Male Hair Transplant Repair Success Story – 02/01/2021

A new entry has just been added to Modena’s male hair loss success stories!

Diagnosis: FUE transplant – Age: 33 – Sex: Male – Grafts: 1766

In the following presentation, Dr. Amir Yazdan documents the beautiful cosmetic results of a 33-year-old male undergoing an FUE hair transplantation to reinforce his hairline and add more density.

With the procedure we sought to create a soft natural hairline that richly covered the receding peaks on the temple.


How To Stop a Receding Hairline

One day, you’re simply minding your own business when you take a quick glance in the mirror.

However, that quick glance turns into a second glance which turns into an entire internal monologue berating the passage of time and the genes you were not so blessed to have inherited. The days of full, thick hair are behind you and have been replaced with something sparse and patchy. Although you have used your older brother’s and father’s heads as a crystal ball for your hair loss future, it never hit you until now that this is now your reality.

Receding hairlines can be difficult to accept and deal with. Whether time has just flown by too quickly or you’re genetically predisposed to male pattern hair loss, it’s normal to pine for the luscious locks of your youth. Unfortunately, hair loss is one of the starkest changes that comes with age. Yet, despite that over 66% of American men over the age of 35 deal with this problem, the taboo nature of this topic makes many men still hesitant to discuss their struggles.

However, the medical community has tirelessly fought to develop effective methods to both restore and improve the appearance of male pattern baldness. With the assistance of medical technology developments and cutting-edge techniques, there is now no longer a need to keep struggling with hair loss. Both short-term and long-term options are available depending on your needs and desired results.

Scalp Micropigmentation
Take the more unorthodox route with scalp micropigmentation. This short-term procedure is ideal for those with thinning hair. Mimic the appearance of more voluminous locks by tattooing the scalp and hairline with tiny hair-like strokes. These hair-like strokes are created to mimic the natural color and density of your hair. Although scalp micropigmentation produces immediately visible results, it takes about three to four sessions for the best outcome. Your “hair tattoo” may last for about 3-5 years.

Hair Transplant Surgery
If you’re looking for a more permanent solution to your hair loss, consider taking the surgical route at Modena Hair Institute. Hair transplant surgery is the most permanent and effective treatment to restore both your hair and your confidence. This procedure works by extracting hair follicles–either individually or in strips–from a donor area of the scalp where hair is still growing, such as the back and sides. Then, the harvested hair follicles are transplanted to the areas of your scalp affected by hair loss. Although this procedure can take upwards of 6 hours to complete, the slow and steady process is worth the wait. Permanent hair growth begins only 2-3 months post-surgery while significant growth will be visible around the 6-month mark. Most men will regain their full heads of hair around 9-12 months. However, for the best results, surgery must be accompanied by hair loss preventing drugs like minoxidil and finasteride.

Can a Hair Transplant Get You Ahead in the Workplace? Just Ask These Celebrities Who’ve Come Out on Top After Hair Restoration Procedures

Don’t let these male celebrities fool you – they haven’t always had their flowing locks! Celebs are constantly being put under a microscope to look their best, so it comes as no surprise that these male stars are opting for some surgical assistance when it comes to losing their locks. Today, we live in a day and age were the better we look, the better we FEEL, and the better we feel can lead to endless possibilities in life! Whether it’s getting that job promotion, getting (or keeping) the woman of your dreams, or just being able to look in the mirror with confidence and say, “I look good today.” Whatever the motivation may be, a hair restoration procedure can significantly improve your overall quality of life.
Hair Restoration is becoming more accepted than ever, even outside the celebrity scene, and men no longer need to be ashamed of undergoing hair transplant surgery. In fact, the hair transplant industry has increased over 40% in the last 8 years. Can you blame these men for wanting to maintain a youthful appearance? We certainly don’t think so!
When people ask us if a hair transplant is truly effective, we say – just ask Jeremy Piven and how a hair transplant boosted his acting career and even charting him in 2005 as The World’s Sexiest Man! In truth, a picture (or movie for the purpose of this article) speaks a thousand words so we compiled some of our favorite male celebrities whose career have sky rocketed after opting for a hair restoration procedure.
Though these photographs of celebs and their hairlines speak for itself, we’ll still discuss a few..
Matthew McConaughey – one man known for his gorgeous appearance and thick lustrous hair. It wasn’t always like that! He had his hair in his youth but by time 1999 rolled around, we started seeing the signs of his receding hairline. Look at him now! As far as career – what has this hunk accomplished since undergoing a hair restoration?

Jeremy Piven – His earlier roles in the 90’s is firm evidence of his male-pattern baldness that started taking place with signs of a severely receding hairline and exhibiting obvious thinning density. It’s even quite possible he used other hair remedies in combination to a hair transplant, such as a Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) that compliment an FUE or FUT/Strip procedure by “filling-in” any gaps that are left behind by an inadequate supply of healthy donor hairs.

These handsome celebrity men have had a ‘secret’ weapon in their back pocket – turning their worst hair into their best hair! While we can’t confirm that any of these men had a hair restoration procedure performed, we just have to assume that their path to balding was aided by science and a top hair restoration surgeon alike Dr. Yazdan because most human beings don’t lose hair and miraculously get it back. There’s no magic pill here – just a minimally invasive FUE or FUT/strip Hair Transplant can do the trick for most. (Read more on what a hair transplant can do for you here)

Case Study – FUE Receding Hairline Restoration Transplant

Patient presented with severe receded hairline hair loss, at just age 25. He began noticing the hairline receding at age 16 and noted his father and both grandfathers also have a receded hairline. The severity of his receding aged him and took a toll on his self confidence.

The patient’s hair goals were to restore the hairline with minimal scarring. Upon consultation and comprehensive evaluation, Dr. Yazdan and the patient decided on the FUE method of hair transplantation. FUE transplants produce minimal scarring and supply a sufficient amount of grafts for a hairline restoration procedure.

Hairline restoration cases like these can take anywhere from 500-2500 grafts depending on the severity of the hair loss and the goals of the patient. Dr. Yazdan worked with the patient to design a hairline that look natural, age-appropriate, and mimicked his hairline prior to the hair loss. Pictures show the patient immediately after the FUE hair transplant procedure. Approximately 1800 grafts were used for this procedure.

Forehead reduction surgery vs. hair transplant surgery

We all have something that negatively effects our self-esteem and causes us to feel self-conscious. For some, hair loss, scars, a large nose, or a large forehead may be the source of blame.
Cosmetic surgery has sought to resolve some of these sources of self-consciousness. Hair transplants can eliminate baldness, lasers can lighten scars, rhinoplasty can fix your nose, and forehead reduction surgery can make your forehead smaller.
Unfortunately, some of these procedures are not without their complications. We are often asked what the best course of treatment is for a large forehead or a set back hairline. The answer is best determined by not only determining the cause of the enlarged forehead, but also weighing the pros and cons of the treatment options.
More often than not, when people are referring to the size of their forehead, they also mention their hairline. They often say that their forehead has gotten larger over the years, and that their hairline used to be more forward. This is not a case of a naturally large forehead, rather it’s a case of receding hairline hair loss. If you have a receding hairline, and are looking to restore your forehead and hairline to more natural and youthful proportions, you should be looking at hair transplant surgery over forehead reduction surgery.
If you have had a naturally large forehead or naturally set back hairline your entire life, you can still look into hair transplant surgery as a solution. Just because your genetics have programmed your hairline to start farther back, does not mean it must remain that way forever. Hair transplants can be a great tool in allowing people to achieve a more youthful hairline, even if they never had one to begin with.
If you are not a candidate for hair transplant in either scenario, and find yourself looking into forehead reduction surgery as an alternative option, we urge caution. Forehead reduction surgeries are often plagued with complications such as visible scarring and nerve damage which cannot be reversed. As with any cosmetic procedure, make sure to ask your provider lots of questions and request before and after photos to evaluate realistic results.
