Could Taking Finasteride Or Minoxidil Make A Hair Transplant Possible If My Donor Area Is Thin?July 30th, 2010
Q: You said I was not a good candidate for a hair transplant because my donor area was too thin. Since finasteride and minoxidil can increase the thickness of the hair, could it make a hair transplant possible?
A: Unfortunately, the medication will not affect the donor area and, therefore, not make a person with low donor density a candidate for a hair transplant.
