    Hello

    I was told by 3 doctors (1 hair transplant surgeon and 2 dermatologists--1 an alopecia expert) I had a good donor area and that I had no signs of miniaturizing in my donor area.
    The past year I have been more focused on stopping my shedding (i had low iron) and trying to regrow some of what I lost (i also have Androgenci hair loos)
    My hormone levels are all normal but I think I am just sensitive to DHT.

    My hair loss is mostly in front center part and slightly defuse on crown and sides--but not bad on sides...the back apparently according to these doctors and a magnified image i saw my back of head is dense and healthy...My hair back there the caliber of the strands is not as thick as they were but I am 45 and no miniaturization.

    SO anyone like me who had a hair transplant?
    If defuse and had a hair transplant its a different story.
    I am just trying to find someone like me.
    Im 46 period is normal and regular...

    I am currently using topical Spironolactone and minoxidil foam..some success.
    Also I was ferritin anemic and i treat my Iron.

    I am also going to try topical finasteride and PRP treatments soon.

    I had a hair transplant years ago. If I could chose to do it again, I wouldn't have wasted my money. It helped for a brief time, but my hair kept thinning and I was back to wearing one form of a wig or another. Now you can see some of the scar tissue where they took the sample from. I think it would be money better spent to invest in a hair system or a hair integration piece, or a good wig.

    I had 2 different types of transplants which helped for a few years. It cannot replace all the hair you have lost on your crown.
    I now use Topik to fill in the top of my scalp, I cannot live without it. It is devastating to lose our precious hair.
    Good luck

    Just to update on this old thread of mine.

    I am on topical finasteride and topical Spironolactone and 5% minoxidil..and I am having very good success.
    Its not perfect but I have good decent regrowth and my hair loss is (for now at least) stopped.
    So that combination of no more loss and some regrowth has stabilized my loss and improved the appearance.
    Its not my 25 year old hair BUT its what I am sure most women would be happy with.

    I am skeptical of the above poster who is pushing for a hair transplant in Delhi...buyer beware.
    Good luck ladies.

    mcat, I forget but would you recommend oral spironolactone over topical? I’m on the pill so taking it orally wouldn’t be a huge deal but worried about side effects.

    How is topical Spironolactone and finasteride? Are they just liquid formulas you put on your scalp? Before or after Rogaine?

    I have frontal forehead loss and temple areas, also some loss on top, thick still in back. Two transplant doctors said I am good candidate due to good donor area; I had scalp biopsy to rule out FFA, but it is female pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia). Especially the front hairline area is distressing to me and difficult to camouflage. I am very natural and hate idea of wearing a wig. I also want to ensure that the loss is stabilised first prior to possibly getting a transplant. One doctor recommended minoxil and PRP, another doctor said PRP would not work on post-menopausal women?? I inquired about spironolactone and a doctor said it would not help frontal loss. I don't want to use minoxil, is that rogaine, ?, because I tried that once many years ago and it had a terrible effect, growing hair in unwanted areas, and any regrowth were just very thin hairs, I actually think it made it worse. I also wonder about saw palmetto? I am also trying stinging nettle root as I read it blocks DHT, plus other vitamins like the B-complex, L-Lysine, etc.

    It is trusted that ladies experience massive mental impacts from male pattern baldness than men. They endeavor to shroud their male pattern baldness, attempt to build up a hairdo that could camouflage their male pattern baldness and invest hours before the mirror just to take a gander at the force of the male pattern baldness. Tragically, our general public likewise thinks about ladies with slender hair or uncovered scalp as appalling. Most ladies experience the ill effects of male pattern baldness peacefully and are probably going to encounter a low certainty. Despite the fact that male pattern baldness happens in the two guys and females, the causes and example of male pattern baldness shift.

    Are You a Candidate For Female Hair Transplant

    More often than not, ladies have diffuse diminishing of hair on the scalp and along these lines, they are not viewed as the great hopefuls of Female hair transplant in Dubai. In any case, there are likewise a few ladies who experience the ill effects of example male pattern baldness which can be treated with the hair transplant.

    Hopefuls experiencing Traction Alopecia.

    Hopefuls that have male pattern baldness which is brought about by injury, for example, damage scars, synthetic scars, consume scars.

    Hopefuls that have particular example hairlessness, for example, crown diminishing or subsiding hairline.

    Applicants that have recently experienced a restorative medical procedure and need hair around the entry points.

    Hello MCAT, I am going for another appt with Dr Donovan, has anyone seen him in Vancouver? Since he doesn't do transplants I am hoping for a more neutral opinion. I am certain my loss is due to hormonal (I am post menopausal but I am not on HRT so I am certain my levels are off), and thyroid issues, hashimotos etc. I am trying to control the loss, if I stay with my hair the way it is now I will endure, it is still thick in the back and lower sides, my loss is primarily that front center of my forehead like a chunk missing, and volume on top. Although 2 transplant docs said I am a good candidate, I am so weary of shock loss etc and if anything worse happened I would probably be suicidal.......
