My (innocent) comment was made on the basis, that nobody had attempted to answer the question, but instead answered one that wasn't asked.
Are you 19 years old? if you are I would strongly advise putting off having a HT until your late 20's early 30's as you may end up having multiple HT's to chase your hairloss over the next few years.
Starting propecia would / should be your first plan of action, take various photos of your hair from different angles and then re-evaluate your hairloss at least the 12 months mark, if you see no change or an improvement then you will hopefully be maintaining your hair and at this point would it be worthwhile considering having a HT.
Both Lucky and PB who are very experienced when it comes to HT's have given you SOLID advice!!!
I would not contemplate a HT until you have been on meds for over a year
Seriously though I started losing my hair at 19 so I know what its like, read my info guide below. You've got to think about the rest of your life. Given the chance I too may have opted for a HT at 19 but I'm glad that I did'nt.
I was around 25 when I realised that my temples were on their way out. I suddenly got that sick feeling in my stomach realising that things were not actually going to get better - I was going bald. I became convinced that I would be bald at 30. The usual things went through my mind- shave it off etc- but to be honest I look a total c*nt with a shaven head.
If someone had offered my surgery at 25 I probably would have done it- I am glad I didn't have surgery at that age because 13 years later, at 38 I still have hair, albeit receded a bit more (nw 3). At 25 I would have wanted a teenage hairline but now nearing 40 I would accept a more conservative hairline.
This probably won't make you feel any better mate, but as you get older priorites do change and hair becomes slightly less of a priority; but this doesn't detract from the fact that we do get judged on appearance and hair does matter to most people. I reckon if you asked 100 balding men whether they would prefer hair- 99 would probably say they would like more hair. The thing to ask is whether surgery is a step too far, bearing in mind that at 19 you are going to set yourself up for years of surgery.
Get on propecia for 12 months and see how you feel then.
get on propecia for at least 2 yrs then think about travelling to US to get a proper ht
Everyone attempted to answer the question
I am very surprised you have no pictures though
The cynics out there, might have (mis)interpreted this as a hidden agenda...
The only agenda here maneman is one of making sure people don't make mistakes and are Given accurtate information
