This patient from Beverly Hills, Los Angeles had been experiencing the erosion of his hairline since he was 28 years old. During his late forties, he decided it was finally time to take action through a hair transplant procedure. He chose a Dr.UGraft™ Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hairline restoration surgery to reverse the recession around his face. He wanted to achieve reliable growth and a more youthful framework around his face. Most importantly, he was interested in a natural looking outcome by opting for this solution for a receding hairline.
Dr. U Performs Hair Transplant For Receding Corners and Hairline – Before Photos of Beverly Hills, Los Angeles Patient :
Here are photos of the patient before restoring his hairline through a Dr.UGraft™ FUE surgery. Male pattern baldness had progressed to roughly the mid-point at the top of his head. Initially, when this issue had started during his late twenties, he was able to rely on hair styling tricks to hide the regression. However, as his hairline continued to dwindle, his temple points also receded. This caused the patient to feel poorly about the widening appearance of this forehead.

Although his hairline and temple recession had progressed significantly, this patient continued to have a sufficient amount of nape and head hair for his hair transplant procedure. Dr. Umar compiled a donor pool of 3000 grafts to achieve the patient’s goals.
Nape hair is much thinner and finer than regular head hair. This fine caliber quality makes nape hair ideal for recreating the soft outer edge of the hairline.
Nape hair follicles grow at much sharper angles compared to regular head hair. Safe extractions of these grafts are best performed with more specialized punches, as opposed to basic FUE devices.
Dr.UGraft™ rotary punches have a patented, gentle pulling feature. These devices have the ability to grip the tissue around the follicle and pull the graft upward while it is being scored.
Unlike a regular tubular FUE punch, with Dr UPunch i, it is not necessary to precisely align the device with the hair angle.
Dr.UGraft™ offers a very reliable technological system for safely harvesting desirable quantities of nape hair. Therefore it offers an ideal solution for a receding hairline.

Extractions consist of just one part of a hair restoration procedure. Yet, the insertion of the grafts is also a crucial phase. It is here that the surgeon recreates the natural looking patterns of hair growth. Dr. Umar carefully studies the existing patterns on the patient’s head to a create a seamless restored area. He creates carefully placed slits in the recipient area based on precise details like angle and direction.
Lastly, there are also aesthetic considerations. When designing hairlines and temples, Dr. Umar applies actual tendencies and patterns found in nature. Often times, one will find consistent hair framing contours (in terms of roundedness and pointedness) based on the shape of the patient’s face and features like their nose, chin, and cheekbones.

Frequently Asked Questions – Solution for Receding Hairline
Why will a receding hairline progress faster for some people than others?
Although hairline recession is fundamentally caused by genetics, there are also secondary factors that can affect the rate of hair loss. Examples include inflammation due to bacteria and microbes, side effects from prescription medication and even excessive sunlight exposure. Genetic coding can also dictate how fast the hair shedding process occurs. Some people are destined to reach severe, Norwood 7 baldness and are more likely to experience rapid hair loss. Others, like the patient featured here, may experience a much slower progression of male pattern baldness.
Is it best to wait to get a hairline transplant like the patient in the video? Or if you want a hair transplant for the frontal hairline much earlier, in your 20s, is this possible? Will the results last?
The right timing for a hair transplant procedure will largely depend on an individual’s personal preference. Although this patient chose to wait until his late forties to undergo surgery, this does not have to be the case for everyone.
Many clinics will follow certain age guidelines. However, the rate and progression of hair loss will differ from person to person. Therefore, age is not the only factor to consider.

Why do some clinics not offer a treatment for temple hair loss along with their hairline restoration?
Temple reconstruction area is one of the more challenging areas of the head to perform. It requires creating complex, subtle transitions in hair direction, angle, and orientation. It also requires the careful study of an individual patient’s facial characteristics to design temples that adequately complement the hairline.
These types of skills require a more intuitive understanding of natural hair growth patterns and how they can be applied to suit specific facial features. In other words, the successful reconstruction of the temples cannot be performed in a standardized, one-size-fits-all fashion. And many clinics do not have the ability to produce seamless, natural-looking results on patients.
