I had a question concerning hair transplant. I am 20 and do not have an issue with balding yet, but I do have a larger forhead than I would like. Is there a way for me to be able to get my forhead to the 1/3 proportion of my face? I’ve always dreamed of not having a high forhead….i hate when people mention it…they say I have Dawson’s forhead from Dawson’s creek. I was planning on visiting your area. Is there a way you can help me while also making it look natural?
The rule of thirds (1/3rd chin to nose, 1/3rd nose to gully between the eyes and 1/3rd the gully between the eyes to the hairline) does not apply to very many people. Although Michaelangelo made David according to the rule of thirds, I rarely have seen any man have those proportions. I measure these elements in every patient coming through my office so I am more than a casual authority on this matter. The normal proportion is equal distance of chin to nose tip and gully between the eyes to hairline. This is generally the normal male mature hairline, which is higher than the child hairline in most people (by 2/3rds inch). With that said, high hairlines which do not show this proportion can be treated and the hairlines can be lowered. What always worried me is that in young men like you who may have genetic balding (a 50% risk in most men), such a surgery may accelerate the genetic hair loss.
As you suggested, visit me at my office and let’s bond. Best way to deal with this problem is to command it and anticipate the future on a worst case scenario.
