head of hair doesn't bother me.

    BUT, I'm getting another procedure done this fall or winter, my doctor said another 1,000 grafts should completely fill in everything nicely. So what the hell, may as well do it, what's a couple-five Grand, better living the life we want than caring about a few grand.

    Anyway, be well my friend.

    Cheers,

    Dale

    I think your result looks very natural Dale.

    We are very close in age and even your density looks natural.

    Best wishes to you on your upcoming touch-up procedure.

    This has been an illuminating thread.

    The author of the thread stated that long after the surgery he was still taking Propecia. Is he still on Propecia? What would happen if you stop it? Is it really necessary 2-3 years post-op?

    Well, this old thread just got reactivated.

    Yes, I'm still taking Propecia, and I'm also taking Avodart, which is its more-potent cousin. I continued to lose some, albeit not much, hair on Propecia, but Avodart basically stops my loss.

    It's been 26 months since my procedure and the work continues to look great. I wear it long on top and swept back, and I'm thrilled with the results.

    To answer your question, YES, you need to continue to use Propecia after you have a procedure. If you stop using it, you will lose all the native hair that you would have lost while you were on the medication. As a result, Propecia is particularly important for guys that have had transplants... if you bald normally without a transplant, you'll just look like a bald guy, but if you bald normally WITH a transplant, you'll have a very funny look going on.

    ... but still better than a bald look, surely? Isn't it possible to distribute the grafts in such a way that, while not all that dense, they still provide good cosmetics even in case of any other hair loss?

    What I'm hearing you say is that an HT "without consequences" is indicated only for those who are at the very end of the balding process.

    In any other case, what's the difference between HT+Propecia vs. just Propecia?
