Is this a reasonable hairline design?


Recommended Posts

In red

 

I have a 5-finger forehead. I plan to keep my current hair. If I do, when I turn 25 (I'm 23), will I be able to ask for this hairline design? Hairline designs are supposed to be zig-zag from what I've seen, when going for a hair transplant, that is.

 

So if I show to a HT surgeon, will he give it to me, more than  likely?

 

If so, how many grafts would be needed approximately? Would 2k suffice for dense packing?

First of all your hair looks fine. You shouldn't do anything. With that said, even if you insist on lowering the hairline, your design is bad. corners must be above the temple points and not be going down into them. trust me that it will NOT look natural at all if you do it your way.

That hairline is far too low. You have to remember you will be living with this for the rest of your life. You need a hairline that you can grow into, not out of. I have the scars to prove it.

If you were going to do something it should be similar to the position of black line I'm showing here. However I don't think you should do anything. I'm showing this because I know some guys insist on getting work done and think they need to improve things that don't need improving, so if that's you I want to make sure you don't screw up your life too bad.

What's the point if that hairline is barely lower than my current hairline, no offense? My biggest issue is the temporal points btw, so the temple peaks on both sides. I only want to lower my hairline just a tiny tiny bit, the main objective is to straighten out / sharpen out my temporal points. 

 

Please take a look at this

I understand that  but what if I'm a very good responder to finasteride/dutasteride and only want my hair/-line to be excellent till age 35? Let's assume that

I would agree with therapy, especially if you have almost zero hair loss and belong to several hair loss forums.

I do sadly, and also I was born with a naturally big forehead. As I have said before, women always comment on my big forehead/receeding hairline.

Young, between 18-25 years of age. Yeah ofc they're not but remember, women are the choosers when it comes to sex and relationships. If I don't look good enough to her, I won't be able to bang her hahaha.

Lol :D

Don't be a slave. If you think woman chooses you, this will happen. Flip it around. You can choose as much as women does, in fact, I'm sure many girls wants to sleep with you right now, but you "blocked" them because they're not good enough for you. More confidence in yourself mate! :)

From the glabella (the point between the eyebrows) the hairline 'ideally' should be 7cm's high. This obviously varies and in older men should be slightly higher. This is if you want a 'natural' looking hairline and not something from Planet of the Apes!

i watched 30 second of that guy and turned him off. why would anyone want to be like him

anyway looks like hes a strong NW1. your current hair doesnt look too far off from that, so i think youre focusing too much on the little things and failing to see the bigger picture. Your face shape might come into play with how your hair looks as well, but as i dont see any real issues i would strongly urge you to avoid surgery and wait until there is a serious problem - this industry just isnt worth the risks. I wish you luck

There is no regulation or standards in this industry - this is an industry built on reputation - meaning that after you sign a consent form with your chosen clinic youre essentially giving them the right to do whatever they want. Scarring, bad hairlines (such as the one you are proposing), donor depletion, poor growth ... these are all things you as a patient have to accept as possibilities. And if any of these happen to you have to be prepared to undergo even more surgery to repair it often at your own expense. There are NO guarantees. And this happens more than you think.

Ask some of the guys who commented on your thread about their experiences. @Melvin-Moderator first operation for example. @Gatsbygot a HT at a young age, has posted his story online and is now in his 50s still considering repairs. @BeHappy is an extreme repair patient and probably knows more about this industry than any of us. And with their wealth of experience they are all respectfully trying to tell you "no".

Most bad cases are handled privately (some clinics might offer a refund). Patients sign NDA's. The majority of bad cases you see are the ones from people that have the courage to post online. A lot of people with bad results are too ashamed to talk about it publicly. What you as a customer/patient see are mostly the good results. If you spend any time on the other forums you likely wont even see bad results because they get censored. Or to put it another way if getting a HT was so damn simple why would so many guys waste their time on hairloss forums?

The fact that you care so much about your minimal loss raises the stakes as well - what if you get a bad result? How will you handle it? Will you be satisfied with a merely good result (HT's are merely an illusion of density and thus are never "perfect")? Are you prepared for future surgeries? Do you have the finances? Do you understand your donor supply and have made a long term plan so that it will last you your entire life (If the average donor is 6k, and you want to lower your hairline to where you initially asked, that means youre willing to use a 1/3rd of your donor up before youre 25 with absolutely no consideration of future balding). You are 23, its highly likely youll still care about your looks at 43 and 63 ...getting a HT is a marathon, not a sprint. You need to be prepared for the long haul.

Ive discussed the doom and gloom, but thats what guys talk about when they tell you that you need to do your research because THERE ARE amazingly talented and ethical doctors out there who genuinely care about their patients. There are artists of the industry that exist. It's finding them though (and more specifically finding the right one for you) that proves difficult. Coming here is a good start.

The hair loss you are focused on (which isnt really regarded as hairloss but rather "maturing") is minimal. Im not even sure whether most doctors would consider you a good candidate at this stage, that is if you are even balding. So when i say this industry isnt worth the risks Im saying I dont think the 5mm worth of hairline you are focused on is worth it. There are better ways to spend your time

EDIT: and if girls are genuinely drawing attention to your "big" forehead, just tell them its proportionate to your other body parts, namely your big brain

OP, I’m gonna put this bluntly. If you get surgery with that hairline, you’re likely just gonna get rekt. Granted, I can’t see your full face to see how your hairline sits with everything facial wise but your hairline looks fine and your temple points strong. If girls are making comments that frequently, it might be the choice of hairstyle that’s accentuating you’re forehead. Just a thought

I’m gonna move this to the off topic section, some of the posts have gotten reported. I can understand, we really want to keep this a professional hair site, and not about attracting women. Personally, I don’t have a problem with the discussion, but I agree it should not be in the Q&A section.
