The controversial topic of dense packing a large amount of follicular units into a young hair transplant patient’s hairline has been discussed in great deal on our hair restoration forum. The additional risks of further hair loss in young men and a limited donor hair supply sometimes make transplanting too many grafts into the hairline impossible without risking the possibility of an unnatural looking hair loss pattern in the future. While dense packing the hairline sounds good short term, is it responsible for hair replacement surgeons to reproduce a patient’s youthful hairline? Are there any exceptions to the above rule? What about for religious reasons?
New forum member “MrCool20” started a topic to discuss the possibility of restoring his youthful hairline with hair transplant surgery for religious reasons.
