Composing a Hair Line
As the Androgenic hair loss seen in men starts from the front, a new hair line must be composed. Since women’s type of hair loss isn’t usually in the receding manner, women don’t need to have a hair line composed. The center point and the starting points are very important. The patient may have only a few hair follicles in the front, above their forehead near the sides and this may be considered the beginning point of their hair line. These few hairs are not considered a hair line. The real hair line is evaluated by face measure and proportion.
The face is divided into 3 parts:
- The area from the bottom of the chin to the base of the nose.
- The area from the base of the nose to between the eyebrows.
- The area from between the eyebrows to front hair line or forehead.
The perfect proportioned face these 3 areas are equal, but however, may differ from person to person. When dealing with these kinds of patients an approximate hair line will be evaluated. Usually the hair line is 7-11 above the eyebrows. The transplantation hairline must be agreed upon mutually by both the doctor and the patient. The center forehead line (front line) curves up and continues towards the sides. The hairline intersects the line of the outer temples and above corner of the side of eyes.
