16 Year Old Male Considers Hair Transplant Hairline Lowering Procedure

Question:

I'm a 16 year old male and I've always had a high, a-symmetrical hairline. I've been looking back at some old school pictures, and I look like an idiot. I'm trying to grow out my hair, but it's not really turning out so good at the moment because my hair's pretty curly. Can I have my hairline lowered and adjusted? Am I old enough?

Answer:

Honestly, you are way too young to even consider any kind of hairline adjustment, hairline lowering, or hair transplant procedure.

Androgenic Alopecia (male pattern baldness) is a condition that typically starts affecting males in their early to mid 20s and continues over time. Since you are only 16, there are just too many question marks as to what the future of your hair holds. If you haven't experienced any hair loss or only a little by the time you are close to 30, start researching and consulting with hair restoration physicians about your hairline lowering options. In the meantime, you have your whole life ahead of you. If you don't like your hairline, consider alternative hairstyles that will help conceal the areas you are unhappy with.
