Hello, im an 18 year old male and was unlucky enough to be born with not a great hairline to begin with. Now however i notice that my hairline has become a lot worse on one side than the other. Is this natural? And also what would you recommend for treatment? i am already on regaine at the moment which seems to have help a bit and stopped hairloss for now. But would you consider a hair transplant?
it wouldn’t take many hairs being transplanted to have a huge effect on my self-esteem, how many do you reckon?
Please help, it can be really depressing at times, thanks!
You need an evaluation and a Master Plan. At this point, you really don’t know what type of hair loss pattern you have or if you will bald further than the frontal corners. If were to have surgery without a Master Plan with everything under consideration, you could end up with two patchy corner areas of hair and a bald head some years down the line.
You might just be developing a mature hairline or it could be early genetic loss. There’s no way for me to know what you’re seeing or what your treatment options are without an examination. At 18 years old with some hairline corner recession, I wouldn’t anticipate surgery being the recommended path at this time.
Address your depression and self-esteem by educating yourself and seeing a doctor for an examination and a Master Plan of your options.
