Hairline looks terrific, but imo this is a perfect example of why temple work should be a last resort for someone with serious recession issues to the point hairline work wouldn't be natural without it. There is a giant difference between the texture of the transplanted temple hair and the natural temples that imo someone off the streets could pick out. It also draws attention to the different texture of the transplanted hairline, which usually isn't an issue because it is naturally different than the temple hair.

If the temples are going to be transplanted, the entire area should be rebuilt such as not to leave such a wide contrast immediately visible such as in this case. The bottom of the temple as in the design markings has been left natural and the upper area transplanted which makes this an issue.

Hi Jay,

Just out of curiosity, is there anything specific you'd recommend for someone with bad temple recession?

My hair is pretty much okay everywhere else, but the temples continue to recede.

Are you saying that the entire frontal region should be done to promote a more uniform composition?

Thanks mate

When you say temples do you specifically mean the side peaks at the sides or also the corners? The problem I'm referring to is visible above, with each 3 sections distinguishable. Its very clear this person has had a hair transplant because of the jarring change at the side temple peak due to the drastic change in texture and colour of the hair. Imo a patient should go to a surgeon that has experience implanting and rebuilding the entire temple point, or should leave them alone entirely. In this case only half of the temple point on the vertical has been rebuilt with low density implanted into existing areas and its created a mess of a transition as you can see.

If your temple peaks are completely gone and recessed into themselves, then find a surgeon who isn't just going to place a few hundred hairs at the front of the peaks or towards the corner, but replace them entirely. Rahal, Hasson, and Erodgan do this often and there is a great lupanzula case here showing what I mean. If they aren't all that bad you're better off avoiding altogether due to potential issues with naturalness and focusing on the frontal hairline as it is the best useage of grafts to begin with.

I think the difference in texture will be less as time goes by though and the new hairs mature. Also keeping a longer style helps in that regard, as we can see in Gatsus thread.
