I’m a 20 year-old male with what I consider to be a high hairline (7cms from brow ridge to hairline). I know it falls between the male average of 6-8cms, but I have rather effeminate features that cause it to look disproportionate.
I recently talked to a highly regarded hair transplant specialist in my area to inquire about lowering my hairline with a hair transplant. He told me that my hairline was fine, and if I did go through with a transplant it would look fake and I would be very unhappy with it. Is this true? Or is it just because of the risk of further balding later in life?
Decisions like this are made between the doctor and the patient. As for whether any surgery would look fake, I suppose that depends on the skill of the surgeon. But if your doctor is recommending you not have a procedure, I’d defer to him. If you want a second opinion, I am unable to give you one over the internet.
I am generally averse to doing any hair transplant or hairline lowering process on someone who might be balding in their future. At 20 years old, it probably wouldn’t be in your best interest.
