Hair line design is very personal, as is choosing your doctor, there are many quality doctors out there all offering variants on hair line design and placement; so deciding who is right for you is down to choice.
There can be no Carte Blanche “one hair line fits all”, of course their are genetic and ethnic traits to be followed but they are guidelines to creation. Placement and density must be discussed prior to the hair transplant as some doctors prefer a certain way and you as the patient must ensure you and the doc understand what you are looking for. Age appropriate hair lines are not just important when you are older, you may not feel comfortable with closed temples and a thick wall of hair in your forties, but maybe more important when younger. When younger you have vivid memories of a full head of hair, and this maybe your goal again, young adolescent line and thickness; but remember that the new line will not move and sometimes better to be a little conservative than go all out to capture the way you looked in your teens.
There are many factors that contribute, age, hair loss stage, potential for future loss (hard to always measure) donor hair density and your donor hair characteristics; all play an important role on what is and is not possible.
This patient is in his early thirties, I will post pictures with more face so you can get a better idea of design in relation to his facial structure.
