A receding hairline is a big deal for many men, and they often try various options to have it corrected. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is one method that is often used for hair restoration. One of the questions surgeons often get asked about hair transplant surgery is ‘How does the FUE method work to restore a receding hairline.’
A receding hairline is generally considered an early sign of balding, and is marked by the thinning of the hair at the front of the head, particularly on the sides near the forehead. It is often due to a hereditary condition.
FUE Hair Transplantation
FUE is a minimally invasive hair transplant method that produces natural looking results. With FUE, hair is extracted from the donor area in naturally occurring units of about 4 hair follicles. The grafts are then transplanted to the balding or thinning spots in a pattern that matches the direction and angle of the original hair.
How does the FUE method work to restore a receding hairline?
The meticulous placement of the hair follicles with the FUE method makes it an effective option for restoring your hairline. However, patients should have sufficient hair in the donor area to perform the procedure, but FUE is normally not recommended for younger patients.
If you are considering hair transplant surgery its best to have an evaluation done by a hair transplant surgeon, to determine if you are a good candidate.
