How to determine frontal hairline in hair transplantation?
Doctor’s skills on cosmetics are clearly significant for determining the frontal line in hair transplantation. Nevertheless, frontal hairline is primarily determined by doctor and patient’s consultation prior to hair transplantation. On the other hand, a doctor, with code of ethics, would plan the frontal hairline by not only considering current conditions but also predicting the further situation of your hair.
Basically, conditions below are considered for determining frontal hairline.
1- Golden ratio
2- Age factor
It is totally natural to have receding hairline as we age. For this reason, it is essential to have frontal hairline plan that is suitable for patient’s age. Otherwise, we would face with an unnatural hair transplantation result.
In situation of hair loss level with Norwood 5 and over, the frontal line should be planned for a higher placement than the golden ratio. It should be remembered that donor site cannot cover the bald site entirely.
