Hairline Reconstruction

Hair loss can be a challenging experience for both men and women, affecting their appearance and self-confidence. While it is a natural process, it can cause stress and anxiety for those experiencing it. Men, in particular, are well aware of the symptoms of pattern hair loss, which include balding at the crown, thinning at the temples, and receding hairline. Hairline reconstruction is a surgical procedure that can help improve the look of your frontal hairline and restore your confidence.

What is Hairline Reconstruction?

Hairline reconstruction is a surgical procedure that involves transplanting hair follicles from other areas of your scalp to the frontal hairline. The procedure is customized to suit the patient’s preferences, such as hairline height, scalp laxity, and other essential aspects that affect the overall appearance of the hairline.

Male Hairline Design:

A good-looking face is often considered to have proportional features, and this is true for both men and women. In men, a well-proportioned face is typically divided into three sections.

Establish the midline: The first step in creating a successful hairline design is to establish the midline of the forehead. This is the point where the hairline should be centered.

Proportions of the face: The distance between the tip of the nose and the bottom of the chin should be about the same as the distance between the hairline and the point between the eyebrows. This distance is typically 7-8cm in most men.

Adjust the front and corners: Sometimes, due to limitations in the patient’s donor hair, we may need to adjust the hairline in the front and corners. This is especially true in patients with fine hair or low hair density and those who are experiencing advanced hair loss.

Micro-irregularities: To make the hairline look natural, adding micro-irregularities is important. A natural hairline is never perfectly straight, so creating small irregularities can make a big difference in the final result.

Priorities and budgeting: Finally, when planning the placement of hair grafts for transplantation, it’s important to strategically prioritize and budget for hair density in different areas of the scalp. This can help achieve the most pleasing aesthetic result possible, even in patients with limited donor hair.

Female Hairline Design:

In comparison to a male hairline, female hairlines typically have lowered or flat corners. The overall proportion of the face should follow the rule of thirds for vertical proportions in the middle.

Horizontal proportions should be considered on the sides, with the corners of the hairline closed in a typical female hairline.

Some women may have lateral humps which lower the hairline on either side of the midline, which is considered feminine.

The most important aspect of a female hairline is the lack of hairline recession on the sides (corners) of the frontal hairline.

To create a natural-looking hairline, the hairline should be a smooth, gradual curve without sharp angles or dips.

Designing a female hairline aims to complement a woman’s features and enhance her femininity.

While designing the hairline, the surgeon should always follow these basic formulas and consider the relationship between the various facial landmarks to achieve the best aesthetic results.

Factors to Consider When Designing a Natural Hairline for Hair Transplant

Donor Capability: 

Although it’s not the only factor to consider, the patient’s donor capability or lost potential can influence hairline design.

Graft Selection: 

With Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), finer hairs from above the ears and in the nape of the neck can be cherry-picked to create a natural hairline. Using a microscope can ensure that only singles are used.

Bone Structure and Proportions: 

The whole bone structure, including the shape of the face, landmarks, eyes, ears, nose, and mouth angles, should be taken into account. As we move back from the hairline, the scalp zones should also be considered. The DaVinci rule or the Vitruvian Man is a good starting point, but variations in ethnicity and gender should be considered.

Face Shape Measurement: 

To determine the shape of the face, measurements need to be taken for the forehead, cheekbones, jawline, and length of the face. Use these measurements to determine the largest feature and shape of the face, then design a natural hairline that is proportionate to the individual’s unique features.


Creating a natural hairline is crucial for a successful hair transplant. Patients today expect an undetectable hairline with enough density after one session.

Experienced Surgeon: 

Choosing an experienced and skilled hair transplant surgeon is crucial to ensuring a natural-looking hairline. The surgeon should understand the anatomy, hair growth patterns, and aesthetic principles in designing a natural hairline.

Realistic Expectations: 

Patients should have realistic expectations regarding their hair transplant results. While a natural-looking hairline can be achieved, achieving the desired density and coverage may take several sessions.

Post-Op Care: 

Proper post-operative care is essential for the success of the hair transplant, including the hairline. Patients should follow the surgeon’s instructions for washing and caring for the transplanted hair and scalp to ensure proper healing and growth.
