Hello. I needed to know if you have any high resolution before and after photos for male patients who have had transplants at NHI to restore their juvenile hairline with a high density. I was trying to find some on the newhair.com site, but couldn’t. I know that this is not a common procedure in men as many guys do not commit to taking propecia early on in the balding process and come in when the hair is only restorable to the mature position, but I’m sure juvenile hairline restoration has been done as for certain modeling/acting careers the thick Juvenile hairline is the aesthetic-standard.
The mature position is unacceptable for some of us, especially with how the aesthetic standard is becoming more stringent in 2011 due to many popular icons who lack the balding genes. I am considering doing hair transplantation for my career at your practice and was recommended to have FUE by my doctor (if I really wanted it). I do not have advanced balding or miniaturization beyond the hairline.
In general, we do not restore juvenile hairlines or any hairline with high density, especially with one surgery for most patients… perhaps with the exception of young male actors or models that have careers dependent on a specific look. You probably will not see these patients at our website, because many are convinced that their hairline will put them at risk for recognition if shown online. We don’t force patients to sign a photo release, so we can only post what we have permission for.
We don’t recommend transplanting a low hairline in men, because you are setting yourself up for disappointment if you develop a more advanced balding pattern over time. More specifically, I do not know what your expectation of “high density” and your desire for a “juvenile” hairline is.
If you want to see examples of hairline density, just attend one of our open house events in Los Angeles and see some of our patients in person. A few of them who regularly attend do have high density, and meeting them to see for yourself in person is a great way to get an idea of what can be done. Our next open house event in Los Angeles is this Saturday the October 1st, and you can find our upcoming free open house events listed here.
