I am a 22 year old male who has started receding. I have a lot of unwanted ‘neck hair’ that grows on the back of my neck below the hair line. Could it be used in a hair transplant as ‘filler’? The hair doesn’t grow and long or think as normal hair though.
I often get this question asked to me during office consultations. Unfortunately, neck hair is not considered permanent, as the hair on the back of your scalp is. Neck hair is different. Many men lose neck hair as they age. Thus, while you can have a neck hair transplantation, you risk losing it as you get older. Then there is the issue of the punctate scars left behind, whihc would look like white dots (from the FUE) on a shaved neck. It would not be a wise investment on your part.
