Hi I am a 20 yr old female wondering about a hairline transplant. A previous question on your site about evening out a widows peak was the most similar to my request. I have had a high hairline on the sides for several years and a recent year on medications has now thinned out the hair on either side near the temple. I have always hated my hairline which is ill suited to my face shape and want to at least fill in the hairline around my temples. I am assuming hair grafts would be the correct procedure and want to know more about them.
HAving watched documentation of several female hairline transplants I wonder : Is the donor area for the grafts always left with a long scar? (example had one across the back of her head) CAn this be done without any scarring or difference to the doner area? and (of course) what would be the cost for this procedure?
There are 2 techniques for hair transplantation — the strip method (with the linear scar) and FUE (where you are left with small punctuate scars in the donor area). There’s no surgical procedure without some level of scarring, though trying to minimize the scarring is the best we can do. Everyone scars differently, and closure techniques for the strip method have resulted in extremely thin linear scars, and the length of the scar depends on the amount of grafts required. Costs also depend on how many grafts are needed, with FUE fees being higher due to the more time-intensive nature of the procedure. You can learn more about FUE at the following pages:
