Not receding but very very high hairline.

I am 19 years old and throughout my life have been teased for having a very high natural hairline. I am looking into options of wether or not I can get it lowered. It would be such a relief not to have to go through day to day basis with this annoyance, and looking at other people with normal hairlines in a jealous rage. I know things could be much worse, like actually loosing hair or having some disability, but I am just wondering if there is anything I can do about this? My family has no history (strangely) of hairloss, just high foreheads. Any comments help, thanks.

Keith,

 

Personally, I don't see any signs of androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness) or any indication that your hairline is abnormally high.

 

If you were losing hair, you could, at your age, consider Rogaine or Propecia, but I really don't see any indications for this type of therapy. What's more, males usually lower hairlines via hair transplantation and not a hairline lowering procedure, but I think you're a bit too young for this as well.

 

If you wanted to, you could consult with a VERY trusted hair transplant surgeon (as a doctor who hasn't been reviewed and proven could push you into a surgery you'd regret ten years down the road) and discuss your options, but my guess is that they would recommend monitoring your scalp for any signs of hair loss, stabilizing your hair until your mid-late twenties, and then undergoing a hair transplant procedure to lower the existing hairline.

 

Here is a list of the physicians I would recommend seeing: http://www.hairtransplantnetwork.com/Consult-a-Physician/hair-transplant-surgeons.asp

 

Again, be very, very wary of any physician who suggests surgery at this point in time.

 

Feel free to send me a private message to discuss this further (if you'd like).
