im 22 and had 500 grafts done in my receding temples about 6 months ago. i experienced severe MPB at 18-19 and hairloss had been stable since then. the hairline was carefully marked by myself before the surgery so i cannot blame the doc, but now i feel it could have been 1/2 further up. the hair are very fine and not very dense, just as i wanted them on temples(not too dense, just enough to cover). in the future can these be moved 1.2 up??
Not really. It is very difficult to move transplanted hair. I tell patients that transplanted hair is always permanent and that is why it should be done right the first time. If removal was to be attempted, it would have to be done with a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique. You can have a brow lift which will give you a higher hairline, moving the transplanted hair upwards, but that is fairly radical surgery for someone of your age.
I am disturbed that some doctor would transplant a 22 year old and that the hairline would be placed low. The fact that there were only 500 grafts also disturbs me, because it indicates that the balding is not severe. Were you on Propecia? If not, then there is clear malpractice here. You need an expert to assess your situation.
A hair transplant is for life. That is why I constantly emphasize the Master Plan in hair restoration. To achieve the maximum cosmetic benefit from hair restoration surgery, a personalized Master Plan should combine the best information available with a realistic assessment of what your future hair loss may be. It is an integral part of the patient-doctor relationship.
