So in that sense use Gho. Or maybe Cole. Or wait until Histogen / Aderans annouce something positive and wait. Don't play your cards now - its too early and will cost you a lot of money.
I'm not on finasteride because of side effects. There's no way I'd ever go back to it.
As for Gho, I mentioned before I haven't seen anything
impressive in terms of hairline, which is my number 1 priority
. I really don't care if he can save 1000 grafts if I have seen no evidence
that he is in the league of Dr Rahal and Dr Feller in terms of producing good hairlines. I seriously couldn't be any less interested. I haven't spent 6 months researching the best doctors, just to abandon all of that because of a new technique by a doctor that can't prove he can give me the result I'm looking for.

But because your DHT is very low, you will most likely slowly go to your genetic make up which could nw7. Nobody knows.
My maternal uncle and grandad (I think the maternal aspect is important) both just had NW3. I'm currently at NW2ish, and I'm heading to 30.
One important consideration I have is the slow rate of my balding. If I can buy almost 3000 grafts FUT now into the frontal area, I reckon it could get me 10 years or more.
If my scar is bad, I have options to treat that... but I'm going with one of the best doctors so hopefully it won't be.
If my balding increases, I can just go somewhere local and get FUE into any sparse areas. Also we're clearly quite optimistic about forthcoming treatments, so that encourages me as well.
Those are my thoughts.
