I wish I had just done this and jumped on finasteride when I still had good density on top. Guys, don't wait for something better. Get a freaking hair transplant today if it will fix you.
It's often the case that people realise after their density loss, the importance of prevention. Hair transplants on their own are never the cure even on those with great hair characteristics who are already diffuse or high Norwood, it's just not enough as a solo treatment. The patient in the OP was a great candidate from every angle so benefited the most.
