Hairline transplant for receding hairline with Dr Mark Tam

Looking in the mirror every day and watching your hairline recede can be a traumatic experience and constant worry for many men. If this is you, we can help.

A receding hairline is characterised by hair thinning and hair loss, or hair growth stop along the hairline. The hairline moves from the front of the scalp in a backwards or receding pattern from the temples and forehead. It is a common form of hair loss for men and is a consequence of male pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia), a hormonal condition that is usually hereditary.

Many men are noticing hair loss between the ages of 20 and 40, with some even in their late teens. It typically starts with an early receding hairline. The rate of the hair thinning or areas where hair stops growing will vary by individual and the rapidity or speed of the hair loss can increase over time, especially without intervention.

The realisation of your hair loss, especially at a peak time in your life for things like career advancement, starting relationships, and finding your social status can significantly affect confidence, self-esteem, and psycho-social interactions. It simply becomes all you ever think about. Dr Tam wants to help to change your hair, and your life.

Men often seek help with hairline restoration and look towards hair transplant surgery for a receding hairline after several years of trying medicated shampoos and prescription anti-hair loss medications which offer hair loss stability and management, but not a solution to restore the hairline.

Why choose Dr Mark Tam for your hair transplant?

  • Natural looking results - A natural restoration of the hairline and temple points is achieved using the IDEAL technique. It produces a superior, long-lasting hairline transplant result using world-class techniques like partial follicular unit extraction (FUE) and individually separated hair follicles.
  • Accurate mapping and measuring – There are no guestimates here! With Treatment Area Mapping and Measurements (TAM+M), Dr Tam can precisely calculate the exact amount of hair follicles and the graft number required to achieve your goal of hairline restoration.
  • High density – Employing pioneering techniques which require more time and smaller, hand-cut instruments increases transplanted hair density but with less trauma to both donor and recipient areas than conventional methods.
  • More grafts - As a perfectionist, Dr Tam’s attention to detail and skill, and that of his hand-picked team, ensures superior processes are used to harvest and implant more grafts for a softer, ultra-high-density result, all whilst preserving donor areas.
  • Minimal signs of intervention – Dr Tam protects the donor area for both future use and to give you the freedom to choose your hairstyle - including a short back and sides - without the worry of visible scarring. The use of smaller follicle extraction punches and technically challenging methods causes less damage to the donor area and signs of a hair transplant are minimised.

Specialist in hairline restoration

Dr Mark Tam specialises in hairline restoration to restore the natural hairline and temple points. He brings artistry, unique and bespoke approaches to achieve high-end, quality results for every patient.

Hairline transplant is a more challenging specialty within hair restoration surgery; but Dr Tam loves it with a passion. It is difficult to achieve a first-rate result to a high standard, but he excels at just that. Using the IDEAL technique for natural restoration of the hairline and temple points, he places higher numbers of grafts than are typically used to give a better result. This produces a superior, long-lasting hair transplant result that can be adapted for each patient using world-class techniques like individually separated hair follicles and partial follicular unit extraction (FUE) to achieve the best outcome for you and your hairline. His attention to detail, unparalleled concentration, and honed skills determines his ability to create a soft, natural-looking hairline with optimal density whilst preserving donor areas.

Dr Tam uses personalised, hand-cut, smaller instruments for greater precision at high magnification, ensuring thicker, denser hair that appears less see-through at the hairline. This approach is exceedingly time-consuming but achieves superior, appreciably more natural-looking results, making it, without a doubt, worth it.

When it comes to designing a new hairline, there is no guesswork or estimation. Precise calculations and measuring using Treatment Area Mapping and Measurements (TAM+M) yield the surface area for treatment, allowing for mathematical calculation of the exact number of grafts required to achieve the optimum density for your preferred result, tailored to both the density of the donor areas and the transplant site. Therefore, Dr Tam can assure the meticulous design of your new hairline.

The impact of scarring in the donor site is often overlooked or viewed as an inevitable part of surgery; but, by using more technically challenging methods, Dr Tam can significantly reduce scarring. Smaller follicle extraction punches and regenerative methods like partial FUE cause less damage to the scalp and reduce scar tissue formation. Such techniques are highly specialised, practically demanding, and require more time; hence, rarely found at other hair transplant clinics. Yet, this approach will give you the freedom to choose your hairstyle for years to come, including short hair at the back and sides, without the worry of visible scarring in your donor areas. Plus, if you experience future hair loss and require further treatment, chances are there will be plenty of healthy follicles remaining in your donor sites.

Hairline transplant FAQs

Good candidates for hairline transplants are individuals with thinning hair, receding and early receding hairlines, or balding in the frontal hairline area. The candidacy depends on factors like the extent of hair loss, donor hair availability, and overall health. Dr Mark Tam will be able to provide guidance during your assessment.

Recovery times can vary, but most patients can resume normal activities within a week or two after the procedure. It may take several months for the transplanted hair to fully grow in and achieve the desired appearance. Dr Tam is able to provide more specific information on a patient by patient basis.

Like any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects associated with hair transplants, including infection, scarring, and temporary shock loss (loss of existing hair around the transplant site). Dr Mark Tam will discuss all of these possible side effects with you, how to best mitigate them, and provide personalised post-operative care instructions.

The results of a hairline transplant are typically long-lasting, as the transplanted hair follicles are usually resistant to the effects of DHT (dihydrotestosterone), which is responsible for male pattern baldness. However, individual results may vary, and some patients may require touch-up procedures over time.

Most patients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure thanks to local anesthesia. After the procedure, you may have some mild discomfort or soreness, which can be managed with prescribed medications.

During a consultation with Dr Mark Tam you will discuss your hair loss concerns, medical history, and desired outcome. Dr Tam will assess your candidacy for the procedure and provide recommendations based on your individual needs.
