Hair loss from the frontal hairline typically happens due to age or genetic causes. The hairline is the border of our hair and it is the same area from where our hair starts to grow. It is the most visible part of a person's head. Furthermore, it also limits the areas where the hair can grow. Every person has a unique hairline that perfectly fits their head shape and hairstyle.
However, after a hair transplant, the hairline can quickly lose its perfection and natural design. Therefore, the hairline's borders must be defined correctly to give it an original and natural look during the transplant. A wrong and unnatural hairline is easily identifiable and looks just like the hair of a doll, which no one wants.
To create a hairline that not only looks natural but is also undetectable, surgeons usually mimic the original hairline and its shapes, including the temporal points, widow's peaks, tufts, lateral humps, and so on.
Two of the most common procedures used to do so are:
The surgeon makes the slit in the recipient area for graft implantation. The grafts are extracted from the donor area, such as the back of the scalp, chest, or beard. These grafts are then transplanted into the slits.
In this procedure, the surgeon takes every hair follicle one by one and directly implants them in the recipient area. Every hair follicle is planted in a particular direction, angle, and depth to give the transplant a very natural look.
