Can I Regrow My Hairline With A Hair Transplant?

As we know, hair loss and thinning hair are a normal part of the ageing process.But the commonest cause is androgenic alopecia. On the other hand women experience hair thinning more commonly than hairline recession. Those women who have female pattern baldness may have a receding hairline though it is less common.

Nowadays, people are losing their hair at a very early stage of their lives; even some teens face receding hairlines.

What causes a receding hairline?

An average person’s scalp has 1,00,000 hairs that grow from the hair follicles beneath the skin’s surface. Dozens of hairs fall out and regrow through follicles, and this cycle goes on. If the hair follicles start to damage, it disturbs the hair growth cycle, and it may reduce the density of hair eventually leading to thinning and baldness which starts by a detectable receding hairline. 

For males, genetics played a strong role.If your father or males on your mother’s side of the family were bald, you would probably at the same age or even earlier start to lose hairs since you have inherited the balding gene.

For females, the process of balding or hair thinning is more hormonal than anything else.hormonal changes like menopause can cause hair thinning and receding hairlines. 

How can it be diagnosed and treated?

You can consult with a hair transplant surgeon to know the exact cause for your receding hairline. It could be due to just age.Or it could be hereditary like in androgenic alopecia. 

Treatment for hair loss and receding hairlines is different for different causes. But when otherwise indicated hair transplant is the surest way to get back the receded hairline. 

Your treating specialist may not advise a hair transplant for your receding hairline. He may feel only medication will be helpful. These treatments are commonly used:

  • A steroid may be advised to suppress the overactive immune disorder.
  • Minoxidil may be helpful to slow and reverse hair loss.
  • Finasteride or Propecia is a pill that is a DHT blocker and prevents the progression of male pattern baldness. However it may have side effects. 
  • Watch:


Hair transplants are safe, effective and mostly durable in the right candidate. Moreover,when done by experienced surgeons, they look completely natural and can be hard to tell. Hair follicles or grafts are taken from the safe zone (permanent zone at the back and sides of the scalp and reloaded to bald areas of the scalp or face. The technique may sound simple but the skill and art needed is hard to get by.  

The accepted methods of hair transplantation are:

  • FUT(Follicular Unit Transportation): Surgeons remove a strip of the skin from the safe zone or even bodily areas like the beard, chest and abdomen and rarely the limbs and meticulously transplant it to bald areas. The process is best done using high magnification. It has been considered by some as the gold standard of hair transplantation.
  • FUE(Follicular Unit Extraction/Excision): With the help of a tiny punch tool, the surgeon removes the hair follicles from the donor area and relocates them to the hairline and other bald areas. Scarring is less discernible and there is no linear scar. This has become the most widely performed and accepted form of hair transplant today.

A receding hairline is often the first red flag sign of baldness.Losing one’s hairline at a young age is emotionally devastating and shakes one’s self image and confidence. However through hair transplantation in the right candidate, hairlines can be effectively restored through hair transplant. However hair transplantation does not retard futue progression of badness. Besides a hair transplant, long term DHT blockers may be needed.
