Although it’s often overlooked, restoring desirable facial proportion is one of the most important aspects of hair transplant surgery.
However, recreating proportion via new hairlines and follicular unit graft placement is not an easy task. Because of this, recommended hair transplant surgeon Dr. Parsa Mohebi recently took the opportunity to explain the importance of facial proportion and how it’s achieved through meticulous hair restoration surgery:
Hair restoration today is more than just simply a proven treatment for hair loss. In most cases, hair transplant surgery enhances their facial symmetry and proportion. This can make a dramatic difference to a person’s overall appearance, and improve their lives in many ways.
It was the famous artist Michelangelo (not the Ninja Turtle) who said there is a “rule of thirds” when observing the proportions of a human’s face. The “thirds” are evenly spaced sections, with the hairline acting as the top of the frame and the chin acting as the bottom of the frame. These evenly spaced sections: the hairline to the top of the eyebrow, the top of the eyebrow to the base of the nose, and the base of the nose to the bottom of the chin, are what give the face the aesthetically pleasing and well aligned appearance. If there happens to be any inconsistency with these proportions, it can cause the face to look misaligned. Specifically, if the hairline is recessed beyond the optimal starting point, most individuals will look older than they actually are.
When the “rule of thirds” is applied, a skilled hair transplant surgeon can achieve perfect hairline replacement and its proper starting point. Each patient is treated individually to create their ideal proportion and facial symmetry unique to that unique individual. Incorporating artistry and surgical hair transplant training, the new hairline will replicate the natural pattern of growth, and frame the face perfectly.
If you or someone you know has any interest in obtaining more information on options to naturally and permanently construct “the perfect hairline”, we encourage you to visit a qualified hair transplant surgeon. The answer you are looking for may be available through modern day hair transplant surgery.
