Hair Transplant only effective treatment for Frontotemporal Hair Loss
It is proven that Hair Transplant is the only effective treatment for Frontotemporal hair regrowth.
Therefore a hair transplant is suitable for any patient with male pattern hair loss, no matter how young.
To prevent further future hair loss of your NON-TRANSPLANTED hair, oral Propecia and topical Minoxidil is prescribed for daily use .
Hair Transplant at Age 20
You have a family history of Norwood Class 5 balding and are currently young. Thank you for sharing the family history. You most likely will lose much more hair. In young patients that are programmed for more hair loss; remember if surgery is performed hair line needs to be designed to account for future loss as well maintaining adequate donor supply of hair for future needs. Pursue medical therapy first and surgical therapy possibly in a few years. Best wishes.
