I am concerned about transplants in the front of my existing hairline. Will they be noticable if I lower my hairline 2/3rds of an inch?
Here are some 3 month follow-up photos of a patient with dark hair. He had received about 700 grafts in front of an existing hairline. Since it is only a few months after the transplant, only some of the hair is growing and I expect much more to grow out in the subsequent months.
What is important to note is that the patient styles his hair forward so there is no way to tell that these little hairs are growing. Even if he did not do that, it was not clearly evident that these transplants are even there. The point is, it is easy to ‘hide’ transplants even in the front of the existing hairline, because these hairs grow from nothing (bald forehead) to something (fine hairs) very slowly. Most men are very sensitive to having their hair transplants seen by anyone, so I thought that these pictures would show a ‘worst case’ where the hair is growing directly from the forehead (its future home).
