Today we bring you the case of a 30-year-old man who reports progressive hair loss from the age of 20 with evident recession of entries and intense loss of density at the central level until reaching the current pattern of androgenetic alopecia .

During the consultation interview with us and the pertinent background investigation, we found a very marked inheritance from the paternal line.

He has taken Finasteride and applied Minoxidil 2%. Currently she does not do any medical treatment, only neutral pH shampoos and anti-hair loss lotions on a specific basis.

Her main concern was the loss of hair in her frontal image and she would like to close and fill in the entrances and increase the density in the central antero-superior area.

Given the extension of the area to be covered, we propose a hair transplant in 2 sessions. In the 1st session we recommend closing the entrances slightly and increasing the central density as much as possible . In the 2nd intervention we talked about closing the entrances a little more and increasing the density obtained in the 1st session in the entire 1st line and central area.

We transplanted a total of 3,390 follicular units in 2 sessions separated by approximately 1 year according to the proposed strategy. We are talking about almost 7,000 transplanted hairs in total.

We recommend restarting Minoxidil but at a concentration of 5% (2ml x day) and also Finasteride 1mg (1 x day) as maintenance treatments. With hair transplantation we seek to improve your frontal image and with medication we will try to stop the gradual evolution of androgenetic alopecia that began more than 10 years ago, given your age and positive family history.
