Is Hair Transplant Without Finasteride Possible?
Some people wonder whether It is possible hair transplant without finasteride medications or not. It’s due to the fact that finasteride does generate side effects including sexual dysfunction. However, fiansteride is used to settle down the progressive male pattern baldness. It’s a complicated questions since we need to consider some factors to conclude the answer.
The short answer would yes but here are the things to consider of hair transplant without finasteride and other possible condition might occurs.
Progressive Male Pattern Baldness
Some patients experience continuous baldness due to hair transplant without finasteride after the procedure. It brings them their pre-hair-transplant look back. However, it also shows that they might take the procedure when their hair loss is still porgressive and not settled down. Such conditions aren’t ideal for taking the hair transplant at the first place.
Different Side effects
Even though each person experiences different side effects of finasteride, there are actually uncomfortable side effects. Some patients experience insomnia, increased hear rate, sexual problems, and even continuous progressive male pattern baldness. Some people choose to stop using finasteride due to such side effects. However, some people reacts differently toward finasteride. For example, some patients feel minor side effects and even gain a more balanced life including sleeping better and normalized DHT level.
The fact is that many surgeon won’t perform hair transplant without finasteride for their patients. In such case, you’ll have to find another surgeon who don’t obligate finasteride for your post-procedure. Above all, it’s better to conclude it after you’ve triangulated suggesstions from several doctors.
There are alternatives to hair transplant without finasteride including the use of Minoxidil, laser comb, or even Platelet Rich Plasma(PRP) therapy. Some doctors would suggest Minoxidil solution or shampoo instead of finasteride and many patients are happy with that. The idea is to keep blocking DHT hormones which cause progressive male pattern baldness.
When To Take Hair Transplant?
You can definitely take hair transplant without finasteride when your hair loss is completely settled down. It means, you shouldn’t take the procedure in your 20s or 30s. The existing hair in your back or side of your head is resistant to DHT hormones and won’t go bald for the rest of your life. The same follicles are moved to the balding area and grow new hair there with the same nature without a need of any finasterides.
