I recently had a hair transplant done and I was curious about the way my doctor had done it. I naturally have had a widow’s peak but it has receded some. The way the doctor put the graphs in was sort of also in a M shaped form just out to the sides. Will this restore my natural hairline?
I cannot answer your question without seeing a current photo and comparing it to what you looked like before you lost your hair. More importantly, you should have addressed this before the surgery to make sure that your doctor understood your goals and expectations.
The standard practice at NHI is for the physician to draw a hairline with an erasable marker prior to surgery and have the patient look at the general shape and position so that he/she can approve or modify what the doctor planned. Generally this take a few minutes as the patient has specific concerns and requests (such as adding a widow’s peak). In the end, both patient and doctor are on the same page in agreement before the surgery starts and we take good pictures to document what we had agreed to. After the hairs grow in, we can then go back to the drawing on the head and see if the hairline we had tried to produce, was actually produced.
