Comparing Pure Hair Transplant Results vs. Finasteride Boosted Outcomes

Comparing Pure Hair Transplant Results vs. Finasteride Boosted Outcomes

When it comes to hair restoration surgery, it’s easy to be captivated by the allure of dense, impeccably covered results. Many individuals base their choice of a hair transplant center on the apparent density and coverage showcased in before-and-after images. But is this the right approach? Is there more to these results than meets the eye? Let’s dive deeper into the nuances of comparing hair transplant outcomes.

Undoubtedly, everyone setting out on a hair transplant journey aspires to achieve remarkable coverage and density. However, what often remains hidden from view is the dual role played by medication and the actual transplant surgery in sculpting your desired results. Frequently, we encounter dazzling results boasting high density and full coverage, even in cases of Grade 7 baldness. These outcomes are further accentuated by showcasing pre-transplant images where the patient is clean-shaven, magnifying the apparent transformation. Regrettably, this presentation doesn’t allow you to appreciate the number of miniaturized hairs present in the transplant area before surgery. These miniaturized hairs can undergo substantial improvement under the influence of medication, specifically finasteride.


This crucial piece of information is often withheld from patients – the fact that finasteride, when administered at the correct dosage, holds the potential to promote the growth of softer hair, enhance the thickness of existing fine, miniaturized hair, and significantly contribute to overall density, coverage, and a softer appearance. These effects are not limited to the transplanted area alone but extend to the donor area and other regions without transplants.


We acknowledge that some surgeons who prescribe full doses of medication also achieve remarkable results. However, it’s imperative to understand that comparing outcomes from pure hair transplant surgery to those boosted by finasteride is not a fair assessment. In most cases, the results you see predominantly rely on the medication. Finasteride can account for up to 80% of these striking outcomes, leaving a mere 20% of the work to be credited to the surgical procedure.

When finasteride is administered alongside a transplant, it effectively manages density, coverage, and the aesthetics of the hairline on its own. For instance, in patients with Grade 5-6 hair loss, you might observe a substantial presence of miniaturized hair across the seemingly bald area. These miniaturized hairs respond positively to finasteride, allowing the surgeon to allocate fewer grafts in those regions. Consequently, these grafts can be redirected to refine the hairline. On the flip side, when a surgeon opts not to initiate finasteride treatment or prescribes it in microdoses, every aspect, including the softer look of the hairline, hairline density, and aesthetics, overall coverage, and density, falls squarely on the surgeon’s skills.

Moreover, surgeons who do not harness the assistance of medication for coverage will need to utilize a significant number of grafts, even in areas with miniaturized hair. Consequently, they may be cautious about lowering the hairline excessively. This is precisely why we advise patients to familiarize themselves with the medications administered during hair transplant procedures before comparing outcomes in terms of density, coverage, or hairline appearance.


People worldwide are awakening to this realization. They have the right to make informed choices about medication dosage and timing. Medication should be initiated based on the patient’s needs and preferences, not for the surgeon’s convenience or to justify unattainable graft numbers promised before surgery.
