Hair loss affects a huge number of American men, and many men will spare no expense to try to correct their receding hairlines. Possible remedies for receding hairlines now abound and range widely in terms of cost and effectiveness. These include advertised sprays and hair products.

Here’s a more effective and grounded medical solution for this problem: get a safe hair transplant from a qualified medical professional with a lot of training. Let’s consider two hair transplant categories: Follicular Unit Transplants (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). 

In FUT procedures, the doctor takes a long strip of hair from another part of the head, dissected into hair grafts, and places it on the bald or thinning area.

FUE is a newer procedure used for hair transplants, and not all hair transplant doctors perform it. In an FUE hair transplant, hair grafts are extracted without leaving a linear scar. Hairs are taken from a small shaved patch in the back of the head. The procedure will leave a small wound, which will be visible for a short time before it heals and grows more hair.

An FUE doctor can create a natural looking hairline using FUE hair restoration to minimize the visible effects in other parts of the head.
