During puberty, a male’s hairline will begin to decrease. By their mid to late 20s, some men will experience mild to excessive baldness. In both cases, only a surgical option could correct this discrepancy between the genders.
Indeed, hair follicle transplantation is an option. Costly yet effective in small patches, it may not provide a complete solution to create the appearance of a full head of hair. With some patients, it is possible to lower the hairline by advancing the hair bearing area toward the forehead. Depending on scalp mobility, a 1 to 2 centimetre hairline lowering could be achieved per procedure.
Scalp and hairline lowering is best discussed during the FFS consultation when Dr. Bensimon could perform a more accurate assessment of the area. This surgery could be combined with frontal bossing plasty or brow lift.
