high hairline

high hairline

Postby accountingwiz » Sun Aug 09, 2009 7:33 pm


I am 24 years old and have an extremely high hairline. I am not losing hair at the moment, but I dont know if I will so I dont want to do scalp reduction. However, should I do hair transplant? I am worried that if I do hair transplant now, i wont have enough donor hair should I start to bald later on.

Does this mean I am stuck with an unattractive high hairline and nothing I can do about it?

Thanks for your help.

I am thinking about a hair transplant myself, although I don't think I'm at that point yet. To answer your question, You should not lose your transplanted hair because the roots are not affected by testosterone. In other words once you get a hair transplant you should not get bold again...
The hair is usually removed as a small strip and you should have enough donor hair for the procedure to be done. Having said that, I have not done it yet:) so my experience is limited to what i have been reading. If other members have done the transplant, I would love to read their feedback.

I have had two hair transplants, One at 41 (1500FU) the other at 45 (1300FU). I had plenty of hair to do them, and they worked fine for me. If one is considering a hair transplant at 24, there is good reason to expect that they are going to continue to loose hair throughout their 30s and that although the transplanted hair will remain, they will loose so much hair that they will not have enough good hair to transplant to the balding areas (or they will not have the $40,000-$70,000 needed to do all those transplants). And... worst case scenario... they now can't even shave their head clean, because they have the scars from the hair transplant, and they end up having to wear a wig.
