I'm 28 and looking to fill in the corners and bring my hairline a little forward.

I have a consultation scheduled with Dr Feller in May, and am forwarding these photos on to various other doctors for their opinions about my hair loss and my goals.

Easiest way to do this was to create an album, so please check it out and respond with any comments!

Thank you

wouldn't it be wise to just wait a couple years to see what Aderans, Histogen and Replicel will be able to offer?

Are you serious? You do realize that the reason I am here is because I also suffer with hair loss... Right?

This is my opinion - I am not a Doctor just been around a long enough time to offer an informed opinion based on many patients i have met from various clinics over the years.

Thanks Spex. It's given me food for thought!

I will keep the forum updated so no worries there.

Yes, but I feel you don't really understand male hair loss if I'm honest. You seem to downplay it unless it's beyond Norwood 2, which limits you in my opinion.

You assumed I don't suffer from any issues with the hair I have, so I clarified. I feel like you don't really "get" MPB when it's in its early stages.

Um... I wasn't assuming anything. I just wanted to say you look fine to me as you are. I was being nice to you. Interpreting my post as a negative comment was a choice you made.

I understand my limitations better than you realize. I understand hereditary hair loss a lot better than you realize.

Hi Tracy, I appreciate that but I was simply explaining my feelings/emotions in regard to hair loss.

Thanks for your the nice comment. I wasn't being ungrateful

Dr. Feller will definitely ensure you have enough hair in the bank in case the tide goes out fully in the future. If you go ahead with it keep us updated. All the best.
