I would like to know a rough estimate for a transplant procedure done on the crown of a stage 2 or 3. My donor area is thick with heavy groupings of 3’s and 4’s.I recently went to a hair club facility and was not impressed with how they try to push topical treatments at you for what I feel is an unreasonable amount of money. I would rather get a transplant and know there will be a definate result in the appearance of my hair. I am 26 years old. Thank you for your time
An important consideration for you to consider is that, as a 26 year old, you are only going to continue losing more and more hair in the crown region, which will therefore require more and more work to keep up with it. I do recommend Propecia, as it has a 70% chance of slowing down or stopping altogether the progression of hair loss in the crown, but this must be taken every day or every other day until a better medication becomes available.
I suggest you email some photos for me to evaluate.
