Say you are 19 with male pattern baldness. How do you figure out who’s pattern he will be following?
For a 19 year old developing that hairline, it would be critical to get to see a doctor who is an expert in the field of hair restoration as you need to have a Personalized Master Plan developed for your future. I suspect that more hair loss is on the way, faster than you might think so get a good doctor who understands the concept that genetic balding is progressive and that you need a Master Plan, from point of diagnosis, to each year in your life as the progressive nature of hair loss may develop. At the beginning, I would get a HAIRCHECK test (https://baldingblog.com/haircheck-test-how-it-is-done-video/) which I would repeat yearly and adjust treatments appropriate to keep hair on your head. This may in the future lead to a hair transplant if and when the medical treatment but that is not in your immediate future. I educate my patients to put themselves into the shoes of a balding man and ask them to imagine themselves 10 or 20 years older to try to prevent what is shown here: https://baldingblog.com/need-master-plan-think-hair-transplants-photos/.
