Hairline Reconstruction

Hairline Reconstruction

More often than not, we fail to realize the earliest sign of ageing and hair loss i.e. the hairline. We talk about wrinkles, fine lines, and dull skin but it is the receding and out of shape hairline that actually makes you look aged before time. The hairline frames our face adds a definition from the temples to the face at the top.

Men and women with receding hairline attempt to do many things such as combing their hair forward, or getting them cut in bangs (women) or simply try to use makeup to get cover the receding hairline. But these solutions usually don’t work and anybody can make out that you are attempting to disguise the balding and you end up feeling embarrassed about the balding areas. Hairline reconstruction treatment in India can help you get the ideal hairline to suit your age and face type. A healthy frontal hairline is the single most important feature that can make your face look ageless.  The hairline speaks a lot about our attractiveness and vitality.

Hairline reconstruction is a facial art and requires a deep knowledge of the artistic and cosmetic impact of the facial frontal zone. A thoughtfully planned and done hairline reconstruction surgery can immediately enhance your appearance and make it more aesthetically appropriate. The actual hairline is counted as one of the benchmarks for measuring the success of hair transplantation surgery. 

Hairline reconstruction surgery in India is not just about filling in the receding hairline it is also about getting the ‘frame ‘right. Every person’s hairline is different and plays an important role in how they look and how they feel about themselves and our expert hair transplant surgeons at The Esthetic Clinics understand this impact very well and work with the patient’s accordingly.

Types of Hairlines

It is quite natural for hairlines to get higher  with age  or ‘mature’ and therefore the process of hairline reconstruction in India aims to restore the natural hairline  Each person’s hairline is different just like the fingerprints but they can be classified into the following board categories:

  • High hairline: People with high hairline look like they have a higher than normal forehead. The forehead is clearly visible. Broad foreheads can be genetic too. High hairlines can also result because of patterned hair loss. People with low or middle hairlines can end up with high hairline because of hair loss. Your high hairline can be due to recession because of the following reasons:

Thinning of hair at temples

Uneven hairline

Itchy and irritated scalp

Localized balding

  • Low hairlines: This type of hairline is very common when we are young but some people have genetically low hairlines and their hairline appears close to the eyebrows and the forehead appears very small.
  • Middle Hairline: This type of hairline is considered the most common and preferred type of hairline for men and women. It is easy to create different types of hairstyles with this type of hairline. The forehead does not look too broad or too small.
  • Widow’s peak: This type of hairline appears in ‘V’ or ‘M’ shaped and it leads to a heart shaped face. Hair recession usually takes places on the sides of the pointed portion of the V.
  • Straight hairlines: This is the dream hairline of men and women. This type of hairline sits straight and it is easy to comb and style the hair.
  • Uneven hairline: This type of hairline does not have any definition. It can be one sided or in a zigzag random pattern. Uneven hairline can be because of genetics or female pattern hair loss.
  • Cowlick: This is a common hairline type, which makes hairstyling a challenge for even the best of hairdressers. Small portions of hair growth in different directions and you can see baby hair in different directions of forehead.
  • Rounded hairline: This is considered to be the most beautiful of hairlines as it does not show the effects of loss of hair volume.

The Receding Hairline

The receding hairline can include any of the above hairlines.  Hair loss in males usually happens in the late twenties and there is visible reduction in hairlines across the temples and on the sides of forehead. In addition, the genetic reasons, a receding hairline can also be because of

  • Thyroid disease
  • Protein, nutrient and vitamin deficiencies
  • Anaemia
  • Chemotherapy
  • Female pattern hair loss
  • Alopecia

Changes in hairline happen slowly overtime and more often than not you are not able to put a finger on it, it just seems like something is not right on the face. Receding hairline can make your face look elongated; the cheekbone angle too pronounced and even make the nose look more prominent than it should.

Planning the Hairline

The most important part of hair restoration is planning the hairline.  The hairline reconstruction surgery in India is done in such a way that it suits the best for the patient. Hairline reconstruction needs to be done in such a way that the hairline is neither too low nor too high.  Top hair restoration surgeons take into consideration the following major points during consultation

  • The age of the patient: A rounded hairline does not suit a man in his 40s and a young man suffering from premature baldness will not benefit from high hairline.
  • The expectations of the patient: Most men want to get a low hairline because they believe that it gives them a more rugged appearance but it does not work that way. The surgeon and the patient need to work together when planning the hairline.
  • General health: Patient’s health i.e. a patient with sound health and no chronic conditions is an ideal candidate for hairline restoration.
  • The cause of hair fall: Hairline reconstruction experts investigate the cause of the hair fall before suggesting a treatment. If you suffer from a chronic condition that causes hair fall and then hairline restoration might not work for you.
  • Donor hair limits: When designing the hairline the surgeon will also take into account the availability of the number of donor hair on the scalp. Hairline reconstruction must be done in such a way that the final aesthetic appearance looks as natural as intended.

Advantages of hairline planning:

Planning the hairline before the hair restoration treatments ensures that you get the most natural possible looking results.  Proper hairline planning for hairline reconstruction surgery in India will save you from embarrassing moments later and save you the cost and trouble of getting a secondary transplant. Only the experienced doctors at The Esthetic Clinics will give you the best results that you wanted.  There are three zones for hairline reconstruction

  • The transition zone
  • Defined zone
  • Frontal tuft

How is the height of the hairline determined?

The age and facial proportions play an important role in determining the height of the hairline. The adult hairline is higher than the adolescent hairline and the surgeon will need to take exact measures of the face and determine the right angle of implantation before designing the hairline. It is therefore necessary that you only consult the best and most experienced hair transplantation surgeon in India for the purpose. The hairline can

  • Be placed about 7-8 cms or about 3 inches above the eyebrows
  • Be designed to be about four fingers above the eyebrows
  • Be placed two fingers above the highest eyebrow wrinkles.

Hairline Reconstruction Techniques

To create a new hairline the hair transplant surgeon in India will use an artistic approach and mimic the natural hairline shape. In order to extract the hair follicles and implant them on the donor site the hair transplant surgeon uses the following Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplantation procedure.

In FUE, slits are made on the recipient area and the follicular grafts are extracted from the back of the scalp. The units are then transplanted in the hairline by keeping the angulation and density of the hair in mind. FUE is a scarless method and does not cause much pain during the procedure.  FUE is an outpatient procedure and does not require you to stay in the hospital for the night.
