My doctor believes I will retain hair using the CR Labs programme. He is not a fan of finisteride because of the side affects.

Does topical fin work & does it cause sides?

Why would you need a transplant for the top? Just leave it as is and enjoy life. Your hair looks great. Reassess in your 30s.

I have not heard of anyone having sexual side effects from using topical finasteride and at the same time there really has not been many guys talking about it within these online communities.

The key is inhibiting DHT otherwise the progression of MPB will continue on.

I think your hair looks fine and would not do any more surgery for the time being.
