Female 30s | high forehead | FUE 2000+ grafts


Recommended Posts

Greetings! Just about to start my journey with FUE in the coming weeks for estimated 2000+ grafts.
 

As a female I’m surprised at the lack of information and posts out there. I’m scheduled for female hairline lowering due to genetically high forehead and hair thinning over the years. I’d love to gain more support and provide info for future candidates. I’m scheduled with a well-reputed North American hair transplant surgeon.

I hope everything goes well. I will try to as much as I anonymously can post here to provide feedback and updates. Please send good vibes! Very nervous.

If its a reputed surgeon from the US or Canada you have nothing to worry about in your case,no progressive alopecia or diffuse thining, I wish you good luck and keep us updated

good to hear you'd like to provide info for future candidates. If you're in Australia as your name suggests, I think they need it with their local options!

Sounds like you've done your due diligence and If your surgeon is one listed here you're off to a better start than most. Best wishes

There are a few females out here @x.moonprincess.xo is one recent case that comes to mind. Also another one, though it hasn’t been updated 

I suggest you reach out to both of these members. I hope in the future more women will come forward and share their reviews. Unfortunately, many suffer in silence. I look forward to following your journey 🙌🏼

Hi @aussiefemale. I also live in Australia. Firstly thank God you haven't been signed up by a surgeon from here. I don't mean to bad mouth Australian surgeons. It's just that I have been following and having consultations with them here for the past 37 years and the so called best ones will place double's in your frontal hairline and then try and tell you that it is what you see in natural hairlines. Anyway, that aside I look forward to hearing form your feed back and updates should you go ahead with surgery. Also I totally agree that more work needs to be done on educating the public on female hair loss. Thank you for posting on this forum as it will shine a light of hope for other sufferers of female hair loss. All the best!

Can you rock this haircut? It looks better than regular ones imho and you wouldnt need surgery

Untghfjghitled-620220308234929.jpg

@SimpleLifeHi hi! Ive had this exact hairstyle for 15+ years now. I love this style and bangs but would love to not carry a blow dryer and straightener everywhere I go ☹️ The moment wind gusts, moisture or water get hold of my hair, it completely ruins the look. It’s a lot of maintenance and not hot/humid climate friendly at all. Im also active and outdoorsy, so it would be nice to just roll in and out of the shower without planning the whole week around my hair schedule. It’s tough to explain but it would be nice to just wake up and not worry about how the bangs have settled overnight.

Id love to be confident and rock the whole high forehead look like notable celebs: Angelina Jolie, Ricci, Cara Delevigne, Tyra Banks, Irina Shayk but its just not me. Hair has thinned at the front and could look healthier and more feminine. It’s certainly not a “need” per se, but if surgery means more confidence and freedom to live life without these constraints, I’d love to give it a shot. Hopefully it’s a good decision 🙏🏽

You should check out Dr. Nadimi, she has a lot of forehead reduction cases, which is a great option for women with high foreheads. She also does many hair transplants. Patient selection is key, you may be better suited for hair transplantation, but it’s good to explore these different options.

I definitely understand how you feel, enslaved to hair products & the maintenance probably sucks energy out of you everyday. I also want to live life more "reckless" or "impulsive"  without having to think about anything hairloss related. Idk if these are the right words, but I'm sure you understand what I mean. Also being paranoid about wind & water is not a healthy way to live life

Still, if this look is a banger the last thing I would do is get a HT tbh. Despite all the points mentioned above.

Dont want to scare you but a HT that goes wrong (low graft survival rate, further thinning with a depleted donor etc) will completely ruin your life. Not tryin to judge, but sounds like youre looking at the positives only 

Imo you have to take 2 steps back and try to asses things in the most rational way possible (difficult since you really want to have a lower hairline), but majority of time a HT doesnt mean a life without constraints at all, at least not for guys.

Her work is amazing! The second one with the grafts looks fantastic. Hoping it turns out great for the patient!

RE: forehead reductions. I’ve looked into it and can confidently say it’s not for me. I consulted with a wellknown clinic (previously Dr Kabaker’s) and they suggested it for me - mind you during peak Covid and zoom only consults. So they likely didn’t know my scalp or genetics well. After reading many reviews from patients and folks on RealSelf it was too big a risk to take for someone with an already thinning hairline. Once you get the reduction aka stitching it can decrease blood flow and cause further hair loss which is really difficult to correct with an HT later on. A number of patients complained about this so I didn’t want to risk that at all.

Since we are talking doctors my finalists were: Diep, Konior, Rahal and Wasserbauer. After meeting with them two were scratch-offs right away. And the other two were tough to decide between.

You are right. No decision is easy and ive gone back and forth so much with this. This is also not a sudden decision. Ive thought about this at least for the last 10 years if not more. Even consulted back in the day and thought no not worth it. Just came to a point where I thought is my identity just my bangs now? Because it really has become that since it’s the only look ive carried for almost two decades. Tbh its livable and by the grace of God it’s not a severe medical condition - Im fully aware and grateful for that. Definitely risky opting for such an invasive procedure for cosmetic purposes, but only time will tell. Can only make calculated decisions and the rest is out of our hands 🙏
 

@SimpleLife appreciate the note on reminding me to see beyond surgery as the solution. Oftentimes it’s all in our head (or FOREhead in this case 😜)
