I had an FUE transplant a few years ago and I’m not real happy with my hairline. My hairline is a cm or two lower than I’d like, it doesn’t match my temples and it’s a bit low for how thin my hair is. It would look more natural if it were a bit higher.
Has anyone dealt with this or have any suggestions? I’m shaving a bit off of it right now but it certainly looks a bit off as the hair shaft is just shaved. I saw a transplant specialist and they suggested that if I plucked those hairs it would scar. Did she mean that it would show the scars from the implanting of those hairs I plucked? Cause when I have tried plucking before it wasn’t very noticeable to me. Would plucking be a good option? Where do I find a laser if that’s the best option? Do I need a specific laser for scalp? Any other recommendations? Thanks for any advice.
I tried to search this in this subreddit but didn’t find anything with “pluck” or “hairline too low”. I saw a thread or two that looked similar but there were no comments. Through the search though I found out plucking may spur hair growth in the plucked area though?
Hairlines that are placed too low at a hair transplant are a real problem to fix. If you laser the hairs to move it up, there could be scarring seen at the point where each hair follicle was placed as the skin of the graft could be depigmented by the laser and result in a whitish dot. This is particularly a problem the darker your skin is, less of a problem if you skin is very white. The key it to be absolutely sure that you are your surgeon design the hairline so that it is never too low. To high is easy to fix as it can be brought down, but to low, there is little that can be done.
