Men suffering from hair loss have been told for over a decade that Propecia or finasteride is the only FDA approved tablet or pill that inhibits the production of DHT, the hormone responsible for genetic hair loss (androgenetic alopecia).

But despite its increasing popularity amongst young men, is follicular unit extraction hair transplant surgery all that it's hyped to be?
