PM me if too personal. I usually just lay it all out there :-)
I'm 53, and I've figured out, my hair takes care of itself....
It turns grey, then falls out!
problem solved

Wife has told me no way on the shaved head thing...”you would look like a serial killer”
I think I agree her considering how light skinned I am. Most you other fellas look like you can at least tan the dome, so I’d probably go shaven like yourselves if I could.

Going to at least try some sort of pill with rogaine combo. And I agree with you doc, surgery is probably where I draw the line.

All kidding aside. I had all the reasons not to too. I thought I too would look like a serial killer and I have had stitches multiple times. I also have a huge divot on top my dome. Best thing I ever did was not listen to the wife and just shave it off. She loves it now and I save a ton on product! Skin to win baby!

I still have a full head of hair. Unfortunately, my son started going bald in his late 20's. He tried rogaine. Didn't help much. He had a hair transplant. It worked well. He's mid 30's now and it still looks good.

I’m in my 40’s so I wonder what the cutoff is for good results? How much that cost? I can’t imagine it was real cheap :-)
