My hairline is starting to look like my son’s hairline as the frontal part in the mid-line has gone up about 1/2 inch and my corners have disappeared creating a V shape to my hairline. I am 52 years old.
Women’s hairlines often rise up to an inch as the woman get older. Menopause accentuated the hair loss process and it is reported than about 50% of women past menopause, lose their hair and are balding to some degree. This could be seen as thinning, a risking hairline, disappearance of the corner hairline, overall thinning in the front, top and crown of the head.
I am assuming that this lady has seen these changes recently. She is of menopausal age. The normal female hairline is located on the crease of the furrowed brow; however, as the hairline in women rise with age, it may rise as much as a full inch from the crease of the furrowed brow in the mid-line. Additionally, the corners of the frontal hairline often becomes thinner with age taking on the shape of the male’s mature hairline as this lady is reporting.
In women who have plastic surgery of the face, hairlines and frontal corners are often impacted with hair loss. Brow lifts induce frontal loss and lift the frontal hairline back, increasing the size of the forehead. Is is very common to see frontal corner hair loss after facelifts and brow lifts. We commonly get referrals from plastic surgeons for women who complain about the hairline changes with their facelifts.
Hair transplants can address hairline issues reasonably well and lower the frontal hairline back to the crease of the furrowed brow. The corners can also be filled in with hair transplants.
