Receding Hairline

Even men who don’t ever go bald experience changes to their hairline as they mature. Children and teenagers have low hairlines that may go straight across or even have a rounded appearance where the front meets the sides. As part of the transition from boy to man, the hairline usually recedes to a mature position and shape by the time a man is 28 to 32 years old. A non-balding man over the age of 28 to 32 usually has a distinct angle at each side where the frontal hair meets the hair on the sides. We call these angles the normal fronto-temporal recessions.

A transplanted hairline does not recede. When we transplant hair, we aim to create a mature slightly receded hairline that will look good now and in the future. A teenager’s hairline on a mature face with grey hair and wrinkles looks unnatural.

When someone has a hairline that seems to be starting to recede, it is wise to wait until the hairline has clearly receded past the normal level of a mature hairline before contemplating hair transplantation. If the recession continues we would be only too happy to transplant hair to improve the hairline now and for the future.
