06 Mar Facial Framing
Hair loss around the face affects 90 % of males and females during the aging process. While the most common request among patients is to “restore their frontal hairline”, when attention is directed to hair loss on the lateral hairlines (sides) patients say, “ I never really thought about that”. Curiously, many hair restorations specialists also ignore hair loss in the temples. While it is a more difficult restoration it is the most effective way to restore a more natural youthful look.The patient in the photo above had significant hair loss around her face. In addition to restoring the frontal hairline both lateral hairlines were also restored. When restoring lateral hairlines all three layers must be restored in a step down, layering fashion to achieve a natural look. This requires experience, understanding of aesthetic design and very skilled assistants to meticulously place individual follicular units. Facial Framing cases, such as this one, are very successful and result in the “ ten year younger look”! At Greco Hair Surgery we prefer to do the more challenging specialty cases like this one as well as eyebrow transplantation and facial scar revision transplantation.
