    You have a shit ton of grafts. What is your Norwood level? Age?

    Thank god! I am 23, I would guess im Norwood 3. I have diffuse thinning also, but most on top of head and not so much on crown area. I can add more photos when Im back from work.

    At your age, the worry is thinning around any transplants as you get older. This is why it is often recommended to be on finasteride and minoxidil before and after.

    Minoxidil I can do, but finasteride I have allready tried twice and got sides I couldnt go on with.. So what more is there to do? How many grafts u think I need to cover up tempels and some of the diffusion on top?

    Go FUT if you're not on finasteride. Also be prepared for multiple future procedures. Maybe 2000 in the hairline, none in the midscalp or crown yet.

    Maximises chance of graft survival and use of donor area. If you're not on finasteride and diffusing like that you're going to be slick bald and for guys in their early 20s it usually happens within 5 years for the most part.

    You'll definitely have to get multiple procedures if you go down this route.

    But this might also be my only option I guess, if not something else comes out. How often would I need new hair transplant, you think? 3 years? 5 years? And I would need shit ton of grafts for this, if u think guys in my situation goes bald within 5 years..

    You should have the money for a second within 2 years.

    Honestly mate most doctors are going to reject you. Without finasteride and at your age you're a potential disaster in the making for them.

    Unless money isn't an issue here you really should try to at least microdose finasteride at say 0.25mg.

    Money isnt a problem, I tried before taking 0.25. Even 0.25 eod, even that I couldnt handle. Maybe I can try again later, since i could be in a better shape in my head, also non alcohol. Dont know if it would matter tho. Soo.. In other words, Im kinda fucked?

    It's mostly bro science talking but maybe try hitting the gym a bit and doing regular weights training before you start finasteride again.

    You are largely fucked in the long term without finasteride. Maybe you could try nizoral 2% shampoo as well as minoxidil and RU58841 in the crown and midscalp, then go for the transplant just in the front too.
