A common concern for many men is a receding hairline. Most men experience some hair loss especially as they age and there is no cure to stop it completely. However, there are treatments to restore hair to the hairline. Surgical hair restoration has developed to the point of producing very natural results. If you are seeking an improvement in a receding hairline, New York hairline lowering procedures may be just the help you are looking for.

The most common cause of men’s hair loss is androgenetic alopecia, commonly referred to as common or male pattern baldness. A receding hairline can be the beginning of male pattern baldness that typically begins with a receding hairline, then thinning on the crown of the head. Generally, the hairline moves backward or recedes progressively. Along with the thinning, miniaturization can occur in which the hairs grow in shorter and finer due to their response to androgens. Diagnosis of this pattern can be made by a doctor who uses a densitometer. This is a hand-held instrument that can magnify a small area of the scalp.

Follicular unit hair grafting is a hair transplant procedure that is an option for men with a hairline that is thinning. It will also benefit those who want to lower their hairline or who prefer to reduce their forehead by approximately 1 cm.

A surgical hair transplant procedure can be a good option for hairline lowering, producing quality, aesthetically-pleasing results. Modern hair transplants employ the techniques of Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FET) in which hair is extracted in tiny follicular units of 1 to 4 hairs, and then implanted into the scalp.

The United States is the country that has the highest number of hair restoration procedures performed and some of these are performed in New York, where there are doctors who specialize in hair transplants and hair restoration.
