Surgical Treatment of Receding Hairline

hairline restoration

Hair loss is quite common among both men and women and hairline is the area that is most prone to baldness. The very first sign of hair loss in more than 70% of patients is a receded hairline. As you shed hair from the frontal areas, the forehead starts becoming broader and broader, making a person look mature and older than his actual age. If you are also battling with a receding hairline, go for surgical treatment and restore a guaranteed fuller and thicker, youthful looking hairline.

Try a mix of fats from a hippopotamus, crocodile, tomcat, snake and ibex, add some hair of porcupine, boil it and apply to your bald scalp. You can also work with topical mixture of opium, horseradish, pigeon droppings, beetroot and spices. And yes! Here is another solution. Give a shot to a combination of ground-up mice, horse teeth and bear grease. Are you thinking it is just insane? Say thanks to medical which has invented modern baldness cures and you do not need to follow these old treatments to stop your hair loss or reverse it.

Today, we have modern treatments for hair loss issues that seem rational and work. Hair transplant is found to be the only permanent treatment for receding hairline because hair that you grow with a surgery stays with you for the rest of your life. There are certain medicines as well (Minoxidil and Finasteride) that help inhibit hair loss and initiate hair growth but they offer a temporary solution. As soon as you stop using these medicines, hair loss symptoms start coming back.

Apart from being temporary treatments, medicines offer a set of side effects that come inevitably with their use. Both the medicines have their own side effects that are as mild as an irritation in eyes and can be as serious as prostate cancer, male breast cancer and unwanted hair growth on other parts of the body. So, if you are seeking a safe and permanent treatment for receding hairline, hair transplant surgery may be worth considering.

Surgical Hair Restoration Techniques:

There are two methods that are most commonly used for surgical hair restoration, namely Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). These two methods differ in the way they extract donor hair follicles from the donor area. As far as the plantation of the extracted hair into the recipient site is concerned, there is no difference. Let us briefly describe the both procedures so that you can have a better understanding of this popular surgical treatment of receding hairline.

FUT Hair Transplant or Strip method

Follicular Unit Transplant, aka Strip removal, is considered traditional hair extraction method. Its name is quite self-explanatory. To obtain hair follicles for plantation, a strip of scalp is removed from the donor site. This strip contains all the hair follicles needed for transplantation. However, this strip is not planted as a strip. Instead, individual hair follicles are separated from the harvested strip by excising it under a powerful microscope. Once hair follicles of desired size have been obtained, they are planted into the areas of hairline that have started showing signs of baldness.

FUE Hair Transplant Method

FUE uses a different method to extract donor hair. Rather than cutting a linear strip of scalp, it uses a small punching tool to extract each follicle individually, without causing much trauma to the scalp tissues. The tool surrounds the hair follicle from all sides and extracts it without damaging it. Since it does not involve strip cutting, it is less invasive than the traditional FUT hair transplant. However, since each follicle is extracted individually, it is a time consuming procedure that requires a lot of time and effort of the surgeon.

One benefit that makes FUE hair transplant a standout hair transplant method is that it has enabled the surgeons to extract hair follicles from any part of the body. Many hair transplant seekers with limited donor hair on their heads are using this method to extract hair from different body parts like chest and legs, and plant them into the head.

It is the job of your surgeon to decide which hair transplant technique will be best for you. Based on the extent of hair loss, quality of donor hair and your scalp laxity, the surgeon will determine whether to use FUE, FUT or a combination of these techniques to help you restore a youthful hairline.
