25 Year old needs help with hair


Recommended Posts

So i've been thinning on my temples for about 6 years now.. it moves veeeery slowly but it's defiantly noticeable to others now. I do not want to be bald at all.. I think it is just disgusting and it really upsets me it's happening to me. My whole family has there hair on both sides.. grandparents 70+ with hair. Dad at 58 has full hair. my brother has perfect hair.. I just drew the short end of the stick.

 

I would like to do a HT surgery but from what I see in all the pictures they won't touch temples? I want a perfect hairline forever not the "M" look like most HT I see. I have a huge amount of donor hair on the back of my head and hopefully if I do a HT now it will give me 4-5 years tell its ready again and who knows by then they might cure it.

 

I'll post some pics of where my hair is at now.. if the experienced people could chime in on maybe what would be the best doctors to tackle temples, how many graphs i'll need.. and what price range i'll be in.

 

With product and styled I can pretty much hide it.. but as you can see when it's just dry with nothing it's very noticeable.

Your hair looks fine and you should not have anything done.

 

Young guys who want the 'perfect hairline' are often left disappointed and full of regret. you need to lose more hair to make a HT worthwhile.

 

Get a prescription for Propecia and that should help you keep your existing hair well into your 30s.

 

Now get on with more important things like changing that broken lightbulb...!

Haha, agreed.

 

Get on finasteride. You hairline looks pretty good and you need a few more years and a little more loss to do anything about it.

How do I get on finasteride? Normal doctor or do I have to find a hair surgeon to have him give me a prescription?

 

My hairline sucks to be honest.. i'm not 50. No girls want to date a 25 year old bald guy. I can't even go in a pool or out in the wind with out someone seeing my bald spots. I would like to fix it now.. then in a few years fix it again. I could try finasteride for 6 months though and see what that does

Actually a lot off women dig bald guys. If my head was even close to normal I would have rocked the shaved head, clean cut beard, and nice clothes look. Where are you located? It can't hurt to have an exam with a doc. Do plenty of research in the mean time.

Your head doesn't look super odd shaped, nor does your hairline look terrible! You have a strong forelock which is one of the best characteristics to have when either maintaining or enhancing your natural hairline. My hairline decided to thin unilaterally across the entire front when I was 26. You don't really have "bald spots" those are simply recessed temples. Mature temples are pretty standard and come with the territory of mature hairlines (20's+). This may be the extent of your hair loss, but I wouldn't tempt fate. Look into getting on Fin as Matt and Spank stated. Your normal GP can prescribe it to you, but since you're already considering surgery, any of the HT doctors you will be consulting with can do the same. Please do your research! Especially if you're freaking out over the current state of your hair. While transplants aren't ultramajor surgery, it is surgery nonetheless and not something you want to rush into.

 

Browse the forums and pay attention to the great HT vets that make up this place. Two have already spoken! (Hint: No I am not one said vets lol)

Set up an online consult with DR. Gabel. Then see if he can see you in person. You may have some things going on that these pics aren't showing. He's a great doc and won't steer you wrong. But still, continue researching on the site to understand hair loss better.

I have seen people with your level of loss get work done, and I always think they are insane because they have a perfect head of hair. I guess it's all relative. Like Spanker said go see Dr. Gabel, he's in Portland and will give you a good honest evaluation.
