I have a very pronounced widow’s peak. The hair at my temples is very far back and as a woman it makes me look like I have a man’s receding hairline. Is it possible to fill in the temple area with a hair transplant and how would this be done?
In our practice we treat a lot of women, both for thinning and for unusual hairlines. The particular problem you mentioned is easily corrected with hair transplantation to the temporal bald areas. You can design the hairline that is most satisfactory for you and then you get the hair either by follicular unit extraction technique or by a strip method from the back of the head and then place the hairs into the newly designed hairline area. This hair would then grow naturally and look perfectly normal and would integrate very well with the existing widow’s peak and hairline.
