Regarding the hair -- what makes it more difficult to analyze is that I have always had a widows peak (even when I was a young kid) with that sharp point that you mentioned is visible when I part my hair. I'll take some newer photos within the next day or so and post them here.I wasn't able to respond the past few days because of an inexplicably erratic sleep pattern.
You wouldn't have a sharp point that deep in a true NW1, even if it's only visible when you part your hair. I know this because your hairline resembles my brother's almost exactly. It looks like a NW1 because of how dense and long it is, but when he pulls it back, the recession is obvious. He even told me himself that his hairline has receded a lot and that it used to be straight across along the forehead. Your hairline is similar to Ashton Kutcher's in this video .
The guy is norwooding by his own admission. I'm not trying to unsettle you, and I really want to be mistaken about your hair for my own sake and peace of mind knowing that this is my future hairline, but it's always safer and wiser to assume the worst case scenario, especially if it's NOT far-fetched or overly pessimistic at all.
About the agepill, I do think that it can be artificially slowed down, even if you don't have the genetic predisposition to age well. What I've been trying to get at is that it's extremely difficult to look more than 3 years younger than you actually are, especially if you have fair skin. The last observation seems to hold true whether you're 100% white Caucasian, or have negroid admixture ( Arab, Berber ). I definitely see it in my country. The lighter the pigmentation, the worse the ageing process tends to get. Syrians and white Gulfies age the worst in the middle east, and blacks the best. However, even for the latter, you rarely see someone looking 35 at 40 or even 38. Facelifts are unheard of here, particularly among men, so I can't really say anything about their effectiveness. When I say effective, I mean shaving off a good 4 or 5 years off your face. If you don't look 31 or 32 at 35 or 36, what's the point really? You'd need to know how common it is to look that much younger ( there is a huge difference between 31 and 35 for the average guy. They're almost worlds apart ) to justify dumping several thousand $s into a facelift and/or an anti-ageing regimen. Not only will you sink further in debt - in your particular case - you will also get sick of sticking to the regimen and the need to avoid certain diet pitfalls in order to get and maintain potential results. It's only worth the hassle if you have a pretty good chance at looking your current age 4 years from now. However, since this is your last chance to salvage what's left of your youth, I'd say go for it, considering that you don't have much to lose. Of course, I'm assuming that you're confident you can pay all the money you owe back. How deep are you in debt if you don't mind me asking? And what about your earning potential once you're done with your studies? If it's too personal, I understand if you decline to answer.
It's going to be interesting to see where you end up with all of this. The eye area overhaul is going to define an era for the redpill and the internet manosphere if it's successful and gets enough exposure. If you end up with a looksmatched mid 20s gf who is moderately attracted to you, let alone ascend to serial fucktoy status, you will have succeeded, considering you come from a background of total or near total inceldom.
On the topic of facelifts, I was just reading over your post, and it sounds like you might be under the impression that I'm just now thinking about undergoing a facelift. Just to clarify, I actually had a type of "partial" facelift done back when I had my midface/chin implant surgery done in March. The type of facelift is called a midface lift, which is about what it sounds like -- the surgeon just lifts the midface tissues as opposed to doing a full facelift. My surgeon's midface lift technique involves stitching the inside of the midface tissues to the implants themselves, which supposedly prevents the midface tissue descent that otherwise starts to occur during most peoples' 30s.
So in other words, I have actually already undergone one type of facelift that should hopefully buy me some time, at least in the sense of preventing soft tissue descent. Not only that, but my eye area overhaul surgeon said that he will basically perform the same type of midface lift when he does my eye area surgery, so at the very least, I should be somewhat insulated against experiencing midface tissue descent, at least for a few years (otherwise, what's the point of performing the procedure in the first place?).
Regarding the debt question you asked, I would rather not post the specific number publicly, but I'll say that it's probably on the above average end of what is considered "normal" for a graduate student in the US to leave school with. However, here in the US, there are repayment options that allow students to pay back their loans via various income-based plans, so I'm not that worried about it (or at least, I'm not worried enough about it to abandon my surgical pursuits).
Answering your question about earning potential once I'm done with school is a little more complicated, because there's a chance I might have to spend an additional 1-2 more years in school after I graduate in May from the program I'm currently enrolled in. This is because the field I made the mistake of choosing to get a degree in is in a state of severe job market saturation (I.e., way more applicants than jobs), so I might have no choice but to go back to school (again, for no more than a year or two) to train for a different career. If I'm able to get a job in my current profession after I graduate in May, my income potential will be decent (but nothing exceptional) -- anywhere from $90k - $120k to start, most likely. Even if I have to do another 1-2-year degree program, I'll still be coming out of school qualifying for jobs that offer a similar starting income.
The above scenario with me possibly having to undertake more school is why I said in a previous post that it might be another 1-2 years before I can financially afford to do my eye area overhaul surgery, which is why I've been entertaining the notion that it might simply be over for me. If I really am genetically predisposed to aging very poorly, then I might simply look too old to be physically attractive to girls by the time I have gotten my eye area overhaul surgery. In that case, the only reason to move forward with having the surgery will be to satisfy my own desire to look better. At that point, I'm not sure how I will cope with the dual realities of knowing that I wasted both my youth as an incel as well as my last few years of opportunity to make the changes that could've otherwise rescued me from that lifestyle, even if just on a temporary basis.
Of course, I guess the wildcard factor is to what extent the combined effects of the midface lift (to prevent soft tissue descent) and my use of collagen-boosting products (Retin-A, GHK-Cu, red light therapy, astaxanthin, etc.) influence the aging process for me, if at all. I'm not particularly optimistic here, but I'd like to think that they'll have SOME effect. Obviously, other posters on the forum think I'm wasting my time and money on them.
