Surgery can be an effective option for men with male pattern baldness, says Kobren. The procedure’s success is predicated on moving DHT resistant hair to areas on the scalp that previously grew DHT-sensitive hair. Because DHT sensitivity is rarely the problem for women, they almost never gain long-term benefit from the procedure.
Surgery or hair transplants: Surgical hair restoration approaches include various versions of hair transplantation (taking hair from the back and putting it near the front) or scalp reduction (cutting away bald areas and stitching the rest together). Transplant procedures have improved greatly in recent years. They can produce much more attractive and natural-looking results than older methods that sometimes leave a “checkerboard” or hair plug look. Many transplant patients now take Propecia to maintain or keep what they’ve transplanted. When considering a hair transplant, check the surgeon’s credentials and experience carefully. Micrografts are some of the newest techniques whereby surgeons transplant single one to two hair follicles. Hair transplants may be very expensive and time-consuming procedures ranging widely anywhere from $1,000-$20,000, depending on the number of hair grafts transplanted. Typically, 500 or more hairs may be transplanted in a session.

I’ve been taking Biotin since I can remember so I don’t particularly notice a lot of growth from it. But I do notice when I don’t take it, my hair feels weak and looks dull. I notice the biggest difference in my nails, which grow SO fast and get really tough when I’m regularly taking Biotin. Biotin enhances the proteins that make up your hair. That makes your hair really strong, which helps it grow.

I guess the effectiveness of these 2 medications are quite proportionate to age of the native! At 42, I guess, I am old ? Atleast according to Indian standards!!
